The concept is really nice, and the atmosphere is relaxing. You have at your disposal a ton of books to read in different languages. The location is also nice, in the center, even though I found it a bit difficult to find as it not...More

Stayed at Book and Bed Ikebukuro for one night. The design is nice and gimmicky. However, the so-call “hostel” was not comfortable - the bed was bad (and you have to make your own bed), the amenities were not provided, super noisy at 7am... Can...More

What to say about this hostel? I loved it! The beds are in bookshelves, there are books everywhere, even on the ceiling. In the common area there is a big sofa with pillows, very comfortable and cosy, perfect to spend some time reading. The stuff...More

About
Description
Book And Bed is "an accommodation bookshop" The perfect setting for a good nights sleep is something you will not find here.There are no comfortable mattresses, fluffy pillows nor lightweight and warm More down duvets. What we do offer is an experience while reading a book (or comic book). An experience shared by everyone at least once : the blissful "instant of falling asleep". It is already 2 am but you think just a little more... with heavy drooping eye lids you continue reading only to realize you have fallen asleep. Our concept is thus a readers haven - an accommodation bookshop. (Books aren’t sold, though. It’s just an expression.) Dozing off obliviously during your treasured pasttime is the finest "moment of sleep", don't you agree? With books as our central theme, we decided to create a hostel offering the greatest "moment of sleep". Less

I stayed at the Tokyo branch and they only had rentals. Assuming it's the same for Kyoto.

Hi, I have queried this before, and their answer is that their beds are all for single person, it's not allowed to stay 2 people together in one bed. They're very prompt in answering queries via email btw :)

They have space to store luggage but it can get tricky to open yours due to tight space in the corridors. The hostel itself is pretty much one corridor sectioned apart, and you sleep in capsule like arrangement so your group... More
