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

Though this hostel is small (during our stay it was overbooked and people had to sleep in hammocks or in the reception) I would still highly recommend this hostel to anyone! The staff were so helpful and kind - they took us out in the evenings to the best places and fully organised onward travel! There is a well equip... More

There are many options for lake ohrid and if you are on a budget you can get it cheaper than this place but a cheap apartment might not provide you with all the necessary information needed and the brothers (owners) know what a backpackers need. From bus schedule, prices, maps, bicycle, laundry, laundry area, very well equipped kitchen, decent bed,... More

First things first, the beds at this hostel are like clouds! I didn't want to get up whenever I had a lay down! We really enjoyed our stay at this place, its location is excellent, it is clean and has a really good kitchen for cooking. Every room comes with huge lockers for added security as well.
