A really nice hostel right in the centre of town. Staff were very friendly and the place had a great social atmosphere without being a party hostel. Staff also had lots of recommendations for what to do around town.

Hi and thanks for your glowing review! Its our aim to provide the atmosphere for guests to get together and go out but to respect those that want to do their own thing or hang out in the cosy confines of the hostel. Heaps to do in Olomouc and lots of good restaurants, bars, cafes and the very unique teahouses too..

This was a wonderful hostel. We met some great people here and the owners and staff were so nice and very helpful. They have a home made map with a bunch of tips on the back and they were very willing to help. Wonderful hostel

I stayed here once before under the previous owners.New owners are an Australian/Czech couple who have maintained their predecessors high standards.It is good to see the owners living and working on the premises- an unusual sight, I've found.Recommended.

Hi Peter. That's a great compliment to us ! We sure had mighty big boots to fill taking over operating the hostel a few years ago so its most gratifying to read you compare us so favourably. Take care and hope to see you again, Ian and Lucka, Poets Corner.

Very relaxed hostel, great location. Staff were great, gave us a map with all their favourite spots marked out, and invited us out to a wine bar one night. We met ian one of the owners a number of times, who was lovely. Two toilets and only one shower, but we never had any trouble, all in seperate private rooms. The common area was lovely.

This was a comfortable and welcoming hostel very close to the main action in Olomouc. The common room was the most cosiest ever, with an old world feel and good for social interaction. The people working there were very knowledgeable about Olomouc and what to do. No complaints was a good hostel and will definitely stay here again when in Olomouc.

Thanks David for your review. It was my pleasure to help you out of the jam you were in - I've faced a similar challenge and once relied upon the help and trust of a hostel so it was great to return that karma to someone else finally. Happy travels and take care, Ian.

Location: Excellent; right next to the city center, near food and shopping! Service: Excellent; very informative and helpful owners with great personality. Flexible and no unreasonable red tape. Amenities: Average; the bathrooms situation was tricky but the internet was beyond fast and reliable. The beds could use some updating as the springs were a bit poky at sections, and towels were rough likely from overuse and washes. In-room heater was wonky too but we were provided ample blankets.

Hi and thanks for taking the time to post a review with detailed comments. Our bathroom arrangement is pretty adequate mostly and cannot be altered to a great degree due to plumbing limitations but it and the rest of the place is kept clean. The heating is controlled by a central thermostat to a level comfortable for most so we need to hear if it is too cold during your stay, so we can crank it up for you. Its too late now! Anyway, happy trails and thanks for being our guests.
