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

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
