I got here at like 11PM and left the next day at 4AM so my impression is obviously limited. My first advice is if you are coming to Baranquilla just for the airport, save yourself the money and sleep at the airport! For people not familiar with Barranquilla, while it is a very large city it is very not touristy... More

The staff is very welcoming, always available if you need anything, and this is one of the best neighbourhoods in the city, safe and with typical Colombian houses ! It's a great place to meet people Great value for money !

The hostel is clean and the stuff is super friendly. Everthing is nearby and also a pizzeria with real italian pizza is there. For chilling and enjoying barranquilla is it perfect. Grazie per ospitarmi.

I spent 3 nights in The Meeting Point hostel, everyone was kind and friendly. The price is fair and the location is good in a safe barrio. The cosy atmosphere makes you feel like home away from home. They have a well equipped kitchen and a pizzeria right next door.

This was an excellent place. The people running it were incredibly kind and helpful. I do not understand some of the previous comments that I read because in my experience the rooms and bathrooms were very clean and everything very organized. The Pizza restaurant attached was the best pizza I have had in Latin America and of course it probably... More

Its an average hostel, the service is poor, rooms are not very clean and it doesnt smell well. As positive points, it is located in a safe neighborhood, prices are reasonable and its one of the few options you get when you travel to Barranquilla, because it is not a turistic city. However it is ok for staying one night.

The putrid waft hit us as soon as we walked in. Dirty clothes and clutter draped everywhere, cats roaming the halls where the owners leave handfuls of food for them on the floors. The dorms are scary. No A/C or decent fans in a very hot/oppressing atmosphere. The dorms are cramped, yet did seem relatively clean, though the loose live... More

This Hostel was AWFUL! The room was dirty, old blankets with stains, death insects on the floor, and powder everywhere. The bathroom was dirty, the lights were going on and off all the time! the toilet was full of black hairs, and didn't have a chain to pull the water down. The kitchen was all dirty and messed up.

The hostel has a good location and the owners are very receptive. It's a very humble, but fine place. There is not much to do in Barranqilla, but if you happen to be in the city, this is a good place to stay. Breakfast is not included, but the price us fair.
