I would definitely recommend it to my friends. The only problem is parking. There is public parking around the hostel. But it's by hour.

Stayed in the 4 bed dorms and it was really good. Nice room and adequate facilities. The kitchen area is nice as well.


Friendly and helpful staff, the property is very close to the station. Excellent place to stay.


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!
