The room is so tiny, but the location is perfect, near MRT Zhongshan exit 1. Many shops, resto, and convenience store to take food and shopping. The staff is nice and warm, although need time to prepare our room when we check in.

I come back to Taiwanmex as it is fairly central, being close to Zhongshan MRT or a short walk to Taipei Main MRT station and the Bus station that goes to the airport. Magos and Raoul are very helpful and I do not expect too much for the price. Although some small hotels are becoming more competitive if you want...

The people here are so nice, and the price is very cheap, even it is in Taipei. Here is very clean, and Location is very convenient. It is near the Taipei main station and the MRT. But the air conditioner is not so good, it is not cold enough even in the room is tiny. And I think the bed...

Taiwanmex is in a convient location, near the MRT. The staff was very polite, and the rooms were very clean. The beds were rather short, and I am not that tall. Technically there is air conditioning and a fan, but it was very weak and I found myself hot at night. Worth the stay if it is for a short...

Have stayed here before but it has gone downhill ...so never again...worst mistake of my life. It was horrible. I got so hot I was dripping with sweat and could not sleep at all.

Firstly, this is not a guesthouse, it is a hostel dormitory. The rooms are tiny and the walls are very thin and so is the mattress so you will not get any sleep. Seriously, the walls are very thin. You can hear every sound in the room next door, You will find it impossible to sleep with the amount of...

Rooms are very small, but I was comfortable. Tall people might find beds a little short. The owner Raoul is relaxed and very friendly. He speaks chinese, english and spanish. Bathrooms were always clean. We stayed there during the first week of our trip. You can wash your clothes in the back and hang them to dry. It might take...

My room is so small, with 2 single beds just like doormitory. It is also old and tired looking. The bathroom & toilet is outside the room and you gotta share with others. It's also average about the location, you have to walk 5 minutes to the nearest mini market, underground market, etc. But it should be no problem for...

“I thought the dorm bed was value for money。”

“Request for Taiwanmex 3 if you have problem climbing staircase because it is the only hostel under Taiwanmex that has elevator. Get a simcard from the airport to call the owner to facilitate your check-in.”

“You can communicate with the owners in advance, maybe if you're lucky they'll let you stay in a bigger room with no extra charge, just like what we've experienced.”
