“Cheapest accommodation at a good location”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

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 expect too much.

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 just around the corner, and it is also very near to the bus terminal. Definitely worth the value. I will go back to taiwanMex on my next trip to Taipei.

My husband and I had booked a few weeks in advance and said when we would be arriving but when we got there it was very disorganized and no one knew where we were supposed to go. Finally the owner came and took us I a different property and showed us a dorm but we had booked a double so we went to a different property and they made up a room for us. The guy at the first place was definitely the friendliest and if you did stay there then definitely stay there. The owner didnt really seem to care much. The room was okay but had a funny smell. The sheets were clean enough. The one good thing about this place is the location. We ended up moving somewhere else, and I would stay here again.

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 shock when I first reached Taiwanmex because there is no service counter and you have to call the owner to check in. Sometimes, you may have problem contacting him. Hence, sometimes it may be difficult to get things done. Then, since Taiwanmex is in a really old building (my guess is at least 40 years), the infrastructure may be a bit old. Hence, if you are fine with this, do consider staying here because the owner will constantly check your well-being when they see you. They will ask you, how is the room, how is taiwan etc....

Do stay here if you have a tight budget because you can spend the money that you can save for day trip or 2D1N trip in other Taiwan cities.

Room Tip: Request for Taiwanmex 3 if you have problem climbing staircase because it is the only hostel under T...

Full utilities, got PC with internet and wifi, public phone in room, water heater, TV and importantly few footstep to MRT station.

Do not expect too much, room was small, bed not so hygiene, lack in services, narrow walk way to the room. Better buy a local sim card and call them with cellphone for check in.

If you're really tight on budget, I suggest stay on this guest house.
We are 2 girls who, and they let us stay in a 4-bed room.
Good location, a minute walk to the nearest MRT Station & Family Mart.
Clean, with a TV, computer & free wifi. Iron and hair drier can be borrowed.
Owners are friendly & hospitable. If you have any questions or request, just send them an email, and you'll get a reply right away.
Clean restroom too!
