Great for a capsule hotel; still a capsule hotel
Has a cool vibe, a nice selection of books, was very clean, and literally a minute's walk from Ikebukuro station, but opening my travel bag to sort through my things was a nightmare in that limited space and you're constantly aware of the presence of other people. Not sure if wifi's better in the common area because I just read books there without using the internet, but in my bed wifi got a little slow&glitchy a few times. You also have to pay about $5 for a towel and toiletries. Overall, if you're traveling really lightly with just a small backpack or something or are already set on staying in a capsule hotel, I'd highly recommend this place, but I'd advise against staying in capsule hotels in general.

Perfect stay
Perfect location right by main train station and the bus stop to the airport (40 minutes bus ride from the airport ), busy area so lots of restaurants and supermarket ! Very unique hostel and friendly staff ! Would definitely recommend

Amazing staff, reallllly cool themed hostel. Very quiet - as a library should be! It was great but the entire space is VERY narrow. I am 5ft7in at 145ilbs and it was hard for me to be comfortable here. Facilities and places to read were all awesome, but my bed was hard to get to (upper bunk). Cool book selection. Greatttt location - right near everything! Sad that you had to pay for a lot of amenities here. For the price I felt like it shouldve been included, but they just opened so I get it. They killed it though with their idea of a library hostel. It works perfectly. Super well done to the staff!

Heaven for book lovers
Aside from the weak AC (so hot at night I got waken up by the heat a couple times), everything is perfect! The book collection was great enough to last me one night, location is awesome (so many good places to shop and eat in the area), free earplugs worked perfectly, facilities are all new and available 24/7. Since i've already finished most of the books on the shelves,i wouldn't say i will definitely come back next time, but i would recommend this place to any book lover, you will loveee the experience!

Nice ambience
I really liked the ambience of the place. Between the bookshelves, the music, the couches and the lighting it was a really pleasant place to be. Many people seemed to be quietly reading or working on computers which seems like the goal of the hostel. Tge bookshelves look good and have a variety of titles across many genres. Bathrooms clean but first hostel I've been to in Japan where no toiletries were supplied (eg shampoo, body wash). One main issue for me: extremely noisy at night. I think I went to bed at 1130pm and it was noisy chute a could of hours after that. Not a party or anything but just bags being rolled around on the wooden floor and smashing into the metal stepladders (big echoing noise). Make sure you bring good earplugs or take the ones offered at reception. That's hostel life but it was bad enough for me to mention here. Bring your own beers too. A bit of variety at the bar but very expensive (mostly imports plus a japanese craft beer). Overall glad I stayed because it IS a nice place and they do the library thing well.
