“Simple room on good spit with helpfull staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013 via mobile

The rooms are very simple. Fi not equiped with bedlamps. One armchair in a corner with a very dark dampshade. But every three bedrooms in an apaťrtment share a kitchen, living corner and a bathroom. Old fashioned decoration gives it a homy feel.
I paid 30 euro for a single.
Nice in the center. Sure i am content with my stay there.

If you'd have enough of the crowds of Prague, Olomouc is the place to head to and Poet's Corner is the hostel in which to stay.

Great staff, who take the time to sit with you and chat about what there is to see and do, as well as lovely fellow travellers who are eager to go out and explore this charming little city. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: 8 bed dorms are basic, but are centrally located around the heart of the hostel, so good to meet peo...

Rather informal and easygoing place located really close to most of the town's attractions. Staff was really great and welcoming, and all of the necesary information was really easy accesable from the hostel's booklets. Beds were comfy, aswell as common areas, but my favourite was the balcony with quite a view. Thank again for Ian and the rest of the crew!

A really cozy hostel with good sized rooms, friendly English-speaking staff, nice kitchen areas and very comfortable communal sitting areas. They also provide quite some information about day trips in and around Olomouc.

This was a really great hostel with really friendly and helpful staff. I really liked the character of the place and it was a very welcome break, having a more relaxed atmosphere than some hostels.

It had some nice communal areas, a good sized kitchen and the shared bathroom was cleaned daily. There was a book exchange and lots of information about things to do in Olomouc and further afield.

I would definitely recommend anyone to go to Olomouc, and to stay here.

I'm back at Poets Corner for my third visit. The staff, despite some changes in personnel since last year, remain as friendly and welcoming as any I have encountered in more than a dozen years of backpacking.

The Hostel is kept to a high standard of cleanliness and for those who don't want to share in the dorm rooms, private rooms are available.
