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!

We visited La Brisa Loca on the weekend, and if you're looking to party, this is the place for you. Excellent rooftop dance party on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night, filled with locals and travelers alike. The hostel also has a bar and restaurant with surprisingly excellent food. It's located close to the heart of Santa Marta, and only four blocks away from the beach. The staff was helpful and friendly, full of recommendations and more than willing to help you with transportation needs.

Great hostel if you are looking to party. Stayed here on a Thursday- was pretty calm apart from a few at the bar; left and stayed again on a Saturday- was great to stay there because the rooftop bar is one of the most sought after parties and easier to get into as a guest: no lines or cover if staying there. Overall it wasn't the cleanliest dorm- but if you are looking for a good time on the weekends it out weighs the cleanliness.

The floors were dirty. The "pool" was dirty. The sheets looked dirty. We booked a room with two beds. There was one bed and a mattress in a loft area. The mattress was dirty. There were no sheets for the mattress. A staff member looked at the mattress and asked what the problem was. We explained it is just a mattress and there are no sheets. We got sheets but left the next day and booked at the hotel next door. Only 3 dollars more and it was very clean, had 2 real beds, and friendly staff.

Rude staff who view the guests as an inconvenience and pretty poor value for money.

La brisa loca is definitely a party hostal. If you are coming to party till 4am, it is probably the best for you, and its roof parties Saturday evenings will be a top (if you book a private room, you have a good 95% to wake up nicely with some new friends haha). If you hope at any point to sleep and relax, wrong place, you will quickly hate the bar with music till 1:30 am even during the week! Hostal msaya in the same street (and same range of price) is better indicated!

Not a bad place. Looked like it could get really fun on the weekends, but not a lot going on during the week. Staff ranged from very sweet and accommodating to abrasive. Bartenders were great. Amazing rooftop and courtyard pool.

The front desk staff were great and helped us find cool experiences we were interested in. The bar staff mostly spoke only English - though they had some good food at good prices there. This is a party hostel with loud and really late - like 3 or 4am late - parties all weekend. We came back late after being out seeing a live bad and the party went on for hours more. Lots of English speaking guests here. The pool was lovely.

My friends and I really enjoyed our stay at La Brisa Loca! They accommodated us in 4 bed private although there was only three of us which was pretty cool. There is AC at night, much needed in Santa Marta!I loved the terrace with the hammocks!This is a party hostel on the weekends so if you are hoping to rest I recommend ear plugs. Overall a great time!

big place w lots of beds. very cool vibe and location is great. rooftop deck is amazing and you would see the housekeeper cleaning all the time. the bar area was nice and the pool table room is a bonus. stay here if you want a cool hip place to stay..

A bit noisy if you need rest...

I prefer the dance floor to be outside the hostel. The party seemed to be taking place inside my room, and was as loud at 2am as it had been at 11pm. Could not sleep for the life of me...

Beautiful hostel located in a very central area of Santa Marta. The staff is good and kind. The hostel is ok and the rooftop is amazing. The atmosphere is very relaxed and chill out. Recommended for a good stay, especially if you're planning to visit Tayrona Park or other places around that part of Colombia.

It's an amazing place, with comfortable rooms and the best rooftop to party. But please, be careful of the surroundings if you want to go out at night. I was stolen the last night in just few minutes two blocks away from the hostel, close to the "Bahia de Santa Marta".

Very good experience there !
