A man is trapped in a room and needs to figure out a 13 character password in order to escape. He has the following clues

 

Exactly two of the below statements are lies.

The password is contained within this sentence.

The password is not in this hint.

The password is within only one of these statements.

At least one of the above statements is a lie.

 

 

Note: I just found this in one of my notebooks. Forgive me if it is too easy.

That is incorrect.

It does seem to fit, but is not the ultimate answer I had in mind when I created it.

I realized there were multiple answers, but I wanted to post it as is. I could refine it if I want, which I don't really feel like doing at the moment. Maybe next time.

Your answer is quite right and complete, Venay.Singh84.  This deserves to be 'The best answer'. 

With 5 statements that can be true or false there are 32 possibilities.  Most combinations are contradictory, but 4 are acceptable and without contradiction.  It are the four that you mentioned.  Unfortunately for the riddle this means that any thirteen characters, whether in the clues or not, will do.  In fact it means that there is no problem.  The man trapped in the room does not have to figure out a password because any thirteen characters are good.
