Favourite Hostel in Japan”

The location is perfect, walking distance from Tenjin and the nightlife of Fukuoka, nearby bus station and subway connects you to everything else very easily. The cafe and bar downstairs, and the common room upstairs, are a great place to meet other travelers or locals if you are traveling solo. The whole hostel gets cleaned everyday so bathrooms and bedrooms are spotless, beds are comfortable and have a curtain for privacy. The rooms also have a locker you can use to store your small valuables in like passport, wallet or electronics. The staff here are easily the most fun people I’ve ever met. Always down to swap stories and provide recommendations. Can’t wait till the next time I’m in Fukuoka to visit Su, Anna, Pei Ying, Yuya, Keisuke, and the rest of my The LIFE Hostel and Bar friends! Cheers!

The best hostel!”

The newest and clean facilities, friendly staffs, great guests! Everything was perfect. The location was also great that it's possible to go Hakata, Tenjin, and Gion station on foot. The Canal City is right next to the hostel. I met a lot of nice friends there as well, which made my trip more special. If I go to Fukuoka next time, I will definitely stay in the Life hostel again!

Great for solo travelers”

Very pleased with my stay at this hostel for a weekend getaway. Located within the city center, it has quick access to a subway line connected to the airport (just a 5-7minute walk), has a 24/7 convenience store just right next to it, and is walking distance from Canal City Hakata. Especially great also for foreign tourists as the staff speak English fluently. Found the bar menu a bit pricey, but was expecting that from any ho(s)tel. Overall very satisfied and would book again if I ever come back to Fukuoka.

Good Place with Good People”

Location is great. Almost close to everything: hakata station, canal city, temples. Check-in time is at 4PM. It would be great if they would make it earlier. But anyways, you can leave your luggage and go around. Having a USB outlet in the bed is also recommended. Place is nice to rest and also good to meet other travelers specially the common area in the lounge. Grab a beer an chat with the others. Staffs are SUper friendly and SUper accommodating! Special mention to SU! SUgoi ne! Would definitely recommend to solo travellers. Never made the wrong choice when I decided to change hostel and stayed in THE LIFE! またね

Perfect service without frills”

I was worried if I would be put on the ground floor room but luckily I was placed in 204. The place was vivid yet calm to welcome its guests. The 4 bed room was occupied with one perskn only and it stayed that way for the rest of the night. Good shower facilities and washrooms and ice cold water jug in lounge area was a huge plus. I will definitely consider returning to this place if I travel alone again to Fukuoka. Thank you for your kind and professional service!

Common area is well designed to meet other travelers. Interior designs are interesting! Omoshiroi! It would been much better to have a USB outlet also for charging by the bed. Never made it wrong when I decided to transfer to this hostel. Bar lounge is cool for party yet bedrooms are comfortable for sleeping too; noise even party is going on. Would definitely stay in this hostel if I’ll visit Fukuoka again. Matane! またね

Beautiful facility! ”

Part of the first floor is a bar or cafe and had a really nice atmosphere. You can go upstairs to the 2nd floor for a common space with kitchen and futons which waa also very well-decorated and had a good ambience. The toilet and shower facility was kept clean and was convenient to use too. :) The room itself is a bit small and the upper deck had no roof or cover on top so it was too bright when the light of the room is still turned on. But besides the caveat, once you’re on your bed, I liked that the the sheets were clean and the bed-side light had cozy feeling. Overall, I liked the place with its convenient location between Hakata and Tenjin.

Best Hostel in Fukuoka and probably in Japan”

Excellent! It is a brand new hostel and only 10-15 mins. walk from Hakata JR Station or 6-8 mins from Gion subway station. It is very clean and the staff is very friendly. If 2 things could be improved, it will be perfect. Should ask the guest to keep quite in the common room after midnight (some Korean young people stay at the common room in 2/F until 5:00 a.m. and kept making a lot of noise.); if the temperature in the room could be set a little bit lower, so that not that hot in the room during day time. Anyway, definitely will stay here again and highly recommend.

Cool hostel in the heart of Hakata”

First up, such a stylish decor, this place feels cool! The staff are great, and speak very good English. The rooms are a good size, with plenty of space for luggage. Everything is secure with a front door code for after midnight and codes for each bedroom. The shower facilities are clean, and all other amenities are good. Plus, this place is only a few minutes walk from Hakata station one way, and the yatai food stalls the other, so wherever you end up, you feel close by to the hostel. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you for a great stay!

Cool place to chill”

Quite convenient location, about 10 mins walk from Hakata Station, very near to malls and shopping streets. It is also about 5 mins walk to Nakasu if that is your thing. The ambiance is cool and kinda speakeasy, and even the staff are also cool. They speak English well. Bed are clean, and quite comfy for me, I often overslept during my stay. (However Japanese pillows are hard) Shower room and toilets are clean, and there is pantry with microwave and fridge for you to put your food. The door lock is a bit noisy as you have to punch in the code, other than that this is a good place to stay.

The guesthouse is located right between the Hakata station and Canal City, one couldn't be more central in Hakata. the facilities are great and very clean, spacious beds and shower rooms are a great plus for the guesthouse. the 3 or 4 members of staff I met were polite, but did not exactly go out of their way to help me - didn't even tell me about a big firework event the night I stayed there when I talked to them

Location was fine, not really close to Hakata station but right next to Canal city. The place is modern and well-designed, especially shared areas were great. Staffs were welcoming. Restrooms and shower booths were also clean and I didn't find it so busy when I used it. The bar on the ground floor also had good vibes, and there was convenience store nearby so you can buy things in there. One thing is that the noise from the door opening is extremely bothering. Earplug is a must. Generally great experience. I would come here again!

Surprise me a lot! I am not intend to stay in hostel during my holiday with my BF. Due to the Japanese public holiday, it was very full booking in Hakata, so what I only found just a new hostel with private toilet(which is important to me). However, it is very beautiful and modern hostel with reasonable price and great living standard. I may go there again :)

I stayed here for 1 night I was kind of worried that I saw so many complains about the noise at the bar at night When I was there, the bar wasn't that noisy but lot of people stayed at this hostel so there was so many people coming out from and into the room. The rooms' doors closed so loud I could here inside my room people were keep coming and going from the room and not hold the door to not make the noise in the middle of the night(I woke up because of this at 3am even though I was wearing a ear plug) I was so anoid with the people If you are a light sleeper, don't come here. The location was perfect, close to hakata station and canal city. I liked the atmosphere of the bar too.

Was fancy interior and quite spacious. I arrived quite late and the problem here is u need to do your own mattress,pillow and futon cover arrangement, which is not good, because just imagine how will u make it quietly while everyone are sleeping. Location wise is perfect, near with Gion, Hakata, and if u miss last train after partying in Tenjin, u can just walk back to the hostel.
