Best Fukuoka hostels

Top tips for finding the perfect Fukuoka hostel

Like much of Japan, Fukuoka has a hotel scene that is generally quite expensive. Opting to stay in a hostel in Fukuoka is a wise choice for the budget-conscious traveler, who can save money and also enjoy staying in a slightly more unique style of accommodation (think capsule dorms, cool cafés, and tatami-mat rooms). With a big backpacker and hosteling scene and plenty of centrally located properties to choose from, this is a great way to see this vibrant city without breaking the bank.
Although there are hostels scattered all over Fukuoka, the vast majority are concentrated in Hakata Ward. This is the center of the city, which includes smaller neighborhoods like Tenjin and Nakasu. Tenjin and wider Hakata Ward are well known for their shopping, dining, pulsing nightlife, and wealth of cultural novelties; guests staying in a hostel here will be located just steps away from all of these. Fukuoka International Airport is only about 12 min from Tenjin by car or public transport.
One of the best hostels in Fukuoka for couples is Webase Hakata Hostel, which has very popular private rooms designed somewhat like a pod hotel. Rooms are air-conditioned, the reception is 24h, and couples can relax on the rooftop terrace with a drink. For a different style of Japanese minimalism, private rooms with tatami mats and futon beds are available in Fukuoka Hana Hostel, which also has a number of Western-style twin bedrooms available.
Solo travelers have plenty to choose from when looking for a fun hostel in Fukuoka. Among the best, however, are &And hostel, Montan Hakata Hostel, and Bed Stock. &And hostel has a variety of cozy dorm rooms with lockers, shared bathrooms, and a lively bar downstairs. Montan Hakata Hostel is popular for its large co-working space, good Wi-Fi, and self-serve kitchen facilities, while Bed Stock is known for its capsule-like dorms, friendly staff, and relaxation areas where guests can get talking to each other.
