    Decided to visit Fukuoka and stay here on a friend's recommendation. It was an overall awesome experience. The staff was super warm and friendly and the standing bar downstairs was so good that I almost didn't want to go anywhere else most nights. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Fukuoka.

    Everything great! Fabulous stay overall. Few minus points such as no lockers and noises from the bar below could be heard in the dorm room.

    Great hostel, very clean and organized. Everything feels new and the beds are some of the best I've seen in a hostel. The curtain gives full privacy and there is a little cubbie for your backpack or suitcase so you don't have leave it on your bed. The two big downsides are the lack of bathroom on the third floor, and even worse is the door lock for each room. It's incredibly loud and annoying to open, try not to be in a bed near the door or go to the bathroom often at night. Overall good hostel.

    Pros: Facilities are clean and nice. The showers were nice and strong. Towel, shampoo/conditioner/body wash/soap included, which is a plus considering it was a hostel. The common area provides basic kitchen essentials and is comfy enough. The beds have curtains, lights, and a USB port for charging, so you get some privacy. Cons: There are no lockers. The rooms are locked with a key code but anyone staying in the same room has access to your belongings. The staff speak very limited English.

    A pleasant place to stay! The staff were really friendly, the facilities were clean and very comfortable, and the restaurant on the first floor created a fun atmosphere to go downstairs and socialize with other guests. The parts I didn't like so much were the check-in & check-out times(4pm check-in & 10am check-out), only cash at the restaurant (typical for Japan) yet you can pay via card for the hostel. Location is good, (moderate) walking distance to Tenji Shopping area and Fukuoka castle.

    I enjoyed my stay here, the staff were friendly although they did not have any english but i got around with my limited japanese! my shared room was much smaller than the usual dormitories ive been in with just 4 beds, so it was a bit too intimate as it was me and 3 other boys, but they were very nice and very quiet, and i had no problems at all. just a nice pleasant stay. this hostel is quite small so i would suggest staying elsewhere if you are staying in fukuoka long term,!

    More bar than hostel, more for natives than travelers (staff has really bad english-asked about breakfast first morning, was told only for guests, they looked at the wrong room to find me, finally got food, after 10 minutes arguing), people constantly talking outside your door at midnight, and people trying to use the stupid keypad to get into the room at all hours of the night. You sleep with your luggage, so if 5'5" or taller, have fun, and no where for valuables. DO NOT RECOMMEND
