The Hostelz.com Review

We had a lovely stay at Santander Central Hostel, and we highly recommend visiting this place if you're around! It has such a nice chill, international vibe and the owner is super friendly.

The Location

As you can probably guess from the name, the hostel is located in a highly central place! The train station is a few steps away, so is the bus station. It's also about fifteen minutes' walk to the ferry that can take you to SoMo, where there is a fantastic beach. You're basically in the city center and everything is within reach. There are even cheap cafes and restaurants just around the corner -- it's got a great location.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms seem to be in a good condition -- they are clean and not too small. Some of the beds are quite close to each other, so there isn't that much space to get all comfy if you have a lot of stuff, but there are lockers with a key provided. There are bed lights for each bed. It's a bit tight trying to sit up in bed, as the top bunk is a bit low, but other than that the beds are really soft and comfortable and we had a great sleep here.

The bathrooms are shared and separate for males and females. They are clean and tidy and there are cute little rubber ducks around -- we love it! The shower is one of those where you just push a button but can't control the temperature; it's a bit strange, but there is hot water after you push it a few times and wait.

Common Spaces

You wouldn't guess by looking at this place from the outside that it is so cool inside -- there is a nice design with some murals and surfboards, and the highlight is the chillout lounge that makes you feel like you're in Nepal, plus there is also nice, relaxing music playing all of the time. There are books, a TV, DVDs, and games to keep you entertained while you're chilling. It's a great place to socialize and meet other travelers. And the breakfast is one of the best we've ever had in a hostel. There are pastries, cereal, fruit, yogurt, and toasts -- so much diversity! You can use the kitchen to cook throughout the day and there are tea- and coffee-making facilities available all day.

Summary

We really like this hostel and wish we could stay longer!
