  • We very much enjoyed our stay at this hostel. Rooms were fine, location great, owner was nice, bike rental near by (550 yen). It's close to kintetsu train line connecting to Osaka and Kyoto. JR train station sadly is a little far away, better take a bus from there. The only negative thing to say about this place is the shower situation. I think there are 5 rooms with up to 4 people. One shower is definitively not enough for that many people.

  • A bit annoying to find with the loose directions. The owner spoke poor English but did have a map handy, so we found everything we asked for eventually. Nara is worth the visit.
