Stayed in the private room. Never seen anything like it: spacious, extremely impressive, Classic furniture, lots of space. Great location. This is really something! Helpful staff. Allergics beware: The hostel has a cat crawling all over the place. Literally.

This is the coziest place in Odessa. Right in the center and near the train station, it's a good vibe with cool people. Clean and cozy. I would definitely stay again. It's also THE place to meet internationals from all over the world.

I've been traveling around Europe especially and this is one of my favorite hostels! The kitchen and bathroom are ideal places to make new friends. The dormitory where I stayed is always quiet and dark, so I know I will sleep well at any time (this can be a problem in some hostels). See you soon!

Stayed here couple of nights with a group of friends for New Year's eve celebrations. The hostel people make you feel welcome and are very helpful. Building outside is being renovated and at first sight looks like a mess. Once inside the place is clean and charming with spacious rooms, high ceilings and wooden floors. Great place to stay!

I had a 2 night stay here and was even alllowed to leavy my luggage during the next day to leave in the evening. It is a safe place plus central if you want to explore the city. They also offer tours. It is one of those typical "we have a flat, we run a hostel" hostel, with 3(4?) rooms... More

I stayed at the Babushka grand hostel for just shy of a month this October and has a blast. The staff were helpful and kind and I consider myself fortunate to have lucked out overall. The hostel itself is beautiful, with a huge chandelier hanging in the common room that gives you the sense that you are on the titanic... More

We stayed in a private room in this hostel and our stay was perfectly adequate. In general, the hostel was well equipped and clean, although the shower in the hostel is really tricky and a couple of times I could only take a cold shower. Also, there is just one shower for the whole hostel, on the day we checked... More

Excellent location, near to Railway Station. It is a big flat with 2 rooms. I stayed in a room where were 4 beds. My bed crashed 2 times, don't move yourself in that bed. Free lockers are provided (deposit fee). Stuff is very helpful by sharing information about a city.

We have a beautiful hostel that looks like a pre-revolutionary aristocrat's apartment with chandeliers, gilded ceilings that are 4 1/2 meters high and carpets. It is three blocks from the train station and a 25 minute walk from the beach and a 15 minutes from Deribasivskaya. Western service with local knowledge we are always available to help you plan any excursion or adventure. ... more   less
