    Such a beautiful hostel, very peaceful and calm environment. Has a nice roof top patio. Lots of natural lighting. Very clean. The staff provide maps and lots of information on the area including things to do that are free or cost money. Has a great little kitchen and dining area. Walking distance to Nara park and shrines, and JR station. Definitely worth the stay.

    Nice place to stay in Nara. A bit out of the city center, but had many tasty restaurants around to goose from. The owner was really friendly and helpful. So many recommendations about what to do! Sake tastings, shrines, transportation, restaurants, and anything else you might want to do, he knew it. Would happily stay again.

    Really cute japanese style hostel quite close to the city. The staff is really kind, professional and helpful, they gave us advice where to go around, which we appreciated. I would definitely come back. The only thing I would improve is wash the shower curtain as it had fungus, apart of it everything was sparkling clean :)

    Great place for just a few nights stay. The staff member who was there was a lovely man who was very friendly and helpful and circled all the important places in Nara to see on a map and bought us free bread for breakfast. The dorm was awesome as it was big and had all the facilities in the one area. However the showers/toilet were communal but there was no lock between the bedroom and those facilities so we had to be conscious of our valuables. Aside from that was a lovely hostel :-)

    Lucky Us for staying here one night in a dorm/guesthouse without any guest except us... We own the floor by ourselves... Pretty comfy, kitchen are great and well prepared, toilet have one of the best to use, TV, audio accessible, the bed are traditionally cool and feels like the Japan's ambience... Microwave, fridge, table, living area... Everything is great.. The location is near to Shin Omiya station just walk by...7 Eleven just a minute to walk.. 20 minutes to the Nara's Attraction Park 👍

    A bit out of the way but actually a nice hostel. It was a shame that there were no other guests staying there when I was, but that left me plenty of space to spread out :)

    Staff was not preset at all except for check in. For women, I would not consider this hostel because the shower situation is terrible. Do not expect a “Hostel” when you come here. It’s a bed in a room, would not suggest more than one night. However we met the owner once and he was friendly and went out of his way to speak English. Unfortunately his extreme friendliness might not be worth the over night stay.
