Olomouc is often overlooked but it is a real gem. The Poet's Corner is the perfect place to stay - friendly and so interesting. The atmosphere is great as were the other guests. I would highly recommend visiting Olomouc and staying here!

Olomouc is a great town, and Poets Corner is a great hostel. From the start we were made feel really welcome; Ian sat down and went over a map with us, pointing out places to go, eat and drink. The atmosphere in the hostel is really chilled and friendly, and soon we'd teamed up with other guests. We really recommend...

Stayed here for a night on a recent trip to Czech. The owners were very helpful and friendly and keen to help us see as much of the city as possible in the short time we were there. Olomouc is a pretty small place and the old town is very close to the hostel and when you get a map...

My wife and I stayed here three nights, PC is a short walk to the old center where there are nice places to eat and visit. Comfortable for us.... a hostel so there is a shared bath/shower rooms. It is a quiet place... not a party hostel and the owners are very helpful.

We stayed in the double room in the main hostel for 4 nights whilst we visited friends who live in Olomoucs. We enjoyed our stay- our room was very large and was comfortable. Showers were hot and bathrooms clean and it was rare to have to wait for them to be vacant. Nice kitchen and living room areas for socialising...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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
