I stayed only one night, but it was a very nice atmosphere, and you get to know people quite quickly...

Nice hostel near to the port and the old town of Tarifa. Breakfast was included. Nicest guy who worked there was definitly Loris.

The Melting Pot was an awesome place to stay! The moment I walked in, I was amazed with how relaxed and 'at home' I felt. Uday, one of the staff members, was playing Spanish guitar, quite well I might add, which immediately made me feel welcome in a laid back, relaxed environment. I was only meant to stay 2 nights but ended up staying 4 because I liked it so much. The staff were very helpful with anything that I needed, so I would recommend the Melting Pot for your stay in Tarifa.

After 1 hour of staying in this hostel, you feel like you've found a new family! Seriously, the Hostel-Crew is doing everything for you to make the most of your time in Tarifa, the breakfast is insane, with eggs, toasts, vegetables and stuff and the kitchen is also quite good equiped, so you can cook in the hostel every night, if you have to save some money! Thumbs up, definitely not my last stay in meltingpot!

Amazing location right by the beach, along with a beautiful rooftop view. The people coming through the hostel were super cool and the staff was INCREDIBLE! So helpful and so much fun. It's worth coming to Tarifa just to stay here.

The hostel is near to the beach as well as to the city centre of Tarifa. What I liked about this hostel is its atmosphere, the huge kitchen and the living room make it easy to connect to people and in the evenings you all get together there. The staff is very helpful and nice and you have a spectacular view to Marrocco from the roof top terrace. Recommendable.

My sister and I loved our stay at Melting Pot Hostel. Simple, clean, well located and well run. Now there are 2 toilets upstairs and 1 downstairs. The common room and the kitchen are a plus. Special thanks to Otmane and Houday for the good restaurants advice and helping us to catch our ferry to Tangiers (plus the great laughs).

Handy to the old city and the ferry to Morocco. Cosy, friendly, fun.

Great place to stay. The staff are very welcoming and know all the best places in town to visit. Jonny in particular is great at guitar and his cooking is absolutely top-notch. For kitesurfing you will probably need a car to transport all your gear to the beach as it is a bit of a walk to the kite-surfing spots.

Great location with less than 5 min walk to both center and beach. Great stuff, comfy beds, clean hostel and cool crowd. Only suggestion to improve is to change these sliding doors for bathroom and shower.

Lives up to its name; I met lots of cool travellers from around the world here. A good thing too, as there are many things that let this place down; broken showers, not enough toilets, no locks on some of them! Some locks on dorms did not work either. The wifi was useless. Bunk beds were very loose and unstable. Generally untidy and poorly kept. The staff were pleasant enough, but more interested in smoking, often abandoning the reception desk. I didn't feel overly safe or comfortable here.

It's was a great stay here. Just wanted to stay 2 days, but I doubled the time. I would even have stayed longer, but my flight was going. It's also near to the great beach and near to the old town of Tarifa. It's very easy to meet people there. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful.
