Cute little city, and the hostel to match it. It was quite quiet when I was there, but Ian the owner was good company. The hostel itself was like a well-kept apartment, and felt like a home.
An hostel like no other. Amazing atmosphere, you feel at home the moment you come in. The owner, Ian, is one of the chilliest hostel owners you'll ever met. The living room is just awesome, a great place to meet fellow travellers. Olomouc is an amazing city, with a vibrant student night life, where being a tourist is still something that locals respect (looking at you, Prague).
I had a great night here as a solo female traveller, and met a lovely array of people who were also staying at the hostel. Ian is super helpful about where to eat, where to go, etc. And his little munchkins are adorable.
Poet's Corner Hostel is the only Hostel in Olomouc. You would think for this reason it would be sub-par, but to the contrary, the owners put a ton of effort into ensuring your stay is pleasant and fun. They sit down with you and know everything that's going on in the city, so are able to give great advice. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Poets corner is a great little hostel. Great atmosphere and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We had a great time in Olomouc, one of the most under rated places in the Czech r. Definitely would recommend! If you're there be sure to check out all the microbreweries, you must go to Moritz and get the smoked roasted pork ribs, probably the tastiest thing I have ever eaten.
We were only here for night, But Lucka made our stay the best possible one. Such a friendly, friendly woman and the hostel isnt far from the centre so its an easy walk. Has everything you need too,
Nice easy location in great town, things to see but not a tourist town great local feel. Hostel friendly helpful with area trips and onwards travels info.! Great bike trips to local areas, they rent bikes there.. Would stay again..!

A place with a lot of soul, welcoming and knowledgable staff and lovely little city.
Relaxed apartment home-from-home style hostel. Lovely living room to hang out in and excitement advice and local city knowledge.
Very friendly staff, lovely atmosphere. They recommended good places to go and were very knowledgeable about the area
Olomouc is a quiet town, but the owner will show you what there is to see. Hostel is small and that is a great thing as the owner has lots of events you can tag along for, sometimes taking everyone out to dinner or drinks. No complaints here.
The owner welcomed me with a tour of the hostel and he took time pto show me a map of the city, giving me tips on the must see. The hostel is not easy too find, it's on the fourth floor of a building, and there is no obvious sign of his presence there from the street.
I haven't taken the time to review may hostels on my trip but this one is a real gem worthy of a review, but more importantly, a visit! The kind couple who run the hostel went out of their way to create a real sense of community among the travelers. For example, they took us out one night to a favorite nearby tea house. They also provided high quality recommendations for what to do and see in Olomouc.
This is a fantastic hostel, one of the best. You'll love it. Poet's is reason enough to visit the authenticly Czech city, Olomouc. Amazing staff with a wealth of local knowledge. The sitting room has chairs in a circle which encourages conversation with fellow human beings! After falling in love with the hostel and the city I booked 2 more nights. I highly recommend the cycle to the lake and on through the forest. Ian has all the equipment you need, just ask. Great hospitality. :-)
A great hostel with a very good atmosphere thanks to the owner of the place. Very helpfull staff and a lot of information to visit some surrounding cities. If you will stay here you will have a great hostel experience.
Very good hostel in the very center of the city, close to any sightseeing or party places. More looks like a hotel with decency and cleanness.
Many hostels abusively claim to be "your home away from home". This hostel diserves the title. Ian and Lucka have arranged a nice and welcoming cocoon and leaving the place will be the hardest you'll have to do during your stay. Olomouc is worth a visit and this hostel is an additional asset for the town.
really quite hostel, but the guy who runs it is very chilled and is really nice, not a party place but is like staying at home, in a nice apartment which doesnt feel like a hostel. again the guy who runs it is really nice and will help you out, we even chilled out on the balcony and had a smoke together.
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.
