I spent about a week at La Brisa Loca. I should say that I usually go for the party hostels and late loud parties dont bother me. So, it really reminded me of some of my other fav hostels in South America. The building was beautiful old colonial style, in the center of Santa Marta, maybe 5 minute walk to the beach (which isnt that great.) The food sold at the bar was great, the bar itself had reasonably priced drinks. Plus the bartenders are all backpackers, so I suppose that you may have variable results as far as service but when I was there it was perfect. The rooms were unremarkable, but functional in every way a dorm should be. I didnt go swimming in their little pool, but it was clean enough that I would have if I was hot enough. No complaints to be honest. I would stay there again when I return!
I used the hostel as a launch point before and after I went on the Cuidad Perdida trek. Everything went off without a hitch.
