Great overall. Didnt have any problem. Very clean.


Good location, 10mins from Hakata station. Nice enough place but everything just seemed to be a bit broken, also kitchen had a funny smell. Beds were comfy though and staff were friendly :)


Strategic location in Fukuoka town with clean and comfortable rooms.


stayed 2 times in this hostel, pleasant experiences, preferred the female bunk beds than the mix bunks :)

They have a lot of foreign staff who work here as cleaning staff in exchange for free accommodation. The staff have a get together like once a week or something in the common room. If you get lucky enough to experience that, it's quite nice. The hostel is rather poorly located (ten mins east of the station when everything was west). But, I enjoyed it overall. Any place with only 4 bed dorms is unlikely to disappoint, and this is no exception!


너무좋아요 버스타면 바로앞에서내리고


Stayed there for just one night and was overall quite happy with the place. Was able to meet some great people at the dorms and common room. Be careful if you have big and heavy items with you because there are no elevators and the lockers are small. Bathrooms are on select floors and come with shower gel and shampoo. Wifi was reliable. Kitchen had condiments you could use for free.

I really enjoyed this hostel. Myself and three friends booked one of the private four bed rooms and it was more than adequate for our needs and we had some privacy with a locking door. The staff was very helpful in recommending restaurants and onsen to try out. I definitely recommend hitting up the Isso Ramen shop just down the road from here. You can walk there and the ramen was phenomenal!


Overall a fine hostel


Not the best Khaosan around, but far from terrible. The location leaves much to be desired and some 4 bed dorms are really cramped and have crappy iron beds (other dorms have newer ones though). The most ridiculous thing by far is that the top bunk bed in one of these rooms is directly under the AC unit, you literally sleep right next to it!?


this can be used as a great base to go traveling around kyushu, that is what i used it for as was easy to go see places from there.


i enjoy staying at this hostel. it's clean and the kitchen is fully equipped. only one thing about free available PC which is slow speed. location is good actually. and i don't have any problem for finding out the hostel because i took the bus directly from airport which is just 4 bus stop.....it's so convenient !!! wanna stay here again if have chance.


Stinky in the room.


Professionally ran, very clean and affordable.


Dorm is a shoe box with four creaky beds cramped in, no character, staff not very friendly. Real downer.


Nice staff and good value. But not enough showers, having to go 3 floors down to shower is too much in my opinion. But other than that a very good Hostel!


had a lovely stay. everything was great, clean environment, fun and kind staff, great atmosphere and peaceful at night. the hostel was hard to find at first but the locals are very kind and helpful.


Really friendly and helpful staff. On the top of that good values in terms of money. A bit far from Hakata Station. However I rented a bike and it made my day. Basically I just went around the city by bike


Just stayed one night after a late flight into Fukuoka. Our experience was fine, but during the night we heard a guest arguing with what sounded like a staff member for being too loud night after night. I hadn't noticed any noise before the argument, but it didn't really affect my stay at all.

the room is very tiny, stayed in 4 bed mixed and you cannot even walk to your bed with a backpack on bc you have to squeeze between 2 beds.. other than that the wifi worked, there's a locker to put your day bad in, showers were nice, common room downstairs also nice..the location is kind of far is you want to go out to a bar or walk through downtown..
