    Couldn’t leave Black Sheep, spent 9 nights!! Great atmosphere and facilities, with tours running everyday. Rooftop is good for drinks, and tv room is super comfy with Netflix. Dorms are spacious and clean. Bathrooms are super modern. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Thanks Black Sheep!

    I like this hostel, have stayed here before and will stay again in the future. This time I stayed in a private room with my own bathroom. The shower was excellent and the bed comfy. The room was spacious and own tv was a nice plus. The hostel serves good coffee in the morning. The staff is really friendly. Peaceful neighbourhood within walking distance from the El Poblado metro station and Exito. Wifi does not work well in the room, that’s the only improvement I wish for.

    Stayed here for about two weeks in total and really made my Medellin experience. A great social hostel, lots of common areas, drinks are cheap and you can bring your own booze if you want. Bathrooms always clean and hot water in the showers. Staff were all amazing especially Dan and Carlos and the lovely lady that works the morning shifts.

    Really helpful staff who organised a brilliant graffiti tour of Comuna 13. They also helped us sort our plans for going to watch football and getting to Guatape. Lots of communal spaces and very well equipped kitchen. Only downside is it's a little far from the bars and restaurants in Zona Rosa, and a bit of a walk from the station. Also, they could have changed our towels and bin during the 3 days we were there.

    I think it depends on the person. As I’m not a very big party person, I didn’t enjoy this hostel. It is very crowded, loud, people party a lot and they’re often inconsiderate of others sleeping. The sheets were clean and overall cleanliness is not bad, but as many people stay there it gets dirty very fast. Staff is great though! Very helpful and friendly. If you are booking 12 person dorm, know that it is in the basement and there’s also smell of mold in this room. The location is very good.
