Essentials were there terms of comfy bed, lockers, reasonable kitchen and good location. However, some bad points were 1) Staff/receptionist was barely there as he was attending to external needs all the time. Not a good impression when everyone is waiting around for him to return. 2) Hot water was non-existent. Cold showers are no fun. 3) Security was questionable - front door didn't lock properly meaning anyone could enter.
good location. friendly and helpful staff. has all the bus and train info for all of Macedonia which is very helpful.
Staff was great, atmosphere was great, but facilities could be better (lockers underneath beds specifically)
This Hostel was amazing and the host was very helpful and SO nice (and funny). The location was very close to everything and the rooms were clean and quiet. There were enough bathrooms, but since there were a lot of travelers the bathroom carpets were sometimes quite damp. However the hostel in general was very clean and tidy and the local breakfast in the morning was a nice option. We definitely recommend Sunny house Hostel for couples as well as groups or single travelers.

Good place with great atmosphere and nice staff.
The best place to stay in Ohrid. Amazing atmosphere, feels like home. The staff was the best part, never met kinder and happier people. Loved every minute at SunnyLake!
There wasn't hot water for the 4 days we were there. Staff we not interested in solving the problem.
This was definitely the best hostel i ever stayed. The hosts are the best and always caring for you. Thanks to everyone that runs this place, it was so great to stay there. Greetings from Argentina!
One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Immediate home feeling the boys that run it are the best! A lot of fun, comfortable. Didn't want to leave. I'll be back!
good locatiom... staff r ok.... breakfast is average... cramped rooms no air con in 8 bed dorm... wifi not good in rooms...it was ok
Great hostel! Located in heart of Ohrid. Staff very friendly an helpful. I spent very good time here.
Normally I´m too lazy to write a review, but these guys definetily deserve one! Stay here! Djoko and Nena are the BEST Hostel Hosts you will ever meet. They do everything to make you feel like staying with friends. I stayed for 5 Nights and could have stayed a month easily. Ohrid and the Lake is a fantastic place to spent a few days or weeks. You will love it. I promise. :)
Sunny Lake was so welcoming when I arrived and they introduced me to some other english who had arrived on the same flight as me on the first night so I wasn't alone. The hostel was great, lots of communal areas to drink and chat and the night outs were awesome. Breakfast was average but everything in town is so cheap anyway it doesn't matter. Very knowledgable staff and lots of fun. Met some incredible people and had the best week, thank you sunny lake!

Staying at Sunny Lake Hostel was fantastic. The hostel staff are excellent, there's a nice deck on the top floor and also comfortable space out in the yard to hang out. It's a good location for exploring Ohrid, and the staff will tell you all the best places to go and things to see.
We had a great stay at the sunny lake hostel. Especially the staff was really nice and helpful :)
It is a busy hostel a bit overcrowded in the bedrooms but helpful staff.
Nice chilled out hostel. enjoyed my stay. the brothers running it were helpful and friendly.
Sunny lake really feels like home, and it did so after day one. The two managers are brothers. They are really fun, sweet and trustworthy. As managers they couldn't do more for you. The location is absolutely amazing! I couldn't think of anywhere I would rather be in Ohrid. The place is clean and secure. Each bed has a locker. Breakfast was out each day from 7:15-10:00 ish (maybe 10:30?) there were traditional Macedonian savory pastries, juice, milk and cereal. Highly recommended!!
