Do NOT stay at the Black Sea Backpackers!!!! Oct 22, 2008
Most guide books state only one hostel that is available in Odessa. This is the Black Sea Backpackers but it would be wise not to stay there. I myself was about to book accommodations there until I was warned by a lot of people not to. It used to be a good hostel until it changed ownership. It is even listed in www.hostelworld.com but the information is outdated. Nightmare stories range from cockroaches running in abundance to discovering used condoms to it doubling up as a brothel. I had the pleasure of staying at this one "hostel" right near the main station. I put quotation marks because it is in it's beginning stages. It is not even on hostelworld yet and it still needs to be registered as an official hostel but once it gets up and running this is probably the ideal place to stay. It is run by a young Polish couple with a cute baby. If you love kids (who doesn't) and don't mind periodical crying from him (c'mon now when you were a baby you cried too) this is the place. Oh, yeah this young couple actually study in England, the guy is fluent in English and Russian, he's been studying Russian for years and as far as his English, it's better than mine, and I'm from California. If you really need a place to stay immediately and you aren't crazy you can send me a private message and maybe I can give you more information on this place. Right now, it's not an official hostel yet, only because he just acquired this place and it's still in it's starting phases. Good luck on your travels
