Other than the owner having excellent marketing skills, ie, name of property and an excellent website site the property itself was pretty much a standard hostel; as in no "black sheep". No complaints really, reasonable clean, a bit spartan with no TV or any place to hang some clothes comfy bed, hot water, internet (except in Room #105, which unfortunately... More

We stayed at this hostel for 7 nights whilst taking Spanish lessons in Medellin. When we first arrived at the hostel the only information we were given was our room number but I'm going to put this down to it being busy at that moment as for the rest of our stay the front of house staff were fantastic, especially...

In this place people from colombia have to pay more than strangers. This is not understandable for me and simply racist. As well I do not understand why the lady that works in the morning had to scream to tell me that.

Having read really good reviews about this place I booked in for 3 days and was a bit disappointed. I stayed in a 12 bed dorm. I was on the top bunk which was so close to the ceiling I couldn't sit up in bed, and had to scramble across horizontally to reach the ladder. Its not in a good... More

I stayed here for 8 nights in a private room with private bath on the 2nd floor at the back. It felt more like a hotel room than a hostel, with a flat screen TV with plenty of channels and great reception. My favorite staff member at the front desk was Juliana...well, they are all really great, but Juliana has... More

Thanks a lot for your comments, especially about the staff. Juliana has been with me for almost eight years and is now the manager of the hostel. If I could, Id have her there 24 hours a day. She is the best. More

Situated a few stops away from the city centre, this is a decent place to crash over few nights, with good showers and very clean. Located in a nice part of Medellin, next to villas and some pretty class hotels, in an quiet part of El Poblado - a good place to out at night for food and drinks. Very... More

A busy hostel full of early twentys, lots of australian and english, i arrived at 8pm. The place felt more like a bar/nightclub with rooms than a hostel. People were drinking outside until after midnight playing music and keeping me awake much longer than i wanted to be. The staff are good though and helpful, prices i thought were a... More

Thanks for your comments. We are generally a hostel with a big mix of travellers. Young and old and in the middle. On that particular night there certainly was a party going on until one in the morning. I apologise for that. It does not happen every day. I have talked to the staff member involved and in the future... More

Great staff really made the stay for me and my group. The staff were very friendly and helped us organise everything we needed, good information on the festival not only on what was on but what was actually worth doing. We had 3 private rooms and usually at hostels you get a bit hit and miss but all 3 of... More

I stayed at Black Sheep a few different times while in Medellin. First, I had a huge private room on the first floor with a shared bathroom. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean. The wifi didn't work in the room, though. Overall, the bathrooms were kept pretty clean. The staff was helpful and friendly. The vibe was pretty... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a comment. We have twenty two private rooms in the hostel spread out over three floors. The ones on the third floor are the newest having been finished in 2013. They all have private bathrooms and DirecTV. For the location the price is pretty competitive. In Medellin at night its recommended to get... More

LOved staying here. IT was close to everytthing and have an amazing vibe. Medillin is an amazing city and the staff were always happy to help! Its a good walk up a steady hill to get to the party area but there is plenty going on up there. Try and escape the big city for a day or 2 to... More

Thanks a lot for the comments. We are in a good location less than ten minutes walk from the metro and ten to fifteen minutes walk up to the Zona Rosa. There are several nice day or overnight trips easy to take from Medellin. My favourites are Guatape and Santa Fe de Antioquia. If the weather is good Rio Claro,... More
