    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.

    Another good choice for travelers.”

    Average Japanese quality. Very decent for the budget. I don't have major complains, I couldn't find any reason to complain. Can improve. A TV, radio or sound system should be good for the main room since is missing. And for the capacity of guests on the entire place, I don't think the number of tables are enough. I can't imagine the place crowded on Spring or Autumn and everybody eating or planing the intinerary on the same time on those tables without bothering each others like was with me. A trash bin should be provided on each shared room. Besides those small detail, I could say: my experience was fine.

    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.
