I loved the riverhouse and I regret that I had only 2 nights there - would have been great to stay for a few more! The house is built right on the river so the sound of the river is always around you. The living room is a cosy social space with everyone sitting around the kotatsu. Scout's breakfasts and pizzas were excellent and he gave great advice and detailed maps on how to get around Nikko. He also went out of his way to get us to a very early train. Thanks Scout! Seeya next time :)

I definitively enjoyed my stay here. The place has a nice location next to the river, good beds in the dorm and a nice common room where you can meet with your fellow travelers. Scout (the host) makes perfect breakfasts in the morning and then drops all his guests off at the sites they want to be at that day. Scout is very flexible, helpfull and considerate about his guests schedule.

Where to begin? This has been the best hostel I've stayed at while traveling through Japan! The house itself is great. The location is amazing. You're right beside the river, in the middle of nature and the outdoor space is perfect for hanging out. Don't let it's "out of the way" location scare you off. The host offers shuttle services which makes getting to and from the hostel easy. The people I met were top-notch, and we had a great weekend together. I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Had a great time during my stay at the hostel, beautiful and relaxing environment. Getting there was no issue with the pickup and dropoff service. Scout also makes an effort to provide a great breakfast which tasted great and was more than enough. Definitely reccomended!

the host is very busy running the hostel alone so be awarw that morning drop off will certainly be delayed during week ends. But he is very nice and friendly and takes a lot of care of his guests. It is only too much work for one person alone.
