Hostel Akari

Top choice hostel in Nagasaki

This commendably friendly 28-bed hostel sets the standard, with bright, clean Japanese-style rooms with Western-style bedding and bathrooms, uberhelpful staff, an open kitchen, and a dedicated crew of local volunteers who lead free walking tours around the city. It's by the lovely Nakashima-gawa. Towel rental is ¥100. Check-in or even bag dropping can be tough between 1pm and 3pm.
