A spacious hostel on a quiet street right next to Sobornaya Square. It is a huge apartment on top floor with a small balcony overlooking Preobrazhensky Cathedral. The walls are covered with newspapers and 70ties vynil covers painted over with beige see-through paint. The sculptural work on the ceiling, the chandeliers, old double doors and tiles are amazing. The staff is very friendly and keep the place very clean. It is also quiet at night - basically no outside noise except for the bells of the cathedral. It is right in the center, 3 min walk to Deribasovskaya and the city garden. So If you want to explore the beaches, rent a bike!

The hostel and staff were very good but it was a bit far from the beach and club area of Arcadia. Would stay there again though, Odessa is great !

overall we really enjoyed our time in odessa, the beach, bars and restaurants are just a 5 minute walk from the hostel and the hostel staff helped us out in how to get to places which was great, the facilities in the hostel {showers, bathrooms, kitchen} where all very good and clean.

Room Tip: we stopped in the 12 bed dorm with the balcony overlooking the street. the view from the balcony was...
