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

Olomouc is a nice unknown city, full of history and life. If you're traveling around Prague and Bratislava, you should have a short stay there for sure. If so, don't miss The Poet's Corner Hostel, a familial and cosy place, where it feels just like home. A nice discovery during my trip, a little treasure of humor and welcoming.

Recently stayed here for two nights while visiting Olomouc. As mentioned in many of the previous reviews, the hostel manager Ian was really helpful. When we checked in, he ran through all the local sights and gave his tips on good places to go for food or drinks. We shared a large twin room. Comfortable with a lot more extra... More

Everything is old and well used with character. Nice view of the cathedral. Easy to get stuck here (in a good way). The owners were pleasant hosts. Nice kitchen if you cook. Of the 2 staff, one actually tried to be pleasant, the other seemed to be stuck in teenage angst. One of those "everyone is sooo stupid" stage. Created... More

Ian M, Owner at Poets Corner Hostel Olomouc, responded to this review

Its disappointing for us to read your unfortunate description of staff, especially seeing as how you are actually referring to a former staff member who was our guest at the time. Its also disappointing as you mentioned on several occasions how much you liked the hostel, even describing it as 'how a hostel should be!'. You extended your stay a... More

Ian was the epitome of the perfect host. Prior to our arrival, I inadvertently booked a 3 night stay and asked if the reservation could be changed to one night. Ian gladly agreed to change my request. When we arrived in Olomouc, we were greeted by a homey hostel and a great view of the city. After traipsing about cobbled... More

Really the only hostel in town. Stayed in a private room and it was comfortable enough (you really can't get a private room for cheaper in Olomouc as prices are weirdly kind of high). Felt the springs in my bed a bit but it was clean. Bit of a weird smell in the hostel as well. Manager is a nice... More

We were at the hostel for two nights, with a day (and an evening) to see the whole of Olomouc. After we'd made acquaintances with the hostel owner we were invited to drink a cup of tea while checking in. It's a cosy place and the owners (staff) were very helpful. We got good recommendations for breakfast (as it is... More

I've been to this hostel with my wife and children (age of 14 and 10) on the way to Poland, so we had only a limited amount of time in Olomouc and we liked to use it to visit the Olomouc's old town. This hostel is an excellent place to do this - very conveniently located, near the old town,... More

I regret having only had one night in Olomouc, as it is a charming town with a lot of interesting history. Poet's corner was the perfect place to stay - quiet, homey, and comfortable. The maps provided by the hostel were extremely helpful, as was Ian who answered all my questions and gave me some helpful pointers.
