Great hostel in the centre of Santa Marta. We stayed in a dorm with fan and AC and both worked well at night to keep you cool. We were there on a Saturday night and there was a party on the roof which was great, ended at 2am. Outside visitors were allowed in but the hostel had a security guard walking around the dorm area to keep watch. Breakfast not included but the bar on the middle floor served a selection of really nice breakfasts!

la brisa loca will forever be one of my favorite hostels in the world. not only is their staff top notch, but they actually care about you. i stayed for almost two weeks and they treated me like family. if you don't enjoy parties and want a quiet place, i would recommend somewhere else, but how could you not enjoy celebrating with these folks and the travelers. the food is great and reasonably priced and make sure you spin the wheel, but know your consequences :) muchas gracias por todos!

The staff was very friendly and the kitchen was very good. They have a wonderful roof terrace. The hostel was clean, but we stayed 4 nights, and they haven`t change the towels and the toilet bin during our stay.

BEWARNED this is a PARTY HOSTEL, and one of the BEST. The bar staff rule the hostel like kings, there is loud party music and a full bar 7 days a week, with booming party music and drink specials, drinking games etc extending until 1:30am on weeknights and later on weekends! Bathrooms are very clean (3-4x a day) but dorm rooms only swept every other day. DON'T stay here if you are looking for a good night's sleep, DO stay here for great friends and good food, AWESOME rooftop, great music.

Really pretty and nice hostel! Awesome bar on the first floor where you meet many people. Very good and pretty cheap food that you can order here as well. And then the chilled out rooftop. It is mostly a party hostel so it's not ideal if you want to rest. They promote a very good diving school as well, santa marta dive and adventures! The staff is very fun and helpful! Except for one guy behind reception that is not interested at all.

La Brisa Loca is a great hostel, very well located at Santa Marta. Everything was clean and comfortable. However, the hostel has a bar and there are parties everynight. If you want peace and silence, La Brisa Loca isn'n for you.

Great hostel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The place has a big roof with plenty of hammocks, chairs and shade. At night the bar scene is pumping. They also have a really good menu at the bar. Great location and good place to meet fellow travelers.

Keeping in mind that this is a party hostel, that music will be loud every night until around 1am, that people in your room in come into the room drunk in the middle of the night, this is an excellent hostel. Bathrooms are cleaned regularly throughout the day, there are safety boxes in each room for your valuables. Great rooftop bar with hammocks. Great TV room. The only thing I'd complain about is that most of the food they sell is of the American junk food type.

One of the best and most fun hostels I've stayed at! The people at reception were helpful and informative from the get go, from checkin to providing info on things to see and place to visit during our stay. The facilities were clean and they offered plenty of bathrooms/showers. The food was good and affordable. The bar scene (esp the infamous wheel) made the hostel that much more lively and entertaining, thanks to the the bar staff that made the experience! Thanks for an unforgettable stay!!
