Poets Corner Hostel Olomouc
Reviewed 6 July 2014

I was really suprised - both the city and the hostel are fantastic! I have spend many nights in many hostels around Europe but this one is definitely TOP3! Good location, price, amazing view from the kitchen :). I am sure this was not my last stay at your hostel, why to pay more for anonymous hotels?

I had the pleasure to spend two nice days at Poet's corner hostel in Olomouc. The city is perfect to understand more about Czech Rep and the hostel is the best place you can stay. The owners are lovely, staff willing to help. The structure is kept as an house, cosy, comfy and clean. Staying at this hostel you know that you will always have a pleasent conversation either with the staff and with guests. For real travellers!

A small hostel in a largish flat that feels like a throw back to the 70's - oops age slipping in.

Olomouc is a place where the grandeur of its religious past is now a neat place to wander around.

This hostel is cosy, proprietors English speaking (Australian does qualify) and could not be more helpful.

The town is not on the tourist trail and is quiet outside the University terms, which singlehandedly is keeping McDonald's afloat (allegedly).

This is an excellent hostel! It is very clean and the staff are very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. It is very homely and comfortable with a nice common area. They have lots of useful guide materials and know city and the region well. There is also a refrigerator and kitchen so you can buy and cook some of your own food. They do laundry at the hostel which is very nice for longer stays. I went to Olomouc for a conference and had initially planned to stay 4 nights but loved it so much I decided to stay two weeks! I loved the hostel and there is really a lot of great stuff to see and do in and around Olomouc. I highly recommend this place and hope to come back again sometime.

I'm not sure if this is just a great Hostel compared to the other in Olomouc, but I was quite disappointed! The place smells of mildew, two toilets to eighteen people, and on the fourth floor with no elevator. The staff are very friendly and helpful, but that didn't make up for the rest.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in a double room, shared bathroom. Ian was a great host, providing us with good information about the city, including one of the best map/info sheets I've seen, and making us feel at home. The room and common areas were very clean and comfortable and the quiet location made for a great sleep. The toilet and the shower on our floor were in separate rooms which meant we never had to wait for either. The location is convenient, being very close to the old town and about a 30 minute walk to the train station, or a short tram ride. Olomouc's itself is a nice town and well worth a stop for a night or two

Poets' Corner scores on all points: ideal location in the city center (there's no need really to use public transport), informative, welcoming and ready-to help staff (great recommendations and such a well-put together map!), design (hip retro feel), cleanliness, amazing value (most likely the only budget accommodation option in Olomouc) and so much more. Having explored the city's museums and mingled with the locals in student cafes, restaurants and pubs, we were happy to return to a spotless and cozy room. Staying here definitely made our trip! Totally recommended, not just if you're in for getting the ultimate Olomouc experience, but even more so for experiencing the feel of a genuine hostel. Many thanks to the people behind it!

Room Tip: Do follow the map the hostel provides, it is full of valuable tips :)
