    For a dormitory with shared bathroom, this one is very very clean (when compared to others I have tried in other countries)! It is located a few blocks from Kokura Station. You can just walk to get there.

    Private room - would recommend ”

    I stayed in a twin room with my family. The room was very clean and very spacious. It was also well furnished and decorated. I really liked the interior design of the hostel. The common area was very comfortable and people were able to relax without feeling constrained. Staff were all very friendly.

    Adorable!”

    ARK BLUE Hotel is really impressive! 1. Staffs : All staffs are super kind and let me know where to visit kindly(restaurants, entertainments ...). 2. Room Conditions : I was staying at Double-room(not semi-double), It's quite comfortable, clean and cozy to stay(It's not too huge but enough to stay!). Especially, a well-designed room give me good memories. 3. Location : The hotel is located in the city center but it takes 10~15 min from the hotel to Kokura Station by walk. 4. Extra Services : You can use a free common bath for 24 hours and a free breakfast service(curry and toast). and they can offer you a bike-rental service(maybe 500yen/1day). Anyway, I'm definitely satisfied with staying this hotel. I wanna come back to this city for staying here again.

    Chic hostel: Good value for money ”

    The room was even better and well lit than some business hotels. Our window faced the mountain and the bathhouse was also a plus. Minus: the front desk opens quite late, after 10am, the cafe has to deal with everything. Breakfast queuing line is badly designed around the big table, with rice and pickles and salad scattered here and there with no sense, so ppl who wants to take seats will clash with the crowd running around the table for food. the bed rack was a bit dusty. It is ten mins walk from the JR station. For those who want convenience this may not be your choice.

    quaint little hostel/hotel”

    although I was there only one night, I loved this place and would definitely stay again. the staff is superb! they have everything on property listed in korean, japanese and english. the place actually has a distinctly korean feel (there is an onsite jimjilbang in the basement level) so it was no surprise to learn that they have a location in Korea as well. the only reason I have to short a star from cleanliness is because there were some large roaches in the shower area. it's a basement level and often dark and damp so it makes sense, however i despise roaches and they were big ones. needless to say I would stay here again~~

    I am a budget traveler and stayed in the female sharing room. I was pleasantly surprised how wonderful this place is. It is very clean, the amenities are excellent and the price is very reasonable. From the mattress, to their toilet and the cafe they have in the hotel—everything is a delight. I have stayed in other sharing rooms this month in Japan, those pale in comparison to this place. This place is definitely worth a stay.

    Big room”

    The environment is more of a co-working live/work facility in a trendy design. We love the vibe of the place with young millennials around. Plus our room was the largest we ever had in Japan at that price range. However parking was in public lots just outside hotel and a little expensive.

    it was the best choice with the price.”

    well.. I don't know where to start. I arrived there earlier than expected but they welcomed with warm heart and took my luggage (of course, they mentioned they will put it in front of the desk but they will not have any responsibility for it.). and they were strict to check-in. only after 3pm was available to check-in.(but still I can walk around there, take some rest also) when I check-in, they explained one by one for sure and there was an event when you follow their instagram, then I can get some amenities? towels and so on but without mentioning those things, amenities(small hair brush, tooth brush, hair gum, and ear plug) were free to take. it is also in front of the front desk and elevator. but it was not possible to take bath towel and bubble because of out of stock. anyway, they gave me one more face towel(even if it was already prepared at the bed for me) in general, the place everywhere in this hostel(hotel) was so clean. can't find any dirty things. and breakfast was good.

    The Best Guesthouse Ever”

    This is hands down the best guesthouse I've ever stayed at. The facilities are very clean and modern, with a kind of playful urban style. The beds are roomy, come with their own privacy curtains, and each have their own light and outlets to plug in your devices. The amenities include a large bathing area to soak in if you want. Also, at the front of the guesthouse is a huge community area with tables for you to use, and includes a restaurant you can order food from, if you like. Staff are very friendly, and can generally speak Japanese, Korean, and English.

    This place is awesome and really affordable. But as a solo traveler a rather lonely place. Full of couples or Korean travelers. Traveling with a friend I would definitely return, otherwise I would find another place where i can potentially meet people.
