Kate Schlegel thinks…

"I loved the location. It was near by to many banks, food, and blocks away from the local beach. I stayed here for about 4 nights and in the middle I took off for Parque Tayrona. The hostel allowed me…"

The newest and best backpackers’ hostel in the historic center of Santa Marta, Colombia.
La Brisa Loca encompasses comfort, service and ambiance. This beautiful, centrally located hostel is in a two-story, 80 year-old new-republican mansion that has been restored and remodeled two brothers, Ryan & Evan Dore. Great attention has been given to detail in order to recreate the original colonial charm of the historic building, and to provide a variety of amenities for the value conscious backpacker.

About La Brisa Loca

Located in an 80-year-old, new-republican mansion that has been restored to recover its genuine colonial, Caribbean feel, this is one hostel where you won’t feel like you’re still backpacking. While bringing comfort and convenience to your stay, we are also imparting history and style. The large, high-ceiling manor, with its thirteen dorms and suites houses up to 85 people and provides beverages for many more. Why not sink into a frosty Pilsen (the Colombians’ national pastime) in our full-size bar while enjoying a philly cheese steak, take a refreshing dip in our super chilling pool, if you’re missing your dose of “The Antiques Road Show” or your favorite football team, kick off your flip flops and relax on a comfy sofa in the TV room, play with our balls… in the billiards room, soak up some rays up on the rooftop terrace, or catch up with your friends on Facebook using our WiFi or free computers. Here at La Brisa Loca you’ll be spoiled with so many great choices.

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 hospedaje. From cooling off in the pool in the open-air colonial courtyard, (please no fruit revealing banana hammocks) or watching the bustling city streets from one of our balconies, to scouring the seven seas for salty sea dogs and pirates atop ye olde crows nest (well from our rooftop terrace anyway… g’arrr!)

At La Brisa Loca you can explore and discover Colombia in comfort and style…but then you must face the greatest task of all…

Location Information

With an ideal, central location, we are only a few feet from Plaza San Francisco, one block from Parque Bolivar, two blocks from the oldest Cathedral in South America (repent your sins free of charge) and three blocks from the beach and local nightlife (with bars and clubs playing sexy salsa to booty shaking beats.) Our location in Santa Marta is perfect for enjoying the city. Experiencing Colombia outside Santa Marta couldn’t be easier: a visit to the beautiful white-sand beaches in the Parque Tyrona is a must for any self-respecting beach bum; if you prefer your coffee roasted rather than you skin, visit the stunning mountainous coffee region of Minca and explore its many waterfalls and natural pools; take the plunge and check out the array of colors and species on display with the very reasonably priced SCUBA diving in Taganga, as well as in Santa Marta; or become Indiana Jones and venture deep into the jungle to the lost cities of the Sierra Nevada and to the exotic region of la Guajira. There is so much to do here.
