I really liked this hostel. The location is fantastic, so close to the train and bus station. Everything is clean and stylish in the room. Very comfortable. Staff member was very helpful on check in. Definitely would recommend.

The hostel was very easy to find and is only a few steps from train or bus station, also the bus from/to airport stops at the station. It is 3 min walk from city centre and the sea. The room was extremely clean and had everything we needed (coffee/tea, water heater, fridge). The room and bathroom are small but very cosy, and the bed was one of the best we had on the whole trip. The lady that was in charge was very friendly and helpful. On the last day she allowed us to leave our luggage in the hostel for most of the day (we had a flight in the evening) even though there wasn`t much room to leave it at and we had a lot of luggage. If I ever return I will defenitely stay in this hostel again.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hostal Cabo Mayor for one week at the beginning of May 2013. We arrived early but the manager was kind enough to let us leave our cases and to check in one hour early as well. He then showed us a map of Santander and suggested many restaurants and bars. Fabulous location and surprisingly no noise at all despite being right beside the bus, FEVE and RENFE stations. Easy to get to from airport (take the S4 bus, it costs 2.20 euro single and takes 10 minutes). Also very easy to get to the centre of town, less than 5 minute walk to the main street, bars, restaurants and the Cathedral. We also took a day trip to Bilbao, which was very convenient to get to. We took an ALSA coach from Santander bus station, which took 1 hour and 30 minutes and cost 25 Euro open return for the 2 of us. All in all a very enjoyable stay- great food, wine and weather.

Very clean and fully equipped rooms with bathrooms, new and luxury furniture, kind stuff and perfect location-beside bus and train station and you need 1 minute or less to get to the city main square and everything you need. Also the price is great. I kindly recommend this hostel to everyone. I´m fascinated with everything! This is the best hostel I has stayed in!

Great location next to bus station and city center. There's no private parking, but you can find parking houses nearby. Rooms were spotless and very nicely decorated. You could hear people next door, but luckily ours were very quiet and with the room rate we have no complaints. Would definitely go again. The person in reception spoke English and was very efficient. They also have local map to provide.

This was a really lovely place to stay, Great location right next to the bus station which was great as we were travelling to our next location by bus. The hostel itself was really clean, we were pleased to find a mini fridge and kettle in the bedroom! The staff were really friendly and helpful even though we didn't speak much Spanish. Would definitely recommend this hotel!!

Fully renovated this year,used to be good now its very good,
New furnishings,TV, wi-fi,fridge.safe,spotless toilet ,across the road
to Bus and Train,exceptionally helpful management. Near everything.
This is a boutique Hostal with only 6 rooms so expect competition for reservations.
