Nikkoriso is just around the corner from where you want to be in Nikko, namely the world heritage temple area. Plus, the bus stop that takes you everywhere else is not even a minute away and you will need the bus if you stay more than one day at least. Walking to the train station takes 20 minutes. Or you...

My friend and I arrived around 20.00 at Nikkoriso and all stores for food near by were already closed. Luckily, Hiro drove us to the next supermarket and we could cook an easy meal in the big kitchen. We were really grateful and it was a fun evening with cooking, talking and watching funny Japanese TV. I really enjoyed my... More

Pros: Great location if you want to visit the shrines and Lake Chuzenji. The hostel is located no more than a 5 minute walk from Shinkyo bus stop. Shinkyo bus stop is about a 5 minute bus ride from the Tobu Nikko train station (where you may arrive if coming from Tokyo). The hostel is within walking distance to the... More

My husband and I recently spent a month travelling in Japan, and Nikko was our second stop. We just loved our three days in Nikko and our choice of accommodation at the Nikkorisou. Hiro, our host, was really friendly and helpful. The house was lovely and homey - just perfect for backpackers. We were able to book the private room,... More

Nikkoriso is a real house of japanese who turn some rooms into dorm and private rooms. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is very close and in a walking distant to the main tourist attractions of Nikko, There is a grocery store with small food corner nearby and few restaurants.

I originally wanted to stay at Nikko Guesthouse Sumica because of its popularity but I changed my mind and decided to try this "Hidden Gem" of Nikko as claimed by other reviewers. I was intrigued by this backpackers hostel because of its artistic and rustic style atmosphere based on their Facebook and website Photos and I appreciate Art so much.... More

This was one of my favorite places I stayed in Japan. It's very clean and unique and attracts people from all over the world. We had several family dinners. I spent a couple days climbing mountains around Nikko and came back to a hot shower and a very comfortable bed. I highly recommend staying at the Nikko Backpackers Hostel!

This is a common family house style hostel. So very homy, cozy and comfortable. It's located just across the bridge to Toshogu shrine area and yet it's one street behind the main road so nicely quiet. When you get through this charming small entrance room then you'll find unique, clean and cozy living / dinning room which heated by a... More

First this hostel couldn't be in a better location! Walking distance from the temples it's an idea place to stay for those who are doing a quick trip. The hostel itself was very clean and the beds were so super comfy. We stayed one night in a mixed dorm and saw just about everything there was to see in Nikko.... More
