I stayed in a private A/C room with a friend - the room itself contained a queen-sized bed, bunk bed, a third bed in a loft space, private bathroom, three towels, safety deposit box, and mini-fridge (everything worked except for the safety deposit box). The flimsy shutter-style doors shut with a padlock (not a metaphor - it's actually a padlock).... More

I have been traveling through South America for some time now and this hostel by FAR has the worst customer service. You book a hostel thinking it won't really matter if the staff is terrible, until they are, and you realize how badly you need help when you are in a brand new city, have no idea where anything is,...

So after travelling a lot of the world and staying in many a hostel, we eventually came to Santa Marta on our Columbia stint to stay at La Brisa Loca. There is no hostel to compare this to, because it is bar far the best we have ever stayed. We spent 4 days there to start and realised how great... More

Every person that writes on here about it being a loud party hostel and they can't sleep needs to have a long hard look at themself! You travel to have a good time and meet people not to have 12 hours sleep and be fresh everyday! Yes it's loud but it's people having a good time and meeting new people.... More

It's very well located, the rooms are not crammed with beds, it is very hot inside the rooms but it is very hot everywhere so I understand the why the aircon lost that battle, there are plenty bathrooms and clean, they printed our online plane tickets for free, we paid only 10000 pesos for one night and the terrace is...

Currently staying here and while te facilities are fine, it's horribly loud. There is a bass banging all night long and screaming from the bar. It is impossible to sleep even with ear plugs. Avoid this place at all costs if sleep is something you hope to do. There is no room that avoids the noise. It's horrible

The customer derive from tge staff was wonderful, so friendly and helpful. The atmosphere of the hostel is relaxed but fun and the roof terrace was especially great to chill and talk on. Great bar with good breakfasts and the courtyard is a cool sanctuary from the heat. Great.
