In October 2013 I re-visited Santander and again stayed at the Hostal Cabo Mayor, this time for 4 nights. The hostal and the owner-mgr Sergio were both as accommodating as on my first stay last year. I wanted to visit the El Pendo cave a few miles from Santander, which Sergio arranged with a taxi driver at a low cost.... More

In my opinion the best relationship between price and quality ugly exterior-nice interior!!! the room was little but very comfortable near from the centre (tapas, wine!!!) and near from bus and train stations and car rent just down the hostel. HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE!!!

Shortly after booking our stay I received a very apologetic email apologising that they had in fact double booked and asking if we would mind staying in one of their apartments located just a short distance away. As it turns out, this was a wonderful peice of luck. The apartment had a brilliant location and was spotlessly clean. Every room... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
