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!

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

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.

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.

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.

because of construction going on as of jan '15 as you exit the port you go left on mohammed IV and turn right after the construction fence ends and enter the first city gate and then right again.after you should ask for directions or find the hotel continental which is on route.there are people wanting to take you to the hostel for a tip,3-5 euros,which is ok if you're tired or lost.hostel is cold and internet runs slowly on pcs but there's wifi.staff speak good english and breakfast is good.

Great location right in the heart of the Medina. the toilets could be nicer, but they're all right. Outlets next to beds. The doors to the bedrooms don't close all the way. There's a nice rooftop with nice views of the Medina and the sea. Simple breakfast. There's 40 dirham (~4 euro) shisha. Watch out for people trying to lead you here and expecting a tip. It's close to the Hotel Continental, so if you need to take a taxi here, use that as a landmark.

I enjoyed my stay. The hostel is easily found amongst the myriad doors in the ancient medina. By using the Hotel Continental (beach) as a landmark, I was able to reach the destination with ease. The staff is welcoming and provided a friendly and safe environment. The hostel served as a tranquil zone for those a bit unfamiliar with the rest of Tangier. The rooftop lounge area is nice and the bedrooms comfortable. The bathrooms were all clean and the shower had no hesitation providing hot water.
