Good stay at hostel. No real problems during my stay. Location is inside the old medina but there will be signs pointing you to the right direction. Beware of people outside near the hostel trying to rip off foreigners. Ignore the people telling you how to get there or children following you as they are conditioned pester one for money. Day time staff were really nice, helpful, and considerate but night staff can be a bit rude. Overall, good value for what you get.
Was easier to find than we thought despite the location as there are loads of signs up for it in the old city, so we didn't have to rely on any of the local "guides". Good atmosphere, facilities were great, is real "old style" decor, and a lovely roof terrace. And great breakfasts! If you are booking though, try to avoid getting the rooms on the ground floor as they are right beside reception and if the phone rings or if anyone is checking in/out early in the morning, you hear *everything*...
Though all the other members of staff were great when we checked in the particular man on the desk did his best to make our Moroccan friends who we were travelling with feel as uncomfortable as possible, treating them wildly differently to the English members of the group. On balance though other than that our stay was really good here

The staff were super helpful, providing all the information you could need in Tangier. Good location within the Medina, lockers in the rooms, kitchen available and the standard Moroccan breakfast of pancakes with Jam, Tea & Coffee . Not all that modern and the beds were pretty squeaky but the pluses already mentioned outweighed this.
It was nice to arrive at a hostel where the staff offered an introduction, showed us a map etc. No other hostels in Morocco had quite got the hang of this. Dorms are very basic but satisfactory. 5 minute walk down the hill to the ferry port where ferries go to tarifa. Nice rooftop terrace! Wifi a bit temperamental. Overall would recommend this hostel!
This is a nice hostel, with a beautiful terrace and relaxed atmosphere. People from the staff were kind and helpful.
Everything was great. The staff was very nice and extremely helpful, the breakfast was delicious and the hostel is beautiful, homey and creates a great atmosphere to meet people. I loved my stay at the melting pot and would most deffenitly stay there again if I were to go back to Tangier
Very nice hostel quality/price! Really recommended. Very well located and the staff is always willing to help you with everything!

Very nice Hostel with friendly staff and a good atmosphere.
Salaam alekoum! Once again, I really enjoyed this hostel in the medina. There is always a good vibe in this hostel and it is in great part due to the awesome staff of the Melting Pot. The only recommendation I would have to make is to look at the possibility of replacing some of the older mattresses. Beslama ! Amagi Patrick
Very backpackerish (in a good way), roof terrace was great and mint tea readily available. Location wise is a bit tricky to find but once you do it becomes easy and it is basically on the edge of the Medina.
I've stayed here twice now and I'm a fan. It's a really good meeting place, right in the medina. The staff are welcoming, the place is clean and there's a lovely roof terrace. The downside for me was the mattresses which are poor. But I'd still stay there again.
Very helpful staff, thanks. Enjoyed the location. Nice to have breakfast included.

The Hostel has a great location in the Medina, the main attraction in Tangier. I think it could be a little more enlightened, but the atmosphere was OK and the breakfast was great too! Good food in Morocco.
The hostel was fairly easy to find due to the signs in the medina. My bed was comfortable and the place was quiet enough to get some good sleep! I think that breakfast could be improved by a little extra choice, but otherwise, I have no complaints
Pretty much everything was great. The rooms are so cleverly integrated into a traditional Moroccan style riad with cool decor. Great free breakfast and plenty of hot water, big fully-equipped kitchen and nowhere near as cold as other hostels in Morocco at this time of year. Only downside was that there was no soap in any of the bathrooms.
The Melting Pot was a great choice for us in Tangiers. The staff was immediately friendly and extremely helpful. They gave us excellent recommendations for places to visit within Tangiers and throughout Morocco, and did everything that they could to make us feel welcome.
Overall great stay with really helpful staff and a good atmosphere. 1 toilet/shower per floor is probably not enough if it's not as empty as when we stayed!
We had such a fun time at this hostel and in tangier! The hostel was great, only issue being that it is right in the medina and we were hounded by people trying to "help" any time we walked outside
A nice haven inside the medina. A little difficult to find especially when being hassled by (fake) 'guides'. Great roof top terrace. Large well equipped kitchen. Really cold at night despite blankets given. Wifi patchy. Simple breakfast (roti bread & tea). Friendly & helpful staff. 1 shower/toilet per floor. No security other than locked front door & wooden locked boxes in room.
