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!

Overview

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.

Location

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.

    Really good hostel, but don't expect to get much sleep if there's a party going on! Good location in the middle of town. A nice bar, and the food was good. One night in a dorm, one night in a private room - absolutely no complaints about either.

    This was such a beautiful hostel. They had a nice restaurant with good food. It was an amazing location, staff was wonderful and friendly. We had a great stay. I highly recommend it. At night time, they have a club on the rooftop. It is beautiful and plays good music. I would love to go back :)

    Enormous hostel, facilities are really new, individual fans for each bed which is a big plus in the humidity! As a solo traveller it was really hard to meet people as it's so big and there isnt really a "common area" just restaurant and bar areas

    The hostel building is really beautiful. I stayed on a Monday evening so I can’t vouch for the party vibe but I have been told it’s a lot of fun from Thursday-Sunday. The reception staff are super nice and very helpful! There is also an air con movie room which is great if you want some time to chill. My only suggestion is to offer filter water for the guests as it’s a big hostel, and all hostels should be trying to help the environment by discouraging plastic bottle usage :)

    Had a good stay here, wasn’t super social but could’ve just been the time of year. Rooms and bathrooms were clean, good breakfast menu at ok prices and helpful staff. Didn’t like Santa Marta as a city that much but this hostel is a good jumping off point if you’re wanting to get to Tayrona and Minca and it’s in a part of town where I felt relatively safe. Overall would recommend.

    Lots of party which is good but if there is that one night you want to rest during your stay maybe isn't for you. Great staff and very clean place.

    Fairly dirty hostel that was loud and marketed itself as being nice but was not. Smelly too. Found used underwear in our room. Staff was not helpful at all when it came to recommendations in the area and itinerary. Not sure if there is much better to stay at price point but was not nice experience.
