    It was a clean hostel with a good location and atmosphere. It's on a quiet street in what seems to be a safe neighborhood that still has food, bars, and clubs within a walking distance. Friendly staff and as someone traveling alone, I had plenty of chances to meet new people to do things with in the city.

    I have been returning to Black Sheep for many years now, the owner and his staff are always doing their upmost best to make sure everyone is happy here and treated like part of the family. The hostel has a friendly, chilled vibe and it is easy to meet fellow travellers. Patio Bonito the area in Poblado where the hostel is at, is perfectly located in a safe neighbourhood, you can literally be at the metro, supermarket, gym, malls in a short time and nightlife area in 7 minutes.

    Black Sheep is an awesome accommodation for Medellín! I was booked for only a week and ended up staying 6 with plans to return within a month (currently traveling Colombia 🇨🇴). The hostel is kept very clean and the staff members are very friendly and knowledgeable about the city. Location is perfect as you are a 5min walk to the grocery store and less than 10min walk to the metro station to easily get around Medellín. Also a safe location. Definitely recommend 100%. Thanks Black Sheep staff!

    Best hostel experience in the country of Colombia! My stay at The Black Sheep was excellent and exemplary in every possible way. 1) the most helpful front desk staff that I have ever encountered, 2) warm, friendly and welcoming environment, 3) comfortable, clean and bright rooms with nice windows, 4) abundant shared spaces including multiple beautiful patios, hammocks and hang-out spots, 5) convenient and quiet location with easy access to metro and shopping. I cannot wait to come back!
