My mom, brother and I stayed at Hostal Rocamar after doing part of El Camino de Santiago - a few days by the beach was just what the doctor ordered. We were a bit worried when we first arrived and saw the outside of the building, but that quickly passed when we came in and met the wonderful receptionist there,...

This is the cheapest place we found available in Santander and were really surprised how good it was. The room is pretty small but clean, with new furniture. Bathroom is pretty small as well but everything needed is there. It will take around 10 minutes to get to the beach, not bad as for me. You can walk through the...

Last week I took part in a conference at Cantabria University. I was happy I chose Rocamar Hostal among the suggestions sent to me by the conference organizing committee. 10mns walk to the University and the same to the city center. I had a double room which was cleaned and made every day. The room is spacious and very comfortable....

In Uk the word hostel reminds me of a cheap dreary place, this is far from it amazingly clean ensuite modern rooms with free wifi. Good location and prices around £30 per night double room would definately recommend. Nice friendly staff who speak good English, cheap secure underground parking and a bar/cafe next door.

Dear guest, we are glad to know that your expectations have been exceeded. Really a "hostel" in Spain is like a hotel, but cheaper and smaller. We hope to salute you again.

I stayed here for just over a week in September and overall was very happy with the choice. The hostal is well situated in a safe area - I walked everywhere - the room was comfortable with twin beds, closet, desk etc and very clean. Bathroom was a little cramped but everything works. Downstairs there is a cafe which is...

This hotel was recommended to us by the owner of the #1 hotel in Santander because his hotel was full at the time. Hostal Rocamar was very nice. It is inside a building that also has a restaurant and several other apartments. The staff at Hostal Rocamar was very helpful and friendly and gave us two rooms for 45€ each....

I'm not sure why this is called a hostel as I've stayed in worse 4* hotels in Madrid. At €36 a night for a twin room this was a bargain. The rooms are newly furnished and bright with free wifi, flat screen TVs and a safe. There is a bus stop and a city bike rental point outside the front...
