Experience the life of a Japanese while staying at Yuzan. Friendly owner and good location. (5 mins walk from Nara Station). Besides Nara Station, it is a close walk to the other spots in Nara to visit. Nearby restaurants nearby too.

The Yuzan Guest House in Nara is a hostel that can score with its traffic-convenient location. There are only a few minutes walk from Central Station in Nara to the hostel. The rooms at the hostel are neat, beds Japanese standards corresponding to a bit hard, but you get used to it. Showers and toilets are clean and well maintained.... More

Friendly owner, good location, comfortable lounge, kitchen access and refreshments make this guesthouse a pleasure to stay at. Basic, but comfortable. We returned for a second visit and felt lucky to find an opening.

Short walk to Nara Park and Higashimuki Shopping Street, spacious guesthouse with bicycle rental too. Clean beds, slept well the 2 nights there. Has free tea and coffee and also a nice cozy common area with loads of guidebooks and magazines. Really traditional feel, it's like returning home every evening.

From the start and throughout my experience here was superb, especially after a stay at a much less than ideal guest house in Himeji had lowered my expectations . The Yuzan owner is always available to his guests with advice and encouragement throughout all waking hours. Bunk beds are comfortable and well-arranged. Shower facilities are a bit cramped but clean.... More

A fantastic cozy Japanese style guest house located just 3 minutes from the train station and about 15 minutes walk from the Nara Park. The well English speaking owner is very helpful and accommodating and helps you feel like home. The rooms, bathrooms, common room and kitchen clean. Free tea and coffee in the common room for free. I only... More

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
