In over six weeks of travelling on our second summer in Europe, this was our favorite hostel by far: its a small apartment that feels like a friends house - super easy to get to know people.
Poets' Corner Hostel is a small, homelike hostel right in the historic centre of Olomouc.
The shared dorm rooms are all big and colourful and we believe them to be the best value accomodation in Olomouc. The private rooms have comfortable double beds and can be set up as twins, doubles, triples or quads (let us know if your first choice is not available here).
Autumn is here and its a great time to visit Olomouc, a city that according to 'Lonely Planet' is one of the top ten hidden gems of Europe. The city comes alive with the return of the student population. Festivals and events are on as well as regular live music.
Most attractions remain open and there are plenty of teahouses, cafes, restaurants and bars to get cosy in too, plus the beer always flows at Olomouc's renowned microbreweries.
The ice hockey season has begun and Olomouc is a leading first division team. The stadium is just around the corner and its great entertainment amongst the vocal local supporters. Regular home games are on and rarely missed!
The parks become an Autumn wonderland under a carpet of red and golden fallen leaves.
We look forward to hosting you for your stay in our amazing little city of Olomouc.
Changes to bookings:
Please let us be clear in advance that there is no way we can 'refund' your excess deposit if you booked too many nights or too many beds.
We simply DO NOT have your deposit. It goes to the booking company and stays there.
It's no problem to change a booking and if you notify us in advance you will only pay us for how long you stay but please bring a printed copy of your booking and conditions with you to check in to be clear about the deposit you originally paid which stays with the booking service so we can avoid any confusion about your deposit. Thanks.
Management can accept payment with credit card but please note that we charge an extra 3% service charge for this. Cash is preferred and makes things simpler.
Please have enough cash for what you've ordered plus 200czk as a key deposit (which you get back when you return the keys on your last day).
There's no curfew in the hostel but to check-in on your first day, please arrive between 08.00 and 21.00. We don't have 24-hour reception and because you guys don't need a babysitter hovering around all night anyway. If you really can't arrive within those 16 hours, please contact us directly and we'll see what can be done.

In over six weeks of travelling on our second summer in Europe, this was our favorite hostel by far: its a small apartment that feels like a friends house - super easy to get to know people. The staff are full of information about town and surrounding area, encouraging you to visit interesting and good-value places that you'd never know about otherwise. The city is very beautiful, and not overcrowded with tourist trash like other places we went. Easy to spend several days here, relaxing and exploring.
