Book and Bed
One of the city’s more novel hostel options, Book and Bed, located in the bustling hub of Ikebukuro, allows book-loving guests to live out their ultimate fantasy: sleeping inside a bookshelf. The hostel owners wanted to help travellers get over jet lag and overstimulation by cramming every inch of their hostel with books to calm the mind and soothe frayed nerves. Almost like the more sophisticated version of a manga café combined with a capsule hotel, Book and Bed’s sleeping arrangements are snug and private. Prices vary depending on room and availability.
