    A Real Gem”

    I absolutely loved my stay in this guesthouse. It is a very comfortable place to stay. The room was clean and well-designed. The staff I met there spoke English, so it was easy to communicate. From here, it was not a long walk away from the station, restaurants, or popular destinations. They also had books and a computer available for guests to use. Good stay at a low cost! Highly recommend it.

    the Location was great but it was a bit hard to find because the name of the guest house was different on the Signe. The guy on the front desk ( Satushi) was grest and helped us a lot. the only down side was not enough hot water in the shower, the towels are very small and the walls are thin so you better put earplugs.

    The best guesthouse in Nara!”

    I really regret not booking a longer stay here. This guesthouse was by far the best one in Japan that I have stayed in so far. For starters, the location is excellent and located in the beautiful Naramachi area, with lots of art galleries, cafes and izakaya. The cafe owns its own cafe/bar IRO, with reasonably priced drinks and coffee. (Maker's Mark Highball is a solid 10 for ¥600!) The staff is extremely polite. They allowed us to check in early (around 11 am) and rest in our rooms, unlike most other guesthouses which have strict check in times. There are personal safety boxes and the beds have sliding Japanese wooden doors that ensure privacy. Even though it was a mixed dorm, I felt very comfortable staying here. The smoking area is right by the entrance and if you're a light sleeper like me you can rent a pair of ear plugs and a sleeping mask for a mere ¥200. FREE towels everyday and FREE slippers. This is my go-to place in Nara and I will never stay anywhere else in Nara!

    We stayed in a pleasant double room with ensuite. shower was very good. Place was clean. Bed comfortable. Room large enough for the two of us and our excessive luggage (not always the case in Japan, some rooms are very small). Restaurant and bar next door (and close to other places too). Easy to get to from station and easy walk to Nara sights. Friendly helpful staff.

    The property is small but comfortable. The cons will be that there is no pantry for the traveller's whose like to eat/cook their own food. But there is a restaurant in front of it and other good ones within the vicinity. The pros is it's so near to nakamachi which a shopping/dinning street at nara.

    Great location. Good choice!”

    It was a little on the expensive side and was slightly noisy at night due to other guests. We had a private room which had a double and a top bunk, but the top bunk was impossible to sleep on as it was too hard. However, overall we enjoyed our stay and the central location was fantastic for us. Would highly recommend, but try and grab a deal.

    réveillée le samedi matin par des travaux, encore des travaux à 16h l'après-midi. Les chambres sont au RDC du coup quand les personnes arrivent, elles discutent dans le hall et les sons sont amplifiés. On entend tout dans les chambres. Pas de cuisine. Il y a un frigo et un micro onde dans l'entré donc faut pas y rester longtemps. Il y a du café en libre service mais pas de thé. Les chambre sont jolies, propres ainsi que les couches et les wc. L'emplacement est bon. Malgré cela, ce n'est pas ma guesthouse préférée.
