Best Hostel in Tokyo

Book and Bed Tokyo Hostel

This Tokyo Hostel Redefines what you think of Hostels.

If you’ve ever wanted to sleep in a bookstore then look no further. Book and Bed Tokyo is basically a bookstore that lets you sleep in the shelves. It occupies the 7th and 8th floor right next to Ikebukuro Station. It boasts a selection of over 1,600 books, manga, and magazines in both English and Japanese.

Sleeping Arrangements

When I said you sleep in the shelves, I wasn’t kidding. Each individual “bunk” is literally inside the shelves amongst the books. Whilst privacy is adequate with the attached curtain, there are also regular dormitory beds on the 7th floor if you want some peace and quiet.
