This is the most popular hostel in Ohrid-first one opened in the city. Staff and location make this place worth a stay. Rooms are basic but there is a nice terrace on the roof. When you get fed up with cheese pastry for breakfast ask for eggs and vegies and you will get it - just like we did. Two... More

This is the best hostel in Ohrid...you are in the center for 2 minutes. Everything is clean and every day you have a fresh breakfast from the bakery. You are free to have breakfast, while you looking at the lake and the sun is above.

Sunny Lake Hostel is an incredible hostel located in the Old Town of Ohrid. The hostel has a great vibe with AMAZING staff! The common room is perfect for nights of drinking and getting to know other travelers - and the sound does not spread to the rest of the hostel, guaranteeing a good night sleep! Everything was clean, and... More

Busy hostel, but that was a good thing. Facilities are good, shared areas for meeting other travellers. Right in the centre of town and the owner knows how to be a decent host - I'd come back for sure. Very helpful and ideal for backpackers.

Great Hostel with great staff! The Hostel is placed very nicely in the centre off the town, with short walking distance to all important spots of the city. The Hostel itself is very nice, the rooms are clean, big and with good beds and lockers. The Bathrooms are small, but clean and functional. The Terasse at the kitchen is great,... More

We stayed in the hostel for two nights and it had a very social atmosphere with a big backyard (with a pet turtle roaming around), common room on the ground floor and a balcony beside the kitchen on the top floor. We met other travelers that stayed for 5 or 6 nights there. Slight downside is that as people hang... More

We felt very welcome when we arrived at this hostel - we really enjoyed the mood in the hostel. We had a room for four people, and the lockers under the bed are really good. A few reviews were writing about cold water in the showers, but I can not confirm this - if there is once cold water, just... More

Maybe it has good potential and others had a more positive stay but my friend and I were less than pleased. After a LONG journey we arrived to find out that our booking of a 4 bed dorm wasn't possible. Instead we had a bed in an 8 bed dorm and the other in a 5 bed dorm, with very... More
