Property Information:

!!!Very Important!!! : The entrance to our hostel is on #60 Malaya Arnautskaya. There is no entrance on #85 Ekaterininskaya

!!!For the month of November the city is doing construction on the facade of our building. So please be aware that there will a metal fence infront of the building and some construction during the day, and our air-conditioning won't be working!!!

The Babushka Grand hostel is in the city center, 3 blocks from the train station, 1 block from the #5 tram, which ends in Arcadia on one side and the other at the central bus station. We are one block from the best Restaurant/bar/club venue in the city and are surrounded by many others. We are also 2 blocks from the Privoz market where you can get fresh cheap food directly from the local villages.

For your security we have a CCTV camera on the street to buzz in our guests and free lockers to store your valuables so you can rest comfortably. All our mattresses are comfortable box spring mattresses; our sheets are quality cotton and ironed for your sleeping enjoyment. We are experts at finding a reason to party, there is always someone going to a bar, concert or club and during the day we offer unique and interesting tours (see below).

Our hostel is a large spacious apartment with chandeliers and gold gilded ceilings, styled after the palace of an 18th century Odessa aristocrat. We have two restrooms and a large comfy communal area with couches and a TV. The dorm rooms are beautiful and spacious. Our private rooms are luxurious and decorated with classic furniture.

We opened, live and work in this hostel because we love Odessa and meeting new people. We enjoy the city, know the city and aren't here just to make a buck. If you want to stay in a place that feels like a home, is connected to the culture of Odessa and isn't just another generic hostel or apartment that treats you as a commodity, come stay with us.

And because we want to have time to get to know you, we offer discounts for our long term guests. But, If you are in Ukraine looking for a wife through an agency please find other accommodations.
