We loved our stay at Black Sheep and have recommended it to anyone we have met who is heading to Medellin. Stayed in a double room which was spacious, clean and comfortable. Really helpful and friendly staff and lots of good common areas to hang out. No breakfast, but a good kitchen that you can use. Close to the metro and only a 10 minute walk up to the main area of Poblado.

Typical backpacker hostel. Great if you want to meet travelers from many places. Good information. Free coffee in a very nice bakery.

The 6 bed dorm I was in was spacious, and the beds were comfortable. Nice hang out area upstairs with hammocks. Big refrigerator, and clean kitchen. Easy walking distance to the metro, tho it was hard for my taxi driver to find. People congregated for a beer before going out, and went as a group up to the park, a safe 15 minute walk. Not a late night party hostel.

We stayed in a private room and really like this hostel. Very nice modern rooms with TV, sofa, good mattress, etc. Location was good with only 5 minute walk to restaurants and just slightly further to Metro. Several nice sitting areas to hang out and lot's of cold drinks. Activities were easy to book through the hostel as well.

Great chilled out hostel with more of an older crowd when I was there. If you are interested in bars/restaurants/cafes it is not in the best location and you will be making a 20 minute walk up the hill like i was everyday (which is no biggie). In saying that it is very close to the metro and supermarket. T.V room was incredibly comfy with plenty of space for all. Fantastic staff who are very helpful and knowledgable.

Perfect hostel, VERY clean and staff is really helpful. Very safe and comfortable. They accept payment by card! There is a washing facility (payable). It has a good kitchen, but as the hostel gets crowded, the kitchen can get really busy... Anyway, it is located 5min from the metro station and 5min from lots of good restaurants and bars.

Stayed both here and in Casa Kiwi while in Medellin and definitely preferred this one. Very social hostel with excellent dorms, good kitchen facilities and nice outside areas. Although a taxi ride away from the main nightlife and restaurant areas, the neighbourhood is nice and close to fast food places, a bakery and a metro. Recommended.

A nicely located hostel in El poblado with a friendly staff. Good common areas and a relaxed atmosphere. A big plus is that it doesnt get noisy at night.

Great hostel with incredibly helpful staff. We got a private double and would say it was our favourite hostel we stayed in. Quite clean and comfortable with a good vibe.

Black Sheep was a great hostel located in Patio Bonito in Medellin and close to El Poblado Metro station. The staff was great and very helpful, they are connected to a lot of walking tours and things to do, so it is easy to find activities to get yourself involved in. Their were plenty of bathrooms and good wifi connection, but it isnt the most trendy looking hostel but it serves its purpose. Cool outside barbq area and chill out on the second floor deck was all i needed to satisfy me.

The bathrooms especially toilets were not clean. Other than that the hostel is the best option to stay in Medellín.

Nice hot showers, clean spacious dorms and fun social hostel met some nice people there. Staff helpful with information though booking an extra night wasn't the easiest. Good kitchen and TV area. Big Exito very near so easy to get food to cook. A few more tables and chairs on the terrace would be good but hammocks there very nice.

Possibly our favourite hostel in our 9 months in South America. It has an endless maze of areas to relax and socialise. Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms were lovely spacious and clean. The kitchen was well equipped all be it very manic with lots of people cooking. Just a great hostel to stay in, you will find yourself spending longer than anticipated.

It'd be awesome if you took credit / debit cards. Other than that everything was excellent. Keep it up!
