I went to Nara for one night to catch the Omizutori ceremony and stayed here. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and the location was perfect! They also rent bicycles and there are a few public baths nearby for which they provide discounted tickets.
The house is also charming. It used to belong to a tea ceremony instructor apparently and one of the private rooms is actually the old tea room. When I first walked in I was beckoned towards the warm kotatsu to check in.
I stayed in the mixed dorm and it very clean and quiet. The other guest were also lovely.
Perfect if you are on a budget and still want to stay somewhere charming and well located!
If I go back to Nara I will definitely try to stay there again!
