    Lovely friendly staff. Variety of spaces to relax. Wonderful showers (where you can actually pick a temperature - unheard of in Colombia). Cleanest hostel I've seen - but they could probably chill out on the floor cleaner as my room smelt so strongly on the first day. Location is also a bit far away from supermarkets or restaurants, so solo females might prefer to be more in the centre so it's easier to do things after dark like pop to the shops. But Uber is cheap and easy too.

    Very friendly, clean and spacious. staff members are unbelievable. Located in a good neighbourhood, safe and close to the nightlife area. First hostel where I have come across with a big tv area with comfortable couch. The entire place is spic n span.

    Black Sheep is a relaxed hostel, and lots of space. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the place is clean. Looks like they're doing a few renos right now. The bathrooms on the bottom floor are OUTSTANDING, whereas the 2nd floor ones could use a little TLC. The bed was comfortable, and facilities were adequate, but I found it to be loud at night from the other travelers slamming doors. All things considered, as far as hostels are concerned, it's definitely a solid place to stay.
