Totally Recommended!”

Renovated old house but everything was well-arranged with retro feeling. They also have a cafe&bar in the same building so you can have a excellent breakfast with extra fee(¥500) or enjoy some foods and beverages on their business hours. Staffs were super friendly and brought us to the fond to show us beautiful fireflies by their car(for free!). You can reach to both JR and Tobu Nikko station in 2 minutes by foot and big supermarket is also in walking distance. There is basic kitchen and living room to communicate with other guests. 10/10 my best stay in recent few years.

Tora's guesthouse is at an excellent location - near to the train station, restaurants and grocery store. The guesthouse itself is nicely furbished and rooms have heating to counter the winter chill. However, it was the hospitality and friendliness of Tora himself that left the deepest impression on me. Couldn't have asked for a better accommodation for my maiden trip to Nikko, definitely heading back there again

Helpful Mr Tora, superb location”

Everything was great. All the bedroom was at the 2nd fl. Mr Tora was reall helpful. He help to bring my luggage upstairs. I got the lower bunk as per request when booking. They provide heater with the extra thermal blanket. Nikko's really cold at night this autumn. The shower was at the 1st fl and toilet was at the mid level. Only one. But it's okay. Not a long queqe when I was there. You can cook at the pantry. Free use of the tableware. They provide free towel to be used also. Simple basic room. Feel homey and traditional. The location was superb. In between jr nikko and tobu nikko st. Less than 5 minutes walk to each way. Mr Tora also provide basic map area where to eat and buy grocery around the area. Will come back to stay if I went back to Nikko

Very convenient japanese-style little guest house with a friendly atmosphere and helpful staff. About 15 to 20 minutes walk from Nikko's shrine (everyone can do it, the road goes straight so you can't get lost). Would recommend to travellers who want to meet other guests (foreigners or not) as well as a nice local japanese staff.

Tora is the BEST host!”

Our stay at Tora Hostel was exceptional! On our first night, Tora made dinner for all of the guests for only 500 yen each and it was a huge feast of a meal. It was the nice multicultural night that everyone would hope for with friendly people, good food and an amazing atmostphere. The location is right near the main station and shops, plus very clean rooms. Thank you Tora, we will be back again!

Good choice for Nikko and Oku-Nikko”

Good location to travel Nikko and Oku-Nikko; Close to JR and Tobu Nikko, and a big supermarket within walking distance. The front is a cafe, and the entrance to Hostel is at side door. The staff are friendly and helpful with questions. Stayed in spacious 4bed female dorm during Winter. As the dorm is not equipped with heater, it was cold but bed comes with electric heating blanket; heater available in common room. Rooms are on 2F, so you'll need to carry your luggage up the stairs. Take care of your valuables as there were no keys to the main door and dorm. Will be great if Tora can put in a shoe rack as there were many shoes at the narrow doorway.
