Great 4 nights at Book and Bed
Our stay at Book and Bed was excellent!! It’s in a great central area near Shinjuku, but note it is in the “red light district” which I don’t think was a bad thing because there was a bit of nightlife! The staff were super friendly and helpful! The bathrooms were clean and I never had a problem with queues or anything. I stayed in a comfort single and it’s was plenty of space for a single person. The mattresses were quite thin which was a little tough and because you’re sleeping in a plywood box with a curtain you can hear a lot, so if you’re a light sleeper it may not be ideal. The internet was fast, but there wasn’t a kitchen or anything that you could really use. Overall it was a great stay and I really enjoyed the experience of Book and Bed!

Good place but uncomfortable sleep!
Lovely staff, incredibly helpful and ready to teach us a few new Japanese words every day, also loved being so close to Shinjuku Station and Shinjuku's red light district (great night life but still felt safe) Beds were very hard, constantly waking up. And if you get a bed out in the main area it can be a little annoying as there are always people sitting facing where you sleep but was always very quiet (not so good if you are in a group or want to chat though) The standard single is plenty big enough to sleep in, I wouldn't bother with the comfort single, except that they seem to be positioned a little away from the main area. Also no fridge, kitchen etc.

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.

Great place
I loved this place and it was much quieter and more comfortable than I expected. No queuing for showers, very clean, comfy futon, so quiet I didn’t need the ear plugs. It’s slightly hard to find as it’s in an area where many buildings look the same but I would definitely go back.
