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

We had a very positive experience at Black Sheep. The staff was extremely helpful and hooked us up with fun things to do in Medellin. Rooms were very clean and seemed more like a hotel than a hostel. The area around Black Sheep was safe and within walking distance from the Metro, restaurants, grocery store, mall, etc.

We liked our stay. Good area for going out / and its safe. There are many areas for hanging out in the hostel. Nice and clean rooms. Helpful staff. There's a supermarket very close and the metro is 10 minutes walking.

This hostel was brilliant. The rooms and the inside of the hostel were so nice that it felt more like a hotel. The location is excellent and the staff are very helpful and keep the hostel very clean and secure. It's a big hostel so you can meet a lot of people. The only bad thing I can possibly say... More
