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.


You feel welcomed imediately in this hostel. The athmosphere, the staff and the location is awesome! Thank you so much for a good time there even if I was travelling by myself!


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.
