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.

Excellent and friendly staff, extra comfy beds, delicious Macedonian pastries for breakfast and super cool vibe. The hostel is beautifully decorated and there's always someone around to talk or chill. I would have no doubt to come back here when I return to Ohrid.

Great location, close to town, but up a short hill, perfect views of the lake from the breakfast terrace. Easy to find and hard to forget. The outdoor spaces, balcony and terrance, as well as the warm lounge and breakfast room make this hostel easy to socialise within. Great hostel breakfast included, good facilities and helpful staff. Ran in a... More

A few nights in the place, such a great hostel with many common rooms to chill. The owner is very attentive to our needs and he help us a lot. The hostel is in the old Town and not to far from all the good soirs of Orhid. You need to go at this place!!!!

There is defenetly a reason why this hostel won a lot of prizes! The price is pretty cheap and the owner one of the most welcoming guy ever. He makes you feel like home in his hostel. Firstly there were noone around when I arrived, since I travelled in the off season. Not a problem at all, couse the owner... More
