There is no better place to stay in Santa Marta in my opinion for location, atmosphere and activities provided by La Brisa Loca. Ryan and Evan, the owners go out of their way to ensure their guests have a great experience. If you are looking to have a great time, socialize and explore all that Santa Marta and the surrounding area has to offer, look no further! I will be returning in a few months!!

This was my first hostel I stayed at and I really enjoyed it. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The best bartenders, nice drinks, good food at good prices. Looking forward to visit La Brisa Loca again in the future.
The place is really dirty, the swimming pool smell like something have died in it, don't come here if you don't want to ruin your holidays.
Around 10pm we arrived at the bar and there was a very annoying guy with no t-shirt and no pants serving free shots. the guy was tottally drunk and the staff told us he was a very good friend of the owner, who is from the US. The guy wanted to "friendly" fight every single person around and he eventually found a "friend" who accepted the challenge. The fight lasted 10 seconds, the time the drunk guy send the other to the floor and opened his head, causing him a terrible wound that bleeded out.
LOVE this hostel. Great vibe with the swimming pool in the middle of the courtyard. Fun lively bar and great art montages painted on the walls. Oh and they give you a welcome beer on arrival! Room with just a fan was very hot. Will go for A/C next time. Some great street food stalls just around the corner next to the cathedral too. Yum!
The beds and rooms were dirty. Even the bedclothes looked as if they hadn't been washed. The pool, restaurant and roof terrace were fine, in fact the roof terrace was the best part of the hostel with a nice view and comfortable hammocks. The bathrooms were ok, too. There are wooden boxes under the beds for locking stuff in, however, there were several big black bugs in ours, so we didn't use them.
not a bad place. staff was very friendly, and called people by name. that was cool. but if you want to actually sleep....do not come here. they play loud music every night until 2am. not good if you have a scuba class at 7am the next day!
