    The atmosphere was unique and very nice. Location was also superb. Not the best for light sleepers since the common area shares the same space as the sleeping area, but if some light noise is acceptable, it's a great place

    Staying at Book and Bed is a book lover’s dream! The place is beautiful, comfortable, and even has an espresso bar! The staff is also incredibly friendly and helpful. If I ever find myself in Shinjuku again, I’ll definitely be staying here!

    We already miss our hotel

    I had stayed in Book and Bed Ikebokuro before and I already loved it. This time I’ve returned with my girlfriend and we booked a double room. We were surprised that the room has high ceiling and an amazing view of Shinjuku through two glass walls. It’s very comfortable to sleep in, and even with just one curtain to block you from the common area, we felt pretty private inside. The staff were as great and helpful as last time. The books and magazines had many great collections! The only thing I would hope it to be improved is that some fellow travelers have their cases stuffed in the hallway. It’s not very nice and for safety reasons the staff should reinforce it. Also some travelers didn’t understand the importance of keeping quiet, although the hotel kindly provides earplugs. It’s a great place to stay not just for budget reason. I would recommend this place to any young ones traveling to Tokyo.

    The hostel is beautifully quiet and it’s quiet. My friend and I stayed in the superior room. The room got rather cold in the middle of the night. Good thing was the room came with an electric blanket and a tiny radiator.

    Really cool concept, loved the layout and the books. Everyone was respectful in the space. Very good location! The bed mattress are very loud when you’re moving around so you can hear you neighbor tossing in bed even with ear plugs in. The knocks from moving around the space you can hear as well due to the plywood. But I say come to this place to stay! They have a disco ball!!

  • 6.0.Good

    Convenient location, friendly staff. But I think the common/room area needs better ventilation. The temperature feels ok in common area, but the room can get very stuffy and warm. However, the moment you walk into the bathroom, it's way too cold. Someone near my room had cold/flu when I arrive. She coughed all night, and I caught cold the next day. I stayed for 3 days, and there's way more people coughing and sneezing when I leave than when I arrive. Maybe it's just my bad luck, but I really think more ventilation in common/room area would help.
