    For the Experience of a Traditional House”

    Hospitality-wise, it was excellent. I like the environment. I was there during non-peak period and hence, the place was quiet, what more with other considerate guests. However, this place is really far from any convenience stores. It makes it difficult to get additional bite. One extra good thing about this place is that it is located in one of the many streets that still have traditional houses. It was really pleasant to go out for a walk at night.

    Wonderful, charming traditional guest house, one of my favourite hostels I've stayed at! ”

    I absolutely loved my stay at Nara Guesthouse, Akie and the staff are so kind, polite and welcoming. If you're looking for a cosy traditional stay, then look no further. I would definitely come to this hostel if I come back to Nara. They have all the facilities you need, the bathroom style is like a mini 'Sento' great way to relax after a long day of walking. The whole place is decorated tastefully and the ambience is lovely, it is also super clean! It is close to Nara Park the highlight of Nara. Hope I have a chance to see you again Akie, I will bring my friend Kumamon :)

    So many sliding glass doors”

    Ok location for access, but far from train station. Very clean, but I Got bitten by insects, I hope that this was just a coincidence because it hadn’t happened before in Japan. Towel or pajamas not included with the price, they have everywhere else in Japan. Dorm tiny and had six beds, I wouldn’t want to be in it when it is at capacity. Bed was comfortable

    Traditional guesthouse style”

    I have a tatami style room, which is great and love it. Love the guesthouse style as it's a renovated house from the original Japanese house so most of the house is still just like a traditional Japanese house. The guesthouse near the nara park but a bit far from the train station.

    Make sure you know that check in is until 22:00”

    I was delayed arriving in Nara due to an error with trains from Kyoto station, however I booked here because there was no check in time until mentioned until other guest houses I saw in Nara had, so I assumed that it would be open for check in when I arrived. When I arrived around 23:40 nobody was there, and I couldn’t get any response by calling. Finally one of the other guests let me know and showed me an available bed. In the morning when I explained this to the staff she was rude and angry towards me and didn’t want to know my story. She replied one word in Japanese which I didn’t understand. I said I was sorry if she was angry. I later saw a message that was in my junk email folder sent at 22:00 the night before, but I hadn’t seen it as it had gone to my junk mailbox. Anyway I submitted all my passport details and paid. I tried not to think about this negative event too much as I didn’t want all the bad feeling to spoil my last day in Japan in Nara. Moral of the story is be aware, you cannot check in after 22:00.

    Great place!”

    I stayed for three nights and I enjoyed every minute of my stay. Everyone is exceptionally friendly, the food is delicious and very fair priced and Nara park with all the attractions, as well as Nara-Machi is just around the corner. The train station is easy to access via bus, which leaves 3 minutes away from the guest house. A big plus: they provide free ear plugs, if you require them. I will definitely recommend this place and be back, when I can.

Le bar est très agréable et la restauration excellente. La guesthouse est un peu éloignée de la gare mais très bien desservie par le bus et proche du parc à pied. Le quartier est calme et il y a plusieurs jolies maisons traditionnelles dans les rues voisines. La meilleure guesthouse où nous sommes allés au Japon. Merci beaucoup.

    Nice”

    From either train station, it's a bit of a walk past all the main attractions to here but not too far to walk. The hostel was comfortable and clean. The owner (who smiled all the time; cute) was very hospitable. It really feels like staying at a host's place rather than a dorm hotel. It is overall a nice place but on the first floor where I stayed there was only one toilet to use which could be problematic if many people need to use it at the same time, no laundry machines; acceptable but could be a deal breaker if you want to stay for many nights and the bed curtain does not completely block off the light.
