“Great value for the money and wonderful hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

We had booked the Hospedaje Magallanes because of the good reviews and it did not disappoint us at all. Our room (#3) was of average size for Europe and absolutely spotless, the beds were again perfectly clean and comfortable, our bathroom was again spotless and perfectly functional. Both of us were very pleased with what we found. The Hospedaje Magallanes is more like a small family hotel. We had originally booked 2 nights but had to cancel the second night because of a family emergency, despite giving this news to our hosts as we wheeled out our case in the morning they insisted on giving us a full refund for the second night. I simply do not have enough good things to say about our experience.

Room Tip: #3 is 2 single beds facing the street. We slept with the window open and didn't find it noisy.

The Hospedaje Magallanes is in an excellent central location in the centre of Santander, five minutes walk from the bus and train stations and ten minutes to the centre of the city with attractions like the cathedral. It is very good value. It is located half way up a hill in a narrow side street so anyone with mobility issues or who would need to find parking near the hotel may find it tricky. The Hospedaje Magallanes is located in a converted apartment on the first floor of a block of flats. You access it by a set of stairs from the street level, so if you struggle to walk you need to take a stair lift (which looked out of order when I stayed) then a lift and out onto a narrow landing to get to the Hospedaje Magallanes. The door onto the street has a very sticky lock so you may need to practice opening it or have a few panics about being locked out at night as there is staff on only during the day. The local neighbourhood offers a range of bars, shops (including a supermarket) and restaurants. The room and property as a whole is spotlessly clean, with comfortable beds and in the room I stayed in had a large bathroom. There was a TV but only had Spanish channels. The staff prefer to speak Spanish from the communication I had with them, but were friendly and efficient. There is free Wifi which is useful. The Hospedaje Magallanes is a nice cool temperature in a city known for its humidity as it is tiled throughout, but that can make it noisy at night as people come in and go into their rooms so their footsteps echo a lot, not so handy if you fancy an early night. Overall though if you want a very affordable stay in the city centre of Santander I would recommend it.

Excellent place to stay just west of Santander downtown. Great value, clean, nice simple fit to the rooms - ensuite bathroom included. Helpful checkin staff get you oriented. If you are driving in to Santander, print a map, the street layout isn't simple and it's congested!

quality and cleanliness of rooms- spotless with new build bathroom and shower, beds and floors etc cleaned everyday. Rooms were adequately sized with just the right amount of furniture for storing our things. lots of blankets to layer up or down with at night which was helpful.

Location- On the corner of a quiet street just a few feet away from main road in city center close to amenities (carrefour supermarket) and bus station and only 5 mins from sea front.

Privacy- We stayed with no fuss from other customers or staff, because they are like apartment rooms , you'd only bump into staff if you walked through reception!

Staff- are very helpful but are out of sight until you need them. Although sometimes language barrier can be tricky at times.

Would definitely stay here again I'd say most suited to people who want to explore/ travel Santander as its a basic room with all the necessities you need.

Also Luxury of flat screen digital TV and free wifi was lovely.

One thing to note was that the hotel held our bags for us until we had to catch our flight home free of charge.

Modern well situated hostal in the centre of Santander.
The rooms are very basic and functional but spotlessly clean.
Our room,on the fourth floor was spacious and we were able to sleep without being disturbed.
The price was economical and the hostel ideal for two or three nights stay.
Highly recommended.

Went there for five days, got a nice bedroom, nice bathroom, It was super clean and comfortable.Bedrooms are deep cleaned everyday. The service attention was good and friendly. Only bad thing was the bad odor on the main entrance of the building. Will go again for sure!
