Great hostel- stayed one night which coincidentally happened to be the night of a huge rooftop party which was awesome. Staff were incredibly nice and helpful, made friends with other travellers, dorms were spacious with good lockers (take a padlock) and a place to get ready plus adjoining bathroom.

Our group really enjoyed staying here. Had breakfast here every day, and it was delicious! The location was great too, only a short walk from popular restaurants and easy access to the bus routes. Having the rooftop bar and second floor bar was great, especially for anyone who may be nervous about walking the street at night, you won't even need to leave the hostel for a great party!

No locks on the dorm doors so anyone visiting the nightclub upstairs could possibly enter the dorms.The bar was a nightmare most evenings when its just this constant childish spin the wheel and kinda bully people into showing tits and arse.Party hostels should encourage travellers to mingle and be social not scare them from the bar.Also perhaps they could ask the police to keep an eye on all the drugdealers and robbers lurking in the square outside after dark.

Its a really nice experience to stay at la brisa loca. The party is almost the best in Santa Marta. Pool, bar, tv room, lobby, rooms and especially the deck are really comfortable and clean. The best ubication, near of taganga, la bahía, el rodadero and the road to tayrona. We stayed there for 4 days and we recommend this beautiful hostel! Quedarse en la brisa loca es una muy recomendable experiencia. La fiesta es de las mejores de Santa Marta. Bien ubicado, limpio, seguro! Hermoso hostel!

big party hostel 100%. everybody knows about this place to party. very nice roof top bar/dance floor. good shared dorms and bathrooms. kitchen definitely needs an upgrade, if many people would use it, it would be a hassle. good information about tours and activities. nice helpful staff. good place to stay the weekend and meet other travellers or locals.

Horrible staff, horrible hostel. Music plays at ridiculous volumes in the bar throughout night. And when you are in the bar you cannot hear a thing let alone can the bar staff understand your drink/ food order! Avoid.

Great party hostel, beautiful house and very nice rooms. The rooftop is great and on the weekends there are good parties. The staff was not very nice though, arrogant and not helpful. Our privat room was generally nice, it just had a weird smell.

Really great place - parties are crazy and staff were nice. We got the private room which was clean and had AC too! The main reason we came to Santa Marta was to visit Tayrona National Park but it is closed for the month. We didn't let it dampen our mood and we did the Minca tour suggested by the staff which was a great day out. If you are looking for a chilled hostel during the day and lively at night this is the place to go to.

Amazing hostel! We found a really good place to enjoy Santa Marta. Their two floors are full of colors and funny pictures, their restaurant has the best burger I ate in my trip... and off course the terrace are the best place to pass a while seeing the sky and getting the breeze from La bahía de Santa Marta. I recommend this place without doubts.

Central location, good facilities and amazing parties on the weekend. What more could you want?

Hostel was centrally located and has a selection of space for everyone. there's the quieter tv room, the rooftop bar/dance space (me thinks the dj only plays on the weekend) and there's also a sports/lounge bar on the second floor. Showers are excellent with good pressure. Would suggest to have power points installed for those in the upper bunks. there was only one source with 3 points for all 8 person in the room. Staff could be friendlier. It took some effort to get them to smile.

Had a lovely time at Brisa Loca, the atmosphere was terrific with a fantastic staff and a cool crowd of guests. The roof top is a great place to chill throughout the day with a vibey bar for the evenings. I would highly recommend for other travellers looking for a central base in Santa Marta from which to then explore the surrounding areas.

Stayed one night in a drom. Room was quite messy and dirty but the bed lopked clean and was very comfortable. I booked two beds in the dorm in advance. When we arrived one of the beds was occupied but the receptionist didnt know who it was…so he took the bag on the bed to the reception and that person never showed up in the room…. Dont know what happened. Front desk members could be more welcoming, friendly and helpful. Party on the terrace was good fun. First we were quite tired as we arrived l

Very fun hostel, was for Friday evening party on the rooftop. Nice people, friendly atmosphere, everything you could ask for. It is a little bit run down, but just adds to is charm.

La Brisa Loca really is a special kind of hostel. The location and atmosphere were perfect. But what LBL is best known for is its party culture. We partied all Saturday night on the rooftop with what felt like all of Santa Marta. LBL has been one of my favorite hostel experiences EVER. I strongly suggest this hostel for young backpackers. I don't suggest staying here, however, if you really need to rest and have an early start the next morning. The front staff were awesome!
