    I described this place to a fellow traveler as a boutique hostel. There are so many great things about this place. I felt cared for and nourished. I would recommend 100% to anyone seeking to stay a night or three in Nara. You won't be disappointed. Also, buy breakfast, it's the best deal in town.

    What a pleasant stay I had here. The owner is as sweet as pie , and my stay was very nice . I love the fact there is complimentary amenities as well as miso soup , tea, and cookies . I was the only one in my room which made for a very relaxing stay . About a 20 min walk from the train station or an 8 min bus ride on the local bus - and from the bus top a few mins walk . I would love to stay here again.

    My friend and I loved our stay here! It was a great guesthouse, very comfortable, with free tea, coffee and little snacks. The breakfast was also homegrown and delicious.

    The hostess goes above and beyond to make you feel at home and comfortable. Others have mentioned best breakfast in town, but they also have a Japanese-style bath as well as a shower that everyone should try.

    This place was a good Nara stop. It was adjacent to the park which made going to the shrines and on hikes very simple. The place was super clean if not a little tight. My bed was less than desirable, it had a bow in it from wear. Our hosts were pleasant and helpful, but their English wasn’t great, so there was a lot of gesturing (not a problem). Shower had great water pressure and there was a Japanese bath option. Overall I’d stay here again.
