My brother and I stayed here two nights and the room had a bunk bed in it and a dresser, the mattresses were nasty and the room smelt like mold! Really badly, by the second night I got a fever and sore throat , not sure if it's related, but after switching hostels I got better within a day, I... More

Our private room had bedbugs. My wife got bitten. The bedbugs seem to like her. The room was OK (not great) otherwise. Public areas are great, food was wonderful, service OK. If they can clean up the bedbugs I would recommend this hotel for people who put little value on the room and a high value on the public amenities... More

The chill area in the hostel is arranged in a way that you don't really socialize with others. Small tables, with carpets around them, which makes people sit in closed groups. Wouldn't recommend it to anybody who is traveling by himself. I left the hostel pretty quick due to the fact that the rooms were infested!!! (never seen anything like... More

Well located, cool music all day long with an active bar and gacuzzi on the roof. I had a great time. The owner is young and nice and the prices are good. Above all the rooms are clean and the bads are comfortable

The slight disappointment for us was that the pool was being refurbed. However, we had a drink and some food and both were good. Falafel, cauliflower and some dips to go with. All homemade and all lovely. A really chilled atmosphere too, just lazing on the lounge pillows.

Zoola is a class act of a hostel. Although the rooms are very basic, they completely serve their purpose. Zoola's chill out areas are second to none, with a chill-out lounge style cafe which serves awesome Israeli style food and smoothies - although you might have to wait a while to be served! Beyond here, there is a wicked bar... More

We enjoyed our stay here. We all thought the food was excellent and the large chill area is a great place to chat and relax, especially if it decides to rain. The pool and bar at the back are also lovely, with great views of the lake and a nice deck to sunbath on. It's just a shame the lake... More

Unfriendly and unhelpful staff. They told us they had no dorm beds so I ended up sharing a quadruple by the bar area. Later that night i found out they did have dorm beds, but it was too late. They blasted music from 12pm - 1am, and they were doing some kind of construction at 7am the next morning! Further,... More

I came to try the falafel and was really disappointed. Whilst it was edible, it certainly was not anything special and for 60q with a beer I think I could have eaten better elsewhere. Yes, service was a little slow but that does not phase me if the food makes up for it.

A well laid out hostel; the pool and bar have an amazing view of Lake Atitlan, then there is the chill out area, the restaurants and the private rooms and dorms towards the back of the property. Extremely comfortable beds in both the privates and dorms (as I've slept on both) and the food is tasty as well. Top choice... More
