    Lovely clean hostel for the book lovers, close to a lot of museums and temples (most of these sites are closed on Mondays so plan accordingly), staff are super friendly and helpful. There are a lot of lovely food places around. 10/10 would recommend.

    I have enjoyed my stay in Tainan. The location is great and the books all around the hostel bring a nice atmosphere. The staff is really helpful and friendly. Breakfast is included and there is a social atmosphere in the common areas and at the rooftop!

    Unique little gem in Tainan, beautifully authentically itself - an old book store. Peaceful, respectful and intelligent. Comfortable, Clean and cosy. A hostel to pamper oneself during our travels.

    Super friendly and experienced staff! Love all the extra amenities like shower bag, ear plugs, comfy flip flops, face wash, extra hygienic accessories in the bath room that you don’t see elsewhere. The atmosphere in the public area is one of a kind with thousands of books, didn’t see any books in English tho:( Will definitely stay here on my future visits to Tainan.

    My stay at this hostel was great. The staff were really friendly. I stayed in the standard 4-bed mixed dorm. I’d recommend booking this type rather than the other options. It’s about a 20 minute walk from the station, though the hostel is nearby many places. I’d definitely recommend staying at Caoji Book Inn. It’s such a unique hostel!

    LOVED my stay at Caoji Book Inn! I felt so welcomed & at home the instant I checked in. The hostel employees were all so pleasant, friendly, & super helpful. The location is very central & in a convenient location--I was essentially able to walk everywhere. I appreciated the hostel decor & the concept of it was very unique. The entire hostel was spotless, especially the bathrooms. This is the first hostel on my RTW trip that offered conditioner in their showers--it's the little things! :)

    A lovely hostel with friendly staff and great communal areas - a fairly large kitchen and dining/lounge space and bathrooms on each floor (all very clean too). The beds are also quite spacious with room to hang items and store some items within bed spaces themselves. Public transport isn’t great within the city itself however the bus stops around the hostel can still get you to a fair few places (though sometimes a taxi is just easier).
