    This place felt so comforting and safe. Booked a dorm and ended up with my own room, potentially because it wasn’t so busy, and I’m not complaining. The staff are honestly amazing, greeted with a tea and good English skills, got a great map and aided with my bags.

    Haruya was magical! Typical Japanese house with a beautiful entrance and garden. We got a tea just when we arrived and staff were so helpful and kind. Highly recommended

    To be completely honest, I didn't experience the normal guest rooms. They had an opening so I was upgraded to a very beautiful single Japanese room for free. Honestly this is a lovely place to stay, the staff were very friendly. Obviously it is a bit old so you cant go expecting modern facilities, but there was a great heater, wifi that worked well etc. Only problem is it's quite far away from the station and I struggled a little with finding a good place to eat near it.

    We loved this hostel, the gentlemen on front desk was very helpful when we arrived! The family shower room is great very spacious! They provide a rice pudding for breakfast which was good and have a good coffee and tea station! The walls were very thin as expected so we did feel that we couldn’t talk loudly in our room which was a bit limiting but it was still workable!

    Located in a very nice quiet neighbourhood, yet still close to nearby restaurants and attractions. The building is beautiful and the room was a treat! I enjoyed the traditional breakfast, tea, garden and bike rentals. I hope to come back with my friends.

    Lovely little place in Nara not too far from the parks and main city centre. The house is beautifully preserved and has some wonderful old world Japanese charm. The walls are very thin and you can definitely here everything around the hostel. Apart from that a lovely stay!
