Stayed here on impulse due to problems accessing our pre booked accommodation elsewhere. Food was really good. Got a double room with bathroom, room was filthy. Clothes left from last guest, filthy towel outside door, no toilet paper, and lots of cigarette butts, and worst the bathroom bin had not been emptied and was nearly full. (And in central america...

We did not stay there cause we did not like the smell of the room, damp... We choose a place called san antonio nearby which was cheaper and better. But a pool and a bar are worth a visit at night, the food looks good too.

Located in a good position to admire the Atitlan Lake with an extended variety of food. I stayed in private apartment with some friends and everything was clean, sorted and nice. The place might not be fancy but has all the amenities required. There are rooms available too. The pool and the restaurant are the right places for many pictures.... More

the staff at Zoola are so so incredibly friendly and kind and helpful, and the restaurant is really fantastic. Good value for money, I had my fair share of breakfasts, dinners and desserts, very impressed! Unfortunately the dorms / lodging is poor. The dorm room was quite smelly, no matter how much it was cleaned there was a funky smell.... More

This is a great place to hang out, eat, drink, read a book or party. The front section restaurant is very chilled out with cushions, great food and helpful staff. In the back there is a bar with a pool looking out over the lake. A great place to drink a cocktail and enjoy the awesome tunes they play here.... More

This hostel was amazing, they had an inexpensive private room and the food here was super good value and taste. The music was great, wifi connections and a lovely pool at the back to relax in. They did our laundry in 5 hours and the reception staff went out of there way to help us. Please go and visit!!

Visited with my girlfriend, saw many israel compadres. You can just sit and relax poolside or in the "zoola" itself. The rooms are small and cheap, which is totally fine. Worth a visit just for the food and drinks, with the cool atmosphere!

Love this place. Unfortunately, it's now entirely populated by Israeli backpackers which isn't so bad except for the fact that they seem to think they own the world and can be loud and annoying at any hour of the night. Other than that, it's amazing and friendly and the Guatemalan staff are incredible.

Spent 3 nights here and had an absolutely great time! The bar staff in particular were amazing. Always up for a laugh and you get a free shot with every drink! Internet is a bit hit and miss but overall everything was great. Definitely get the 'Israeli combo' if you are eating here!
