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..

Pretty close to the nightlife; about 10-15 minutes away. The BBQ that they hold here is great and super cheap! Would recommend this hostel to anyone looking so socialise and have a great time. Staff were very friendly and willing to help out

Good option in Medellin in term of position close to Poblado area but in a quiet neighbourhood. The hostel has a nice garden, some common places, TV room, hammocks and other amenities. Rooms could be better and probably cleaning could be better. The staff could also be a bit more collaborative but a part from this it is a pretty... More

Decent enough location for a hostel, but the facilities aren't the best. Thought the staff was ok and there were some good options for eating withing walking distance. Can't put my thumb on it. Kind of good, kind of bad.

we Stayed for two nights and liked The hostel. We had our own Bathroom and everything was Nice and clean. For a hostel it was surprisingly quite at night. The staff was very Helpful and Nice. Wifi was fast. The Kitchen was a bit unorganised with few Cups and Forks. The Kitchen got a bit chaotic at night when everyone... More

I emailed 4 times to make a reservation, both for a room and a 4-week language course. No reply. Then I left a message on Facebook. No reply. Then I booked via their website. Upon arrival they never got it. Staff was terrible, almost seemed annoyed when I told this history. I had a long terrible trip and they were... More

The Black Sheep was the perfect place to stay in Medellin for the international traveler. The group was an eclectic mix of individuals from around the world. The front desk staff were helpful, informative, knowledgeable. The hostel is located near the Metro line that runs through Medellin, and within walking distance to the safe and popular Zona Rosa. The rooms... More
