Welcome to our paradise hostel. La Brisa Tranquila, which means 'the tranquil breeze', is set on an old coconut farm right by the beach. So we have the Caribbean coastline to the front and palm trees and jungle as our backdrop. We've got a restaurant and bar serving homemade food and tropical cocktails – ideal for sipping as you sit around the bonfire. There's also a BBQ where we cook up spicy grills. Treat yourself to a massage by the sea (book at our 24-hour reception) or rent a paddle board and master the waves.


Tayrona National Park, a protected nature reserve in Colombia's northwest, is made up of beaches and jungle and is 10 kilometres from us. We're also about an hour's drive from Santa Marta, which is where you'll find the nearest airport, Simón Bolívar International. We've got a shuttle service if you need a lift. The sandy beaches around Mendihuaca are a 10-minute drive and you could also head to the Rio Don to tube down a river – it's a 30-minute ride away in a colectivo (shared taxi).

Rooms and Dorms

Always wanted to stay in a beach hut? Get ready to tick that off your bucket list. We've also got private rooms and dorms indoors, some of which are en-suite. All come with fans, lockers and safes. Bedding and towels are included as well, meaning you'll have more space in your backpack for all that swim gear you're going to need.

Extras and activities

Our Wi-Fi is free so you can hashtag to your heart's content after taking shots of the beach. Ask at our tour and travel desk for surfing lessons if you fancy learning some impressive ocean skills. After surfboard training, there are common areas where you can lie down with a novel from the book exchange. Just add a cuppa made using the tea and coffee facilities for the perfect relaxation sesh.

    La Brisa Tranquila is the perfect place to switch off for a little bit and get away from touristy crowds whilst at the same time still having a great atmosphere! A shout out also to the amazingly helpful staff!! Our trip was unfortunately cut short and they went out of their way to help us with organizing our spontaneous departure and refunded us for all the nights we didn’t stay (even though their policy said otherwise). Can definitely recommend big time :)

    Lovely hostel in great location. Rooms are a bit small and beds felt damp but other than that was great. The woman on the front desk is so sweet and helpful. Food is good.

    Reasonable surf style hostel. Stayed two nights, the dorm on the first night was terrible (smelly, busy and the shower was broken), I moved to a private ensuite and it was lovely 👍🏼

    Having heard such good reviews from friends who visited last year, I was quite disappointed! Location was great but the whole hostel seemed rather dirty, especially eating areas/menus etc and also dorms. Atmosphere also not great for a solo traveller but easy enough to head over to other hostels to find other people!

    I have a list of cons: - filthy the whole time I was there, bedrooms and toilets. And I’m not saying “sandy”, that’s expected, it was just dirty. - staff was not friendly at all. - very hard to meet people - beach is kind of “bla” there, nothing special - the two bed “minidorm” is dark, tiny and really hot. Would not recommend it to anyone, but specially to solo travelers who don’t speak German.

    I stayed in a 2 person dorm, which was only a room with a bed. Safe to say the dorms were not very nice, and NOT clean. The beds smelled and the mattresses were really uncomfortable because it was so used. The staff in reception was really nice and let me change to the other bed, but it was just as bad. The hostel is on the beach which is a plus, nice hammocks to chill in. But other than there was nothing really good about the hostel

    Only stayed here a few nights until the hostel we wanted to stay at had availability. Would not recommend. Restaurant service was shocking, every meal we had there was something wrong and the staff didn’t seem to care. The two bed dorm is the size of a wardrobe. Wifi hardly works, expected for the location however other hostels nearby have a lot better wifi. Also only 3 showers for the whole place so you are always waiting. Not worth it.

    La Brisa Tranquila is an uncomfortable and a dirty hostel in front of a very beautiful beach. Since the beach is private, it's a pretty safe location. But the rooms are terrible: dirty and just very ugly. Very uncomfortable and bad smelling beds, the whole room smelled more or less moldy. My mattress had a hole in the middle and the mosquito net was hanging just from one corner. Honestly, disgusting place to sleep. Not many vegetarian options and the stuff speaks bad spanish.

    There are not enough bathrooms for all the guest. The hostel is overpriced for the kind of rooms that they offer. We got a room and it was pretty stinky. The best thing about the hostel is that it’s located in front of the beach, good happy hour and there was a Colombian guy receptionist at the night shift that was always helpful, besides him the service wasn’t good at all.
