The building is beautiful, the staff was helpful, the bathrooms were clean, the pool sparkling and refreshing -- loved the place. Enjoyed being close to Plaza San Francisco and Plaza Bolivar -- well lighted at night, and I always felt safe, a very good neighborhood. Best restaurant in Santa Marta right next door and very reasonably priced. This was my... More

Its a fine place for the younger generation. I booked in at the last minute based on Lonely Planets recommendation. I am in my 50s and not a backpacker so i make allowances for that . I booked a single with air con at 70000pesos per night ' now thats expensive for Colombia ! The building, the pool, the bar,... More

Stay here if you want to party a lot-you will not be disappointed! Also they have a great pool. However be warned parties go on late and loud so don't stay here if you just want to sleep a lot :) They put on good nightly food at cheap prices. They could improve on cleanliness. We stayed in one double... More

Good location. Bar and great food on site (in same building). Atm's within couple hundred feet. City beach 3 block walk. Taxi's stop at front door. Deck on roof for sunsets. Great people, owners + staff. I am going back next month to stay longer this time.

If you are going to Santa Marta I would firstly recommend you to stay in Taganga, this little charming fisherman village about 15 minutes away. But if you decide to make your base in Santa Marta and you are looking to have a very good time, meet loads of crazy travelers and party every night, then stay at La Brisa... More

Run by two surfer-dudes from California. Nice place, clean enough, has a nice small swimming pool - I took dips in the evenings. Nice bar with a nearby functional pool table and the the guys will pull out their 'Rock Band' equipment and play with you if you want. Nice location in the central part of the city near the... More

The American guys who started this hostel have done a brilliant job restoring that original building while adding their own personal design touches from the molding to the open air flat screen tv room. The warm gold and orange colors are beautiful night and day, the hammock room is great for a book, and the communal dinners are fab for... More

This is going to be one of the biggest hostels in all of South America some day. It's got all the right ingredients... billiards & social rooms, bar & kitchen, pool, and all very clean. Owned by a couple of great travelers who have lots of stories to share, and recommendations where to go next.
