Toy Warehouse Renovated into a Hostel

ものづくりの街に溶け込む、クラフト感満載のゲストハウス「Nui.」

Only three minutes by foot from Kuramae Station on the Toei Asakusa line in Tokyo, you will find the guest house called Nui. Nui. HOSTEL & BAR LOUNGE (referred to as Nui.) has a cafe and bar on the first floor, and its location right by Kuramae Station, conveniently located one stop away from Asakusa Station, make it a perfect base for touring around.

Kuramae is an area that has been known as a manufacturing town since the Edo period. Nui. was reconstructed in 2012 after fully renovating a former toy company's warehouse. The exterior of the building still has traces of its time as a warehouse.

Backpackers' Japan Co., Ltd. operates under the concept of "creating a place where people can go beyond all borders to support each other." With this motto in mind, the company has made many guest houses where people can rely on each other comfortably. Nui. happens to be their second branch.

Let us introduce you to this lovely guest house that allows you to imagine the creators within the town of manufacturers.

Five Types of Rooms - Including Private Rooms with a River View!

The guest house is separated into five types of rooms. There is the women's only dorm, gender-neutral dorm, twin room, double room, and the river view double room.

Hand-Made Bunk Bed (Twin Room / Dormitories)
