    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.

    It has free coffee machine!! As the name suggests, if you are a nerd like me who likes to read, study, or work, this is the BEST hostel you could find in Taiwan. People here are super nice too.

    Amazing ambiance—perfect place for someone looking for a quiet and relaxed spot. Good location in the city. Also, they provide everything you’d need for amenities. My favorite hostel in Taiwan, and I’ve had many a good hostel!

    Awesome place for a quiet stay in Tainan. The roof top terrace is particularly relaxing, however it is on the flight path to the airport and you can hear many planes fly over during the evening.

    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!

    Amazing stay at Caoji. The staff is wonderful and the facilities are always kept clean. I appreciate all the details and extras like a basket for your toiletries, potpourri for the pod, MUJI face wash free to use and eco-friendly shampoos and bodywash. Location is great- close to weekend street crafts market and also super close to both a Bao shop and a noodle shop that will both change your life. Department Store Hayashi is also just a few blocks. Highly recommended for Tainan.

    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! :)

    Caoji is a fabulous hostel for anyone looking for a relaxing retreat. You don't need to worry about a thing here as everything here is immaculate. The beds are spacious and comfy, the bathrooms are large and clean, and obviously there's so many books it would take years to read them all. Furthermore, the kitchen and living area is cosy with a great view of the park across the road. There's a little rooftop for you to relax on too. Across the road is the Confucious Temple. Perfect place to stay.

    A little more expensive than other hostels, however with that price comes a new and modern building with spacious beds and friendly staff. There is also a common area where you can meet other people. Location is also nice, there are lots of restaurants and some museums nearby. The Hostel is quite far away from the old forts but nothing a small bussride can't fix
