1) most expensive ... 50k for a 6 bed dorm .... a bed where you have to MAKE IT yourself.. yes, you make your own bed for 50 000 pesos ladies and gentlemen. It's hot and sticky, dirty and a seedy club at the top to enjoy terrible music right from your homemade bed till 3 am. One final thing...

With a friendly, multi-lingual staff, complimentary cerveza on check-in and beautiful facilities, La Brisa Loca taps into what many backpackers are looking for. I stayed at LBL first, 5 years ago when there were far fewer option in Santa Marta. My memories of the place, the party, the people and location were so vivid that I told my little sister...

Don't expect to sleep here - constant partying, and you meet all the negative stereotype travellers here. We were here for New Years, which was actually a real let down. Only go here if you want to be kept awake and drinking the whole time you are in Santa Marta, rather than exploring the beautiful beaches nearby or the town.

If you're looking for a hostel to rest and get a good night of sleep, this is NOT the hostel for you. But if you want to party, have fun and meet nice people, go to La Brisa Loca! This place has a great bar on the second floor and an amazing rooftop bar to party at night and chill...

La Brisa Loca is a nice place to be if you are seeking for young People and Party. During the day you can chill in that nice pool with look into the sky from the Basement. The rooftop Bar has also a Little shower and comfy hamocks to rest in that great heat. Stuff is helpful and rooms are clean....

Admittedly, I should have done a little more research on this place before showing up after a long travel day. That said, it would have been nice if the front desk had let me know that there was going to be a bumping rooftop party until 4 am. On a Thursday night no less. The speakers were bigger than my...

If you want to party, this is a good place to stay. The food at the bar is also very nice! They have a great rooftop bar to party and during the day to relax. But if you want to sleep, dont stay here. Because its too noise! I stayed in a dorm that did not have windows and the...

We stayed here for one night because Masaya hostel couldnt accommodate us one night sooner than we had planned. Hostel staff were really friendly and helpful - and set up a bar tab with your photo when you arrive, as well as offering you one free beer at the bar. The room was spacious and fine - you are given...

Aircon in the rooms is great but only comes on after 10pm which is far too late. Communal areas are fun but the lack of lots of washing areas is a problem - should be more toilets. Drinks not too expensive either, and nor is the food (though we didn't try any food). Would recommend
