Very nice hostel, sharing a room-kitchen-living room-bathroom + a terrace ( which is very nice to have a drink by night ) with 8 persons. Staff specially Jose is very helpful with plenty of advices and nice places to visit or to go to eat and also the... More

This place is really small (just one room with 8 beds or so), but it has everything you need and the staff is pretty relaxed. I should note that the place looks different now than in the pictures here, the beds are more like closed "capsule" beds with a curtain now.

Stayed in this hostel for 2 nights in Sept and it was a brilliant stay. We arrived extremely late and were worried that no one would be there to check us in but after emailing them to let them know they stayed up to see us in. The dorm is spacious with curtains and lights. The staff are extremely helpful... More

I went to Nara for 3 days and I stayed here for 2 nights. This hostel was really close to station. Only 1 minute by walking. This hostel provided full kitchen utensils so you can make your own breakfast and lunch. Clean and cozy. Ah ya, it has washing machine too for free

Super Convenient! Situated right next to the train station, and local eateries nearby. Owner was kind and made sure we were good to go. ***the train is loud until 12:30 am. If you don't mind this ,then it's quite a steal for the price! I would stay here again,definitely.

We actually planned to stay here for 2 night but then randomly decided that we stay here for 3 nights because nara and the hostel are really amazing. The owners are really flexible so it wasn't a big deal. There's free bread for breakfast and coffee + tea. The kitchen is rather small but that doesn't really matter because you... More

Convenient location: It's 15 minutes from the main train stations and one of the main temples. The hostel is more like a big room of beds next to a smaller room that is living room and kitchen. It's super small. The owner and staff are very nice and helpful. Could be cleaner. But was an ok stay.

This hostel is very small and tucked away at the top of an inconspicuous building. However, once you get there the owner is really friendly and helpful (and speaks very good English), the hostel itself is extremely clean, the bunks are sturdy and clean, and you get fresh sheets to put on the beds yourself so you know they have...

Stayed here in high season in November and the owner Kosuke was one of the nicest people I met in Japan. Every Friday he has made an appointment with some of the young locals to show his guests around in Nara. And all for free. This is a great way to see the city and to meet some locals. I... More
