Final Fantasy XI: Kokba Hostel

StraddenStradden Managing EditorMember CommonPosts: 6,696

Final Fantasy XI has announced the opening of the in-game Kokba Hostel, a private room that players will be able to reserve for an hour. The room will be located in a Treasures of Aht Urhgan area.


In the upcoming version update, we will introduce the “Kokba Hostel,” a private room that players will be able to reserve for hour-long time slots.

The concept for the hostel has been developed along the lines of the Marble Bridge Eatery in Upper Jeuno--a place separate from the bustle of the city where players of the same job or race can meet their colleagues. In a similar vein, the Kokba Hostel has been designed to provide a space where adventurers can gather and relax with friends in a private setting.

Main features of the Kokba Hostel:

  • The hostel can be found in a Treasures of Aht Urhgan area.
  • Reservations can be made for one-hour slots (Earth time).
  • Each person who enters the hostel will be required to pay a fee. This fee will be set to an affordable amount.
  • Players can make reservations for up to two days in advance, but are limited to one reservation at a time. If the player who made a reservation fails to show, or no reservation has been made for the current time slot, it is possible to reserve the hostel on the spot.
  • During the hostel reception period, you will be asked to set a password. Only players who input this password will be able to enter the hostel during your reservation.
  • Players will be provided with a variety of temporary party items and food upon entering the hostel.

The hostel can be used for a wide range of functions such as linkshell group strategy meetings before an adventure, wedding receptions, or even a place to celebrate those Ballista victories! The choices are only limited by your imagination!

The developers have also released information on new areas, missions and quests for the expansion. Check it out here.
