The staff were completely lovely at the black sheep and very helpful. The atmosphere was really great. The place LOOKS quite clean however I had bugs in my locker and woke up with bites on my arm. There is a great kitchen available and a plenty of nice chill spots, and it’s in a very good location but I won’t return due to the bugs.

Amazing hostel with such a great vibe for meeting people. The hostel itself is safe, but a 10 minute walk from el poblado. Just a note for future travellers to Uber and not walk this route at night as it can be quite dangerous

I especially loved the kitchen, always clean, and had everything you could hope for when it comes to preparing your own food while traveling. They even had a blender and microwave. The hotel was always very clean. Good social atmosphere. Staff were excellent.
