Exceptional”
If you want to stay in a traditional-looking room, then you will enjoy it here. We stayed in a bunk-bed but it was still good and is value for money. It is also not very far from the train station and not far from tourist spots/attractions especially if you will rent a bike. Taking taxi wouldn't cost you much as well. Two thumbs up to this hotel. Keep it up.

Nice!”
It was a very authentic japanese house. The staff was really really nice - we didn't manage to get a place to sleep for the night (2nd night in Nara, Route 53 was fully booked) and asked if we could sleep on the floor of the living room. They are working on another hostel in the neighbourhood, and we could sleep there! It wasn't finished yet, but they took care of everything in the room and we had a real nice staying! Guest House Route 53 is a good place to stay; the location is in the center of a lot of attractions ( 5 story pagoda - 5 minutes or less walk), everything is clean, blankets are comfortable, kitchen is big!! Thank you very much

Good location, good price, good host”
Excellent location with reasonable price. 7-to-10-minute walk to 近鉄奈良駅 and just next to the shopping stree, with many restaurants and gift shops. Go to 興福寺 just need 5 minute and you can get into Nara Park through this way. The host is a young man with good English. He is wellcome for luggage storage if you come early or leave Nara late. And also the common area on 1/F is opened for all use. The house has 2 floors, both with shared toliet but bathroom is only on 1/F. The only bad thing is that warm water is just got in the kitchen and bathrooms(I think hot enough for bath). Though these are shared facilities, all are clear and the others seem polite and considerate so no trouble with using those. The rooms are not so noise-proof so you may hear some sounds of chating from other rooms. Yet the neighbours talk quietly and the environment around is so peaceful. We lived in a family room, with 2 double-deck beds. So enough space for 4 people to sleep, place the luggage, and sit.

Not recommend...”
Location-wise it's very convenient, it's 5 minute away from the Nara park. The room was small, and only had a small portable heater which was not enough for the coldness. The rooms don't come with washrooms and the shared ones don't have hot water. Only cold water! Overall it's freezing cold staying in the house. Not recommend for winter travellers.

Great place, near to Kintetsu station and Nara Park”
We stayed at here for 2 nights, but this place was really nice and traditional Japanese style of house. This place was really convenient, a lot of streets with restaurants and shopping were nearby, and Nara Park was close to this guesthouse too. From Kintetsu Nara station, it is around 10 min walk to reach the guesthouse. Other than that, the staffs at here were nice, kind and friendly too. We spent a night to talk and share some opinions with each other. Overall it was really a nice and awesome guesthouse. We hope to come back to here again. thank you very much :)

Very Noisy Guesthouse!”
This is the most Ridiculous Check In Time in Japan. At 4:00pm. and Check Out is at 10:00am. The room is bunk bed with sooo narrow room space. The wall is so thin. You can hear all the guest's voices. Can not sleep at the 2nd night because the chinese next to my room keep talking all night long. Many chinese's guests in this guesthouse which is so noisyyy. They stupid mouth seems like can not stop talking.

OK for few nights”
Japanese-style living room. Free coffee means in reality that a coffee machine is at guests' disposal but no pad is availble ! No tea neither. Only cold/hot water. Tatami everywhere so no shoes allowed inside. Kitchen facilities but few sitting places. Doors/windows are made of fusama (thin paper) so that you hear everything and get light inside the room. Bed not confortable: materass is so thin that you feel the wood structure underneath. Only one shower per male/female. Far from station but good middle location between Nara park and old merchants' district.
