            Incredible deal for travelers who travel light”

            My initial reason/s for booking: It was a highly-rated new property that was close to the Shin-Omiya rail station. Duration of stay: 2 nights First impressions: Most of the space inside the double room is taken up by the bunk beds, so I'd recommend that everything you need to bring out once inside the room (electronics, change/s of clothes) should fit in a small backpack. If you're bringing a big backpack or a trolley bag, it's better to ask the reception to store them. Later realizations: Pick the lower bunk bed if you're used to sleeping in chilly temperatures, & pick the upper bunk bed if you're used to sleeping in warmer temps. Most shops in the department store downstairs close at 8 PM so plan accordingly if you want to buy a cheap dinner from the foodcourt. If the distance between the rail station & the hostel is too far for you, the nearest bus stop that takes you to the city center is just a very short distance away, in front of Nara City Hall. Will I recommend it? Yes

            Awesome stay in an awesome place!”

            Don’t go anywhere else, BOOK HERE! Holy crap this place is soooooo nice, especially for the price. Nicest place we stayed in our whole trip and also the cheapest at $15/day. The facilities were 5 star and the bunks were comfy. Only complaint would be that the top bunk can get a little hot so leaving the curtain open while you sleep may be necessary. Either that or get a room with a double bed! But awesome place and great location!

            It was a really nice stay. The hostel just opened in April so everything is brand new. The staff was really kind and helpful and everything was sparkling clean. It's a good and cheap spot to stay even if the rooms are quite small. You have also a supermarket and a bakery which makes delicious food in the center! There is a shuttle service from the hostel/shopping center to the train station offered which is driving once an hour.

            Das Hostel ist wohl eher ein Hotel. Es liegt im 7.OG einer Mall, sodass man den Supermarkt nur eine Fahrstuhlfahrt entfernt hat. Alles ist super nobel und sauber. Das Wifi läuft tadellos. Man bekommt einen Spint mit Zahlenschloss, Schlappen, Handtuch und Zahnbürste extra abgepackt. Es gibt viele WCs und Duschen, Sitz-&Stehplätze im Bad mit Haartrocknern und vielen Pflegeprodukten. Leider gibt es in den Räumen selbst keine A/C und die Räume haben nur Vorhänge, keine Türen. Auch sind die Räume seehr eng, sodass Privatsphäre etwas fehlt. Obwohl das Hostel ca 2km vom Park entfernt liegt, fahren kostenlose Shuttle, womit das kein Problem darstellt. Alles in allem ein herausragender Ort und das für nur 7,50€ die Nacht. Einfach unglaublich!!!

            A beautiful place to stay in Nara”

            I think this is the best hostel (it's more like a hotel) you can stay in Nara. The place is very beautiful & clean, the staff is super polite and friendly. The hostel is on the top floor of a mall, so you have a supermarket and various stores right below you. There are free shuttles to the three main train stations, so you can take one of them to go to the Nara park.

            素泊まりで価格を抑えたかったのでここを選択しました。この価格でこれだけのサービスを受けられるのであれば大満足です。奈良ならではの施設の有効活用だと感心しました。 鍵を外からかけられないので、荷物は都度ロッカーから出し入れする必要があります。ただ、部屋から出る機会は限られるので割り切ってしまえば気になりませんでした。 個人的には、泊まった部屋からは、景色が真下の屋上施設しか見えなかったのが残念でした。

            ツーリングでの宿泊で利用しました。 一階にスーパーもあり、便利だと思います。また利用するか否か選択すれば利用すると思います。 ヘッドフォンが片側しか聴こえない(不良品?テレビはあまり視聴しないので)ようでしたが、交換希望しませんでした。 二輪車を駐車したので駐車券を処理してもらいましたが、自転車、二輪車は対象外(無料)なので、別に駐輪スペースがあると駐車係から出庫時に聞きました。 これがなければ全て星五つという感じです。

