Terrific staff. Convenient location within walking distance from the train station so no need to take a bus or taxi when arriving in Odessa. The hostess, Lena, was really helpful, friendly, and great with suggestions about which beaches in Odessa to go to. She has a fun attitude and enjoyed practicing her newly learned card tricks on me and other guests. She made the place feel comfortable like visiting a friend's home than a hostel or hotel. I liked that each person gets a private locker with key. The communal room is large and a good place to socialize with the other guests. Great place. I'd go back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
