  • Description

    Description

    Update 06-09-2020: We do not need help for the rest of the year.

    We are a small hostel in the quiet village of Radožda, in the municipality of Struga, in North Macedonia. Within the hostel premises are the following: garden, terrace (overlooking the lake and surrounding mountains), fully-stocked kitchen, common room, five rooms for accommodation, laundry facilities, and two bathrooms. Besides offering guests rest and relaxation in a safe, friendly, and clean environment, we also offer paddle boards, kayaks, bicycles, and fishing gear. In the village, there are beaches, hills for hiking, two markets, a bus stop (to the city of Struga and can stop at other villages along the way), the best fish restaurants in the country, a 13th-century cave church, and the Via Egnatia (2nd century Roman road).
