    This is a really excellent hostel, perfect location and always full of great people to meet and talk with. The staff are also amazing and go out of their way to make sure you’re happy with everything. Hostel has multiple great common areas which are perfect for hanging out and speaking with other backpackers. The free breakfast is also much better than at most other hostels I’ve stayed in. Overall a very ideal place and would definitely recommend.

    Maybe one of the best hostels I’ve stayed at?Fantastic staff who are really welcoming and helpful,everyone staying was like one big family with good social spaces and lots of laughs.Beds have curtains so lots of privacy, big lockers for storing things in rooms,plenty of information about what to do in Ohrid(cycling round the lake if you’re up for a challenge!)only thing is not so many bathrooms so a bit of a wait-but it felt like one big family taking their turn to use it so no problem at all!

    Great hostel to stay at for a visit to Ohrid. The staff are very helpful and friendly in directing you to the best places to visit and eat as well as accomodating any other needs you may have. They gave me a bike to cycle around the town for the day which was cool. The location is 5 minutes walking from the main square which is perfect. There is also an outside area including table and chairs which is a cool spot for socialising with other travellers.

    Lovely hostel with views looking over the lake. Rooms have AC which is good but the WiFi didn’t work in my dorm.

    Nice and very helpful Staff: thank you Nino! The hostel would deserve some freshening up (paint, showers /wc) It’s ok but leaves a certain impression of worn out and not so agreeable.

    I booked the tent, and there was no tent set up. They do have a tent but the bloke in charge talked me into sleeping in the backyard on a makeshift bed. Had to ask him several times for the sheets to make it up. It was actually pretty nice out there, but if you advertise a tent put the thing up I say! The facilities were good, not the cleanest but ok. Helped me to print my bus ticket and was informative when prompted. Location is the big winner!!

    The staff at this hostel were excellent and really made the place. The hostel itself is grubby and rundown, and we did not want to eat the breakfast as the kitchen was so dirty. The location is good but we would not stay again.

    I had a positive stay at Sunny Lake hostel. There were awesome people to socialize with and a chill environment. However, I did find it not as good as other hostels in its facilities. There weren’t organized activities other than the boat trip which staff seemed uninterested in running. Overall though, the people I spend time with is more important to me than the facilities being modern or top notch so I still have a great time.

    Pros: Good location, at least there were lockers and a door code, easy to meet ppl and biggish social area. Cons: Soo grubby and dirty! Tons of dust everywhere, furniture falling apart, found a single dead bed bug on my pillow and also tons of hairs all of different lengths and colours all over my bedding.
