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!

We didn't stay there, just came for drinks and wine and cheese night. Funky hostel, quite well laid out. Free shot with every drink. Definitely come here if you want to get wasted. Also had a jazz player which was a nice tougcch. Checked prices of private rooms - a bit overpriced.

Were there for lunch, we had chicken with pesto, salade and rice - was excellent! Then some meatballs with tomate sauce, salade and rice which was average. The starter (guacamole) came with the meals and we had to wait around 1.5hours... Big portions anyway and a great place to relax in a great atmosphere, would stay and eat there again!

Cool atmosphere and set-up. Plus the food is awesome if you want to just eat there. Small dorm rooms but you'll barely be spending your time there. If you go to the clubs at night, you have to walk back to the hostel through a small alley which was a bit sketchy but I never had problems. Centrally located and... More

Excellent place, out of the way of the main strip which is nice if you want to relax for a while before returning to the party madness! Fantastic food, incredibly comfortable beds, and helpful staff. Good music in the lounge area too.

We didn't stay here but wished we had, we stumbled upon it going for a walk after dinner and found the awesome pool bar which they sometimes heat at night. Then walked over the bridge and found the Israeli restaurant and the hostel. Stay here if you can! It looks awesome!

Didn't stay there but wish I did. Food is very good and there's a great outdoor lounge with low tables and pillows where you can just hang out. Also a heated pool and a bar, although everything in the bar is quite expensive compared to all other places in San Pedro.
