    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

    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!

    Good location”

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.
