    Great place to stay within walking distance to everything you need. Close to buses and train station. Quiet and upscale neighborhood but close to the shopping street for lots of good restaurant options and souvenirs. Museums are close and hiking on paths close to the city are also an option if you need a respite from the crowds. Great fancy breads for breakfast for only 100 yen. What a bargain 😊

    Excellent ensuit private room! No kitchen at the hostel, but free fresh brewed coffee and pastries (for sale). Also the location and proximity to dinning options is very convenient. For travels using the JR Rail Pass, that station (Nara) is about a 15 minute walk away. However, if you take the Kintetsu line, say from Kyoto or Osaka, the Kintetsu-Nara station is 1 minute away. Staff was super friendly, I really enjoyed my stay!

    Great location, close to the station, Nara park and heaps of good restaurants. The staff were very helpful and their English was excellent. Loved having “rugby night” where they put the Rugby World Cup on TV in the common area for everyone to watch with ¥300 Asahi! No breakfast included was the only negative.

    Oak Hostel Nara is perfectly convenient for exploring Nara Park, only a few minutes walk away. I arrived from the Kintetsu Nara train station which is in extremely close proximity as well. While atmosphere was quite quiet, the facilities & rooms were all perfectly clean and comfortable.

    I had a nice time here. The road it’s located on is quiet and always seemed to play gentle jazz music from the streetlight/speakers, which was really calming and nice. It’s also just a short walk to Nara park and across the road from the night market!
