Black Sea Backpackers Hostel

After arriving in Odessa at 11:30 in the evening, we needed a place to sleep and the sole hostel listed on the Internet was called the "Black Sea Backpackers Hostel;" sounds like a good fit for the three of us. We took a cab to 12 Deribasovskaya Street after Joe attempted to pronounce it several times and finally the cabbie caught on. It was quite dark out, and through an unmarked door and up three flights of stairs we finally found the place via the name written in chalk on the wall. A note tacked to the door indicated that the staff and owners were across the street at an Irish pub, but we didn't manage to find them. We bit the bullet and stayed at a decent hotel.

The next day we returned and found the Australian owners, managers, and a construction team. Now the lack of signage made sense; it just opened a week ago and is still a work in progress. The place is great, high ceilings, clean surroundings, and a great common room with a plasma tv. The friendly owners informed us that because of the construction we could stay for free, what a deal! There was a Greek couple staying in our room, who somewhat amazingly have done nearly the same trip around the Black Sea.

Last night, the owners and managers took us all out to Arcadia, the hip beach/club spot in Odessa; it was a total blast (see post). If you're ever in Odessa, stay at the Black Sea Backpackers Hostel.
