We stayed at Black Sheep Hostel in Medellin in a private suite on the 3rd floor. We found the room very spacious, with a nice bathroom ensuite. The rooms were serviced everyday and we thought the room was very quiet. The wifi was good, held well for an interview my husband did via Skype. The kitchen was great, the hostel... More

We can't speak to any of the other rooms at the hostel as we didn't see them, but the private rooms on the 3rd floor were amazing. They were clean, spacious, had shelves, tv, AC, in-room wifi, and comfortable beds. There were always people hanging out downstairs, but if you're not into that the private rooms were a great escape.... More

We stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. The room was clean and big enough, although you have to go by stairs for two floors to get there. Location is quite OK, 10 mins to the metro stop and not too far from Lleras. It is better for Youngs than for couples. But still good.

This is a great hostel. We only stayed for one night but it was wonderful. The staff is very friendly and will help you with anything. Rooms are nice and there are a lot of amenities. People who stay here are social and you can make friends to hangout with. The location is good since it's in Poblado and very... More

This is quite a nice hostel, as they go. The staff were friendly and helpful, the tours that can be organised at reception were great (we did Guatape & walking tour). However, although not a party hostel, the acoustics and the set up of the place is such that there is noise 24/7 - the walls are thin so just... More

Had such a great time at this hostel! As soon as I got in, the staff was very welcoming and made me feel right at home. Recommend if you can, staying on a Sunday as well for the BBQ :) I was going to just stay one night and move on to check out some other hostels, but found it... More

Have stayed here many different times. I have always had a private room and they are very reasonably priced. In the lobby there is a wall board that has different tours you can go on. Great place to meet new people. You can cook your own food and there's always a cold beer waiting for you. Sunday BBQ is always... More

The black sheep has lots of nice people, the staff is awesome, remembering your name and everything to do with you the min you set foot. The type of travellers that pass through are a nice mix of fun loving but not heavy partying in the hostel. There are lots of nice communal areas, the TV room is huge, so... More

The third floor private rooms are lovely, clean, new and fresh. The location of the hostel is also excellent very close to Poblado Metro, a short walk to zona rosa, lovely restaurants and an excellent bakery are just one minute walk and a huge supermarket is just 3 blocks away. There are some negatives about this hostel. We had no... More

I read few other posts about this place and the staff. I think I agree with those comments after my experience at this hostel. I will start with some good ones. The hostel is great, not necessarily at the great location. Far from Parque Lleras but closer to the metro station and grocery store. The kitchen is great with many... More
