Tucked away along the calm residential streets of the Patio Bonito neighborhood, a 15-minute walk from Parque Lleras, the Black Sheep is where young international travelers set up for the duration. Run by New Zealander Kelvin Smith, the hostel has a laidback vibe and provides great tourist info for Medellín and onward destinations. There’s a fully equipped kitchen, a barbecue area, two TV rooms, and—most Colombian of all—a hammock-filled balcony. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, most featuring en-suite bathrooms, and some rooms have extra-long beds to accommodate tall foreigners. You’ll need to reserve in advance for the double rooms with en-suite baths, but dorm beds can usually be booked on the spot. There is a minimum 5-day stay during La Feria de las Flores.
