At Santander Central Hostel, everything's designed and managed by backpackers for backpackers so your stay is completely geared around travelling. From the basics – free breakfast with coffee made to order – to the fun stuff (a common room themed after the most remote destinations on the planet), we make it easy for you. There's a kitchen for cooking up lunch and dinner – a great way to save a little cash when you're not splurging on paella – and entertainment includes a games room, DVDs and free Wi-Fi.


We're around the corner from Santander's Estación Autobuses bus station (just a 2-minute walk away) and a 6.8km bus journey from Seve Ballesteros-Santander Airport. There's a shuttle that goes from the terminal and stops opposite the hostel, so we're super easy to get to. We're 450 metres from Santander Cathedral if you want to soak up a spot of culture. And it's 20 minutes on foot to Mirador Rio de la Pila, where you can take a free funicular and get amazing views over the bay below.

Rooms and Dorms

All of our female-only or mixed dorms have bunk beds, which are made from high-quality wood for a delicious sleep and panelled for a bit of extra privacy. They also have two USB ports for charging your devices, an electric socket and a reading light. Bedding's included and our covered mattresses keep things hygienic. Heading out and don't want to take your valuables? You'll have lockable storage for those important bits and pieces.

Extras and activities

We've got a café as well as tea- and coffee-making facilities if you want to start your day with a shot of caffeine. Why not sip it while sitting on a bean bag under the Tibetan prayer flags in the lounge? Regular housekeeping means our hostel stays pristine and you can ask our staff for a towel if you haven't packed one.

    The hostel has a very friendly vibe, it's super clean and the owner is outgoing and helpful. The location is right next to the bus and train stations so it's perfect if you're looking to travel around Spain or just in Santander.

    Hi, I enjoyed my stay at Santander Central Hostel. Good value for money! The location is excellent in the heart of Satander across from the bus station. Great place to stay if your on the Camino and stopping over to explore the city. One of the cleanest hostels I have stayed in internationally. The owner is friendly, helpful and very professional in his service. You can tell he put a lot of work into the stylish decorator & kitchen facilities to make you feel at home. Definitely stay here again!

    This is a great hostel. The location is the best in Santander, right across form the bus station. Very clean bedroom and toilets. However the star of the show is the staff. We had to leave in a hurry and in doing so left a trail of valuable possessions in our wake. No sooner had we gone when Angel emailed us to let us know. He had all our stuff bagged when we sheepishly returned to collect it. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

    Ehhh. Could of better, could of been a lot worse. They pack the room to the max in children’s bunk beds. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone because wasn’t that great but wasn’t terrible. No social scene. All and all I’m just whatever’s about the experience. Wish I only stayed one night, not two.
