This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We stayed at Zen hostel for 3 nights during August,
and the place was amazing!
The place has a very autentic feel about it, combined with the
monuntains and forest surrounding the place it is perfect as
Refugee from the pulsating life of Tokyo !

We had our doubts concerning the location before we went
beacuse it seemed a bit far from the World heritage site and Nikko, but
they were all put to shame by Scout and his shuttlebus, because of his flexibility with getting us to locations in Nikko and fetching us when done exploring.

Good luck with everything Scout

Beautiful place along a stunning river with an excellent American host serving a good western style breakfast. We have spent three great days here and have had a very good time indeed. It is an excellent place to stay for those who want to explore the magnificent Nikko World Heritage Area, but also for those who like hiking a lot. Thanks to the free shuttle service offered by the hostel it was very easy to get around. In the Obu-Nikko area there are several beautiful and well indicated hikes, some of them also described in the Lonely Planet Hiking in Japan. In summer there are frequent buses from Nikko that take you straight to the hiking trails. For the less adventurous, the area around the hostel is very pretty as well. Zen hostel is a comfortabel place to stay and it has some unique facilities that we really enjoyed, such as a shower room overlooking the river and high speed wifi connections. And the river itself of course; really nice for swimming or just cooling down. Highly recommended.

If you are seeking holidays far from the lights and sounds of the city, Zen provides this first class opportunity. Located next to the river and surrounded by trees, Zen hostel sets a great environment for relaxing. The service is great, the hostel owners are trying their best to make everyone happy from daylight until late at night, thank you Zen hostel!!!

We enjoyed our stay at the Zen Hostel. Nikko was great and their place was perched above a beautiful river surrounded by trees. We ate well, slept well, and escaped the Tokyo summer!!!
Also, special thanks to Scout for accomodating 7 people with little notice.
