Decent enough hostel, kitchen is nice and clean with good utensils. TV room is nice. Not that many open areas to hang out. Nicely located close to a metro stop and massive supermarket.


Me and my three friends really enjoyed our stay here. It is a 15minute walk from the centre which is fine in big groups or by taxi but not recommended walking alone. Taxis tend to find it difficult to find the hostel but eventually do. Staff were good. Not only one common room unfortunately so felt it was more difficult to get to talk with people. Nice stay.


Fantastic hostel in a great city. Booked in for 1 night, stayed for 5. Clean, good facilities, great public spaces and very attentive and knowledgable staff. We had a private room and it was easily hotel standard! The only issue I had was the Pablo Escobar tour we were sold through the hostel. It was extremely expensive from the beginning, but I thought it would probably be worth it as it is run by Pablo's brother and you get to meet him as well, but it was abysmal. Complete waste of time.


Nice hostel in a quiet neighbourhood, short walk from metro station and zona rosa bars and restaurants. Some nice communal areas and a good, functional kitchen (no breakfast available, but there is a supermarket nearby). Private room upstairs didn't have much character, but the bed was comfy and there was lots of room. Wifi worked well. Shared bathrooms were clean. The staff were fantastic and the best part of this hostel; very friendly and also full of great information!


Great Hostel, helpful staff. They knew some great tours to do.


Hands down favorite hostel I have stayed at. Would definitely return and recommend to others.

Very clean. Day staff were very helpful and friendly (One night staff member was nice but not prone to over extend himself). Location excellent if you don't want to be surrounded by bars and clubs...but they are close as is the metro. Bakery


I stayed in a private room for two nights which was great. The bathroom was very nice and the room itself was comfortable. The room did not have air conditioning, but the fan they provided was sufficient. The staff at the front desk is very helpful and friendly. Highlight of the hostel. The location is safe and in a cute neighborhood just a ten minute walk from the metro. I'd recommend the Black Sheep for a stay in Medellin!


Amazing staff, very friendly and helpful I will stay there again!


Very happy with the staff; helpful and friendly


We had a double room with private bathroom, and it was incredible, better than many hotels. The best private room we have had in hostels.

This hostel was well located as you could walk to the metro easily and also into an area with bars and restaurants. It was very clean and our room was more like a hotel room than a hostel!


This place is huge. Closest hostel to the metro, but you trade that as a hike to anything else in Poblado (its in a residential area. Outside space needs more seating for the amount of people staying there. The lockers aren't in your room, but that also means you can lock up your stuff if you arrive before check-in or stay after. We were taking a night bus and said we could continue using all areas of the hostel until 10pm as long as we were out of our room, which was great.


Amazing BBQ served on a Sunday. Good to go out at the weekends but quieter mid week when I was there. Good tv room and hammock space. Staff were helpful and laundry was done in a day!


Great place, deffo a part hostel! Clean, wicked staff- accidentally got upgraded to a private room rather than a dorm.


Double room with ensuite was spotless and spacious and hot water plentiful. Kitchen was well equipped but a little small for the number of guests. Staff very helpful.


The staff here are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They have organised tours from the hostel and can assist in anything you want or need. I love the fact that it's in a quiet neighbourhood but a 10 min walk takes you into the thick of the party zone. It's a place where you can chill out by yourself or hangout with others in the hostel or go party with them. The facilities are good, with loads of outdoor spaces and comfy sofas in the TV room and the hostel is clean.


Awesome place to stay .staff are all GC's very helpful and know everything you need to know, good tours run from hostel,perfect location 10min walk from the nightlife around Parque Lleras ,safe neighbourhood. Sunday BBQ not to be missed .Will be back asap.


Great hostel. Super helpful and friendly staff, good tours, big comfy beds and well located.


I got a private room room here to end off my travels which was magnificent. Beautiful private room with bathroom and television which still allowed you to mingle with fellow travelers in the common areas. The staff was marvelous as well.
