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.

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.

    Super nice people and a lot of place, it feels like Home. Do not expect a party hostel. They keep it very clean. You got two balconies and a big living room and kitchen. Highly recommended

    Hostel run by a couple of grandparents, very nice and super-helpful, even if they do not speak much English. The hostel is small but well kept and very welcoming. Near the station but a little far from the coast. However very recommended: no security problems and extraordinary price.
