    Couldn't recommend this place any more for people visiting Fukuoka. It's in a fantastic neighbourhood about 20 mins on the train from the centre and the hotel is really perfect for travellers. Staff were extremely friendly and the rooms were excellent for the price we paid. The only slight issue is that it is a real pain to find, there are directions on the booking page but they are not accurate. It took myself and a friend about 45 mins to actually find the hotel.

    This was a half hostel half hotel, first 2 floors are hostel, the rest up to 8th floor are private rooms with ensure. I got the private room, since the cost is very decent. They provided everything including toothbrush and pj’s. Free breakfast until 9:30. There’s separate women’s and men’s onsen and it’s not busy at all. Would stay here again if I go back to Kitakyushu.

    Amazing value hotel/hostel centered around a bright modern style cafe. Probably the best budget place I've stayed in 50 countries in 35 years it's just like a 3* hotel cafe is not overpriced by Japanese standards. Bed design is the only flaw never make beds out of metal for a quiet nights sleep especially if you have someone sleeping over the top of you makes for a restless night also Kokura is not the most exciting place. I spent 11 nights due to resting my back and the hostel is a classic !!

    If you like a hostel where there’s not too much going on then this is the place for you. The beds are nice and comfortable. Keep in mind that the ground floor of the hostel is actually a cafe throughout the day and it serves delicious food for a reasonable price. The best part about this hostel was the staff, they are extremely kind people and always greet with you with a warm smile. Yurika san was an absolute gem of a person and her welcoming smile is missed at any other hostel I go to.
