This hostel was great, one of the best I've stayed in. It doesn't have too many beds, but makes it feel more of a share house atmosphere. The location was fantastic also!

We spent two nights here in a private room and were very happy with our stay. Olomouc is a gorgeous little town, that can rival Prague for beauty and scenery. The hostel itself is very cosy and comfortable, with all the facilities of a larger hostel without any of the hassles. The room and bathrooms were clean and the facilities, like the kitchen, were extensive. I was particularly impressed with the amount of information that is on offer (about the area and beyond) in the central common room. There is so much detail that you will not be left wondering about how you should spend you time. The owners were lovely, they were happy to help us with information about trains and places to visit, but were not invasive or pushy. The hostel is central and easily accessible to the tram line which takes you to the main train station. The centre of Olomouc is easily reached on foot. A great place!

N.B. The hostel is on the top floor of a building, you have to climb 4 flights of stairs to get there. Might be difficult for people with disabilities or heavy luggage as there is no lift.

Who would have expected that, in Olomouc, you can find such a charming place? Hostel with a great atmosphere and interesting idea for the interior. I felt there, as among friends. The hosts are always ready to help, always nearby, willing to talk about the city and surrounding area. And Francie's delicious cake:)

best hostel i've stayed in throughout my european adventures. Feels like your at a friends home. Staff are fantastic with information and making your stay comfortable. If I pass though the czech republic again I will definately stop in olomouc and poets corner again. Great chili/hot sauce.

My boyfriend and I only left Poets Corner this morning but already we are missing it! We have spent almost 4 months travelling around Europe and our stay in Olomouc has been one of the highlights by far. We have stayed in many hostels, but Poets Corner feels like staying at a friends house with a very cosy lounge area and kitchen and a really warm, social atmosphere.

The staff are amazing and could not be more helpful with tips and ideas to spend your time. We loved our nights out with Chris and Ian - dancing and drinking, a yummy dinner at the lovely micro brewery, kicking back in one of the cosy tea-houses and sipping cheap but delicious Moravian wine poured straight from the barrel. We even got to see the local Ice Hockey team play - the stadium is just around the corner and it was such a highlight. Thanks Greg!

We had originally booked for three nights, but extended our stay after only one night. A lot of people staying there also extended their stay, so it seems to be a common theme. We enjoyed our time in Olomouc far more than our time in Prague, and would recommend anyone in the area to stop and see this beautiful town which is not full of tourists.

Thank you for the great time crew - we would love to come back very soon.

We really enjoyed Greg and Francie's hospitality at Poet's Corner. The wealth of information that has been compiled and made available as well as the information Greg personally advised on checking us in. In the morning, I noticed Greg was very mindful of the people still sleeping and kept closing the bedroom door in order to keep the noise down.
The first night we spent in the shared bedroom of eight and the second night we moved to the private room which had an enormous double/king bed plus two bunks. Perfect.
We would highly recommend this hostel when visiting the amazing Olomouc.
