This hostel is a perfect place for you who love to read books. It was designed by Japanese firm Suppose Design Office based on an unusual but interesting concept. With over 1,700 titles of books and comics available to read, you won’t have an easy-to-sleep experience but you will have an experience of falling asleep while reading your favorite book. More description by Book and Bed:

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 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”.
