The building, with its amplitude and colonial style, is definitely a plus. Really nice atmosphere, with a top floor terrace for partying and quiet spots also. The staff is very helpful. The only thing I didn't like is that you had to buy a lock for the security boxes outside the hostel. Sure, it's really cheap, but still a bother, and the hostel should provide it. All in all, really recommended.
Came for 3 nights. Stayed for 6. Great hostel. One of my favourites so far. Everything a traveller needs thought about. Charging points in the safes. Good showers. Great bar. Stay here.
This is a really cool hostel with great rooftop, bar and really good food in comparison to other hostels. The bathrooms are cleaned often which is nice.
Beautiful hostel. Comfy beds. Great bar and pool. Bathrooms were constantly being cleaned. Only downside is not all rooms have aircon - I sweated up a storm all night and found it hard to sleep.
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.
Amazing hostel, great staff, locations and the rooftop parties are amazing!

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!

great and fun place! with a lovely rooftop terrace and an amazing atmosphere. however their were quite a few cockroaches in the bathroom which wasn't ideal.
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).
great party hostel, amazing bar and rooftop, really easy to meet people. Great cheap food. easy to book trips from the hostel, diving etc. Easy to go to taganga/tayrona/palomino
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.
The fan's in the rooms could use some serious dusting...
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.
