Tokyo’s Best Hostel Lets You Have A Sleepover In A Bookstore

(********************************************) Best Hostel Lets You Have A Sleepover In A Bookstore

When you are backpacking, there is nothing quite as pleasant as tucking in ancient and curling up with a book on your hostel. And that is doubly true at Tokyo’s Book and Bed hostel, a location made to look and feel just like sleeping within an old bookstore to the evening.

Hostels tend to be one of a few things. So you’ve got to give props to Book and Bed, the self-described “accommodation bookshop,” for locating a distinct aesthetic. It’s full of lined shelves, cozy nooks, and comfortable reading lights, and of course thousands of books that guests can peruse.

Not only is it filled with over 1,700 Japanese and English books, curated by Shibuya Publishing & Booksellers, the hostel bunks themselves are built right into the bookshelves, with each distinct nook outfitted with another mattress, light, and power strip.

You can’t purchase the books, sadly, but you may read them to your heart’s content, so long as you’re prepared to lease a bunk for the night. Prices ranged for around $29 for a “compact” bookshelf to around $37 for a “standard,” which is actually pretty great for a hostel located in one of the priciest cities on Earth.

If you’re a librophile seeking to go to Tokyo, you can reserve a room at the Book and Bed website here.
