    Great hostel at a very affordable price. Centrally located just a few minutes walk from Nara Park. Exceptional facilities for such a bargain price. An ideal place for any stop in Nara!

    Oak Hostel Nara makes a trip to Nara all the better. 2 years ago, I was on my own and stayed in the dorm—pleasant and comfortable. On this trip, my neighbor and I could took a hotel room there, and it was excellent and a very reasonable price. Hotel and dorm share the same large, bright pleasant lobby, where you can buy wonderful pastries in the morning to have with the excellent coffee available all day, as well as tea and decaf, or you can bring in your own meal—dishes and cutlery are provided

    Very clean, cute, and quiet little hostel in a great location close to Kintetsu-Nara station and about 7 mins walk to the park itself. Many shops/restaurants nearby. No kitchen but has a computer with fast WiFi if you need to book flights etc. Staff are friendly and so are the other guests! Common room is in the lobby but they provide free blankets and pillows. There was never a line for the bathroom either and the dorms have AC.

    Staff were very welcoming and polite. Very clean everywhere. 15-20 minute walk from Nara station. The pastries they offer for breakfast were quite cheap and very convenient. I should have stayed longer!

    An excellent location in Nara, very central and a great launch point for exploration. We found the rooms to be excellent and good value for money. Recommended!

    We loved the privacy that the capsule-style bunks gave us, and the rooms were really clean and comfortable. Felt kind of like home! The staff were always friendly and helpful, and the common space is also a café/bar where you can try some great local craft beers. The atmosphere was a bit quiet though, even for me as an introvert. Had an issue with loud talkers in the laundry room - wished they’d keep it in the lounge, the back door in the dorm is NOT soundproof and we could hear every word

    Location is great, right by the subway and 5 min walk to Nara park. Staff were friendly and helpful. The common area in the front is also the lobby but there’s a microwave as well as cutlery/dishes you can use!

    Good spot to explore Nara. Did not see much social interaction going on, but that can always be hit or miss
