Great location close to poblado station so you can access the metro easily 10 min walk to zona rosa.. And 5 to the exito Friendly english speaking staff who we're amazing!! Juliana is an absolute Colombian goddess (think Sofia vergara) who was amazing personable and remembers everyone's name. Clean, quiet and comfy! :)

Black sheep is a good option in the popular poblado neighborhood. Kelvin, the owner, is helpful and I've heard his wife is a great Spanish teacher although she has a packed schedule. We stayed in a private double room, the room was comfy and clean, the shared showers were great and clean as well. The kitchen is large but guests... More

If you go with the idea that this is a hostel and not a hotel it will exceed your expectations. Friendly and helpful staff, lots of communal areas to meet people, great service to go on tours, fast laundry. We got to stay in three rooms, the private rooms on the third floor are very nice, very comfortable beds, cable... More

The beds are really good, its nice and clean rooms and a friendly staff. The kitchen have everyting you need, and for the first time ever i could find knifes that were sharp enough to cut anything. Its also easy to go to the metro and walking-distace to shops, bars and resturants.

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights with a friend and we all had a great time. We stayed in a six bed dorm which was really comfy and didn't feel cramped. The kitchen was great so we took advantage of it and cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner there. The showers had hot water which was amazing.... More

The Black Sheep is in a great location close to a huge supermarket and some malls. The room was nice and spacious but didn't have a garden view which it said in the description .The staff was super friendly, especially the blond Colombian girl. There were several routers for the WiFi but weirdly we couldn't connect to the one closest... More

We ended up staying for 5 nights because we loved the city so much and the hostel was exactly what we needed. It hasn't got a crazy party vibe like others in the city but it was very sociable and we met some lovely other travellers. The hostel put on a hangover busting BBQ on Sunday nights which is delicious... More

The hostel is nice, with many rooms (i'd say about 30 or so) and various areas to chill out and socialise. It's in a quiet neighbourhood but with relative easy access to public transport. The rooms are ok but not outstanding and bathrooms are clean with hot showers. What I found odd was that while working late on my laptop... More

Good location - if you want to be close to the metro station and a big supermarket, in a quiet area. Hot shower and best shower head! But the place could be cleaner. I don't think the bathroom surfaces have been cleaned in the two days I was staying there..
