great hosting staff と 渋い感じ大好き”
Sorry to review this great hostel so late after 10months of my stay... The staff was a wonderful , handsome Japanese young man - even better looking than 木村拓哉!who was so professional, 親切 knowledgable, helpful and speaks great english... I hope he still works there and see my thanks note.. The place was definitely a traditional Japanese charm.. With a zen garden in the middle and detached guest house ... Little bit crowded upper floor but doesn't really bother ..

The guesthouse is located in a typical Japanese house which gives the possibility to have a glimpse of real Japan for tourists. Beautiful interior, great garden and most of all very helpful and super nice staff.

Nice and warm guesthouse”
A great experience living in a traditional Japanese style guest house. Love the Japanese style table with a heater underneath, which is perfect for the cold weather! The guesthouse is around 10 minutes walk from the station, and close to Todaiji Temple. The staff is very friendly and helpful staff as well!

Great”
Pros: cute traditional guest house. I went in the fall so it was cold. The kotatsu was great. Clean bed. Decent location from sights. Cons: far from jr station, but walkable. Ice cold water for washing your face (sucks when it's cold outside) but you get hot water in the shower.

Exceptional”
Very beautiful traditional house. So the walls are thin and stairs creaky but people there are really nice and polite so I didn't experience any disturbance at night. Lovely garden. Very easy to find. I'd also recommend going on the observatory of the nearby Nara pref. hall to have a bird's eye view of the city. I've had a wonderful time in Nara and can't wait for my next stay.

great welcome in Japan”
ambiance, cleanliness, price
Stayed in a 4/rm female dorm. The atmosphere in the guesthouse is very conducive to mingling (that's a lot coming from an introvert). Wifi has limited reach and doesn't really reach the 2nd floor room I stayed in. The place is clean and beautiful, with a central garden. The wooden structure adds to the feel but can also be quite noisy. Two bathrooms and two showers seem to be enough for all. Staff are friendly, helpful, and with okay English. You can also buy instant food at the guesthouse if you're desperate. Distance from public transport and stores is okay. Overall wish I could have stayed a bit longer. Overall, although there are guesthouses with better facilities, it was the most fun, friendly place I stayed at in Kansai.

Traditional house near park in Nara”
location- the house is very close to the park where three of the more popular temples in Nara area, nice common areas for meeting other travelers, beautiful old house
I enjoyed my stay at the guesthouse- the house was a very beautiful traditional Japanese home, which are normally very expensive to stay in. The location was good- only a short walk to the park and some of the more popular temples in the area. Overall a very nice stay for my overnight in Nara!
