Very uneasy location. Did not feel safe. Smells extremely stuffy I believe they have a severe plumbing It smells verus moist and moldy because of it. Beds very u comfortable. Doors to room do not lock.

Hidden away in Tangiers' medina, the place can be a little bit difficult to find. A guide will take you there for a small fee though. The hostel itself is lovely, staff was very friendly and helpful. Facilities are clean, though you may have to wait for a while to take a shower if the place is fully booked (wasn't the case for us). Has a nice roof terrace!

This hostel is right inside the medina and has a fun, unique atmosphere. The bar/terrace is great. The staff is also very friendly and welcoming and I felt very comfortable here. Small cubbies with locks are provided which put everyone at ease and feeling free to explore the city. Stay here.

Second stay at the melting pot. Great hub for meeting other travelers. Nice kitchen. Terrace is good. Bar with shisha. Breakfast good.

Good starting point, but not really true morocco. More like an international hub in tangier as a jumping off point to meet other travelers and get drunk and stoned. The top 2 floors shut down at 12 which kind of sucks because it's the kind of hostel you want to stay up late at. The staff is really helpful and know everything about the city, but they seem a little worn down from dealing with all of the tourists.

Nice staff (although they're not usually at reception, you can ring them to come down) and a good location, but my door didn't lock. Breakfast was very average, just one type of bread and coffee or tea. Rooms were clean and comfortable though, so can't complain too much!

I had a private room and although it had a secure lock on it, it was open when I returned each day. However I could not fault anything else about the hostel.

It was awesome there, since the location is in between of the congested homes, but the view from the terris was awesome. Staffs were very friendly and helping. It is worth to choose.

Great location in the Medina, about a 5-10 minute walk to shops and cafes. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the rooms and bathrooms are kept clean, and the bed was comfortable. I stayed in the eight bed room and there was enough space for luggage etc. Wifi was a bit funny at times, but it worked most of the time. There is a nice view of Tangier from the roof! I stayed one night but would have liked to stay longer!

Certainly a valid option in Tangier. Staff was friendly. It feels kind of noisy if you are over 30 ;). Nice rooftop terrace.

The hostel is perfect. One of the few hostels in Morocco with bed linen, clean bed linen. The rooms are clean and there is hot water all the time. The breakfast is simple but it is better than no breakfast. The view from the roof is amazing and perfect drinking morning coffee. The only thing is that there is only one toiler per floor and sometimes, esp in mornings, you have to wait a lot for it.

The Melting Pot in Tanger is such a nice place. It is at first hard to find, but it is a lovely location in the medina, close to all the 'big' places there. What I especially liked about the hostel was the communal feeling. In the night time, we all sat on the terrace overlooking the Tanger medina and shared some beers and some stories. In the morning, we all had a Moroccan breakfast together, sitting at a large table in the kitchen. It was a great place for a girl traveling on her own.

Literally 7minute walk from the port, so save your money and walk to the hostel. Good: breakfast, location, security facilities, terrace.Bad: wifi, pushy guides

Nice hostel. Great free breakfast and terrace. They can organise a walking tour if you have at least 3 people interested. It was okay but at the end of the walking tour our guide asked us for more money than was already agreed on.

Very clean and good beds. However, know that this is not a small hostel. Often quite noisy, and people everywhere all the time. Lockers were a nice touch. Wifi is often patchy. Location is right in the medina - look for the signs on the walls! The staff was very helpful!

Kitchen is great. Terrace is nice. Beds decent. Bigger lockers would be nice. I would stay again.
