Booked into this hostel as the main ones in the centre were fully booked. Staff were very friendly. Appearances somewhat dilapidated in areas. Appears tired and run down. No breakfast provided. Good communal spaces! Nice sociable vibe. Although didn't get to try, BBQ on Sundays. Reasonably priced. Felt the need to move on from the hostel as it was easier...

I actually stayed here twice on both my visits to Medellin, and both times were brilliant. It has a great location in El Poblado - close to the Metro and close to the Zona Rosa and some malls. It is fairly quiet too unlike other Poblado hostels so you can sleep well and also party nearby. It has a good...

After a long bus ride this was the exact place we needed. In a great area of Medellin this hostel really is like a hotel. Stayed in a double room, which had a tv and bathroom. Very nicely decorated and quiet for a hostel. The kitchen is a little small so get in at the right times. Staff are friendly...

Black Sheep is a really nice hostel with a good atmosphere. It is clean, with a great kitchen and good social areas (courtyard, terrace and tv room). The beds were comfortable, the location was pretty good (less than 10 minute walk to the metro which could take you anywhere) and the staff were friendly. The only issue was the bathroom....

its a great hostel - clean, well taken care of, and super nice staff. But the real gem of this place is Yadi, the owner's wife, who offers private spanish classes in a small classroom in the upstairs of the hostel. I have taken many language classes with many teachers, and Yadi is by far the best. She is a...

I stayed here three or four times over the period of a few months. Very convenient to metro line, so close to everything in that regard. Far enough away from the mayhem of party town,but only a casual 10 - 15 min walk. Chilled out and very helpful owner/staff. I recommend to everyone.

A nice, clean and relaxed hostel with loads of communal space. The neighbourhood is quiet, located a 7min walk to the metro (10mins to the centre) and a 15min walk to the main nightlife of El Poblado. Staff are helpful and all have very good English.

I had a great time at Black Sheep. I originally booked for 2 nights but ended up staying 7. The hostel has an amazing location around 7 minutes walk to the metro, 5 minutes to a massive supermarket, and 15 minutes to the nightlife area. Staff are all very friendly and the hostel has a very relaxing, chilled out vibe....

I showed up in Medellin with only a few words in my vocabulary and took classes with Yadi for just over a month. She was always extremely energetic and helped me advance my language rapidly. I took a 100% oral language test immediately following our last week together and scored Intermediate-High! Huge progress in a very short time. Highly recommended...
