Sleep surrounded by books at this fantastic bookshop-themed hostel in Tokyo.

A small bookshop-themed hostel where guests sleep in snug little cubbies hidden behind library shelves laden with books.

There's nothing we love more than cozying up in bed with a good book. Well, in this case, thousands of books. Just, Heaven for bookworms!

Book and Bed Tokyo is a unique and innovative accommodation concept in Tokyo, Japan, with multiple branches throughout the city. These hostels were often praised for its quirky and creative design, comfortable sleeping spaces, and the tranquil ambiance it offers to visitors.

Book and Bed Tokyo offers a bookshop-themed accommodation, combining the experience of staying in a bookstore with the comfort of a cozy sleeping space.

Instead of traditional hotel rooms, Book and Bed Tokyo offers compact sleeping spaces built into bookshelves, often referred to as "bookshelf beds", small, comfortable sleeping nooks surrounded by books. While the sleeping spaces are compact, they are designed to provide a comfortable stay. 

You will have the feeling of sleeping in a library or bookshop! You can curl up with a book before bed, creating a relaxing and immersive environment for reading enthusiasts. 

It's important to note that Book and Bed Tokyo's accommodations are not typical private rooms, and the spaces might not be ideal for guests seeking a more traditional hotel experience with larger living quarters. However, for book enthusiasts and those looking for a quirky and memorable stay, it can be an excellent choice.

In addition to the sleeping spaces, Book and Bed Tokyo usually has communal areas like reading lounges or cozy corners for guests to relax and socialize. 

This affordable hostel offers a library with an extensive collection of books in various genres and languages featuring over 3,000 reading materials in English and Japanese. Books aren’t sold, though, they’re just there for the enjoyment of hostel guests. Guests are encouraged to browse the shelves, read, and unwind amidst the literary atmosphere.

Kid Friendly: Children over six are welcome with adults.

This unique experience is designed for book lovers and travelers looking for a cozy and literary-inspired experience.
