Lazy Sunday BBQ

A travel blog entry by davidandmaria

We were booked on a full day tour to Guatapé that included breakfast and lunch so we only needed a coffee before our pickup. Rafa, our driver and guide for the day, arrived at the hostel at 9am with a really cool customised blue Ford van from the '70s. There was only ourselves and a couple from New York so we could spread out on the seats.

We slept well last night and decided that we'll extend our stay in the Black Sheep Hostel for an extra 2 nights. The football match today between Colombia and Brazil sort of messed up our schedule plus we want to make a day trip to Guatapé.

A trip through the mountains to Medellin

A travel blog entry by davidandmaria

The bus was surprisingly comfortable to sleep in even if it was cold. The AC was cranked up so high it felt like minus 15c although with hoodies on and and a 'permantly borrowed' airline blanket thrown over us, we were fine. We had woken a few times through the night but managed to get back to sleep no problem. By dawn we were up in the mountains …

    We got a double private with en suite bathroom. The bed is allright and the shower is hot in the early morning. Fan and satellite tv provided. Internet not a good signal in room better in common areas. Lots of common areas. Good place to hang out, not a party hostel but can still enjoy a few beers til 1. Good area and close to metro.

    Good hostel,10 minute walk from metro, and short walk to Zona Rosa. Close to large exito supermarket, would recommend. Has ties with Real City tours, so has around 8 spaces for people to join the tour which is really worthwhile

    Nice hostel run by a kiwi guy, great location, good facilities, helpful, friendly staff. Really nice private rooms too with amazing showers. Not a party hostel but really sociable & only 10 mins walk from zona rosa where theres good nightlife.
    They have a local guy start his free walking tour (tips) from there every second day, see below (this is not to be missed)
