Guesthouse Nara Komachi was one of our favorite places we stayed while on our trip to Japan. The facilities in the room were excellent and clean and we were surprised by overall how nice the place was. The owner was also very friendly and spoke English. He informed us of Oktoberfest More

Very nice and clean place, the owner is very kind and makes a big effort to make you feel at home. The location is also excellent, very close to the park. The common area is small, but enough to ensure a good atmosphere. As far as I remember there were no lockers, but still I felt safe to More

This is the nicest place I stayed in Japan. It is a super relaxing place without being too boring. The common room is nice to hangout and the kitchen is well equipped. My highlight was the super helpful lady that works there. She was a great help and pointed me all the good spots in Nara. More

A little far from the JR station, but this means you are near to the park and Great Buddha. Really atmospheric old teahouse for a traditional Japanese stay. More

Yuzan was a cozy little guesthouse, and I am glad I stumbled upon it! The staff were very helpful, and the place had everything a backpacker would need- wifi, common area, laundry, and even breakfast (for a fee). It has been one of my favourite hostels in Japan, thus far. The downside More

Owner very particular about 3 pm check in. I arrived in the morning and wanted to drop my bags and check my email. The owner took my bags right at the entrance and put them into storage. Wouldn't even let me come into common area. Also couldn't use the wifi at entrance. Would not give More

Everything was great. My friends never get in hostels before and they felt insecured when I made the booking for them, but after we stayed, they seemed to feel so much relaxed and enjoyed. It's really easy to get to the hostel from Kyobate station. The place was so much clean. The staffs More

The best hostel I've ever stayed in. It's the old house in japanese style, it's really clean and hosts are the nicest people I met in Japan. I'd certainly recommend it. More

Very nice owner, but a bit small and there was no airco, so the window was open en it is next to the railwaystation so do the math... Not much sleep. But with earplugs it was fine More

Really nice host for a small but quality hostel. He will make you feel right at home in this hostel with a japanese house feel to it. It's nor right next to all the best things to see in Nara but they are within easy walking distance. The hostel itself more then compensates for this. More

Very nice place, it was just like being in someone's home. The bed (and the room in general) was comfortable and the owner was very kind and helpful. He greeted me with a nice cold glass of tea when I arrived--- perfect for the hot day! The Guest House is a short walk from Nara Park and More
