Absolutely great guesthouse! Would definitely recommend staying here (and taking the delicious breakfast for only 300 yen)!
Felt like staying in a home, peaceful location, friendly and kind staff, delicious breakfast, free snacks/water/tea/towels/extra blankets/all sorts of other amenities! Wonderful place to stay in Nara :)
Very nice family-style hostel in a quiet neighborhood of Nara. I had a room to myself since there weren't many people, but I think with 4-6 people in a dorm it may get a little tight. It's very clean, and there's always water, hot/cold tea, and coffee available. The breakfast (300 yen) is very worth it, very delicious. It's not extremely close to anything, but Nara is pretty small town. The park with the deer is a 10 minute walk away. Overall, very pleased with this hostel!
Loved this place! Comfortable bed! Good shower and the lady is lovely! Nice extra touches and the breakfast is a must- traditional japanese food for 300 yen.
Absolutely wonderful place. Kind, friendly hosts and a nice house with a warm atmosphere. Also very conveniently located next to major tourist attractions! This has been my favorite hostel of my Japan trip.

Very warm hospitality from the owner. Just a walking distance from several tourist attractions in Nara.
Perfect hostel. Small house where the owner stay and helps you. Really nice person. If you want to stay like in a japanese home, this is your hostel. I really recommend it.
Nice japanese home, nice food, nice extras like tea and fruit.
Very friendly, helpful Oya-San. A great place to stay off Sanjo...!
Guesthouse Tamura is really homely, clean and comfortable, and very close to Nara Park. The owner also gave me some good tips on where to go in Nara. The Japanese breakfast was tasty too. Excellent value and I'd recommend it as a great base to explore Nara. Being so close to the park does mean it's about a 20 minute walk from the station (if you go slow, with big luggage!). But that's a minor point and the proximity to the park and the comfort level more than makes up for it.
Great guesthouse. The rooms were really nice and would definitely go back.
fantastic place though it is a little small for three with two large luggage. host is very hospitality and helpful. host can communication in English fluently.
Real nice hosts. And take the breakfast. Thank you.
Really nice, clean little hostel. The owners were super friendly and I highly recommend you try their Japanese breakfast! Bed was great, facilities were good also. Hostel is at least a 20 minute walk from the JR station but if you don´t mind then you´re def good to go to this one! They are close to Nara Park though, so I guess for the sites, their location is good!! Would recommend staying here!
great place to stay with lovely staff. bonus tooth brush, clean towels and friendly setting suggestions. highly recommend
Perfect. Don't stay anywhere else in Nara and definitely get the breakfast. 10/10
Tamura is in a great location for walking to many of the sights/sites in Nara. Junko's breakfast (a small fee) was delicious and the house spotless. She went out of her way to answer questions and provide information. Two reasons I didn't give top marks. First, there was no way to lock the rooms when you were not in them. I always felt comfortable and safe, but... Second, the non-dorm rooms have futons, not beds, which we were unaware of. Very uncomfortable for those with any physical ailments.
