It's really a wonderful place! I like it very much !


A very good place to stay in Olomouc. The staff is very friendly.


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.


The location cannot be better, staff is very nice, polite and friendly; really good place to stay for money.

Hi and thank you for the compliments. Glad to see you made the most of your stay here and enjoyed having you as our guest. All the best from Ian and Lucka.


This is a really cosy and lovely hostel. It's small, so you get to know pretty much everyone who is staying there. It's run by a lovely Australian/Czech couple with two cool kids. And one day I was there Ian made a cake to share with the guests! It's super close to a couple of great microbreweries and well worth the visit.

Hi and thank you for your great compliment. It is excellent having you as a returning guest and look forward to your next visit. Until then, wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Okay, see you soon, Ian and all at Poets Corner.


This is one of the few Hostels in Olomouc. It is a strange place, there are people there who seem to be living there for quite a while. The place is very quiet at times which is uncomfortable - some background music would be better. The long term tennants seem to leave mess in the kitchen which is not great. Note, there are 4 flights of stairs and no lift, so luggage can be a pain.

Thanks for your comments but allow me to clarify: We do NOT have long term tenants and the mess you refer to was made by another guest. Things like that are beyond our immediate control and she was told about it. Reading your other reviews, I think is strange how you manage to find fault in almost every place you have stayed. Communicate concerns during your stay. We don't bite! And we are not strange. Most people like us.


really lovely place. there is a great atmosphere and the staff are really helpful and friendly.
