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.


The staff are the best part of this hostel - they were so friendly and helpful! Great social atmosphere, everyone drank and went out together while I was there. Location is right by the metro and a big supermarket. Dorm room was so-so, I was in the basement which got very hot and stuffy, even with a fan. Only one shower for 10 people, but it was probably the best shower I've had in South America (that water pressure!!).


Nice social hostel with awesome upstairs patio with hammocks and a great view. The downstairs bathrooms got absolutely disgusting every single day of our 5 day stay...they need to be cleaned more frequently. I recommend using the upstairs bathrooms instead, they seemed nicer.


Gracias por la hospitalidad a todos. Definitivamente voy a recomendar Black Sheep a alguien que viajara por Medellín.


Nice hostel with good facilities ( only thing they didn't have was air conditioning). The staff were helpful in providing maps and directions as well as help with onward journeys and excursions. Very quiet hostel within a 10 minute walk from the metro, supermarket and about a 15/20 minute from the bars and restaurants. Sunday BBQ very good as well.


Decent place with a big party scene, a little bit far from Poblado though. Not a place to stay if you're after an early nights sleep.


Excellent hostel. Great room and facilities. The room and hallways were spotless. The staff at reception were excellent and got slots on tours for us at short notice. Lots of good tourist advice and it seemed they had the first name of everyone in the hostel on first name from check in! hostel also in a lovely area with a gorgeous coffee shot around the corner
