1.HafH Fukuoka THE LIFE opened its doors on February 1st, 2020.
HafH Fukuoka THE LIFE is a flagship store of the flat-rate residence service “HafH”, which opened in the center of Fukuoka on February 1, 2020. The concept is “a place where each person’s LIFE intersects.” It is a place where people of different nationalities, religions, genders, and family backgrounds can feel welcome, whether they are looking for a change of pace while working, dropping by during a run, visiting Fukuoka as a destination, or simply wandering without purpose. The aim is to create a place where many people’s “LIFE” mix and mingle, making it a place where people want to say “I’m home” every time they visit. HafH Fukuoka THE LIFE hopes to serve as a hub for those traveling to Kyushu, other prefectures, or Asia, similar to an airport lounge.
The facility is located within walking distance of Hakata Station, the heart of Fukuoka City, and adjacent to the popular large-scale shopping mall “Canal City Hakata” and the sauna “Well-be Hakata.” It is also very convenient for getting to Tenjin and Nakasu, both of which are within walking distance. Additionally, a new subway station is scheduled to open in front of the facility in 2022.
Perfect for family and friend group trips. Up to 6 people can stay in the same room. The terrace, which also serves as a sub-entrance, offers rental bicycles for your use.
◼︎Starting Rental Bicycle Services
In collaboration with “Bike is life.”, a bicycle shop in Asakura City, Fukuoka, we will provide rental bicycle services at the entrance of the facility, with the hope that guests will explore every nook and cranny of Fukuoka city on locally-made bicycles.
Facility Overview: Name: HafH Fukuoka THE LIFE Location: 1-13 Gion-machi, Hakata-ku, Fukuoka City, First Prince Building Area: 1st floor 314.26㎡ , 2nd floor 634.04㎡ Number of Beds: 101 beds in total (44 dormitory beds, 10 private rooms with a capacity of 2 people, 3 private rooms with a capacity of 5 people, and 2 private rooms with a capacity of 6 people)
