    Excellent location, literally opposite station. This place was great at making us feel at home. They have a free drink event at 6pm each night to any guests on site and then your second drink is half price. We were enjoying ourselves so much we stayed for a third round of beers and ordered delicious gyozas and fries from the hostel kitchen too. Showers were particularly strong with free organic soaps and small touches like custom made security boxes and curtains around bunks aided privacy.

    Excellent hostel, located in front of the JR Nara station. Rooms had a funky scent to them, but it was easy to overlook. Breakfast service was recently cancelled, though there was a free drink at 6 pm, along with discounts to the dinner menu at the bar of the hostel. In addition, there was luggage locks on the ground floor for luggage storage after check-out.

    The location is great and the free drink thing was a great way to meet people. The lower beds were really good, but the upper bed was super high and hard to climb up to.

    Good location. Facilities were nice. The social atmosphere was excellent. The location made coming in and out of town super easy! Unfortunately, the air conditioning in my room did not work, so I had a lot of trouble sleeping. Additionally, the bathrooms were a bit dirty, but overall

    Good value for what you spend. Easy to walk from the train station and easy to get to the park and temples. Our room's AC was leaky a bit and the bathroom was a little gross. I don't really remember interacting with the staff a lot, but overall a solid stay.

    Location right outside Nara Station is great. Bed is comfortable, but the pillow is thin and rock hard. There is no kitchen, just a refrigerator and microwave. Very mini cups of free coffee & tea. Rooftop is really nice to hang out on.
