This was more of a guesthouse than a hostel. Hiro the host was super chill and nice. the location was definitely a bonus as well since it was a minute walk to the entrance of the shrines

Lovely hostel with a little hint of traditional Japan mixed with funky backpacker hostel. The beds were so private I didn't feel like I was in a dorm! Shower room was amazing! Would definitely stay again, one of the best hostels I've been to!

We really enjoyed our time at Nikkorisou!! Hiro is super nice and helpful. He has great tips for things to see, day trips to the lake nearby and restaurant recommendations. He even cooked us a Japanese hot pot! It was delicious! The location couldn't be better. It's at the beginning of both major sightseeing trails. We wish we could have stayed longer and hope we can come back one day after the balcony overlooking the river is done. Thanks so much!!

Feels more like a home than a hostel. Probably because it is someones's home. Nice and personal place in a great location to visit Nikko and the park areas nearby. Hiro is one of the best hostelkeepers I've met so far, will visit again if I return to Nikko.

Had a great stay! Very friendly staff and great atmosphere in the hostel. Comfortable beds, and as the hostel is located at the river you hear the relaxing sound of the nearby waterfall whilst in your bed. Located close to the world heritage sites as well.

Hiro is a great host! Offered to take us to the supermarket if we wanted food, made us coffee, recommended walks and sights. We had a BBQ one night with his friends at the hostel and it was so brilliant! The hostel is amazing. Really nicely decorated, free tea/coffee, the COMFIEST bed

This is the best hostel I have stayed in. I have traveled to many countries and stayed in countless hostels. But Nikkorisou had a wonderful atmosphere and I really enjoyed my stay. Hiro is a fantastic host and we had wonderful chats and a communal dinner that he arranged for us. He took us to the local supermarket when we needed as well. We made many long lasting friends and I will definitely stay here again!! Still dreaming of Nikko! 10/10.

Staying in Nikkorosu is one of the most enjoyable stay I had in Japan. The view from our room was simple breathetaking. The rooms and amenities are very nice

Nikkorisou is definitely the best hostel ever! Hiro gives everyone a home in Nikko. Everything is just so warm and wonderful, which make me feel like I've been there all my life. I met great travelers and we all share the same feelings about Nikkorisou: None of us wants to leave this house. From Nikkorisou, you can easilyn go just anywhere in Nikko - whether on foot or by bus/ train! I fell in love with Nikkorisou. And I will comeback to Nikko just for this place. Thao - from Vietnam.

I really liked the atmosphere and the sound of the river nearby. This place has character. As close to world heritage area as possible. A nice living room. There is also a very nice restaurant about 100m away to the direction of Nikko station where you get delicious food for less than 1000 yen (a place full of paper notes by happy customers).

The location of this hostel is super super convenient! Hiro is a great host, when he realised I hadn't had dinner he offered to drive to the nearby supermarket so i could get something to eat, that was really nice of him! Thank you!! :D The common room has really good vibes, and it is really easy to make friends there. He really tries his best to make Nikkorisou feel just like a home for his guests, and that is really good! Highly recommended!!

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
