Staff were brilliant! Rooms were big and clean, lots of space ro put your things. TV room was good and kitchen big and clean.1 thing: not enough bathrooms.

Great hostel. It's really big compared to the other ones I have seen. Everything was well kept and has a more modern feel to it. The staff went out of their way to help out and even though there were a lot of people there they still remembered my name.

Clean, quiet, receptionists were very helpful, no complaints! Perfect if you want to stay near-ish the metro to explore elsewhere in the city. Although if you want to really feel like you're in the Poblado neighborhood, close to awesome cafes, parks, and nightlife I'd recommend moving to a hostel closer to Parque Lleras.

Pretty cool place with nice staff that will help you book future travel. In a nice upper class area of town. A bit on the further side from the main area of bars and restaurants in Zona Rosa (20 min walk). Cheap beer at the hostel and free coffee are always a plus! A good balance of being laid back but not boring with a good atmosphere. Stay here.

I found the Black Sheep a popular hostel, located conveniently near the local Poblado metro station. It had a decent sociable atmosphere and a number of good common areas - I particularly liked the hammocks on the roof terrace! The staff were very helpful and informed about the area. The only criticism I would have is that the bathrooms are a little small and could use updating. Overall I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend to others.

One of the best hostels I've ever seen. Close to the metro station of Poblado, nice and helpfull staff and a clean hostel. We stayed here almost one week. The private ensuite room is like a good hotel room. De quarter around the hostel is somewhat upscale and it's hard to find a cheap restaurant in Poblado. You can find a good one near Parque Poblado: a stylish pizzeria with very good pizza's and pastas. For normal Colombian paisa food, you can better go to Medellins working class hero center.

The black sheep is a great place to stay in a really nice part of town. Only 15min walk to the main square and loads of bars and restaraunts close by. The hostel does great tours and day trips and all of the staff members here are extremely helpful and friendly can't think of anything bad to say about this hostel. It's not a party hostel but that is not a bad thing at all. Definitely recommend this place for people of all ages.

Great kiwi run hostel. Walking distance to supermarket, great restaurants/bars. Good hostel organised tours. Nice atmosphere, social but allows a good sleep too. Good kitchen with everything to cook for yourself. Wifi good. Would stay again.

Great stuff, super helpful! good location (walking distance from the bars). Awesome kitchen and common area.. cleanliness got 3/5 since most of the time bathrooms (both in the dorm and common ones) were dirty.. I stayed in the 10bed mixed dorm which was big enough but the top bunk bed is SUPER close to the ceiling and they need to re-paint the room since the paint is peeling bedly.. overall great atmosphere and I would reccomened anyone to stay there and take their amazing Guatape tour!!

Nice hostel in a good location. Bathrooms were a bit messy at times. There are lots of dorm rooms so at times the amount of people was overwhelming. Juliana was an amazing host, the other guys working the front desk weren't so nice and one played guitar on his night shift which we could clearly hear all night.

Nice hostel, really clean and great helpful staff. Not that close to restaurants about a 30 minute walk so if you want to be near cafes and etc I'd find something a bit closer to zona rosa.

The Black Sheep Hostel is clean and with a nice atmosphere. They had mixed up my booking, so I had the first of my three days in a dorm. Which is okay, but not what I had booked. I would still have lived there again if I go to Medellin.

This is a larger hostel with lots of activities going on. It is in a good location, although, you need a taxi at night. But there is no hot water in the showers, so only stay here if you like cold showers.
