Q Stay and lounge’s Response to the Covid-19 crisis

Due to a significant drop in inbound tourism in the past several months, the hostel and its café Q Cafe, are currently struggling to attract guests.

To stay connected with travelers across the world, however, Q Stay and lounge is currently offering a special campaign through which readers can book a night with a discount of up to 54% off, breakfast included. Guests can choose between dormitory or private rooms. The “See You Soon” campaign offers discounted accommodation vouchers, which can be “purchased now and used to book a stay anytime in 2020.” If you’re planning a trip to Japan later in the year, this campaign can help you and Q Stay and lounge equally. 

In addition to their accommodation vouchers, readers located in Ueno can place an order via Uber Eats to get any item on the Q Cafe menu delivered to their homes or offices.

As of June, Q Stay and lounge started offering weekly, monthly, and full dormitory rental plans available for booking through July 31. These limited-time plans are designed to lend support to those whose life and routine have been affected by the spread of the coronavirus, perfect for those looking to avoid a long commute or to work in a distraction-free location.

To all guests: Virus-prevention measures, such as cleaning, disinfecting, and ventilation of the hostel, as well as staff handwashing and mask use, are strictly adhered to.
