Staying at this hostel, run by a husband and wife, felt very homey and comfy like staying at someone's home. The dorm room, bathrooms (1 bathroom with toilet, one without and a separate toilet) common room and kitchen were clean and cosy. On the window sill in the kitchen there were even small pots with different cooking herbs as well... More

After three nights, I have only good things to say about this place. Rarely have I been made to feel more at home by the staff who did everything from help me with laundry to recommend restaurants and off-the-beaten path attractions. Conveniently located a block from all the major tram stops (except #1) and the supermarket, Poets [formerly Cosy] Corner... More

I had a really nice time there but the most value is his owner, Ian, who helped me so much while I was there. The hostel really looks like a former poet house and all the rooms have an amazing view :) I definitely would suggest this hostel!

Hi and thanks for your review and compliments. It was a former poets house! The apartment was known as a meeting place for writers and readers where banned works were orated and discussed during communism! Fascinating stuff. Glad you enjoyed your stay! Best wishes from Ian. More

As soon as you walk into poets corner you feel like you're at home. It is a nice old and Ian the owner was so much help. He gives you a hand designed map and tells you everything you need to know. It was fantastic. There is a kitchen and washing service too but this town is much more beautiful... More

This is a small, colorfully decorated hostel on the 3rd and 4th floors (walk-up) of a well-located building in the old town center of Olomouc. Our Australian host Ian was very helpful with local information. Our private room on the 3rd floor was spacious and airy, with large windows. We shared a shower room, separate toilet, and kitchen with just... More

Poet's Corner was a great choice for budget accommodation in Olomouc. €12 for the night, the beds were comfortable, the hostel offers good facilities and the owner Ian was very friendly and welcoming. He was also very informative about the city and took the time to show us on a map the main sites and good places for food, drink... More

Loved the hostel, loved the town. The hostel is like a surreal 1970s apartment, the chairs in the sitting room are the epitomy of kitsch. The owner is a total sweetheart, greeted me with a cup of tea and a chinwag about her children. there is free tea and coffee (fruit tea and real coffee as well!) and the kitchen... More

The Poets Corner hostel is definitely the place to stay if you are seeking peace and relaxation. The intimate atmosphere of the hostel was comforting and "home-like" with great wifi, a reading library, hot showers, clean sheets/towels, and a kitchen to use. Additionally, the staff provided a fantastic map of Olomouc and information on touristic sites, restaurants, and pubs. I... More

You are given your own key so you can come and go as you please, no curfew. Staff willing to help in any way they can. Clean, comfortable, hot shower, kitchen with free tea and coffee. Would stay here again and again, have recommended to friends and family.

A very intimately friendly hostel which I felt at home in right away. I stayed here in the depths of winter when it was about minus 10 outside. The lounge area was just what was needed at this time, a very cosy, homely feel to the place. Ian the owner greets every new guest personally, and can offer lots of... More
