The Babushka Grand Hostel
Ranked #53 of 278 Specialty Lodging in Odessa
Reviewed December 11, 2011

Nice hostel atmosphere, two dormitories and a "private room". Classically furnished with candelabra under the ceilings.
It is an apartment in a three story house only marked by a door bell on the main entrance. You must find the right apartment by yourself (first floor). Masha seems a little confused, but has everything under control and speaks 3 languages.

Very popular with young americans partying. If you accept that, its actually nice.

Not too clean, not to professional but very homey and laid back.
Its one big apartment, which was classy once, well before it was turned into a hostel!

More than a bit annoying to arrive, despite two phone calls making and then confirming our reservation, only to be told that the double room (or any room) was not available as apparently the staff/owners are not very skilled at managing reservations. And the same was true for another couple who arrived the same day. An apology, a room around the corner in another place helped, but it was more expensive with nothing more than a shrug offered for the mistake. The use of the shower was made available after our check-out the next day in the other place--helpful, I suppose.

Room Tip: Impossible to evaluate as we did not get to stay here!

Babushka is a tastefully decorated, well run apartment-style hostel with relaxed atmosphere. It's quite centrally located, just a 10 mins cheap taxi ride to Arcadia beach (alternatively you can take a direct tram to the beach). There are shops and some good restaurants nearby and the hostel can arrange for various activities and tours to suit most tastes. It's not the cheapest accommodation if that's what you're after however, it's definitely on the classier side.
The double room was spacious, nicely furnished and had a large and comfortable bed. I would have liked it so much more if not that I had booked a twin room instead - not a big deal though, it all was rectified pretty well. I liked the bathrooms and large common area. Whether you want to do sightseeing or clubbing, I think your stay at Babushka will be an enjoyable one.
