Akari staff are its best asset - really informative, friendly and efficient. A great activity they offer is free guided walks with a local - Tomoko took ours and was lovely. Hostel is comfortable, very clean and in a convenient and pretty position by the river. Highly recommended.

Very well setup hostel near the central train station. Rooms are very clean. There is a nice lounge, kitchen and little reading room. The staff are very nice and helpful. They have detailed listings of tourist activities in town, possible day trips and transportation schedules, very useful.

Akari has nice Japanese style rooms and is good value for your money overall. Short walk to the centre. The only minus was they kicked us out from the common room immediately at 11 when we wanted to stay for a while to use the wi-fi. Usually not a problem in hostels. Otherwise the staff was very helpful and spoke good English.

Had a fantastic stay with Akari - amazing location in front of the Nakashiwa river and a short stroll away from Nagasaki's excellent night life and best food area. Staff were very kind and obliging and the hostel itself is exactly what you would want - great facilities with clean and spacious rooms. ありがとうございます Akari!

Hostel is easy reached by tram from the station. We had a warm welcome. Guys seem to be somewhat hooked on The Netherlands :) they even have typically Dutch bikes for rent. Nagasaki is not that big, so many things can be reached by foot from the hostel. Private room was spacious. Kitchen had everything we needed.

Nice location, only 1 minute walk from tram stop and few minutes walk from attractions. Staffs are very friendly and the place is nice and cozy. Nothing to dislike.

an excellent hostel! the map provided with comments from the staff was a great feature, it helped us discover places we never would have found ourselves. the staff were extremely helpful and the walking tour they orgainse helped to create a great atmosphere amongst both staff and guests.

We had a wonderful stay at this hostel! The staff are very nice and helpful and the location couldn't be better. We particularly loved their map of the surrounding area, highlighting every single ramen restaurant in a ten-block radius, their top restaurant picks, and so many other useful things. We particularly loved their recommendations for vegetarian-friendly restaurants--Malay's 16-veg curry was amazing! Wish we could have rented bikes but they didn't have any available--inquire early.

Easy to find and excellent location, staff very helpful and polite. The hostel is a bit dated and noisy sliding doors, the rooms are warm but in the common area bloody freezing.

I stayed in twin private room - ensuite just one night. I'm impressed with the young male staff which can communicate in English very well. For me, the location is quite fair because 1. The pro - it's located quite far from the train station, you have to ride the tram or taxi 2. The con - there is a canal and temple in front of the hostel and the shopping/walking street is very near. And there is no elevator, so you have to bring your big luggage up and down the ladder ( for me 3 floor)

great place but could probably do with more seating in the common room area.
