The hostel is not that expensive and we met very cool people here but the hostel itself was terrible. When we entered the hostel we met the host, she was talking to another customer. We waited for five minutes with all our bags on us, then decided to go inside, she commanded ”Don't enter! the check in is here”. We... More

This is a cozy backpackers place in a very convenient location, just next to all the main attractions in Nikko. Very clean and well taken care of. The owner put an effort to make it look personal, there are little illustrations all over the place (map of the house, map of Nikko etc), fun to look at :) Very peaceful... More

Super good rooms, really cute, there are little illustrations all over the walls. The bathrooms and everything were super clean. The guesthouse has a really chill vibe, the owner, Hiro is really friendly and always helps out. He leaves free breakfast stuff and snacks. The location is really good, super close to the bridge and temples, also bars and restaurants.... More

This takes the best of a homestay and hostel and blends it well. Bed with privacy curtains were comfortable, rooms (with the exception of the bathroom and hallways, considered normal in Japan) were heated and very warm. It was snowing outside so we appreciated it. Hot shower and large 6 bed dorm room. Everything is clean. We stayed 2 nights... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in early January. Hiro was very welcoming and and we had an easy check in. We booked the downstairs traditional tatami room. The room was spacious and we got our own heated traditional table! As well as another gas heater. The room wasn't completely traditional but Hiro's touches made it cosy- artwork, decorations, nice...

Stayed at the female dorm for a night. Great location, 2-minute walk from the nearest bus stop "shinkyo", which is merely 5-minute ride from Nikko station. Perfect place for exploring the shrines, which is accessible in less than 10-minute walk. Cozy common area with a big window that you could enjoy the colorful foliage in the morning simply sitting down... More

This Guesthouse is in a great location literally across the street from where most of the main sites in Nikko are. The hostel is clean and Hiro is a fantastic host! I would definitely stay here again if I ever go back to Nikko

This hostel is very nice! The location is perfect, just steps away from the famous bridge and the world heritage sites. The hostel is clean and very comfortable, you can hear the river which makes it very nice to sleep. The owner is very friendly and helpful and speaks good english.

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...
