Ranging from dorms to private accommodation, each unit at the Santa Maria is decorated with attention to detail in a very colorful way. Dorm rooms have lockers, individual reading lights and access to shared bathroom facilities.

Guests can use a fully equipped kitchen to prepare their meals. The restaurant on the ground floor serves a variety of meals based on fish, from sushi to the freshly caught fish.

A mezzanine floor encloses the lounge area, with a reading nook, a flat-screen TV and sofas. There is also an outdoor seating area, where guests are welcome to relax. The central location of Santa Maria means guests are a few steps from the lively bar street, and a cable car can also be found within walking distance.
