Property Description

Long Story Short. It's simple, affordable, well-designed yet still more than just a hostel. When it comes to our staff, it's very relaxed, laid back and have very high standards. Our old fortress is culturally and historically rich, meaning great photos and stories are made here and you can take a seat in our magical garden or gradient terraces overlooking the petanque pit. Parking available as well.

Located in the historical centre of Olomouc, Long Story Short is for anyone who is looking for a break from the ordinary. We are in a unique building in a perfect location near the heart of the city. The Gothic Cathedral is one of the oldest and most striking monuments here in Olomouc. You'd probably never expect the second tallest church tower in the country by walking up a small street. The scale of this cathedral might surprise you, but it's been around for over 1000 years. It is the most important cathedral in Moravia and its appearance is perfectly in line with its significance. It has a richly decorated interior and its crypt is the final resting place for the bishops and archbishops of Olomouc. Not only there is the Gothic Cathedral, but many more sights worth seeing, as for example The Holy Trinity Column, which is listed as a Unesco sight. Only by walking through our city centre, you can stumble upon an astronomical clock, several churches along with towers offering beautiful view of Olomouc.

Here you will find a unique mix of dorms and private rooms for up to 56 people. We have an in-house café & bar, meeting room, free WiFi and more. There is also a shared lounge at the property where you can chat with other fellow travelers. Guests can enjoy our summer garden seating and onsite café, as well as live music events. Buffet breakfast available with only organic and local produce being served. Free private parking is available on site.

    Lovely hostel with lots of space. The bathrooms were nice and the comfortable beds gave privacy. All for a very reasonable price. Oh and the breakfast was amazing! Well worth the money.

    Words can't express how pleased I was with my stay at Long Story Short. It's the best hostel I have visited - so clean, modern, spacious, and comfortable. Zero complaints. This is the standard that all hostels should strive for. Not only was the hostel physically great, comfortable beds, ample living and storage space, but the staff were outstanding, helpful and friendly. Thank you staff for such a great stay!

    The best hostel I’ve been to so far! It was luxourus looking and the reception personel was super nice and engaged and drew on a map all places I should go, etc. They have nice breakfast options for vegans as well. Also a towel included, and the bed were already made. The only con was that there were no lockers for big bags in my hostel room, but you can safely store your bags for free if you ask the reception. Highly recommended!

    This is my second time in a hostel but first time in a shared dorm and I loved it. The hostel ticked all the boxes for making my one night stay very pleasant. The bed was very comfortable and clean and the showers and toilets very practical, clean with a sense of privacy. It also has a secure private parking for my rental car which is locked at night but a very kind (and cool looking with dread locks) night security staff took a lot of trouble to let us in. Will definitely consider using again

    One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at! The design is beautiful and every detail was well thought out. I loved the space and the cafe in the lobby. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. Only downside is that random people at the cafe are right near your dorm room. Would definitely stay again!

    This hostel is very much at the luxury end of the scale. It is modern, slick and clean. The rooms offer partitioned dorm beds with individual bedside tables and storage, whilst the shared bathroom is spacious and tidy with natural sound effects playing as you shower - a nice touch. The common areas are well furnished and the cafe is well stocked. The only downside is that the typical backpacker atmosphere is lacking, which makes it difficult for solo travellers to socialise.
