Very nice building with lots of character, also felt like a really sociable hostel, breakfast was help yourself around one large table, so chatting at breafast was easy. Our room was lovely, well decortated and very clean, but I thought it was small and lacking facilities considering the price (the most expensive we paid on our holiday), having said that it is a touristy area, and I think in comparision to others it is a similar price, for a location, a lovely hostel with friendly staff.
Great place. The double room with balcony was just great.
positives - check in reception was friendly and really great. shower was nice and hot. location was great. negatives - wifi didn't work well. one of the guys working at the hostel trying to take advantage of the girls, making her feel really insecure and ended up leaving early.
Cool hostel with really chilled out atmosphere and staff, if you are in tarifa you must stay at this hostel!
Great hostel for the atmosphere, small and personal. Everyone starts drinking in the evening then head to town to continue the night. Close to the beach also.
Unusual (in a good way) hostel, feels like a friendly home, and the cheap mojitos every evening were a nice touch! The terrace is amazing, and for a birder like me, offers the chance to watch bee-eaters migrating overhead! Only downside for me was the people returning at 3.30 in the morning talking at full volume as they came in. Can't blame the hostel for that though!
The atmosphere in the hostel due to the people who stayed there at the same time as i did was amazing. Although i didn't like the fact that they would close the terrace at 11 pm and then the living room at 12 so basically we had to leave or go to sleep. Even when we went back to the room and started a quiet conversation a guy from the reception would stick his head in the room and shuh us, sometimes i felt like a 5 yr old.

i was made feel very welcome, staff is nice and helpful! hostel is relaxed and there is everything you need, location is awesome, and tarifa is great! small downside sometimes had to wait for bathroom but not too bad. anyway i had a nice stay so thankyou!
The hostel is really good, if you want to go to bed early it is maybe a bit to noisy.
expensive given Tarifa is just a small town - after midnight living room area is closed and no socialising possible.
breakfast was pretty sparse, but overall a good deal. close to the town and the beach, and the staff will take care of ferry reservations if you want to go to morocco.
Had an enjoyable stay here. Staff is friendly and will help you with anything you need. Good facilities, though it would not hurt to have a few extra showers/toilets. Simple breakfast of toast and coffee but the simple things in life are the best. Definitely recommended.
The only one "negative" what I could say is that there is just one toilet and bathroom in one for 8 people. Everything else was perfect.
This Hostel is an excellent choice to stay at. The Staff are very nice. They take care at looking after you. I really can not speak highly enough of them. The Kitchen is excellent it even has a dishwasher. I really like the mojito hour. That is a good way to start the evening. I had a wonderful experience at this hostel. The Terrace has a good view of Africa when it is clear in the evening just before sunset.
Great place to stay! We enjoyed our stay! Big rooms, big terraces, fliendly People. The staff made us feel home. The Boy on saturdaymorning wasnt as friendly as the others, but it was ok.
Very helpful staff! Amazing location: close to historical center, beach and bus station.
Great staff and atmosphere, free breakfast, close to the beach, you can print your boarding passes for free, they have a terrace on the roof where you can sunbathe...
The staff was wonderful, helpful and very friendly. The type of people who stayed at this hostel were magnificent. Great experience, awesome place to stay and beautiful town, if it weren't for all that crazy wind.
We loved the melting Pot in tarifa! We had a great Time and stayed four instead of only One Night! Met great People and the Hostel has got everything you Need and want! The Day staff is lovely too and a great help when booking classes or when just getting around! The Night staff is really rude though! He threatened me to sleep on the Beach if I would "laugh" once more! And I was so quite that I didnt Even Hear myself! Not very cool behavior for Hostel staff! Loved it though and will come back!
Great hostel, with a terrace on the roof :D the staff is very nice and helpfull!
