Extremely nice owners. It helps to know Japanese of course, but even without Japanese you can ask them anything and they will gladly help you. Without their kindness, my stay in Nagasaki would have been far less interesting.
Nice and cosy guesthouse. The owners are exceptionnaly sympathetic and friendly! We spent two wonderful evenings together.
Nice chilled hostel, don't come here if you want to party though. There is breakfast in the morning and the location while a little further out of town than others is only ten minutes on the tram from the main station.
The owner and his wife are the most kind people you can imagine. The location is very close to a tram station in a more quite neighborhood, so you get some good night sleep there. The kitchen is not fully equipped. I can highly recommend to stay at Kagamiya in Nagasaki. A very good place in a very interesting city.
Very clean, the location was easy to get to from the tram, but definitely buy a day pass for the tram, otherwise you`ll waste money if you don`t get one. The main thing I liked about this hostel was the staff - the friendliest I`ve met. They advised me on things to do, gave me a discount card and were just generally really nice people.
This is a great place to experience what a Japanese house is. The hole place is really clean and tidy, great atmosphere and nice common areas, it is perfectly reachable using the tram, free breakfast provided and its location is not bad at all at the tram can take you to all the touristic spots in Nagasaki in a short time. But the best was, undoubtedly, the staff. They are extremely nice and ready to help you at any moment. Whenever I go back to Nagasaki, I'll stay there again for sure.
The location is actually quite far away from the city, that being said it is quite nice getting out of the centre of Nagasaki. Would recommend for people how prefer the quiet and peaceful.
Lovely Japanese house, small but everything you need. Breakfast included. Some reviews said it was a little far out of town but it's on a direct tram line to all the main attractions.
A very friendly couple is running this hostel. She gave me great advice on local restaurants.
The owner used to be a traveller herself, and opened the hostel as a way of giving back to travellers. She speaks very good English, and even offers a laundry service for 500 Yen. The hostel felt very welcoming, with free breakfast (toast and eggs) and tea. I found the lounge to be very comfortable, and I spent one evening chatting with people from Korea, UK, and China. The hostel is located in West Nagasaki, so it can be bothersome to get to from Nagasaki's main transit stations.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. My friend loved looking at the antique kimono. Thanks for a great stay!
The owners informed us on a festival, they attended too, fully dressed. The guests were nice too :)

Although very close to a tram stop hostel is quite far from the city centre which is a disadvantage. However it means the hostel is very quiet at night and you get a nice big room. Staff are very friendly and helpful, everything very clean and nicely furnished. Nice complimentary breakfast a bonus. We booked a mixed dorm but as there were only two of us they swapped us into a double at no extra cost which was very nice. Highly recommended.
Staff was very helpful with my Hashima Isalnd excursion and let me check in outside of the reception operating hours.
The directions are very easy to follow from the station. The hostel staff are very friendly and speak fluent English, and the owners are very willing to give directions and recommend things to do in and around Nagasaki. Another plus is the fact that the beds are quite comfortable, which made a nice change from the thin, hard, mattresses that several hostels seem to use, in Japan.
This was my favorite Guesthouse in Japan. The family is very nice and tries to help with everything. On their day off, they even took me to the beach. Such a good time ! I highly recommend this Guesthouse.
It was one of the best hostels I've ever been in. The staff is so friendly and the rooms (both 'private' and common) are really clean and beautiful. If I'd had to write something bad about this hostel, it would be it's location. It's a little bit far from the citiy centre and you have to walk about 10 minutes from the nearest station. BUT you can get almost everywhere from the nearest station,
