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

The Hostel is quite nice, the bedrooms are good, well equiped and clean. The staff are very nice and worming. They have a lot of options for The guest, but The kitchen isn't nice. The Hostel só as The kitchen stay crowded and isn't clean or orginized. Its realy needs some improvement!

Thanks for your comments. We have been pretty busy lately and after building the third floor it seems like our kitchen is not quite big enough. I will work on making better use of the large space we do have. Most of the time the kitchen is pretty empty but sure in the evening everyone seems to want to cook... More

Had a private room which was more like a hotel room. Was very impressed with the value for money. The staff were incredibly friendly as well and were more than willingly to help with travel plans and anything else that popped up. Great, safe location too. Wifi connection not always great in the rooms though although had no problem with... More

We stayed five nights in a double ensuite room. Good location in a quite residential area, about a 15 minute walk to the bars in El Poblado. The walk is safe and didn't bother us. Rooms were very clean and beds comfortable. It's a good place to meet other travellers without being a party hostel. There isn't a bar but... More
