Can be a little bit cold in winter, but there is enough heating to be sufficient. Totally recommend. The staff and atmosphere were top notch. More

This Guesthouse is definitely one of the most charming ones I've ever been to. It's close to the Kintetsu Nara station and reflects the Japanese lifestyle for backpackers. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly and instead of staying just 1 night as I had planned I stayed 5 nights More

Loved staying here, it feels quite traditional with the sliding rice paper doors and tatami matts. it's super close to the station and an easy walk to Nara park More

Nice Japanese house with a cozy common area. Good choice of music (thanks for introducing Miyauchi Yuri). Everything's clean and well-considerate for guests. Excellent location for travellers (let's be Nara warriors!)! More

A charming guesthouse, perfectly located in the town of Nara. Junko really welcomes you into her home and makes you feel comfortable (she also makes an amazing breakfast!). Ideally placed for going to all the UNESCO World heritage sites and of course the deer park. I would definitely stay More

The hostel seems pretty far away from the town, but it's worth to stay inside the deer park where you can enjoy the beautiful landscapes for a whole day! Those little bambi just outside the window and the famous temples are very close to the hostel. I stayed here for one night and the More

A nice little place that was pretty obviously for short stays (a lot of people dropped off luggage in the morning, like we did). Nothing exceptional, but I'd recommend them as a pleasant place to stay in Nara. More

It was very busy when we stayed here and so we were put in an overflow area which was a poorly converted office. It was grungy and uncomfortable. The hostel is next to a main train station and the constant running of trains made it very difficult to sleep. I think we would have had a More

The location is very closed to the JR station. But it not easy to find...but the station staff know the place, and would tell you where the place. And the guesthouse staff is very nice and helpful, their map is too cute, And we get one map to the park, the deer eat half of the map More
