Kelvin and his crew take every opportunity to make sure all patrons are comfortable. Probably the thing I liked the most, other than front desk attendant Mary, was the tours they offered. Every tour was first class, especially Rafael's tour to Guatape. No one can match his charisma, energy, and sweet-heartedness like this guy. I'm in sales and appreciate the... More

I've stayed at black sheep a few times and have always found it consistent. It is not quite a party hostel but at the same time there is always someone having a beer. There are plenty of common areas to hang out in, and they are away from the rooms so noise isn't a problem. The hostel is kept clean... More

After getting stuck in Panama and unable to contact Black Sheep to say I would be delayed for a night, the good folks at the hostel were able to hook me up with another room. The easy access to Medellin's world class metro & walking distance to nightly fun in the Poblado district made it a great place to explore... More

Friendly staff (also all but the night "guard" speak decent to perfect English), clean rooms and showers, comfortable beds, good WiFi in the entire building, nice places for lunch and drinks nearby, fridges with drinks are always stocked, fast laundry service (make sure they don't wash your clothes too hot though).

I stayed here for a couple of nights and it was easily accessible by public transport. They have a lot of facilities - tv room, kitchen, vending machines and public use compters. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean with hot water. However, there was zero room for my bag in the room I was in and the... More

We were welcomed by Julianna and her very helpful, friendly staff on our first day in Colombia. A great start to a wonderful trip in a beautiful country! Our room was spacious, clean and comfy with a private bath, reasonably priced, on the second floor in the back with a view of the quiet street below; a lovely, safe residential... More

For a big hostel this place is really clean, tidy and has great service. Guatape tour is awesome and the staff go out of there way to give you great information. Although it's big, it's not a party hostel but also has a good social vibe. A great mix indeed!! Would stay again.

Stayed a week in a private room on the ground floor. The first night had a unusual heat wave, our room was like an oven. Asked the Kiwi guy for a fan and wasn't a problem. I found all the staff really friendly and very informative of the whole area. The free coffee in the morning will always win points... More
