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!

Cross the road and you are on the beach! Amazing! Perfect for few days of relaxing. Great communal area to meet fellow travellers. Staff were a bit average. No lockers in rooms.

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.
