Good location with reasonable price! Will definitely stay on my next visit to Nara!


Really beautiful traditionally Japanese building in a convenient location. Friendly atmosphere and helpful staff.


Comfortable place to stay. Superfriendly staff.


This hostel is perfect!


A lovely, atmospheric old Japanese-style house with a view of the garden from the common room. The hostel is located on a side street away from the hassle of the main sightseeing areas so it's very peaceful and quiet, yet just minutes away from Isuien and Yoshikien gardens and the historical monuments of Nara park. If you fancy soaking in an onsen, they can also sell you a ticket at a discount to the nearby local neighborhood sento.


One of my best hostel experiences. Staff was extraordinary friendly and helpful! If the owner is reading this, please give him a pat on the back lol
