Don't lose your valuables because there are no lockers.

Don't pay extra for weekends or holidays...

This is the real hostel experience.

A real hostel run by real travellers.

Not just another Ukrainian apartment stacked with beds and calling itself a hostel.

Odessa is the Pearl of the Black Sea, a fantastic port city of holiday, history, and cosmopolitan culture.

....and we are easy to find located just opposite the main shopping boulevard of the city and next to one of the largest landmarks in the city, the Spaso-Preobrazhenskij cathedral on Sobornaya Square.

Many buses stop directly on the Square.

Opposite the Square is Deribasovskaya Street with its beautiful city gardens, restaurants, bars, the Europa shopping mall, (& the ubiquitous McDonalds), which in turn leads to the port, the funicular railway, the Opera House, and the famous Potemkin Stairs.

We have a bakery across the street, two 24 hour supermarkets on our block currency exchanges, banks, ATM's, cafes, bars, and restaurants all in our street...and the best sharma in Odessa just around the corner open 24 hours!

Our hostel consists of a large and airy 12 bed Dorm with a small private balcony overlooking the cobbled street; and another large 10 bed Dorm; and 2 Private Double Rooms.

There are Free Security Lockers for every guest....

A Common Room with sofas, TV, and a Book-Swap Library.

3 shower stalls, and 3 toilets.

A large dining or entertaining area and a fully equipped kitchen where guests can prepare their own food.

We have no Curfew or Lockout.

Security coded entry means our guests can come and go as they please

Your hosts live on site to deal immediately with your questions and needs.

There are hostel computers available with Skype, headphones, and a webcam for you to use and a free, fast WiFi internet connection if you have your own laptop/PDA.

And of course:

- We supply free linens and towels as standard

- We supply free City Guides and Maps

- We offer free tea & coffee

- There is a daily laundry service available

- In the interests of Health and Safety we maintain Fire and First Aid equipment on the premises.

In an effort to be clear, please understand that this is a traditional Backpacker and Traveler hostel.

We cater predominantly to independent travelers and our operation is geared towards creating an experience the dedicated traveler appreciates.

We provide lots of facilities such as showers and toilets, and a large fully equipped cooking kitchen with 2 fridges, gas cooktop, stove, & microwave.

There is no curfew however there is a mandated Quiet Time after midnight when the kitchen area is closed.

This is to encourage those who want to party to go out and enjoy everything which Odessa has to offer while allowing those who wish to sleep the opportunity to do so.

These simple rules ensure that every guest is respected,

If respecting others isn't on your agenda then this probably isn't the right hostel for you.

We offer a huge amount of first hand travel knowledge about Ukraine and the Crimea, Turkey, Georgia, Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central Asia.

We can help you with Black Sea ferry bookings.

All Bus & Train timetables

A dedicated Taxi Service for the Airport or Ferry Port

We can help direct you to:

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Odesa has a lot of stray cats on its streets and dogs in wilder areas. The cats make green areas or courtyards, etc, smell of cat-pee. It pervades the city and the locals must see it as normal. The main door onto the street serving the block that this hostel is in is always open and cats use the dark, dank stairs for shelter at night. This means that the stair area stinks and can have puddles. There was no lighting when I went and seeing dark shapes moving around at your feet as you climb to the top floor is pretty off-putting.
The hostel itself is generally fine, and feels nicer the longer you stay, though they have a pet cat which wanders the dorm and living spaces at will, making a mockery of the 'shoes off at the door' policy. There is a good kitchen and plenty of common areas and they supplied computers for free visitor use of the internet. The staff are very friendly and very helpful.
A shower cubicle was perched upon pieces of wood which I didn't notice before I got in. The cubicle swayed and could have toppled over. Not impressed with that!
Washing machines, conveniently, are supplied for use at a nominal rate.
There is absolutely beautiful plaster-work on the ceilings of a number of rooms (though no-one seemed to notice!). A nearby park has a regular craft market (useful, as souvenir-hunting can otherwise be quite disappointing in Odesa) and there are lots and lots of eating and drinking options very near by, though the street itself is never boysterous. A decent seat at the opera, 10 minutes walk away, costs a rediculous £4 or so, so treat yourself and take your camera - the building is amazing!
