Arriving at the hostel first thing that stands out is the name, "La Brisa Loca" (The crazy breeze), reflecting what one is about to experience. Upon entering you find a house with 3 floors beautifully decorated, a very friendly staff and party atmosphere. We got a room for 4 people, the room was very clean and it had his own... More

La Brisa loca is in a good location and has great accommodation AND a good price. The hostel was always clean when I was there. Staff was friendly, and helpful with information I needed. It probably could be a "partyhostel" but it wasn't too noisy or crazy when I was there. Just a fun social hostel with a bar. The... More

We've been here 3 times now. The bar staff make this place. Jay and Santi have made this our visit fantastic The newer bar staff are great too! The reception staff let it down a bit though as they are rude, but everything else is top notch! Location is great and there always seems to be space as its massive.... More

This is such a fantastic hostel, with some of the best hotel standard facilities. Beautiful rooftop, great pool and a movie room with 400 movies for recovery times. Lots of places to relax and party. The food from the bar was reasonably priced but not that great - I recommend venturing outside the hostel for food. Breakfasts looked better but... More

It's a party hostel, plain and simple. If that's what you're looking for then you will love it here. Really cool bar, great breakfasts & dinner menu and an open roof terrace. They staff in the bar are good at keeping the atmosphere fun. The only downside was the dorm we stayed in, it was absolutely disgusting. Filthy mattress, I... More

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
