The location is good, not too far from the station. Friendly staff. The hostel have a discount card for some of the attractions in nagasaki and it's a plus.


If you don't mind walking, it's a nice location near the eyeglass bridge. The private ensuite was very nice and had a lot of space. I liked the security features!


Nice clean place to stay, staff verty helpful. Not far from train ststion, short tram drive.


Great palce to stay in Nagasaki. Staff were friendly and spoke english well. Highly recommend.


Staff are incredibly helpful and when you find the hostel they have a great local map of the area.


We felt very welcome at the Akari. The room (with private shower and toilet) was much bigger than we were expecting. There was enough room for both of us, two large suitcases and two backpacks. The staff have very good English and were all really friendly. Guests are given a map of the local area with details on local restaurants, bars and sites at check-in. Check-in and out were easy (staff insisted on carrying our heavy suitcases to our 4th floor room!). Highly recommended.

The hostel was nice and also the staffs. It has a great location where we can walk around for sightseeing. But 4 floors without elevator is a little tired for carrying luggages. The dorm room size is ok but the air condition was really hot!! There are 2 bathrooms on the 4th but the inside one has a very bad air ventilation so its a little smelly. Well i like this hostel. If i have another chance to Nagasaki, i'll stay here.


Service? Never ever. They offer facilities... Unfriendly is a polite word for them.


One of the best hostels we stayed in Japan! Amazing location right next to the river, lovely traditional style rooms, nice kitchen area, very clean and tidy. We would definitely stay again!


Very friendly staff, clean hostel, very nice location. Unfortunately there was no guided tour when we stayed.


pretty good


Staff were super helpful and gave us a fantastic map of the area with sights, restaurants etc. We stayed in the dorm but for Japan standards this was not a great dorm. Beds were hard and no space to store your luggage (locker eg)


Friendly staff, clean and c


The place is ok but nothing special. Internet only in the living room or first floor. Good for 1 or 2 nights.


Extremely friendly staff and the facilities were great ie the bathrooms and rooms. Cleanliness level was really impressive. Although the wifi strength and range was not as strong but it was still a fantastic stay overall.

Free computers, really nice.


A nice Hostel at a central but rather quiet location. Wifi was not working very well during my stay, I was upgraded for a 3-bed-"dorm" for the first night. In this room I could not use the wifi -.- There is a community room with a kitchen, a very good place to meet other travelers. The hostel was lean, the staff was friendly and understood english quite good.


Nice place. Nothing to complain about.


Easy to find. Very central. Clean and comfortable.


I stayed there for just one night. Security felt fine mainly because it's Japan. Location is down the middle of main attractions and the airport. The staff were helpful and not intrusive. It was a calm place with a wide age range staying there. It was affordable for Japan. Two showers and toilets for 8+ people but it never seemed to be a problem. Overall a relaxing and trustworthy place
