While bringing comfort and convenience to your stay, we also impart history and style. The large, high-ceiling manor, with its eighteen dorms and suites, houses up to 90 people. Taking in the traditional style and color schemes of authentic Colombian Caribbean architecture, you will enjoy and appreciate the highlights of the region, not only out and about in the oldest colonial city in the Americas, but also comfortably in your accommodation. At La Brisa Loca you can explore and discover Colombia in comfort and style…but then you must face the greatest task of all…leaving the hostel!

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.

    One of the best party hostels on the planet. Great people. I made friends within the first 5 minutes and had a blast. And this was only on a Sunday, Monday, Tuesday. It’s big enough to have privacy and silence if you want, or all out raging. Staff and management is on point. Clean and comfortable. Best location in the city also. Will return 🤙🏼

    A sensational hostel, with great facilities and stunning rooftop bars and terraces. I found it super easy to engage and interact with other travellers as it was a compact place. Clean bathrooms and bed pods with charger sockets and curtains were appreciated too. Loved this place!

    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.

    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.

The room was totally uncomfortable for the price also the clean is bad too.I was there only two nights because the quality is really bad. The funny part is an hotel 🏨 close to there have amazing views also room cheaper
