I just got back from a 3 nights at Guest House Kaine (actually pronounced kai-ne) in Fukuoka. We walked to Kaine from Hakata station on a sunny Saturday afternoon. It was a breezy 20-25 minute walk which is completely doable if you have a trolley bag/back pack. A room in the shared dorms only costs 2500 yen per night. Which is kinda standard for guest houses/hostels in Japan.
We were showed around the hostel by a lovely lady named Mizue. She provided us with maps and some tips on where to go in Fukuoka. On the first night two of us slept in the 5 bed male dorm, it was a decent size and the futons were comfortable. On the second and third nights three of us slept in a private 3 futon room on the ground floor near the washroom. I had no complaints at all about noise from other guests and slept well.
On Sundays there is a little dinner party for the hostel guests and we got to make tako yaki with 3 lovely Canadians, who we went out for a drink with afterwards.
The hostel is in a great location, near the yatais and the night life in Tenjin.
