Good party hostel with a nice rooftop. But not the best place for meeting fellow travellers. Showers are very clean. Music is played very loud and till late, so if you want a quiet night of sleep this is not the place!

if u go to Tayrona... they just give u a piece of paper... Tayrona is not awesome like Parque Nacional Morrocoy or Parque Nacional Mochima

This is the perfect place to go if you want to party but still get a good night's rest. The party is on the roof so it's far enough away that one could sleep but still close and fun! The showers were hot and clean and guests were respectful of each other.

This hostel was clean and well-located, and we were able to leave our bags for several days while we went hiking in Tayrona. If you are looking for a quiet, chill place this may not be the one for you as the bar can get pretty loud at night (though they tone it down after midnight or so). The room was expensive (private double with bathroom), but the food and drinks were well-priced. They have a very nice veranda on the roof with seating and hammocks.

All of the staff at La Brisa Loca were awesome, with the exception of one guy who wasn't all that friendly. Great bar, great affordable food, really fun new year's party! It's a great hostel environment. Our only concern was the cleanliness in our room- we paid for a private with a bathroom- stained sheets, gross shower- but other than that we loved the environment and location!

This is a party hostel. Worth the stay for a weekend of fun. Bar is a common meeting place. Rooftop is sleek. Stayed 2 nights and made friends with 4 beautiful women and 5 fun guys. Notice that there are not photos of the rooms, that's because this place isn't about the rooms (which are basic but air conditioned).

Craziest hostel I have ever been to. If you like party hostels and are in Santa Marta to have a great time, that is definetely the place to be.

Very nice hostel with good staff. The facilities are excellent with an awesome rooftop hbar, 2nd Fl bar (w food service) and video room. Hostel was very clean with frequent cleaning of washrooms/showers throughout the day. Minor complaint would be the lack of tours offered and some of the front desk staff were really not very helpful at all wit basic info on intercity buses etc. Overall, it's a party hostel but not over the top, a little pricey, but would consider staying there again.

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.
