International Hostel Khaosan Fukuoka is very nice. I booked a 4-person mix bedroom at the beginning but their staff helped me to upgrade it to 2-person bedroom without requesting additional fee. The location of the hostel is a little far away from the nearest railway station but the it is acceptable. Most importantly, staffs and travellers are from all over the world and we stay in one hostel. It likes a small international village with delighting and harmonious atmosphere.

This hostel is not bad to stay if you don't have the big luggage and mind for walking 15 mins. The thing I like here is Hotto Motto (Japanese hot and fast meal) and Lawson (convenient store) nearby the location. And if you planning for having day trip in other city. This hostel is near the HAKATA station where you have to take outbound train. Quite convenient but a bit far from subway and station.

I stayed in a single room on the ground floor which was just opposite to the toilet and the sink and near the reception. It's just annoying when people talking loudly and using hair dryer after 12am... Staff were friendly. The hostel was actually not close to the JR station.

Awesome people there and very friendly, especially for the staff. The Takoyaki Party was great! I have visited quite a few hostels in Japan and International Hostel Khaosan Fukuoka is is certainly among the best!

As far as hostels go, it was okay. One note, however: the directions listed on their website were extremely misleading. I guess they copied and pasted the text directly into Google translate. Get a Fukuoka tourist map and you can find the place listed on the map. It is the cheapest hostel listed online, but it is also quite a hike from Hakata Station.

Good hostel, great location. We booked for a 5 bed dorm and had a 3 bed to ourselves for a night which was nice. The location is definitely a draw card for this one.

Staff could be a bit more friendlier and helpful. Cleanliness was the worst of all the hostels I've been to.

Nice place, good location, good staff - all a traveller needs. Only issue was one guy in the room the first two nights - wouldn't go to bed and sleep. Not the hostels problem but maybe a policy of lights out at 12 would be an idea ( and don't keep turning them on when you come in and out of the room at 1 am, 2 am, 3am .

A great stay on a comfortable bed. Thank you!

Excellent value for money. The location could be better and like many hostels in Japan it can be noisy because of the somewhat flimsy walls, but besides that this is a very nice hostel.

A really nice hostel, located about a 10-15 minute walk from JR Hakata. The kitchen facilities are great, the shower was powerful, and the beds were SO comfortable. The guy working at reception was friendly. I really enjoyed my two nights here. I didn't have a chance to socialise but I got the impression that it's a very social hostel. It has nice communal areas.

Good place, not in the most central location but if you don't mine a 10-15 minute walk then it is okay. Nice facilities, kind and knowledgeable staff.

It's a cheap hostel, so don't expect spacious rooms or much privacy! all the staff are friendly and helpful, the common rooms are very nice and it's not too far from Hakata station (just be prepared to walk for about 15 mind) Would definitely recommend for any short trip to fukuoka!

Didn't like the hostel. Staff was nice, friendly and helpful but the 4 bed dorm was really crappy, shower facilities were not good as well (just a curtain separating the different showers). Location was not good, 10 to 15 min walk from the JR station but far from area were everything happens in Fukuoka. All in all, if you want to spend as less as possible stay here otherwise don't do it.

Very pleasant communal area and well-equipped kitchen. Access to a washing machine AND a large rooftop drying area was also a great plus. Clean dorms with lockers. Tons of travel info available. Very good place overall.
