caoji Book inn
Beautiful, unique hostelThe beds are behind the bookcases. Very different but beautiful concept. I loved it. The breakfast was very good. The location is great, I could walk around town. The staffs were very helpful, cheerful and friendly. Shared bathrooms were very spacy, very clean and well designed.
Really nice and unique hostelI really enjoyed my stay at Caoji Book Inn. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I stayed in the Standard 4-bed mixed room. While more expensive than the other options, in my mind it is the better option. Most of the other dorm options are actually more like capsules - they aren’t separate rooms. Instead, they’re essentially attached to the corridors. This means less privacy and more noise. The Standard 4-bed mixed room is its own room. They don’t really tell you this when booking. Otherwise, the facilities here are really good. There’s a kitchen and large communal area. There’s also separate outdoor areas. I never had to wait to use the bathroom or shower. Perhaps the main feature of this hostel are it’s books. There’s books everywhere! It’s a really nice feature. The location of the hostel is good, too. It’s about a 20 minute walk from the station. It’s nearby some places, though mostly Tainan is quite spread out. I’d definitely recommend staying here. My only concerns is that they should provide bigger towels and turn on the air conditioning throughout the day in more areas.

Lovely hostel surrounded by booksThis lovely hostel is renovated from a secondhand bookstore. You can still fell the embedded culture from a bookstore when you walk in. Comfortable sharing room with many books surrounded. Friendly staffs and great location!
Lovely little books storeOwner gave specific instructions to locate the place. It’s an easy 2mins walk from where THSR bus dropped me. Interior is nicely and thoughtful decorated to give privacy and quietness. More nice corners for reading. Worthy of a few days stay.

08-01-2018I'm traveling around Taiwan with a mate. Visit tainan from 1st August till the 3th. We stayed at the book hostel. It's a very nice interior with all the books around the room's. Super friendly and responsive staff. The girl from the desk was very helpful and told us where to go, even when we ask for a chess board she called a taxi and showed us where to go. Everything was clean and in good shape.
