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. One night one... More

Sunny Lake is a great hostel experience- plenty of common areas for chilling, a well-equipped kitchen (plus bbq), and very welcoming hosts. We happened upon this hostel by joining someone we met on the bus from Skopje, and we really got lucky! We did have trouble finding the hostel, as the old town in Ohrid has winding streets that seem... More

This is by no means a modern hostel, in fact it is a little shabby, however the people running the hostel and the general ambiance make it something special. The owner (?) is extremely helpful and seemed to go out of his way to help people and make them feel at home, he welcomed people like they were family taking... More

We arrived at night, after travelling the whole day. They signed us in gratefully and lead us to our room. The breakfast was included in the (very affordable) price and it wasn't anything spectacular but got the days started well. The staff was the most helpful kind and it felt more like a community than a hostel to be honest.... More

Visited over the Easter weekend in a group of 5. The hostel owner is a great guy, knowledgeable about the area and extremely helpful. He is a massive football fan and we enjoyed watching a few of the Premier League games with him in the hostel! The hostel itself is located at the top of a hill in the old... More

I stayed in Sunny lake hostel for one night with four more friends, but it was more than enough for a great impression. Hostel is placed little bit uphill, in the old part of Ohrid, with main street just behind the corner. The interior is spacious, with great terrace to socialize (especially in the summer), nice well equipped kitchen and... More

I spent one day in Ohrid and one night in Sunny Lake hostel and it was just wonderful. This little host in the centre of the old city, is just a little paradise.
