Nice location, interesting experience”
It's pretty cool to be given some quiet time to read books. Book lovers must try this hostel. Right next to Ikebukuro exit C8. I hope there can be some tables for writing as well. The lamp above the bed is a bit to hot and bright, can add shades.

Cozy place!”
I opted for this hostel for its 24-hour reception service. I arrived at the hostel after mid-night and the check-in process went smoothly. The hostel was not hard to find and was actually close to the shopping area and Ikebukuro Station. The place was really lovely. It's definitely like living in a dream for a book lover!

Such an amazing place to stay at! The atmosphere is great, the common area is connected to "bedrooms" which makes it feel very cozy. Despite the fact there are no washing machine facilities at the hotel, the nearest coin laundry place is just a few minute walk away. Definitely would recommend (:

A little too noisy”
I chose this for its excellent location travelling between Narita Airport and town. The noise level is high as the hostel seems to allow anyone (other than stayers) into the room, and they can stay up late until midnight and chat into the morning. Not recommended for foreigners who need a restful place to rest or catch a plane in the early morning.

Book Worms will appreciate”
The design is fantastic--beds tucked in among book shelves, printed pages lining bunk bed walls, comfortable dim lighting, etc. The book selection is limited, but available in multiple languages. The space does feel a bit crowded, but stays quiet. It got a bit warm at night, but guests are provided with small fans. There weren't lockers available for storage, only open spaces underneath the bunk beds. Go here for the experience of sleeping in a book store, but expect fairly standard hostel conditions.

as a book lover, this place was a dream come true. I always love being surrounded by book, so Book and Bed Tokyo is a perfect place to stay. Their location also a big plus, so close to the station with a lot of places to eat, shopping or just wondering around. Love, love, love this place.

Poorly priced for a hostel.”
This place is gorgeous but for what you pay, towels and basic necessities should not be an up charge. Beds were small and tough to get into, but the vibe / ambiance was wonderful. Pay a charge to sit and read but don’t sleep here—it’s overpriced.

Looks great but is no good if you want sleep”
Fantastic concept, great location and good amenities but...the bed was very uncomfortable indeed, and there was loud music playing until midnight...impossible to sleep, made worse by people coming and going all night and the loud door shutting! I liked the books, I liked the beer....but the bed bit was sadly lacking.

Despite some negative reviews about the place, I enjoyed my stay here! The toilets and showering facilities were really clean. It is located conveniently near the station, right in the heart of Ikebukuro with plenty of food options available. Though the space is a little cramped, it was rather cosy and I absolutely loved the ambience when the sun goes down. Definitely worth a return visit! :)

A cool experience you need to try at least oncr”
This was a fun experience. I had seen book and bed on Facebook for months and had always wanted to try it. My suggestion would be to make sure you get ear plugs as the shelf beds tend to amplify snoring. But all in all, it was such a cool little place, near so many subway and train lines

great location, fun place to sleep in ”
Book and bed is a beautiful hostel with a fun concept. It can get stuffy within the cubicles when going to bed (even during winter), but mini USB fans are provided. There are people lounging around the common areas reading books throughout the day. As a book lover, I enjoyed my stay and flipping through the wide variety of books. Will definitely stay here again if I travel to Tokyo again as a lone traveller.

Very Unique....to visit”
Have not seen hostel like this in my life, staff was so friendly. But.....I am unable to this place recommend this for long stay. * too much movement (noise outside my bed space, because they do rent out the place for day time reading. * unlike the old hostel i stayed, they had sliding thin doors in case you needed some privacy and the space itself was enclosed (sort of) book and bed on the other hand, the bed space had only a curtain, and light and noise does leak into the space alot. conclusion, good for short stay, must visit once in life, then moved on. cheers

Fascinated”
I stayed there 3 nights (6-8 Dec. 2017) and wanna say I love this the most of many things I choose to do in my Tokyo's solo trip :D Such a very NICE place, cool, unique, comfortable, cleanliness, friendly staff and good location. If you travel in Tokyo by JR or Tokyo's subway, you can get to 1st floor of the building in 10 step from Ikebukuro station, C8 exit (and I also saw the bus stop in front of this building too) then you can ride up to 8th floor to the hostel' front that you will meet the fascinating and charming things, maybe you will love there at the first sight like me! 7th and 8th floor are the area of Book And Bed, fitting and good, and the view from the high is nice all day and night. Recommended+++ Have a book day Have a book night

Too noisy and no security ”
I was a solo traveler. Could not sleep because noise travels so much. Was not in the bookshelves, in a side area that has no space within the bunk or outside of it to unpack suitecase. Mostly, there was no locker in my bunk and they wouldn’t give me space to lock valuables. Instead I was told to give it to the front desk every time I left and they would lock it. However I realized they were not actually locking it, just putting it under the desk and not always manning the desk. That made it too stressful to enjoy. Also, the bookcase space is really cool but they let the public have access to it during the day so you have random public walking through and looking in your bunks during the day. Again, too stressful with my belongings. The location was very convenient though
