Stayed here back in Nov 2013 when I first visited Odessa. It's located on the 3rd floor in this flat. The room that I stayed in was a 12 beded-16 bedded room...I guess it's a lot more comfortable to stay in a single/twin bedded room...I like the designs of the rooms and the hallway, very medieval)) And the kitchen is...

Great hosts/owners - very friendly and sociable. Hostel is inside a very big flat with pretty rooms and we got the double bed room for 2 which is very large (we paid 200 UAH overall for a night stay). Place is just behind the main street of Odessa (Deribassovska) but it is very quite around here. Highly recommended!

We booked this simply to have somewhere to stay after checking out of our previous hotel 12 hours before an overnight train from Odessa to Sevastopol. The double room we booked was really nice and the reception staff very friendly. This place has a great atmosphere and is perfectly located in the very centre of Odessa.

I was welcomed by a Anya who, came all the way downstairs and showed me how to enter the tall builing. I had been lucky earlier because she had arranged a taxi for me, to pick me up from the train station to take me to the hostel. She saved me from being ripped off - I wish more hostels... More

No problems - entered quietly, reception was working, got everything I needed. Beds were ok. Even had the chance to send some e-mails from the kitchen before I went... More

Most of the hostels were closed, or I couldn't contact them. But then I found this hostel named "Lafa" on the Internet, and wrote them a letter, to... More

Nice hostel, directly in the city center - this was good. What was bad: - the very first impression was crushed on the moment of enterance: the director shouted at us ' Why did you ring the door?!

“The hostel is situated in the city centre, and all the attractions are in 10 minutes from there. They also have 2 deaneries near the hostel, which serve cheap Ukrainian food. The rooms are bright and very comfortable. The 16 bed dormitory and 12 bed dormitory have the balcony, where you can leave your bicycle.”
