We had a good stay at this hostel, nothing to complain about! It's a 15min walk from the station and the desk is extremely helpful! There is good wifi, a kitchen and useful maps at the hostel! While it's a little bit of a walk out of the main area, it's only 10mins and it's a nice walk! If you... More

I spent a couple of nights here with my 3 teenagers. We shared a 4-bed dorm room which was small, but perfectly comfortable. Quarters might be a little close for people less well-acquainted with each other, but we were perfectly happy. The staff were very helpful, pointing us towards reasonably-priced parking and good restaurants nearby, checking on opening hours of... More

The place was quite easy to find as it's near the famous Megane (spectacles) bridge, with a big red sign outside. We arrived very late and the worker ha to wait for us. He seemed a little unhappy about it. Although understandable, it was unlike the usual Japanese hospitality I experienced elsewhere. Rooms were clean, but walls were quite thin... More

It's a good hostel with all the necessary requirements, including a great kitchen and social area, yet it's the staff and wonderfully location, that make this such a great place to stay. The staff work really hard to make it a warm and friendly place, organising a big feast the night I arrived, and provide so much useful information and... More

My husband and I spent three nights in a bunk bed room with shared bath facilities in mid-November. You really cannot beat the price and friendly people here at Akari. Very clean as well. Our only problem was that our taxi driver had a hard time trying to figure out the address we provided... eventually, we mentioned the Megane Bridge... More

Great little hostel, very easy to find and within easy walking distance of most of the major sights in Nagasaki. Rooms and facilities were clean and comfortable. A great little kitchen, lounge, and dining area is provided too. The best thing about this hostel though is the staff and the information provided. The walls are literally plastered with information and... More

The hostel is situated in a perfect area. It's not too far from the JR station and it's a 10 minutes walk to the city center, which is a must to visit, I loved it. The dorms are spacious, tatami style floor but bunk beds (without the usual courtains for privacy, but that didn't bother me). Cleanliness is ok, facilities... More

Akari is like a youth hostel. Warm welcome to visitors. It consists in an elderly house, and traditional rooms. (must bring your bath towel) Staff is very helpfull, and gives you many useful indications about the city. It is located into a very cute street, facing the stream and the sixteen arched stone bridge of the acient city. Magic view... More

I stayed here in spring. The staff had great advice about walks in the area. The famous Ryoma Street which winds up a beautiful hill is basically right in their backyard. Megane Bridge and Dejima aren't far either. Nagasaki is one of the most beautiful towns to stroll around in throughout all of Japan and this hostel is perfectly located.... More

位置很好,從公會堂前那一站走過去大約3分鐘,走到景點眼鏡橋不用五分鐘。旅行前寫信去有問必答非常客氣,可以寄放行李,入住時的解說也十分詳細。我們住雙人房,床單雖然需要自己鋪,不過很乾淨。很多各國旅行者,櫃台的英文也很好。總之對自助旅行者來說是很棒的據點。AKARI is located at the beautiful riverside,3 minutes walking distance from "Kokaido mae"station.
