Santa Maria del Mar

Youth hostels, Hostel owned by the Generalitat de Catalunya
The Santa Maria del Mar hostel inherited the summer camp that a banking entity created for it’s employees’ children in 1961 in Coma-ruga. There is not much left from those beginnings, except the privileged location: a forest close to the beach right on the Costa Daurada.

In 1961, in the heart of Coma-ruga in Vendrell, the bank la Caja de Ahorros y Monte de Piedad de Zaragoza, Aragon y Rioja built for the children of the employees as a summer camp that today serves as the albergue Santa Maria del Mar.

The aesthetics of the building are typical of the 70s, with simple and plain lines, without much embellishment, but the renovations that have occurred since then have adapted the space for modern users, and it currently has 290 beds available. Visitors can enjoy the close proximity of the hostel to the beach, among other attractions. One thing that hasn’t changed is the excellent geographic location of the hostel: it’s located on the Costa Daurada, in the middle of a small forest that takes up close to 60,000 square metres, at the foot of the Passeig Marítim.
