    A great option for a hostel accommodation and right in Nikko nonetheless. The owner gave me an amazing itinerary for the one full day I had there and it all worked out great with an early start. They also offer a great dinner/breakfast service which is great. Definitely your best bet for staying in Nikko.

    Me and two mates stayed here for a few nights between rugby World Cup days to do some hiking. It’s a lovely hostel. Breakfasts are cheap and yummy. I stayed here ten years ago and came back a bit worried nostalgia was colouring my good memories but it was just as boss as I remembered.

    Great hostel with great vibe! Highly recommend. Only downside is that it is a 20 minute walk uphill from town. Still worth it.

    Felt very cosy and homely, there was a lovely common area with a tv and a log fire. Staff were very friendly and there is dinner and breakfast if you want it. Only problem was there wasn’t much space to put your bags in the dormitories, but I would definitely go back again.

    Really enjoyed my stay at Nikko Park Lodge. I sadly got a really wet day in Nikko but this is a beautiful hostel in the hills of the town. It's a little far from the station if the weather is bad but a taxi is only 700 yen. The staff were really friendly and provided an excellent breakfast and supper. The atmosphere and location is really unique and definitely a change up from standard hostels. Would definitely stay again if I'm make in Nikko. Thanks!

    Had a wonderful, relaxing time at Nikko Park Lodge. The hosts are kind and informative, feeling more like a home than a hostel. The hike up to the hill to the hostel is not kind, especially those with suitcases, but defiantly manageable and its a beautiful walk. Hostel is surrounded by lush forest in a quiet area. The shower rooms might be off putting to those who have not use Japanese style showers before. Prepare to feel a bit confronted and open minded. I would stay here again. Thankyou :)

    Nice place. The staff are super nice and helpful. The main lad who works at the front even gave us a ride down the mountain to the bus station and also took our bags in his car down to the train so we wouldn’t have to carry them. Laundry was great and the shower was cool. My only complaint is the pillow that we receive is not sufficient and really needs to be bigger. I had to use my sweatshirt as a pillow because of how thin it was

    Somewhat remote location but very peaceful and serene. The dorm is pretty standard with 8 beds, you have to make the bed yourself. 30 min walk from Nikko station (or 5 min 700 yen taxi) and about 25 min walk to temple area through woods (but on a road). Breakfast was good and reasonable price (600 yen for scrambled eggs coffee & toast. Shower is a hand held thing in a room with a large traditional bath...sort of feels like you’re outside cause the ground is stone and one wall is glass
