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...

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!

Those looking to get some sleep and not 3 types of music blasting from 3 different floors this is terrible. People were screwing in the bathrooms that didn't even stay in the hostel but there to party.

La Brisa Loca is a very nice place to meet people from all around the world. You can start partying at the bar to go out later (if you came here to have some rest after a tough day, you got it wrong...), or finish the night in the beds and hamacs on the roof top. There is enough bathroom...

Party place = not my style. I stayed in the dorm since it's cheaper & I was traveling long term, but it was really unpleasant in there. If you can afford A/C I'd do that. It was hard for me to sleep here because the dorm has no A/C, it's kind of smelly, it's crowded since other backpackers leave their...

A friend and I came here for the weekend for Halloween. We had previously been in Santa Marta and stayed at Hostel La Villana just a couple blocks away. We decided to change it up because we heard about the big party at La Brisa Loca for Halloween. The party did not disappoint. It was packed and we met a...

I stayed here for a few nights while looking into the lost city trek as well as some diving around Tayrona park. The hostal itself is large, with many dorm rooms of various sizes, a TV room, pool, kitchen, a bar/resturant upstairs, and a nice chill out area on the roof. The staff was friendly and helpful, though they could...
