My favorite hostel in whole Olomouc I have ever been. Nice interier and excelent staff. It is located in the center near all shops, restaurants and public transport. I always meet cool and interesting people there. Ideal for students outside of Olomouc.

I expected a lot more judged on ratings. Probably ok for back packers but a private room was poor value. I had one of 3 rooms on the 3rd floor, 67steps up from street. The room was very basic, no TV, bedside light or hanging space. A small table light and even a hanging post would have helped. One W.C.... More

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cosy Corner Hostel (formerly known as Poets Corner Hostel) is a traditional backpackers hostel located in the wonderful, historic city of Olomouc which is recognized as one of Europe's true hidden gems. The hostel features mixed dorm rooms for the budget minded traveller as well as spacious and stylish private rooms with some antique furniture. Some of our rooms have a nice view too. The 'heart' of the hostel is the cosy common room complete with armchairs you can sink into, perfect for our guests to gather, make new friends and share travel stories, or just curl up to some good music or a book. We have a book exchange and some boardgames too. Cosy Corner Hostel also has a fully equipped guest kitchen which is a great place to prepare your own meals or enjoy a bit of 'potluck' with your fellow guests. Good teas and coffee are always available. Bathrooms are shared but only a few steps away from any room. There is also a cute little balcony with a gorgeous view of St Wenceslas Cathederal and the hills beyond. Free WI-FI is available throughout the entire hostel. Towels are provided for all private rooms and are free on request for dorm room guests. Smoking is NOT permitted inside the hostel. We allow pets but only for guests staying in private rooms. Please inform us at the time of booking if you have a pet. The hostel also provides LOTS of information about Olomouc and surrounds and all guests are given our customized map of the town to help them get the most out of their stay. We also have a laundry service for guests which is 100 CZK per load but FREE if you stay 3+ nights. We enjoy hosting travellers from all over the world and often socialize with our guests, be that for a meal, coffee, drinks, an ice hockey game in the winter and occasionally on daytrips out of town. We look forward to meeting you and helping you get the most out of one of Europe's hidden gems - OLOMOUC. ... more   less
