    Absolutely loved my stay at Freeflow, it’s the perfect place to relax and unwind. The lake is so relaxing and the hostel offers paddle boards to rent. Gene is the most wonderful host and has thought of everything to make a backpacker’s life easier. The rooms have everything you need, even the power outlets have built in adaptors! The kitchen is an absolute dream, the best equipped kitchen I’ve ever seen in a hostel He’s also an amazing cook and made us the most delicious meal. Stay here!

    If you’re considering staying in Ohrid, stay here instead. Everything in the place is impeccably clean and convenient. The kitchen especially stands out in its functionality and cleanliness. Breakfast, as described in other reviews, is head and shoulders above the typical hostel “breakfast”. Going out on the paddle boards is a blast, and swimming at the nearby isolated pebbly beaches is a pleasure. Totally recommend everything at FreeFlow — make the trek around the lake and enjoy it.

    This place was truly amazing. The village is so friendly, has lovely beaches and good food. Much more authentic than Struga and Ohrid. We had originally planned to go to Struga but was so enchanted by this place that we had to stay! And the hostel just couldn't be any better. By far the best hostel we've stayed at (ever). Gene is an ideal host and goes out of his way to make you feel at home and get the best out of your stay. Can't recommend this place enough.

    The hostel itself is one of the best ive ever stayed in. Superrr clean, spacious, everything is new, FULL kitchen, balconies with the best view of lake ohrid etc! Its known gem for locals with the best fish restaurants in Macedonia. I went paddel boarding/kayaking/bicycling every chance i had! Enjoyed breaking away from crowds of tourists and getting to know the locals who summon us in for coffee or rakija on a regular basis😂 Dont miss jumping off the bridge in struga ! Gene thankyou so much!!

    Gene is the most wonderful human we’ve met on our trip to date. He provided breakfast for the guests (homemade banana bread, fresh cheese from the neighbours and so on) which typically ends at noon, but would bring it back out for us when we had slept in after a night of drinking. The environment and none the less the staff left you feeling like you were truly at home with them; a home away from home if you will. Highly recommended.

    Great hostel overlooking Lake Ohrid. It is actually situated in the town of Radožda. The hostel itself is clean, has comfortable beds and right by your bed is a reading light and a universal socket. There is a terrace where you can have breakfast in the morning and once the yard is finished there will be a place to enjoy the sun. Shower pressure is good and the water is warm. One can easily make trips to Struga or Ohrid. Almost forgot to mention that Gene is an excellent host.

    Although the hostel had slipped into off season as I arrived (literally 3 guests!), I had a great time here. The owner is a great host, and he and the current volunteer loved long political yarns in the kitchen. The hostel was always spotless, there’s a great common space and well-equipped kitchen, and the village itself is beautiful, and a really tranquil place to hang out for a few days. Will be back to stay again in the future :)
