I planned to stay in Ohrid for 2 days but I ended up staying for a week, and it was mainly because of that hostel (although the town is beautiful too!) The hostel has a great location, rooms are nice, bathrooms are clean, there is a kitchen if you want to cook, a terrace upstairs if you want to talk... More

Such a great hostel, the atmosphere is amazing and everyone is really friendly. The brothers who run the hostel are incredibly helpful and really friendly. They'll take you out on their boat or for a night out in town. Everything is really relaxed, a lovely place to spend a few nights.

I've stayed two nights at this hostel and was totally worth it! Greatly located in town, close to the main street and spots. Comfortable beds and clean rooms. However, the kitchen may be quite small for the amount of guests permitted. They serve breakfast every morning and offer help with the sightseeing and activities to do during the day. Absolutely...

This is a social hostel popular with young backpackers. It was recommended by numerous travelers who loved their time there. For me it was fine, had everything I needed at a budget standard. The friendly and helpful owner offers daily boat tours on the lake. He seems to go above and beyond to give his guests a good experience. People... More

This hostel has a lively, welcoming atmosphere. The common spaces (such as the living room and outdoor balconies) are conducive to meeting other travelers, and the owner, Gyoko, is so kind and sweet. The location is in the old town. That said, I removed one star because there was only 1 bathroom on my floor, and it was often occupied;... More

Gyoko is so amazing. Attentive to everyone's needs, always makes sure you're taken care of and happy. Loves sports! & He has a pet tortoise Petra. So cute. Small place but many areas to relax and get to know other travellers. Close to the lake, monasteries, shopping etc. Didn't plan on going to Macedonia at all during my trip, but... More

I didnt stay at Sunny Lake Hostel but the owner is a buddy of my friends from Ohrid - GREAT GUYS! We had a Barbeque there one night and watched the Champions -Leage Match Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid there. All the people there are super friendly. I really miss Lake Ohrid and the Town of Ohrid.

Very popular place among backpackers on the Balkan. So it is nice to meet other travelers. It is possible to rent a bicycle, but rather expensive (not for people on a low-budget). Staff was correct and helpful.
