    This was a great place to stay and the staff went above and beyond what was expected. The cheers event was a great way to meet people and the location of the hostel was perfect for traveling around the area. Everything was clean and and well maintained and the staff was very friendly and will do what they can to accommodate you. The only complaint I had was the common room seats were very hard so if you did have a little downtime there wasn't a comfortable place to just hang out.

    This is the best place to stay in Nara! Superb value, comfy beds, and the cheers event (free first drink at 6pm) each night allowed an easy way to meet fellow travellers. There’s even a dancing robot! Would have been a 10/10 if you could check in before 4pm on the day of arrival, but I assume it keeps costs down not having a 24hr reception.

    Great location right opposite the JR Nara station and a 20min walk from Nara park. Beds are comfortable. Make sure you go for your free drink at 6 as it’s not valid after 6!

    Hostel was in a great location in Nara, beds were pretty comfortable (they had Japanese rice pillows). Shower/bathrooms were good as well. The free drink at the bar downstairs was a nice touch and we were able to eat/drink our own food in the bar as well.

    Everything about this place was pretty good! Check in isn’t until 6pm (which is unusually late) but you get a free drink after checking in! If I come back to Nara again I’ll definitely be staying here!

    Perfect location (right across from Nara Station), and great value for money. Bunks are enclosed so it feels more private than an open bunk bed setup would, despite sharing with 17 other people. Staff are friendly and welcome drink is a good way to meet other travellers.

    Stayed for 3 nights, really good location, about a 2 minute walk from Nara station. Hostel has a bar, good atmosphere and helpful staff. It's also really easy to navigate around and there's leaflets and tips on things to see around Nara. You definitely stay here if you're visiting
