    If there was a 10/5 rating for the staff I would choose it. We arrived early and the staff person Kana was so amazing, helpful and friendly. Whatever she is being paid is not nearly enough. Thanks for being so wonderful. The hostel is in an interesting location in the deer park. Close to many hikes, clean and comfortable. The photos do not do this place justice.

    Great location for the hostel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The hostel was clean and had a nice common room to chill in. Free tea/coffee was provided too. Would recommend to all travelers.

    Really great guest house in the park of Nara. I was a little nervous arriving late and was thinking there would be a long walk from the main road. In reality the taxi brought us right near to the hotel and the staff greatly provided for a late arrival. Both were nice after a long flight and three train rides. The walking and hiking in the park were really great but watch the deer with young children. The temples and shrines nearby were great to visit for New Years. Really fantastic place.

    If I have to rate the staff I will put 1000! They are great! They treat you as a friend and they help you in anything you need (I had a problem with my foot and the girl from the reception gifted to me something she uses to release the pain). I supposed to stay there 2 night but since there is so much to see (and to relax) I booked 2 more nights. The mountain, the shrines and the deers make the perfect combo ;)

    Brilliant stay... The location and setting are perfect, a welcome escape from the busy cityscape. The staff are friendly and engaging. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The communal areas and kitchen were clean. There's a wonderful coffee shop upstairs that serves the best bagels and matcha latte ever. Staying at the deer park in and visiting Nara park was definitely one of the highlights of my visit to Japan.

    This is a quirky little place - right in the heart of the park! The gentleman who runs it is wonderful - he was so helpful and kind. The beds are super comfy and the communal space is lovely too with everything you’d need in a kitchen. It’s a little far to the centre of Nara but there are buses out to the park.

    This is the best place I stayed in during my recent trip. Nice clean light, in the middle of the deer park/forest. Accomodating and friendly staff. Recommend it.

    Lovely location in the middle of the park, a bit of a walk to amenities but fine for a night. The staff were lovely and very willing to help with transport and finding food. The only slight downside was luggage storage - it isn't kept anywhere secure and when I came back to get it the reception and bags were completely unattended.

    It was around 27 degrees celsius when I spent the night and the ac was put on heating instead of cooling. It was really terrible and you weren't able to change it yourself but there wasn't anyone available at the desk either. The lockers in the room did not have a working key. We saw cockroaches at the bathrooms but the lady at the desk was really nice and the location is superb.

    I have mixed feelings about this place. Positives... -location is excellent - bang in the middle of the deer park - you're out of the way of all the tourists and there are deer outside your window. Only a 20 minute walk into town or the bus is easy to get. The negatives... it was bloody freezing. It was colder inside than outside. There were building works that started at 9am. The hostel is weirdly laid out - you felt like you were brushing your teeth in the reception. Has real potential.
