We had a very positive experience at Black Sheep. The staff was extremely helpful and hooked us up with fun things to do in Medellin. Rooms were very clean and seemed more like a hotel than a hostel. The area around Black Sheep was safe and within walking distance from the Metro, restaurants, grocery store, mall, etc.

We liked our stay. Good area for going out / and its safe. There are many areas for hanging out in the hostel. Nice and clean rooms. Helpful staff. There's a supermarket very close and the metro is 10 minutes walking.

This hostel was brilliant. The rooms and the inside of the hostel were so nice that it felt more like a hotel. The location is excellent and the staff are very helpful and keep the hostel very clean and secure. It's a big hostel so you can meet a lot of people. The only bad thing I can possibly say... More

Very good hostel in Medellin (Poblado zone) - about 10 min walk from the metro and the grocery store. The shared room I was in was slightly crowded but the room was clean. The lockers are outside the rooms so that does free up some room space. Bathrooms were pretty clean, as well. Wifi was great in the main areas... More

The Black Sheep is a great place to stay in Medellin. Walking distance to supermarket, metro station and nightlife. The hostel is clean and has also a huge TV where you can hang out and just relax a bit after a long night out or a sightseeing tour. The staff is helpful, the beer is cheap and the outdoor areas...

Great people, great space and close to everything you need. This was a great place to meet other travellers but also allowed our quiet time and great nights sleep. The day tours are excellent. The wifi is good and the laundry service was great. I can't really fault this place but if I had to make 1 suggestion is that... More

I stayed longer in Medellin than I wanted, also because of this lovely hostel. The atmosphere is very social and relaxing, the staff absolutely amazing (especially Juliana) and the facilities include a nice roof top terrace, a fully equipped kitchen and a great TV / movie area. The walking tour they promote is a must do and the Guatape tour... More

Moved here after having a bad experience at another hostel. Had a really good time and a really nice welcome. Staff are super helpful and the tour info is great. Stayed in a private room and it was really nice. TV, comfy bed, hot shower and nice couch. The common spaces are really good and security is tight. Can bring... More

Good location being close to the metro station and the restaurant areas. Juliana on reception was amazingly friendly and helpful, she even remembered our names and was bright and bubbly every morning. Vibe generally was very chilled and friendly. Kitchen was pretty pokey given the number of people trying to use it and the shared bathrooms were definitely in need... More
