Sleep Among the Shelves of a Bookstore at this Tokyo Hostel

At Book and Bed Tokyo, a bookstore/hostel hybrid opened in the bustling Ikebukuro neighborhood, guests sleep in bunks and capsules embedded into bookshelves.

Bookstore Hostel

Tokyo Themed Hostel

Designed by Makoto Tanijiri and Ai Yoshida from Suppose Design Office, the bookstore-themed hostel is more about the experience it offers rather than the amenities.

Bed Behind the Bookshelf

Washing Space

Instead of down duvets, fluffy pillows, and private bathrooms, the facility breaks the mold with affordable bookshelf-beds and a collection of 1,700 books curated by Shibuya Publishing & Booksellers.

Book and Bed

Intended for both daytime and overnight stays, the sleeping shelves are complete with reading light and come in two sizes: Standard (205 x 129) and Compact (205 x 85 cm). Additionally, visitors are provided with shared toilet and bathroom, free Wi-Fi, as well as a lobby lounge furnished with couches.
