This place is my prototype of hostel. Nice facilities, but still feels like a hostel and not a youth centre. Super kind and willing to help staff. Amazing atmosphere. Great location at the heart of the city. Fully equipped kitchen. Balcony, living room, and garden with hammocks. The place is like a magnet, everyone was staying at least a night... More

Everything you need in the centre of Macedonia! Great location and superb breakfast. Enjoyable guys and rooms kept clean at all times. A nice chill out area outside in the small garden. Experts in what to do in the neighborhood, so thanks for the hints! - a guy that's gonna come back for sure

Place the best of the best!!! Amazing atmosphere, people and the owners! The garden, balcony and living room are the most friendly places, especially in the evening! I recommend to take a boat trip organized by the hostel.When you go to Ohrid staying at Sunny Lake is a must!

Everything was horrible except the staff who was extremely helpful and nice. Cons: The moment I stepped into my 4 bedded room, there was a stench and each of us was supposed to have a locker but all of them were occupied. One of the locker has a pair of extremely smelly shoes. The staff was apologetic and said that... More

The hostel has a great vibe and atmosphere. The different balconies are great places to drink a beer and meet new people. The rooms are spacious and have big lockers. Beside that the hostel has a great location, and the staff is very helpfull. I would definitely stay here again.

Clean, nice atmosphere, and gorgeous location right in the old city, with a view of the lake from the terrace. There was a good range of ages there, and everyone blended well. Owner/brothers Nino and Joko take a relaxed attitude towards their business, which makes it more fun for everyone -- you don't even care about the occasional lapses in... More

Sunny Lake Hostel is filled with backpackers and the common area is perfect for socializing. Excellent, friendly hostel staff - it's a place that will make you feel like staying a day more, then another, then another.... Plus points: - Hammocks outside - Filling breakfast

Had a great time at this relaxed friendly hostel last September. Fun common room and the staff were always willing to take us out in the evenings. Make sure you try to do a trip around the lake, the scenery is stunning. Highly recommended

This place is awesome! The atmosphere was great and everyone had a great time! The owners showed everyone what to do and constantly mingled with the guests to ensure everything was going well. The rooms were comfortable, the locker space was the most I've ever seen as there's two lockers per bed. The bathrooms were clean and the terrace has... More

A very nice hostel with nice rooms, breakfast, clean bathrooms and a great view over the town. One minus point was that the staff was during the day very often not available. He was very nice, friendly and helping when he was there, but we had to wait for him many times...
