Right at the center of the city just 1 minute walk and you are right at the old town. Perfect place to hang around and meet other people. The city tour is one of the best i have ever been to. The owner Djoko is super crazy cool guy that everyone must meet and party with him..

Ohrid is a wonderful place and you can (and you will) spend many days here just relaxing and enjoying the city and this hostel is the perfect place for it. The owner is incredibly chill (and funny as well) and the whole place is great. Cozy, clean, great wifi, great rooms, great view, many amazing common areas, balconies, living room,... More

This hostel is in the heart of old Ohrid. All sights are within easy walking distance. The breakfast was tasty and filling and a great way to start the day. Ohrid is full of rentals but for location, atmosphere and value it's hard to beat this place.

It seems like a lot of visitors have the same problem as we had: you arrive after a long journey and your reserved room is not free. Ok, it can happen, but during our stay we found out that we hadn't been the only ones. A guy from England even had to spend the night outside because absolutely no room... More

This is one of my favorite places on earth! I only booked three nights here and ended up staying five! Lovely friendly helpful owners, great little garden with hammocks, great atmosphere all round. I had most amazing time in this place meeting some awesome people. I wish I could have stayed longer. Thanks Goyko & Nino!

This is one of the best hostels I've ever had the fortune of staying in. It might not be the most spick and span, luxury design, modern place in the world but it's got such a good atmosphere going for it. At least half of the guests were extending their stay here! Really nice garden area with sofas, hammocks etc,... More

Pros: comfy beds and pillows, good locker storage for big bags, social atmosphere. Cons: stayed 3 nights and tried twice a day everyday for a hot shower but no luck, told the manager twice but no interest in fixing it - just pointed to the thermostat and said 'it should be hot'. Ok! Very helpful. BF woke up with bites... More

My friends and I checked into this hostel only intending on staying three nights - we ended up staying five! As there were a wonderful group of people staying at the time and no one wanted to part after only a couple of days of knowing one another! The atmosphere of the hostel is great and the staff are extremely... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Sunny Lake hostel. The owners were really nice and it's a real social place so easy to make new friends. Super comfortable beds and the Hostel has a lounge with PS4, and also the outside area has hammocks. The Hostel is close to all the major attractions in Ohrid. Everything you need in a hostel.
