    After contacting the hostel before my arrival i found out that the owner could collect me from the airport which was a added touch to my stay at sunny lake even before i had set foot in the hostel,on arrival i was welcomed by joko and the existing guests and made me feel really relaxed after my journey to ohrid i was then shown to where i was sleeping and then given a locker and was told everything about the hostel facilities .then i was given a map of the city and shown every place to see

    I absolutely loved Sunny Lake! The manager was absolutely incredible, willing to help with anything and everything you need. I immediately felt at home everything was comfortable and easy. The hostel is exactly where you'd want it to be for anything you're trying to see. I would love to go back.

    The beds are comfortable and towels are provided free of charge. I only used the shower on the top floor but it was spotless, and a lot more spacious than most hostel bathrooms. Upstairs there is a large balcony with a lake view, and a kitchen. Breakfast is provided in the morning. Staff are so helpful, Gyoko gave me a map of places to visit, and recommended restaurants to eat at. He even gave me a lift to the bus station when it was time to leave. I will miss staying here!

    Good location in Ohrid's Old Town. Most of the sites, as well as the center are within a short walk. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and staff are very accommodating to guests' needs. Breakfast is basic but healthy, and complimentary wine and rakija are a nice bonus.

    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 It is a relaxing space though at first glance a bit outdated but I still really enjoyed my tome.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 :)

    The owner is the nicest guy I’ve ever met! Went out of his way to make everything easy for me, can’t thank him enough! Beautiful location with a nice view from the kitchen balcony. Beds were comfy and the place is very quirky and cosy. Will definitely stay here next time I’m in beautiful Ohrid

    Hostel is genuinely filthy - of the dozens of hostels I’ve been to I’ve never seen anything like it. My bed sheets had stains on them - no idea if long term stains or just haven’t been washed since last couple stayed in the room... There’s awards all over the hostel won back in the 2000s but nothing more recent - very telling...
