The Hostelz.com Review

Hipstel is fully decked out with everything you could want -- really clean, spacious rooms; a nice chill-out area; decent kitchen; and the friendliest staff.

The Location

The hostel is located on a nice, quiet street within walking distance to everything you could want in Odessa, with a huge supermarket nearby. You have the option of many restaurants and the bar street is just a short stroll away as well. The hostel can be hard to locate; as it is a building from the nineteenth century, the façade has to be kept untouched so you will have to keep your eyes peeled for the entrance and sign. From where the buses will drop you off it is an easy, flat, ten-minute walk. When returning at night, though, do be warned the pothole-riddled street can be very dark.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms here are awesome. The beds are fully covered by curtains with comfortable mattresses and all rooms have air conditioning, as well as a locker big enough to keep most bags. One of the mixed dorms does have a situation where two beds are backing onto each other, which could make for some awkward scenes if you end up next to a random. The bathrooms are great as well, with three showers and a separate three toilets. The showers have enough space to keep your stuff and get changed without a problem.

Common Spaces

This hostel gives some very chilled vibes -- there is a nice lounge room area where you can hang with a TV and a drinks fridge for you to purchase some things. There is a very well stocked and spacious kitchen. The only slight problem experienced here is that, as the hostel has wooden floors throughout and the dorm rooms all sit off the main hallway, the noise of people walking up and down could get quite loud.

Summary

This is a really lovely hostel that's very well thought out and curated. The staff are super friendly and would go out of their way to help; note that some of the staff don't speak English but the manager is always on call to help. The rooms and bathrooms are super comfy and clean, and this place is in an ideal location to experience everything Odessa has to offer.
