The staff was great, friendly and talkative and bilingual! The hostel is situated in a calm neighborhood but enough close to the center. It seems like there is always parties going on so it is easy to get to know other visitors. Very good kitchen! The hostel feels clean and it has a nice terrace to hang!

You can relax if you want to and you can party if you want to, the perfect mix. Location is great, showers are hot, beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and the...

This hostel was more like a hotel. We had a private room, a big tv and a comfy bed for a great price. The kitchen was well equipped but the coffee was not great - grab a cup elsewhere. It was super safe, had a social vibe but not loud, and the staff were really nice - they made us...

My 3rd floor room with private was basic, with a small, nice bathroom that had good pressure in the shower and lots of hot water. There was a window and the room had a vaulted ceiling with dark wood beams. The room was quiet. There is no elevator which was no problem for me. The hostel had helpful, friendly staff...

During our roundtrip in Colombia, we stayed at the Black Sheep for our stay in Medellín: First of all, the location is great. The metro is pretty close, there are nice places to eat and shop very nearby and a big supermarket is also within walking distance. It's pretty quiet at night and the 24h reception guarantees, there's someone if...

Excellent Hostel, right from the beginning. With your check-in, they give you an excellent map, and show you what is near by, and how to get there; and really everything you need is in walking distance. Hostel is clean, lots of hot water, and good wifi even in the bedrooms. It has good cooking facilities, bbq area, balcony with hammocks....

I went on the tour to Guatapé offered by Rafa. It was truly excellent. In addition to taking us to the beautiful little town and lake, Rafa fed us a superb breakfast and lunch. We did a nice backroads tour on the way to Guatapé and then used the express route to return. We got to listen to great music,...

We left this overpriced party hostel after one night to find a 3*** hotel for almost the same price. The rooms are mufty and may in a good shape 3 years ago. The only good thing is the friendly and helpful staff.
