|La Brisa Loca|
Calle 14 N 3-58, Santa Marta, Colombia
Located in an 80 year-old, neo-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 eleven dorms and suites houses up to 60 people and provides beverages for many more.
Why not sink into a frosty Pilsen (the Colombian's national pastime) in our full size bar, take a refreshing dip on a scorching hot day in our super chilling pool, get your grub on in the BBQ area, become a swinger… in our hammock room, if your missing you're dose of "The Antiques Road Show" kick off your flip flops and relax on a comfy sofa in the TV room, play with our balls… in the billiards room(coming soon), be a cool cat in our chill out lounge or soak up some rays up on the roof top terrace(also coming soon).
Here at La Brisa Loca you'll be spoiled for choice-- can we kick it? Yes we can!
If taking a taxi, be sure to negotiate a price of 7,000 cop before getting in. Tell them the address is Calle 14 Numero 3-58 Centro Historico, right next to Plaza San Francisco. Or take the bus (collectivo) for 1,000 cop and get off on the beach right next to Parque Simon Bolivar. Walk away from the beach along the left side of park and continue half a block after the park ends and the hostel will be on your right side.

Pick up the Cheech n Chong bus at the park entrance and take it to the end of the line, El Mercado, Calle 11 con Carrera 11 in Santa Marta. From there you can get a 3,500 cop taxi (see above for address) or walk your way back trough the market, 7 blocks towards the beach and three blocks to the left.
