Adjacent to Shimokitazawa's Reload complex is the youthful, minimalist Mustard Hotel, which opened its first property in Shibuya Bridge in 2018. Designed by architect Shin Ohori, this second property features a clean, modern aesthetic with plenty of greenery and seating areas for people to socialise.
The hotel offers 60 rooms ranging from semi-double bunk beds to deluxe abodes with spacious outdoor balconies. All rooms come with a record player. To enjoy that, just pick up a vinyl from the pop-up shop at the hotel lobby; you can rent records for free during your stay.
The first floor of the hotel features an outpost of Sidewalk Coffee Roasters and Kurage shochu bar. The former even has an in-house roaster, so you can purchase freshly roasted beans as well as hot-off-the-oven bagels. Kurage, on the other hand, offers a selection of 40 distilled liquors including shochu and awamori (an Okinawan spirit made from long grain rice).
