This is definitely a party hostel, with a lively bar on the middle floor and a very well-kept bar on the roof terrace (which hosts great nights). Having said that, the rooms (in my case a private double room) are to a very high standard. And it has a cool pool.

Felt totally home in this place. Structure is very good, pool is amazing, snooker is fun, rooftop is a winner, very nice and comfortable. Bar offer 3 happy hours per day and delicious food (not for those on diet though). It is all about fun but under reasonable rules to sustain its awesomeness and minimum living standards. Highly recommend it.

We arrived around 10pm at La Brisa Loca after taking the bus from Cartagena. The lady that welcomed us was very nice and found us a nice shared room with a private bathroom. Overall the room and the bathroom were clean, we were even given towels which was nice. The highlights of this place are the rooftop and the bar... More

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
