One of my best experience in a hostel ! The woman who owns the hostel is so adorable, helpful and everything. I felt like home when I came here. The decoration of the apartment is incredible. I stayed in the private room which is absolutely amazing ! I'll come back Babushka :)
The Babushka Grand Hostel was by far the best hostel stay I have experienced so far. The condition of the apartment, atmosphere in the house made this place really special. I will definitely come back to visit again!!
The perfect hostel for Odessa. The location was very convenient, the staff was excellent, it was safe and comfortable. Good wifi and good lockers. When I come back to Odessa, I will surely stay here again.
Hostel occupies a spacious apartment with high ceilings. Building looks rough on the outside but very nice on the inside. Run by an older couple who speak limited English but who try hard to please their guests. Easy walk to train station. Good wifi. Full kitchen.
Like coming to visit grandma and grandpa. Not so much English being spoken but you can practice your Russian. Very welcoming. And cats. Hooray for kitties. I felt bad coming in late though because babushka has to wake up and let you in.
One you found the tiny sign at the door, you were ushered into an ornate 19th century flat with a terrific welcome despite poor English. A real home from home
I stayed one night with 2 of my friends, it was good, the staff are really welcoming and the atmosphere really cosy ! It's like if you arrive in a babuska's house, and she take care of you, she is still here for you and your questions !!!

I had a very good stay here. The hosting lady was very nice and welcoming. She and her husband made me feel home from the first minute I arrived. The hostel is in the centre of the city very close to the Odessa main train station and buses. So you can simple take a quick walk to the hostel. It is very close to a lot of interesting places, bars and restaurants that are in walking distance. The common room and the kitchen are very cleanly kept .I will come back for sure.

Luba and Viktor are the most wonderful hosts. Welcoming, helpful, and always at hand with local advice. The room was wonderful, in the heart of the city, close to the station, market, supermarket, and main city center. I cannot reccommned the Grand Babushka more highly. A real pleasure and we will certainly be retruning there.
I want to thank Luba abd Viktor for a wonderful stay in a superb room, and for the help and kindness. I would highly recommed The Babushka Grand Hostel to anyone. Located in the city center close to the train station, and only minutes from the shops and restaurants. More importantly the management are welcoming, helpful, and a pleasure to deal wtih. We had a superb stay!
