    Nice location off the main streets so it was a quiet area, but still very convenient to both JR and Kintestu stations. I didn't utilize the common area, but it looked like a nice peaceful place to hang out.

    Location is great as it is near both JR and Kintetsu stations. It is also near the shopping street. The room, bathroom and toilet are all clean. But it is quite cold at night. The windows are opened without notice.

    Good for a One Night Stay”

    If you are looking for a place just to lay your head down then this Guesthouse will get the job done. I was one of only 3 guests so if you are seeking a more social experience you may want to look elsewhere. That being said the beds were comfortable, the heating was tremendous for the cold winter, and the owners fairly accommodating letting me leave my bag there before check-in while I explored Nara. Solid place but nothing special.

    The staff was very helpful and kind. Very importantly, note that the guesthouse is close to JR Nara Station, and not the Kintetsu Nara station! The room was clean and facilities were tidy. There is a public bath nearby.

    Small guesthouse with good location”

    The location is ok. The guesthouse only have 2 toilets and only 1 toilet is for 24 hours. Also, the staircase is a bit narrow for big size person and not suitable to bring big luggage. Overall is fine if you only come back at night and stay few days.

    나라에 가서 어디에서 자야하나, 가격이 저렴한 숙소를 찾고있었는데 우가야 게스트하우스 혼성룸을 찾게되었습니다. 혼성룸은 처음이고 여자혼자 여행을 다니다보니 조금은 걱정했지만 침대마다 커텐을 칠 수있어서 아주 좋았습니다. 침구도 깨끗하고 편안한 느낌이였고, 샤워실도 혼자 쓰기에 정말 좋았습니다. 저 빼고 다 남자게스트분이였지만 안전하게 잘 수있었어요! 게스트하우스에 계신 직원?분에게 어디를 가야 좋을까요했는데 영어를 굉장히 잘하십니다. 알아듣기 편하게 말씀을 해주셔요. 숙소 1층에는 다다미가 있어서 아주 편안한 일본숙소 분위기였습니다! 나라에 가게되면 우가야게스트하우스를 또 찾을것같아요! 작은 골목에 위치해있지만 나라역에서 가까워요~
