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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

I always consider the comment 'overrated' to be quite a selfish one. Over rated to your, perhaps unrealistic expectations, should not be a reason to question or critique the opinions of others who have genuinely enjoyed our place. Why attempt to undermine our history of positive reviews? Of course I welcome constructive criticism but not your choice of labeling us... More

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... More

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... More

Poets Corner is located in the fourth and fifth floor in one of the Olomouc apartment houses in the city centre. It's close to the tram station so easy accessible by tram from the main train station. Staff is very friendly and they spent a couple of minutes with us providing us basic information about the city, good restaurant and... More
