    This place was very clean and the staff was very nice. They gave us free tea and gave us a detailed map of the surrounding area. It was very close to many places we waned to see! They have a fridge and a toaster too! They rented us bikes to rides around the city!

    My husband I really loved the experience we had. If there is one thing to mention, it would have been the squeaky floor due to the historic building's age. However, value and customer service makes up for it. I suggest to rent a cycle which was cheaper than renting outside. The staff can suggest you where you can go for a scenic route. Definitely worth the visit. If you are looking for a Affordable Japanese hostel in Nara, this is the one to use.

    Cool and unique experience. Nice location in Nara, fairly accessible. Plenty of convenience stores nearby. Walls were a little thin, but got the job done for a reasonable price. Friendly staff as well.
