Last year my girl and I spent a few days in San Pedro and we stayed at Zoola. The location was excellent, the staff was friendly and helpful and the atmosphere there was very laid back. Our room was clean and nice, great value! The nightlife at the hostel was also quite good.

Stayed in a private room which was very spare and bare but clean with a working toilet if not the closest thing to a hot shower. Still nice staff excellent comfortable common area and pretty good wifi, plus great central location. I'll probably return.

Price were excessive for what I've received, they told me they only have one room with only one bed for Q250 , I accepted it just because I have heard good "things" about it, I pay with cash because they don't accept credit or debit cards witch is totally ridiculous for me, the room was the worst room I've never...

I loved the place.. the common areas and restaurant are very beautiful and perfect for relaxing. The food is just great (and at a very far price) and the Happy hour (4p-11p) just made the experience at the hostel one to remember. Furthermore, there's a pool/bar area with a great view of Lake Atitlan. Just one thing! .. if your...

Didn't mather though cause it was around new years anyway. The restaurant has some great food...

First of all they have quite a small menu but it works out okey. Food was good but not great and prices were acceptable, a little bit more expensive than other places around but not that much. They have a nice small pool and a great view of the lake from the bar. Its a place worth to visit but...

I'm not sure about the whole Israeli-feel-left-out situation or the drug-dealing-in-the-bar situation, or the dirty room sit... Ok... You get it. I'm just a (semi-well-) traveled mom along her 8 year old here. I've personally been here twice before and third time is just as much as a charm as the first and second. I love eating out and probably...

I came here for Shabbat dinner which Zoola hosts every Friday night. The food was amazing and plentiful, it's practically a 4 course meal for 75Q complete with shots at the bar at the end of the night! The staff was so nice and attended to our every need. I highly recommend it!
