This hostel is great for friends traveling together and solo travellers.

It's like the vacation home you're parents used to take you to, but without the parents. We like it to be fun here.

Free optic fiber based wifi internet everywhere including the beach on the river, the open air lounge, common room, private rooms and annex rooms. There is also 2 iMacs in the common room.

Hire a bike(4) for 500 yen.

Free shuttle from 4pm to 11:30pm from Fubasami station on the JR Nikko line or Shimogoshiro Station (no phone at this station so call before you get on the train)

We can not pick up at Nikko station.

All private rooms are Japanese tatami style (private rooms have locks on doors) with futons; there are no bunk beds in private rooms, only in the mixed rooms.

Every morning our free shuttle takes guest to UNESCO World Heritage (Toshogu Shrine, Futarasan Shrine, Rinnoji Temple, Shinkyo Bridge).

Snorers have to sleep in the private annex riverside rooms and can not sleep in the mixed room.
