Situated in Shinjuku-ku’s French-styled quarter of Kagurazaka, Unplan is reinventing what a hostel can be. It’s equal parts stylish café, bar, co-working space and accommodation. The interior design is more like that of a trendy minimalist apartment than a hostel, with clean, pale-wood walls and pure white bedspreads. The hostel offers a number of different rooms including mixed and female-only dorms, private double rooms and larger private family-style rooms. Kagurazaka Station is less than a five-minute walk away, while you can get to the heart of Shinjuku in about 40 minutes by foot or 15 to 20 minutes by bike.
