The Melting Pot is definitely a great hostel experience, from the owner personally welcoming us, to the atmosphere provided. This place is also close to the beach and close enought to the city center for easy access. The one thing that could improve slightly is cleanliness especially in the bathrooms but this is to be expected especially in shared dorms with 10 people. Other than that awesome stay, would stay here again !

Some of the staff spoke neither English or Spanish, only French which made communication a little hard. It's far from the center, only worth if all you want to do is go to the beach, otherwise, stay somewhere nearer everything.

We were travelling with my boyfriend and friend. Doubleroom was small and all the beds were in bad condition, but nevertheless we really enjoyed the hostel. Terrace is open 8 am to 12 pm which is cool, 'cause you need a place to hang out and get to know other travellers. Door is locked at nights, but there is staff 24/7 to open it for you. Atmosphere was awesome, we got to know so many people! We recommend hostel for a couple/friends who want to get to know people and enjoy the beach.

The Melting Pot hostel is very close to the beach, but it is a kilometre or so from the most popular part of the beach, and it is about 2 kilometres from the historical town centre. That said, it is a good hostel to stay in. It has large outdoor area to relax in, the rooms are not overcrowded, and there is an adequate kitchen.

My first hostel experience and it was perfect! The Melting Pot's location is great, facilities were more than good enough for me and the crowning jewel was the atmosphere. People from all around the world enjoying life on the patio. Thank you for a great two nights!

I loved this hostel. Chill atmosphere and it was right on the beach. Great place to meet other travelers. Breakfast is served and there are bar crawls that take place so you learn where to hang out in the evenings. The best located hostel I stayed at during my trip throughout Spain this summer.

The location close to the beach ist nice but you need to have no problems with traffic noises... from both sides of the hostels are main roads and with the head all time the windows are open. The safety is kinda given, but you need to buy a chain for you locker. afterwards you can keep it. The locker are really small. You can put main things in it. Some of the stuff did not really speak english or spanish and haven´t been able to give you good and useful information.

Wonderful location. The one computer that is available for clients is extremely slow, that could be looked at. Also the cleanliness fo the bathrooms should be reconsidered, it feels scabby.

Spacious dorms, good outside area, friendly and helpful staff, not for from town, near to beach. Nothing outstanding, but nothing to fault. I was only there one night in transit. Would have no hesitation in staying there again.

Is it normal for everything in a hostel to close at midnight? I get the terrace and kitchen areas, but we were even sitting in a couple chairs near the reception desk and we were asked to move for cleaning. Otherwise a good place to stay, and they have a pub crawl and walking tour available which were very nice.

We were in the basement. The beds were old and rickety, there was mold all over the bathroom walls and the stinch from mildew and mold was overwhelming. Really the most disgusting hostel I have ever set foot in.
