You'll find La Brisa Loca in a colourful, century-old colonial mansion that's been restored to show off its Caribbean-style spirit. And that's not all we do to celebrate our fun-loving heritage: our chilled restaurant-bar, Rum Junkies, hosts a five-hour-long daily happy hour (yes, you read that right). There's a rooftop you can party on, too – we're famous for our epic fiestas – and an outdoor swimming pool for cooling off in the Colombian sunshine.


Right in the middle of Santa Marta's historic centre, La Brisa Loca is less than a 7-minute walk from the atmospheric beachfront. If you're craving the mountaintop breeze, you can head up to the town of Minca where the climate's a few degrees cooler. (It's a 45-minute taxi ride away.) Arriving straight from the airport? We're about a 30-minute drive from Simón Bolívar International.

Rooms and Dorms

Want to admire views of Latin America's oldest cathedral from your room? Go for one of our private rooftop cabañas – all come with en-suites and outdoor terraces. Our sociable dorms have reading lights, linen and towels included, and you'll have electronic safes, lockboxes and 24-hour security for peace of mind. We also have private rooms in our main building if you want some seclusion – but to be in the heart of the action. Whatever option you prefer, rooms come with an en-suite or have a shared bathroom.

Extras and activities

We're all about a warm welcome, so we'll give you a free drink when you arrive and as much coffee and tea as you like! You can enjoy your brew in the kitchen while chatting with other travellers, or during a little downtime streaming Netflix in the TV room or lounge. And with events ranging from Monday Burger Night to Saturday BBQs, we won't blame you if you want to stay way longer than planned.

    La Brisa Loca is definitely the place to go if you’re looking for a party! The rooftop gets full every night and the music goes till 4am! It’s a super clean hostel with the cleaning ladies literally going all day. The pool area isn’t very nice though and doesn’t get a lot of sun so it’s not a great hostel if you want to just chill all day. The sunset yoga was really good - I definitely recommend going!

    El staff fue súper atento y nos recomendó las mejores cosas por hacer en la zona. Las habitaciones privadas son bastante ruidodas al punto que en el techo viven palomas y no dejan de hacer ruido toda la noche. Adicional a eso no cuentan con cobijas.

    Very Good

    Went on a Sunday night. Lights were out on entire hostel so they moved everyone next door to flamingo hostel which has the same owner. Clean room. Brisa loca bar was still open. Nothing crazy. Pretty chill. I can see a Saturday night being a good party. All in all I just wasn’t crazy about Santa marta. It’s close to parque de los novios which has lots of bars and shops. Wouldn’t go back. But can’t hate on it that much.

    Very Good

    The staff at the hostel were very professional and nice, it was a party hostel so you can expect it to be loud, the beer was cold and the staff provided game nights. Why the hostel got a lower rating from me was because our room was dirty (stains on the bed), the food wasn't that great and the location wasn't fabulous. The staff did change us rooms but for the price you think you would have hot water, that was not the case. I'll keep it short, if you want to party stay, if not don't.

    Pros: Good party hostel especially in the weekends. Friendly staff Close to the main area of restaurants Cons: Theres no parking around If you don’t like yo stay up until 4am every day don’t stay at a private room since is right next to the party area. Private rooms are extremely basic and we found it very pricy compared to other private rooms in the city. Food could also be less expensive and more variety. Also have more local food. There’s no atmosphere in the pool area We feel
