This is a fantastic budget place in Nagasaki!
The hostel is beautifully located by the river and the old stone bridges, and close to several tram lines that take you to all the interesting sites in the city. Several temples can be found nearby and down town is just 10 min away by foot.
Our room (Double room, ensuite) was small, but had the largest bathtub and shower room in our 47 days trip to Japan (11 hotels/hostels).
There was no fridge in the room, but you could keep your food in the fridge downstairs in the kitchen if you write your name and check out date on it.
With our Vista laptop we had some problems connecting to the Wi-Fi due to heavy encryption, but with a little help from the staff it worked out fine. And when it was up and running, it was one of the best Wi-Fi connections we had on the whole trip.
The best part was the staff. They had so many tips for places to go to and how to get there, and they could help you with anything. We had some problems and they helped us by making several phone calls even after receptions hours!
*Awfully hard bed, like a rock!
