More than a great location”
Im travelling around Japan where everybody knows it can be expensive, so I used to stay in guesthouses mostly. Oak Hostel are really close to kintetsu-nara station in a not so busy street but full of coffee shops and some shops, the hostel its very clean and spacious, have many facilities like coffee, tea even small breakfast for a reasonable price. The staff are very nice, perfect English speakers and also some available to speak in another languages like Spanish or French. Dont hesitate to stay here if you want to go around Nara
good location but small room”
Location is great, quite near for the subway. But room is small, no enough spaces for 2 luggages. Staffs are friendly and speak quit good English. There's free drink in the hall, and cheap delicious bread.
I stayed here almost 2 months, Here is the most good domitory in nara”
i stayed many domitory in nara, but here is the most good place for me first they do cleaning hardly everyday from 10pm~ 1am second bathroom and toilet is enough large and clean third enough huge lounge exist, so i can using that place with free cofee and tee 4th, all step is kindful if i visit nara again, i will stay here more
Nara + travel + work”
Perfect location, close to kintesu-nara station, across the higashimukinakamachi (food street) where you can see 2 master sifus pound and beat the mochi at nakatanido. It is about 25mins walk to nara park and todaiji. Small room, neat and clean. Good hostel service, hashi san is very friendly and attentive. The hostel has spacious hall with a vending machine and free coffee.
Quiet and nice hostel in an amazing position”
The hostel is very close to the station and to the town center, and just about ten minutes from the park. The stuff is ver nice, the beds are comfortable, everything is very clean and it's quiet in the night. They also offer tea and a pastry for breakfast for just 100y, which we happily took advantage of!
All are fine and good. There is only one point, we stayed in twin room, there was a refrigerator but no hot water boiling pot in the room. Need to go to lobby to obtain hot water. If they add it or can be borrowed from the front, much more better
Best option in Nara considering the location and cost”
At first, we didn’t have high expectations on this hostel because this was the only option we could find at that moment. When we reached the hostel, the lobby looked spacious and cozy. There were so many sofas for the guests to relax. Guests could have tea and coffee for free as well. Staff was friendly and helpful. He spoke English pretty good. His instructions were clear to point. For the guest room, it was standard in terms of the size and equipment. The location was fantastic since the Nara Park was within 10 mins walk, and restaurants and convenience stores were downstairs. Highly recommend this hostel to all visitors!
Close to park and transportation.
Lovely little hostel”
Really nice place close to everything in Nara. Plesant staff, helped with maps and places to eat and routes to all temples and Nara park. Room was ok , bed was comfortable. Basic room ,but that's all you need in Nara. We managed to visit all the major sites in one day.
awesome hostel. highly recommend ”
the staff are very nice and helpful. they can speck fluent english. You able to have privacy while in restroom for wash up face. The room is very clean. Personally think this is the greatest hostel so far in japan.
Super clean hotel in good location”
The staff are super helpful with *excellent* English. Well located and very clean rooms. and quite easy to find from Kintetsu train station. Very quiet too, good wifi. Light breakfast for a small additional charge. All very good.
Modern hostel with private rooms of hotel standards”
The private bathroom was small, but otherwise modern and very clean. Was a very pleasant stay. Very near to kintetsu nara station, and within walking distance to nara park and todaiji. Will stay again if i revisit nara.
Clean and comfortable, from Kintetsu Nara and bus stop 5-8 minutes arrive. Eat, drink are great! The only missing is cold air filter dirty, I own remove the cleaning, a child's mother, very concerned about the point.
Best Hotel, Best Location, Best staff”
We are very happy when we stayed there. The location is very closed to train station, park, market. The room was very clean and quiet. More facility than our expect. The staff very friendly and willing to help. We will come back again next year.
A great place to stay! ”
I had a great time at this hostel! Only thing I would say is that it was a bit of a walk from the JR Station. It was however very close to the temples and shrines and the deer! Also there was a 7/11 about a half block away and lots of food choices right around the corner!
small room but its ok”
the room is small, but we can go to the lounge area to drink free coffee and tea, staff is good and can speak proper english. The only thing i'd like to share is the gap below the door is bit big, i can feel the cold air coming underneath. I suggest hotel can install air blocking strip to prevent cold air coming in.
We arrived at around 11:30 asking to leave our luggage, but the host allowed us to check-in. facilities were clean, room was quiet, host was kind and good at english, close to subway station. Drawback is small roomsize. Excellent value for money.
The location is great and it's just next to all the tourist spots and 200m away from Kintetsu Nara station if you are planning to come from Osaka or Kyoto. The hotel facilities are just average. The common area is quite small to fir a lot of people.
A great place to stay in Nara. The location, staff and general facilities are fantastic. Only comment is that the bed mattress can be improved as the one we got has seen some mileage. That said, I have no 2nd thoughts on staying with them if I ever visit Nara again.
good location, close to nara park and commercial center.
