    The best place and a real home! It's my second time here and I hope to come back again. The owner will do everything to make you feel at home and help you however he can, and the location is perfect for enjoying the city or just staring at the view from the balcony. You won't regret coming here :)

    One of the best hostels I've stayed at. The staff is incredible-from helping me figure out how to get to Albania afterwards to an adorable dog in the backyard. Incredible lake views from the balcony too!

    As always my stay at sunny lake was too short. Comfort and location are key factors to choosing a hostel and SLH is perfect in these matters. It's where I'll stay on every trip to Ohrid.

    My friend and I visited Ohrid during a holiday weekend, and our search for accommodation was a frustrating one. We had two different bookings cancelled on us, and we had one webpage booking that fell through. Sunny Lake Hostel was also full! But the were very accommodating to us. They made a space for us in the lobby, and this was a real lifesaver. the owner is a wonderful, kind and caring guy. We enjoyed to talk with him. I would recommend this hostel to anyone.

    Loved staying here while in Ohrid. The owner was very friendly and engaging and genuinely wanted to help out in all aspects from recommendations to transport etc. It is a relaxing space though at first glance a bit outdated but I still really enjoyed my tome. There was a great view over the town. Breakfast provided was great. Would definitely stay again when returning :)
