Hostels are good places to stay in and mingle with people on the road. What if you get to stay in one with a book store? There’s one in Kyoto, opening this month.
Tune Stay Kyoto is the latest hostel in the Piece brand, their fourth in Kyoto. Located just one block from Kyoto Station, the hostel had a strong theme of local Kyoto. It also features two specialties: a book store with a strong emphasis on Kyoto-based books, and a cafe/bar. This hostel is also designed to have more hotel-like rooms with bunk beds, instead of the usual hostel-style dormitories.
The management enlists the help of Book & Beer and Kyoto Beer Lab. Book & Beer (B&B in-short) is based in Shimokitasawa, Tokyo, and well known for combining book stores with other functions, in their case with a beer bar. And Kyoto Beer Lab is well known for running a beer brewery and bar in Kyoto.
Tune Stay Kyoto is now available for bookings on major international and Japanese booking sites.
