We stayed here for one night. It was an "okay" experience overall. The hostel is clean but the rooms were very small. The wifi did not work which was bit of an issue for us. The hostel is less than 5 mins away from the beach, which is really convenient.

I have just been back from one week in Tarifa at Meltin Pot. This is definitely one of the best, if not the best hostel I have stayed at. The staff is super attentive, and friendly, Otman (sorry if it is mispelled) made my friends and myself feel very welcomed, took us out to town to a nice restaurant -...

Overall bad experience with the rude receptionist, rather shooting than speaking. Bath is lacking basic privacy, which is not normal even for third world country. Definitely not going there again nor recommending it to anybody.

The rooms were clean, smaller than the one I chose but no complaints. Plenty of bathrooms and the terrace area was really nice with hammocks! Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast wasn't great but it was free, not a lot of options. Worth the price.

We had a private double room with shared bathroom. Everything was clean and nice, the location is perfect both for the beach and for the old town. Lovely atmosphere and great breakfast included! Definitely recommended

Rude staff, terrible rooms.. Do not stay here! Very unhelpful staff over email meant i had trouble finding the place and they weren't clear about rooms. No atmosphere either... There's much cheaper and better value hostels nearby, just book one of those on the night

This hostel is really nice. The staff are so friendly and nice and always ready to help. They even invited me to go partying with them after their shift. I stayed in a double bedroom, it was just perfect and I had my privacy. If anything the breakfast that was included was really bad. Only bread, butter and two types...

The hostel was nice, with a very helpful staff and a good location: not far from the city center or from the beach. Regarding the equipment and the staff it would deserve a five star, but we were a bit disappointed with the breakfast and the condition of the bathroom of our room. If you are looking for a cosy...
