Santander Central Hostel

Our hostel is the perfect opportunity to spend some time for free in one of the most beautiful cities in Spain. The hostel has been opened for 6 seasons now... and we areprobably the most authentic "backpacker" hostel in town... We want to keep the sense of adventure because we are backpackers ourselves... and we still love it !!!

My name is Angel. I am a hospitality manager with many years of international experience. Our hostel pretends to be a relaxing place for those who need a rest while enjoying this fantastic city. The working environment at the hostel is quite relaxed. Volunteers are part of our family, and as part of a family we do care for each other. We are a team that takes care of our guests in a sincere way. Do you want to be part of it? :)

I had an incredible time in the Santander Central Hostel! I met a lot of people with very different experiences, I had time to think, to read and to enjoy nice walks next to the sea. I really appreciated it and I really felt like home! Angel helped me to get more confidence, to practice Spanish and English and to feel part of the hostel, to feel involved!
Thank you so much for the experience! It was my first volunteer experience and it was super nice to start there! I wish you the best! 🍀🌞🌊

Mi primer voluntariado y la mejor experiencia que podría haber tenido.
Desde que me postulé la comunicación con Ángel fue de maravilla, me recibió muy bien, me dió mi espacio y tiempo para que me acomode.
Trabajar con él y con Lucia fue de lo mejor, risas, charlas, historias y cafés a media mañana 🤩
Me llevo el mejor recuerdo de Santander y una amiga para siempre, Romane, quien fue voluntaria junto conmigo.
Espero volver pronto 💞

Camila, tú también fuiste como un suspiro de aire fresco en el albergue. Te adaptaste rapidamente, y supiste sacarle lo mejor a la experiencia. Fué un verdadero placer tenerte a bordo. Aquí dejas una casa... y amigos para siempre :)

Awesome experience working at this hostel. Lots of free time. Its a very clean and relaxed environment. The daily breakfast is stocked! You'll enjoy visiting the beaches and the manager Angel is a good guy who can teach you a lot about hosteleria. He likes when you socialize with the guests and make them feel at home as he does. The volunteer bedroom doesn't have windows but the fan makes a big difference.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to spend time on the beach and meet new people.

Miss Katia has turned out to be the most special volunteer of all those who have passed through this hostel. With a restless, fun and energetic personality, Katia has left her mark in this house. Her contagious laugh is still heard in the hallways and in the living room. I personally ... miss her so much. Thanks Katia.

Lamentablemente, recibí una confirmación y un mensaje del equipo sobre mi estadía, apalabrando una fecha en la cuál necesitaban ayuda, mas no cuadramos bien las fechas. Intenté comunicarme con el equipo a través de la aplicación sin respuesta durante días...sin éxito alguno. Cambié mis planes para voluntariado a otra ciudad.

Hola Edith. Lamentablemente, no pude abrir el hostel (después de 8 meses cerrado) ni contestar, ya que enfermé de Covid y estuve ingresado en el hospital (una semana). Lamento mucho la falta de comunicación y las circunstancias adversas (fuera de mi control). Ahora ya estoy bien y el hostel abierto (desde hace 1 semana) Quedas invitada a venir de voluntaria cuando gustes y (ahora sí) prometo comunicarme como siempre hago con los candidatos. Cuídate mucho.
