I had an amazing time here. Workers are willing to help and they made me feel really confortable. The hostel is such a singular and authentic place! Also it's clean and well situated. I would just recommend it to anyone! I'll come back! Hasta pronto!

Casa Sweety, it is a lovely place to stay with a clean environment, cozy rooms with A/C, pool in am open ceiling room, terrace for private relaxation, and my favourite thing was to experience such amazing service by the staff. It was a nice treat waking up to fresh coffee or tea, and a freshly made breakfast to start the... More

I stayed at Casa Sweety for a week while touring Cartagena and the surrounding area and it was the perfect base for my friend and I to explore the city. Sweety is a small boutique hotel with a handful of rooms, a small shared pool, and communal breakfast table area in the centre of the Getsemani neighbourhood (it's literally steps... More

I stayed at Casa Sweety for a week at the end of February. The staff were all very pleasant and accommodating. Carolina was very professional and helped me organize a few excursions. The other lady that works the desk when Carolina isn't there (sorry, I can't remember her name) was so friendly and always a pleasure to have conversation with.... More

A beautiful small boutique hostel in a lively neighbourhood full with restaurants and bars and close to old historic city. Including a nice little swimmingpool to relax. Delicious breakfast served by Friendly staff who make your stay even more worth!

This was the first time I was ever disappointed by a place picked from the trip advisor reviews and we were really really disappointed!! There was one review which I should have listened to which sums it up- this is a HOSTEL not a hotel. The pool area looked a lot nicer in the photos but the reality was much... More

This place is fantastic! The staff were very attentive to my needs. Rooms are really clean and nice. They offer different breakfast varieties everyday so you won't get tired of eating the same thing every morning for the duration of your stay. The hotel is in a good location as there were popular landmarks around like Cafe Havana. My favorite... More

I picked Casa Sweety because of the raving reviews about the staff. It was then very disappointing when one of the staff members tricked us. When we arrived there, we had no idea about local surrounding, etc so we asked Carolina about recommendations for budget restaurants since we were on a tight budget. She recommended one restaurant that she claimed... More

We stayed at Casa Sweety for 3 nights to begin our Colombian adventure and we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. Laura, the receptionist (not sure of her title!) made our stay the best it could be ... giving us advice on where to go, what to see, and how to get there. She happily booked our bus... More
