The hostel is centrally located and easily accessible via the tram network. It takes around 15 min on the tram to get to the peace park and memorial museum. The beds were really comfortable and the rooms are nice too. After checkout they will not allow you back in the common room and there is not much room to store luggage. Staff food recommendations are really good. Make sure you go to the 100yen sushi train!!

위치는 나가사키에서 걸어서 간다면 15~20분 정도 걸리는 지역입니다. (지리를 완전하게 알 때) 숙소는 깔끔하고 좋았구요, 관리해주시는 분이 문의사항 같은 것 도 친절하게 메일로 다 알려주셔서 좋았습니다. 가장 좋았던 것은 가이드맵을 주시는데 추천 맛집들이 15개 정도 나와있는데 그 중 2군데를 갔는데 같이 간 일행도 완전 만족해서 나왔습니다. 숙소 바로 옆에있는 나가사키 짬뽕하고 아카리상이 추천하는 돈가스집 정말 맛있었습니다. 굳굳

The location was amazing with the Spectacles Bridge just outside of the hostel. It's also walking distances to many places. The staff were friendly and helped us book trips to Battleship Island (strongly recommended for everyone travelling to Nagasaki!). However, the atmosphere of the hostel was rather hotel-like.

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.

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.
