If you arrive at Taipei main station you can easily reach this place by walking distance via subway, exit thru R4 at Zhongshan undergound metro mall, you will see this place at a small lane not far away. Why I choose this hostel? The main reason is the location and its really cheap, only about NT350 for a dorm bed.... More

A very cheap place to stay in a central location within walking distance of Taipei main station. If you don't mind very small rooms, this place is actually pretty great. Has a free washer with laundry powder and place to hang your clothes dry, computer and wifi, water including hot water, tiny kitchen with fridge, hair dryer, lockers (bring your... More

I booked a bad of a two people female dome. The room was really small, without window. Place was not big enough for two people's luggage. It would be a budget choice if u share the room with your friend, but it's horrible to share with a stranger. In all, the place was small but clean. You can find many... More

Taiwanmex is conveniently located in the heart of Taipei which is a good place to base oneself in going around the city. The owners, Magos and Raul are accommodating and they see to it that their guests have a wonderful stay. Raul even went as far as fetching us in the Taipei Bus station in the middle of the night...

I stayed in Taiwanmex in 2010 with my family in its 6-bed mini house. We were very happy with its location, wifi, computer, TV and shower room, all ensuite in the 6 bed mini house. Just this month (Jan 2014), I went to Taipei with some friends and decided to use the 6 bed mini house facility in Taiwanmex again.... More

For the price this lace is perfect for backpackers. For people looking for cheap hotels but are a little icky about shared bathrooms and sharing rooms with strangers, this is not the place for you. When you get there there's a big sign at the gate. Then you get in and walk through like a small alley. You open their... More

The location was really easy to find. I stayed there for 2 nights in a 2 capsule beds room. The room was small but it is still ok for me. But the bed seriously needs to be cleaned because there are dust mites which made me uncomfortable. I recommend that girls avoid staying there alone. Overall is good and don't... More

I didn't expect this much from this hostel. Price is very reasonable and affordable, and a very good choice for solo backpackers if you don't mind staying in a mixed dormitory. The owner and staff are very helpful. The hostel has a kitchen, laundry facilities, hot showers, TV, air-conditioned room, anything a backpacker can ask for. The Metro Station is... More

You can stay here because it is really cheap, given its ideal location (walking distance from taipei station). The ensuite costs 1000TWD while a room w/o private bathroom costs 600TWD. It is at least half, or even one-third of the price of a mini-hotel in Taipei. However, since it is cheap, do lower down your expectation. I did have a... More
