Positives:
- Extremely friendly and helpful proprietor and staff
- Warm, homey common room with wood-stove
- Comfy, quirky room layouts
- Affordable and filling in-house breakfast and dinner buffets
- Gorgeous grounds
- Free, fast and high capacity wireless access
- Dorm wing and other multiple-bed rooms make it ideal for group travelers

Negatives:
- With some precipitously steep staircases, low ceilings and sudden drops, you have to be very careful where you step
- First floor common bath-room is somewhat grim (in-room bathrooms are just fine)
- If you're walking, it's not very close to Nikko temple complexes (an easy 10-15 minute drive, though)
- Can get cold at night, but electric blankets are provided


In sum: I would definitely come here again. You're not signing up for a four star hotel by any means, but for backpackers or casual travelers in need of a comfortable night's stay in a pleasant atmosphere, it's a great choice.

Room Tip: The 3, 4 and 5 person rooms on the second floor have the most interesting and funky layouts

A little way out of town but worth the slight inconvenience. Ken is a hospitable and helpful host. Comfy, clean and well-appointed rooms. Relaxing lounge/dining room with warm wood fire. Simple but filling meals. Good all round value.

We arrived at tobu station and took a taxi to the hotel, cause we knew it was about 15mins walk uphill. The taxi costs ¥710 which is worth it, cause it would be too hard to walk with bags on your back! The owner speaks very good English, and he was so helpful and informative about where to go and what to see!
The room was spacious, with an ensuite bathroom. They offer breakfast and dinner which you have to book in advance, but it's not the cheapest you can find! We always had dinner in town, which was quite dead by 17:30hrs!
Walking from the hotel to town & back is easy without any large bags, even in the dark cause there are lit roads all thorough the way, but we always had a flash light with us just in case!

Location was fairly good, with it being a 20min walk to major temples/sites. The shuttle service offered to the station every morning was useful. English is well spoken, and advice was good. Apart from this, the large open living area of hostel with log stove is really the only good thing about this place.

On the whole though this place has a slightly impersonal approach, with chaotic organisation. Meals were late, and often forgotten about, which is made worse by the fact that you pay a slightly pricey amount when you order. Portions were not up to the job given hiking is your likely pursuit.

On the whole the place is not that clean and the shower room is especially dirty and smelly with broken fixtures. Onsen/bath was out of use without explanation. All of the Shampoo/soap bottles had not been replenished.

Laundry is not a listed service, which is inconvenient.

This place is eccentrically run, but great fun. Overseen by a Japanese couple with excellent English, their staff seemed to consist almost entirely of European and American backpackers providing labour in exchange for free lodging. It makes it a bit haphazard, but enormously friendly and relaxing. Both breakfast and evening meals are served on communal tables - we thought the evening meals in particular were excellent value. Our rooms varied - one was spotless, albeit with a monumentally hard and uncomfortable bed; the bed in the other was fine, but one glance underneath it told us that housekeeping was - shall we say - haphazard. But just as when the toilet backed up, the staff responded swiftly and effectively. The overall atmosphere of the place was very sympathetic, and the exact antithesis of a chain hotel.
