Lovely central hotel. Rooms small but comfortable and modern and clean. Noisy when you leave windows open which you need to do as no air conditioning. Sinage needs to make it more obvious which buzzer to press when first arriving. Fine after that as you have your own main door key.Owner very helpful.

I'm walking the Camino de Santiago and arriving at Cabo Mayor is a treat! Modern, clean room and bathroom right in the centre of Santander. It's tiny but has all you need and the owner has put in a fridge and kettle which makes the stay even more pleasant. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Overall great value for money!

Cabo Mayor is a wonderful little place to stay in Santander. It's clean, fresh, modern and the owner thought about your comfort by putting in a fridge and kettle. It's small, but has everything you need. The owner is very friendly. Great value for money. I will go back to this place next time I'm in Santander.

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
