    The hostel is about 10-15 minute walk from the ferry terminal and a 5 minute walk to the nearest bus stop, very convenient location! The rooms were clean and comfortable and the architecture was very unique. The owner was also very friendly! I highly recommend this hostel for any one who wants to stay in fukuoka on a budget

    I really enjoyed my stay at Minato. I heard that the archetecture is over 150 year old. They renovate the place in a good way. It was nice to sleep in a traditional house. The owner is fun to talk with. He gave me useful recommendations about Yatai, so I could meet nice locals and have tasty Fukuoka food. I highly recommend this place.

    Harborside Guest House MINATO is a great place to stay. I love that it's a traditional Japanese house. It has so much character. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the closest subway station which isn't ideal, but not difficult. I would stay here again if I go to Fukuoka.

    superb accomodation. the owner renovated old japanese house into very cozy neat space. the staff member welcomes you like your old brother, as well as warm people in its neighbourhood make you feel like home. complete cleaness and tidyness they supply are well worth respected.

    The place itself is a charming old building, but the facilities are modern. Pretty easy to get to from Hakata or Tenjin. the landlord is fluent in English and very helpful and helped me and my friend plan out a lot of our trip. There is a strict curfew at 11pm, but you're free to come and go as you please. Overall highly recommend it :)

    The staff were all pretty welcoming and energetic, which was a huge plus if you like to socialize. It is, however, pretty far from either of the main stations (Hakata and Tenjin), so a little inconvenient if you are taking the bus late at night or early in the morning. The building itself is quite nice, though - just clean and open. However, it is a bit of an old place, so stairs creak and you have to respect quiet time - even shower times have rules. Still a nice place and I enjoyed my stay.

    It's a lovely and cozy hostel with a very nice owner, patient and kind. The only things that not let it be perfect is that there's not much space for backpack or luggage store at the rooms, and that you must to be very quiet cause you can here every little noise. Apart from that we did really enjoy the place, very good amenities with small kitchen if you want to cook some breakfast or so and great showers.

    Room condition and staff are very good. But I can't sleep because it's too noisy. So I think hair dryer using time too late. But hostel's fare is so cheap and clean.

    I chose this hotel (a little far from big stations) for the bicycle rental @ ¥300. I got up early to rent one before other guests booked it (no prebooking). However the bike was too old and not roadworthy. Window had no curtain! There were semi-transparent shades and other guests could see straight in at night! No key was given for the room door - safety issue? Receptionist weirdly started humming as I was leaving the 1st morning. Shown 2 A4 pages of house rules - should be on the site advert

    Do NOT stay here. The staff is extremely rude. The owner is super unwelcoming and mean. When I checked in I really needed to use the bathroom and he was hesitant to let me use it and the Wi-Fi because it wasn’t 4pm yet. He also is super strict about check out time (I was checking out only 11 minutes late) and was super rude and told me to get out! Awful location close to nothing. No good lobby or meeting area. Beds super hard. There were strict rules about everything and the owner is rude!
