Fantastic stay, very clean hostel with excellent kitchen and tea/coffee all day. Staff were very helpful and loads of tours can be organized through the hostel. Nice quiet street close to the metro. Great stay and good value


Black Sheep was awesome! Staff was very nice and super helpful! Take the tour! Rafa drives you around Medellin and outside the city....meals included, swimming in lakes, amazing views! Overall great experience.


Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The owners are supremely helpful and incredibly friendly. Would recommend.


Most common areas were not usually clean, the bathroom floor was always wet and had no carpet to step on nor hand towels. Since the is no breakfast included yo have to use a lot the kitchen but it was always dirty and the refrigerator was a mess.

The staff are great and speak English well. The location is good. There is a nice atmosphere there and a lot of different places to hang out. It's a big hostel so there are lots of people.


HOT SHOWER!! Rare in Colombia although you don't really need it in the hot weather. Good hostel with friendly staf. Small enough to meet people and socialise.


Chill hostel, with good vibe


Peaceful location, great coffee shop round the corner for breakfast. The rooms are uninspiring and lack any character but spacious, really clean and safe. A relief to not be right in the centre of poblado but close enough to walk there. Staff were really cheerful and friendly.


Very social hostel which is in the famous neighbourhood close to zona rosa where you find restaurants, parties and bars. Nice roof terrace. Really warm and no air conditioning in the rooms, kitchen could be cleaner and no breakfast. Besides that a great hostel with nice staff.


Really liked the place! Staff is super nice and helpfull. Nice common areas where you can chill and meet other people. It is clean and the beds are comfy. Location is great, near to bars restaurants, a big supermarket en the metro. Would definitely recommend this hostel!


We loved our stay at the Black Sheep. We stayed in a double room with private bathroom. The room was very spacious and very clean and excellent value. We loved the relaxed atmosphere of the hostel and the neighbourhood. The hostel is a ten minute walk each from the metro, the supermarket and the zona rosa, which makes it an ideal base to explore the city if you don't mind a little bit of walking. Only downside is that they don't provide breakfast but there's a great place just around the corner.


Friendly and helpful staff, great location close to the metro and exito and some great tours that the hostel helps to organize that makes life so much easier and enjoyable. The multiple common areas also lead to a great atmosphere within the hostel. I had such a great time staying here.


This hostel was brilliant. The rooms and the inside of the hostel were so nice that it felt more like a hotel. The location is excellent and the staff are very helpful and keep the hostel very clean and secure. It's a big hostel so you can meet a lot of people. The only bad thing I can possibly say is that the wifi was a bit weak in my room as it wasn't right next to the router.


really deserves all the positive comments I read. Friendly staff that learned my name instantly, good information, clean and good facilities. Just ask yourself this question "there is got to be a reason why this hostell is almost always fully booked?". Quality sells itself


Great Option!!! Walking distance to everything. Clean. Good Internet.


Great clean hostel, friendly and helpful staff. Only issue wifi dropped out quiet a bit. Apart from that no complaints at all. Stayed at another hostel in Medillin before, much better atmosphere at blacksheep. Fun and if you want to go out there's always people, If you don't there's no problem!


Good hostel in great location, with private rooms that felt like hotel quality. Knowledgeable owner who provided us some great advice of places to visit. Sin embargo, a los colombianos les cobran impuestos adicionales para quedarse acá, lo cual no es claro en este sitio web. Aunque, en general bien.


Good hostel, close to Metro station Poblado. Has everything you would expect in a good hostel, I liked that there was plenty of space to relax and/or socialise. I found the staff to be incredibly helpful and full of good advice.


Our stay was amazing! The staff were helpful, friendly, and fun. Our room was clean. The area was safe.

This hostel is great for meeting people. The kitchen and outside patio are always being occupied so they are great places to meet people. Staff is very helpful and pleasant especially the owner. Rooms are okay and the overall faciliites are okay. Location is great really close to Exito and Poblado Station. Highly recommend this place as it is a great hostel for meeting people.
