The Babushka Grand hostel is a large spacious apartment with chandeliers and gold gilded ceilings. It has two balconies for lounging or smoking, two bathrooms and a large communal area with a book exchange, sofas, a large Persian rug and a TV. The kitchen is fully functional with a blender, microwave, stove, oven and free spices. 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.
STORY OF THIS HOSTEL:
We opened this hostel because we love meeting new people and love Odessa. Let us introduce ourselves; Masha, the owner, is a working jazz singer born and raised in Odessa, John has been living in Odessa working as a bartender, translator and editor and Neil has been working in hostels in Ukraine since he came through for a week and never left. He has taken the best from what he has learned from other hostels (and left out the worst) to help make The Babushka Grand a special place. We love going to the beach, listening to live music (or making it), walking around the city, cooking (especially Mexican food), playing poker, smoking hookah and just sitting around talking. We’ve got a great group of friends, locals and expats, who we would love to introduce you to, because we know that it is people, more than anything else, that makes the experience. Odessa is our home and so we are less in the hostel business than making and keeping Odessa a great place to enjoy life.
