Just like the backpacker's hostels of my youth. Cheap, cheerful, cosy accommodation. Aptly named. Adequate kitchen and suitable ablutions. Kept clean n tidy by a friendly humorous proprietor Lucie. Was an enjoyable base to explore a vibrant Olomouc. The map they provided is very helpful. A good folder of local sights is available in the lounge.

Stayed at this hostel last year while interrailing around Europe with a friend, loved it so much that we worked our way back there to stay for a few days once our train passes had expired. When I stayed at this place last year it was called Poet's Corner and located on the 3/4th floor of an apartment block, in... More

Stayed here while it was called the Poet's Corner. It was a lovely little place split over two floors of an apartment building. It's a bit far from the train station, but their instructions to get there via public transport are good, and it's very close to the transit stop. It's close to the sites, a grocery store, and a...

Stayed there for two nights in September and had a great time. The place is located in a sort of apartment and really feels like staying in somebody's home. The staff is really helpful, thought they are not present in the hostel all the time, but that is comprehensive since it's a pretty small place. Olomouc is a nice place... More

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
