We stayed in Yuzan Guesthouse for one night and we loved it! Very helpful informations, clean and authentic rooms and you can rent bicycles there to go for a ride in the park. This by the way, i would highly recommend! We only had one morning to explore the Nara park with all its attractions, and because of the bicycles...

Loved this hostel! We´ve stayed in the private room which is quite nice, with a traditional Japanese atmosphere and good space for two people. Comfortable futons to sleep on and very cozy. We also like the atmosphere of the common area, with sofas, tables, free tea and coffee.The hostel is besides Sanjo Dori street, plenty of restaurants, shops, mini markets...

Stayed here for 2 nights in Feb 2016 with my partner. This has been one of our favourite hostels in Japan so far. It's more of a traditional type hostel, also very clean and tidy and staff are great. Located just round the corner from the station where there is a big supermarket. Would highly recommend this hostel.

Experience the life of a Japanese while staying at Yuzan. Friendly owner and good location. (5 mins walk from Nara Station). Besides Nara Station, it is a close walk to the other spots in Nara to visit. Nearby restaurants nearby too.

The Yuzan Guest House in Nara is a hostel that can score with its traffic-convenient location. There are only a few minutes walk from Central Station in Nara to the hostel. The rooms at the hostel are neat, beds Japanese standards corresponding to a bit hard, but you get used to it. Showers and toilets are clean and well maintained....

Friendly owner, good location, comfortable lounge, kitchen access and refreshments make this guesthouse a pleasure to stay at. Basic, but comfortable. We returned for a second visit and felt lucky to find an opening.

Short walk to Nara Park and Higashimuki Shopping Street, spacious guesthouse with bicycle rental too. Clean beds, slept well the 2 nights there. Has free tea and coffee and also a nice cozy common area with loads of guidebooks and magazines. Really traditional feel, it's like returning home every evening.

From the start and throughout my experience here was superb, especially after a stay at a much less than ideal guest house in Himeji had lowered my expectations . The Yuzan owner is always available to his guests with advice and encouragement throughout all waking hours. Bunk beds are comfortable and well-arranged. Shower facilities are a bit cramped but clean....

A fantastic cozy Japanese style guest house located just 3 minutes from the train station and about 15 minutes walk from the Nara Park. The well English speaking owner is very helpful and accommodating and helps you feel like home. The rooms, bathrooms, common room and kitchen clean. Free tea and coffee in the common room for free.
