The Melting Pot Hostel Tanger
The Melting Pot Hostel is located in the heart of Tangier's medina in the traditional Arabic district of Dar Baroud, surrounded by monuments, typical restaurants, bars and museums.
We’re close to the famous Jamal al Kebir, the biggest mosque in the medina. Gran Zoco Square (the most important centre of commerce) and the beach are 10 minutes’ walk from the hostel. Being one of the biggest medinas in the country, this is one of the places in Tangier that attracts the most attention from visitors.
We’re set in a dar, a cosy, traditional Moroccan house. There is a big kitchen, computers at your disposal, free Wi-Fi everywhere in the hostel and a little bar.
Our two terraces have amazing views over the Medina's roofs; this is the best place to meet other travellers, have breakfast, read a book or try some typical Moroccan plates cooked by our neighbour.
We have safe storage for your luggage on check-out day.
Breakfast, towels and, of course, sheets are included in the price. We also have free maps of the city, board games and the best information and recommendations about Tangier.
Our rooms are all very spacious, with four, six or eight beds. There’s also doubles. Each has new and comfortable beds and individual security lockers.
Cleanliness is a very important issue for us.
We have hairdryers and reading lights at your disposal.
We collaborate with different companies of the city so you can get the best prices if you want to do activities such as kite-surfing, windsurfing, diving, excursions in the mountains or to virgin beaches, horse-riding, parachute, etc.
Our staff speak many languages, some better than others... We can help you in English, French, Spanish, Arabic and Italian. You will find someone from the staff at your disposal 24 hours a day, for anything you may need.
The history of the medina is very ancient, the occupation of its land it's testified from the antiquity.
Surrounded by walls, the Kasbah and the Medina of Tangier have many historical sites.
The Big Zoco is the main entrance door to the Medina; usually there are peasant women selling vegetables they grow themselves.
The Mosque of Sidi Bu Abid with a minaret covered by beautiful polychrome ceramic.
The Mendubia was the residence of the Mendub, responsible for watching for the sultan at the foreign powers during the age in which Tangier was an international region.
The Kasbah of Tangier, situated in the west of the Medina, is another place of great interest. Here is located the Dar el Makzen, the ancient palace of the Governor, built by the order of Mulay Ismail in the XVII century. Now it is the seat of the Museum of Moroccan Arts, whose rooms surround a beautifully tiled decorated courtyard, and where you can admire objects coming from all Morocco: carpets, jewels, ceramic tiles, fabrics and textiles, among others. There is also a part surrounded by the historical walls, which is the most elevated point of the city.
At the end there is a spectacular viewpoint from which you can see the Gibraltar Strait...a phenomenal view.
See you soon in Tangier!

"If you reach Tangier by sea, you need to know that there are two ports: the Port of Tangier (in the city) and the Port TangerMed (50km away).
In order to reach the port of Tangier-city you must take the ferry from the port of Tarifa. If you take the ferry from the port of Algeciras you will arrive at Port Tangier-Med. We are very close to the Port of Tangier city; the lodgings are only a 20 minute walk away.
- From the Port of Tangier-city (taking the ferry in Tarifa) you have two options, you can take a blue coloured "Petit Taxi" which will cost about 30 Dirham's (2,50€) and request the taxi to take you to the Continental Hotel parking in the Medina (it is very important that you specify the Continental Hotel parking in the Medina, because there is another Hotel named Intercontinental at the other end of the city).
We are about 50 metres away from the Hotel Continental's parking, take a right out of the parking on "Rue Dar the Baroud" street, then the first left onto "Rue Cheikh Mohammed Ben Seddik" street, then finally take the first right onto our street: "Rue de Tsouli". So from the Hotel Continental parking, first right, then left, then right again.
If you choose to walk from the Port of Tangier, go up the first hill you find after Hotel Continental (200 metres from the port) that will take to you to the above mentioned Hotel Continental parking. From there follow the previous instructions.
- From Port TangerMed (50km away) you have two options, to take a taxi (250 DH / 23 Euros) or take the bus (20 DH / 1,50 Euros) that leaves you at the Tangier bus station. From the bus station (and the train station) the trip costs about 20 DH / 1,50 Euro
- From the Airport by Bus (the trip costs about 150 DH (13,50€)), or by Train (the trip costs about 20DH (1,50€)) and then you take a taxi to Hotel Continental parking in the Medina. Then just follow the instructions we gave you at the beginning"
