BOOK AND BED TOKYO
Managed by the boutique real estate company R-STORE, this hostel was created as an “accommodation bookshop.”
Book and Bed Tokyo is a new style of hostel targeting both overseas and domestic travelers. Located only a minute’s walk from Ikebukuro Station’s West Exit, the hostel is founded on a “bookstore accommodation” concept: almost all of us has the experience of reading late into the night, our eyelids growing heavier, until suddenly we wake up to morning sunlight. It’s times like these this hostel has in mind, offering guests the perfect joy of that instant you fall into slumber.
With design by Makoto Tanijiri and Ai Yoshida’s Suppose Design Office and book selection by Shibuya Publishing & Booksellers, the hostel has also attracted international attention as a part of new cultural trends in Tokyo and was featured in major world newspapers like The Guardian and The Independent. To top it off, a night’s stay is quite reasonably priced, starting from 3,500 JPY.
