    One of the best hostels I have stayed at. Tony was so warm and welcoming and was always giving us good tips and advice on what to do in the city. The hostel itself was small but you still had plenty of opportunities to meet people. Everyone hangs out on the balcony / terrace to chat and look at the incredible view. In terms of location - the main square is a 2 minute walk away, so so convenient.

    Comfy beds, mostly functioning kitchen and a relaxed atmosphere. A bit chilly in the colder weather, but luckily most of the bedrooms have heaters.

    Toni was nice and the hostel was fine, but there was much upkeep on the cleaning (I cleaned out the sink one morning) and the bathroom floors weren’t good. There isn’t really an atmosphere and therefore the frustrating things about the hostel were evident. Not anything bad about it, but there are many long term local residents and so not as many travelers cycling through.

    This is the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. No staff on site to check in, there is only limited wifi on the first floor (of three) and place is not clean. I raised this with the hostel owner (who I had to contact to get into the place) and he did nothing. Bins were not changed, dishes piled up in the kitchen. The owner would show up at night to take check in cash and hand out toilet paper. Please avoid for a nice stay in Ohrid!
