Our hostel is a large spacious apartment with chandeliers and gold gilded ceilings. We have two balconies for lounging or smoking, two bathrooms and a large comfy communal area with carpets and a TV. Our kitchen is fully functional with a blender, microwave, stove, oven, meat grinder, spices, hot sauce (siracha). The dorm room is large, carpeted and spacious. Our private rooms are luxurious and decorated with classic furniture. The apartment's 18th century aristocratic style makes the Babushka Grand a truly gorgeous hostel which helps add to the home-like relaxed atmosphere that we try to provide for travelers rushing around Eastern Europe and exploring the former Soviet Union.

We offer a free welcome beer, free breakfast and free towel and linens. We can provide tours of the city's beautiful facades or its dark underbelly. Masha's mother comes a couple times a week and cooks a traditional Ukranian banquet with salad, soup, two main courses, desert, wine and vodka. We know and love Odessa and are happy to show you whatever it is about the city that you're interested in.
Prices are per person per night.
