Do not stay here if you want to get a decent nights sleep. It's extremely noisy. If you want to be up partying until 3am you're in the right place. Staff are pretty cool. Food is good, especially breakfast. They have a pool table, a movie room, a small swimming pool & a nice rooftop chillout space. There are basic... More

Great! The staff here are all friendly and very helpful. You can tell that they enjoy their jobs! Word of caution: do not come here tired after a long day expecting to get a good night's sleep. The bar area is very loud every night and turns into a club on Fri and Sat night. The music can be heard... More

It looks just like its pictures, but what the pictures don't tell you is about the amazing people working there. From Elia at the front desk to jimmy from la, they're all super nice and helpful! The pool is amazing and the upstairs gym is clutch. The atmosphere can't be beat, I would recommend anyone to stay here

I enjoy sociable hostels and this is the best in Colombia! Two fun bars, a pool, good grub, and friendly staff. you can store baggage free and safely while you take little trips out to Minka and Costeño beach. When you get back there is always a party in one of the bars. Spin the wheel!!!

I was on my way to Barranquilla with my older brother and two friends, and we decided to make a stop in Santa Marta. It was my first time in Santa Marta and I wish we could have stayed longer but we were only there for one day. La Brisa Loca building is very beautiful with air conditioned rooms, which... More

apparently this hostel is a party hostel (looking at photos and from what the girl booking us in warned us...) We had the double with en-suite, stayed here twice during our trip and had room 3 first - was nice, we were chuffed with it until we stayed in cabana 1 on the roof terrace for the same price -...

The only reason I feel comfortable giving this place 1 star is because it has a pool. I have never dealt with such terrible service. All of the staff (front desk, management, security) were rude, dismissive and never once made us feel welcome. There were extra items on all of our tabs and we were given one price one night...
