In 8 months of travel, this remarkable hostel is the closest thing to home that we can recall. The staff were incredibly attentive and the hostel harbors a relaxed sociable environment. We met many friends here and it was so good we went twice. The hostel competition in Medellin is really hotting up but this is by far the best... More

Incredibly kind and helpful staff, and convenient location 5 minutes walk from the metro and 5 minutes walk from the exito supermarket. Clean beds and rooms, lots of communal areas and a well equipped kitchen. I've stayed here twice while in Colombia and highly recommend it

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Black Sheep Hostel a couple days at the beginning of our trip in Colombia. We took the reference in the lonely planet (this year's edition) and we didn't regret that choice. The place is super clean, calm but full of life in the same time. There's a lot of chilling spots and it... More

We only spent one night here but would have stayed longer if we'd found it sooner! A nice big hostel which feels more like a hotel. The rooms were clean and well furnished with no air con but a big ceiling fan did the job of keeping is cool at night. The staff on reception were very helpful, printing off... More

This hostel is realy nice. We had a private room. The people who work there, including the owner are very helpfull and mega nice. The area is nice and has a lot to offer. We have seen a lot form Medillin and believe that this is by far the best area to stay.

This hostel is in the Manila neighborhood, about a 10-15 minute walk from Poblado. It is not too noisy, but it did seem rather crowded at times. The issue is that, while there are many spaces for hanging out, there are just soo many people at the hostel. It is a very large hostel with three different floors of rooms.... More

We stayed in the 10 bed dorm for 3 nights and were very comfortable. The rooms all seemed large and clean and there were plenty of bathrooms. The tv room is great for relaxing in the evening and there are lots of outdoor areas to chill out and meet other travellers. The kitchen is very well-equipped and the staff were... More

I must say the Spanish classes, were excellent. The time spent with Yadi was enlightening, because she understands of the culture of Medellin so the discussions were fascinating. I also thank her for helping me translate my poem into Spanish. Book early so you can get a spot on her calendar.
