Centrally located Hostal.
Stayed here for one night after walking a section of the Camino from Leon to O'Cebreiro. Very Central location in Santander. Close to bus station, shops & 25 mins walk to beach. Very friendly helpful staff. Clean ensuite rooms. Breakfast available if wanted. Lift from ground floor. Hostal reception on third floor. Would definitely stay again if in Santander.

2 nights in Santander
Basic, but excellent value for a short city centre stay. Superb position around 8 minute walk to bus station. Bars and restaurants in close proximity. Tip, use the lift. Reception is on 3 floor but it is actually 5th floor! Breakfast is minimal self service. My only real gripe, and it's a minor one, was that there was no shampoo/conditioner in the bathroom. As I was only travelling light it would hace been a nice to have.

Simple room but I expected that. Staff were very happy to help. It’s called a ‘hostal ’ but it is actually a budget hotel with your own room and bathroom room. Hotel is really close to shops, the bus station and attractions.

First thing to say a 'Hostal' in Spain isn't the same as a 'Hostel' in the rest of the world it just means a budget or good value hotel not bunk beds and shared toilets! Anyway the place was really nice with a clean tidy bedroom and it's own bathroom. The staff were also very helpful.
