Hostel owner very nice chap & very helpful even with language barrier, small hostel Ryokan styled which is a great experience, beds super comfortable & facilities very clean & new..... perfect location & quiet... thanks!
Very convenient, nice place to stay if you decide to spend the night in Nara. The dorm room is cozy, the kitchen well equipped, the owner nice and helpful. The place is very clean. All in all, makes for a comfortable stay!
It was in a great location, and easy to find. The hostel had a great atmosphere and was quite charming inside. It was an enjoyable place to stay!
Owner is very nice guy, very polite and helpfull, hostel is clean, but some parts of kitchen are messy and i thing it is because this place just need a woman touch - somebody who's ability to do home-like atmosphere comes naturally:) (and see mess, where man don't see).
Firstly - all travellers going to Japan should make time to visit Nara. It is absolutely beautiful. Secondly - Takama Guesthouse is very nice to stay in, close to Kintetsu Nara station and a fairly short walk from JR Nara. I was only there for a night but it was incredibly pleasant and the free green tea was a nice touch! Possibly the comfiest bed I slept in, in the whole of Japan!
I really enjoyed my stay here and it is very convenient if you want to go to the Deer Park. It is also very close to the bus station. Great location!
We were worried not to find a hostel with late check-in since we would arrive at Kansai International Airport quite late. However, we arrived for check-in just at 23pm so no problems with that. the hostel is really good located close to the things you most probably want to see. The staff was really good and helpful. I would definitely book this place again!
The hostel is located just a few minutes walking from the station. The person who takes care (or the owner, I don't know) is very gentle and will always make sure you feel comfortable there. I really liked there and ended up staying for 4 days. I just missed a dry machine, as my clothes couldn't dry because of the rain. Overall, it is quite a good value for money in Nara. Ask to the owner about the trails outside the city and enjoy your stay.

Hibi is a very nice Host. I stayed for one night. The location is perfect to walk around in the centre of Nara. Everything's near. The owner makes your stay very comfortable. Beds are good and the hole house has a very familiar atmosphere. Want go back there if I visit Nara.
