My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in a double room, shared bathroom. Ian was a great host, providing us with good information about the city, including one of the best map/info sheets I've seen, and making us feel at home. The room and common areas were very clean and comfortable and the quiet location made for a...

Poets' Corner scores on all points: ideal location in the city center (there's no need really to use public transport), informative, welcoming and ready-to help staff (great recommendations and such a well-put together map!), design (hip retro feel), cleanliness, amazing value (most likely the only budget accommodation option in Olomouc) and so much more. Having explored the city's museums and...

Poets Corner is located in the fourth and fifth floor in one of the Olomouc apartment houses in the city centre. It's close to the tram station so easy accessible by tram from the main train station. Staff is very friendly and they spent a couple of minutes with us providing us basic information about the city, good restaurant and...

The rooms are very simple. Fi not equiped with bedlamps. One armchair in a corner with a very dark dampshade. But every three bedrooms in an apaťrtment share a kitchen, living corner and a bathroom. Old fashioned decoration gives it a homy feel. I paid 30 euro for a single. Nice in the center. Sure i am content with my...

If you'd have enough of the crowds of Prague, Olomouc is the place to head to and Poet's Corner is the hostel in which to stay. Great staff, who take the time to sit with you and chat about what there is to see and do, as well as lovely fellow travellers who are eager to go out and explore...

Rather informal and easygoing place located really close to most of the town's attractions. Staff was really great and welcoming, and all of the necesary information was really easy accesable from the hostel's booklets. Beds were comfy, aswell as common areas, but my favourite was the balcony with quite a view. Thank again for Ian and the rest of the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cosy Corner Hostel (formerly known as Poets Corner Hostel) is a traditional backpackers hostel located in the wonderful, historic city of Olomouc which is recognized as one of Europe's true hidden gems. The hostel features mixed dorm rooms for the budget minded traveller as well as spacious and stylish private rooms with some antique furniture. Some of our rooms have a nice view too. The 'heart' of the hostel is the cosy common room complete with armchairs you can sink into, perfect for our guests to gather, make new friends and share travel stories, or just curl up to some good music or a book. We have a book exchange and some boardgames too. Cosy Corner Hostel also has a fully equipped guest kitchen which is a great place to prepare your own meals or enjoy a bit of 'potluck' with your fellow guests. Good teas and coffee are always available. Bathrooms are shared but only a few steps away from any room. There is also a cute little balcony with a gorgeous view of St Wenceslas Cathederal and the hills beyond. Free WI-FI is available throughout the entire hostel. Towels are provided for all private rooms and are free on request for dorm room guests. Smoking is NOT permitted inside the hostel. We allow pets but only for guests staying in private rooms. Please inform us at the time of booking if you have a pet. The hostel also provides LOTS of information about Olomouc and surrounds and all guests are given our customized map of the town to help them get the most out of their stay. We also have a laundry service for guests which is 100 CZK per load but FREE if you stay 3+ nights. We enjoy hosting travellers from all over the world and often socialize with our guests, be that for a meal, coffee, drinks, an ice hockey game in the winter and occasionally on daytrips out of town. We look forward to meeting you and helping you get the most out of one of Europe's hidden gems - OLOMOUC. ... more   less
