I have stayed in hostels all over Spain and Portugal in this price range. Most of the hostels description is correct EXCEPT...the mattresses in the 6 bed room we stayed in are the worse in all the hostels I have stayed in 2 months of travel. You can feel the springs and everyone in the room had the same complaint.... More

This hostel was by far one of the better hostels I have stayed in, purely because of the atmosphere and how friendly and helpful the staff are. The hostel has an awesome rooftop terrace and chill out area just below. It is very close to the centre, and has beers on sale up the top! I would definitely recommend to... More

A gateway to and from Morocco does not do Tarifa or the hostel enough justice....my advice is to add some extra days to just lay back and relax or join the party....whatever suits you best: just know that it's out there waiting for you !

Tarifa Melting Pot hostel had the atmosphere of a casual beachhouse, and it was located only a couple minutes from the Los Lances beach. I seriously felt like we were walking into a beach house converted into a hostel. The kitchen and living area were both spacious and well-equipped. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were solid. The... More

I can't recommend The Melting Pot Hostel, or Tarifa, highly enough. I stayed for one night before taking a ferry to Morocco and left wishing I could have another week's worth of nights.