            この度はセンチュリオンホステル奈良平城京をご利用いただきまして誠に有難うございます。ツーリングの旅でのご宿泊に当ホステルをお選びいただいたこと、スタッフ一同大変嬉しく存じます。商業施設ミ・ナーラの7階にございますので、スーパーや専門店、ボウリング場(アミューズメント)などがあり楽しんでいただけると思います。ヘッドホンにつきましては、お客様からの口コミを拝見して確認して参りました。お客様のおっしゃる通りヘッドホンが片方しか聞こえていなかったので、すぐに交換いたしました。お客様にはご不便をおかけしてしまい大変申し訳ございませんでした。そして、教えていただき有難うございます。清掃スタッフと共有して一つずつ確認して参ります。駐輪スペースのやり取りにおいては、こちらの情報不足が招いたことでございます。HPを変更いたしますので、少しお時間を頂けたら幸いです。貴重なご意見有難うございました。またのお越しを心よりお待ちしております。 フロント野田

            隔音問題外,其他都很棒!”

            地點: 在近鐵新大宮站附近一間mall的7F,mall本身有提供免費接駁到新大宮站、近鐵奈良、JR奈良,前往市區沒有問題,又或是可到附近公車站宮跡庭園站、奈良市廳站 搭前往春日大社、奈良公園的車 挺方便的 mall的一樓就是超市和美食街,也不用怕餓肚子 硬體設備: 由於是新開的hostel 整體都還是很新穎,算是高級的膠囊旅館,雖然沒有門,但還是有門簾,隱密性還可以,隔音當然就不會太好,外面是木地板,走路腳步重的就會蹦蹦蹦超級大聲,雖然大家都蠻注意講話音量但還是聽得見在說什麼,淺眠的就別考慮了吧!建議請櫃檯人員安排離置物櫃遠的房間,因為當天我們住置物櫃前,晚上陸續有人check-in要放東西,講話聲+腳步聲+關櫃子的聲音,完全無法入睡! 浴廁給人蠻高級的感覺,而且非常乾淨!

            호텔 같은 호스텔”

            호텔같은 호스텔이에요. 원형 형태의 게스트하우스이고. 건물내에 마트와 푸드코트,바,오락실등이 있어요. 단점은 신오미야역에서 1km이상 걸어야한다는것. 주변에 편의점 또한 1km이상 가야한다는것. 흡연자나 밤에 먹을꺼사러가긴 불편해요. 마트나 건물 폐점시간은 거의 pm9시입니다. 뷰는 사진만큼 좋진 않아요. 하지만 시설은 매우 좋습니다. 수압이 쌘 샤워부스, 수건2개, 치약,칫솔이 지급됩니다. 방내에 침대마다 tv와 거울이 있어요.

            NOH 님 이번에 저희 센츄리온 호스텔 나라 헤이조쿄점을 이용해 주셔서 대단히 감사합니다. 손님께서 말씀하신 대로 저희 호스텔은 미나라 쇼핑몰 7층에 위치하고 있어 푸드 코트,마트,금붕어 뮤지엄,오락 시설,약국 등등 다양한 시설을 이용하실 수 있습니다. 만약 자가용으로 오실 경우 미나라 쇼핑몰에서 관리 하는 제1주차장에 무료주차도 가능하시며 신오오미야역, JR나라역, 킨테츠 나라역 방면으로 가는 무료 셔틀버스도 운행하고 있으니 다음에 또 저희 호스텔을 방문 하게 되시면 이용 부탁드립니다. 뷰 말씀입니다만, 객실이 원형으로 배치 되어 있어 방마다 뷰가 다르기 때문에 잔실이 남아 있을 시에는 고객님께서 원하시는 방으로 변경 해 드리기도 합니다. 설명이 부족 했던 것 같습니다. 주의 하도록 하겠습니다. 저희 호스텔은 작년 4월에 오픈하여 객실은 물론 공용으로 사용하는 공간의 청결에 특히 신경쓰고 있으며 고객님들이 편하게 지내다 가실 수 있도록 늘 최선을 다하고 있습니다. 그렇기 때문에 “호텔같은 호스텔”이라는 칭찬은 그 무엇보다 값지고 보람 된 칭찬입니다. 다시 한번 감사드립니다. 나라에 재 방문 하게 되시면 저희 호스텔을 이용 부탁드립니다. 바쁘신 와중에 소중한 후기 남겨 주셔서 진심으로 감사드립니다. 프론트 담당 유 지연
