Hiro is a great host: wholehearted and passionate about is job of caring for his guests. We just spent an evening at Nikkorisou and had a nice talk with Hiro and other guests about world cultures, japanese habits, travelling etc. The hostel position is exceptionally close to the world heritage sites. We recommend the bento that are provided in collaboration with a nearby shop. We really suggest this hostel.

This is the best hostel I have ever been to. Hiro has a great place. He makes you feel right at home, which encourages everyone staying there to want to hang out and make friends. He took us for delicious Chinese food at a place his family often goes to, which further added to the feeling we were part of the family. The location is also fantastic. It's very close to several temples, is right at one of the bus stops and is next to a flowing river that lulls you to sleep at night. -John

This was possibly the best hostel I've stayed in. Firstly its location is perfect for getting to trails etc and Hiro the guy who runs it was very good about recommending places to go and things to see. The rooms are very clean and the facilities are good, but the thing that made this hostel for me was the relaxed atmosphere Everyone there was so friendly as well. I literally cannot recommend this hostel enough.

A small and lovely hostel. I really enjoyed my stay. The room was a private with shared bathroom. It had a great view and was a nice size. The kitchen and common room was extremely cosy, this was made particularly so due to the owner . He was very approachable and down to earth . He helped me with grocery shopping and drove me to the station if I needed it. It felt more like I was at an old friend's house visiting for the weekend. Well recommended , great place!

Nice hostel, friendly staff, great location- the kitchen's cleanliness wasn't great, but aside from that it was all very clean. Good beds. No air-con though.

I think this was the best hostel I stayed in while in Japan. The place is really small but has all the things you need while the atmosphere is great. The owner, Hiro, cooked a meal for all of the guests which was just amazing. Great food, very cheap and really nice company. He really knows how to make it feel welcoming and like home. I wish I could have stayed more than one night as it would have been the perfect place to relax after the craziness of Tokyo. If you go to Nikko, stay here!

My favorite place in Japan so far. The hostel is not too close, but within walking distance to the station and easy enough to find. It is really close to some great trails and shrines. The guy who runs the hostel , Hiro, is friendly and speaks good English and cooked everyone amazing okonomiyaki, which he charged an extremely reasonable price for. Highly recommended.

I greatly enjoyed my stay with Hiro. This was, as advertised, a true backpackers hostel. The hostel was great, which is reflected in my rating. The main disappointment I had was that the town of Nikko was really tourist central. This is absolutely not a quiet Japanese village with historic temples on the outskirts of Japan. This is a town that has capitalized on the fact that they have temples and set up a thriving industry disneyland style.

Nikkorisou feels like home. Its a place that is easy to love and hard to leave. Excellent location with easy walking distance to the heritage sites. Its 20 seconds away from the nearest bus stop. True to the spirit of o-mo-te-na-shi (Japanese Hospitality), the staff makes you feel comfortable and very welcomed. We cooked dinner together, had late night conversations, and laughed with our hands over our mouths for fear of waking the whole village. Stay here, you will not regret.

This is probably the best place to stay in Nikko. You are seconds away from there main temples and attractions. Hiro is the best host, we had a dinner party the first night I was there and the second we went out for sushi. I highly recommend staying here.
