My friend and I had a great stay at Yuzan Guesthouse! The guest house had a really traditional feel while still being very comfortable. The common room was a cozy place to hang out and meet other travelers, and they offered delicious breakfast for only 400 yen as well as drinks and tea for purchase. The staff was incredibly friendly... More

It is really near to the station. It was good, and the owner was friendly, speaking perfect English. I had breakfast for 400¥, including salad, egg and toast with butter and jam and coffee or tea. One thing to improveis the shower room I used (they have 2).

Three friends and I stayed in the female dorms for one night. The beds were comfortable and they provided several electrical outlets per bunker, which is very convenient for charging the (usually) numerous gadgets that travelers bring. The only trouble is that the stairs are REALLY steep, and while the staff will help carry your luggage to and from your... More

Yuzan Guesthouse was wonderful. It was just around the corner from the JR train station. The guesthouse was nice, clean and what you would expect of a Japanese guesthouse. The staff was friendly and spoke English. The breakfast was delicious and only 400 yen. Guests can leave luggage at the guesthouse after checkout if they are going to do some... More

Our last few days in Japan were spent in Yuzan Guesthouse in Nara. This is a small guesthouse, located nearby the Nara train station. It's a very quiet, cozy place. I thought it was a very cute place overall. We booked the private room and slept on tatami mats on the ground. It was very comfortable, except the walls are... More

A nice and cosy hostel in an old traditional house, great for a cheap stay in Nara. Owner is very friendly and speak good English. Ideally located close to the station. Careful with you head though as some doors are really low.

The place is really lovely. The cosy design makes you feel zen. I particularly appreciated the vast living room where you can relax, listen to music and meet other travelers. The staff is helpful and friendly.

Yuzhan Hostel Nara The location of this cheap hostel was fantastic, it was only 3 minutes walk from the JR tran station. We booked a 8-beds room where obviously there were 8 bunker beds in the room. The room has air condition units, some lockers and a toilet next to the room. The stone sink was pretty unique but it... More
