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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

“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.”
