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.

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).

I stayed here for three nights and it was the best 3 nights of my trip!!Great location easy to get to;0).. Met so many great travelers and I've gained a brother from another mother Hiro!! Who is the owner and a great host! He really makes you feel like ur part of the family and that you are at home. 2nd night we sat at the common room and Hiro taught us how to make Gyoza!! 3rd night we had sukiyaki!! I would highly recommend this place and I would've loved to stay longer!! Much love Hiro San!!!!

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

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.
