Having booked a trip last minute to Tarifa, the melting pot seemed like an ideal place to stay having seen the photos of the building and the location.
The booking process was quick and easy and the directions from the main bus station were plain and simple.
It is not a hotel it is a hostel so with this in mind the rooms were fine for a night or two. I was welcomed by the staff who took an interest in what I was up to. They helped with my onward plans and told me about places to eat in the town which would not be full of tourists.
The beds were comfortable and the rooms were in a good condition. It is quite a small 'cosy' hostel and as has been mentioned, there are limited shower facilities. I, however did not have to queue for the shower, I didnt have to share it and it produced hot running water, pretty much what a shower should do, I suggest.
It is not the cheapest of hostels but seemed to be friendly, clean and reliable and would happily use it again.
I stayed in the dorm room so can not comment on the private bedrooms but the fun of a hostel is the dorm I guess, I would use a hotel if I needed a private room.
