I had one of the best times of my trip at Nikkorisou, the caretaker was wondefully nice and I had fun with everyone. If you are lucky enough, you might be chasing wild monkeys at your arrival, before entering the shrines' hill and discovering the breath-taking nature surrounding you. Although it was for less than a day, I will never forget it, and will definitely go back to Nikkorisou when I go back to Japan!

I stayed 4 days at Nikkorisou hostel where I spent a wonderful time. The atmosphere of the house is perfect for chilling in this nice mountains area and it's very well located to enjoy your time in Nikko. The owner of the house is really kind and ready to help you for anything. It was a real pleasure meeting him and discussing about japanese culture. So I highly recommend this hostel!

We visited after Christmas. Great location and interesting home, which could be better. Limited shower facilities. Propane heater in room which had a gas smell when turned on. Host friendly in that he drove us to a grocery store, but no b'fast on any kind, and limited kitchen.

wonderful hostel right next to the temple sites. Me and my girlfriend stayed there for the second time this year and hands down: this is probably the best hostel I know! It has an incredible welcoming and cozy atmosphere and an awesome host. Also he speaks English really well and gives good tips and advices. The kitchen is well equipped and the living room even has a heater-table... You don't go to a hostel - you visit Hiro (the host) in his home...

There were no locks on the dorm room doors and no lockers in the rooms either to store valuables. The room was very cold and there were no extra blankets to be found in the room. Only one shower and one toilet in the hostel which was not ideal. Directions to the hostel could have been better as the local bus goes roughly once an hour.

Only spent one night here but the location is so good to see all the Nikko temples and then directly across the road from a bus stop to Cuzenji lake and Onsens. Right by the river and Hiro was one of the first hotel/hostel managers I came acrossthat could speak english OK too.

Nice hostel with a japanese style Kotatsu in the common room. But only free wifi (unconvenient when you don't have any mobile phone or PC with you).

The best thing about Nikkorisou is the atmosphere in my opinion. It inspired me to have something like this place in my home town!

By far the most homely and friendly hostel in Japan (from my experience). Hiroaki is an awesome guy, he is more like another backpacker than the owner. He sat around and drank and chatted with us every night. 10/15minute walk into town, but 2 minutes from all the really good stuff in Nikko. the hostel itself in clean and tidy. The beds are comfortable, and the bathroom is great. Really hope to get back here again next year. Cheers Hiro.

Nikkorisou was a wonderful place to stay. Hiro was very helpful. The location was great! It was a 5-minute walk from the World Heritage sites and only a short bus ride to the station. It was right beside a river and it was very soothing to hear the running water at night. The facilities were perfect and there was a lot of information on what to do, where to go, where to eat, etc... all over the hostel. It had a very artistic vibe about it. And I really liked being able to sign the wall!
