Liked: It is located in an optimal location as it takes 30 min. by foot to the beach and 30 min. to the city center. The hostel is very clean and staff is very helpful.

Liked: Just like being in grandma's apartment. Staff was very friendly-and hostel is very clean and very comfortable. Plenty of room to move about. A wonderful common area {with actual sofas and chairs-not the "chillax" pillows on the floor), that is conducive to meeting other guests. Bubushka doesn't speak much English, but her sweetness more then makes up for it.

Disliked: Not much-hot water was sometimes iffy-

Liked: Really lovely family run hostel. The hostel is very cosy and the staff are friendly and helpful. The location is a little bit out of the city centre but only a 15 minute walk, and a bit longer to get to the beach but very close to the main train station and a lot of public transport so it is easy to get around if you don't want to walk. There is a well equipped kitchen and a nice living room where all the guests can relax, as it is a small hostel you get to know the other guests well which is great.

Liked: Great value for money and the staff were very friendly and helpful (I arrived in Odessa at about 8am completely exhausted from lack of sleep on a sleeper train from Kiev and one of the staff let me check in early and sleep on a bed for no extra cost). The hostel is located near the train station which was helpful, though it is a fair walk to the centre of town (only 20mins or so though). The hostel feels more like someone's apartment rather than a hostel but it still felt like a comfortable place to crash for a few days.

Disliked: It wasn't a traditional hostel (which I actually liked about it) but had more of a home feel to it. I liked that but I imagine some others might not. I was travelling with a few mates, but it might be a hard hostel to make friends in if you were travelling solo.
