The Blacksheep Hostal - Hostel Medellín - Colombia

This New Zealand-owned party hostel is an excellent choice for travelers looking for a laid back, social atmosphere. Room options include four-, six- and eight-bed dorms as well as private rooms with both en-suite and shared bathrooms. The owner, Kelvin, knows a great deal about all things Colombian and will gladly dish out advice. The hostel’s hammocks add to the relaxing vibe, and there is a communal kitchen and TV room with an extensive DVD collection for gathering. Every Sunday, the Blacksheep staff cooks up a delicious BBQ on the outdoor patio. Private Spanish courses ($9 per hour) on the hostel’s balcony can be arranged.
