the title pretty much sums up Zoola. We arrived in San Pedro and were able to reserve a dorm room at Zoola the day of. It was located right on the water with great views of the lake and easy access to restaurants and bars of San Pedro. We ended up hanging out in the bar/restaurant area of Zoola at...

Zoola has yummy Israeli/Lebanese food in a lovely relaxed setting, the bar area also has a pool overlooking the lake which was incredible. We had a private room with two double beds which was basic but clean. Our only problem was the staff, they seemed confused at all of our requests, we also bought tickets for a boat party organised...

I have been to Zoola many times, though never to stay over. The pool area is very fun to hang out at-a great day time spot. I have been there twice at night and it is very mellow, barely anyone there. Their food is amazing. The service is extremely slow, but the food has been delicious every time I go....

They did not give our deposit back and then ignored all attempts at contact. Good was delicious but over priced. Dishonest business that is mismanaged. Wifi didn't work for over 24 hours. The staff really don't seem to care. The cooks were friendly and great but the bar staff were rude and don't seem to like guests.

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...

I spent new years over in San Pedro and arrived in Zoola's late at night. Only room they had left was a triple room which was reasonable priced, only pity was that it was right next to the bar which was pumping all day! 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...
