Stayed in a private room with private toilet and bathroom (approx 1.5x2m). Uncomfortable mattress and place is pretty old. Towel for rent YEN100 and shower amenities can be bought at reception. Free wifi only in living room and free use of computers. Friendly staff but once checked out, you are not allowed to enter the building at all, not even... More

My girlfriend & I really enjoyed our stay here. Upon arrival the owner of the hostel welcomed us, showed us all of the facilities, recommended where to go and how to get there, and gave us a discount card for the city's main attractions (50% off most of what the city has to offer for tourists). The hostel itself is... More

we stayed a couple of nights at Akari, the couple who own it are incredibly nice, and very helpful. The hostel is covered with information on things to do and they are very happy to help. The double room was huge for japanese standards and clean. It was a great place to stay.

Room: Mixed dormitory with a shared bathroom and shower. I found the location to be very convenient. The main train station can also be reached in about 15 minutes on foot, and there is a tram stop very close by. I was staying at Akari during the Lantern Festival, and the festival events and attractions could be easily reached on... More

We stayed here for 5 nights towards the end of a four week trip to Japan, and I have to say it's quite possibly the friendliest experience I've had in a hostel anywhere in the world. From the moment we checked in all of the staff were genuinely welcoming and hospitable, we soon found out it's a family run business... More

Good place to spend a night. A bit far from the train station, but there's an easy access by tram. Booked a single room, which turned out to be quite spacious with comfy bed and private bathroom. Basically, it's everything I was looking for in a budget hostel. Room itself was a bit worn out, but clean and tidy, so... More

This hostel has everything that a budget-conscious traveler is looking for. It is conveniently located a 2 min walk from tram stops which take you to Nagasaki Station, Peace Park and Glover Garden. The staff were outstanding, I was provided with free maps and detailed information including a discount card for major attractions on arrival as well as having my... More

What a great location! This hostel was close to a lot of great temples and shines and the trolley lines nearby went everywhere you wanted to go. The hostel was extremely clean and the staff were not only friendly but spoke a high level of English. Having a staff that all could communicate without a problem in English is a... More

Nagasaki was by far my favorite place in Japan and Akari was a great base. My only regret is I didn't stay longer but alas, I had already made plans to travel back east toward Tokyo. It was very easy to find from the station. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made a booking on my behalf for... More
