Love this hostel. It is definitely a party hostel, guaranteed to find a group of people up to the wee hours partying any night of the week. It is definitely possible to have an early night and a good night sleep (with ear plugs!) if you want, but be careful about one beer in the bar turning into 10, a... More

I rarely write reviews of hostels, but after travelling for two years around the world and staying in more hostels than I can remember, this place most certainly deserves some feedback. The place is simply AMAZING. It's location is close to everything you may need in santa marta, and the building itself is gorgeous. It had various options in accommodation,... More

It is a clean hostel and I was lucky to get a room in the first floor. In the rooftop they have a bar and there are parties everyday. If you are traveling with this purpose, you should stay there. I loved my experience there and could meet a lot of great people! The only problem was that the credit... More

Planned to stay here a couple of days and ended up staying nearly two weeks! Lots of people I met here also did the same! Yes the hostel gets crazy with parties at the weekend but that is to be expected at a party hostel! The bar is still lively and fun during the week but the music is turned... More

La Brisa Loca is well located next to Calle 5. It has three levels. and as our dorm wasn't at the same level as the bar, it was perfect too. Bar and everything else works on tab. Big box under bed is provided to lock your stuff. Internet works fine and the roof top is just great to chill and... More

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
