Sunny Lake Hostel is located in one of the oldest towns in the world, dating back to 4,000 B.C. With that being said, one can find plenty of adventures to delve into. The hostel is comfortably located in the old section of the town; it being a mere 2 minutes walk to a plethora of historical sites and just block from the main shopping strip.
It's affordable, safe, and snuggly centered in a picturesque point of Ohrid, with an excellent view of the mountain.

Also : a washing machine and a dryer, a beer garden, reading lights,floating beds, li-lo, frisbees, petanque, a football, hairdryer, badminton- All for free! Of course, one can just chill out on the hammocks an enjoy the stories and company of fellow travelers or enjoy time to themselves reading one of the many books we have on demand. The staff at the hostel works on request.
Sunny Lake Hostel embodies the Ohrid and Hostel experience with it being the best, the friendliest, the coolest, the most esteemed, the greenest, the tastiest and the number one hostel in Ohrid !

This hostel is brilliant if you’re quite happy doing your own thing! If I were a solo traveller here I would maybe have felt a little unsafe as the door is usually left open and there aren’t really any people around, but the town is small and feels very safe. The rooms are spacious and there is a well equipped kitchen and balcony overlooking the lake. Toni was also really responsive over WhatsApp but there are no on-site staff. The bathrooms are also decent and clean too. The hostel is only a 5 min walk from the centre and a short walk from the bus station.

Don't stay! Shares it's name with another hostel on the opposite side of the road. Most older reviews on HW are not actually about this place, but the other hostel, which I was told used to be located in this property. Seriously lacks atmosphere, front door doesn't lock, no staff around (only meet the owner the day I left), very little toilet paper. Luckily there is security lockers. The owner is friendly, but that doesn't make up for the rest.

Decent location. No one met us but one employee was great at communicating via email. Left money to pay but was unfortunately not taken by an employee. The locals had a party on our balcony into early hours of the night on Sunday but I don't believe they were staying at the hostel. Limited on plug sockets in the room. The entrance door never locked so anyone could enter the hostel/ bedroom although never felt unsafe in area. There were lockers in the room. OK if you prefer a relaxed attitude to travelling.
