Really special hostel. Feels comfortable like a home! Nice staff, told me all the sights even though I didn't have enough time :( But one woman told me about a poetry event at a local club and I had so much fun there, great recommendation. They helped me arrange transport to Brno and so polite and friendly. Only I wish...

We have booked a visit via Booking and we enjoyed two nights spent there. Interior is very nice - kitchen is available, as well as common part of living room. Coffee and tea is for free in the kitchen, maps prepared by Owners - are great! Room's decoration is simple, but really cosy. Maybe bathroom is one thing which could...

I booked this property via booking.com but was unable to stay here, because it was closed. Ringing the bell didn't make a difference. Apparently the reception closes earlier than my arrival time, which was not made clear during the booking process, and is not stated anywhere before you finish the booking. I had to search a different accomodation late at...

Hi Julia, As I pointed out in the message I sent you, our opening hours are quite clear under policies which is most certainly visible before you complete a booking. Take the time to check before you make a false statement like that. My message was not rude. I am sorry you interpreted it as such. You booked a room...

Friendly and cozy place despite looks. Near some popular places to visit. Only staying one night but still very well received and well advised on what to visit inthe city. It's only a shame that the city is so quiet during summer time.

This is my third trip back to Olomouc and my third time to stay at Cosy Corner (formerly Poet's Corner) hostel. A friend and I were on a cycling trip, and we opted to stay in a private twin room. The room was lovely, bright and spacious, and Kevin was very welcoming. He gave us great recommendations for dinner, a...

It was a cozy hostel conveniently located in Olomouc. Friendly staff who always responded promptly with questions before trip. We were warmly greeted and easy check in. We had 3 rooms with a group of 10 so it was a good place for us. Basic accommodations but beds were comfy and we had bedside lights, ample storage, great window. Also...

My favorite hostel in whole Olomouc I have ever been. Nice interier and excelent staff. It is located in the center near all shops, restaurants and public transport. I always meet cool and interesting people there. Ideal for students outside of Olomouc.

I expected a lot more judged on ratings. Probably ok for back packers but a private room was poor value. I had one of 3 rooms on the 3rd floor, 67steps up from street. The room was very basic, no TV, bedside light or hanging space. A small table light and even a hanging post would have helped. One W.C....

Just like the backpacker's hostels of my youth. Cheap, cheerful, cosy accommodation. Aptly named. Adequate kitchen and suitable ablutions. Kept clean n tidy by a friendly humorous proprietor Lucie. Was an enjoyable base to explore a vibrant Olomouc. The map they provided is very helpful. A good folder of local sights is available in the lounge.

Stayed at this hostel last year while interrailing around Europe with a friend, loved it so much that we worked our way back there to stay for a few days once our train passes had expired.

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
