    This hostel was nice and clean. The bathroom was well-maintained and the beds were comfortable. There was also a nice rooftop to go out on. The location was extremely convenient as well since it is right across from JR Nara station.

    Amazing location, though getting up to the bunk bed could be challenging if you are a tall person. Over all a great experience, would recommend.

    Great hostel right opposite the train station. The staff are lovely and the free drink event is great for meeting people. I was chatting to some Japanese students which was excellent cultural exchange. The common space is the bar, which is pleasant. It's near to the deer park and restaurants. Bathrooms are good. Only downside is access to the top bunks (if you have one). It's *very* high up, and the ladder is a bit precarious. I think it could be safer. If you're not nimble, it would be tricky.

    No complaints! I was very poorly my one night here so I don’t have a huge amount to say! Big comfy beds, nice showers, free towels are always a treat, felt very private with the curtain drawn. Calm atmosphere. Perfect for my purposes of just resting as much as I could!

    Clean, comfy mattress, mini kitchen, nice bathrooms and free drink at 6pm to meet people. Pillow was so hard it gave me headaches... . Can confirm the top bunks aren't much fun. Dorm barely had any floorspace to put big bag. Wish booking confirmation was more detailed as you can enter hostel and leave bag padlocked for free until reception opens at 4pm--I had paid to leave mine at the tourist info centre.

    Nice place to stay, very convenient location and friendly staff atmosphere. The top bunk capsules looked a bit scary because they were so high up with no railing, just a curtain. I got a bottom bunk though myself.

    Good option for a short stay, very close to the nara deer park and steps away from the JR station. Food was good and the daily cheers was great! However we could only store our bags on the first floor and were sleeping on the 3rd floor. Don't get an upper bunk if you're scared of heights. Great bathrooms and toiletries. The walls are quite thin so bring earplugs! Also, interesting bean bag pillows and great duvet!

    Had a nice stay at this hostel. My only complaint is that I left something important behind and am unable to contact the staff after about four days now to organise how to get it back despite both emailing and Facebook messaging them. Other than that it was a good stay.
