Great location, just steps from both train stations and main bus stops of Nikko. Supermarket and laundromat nearby. Staff were enthusiastic and eager to provide travel and eating recommendation. Possible to leave luggage during the day. 3-beds dorm was very cramped (only one person can circulate at a time). Very cold at night in December (fortunately the blankets were quite...

Only stayed one night here but found the accommodation very welcoming. They were happy to help with sightseeing plans and restaurant tips. When I accidentally booked for the right day but the wrong month it could have been disastrous but the hotel staff quickly helped fix the issue by providing "emergency" accommodation in the lobby area. Something they apparently do...

The location was awesome (right by the train station), the lodgings were wonderful (very comfy, free wifi, and power sockets by the beds). However, the biggest and best thing about this location was the people! From the start, when we arrived in Nikko to check in and got given maps, directions and additional recommendations on locations to visit. Then playing...

Nice, clean Traditional Japanese guest house. The best thing is the owners and staff are so friendly. The location is the best, 3 minutes from Nikko main station. There is an open kitchen where you can make your own cup of tea, breakfast or dinner.

This is a charming little guesthouse in a good location right next to the station. We had a beautiful Japanese Style room, and the host was very helpful and friendly. Shared bathroom was clean. Would stay here again.

We really felt like at home here: everyone was very very kind and helpfull (they also gave us a lift with their car our to go to a place close to the guest house!).Our room was quite small but very clean with tradional tatami and futon, and with the bathroom very close to the room. Hope to come back again...

This cheap little hostel near Nikko's rail and bus stations offers small dorms and private rooms. It feels more like a homestay than a professional hostel: the rooms are cramped and there is only one shared shower and toilet. There is some street noise. The cheerful Japanese manager loves organising communal activities for guests.

This was our second time in Nikko, and our second stay at Guesthouse Sumica. It was as good if not better as when we were there in 2013. The owners are a delight. The guests cooked dinner together one night and played cards the other night - it's a really happy place!

Arrived for check in and created by very friendly hosts, they asked if I'd like to some sports that evening to which I agreed. A few hours later myself and the other guests were all in the nearby gym with a load of locals playing badminton and basketball - absolutely brilliant fun! After the sports we all chilled out in...

Spent just one night here and didn't have tons of time in Nikko, and I never would have been able to make the most for it if not for the wonderful hosts. They gave me a terrific overview of the trails, the bus situation, and helped me choose the best hiking route for my one day in town. They also...
