0.11km from Yoshinoya Hakata GionCheck-in staff were very helpful & kind. I recieved a message twice & it was such a pleasant greeting! I may get the name wrong but Sunmei was really cool. I forgot to take a photo with her. The lounge staff were professional, helpful & handsome! ☺️ I forgot my photo there as well. The music selection was enjoyable and suitable. 😩The hostel itself, I think could use a sign for the bathroom. It isn't easily found. A chinese guy peed in the sink in the laundry room. At night patrons were quite loud at times & the girls in my room didn't seem to care that others were trying to sleep and stay asleep (@ 2am -entered loud & rude). Also, a better defense against theft would be helpful (maybe an available locker room for luggage). Meeting great people & making new friends is a spice of life. The lounge and atmosphere creates & encourages it. Simply beautiful. Convenient location and easy to get around (plenty of maps & helpful people), whether it's a 3 day JR pass or the daily (bus, subway , train) pass. Overall , I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Life and my experience in Fukuoka (including my missed train back to Hakata station). I intend on visiting again and for long term but, it may be in a year or so. Thank you so much The Life, because I am living it!
