shimadayuji We highly recommend this newly opened guesthouse. It's in a traditional 100 year old home with a beautiful garden in the centre. It has all of the facilities you'll need such as internet, shared kitchen area, decent showers, spacious rooms with comfy futon and a lovely sunken floor common area to meet with other friendly travellers or just relax. For the quality of the guesthouse the price cannot be beaten The location is great, tucked away from the main road it is walking distance to the station/dining hub & the world heritage listed sights. The owner is friendly and speaks both Japanese & English, he told us it was his dream to open a guesthouse & he is off to a great start! We are already planning to head to the Nara area to see more of the sights & will be staying here again
loveedward007 I enjoy the hospitality from the hostress a lot. Such hot summer, when I came in the room she presented me a bowl of cool watermelon which was really a relief. The location of the Guesthouse is quite near the Nara Park,which is a must-go spot in Nara.
sg_calayag ...let me see...the owners are soooooo kind; the place is neat and so cozy, so relaxing; the location is so convenient for commuting for both bus and train. Just love the place, wont hesitate to recommend to friends
confusioni Very nice, small, traditional looking guesthouse moments from the JR Nara station. Great service by friendly bilingual owners - and very nice vibe.
jaclyn.sin The location is ideal, a two minute walk from the JR line train station and a 15 minute walk to the Nara Park which houses the Great Buddha. The hotel is brand new - only a week old when we were there (March 7&8, 2010). So, it is extremely clean. The owners, a husband and wife, speak excellent English and they were so attentive and helpful! I recommend this hotel hands down!!!

australia_anton Really a warm and cozy place, i enjoyed every minute i spent there. The friendly owner is a very easygoing guy, helpful and kind. It felt being at home instead of being in a hostel. One of the best ever since i`ve been traveling the world...and it`s been many years now.
Egmont The people running this charming hostel are simply great, I felt really welcome and kinda didn't wanna leave.
hannahbell Check-in time is at 4pm and Check-out time is at 10am so it's a little bit different from the standard time. We arrived in Nara from Tokyo and was a bit tired then. We thought we can check-in already but we still need to wait for 4pm (although they allowed us to leave our luggages so we can stroll around the tourist spots). The staff are very friendly. The place is very clean and the ambiance is a bit traditional. The location is very near the train station, bus terminal, tourist spots and restaurants. We love the location since you don't have to spend in order to tour Nara.
