Lovely and very helpful staff. The Room was cleaned regularly. Had a great time in the black sleep. I will definitely recommend to others
Good hostel in a great house. Really friendly and professional staff. Location is good - being in Poblado and close to metro, but is a good 10-15 minute walk uphill to Poblado's nightlife. Bathrooms were sometimes dirty but with one shower/toilet shared between a dorm of 8-10, they would inevitably get that way on account of the considerable traffic they receive!
I enjoyed the atmosphere and staff at this hostel. The location was a little strange and even cab drivers got lost..more than one. It was pretty clean. Great tour to Guatape with Raf! A big highlight of the time there. Too much door slaming though at night, they need to be fixed, esp if your room is next to the bathroom. Overall good hostel in a more quiet part of the city.
Pros: communal rooms & location Cons: not the most nicest staff or the most clean bathrooms
I stayed in a spacious twin room which felt like accommodation in a hotel rather than the average hostel. Facilities are excellent and the hostel is efficiently run. The location is good and close to a metro station. It was my second time here and I highly recommend the hostel.
Calvin is awesome.. the hostel is great.. the Spanish lessons are fantastic. its close to all the bars and they offer advice on tours and directions to everywhere else!
Great hostel. Kelvin is legit. As honest as they come.
Comfortable place to stay, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and fairly priced.
Was very impressed with Black Sheep Hostel Medellin. We had originally booked for one night and ended up extending for another two nights. We stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm and slept wonderfully. Very clean and secure. The staff was kind, wonderful and very helpful. Was in a charming neighborhood. We did the day trip to Guatape - would highly suggest this trip.
I really enjoyed this hostel. The owners and staff were excellent. The area was beautiful. Very comfortable to walk around and explore. The hostel was well laid-out, clean, and had plenty of space to chill. I loved the hammocks and outdoor patio on the 3rd floor. If I ever come back to Medellin, I would stay here again.
security is ok, location is good, near to the metro station, staff is ok, some of them are a little bit unfriendly, there are not enough bathrooms, in 10 bed dorm one bathroom, 8 bed dorm one bathroom and one shared bathroom for the others, there is mold in the bathrooms, rooms are very sticky (airless) and small. internet is very slow. prices are to high for the dorms. value for the money is very poor.
+: Very welcoming staff, very good location. Great trips organized ( El Penol Rock!) -: very simple amenities (good value for money though), room humid I'd recommend the black sheep hotel to anyone willing to spend a good time in Medellin.

Bathrooms are very disgusting one had dried up puke on toilet for my entire stay 3 nights... Night staff is extreamly rude. They are really good at helping you book stuff esp the evening girl. Super cool. Roof top to chill out and have some drinks. Great kitchen. Everyone gets kicked out of roof top at 12 n they take for ever to open door on arrival.
good location, 10 min walk from metro station. i think it is rather expensive for a dorm. only a few bathrooms.
My 2nd time staying at this Hostel. Just as good as the first time. Very attentive staff. Recommended without a doubt.

Very nice hostel in a safe neighborhood with well equipped kitchen nice common area. We had the private rooms and it was very spacious and clean. Definitely recommend the take the tour with the hostel to Guatape. The only down side is there is not enough tables at the common area to dine in (people will chill at the table areas instead of giving way for those who had food and plates in hands). Overall a great stay and great host!
Great hostel ! Kelvin is a super nice guy and can give you tons of informations.
There were few bathroom facilities in the hostel and the bathrooms were dirty. The dormrooms were OK. Also, the girls at the reception were very helpfull. In contrast, the guys were not.
Excellent private room - felt like a hotel. Staff really friendly too. Could do with a bar
Pretty good hostel, the staff and the owner are pretty keen to help and get you out seeing the city. Massive TV (and also one outside) to whack a movie on or some sport, with big comfy couches. Cool rooftop area to chill on the hammocks and have a few cruisy beers. Really safe area next to the metro and close to Zona Rosa. Probably couldn't knock anything about the hostel except sometimes its hard to get on a tour - but even thats not their fault!
