Great hostel, really enjoyed my stay there. Used it as a base as we travelled 2 and from tyrona national park. Great roof parties but can chill if you want to as well. Would return again if in the area... Oh and a really cool spin the wheel drinking game there.... A must

After almost a year in South America, I can safely say the staff at La Brisa Loca (specifically the daytime reception staff) were the most miserable, unfriendly, and downright useless bunch I have had the displeasure of dealing with. When they DO finally decide to acknowledge your presence at the reception desk (which usually only happens after they've finished chatting... More

If you just pretend the kitchen doesn't exist, the hostel is dec Good staff, good pool. Noisy since it's an open concept but quiets down after 12 or so. Id suggest splurging on air con room since Santa marta is like an oven from 11-3. Doooooo it!

This hostel is ok. It not the cleanest but facilities are ok, showers are good, it has really good wifi and you can get bacon for breakfast. BUT it is most definitely a party hostel. We were up for a few drinks and a good atmosphere but we were not up for really loud music til 4am and no glass... More

Big old party hostel in need of some renovation work. The bar area is great, great staff, great music, good vibe. (And your first beer is free!) Lockers are big and the beds are ok. What made me move out after the first night though was the cockroaches i kept spotting everywhere.

I haven't spent a night at La Brisa Loca but after a day at the beach I walked back to my hostel to take a shower before my flight and grab my bag, but they had to close for 4 days without notice. I walked in La Brisa Loca got an amazing welcome, the staff was super friendly they let... More

My friends and I checked into la Brisa Loca for one night during our stay in Santa Marta. The front desk were so helpful and informative, and spoke very good English. Our dorm room of 10 was clean and cool from the air con. In the evening the nightlife was impressive, as the hostel has 2 bars. We danced barefoot... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed the atmosphere. Relaxing, casual, creative environment. Great bar area, pool table, rooftop area for hanging out. Memorable Thanksgiving dinner, a chance to meet all different kinds of people. I want to go back!

This hostel has a great location, is reasonably prices, has great facilities and friendly staff! The food is great; especially with the fact that you can get (good) bacon for breakfast! They were really helpful with accommodating us, and it was a fun place to chill in the evenings. Look out for the cat; he bites!
