Nice and clean place, friendly, helpful and flexible staff and clean sheets/towels provided. Slept real well here due to ac in the dorm room and I met lots of good people here. Next time I'll come back for sure!

Although the staff were lovely, they were clueless. They did not understand the term 'twin room'. The twin rooms all have one Queen size bed (smaller than double, bigger than single) but they still expect customers to use single size sheets that don't cover the mattress. All customers are expected to go barefoot, even in toilet. I assume this is...

Not what it advertised, no twin rooms available, no air conditioning. Practically no hot water. Shower facilities are terrible with gas boiler pretty much in the shower. I think there is a creche downstairs so quite noisy. Staff tried to make amends but I doubt much will change. Location is good for Odessa.

Very nice hostel, 5 minutes from the main street Deribasovska, the staff was helpful, and I met interesting travelers too. Internet is really fast, and there are plenty of electrical sockets to connect computers, phones ... useful!

The fat swan is incredibly clean, comfortable, and in a great location. The vibe is chill and the other travelers were nice to be around. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. My only complaint is that I had to smoke outside.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our lovely Fat Swan is in the heart of Odessa and we welcome you to all the fun and excitement the city has to offer. Last year we were the Communist Party Hostel, but due to our own Perestroika and Glasnost we have returned to the petite bourgeois and all the luxury that accompanies it.The Fat Swan is has parquet wood floors and exquisite furniture. We have a lovely park behind the building for all of your outdoor lounging and smoking needs. We have a gang of aspiring to be Komsomol youth training in the mornings to keep out the infiltrators (as well a safe) to protect your incriminating documents. The hostel is run by Kent the super awesome reactionary partier, who will show you around the city as well as a damn good time. We offer a full kitchen for all of your borscht needs, hot showers, and we provide sheets and towels. Our Hostel consists of a 6 bunk bed style dorm and 3 comfortable private rooms. With so many luxuries you’d swear you were staying in a post 1991 soviet sanatorium. Come stay at the Fat Swan! ... more   less
