Poets' Corner Hostel
Located in the historic centre of Olomouc, this retro-styled backpackers' hostel located in converted flats on the 3rd and 4th floors of a turn-of-century building offers dormitory and private rooms, free Wi-Fi, shared kitchen areas and an inviting common room to relax in.
We offer plenty of information about the city and region, as well as plenty of amenities, such as free tea and coffee, a book swap, board games for those rainy days and laundry service for when you need to freshen up.
The colourful and stylised rooms at Poets' Corner Hostel have wooden floors, oriental carpets and vintage furnishings, with a few of the rooms and the balcony looking out onto Saint Wenceslas Cathedral and Holy Hill in the distance.
All private and dormitory rooms here have shared bathrooms, and the communal kitchen facilities provide the perfect place to cook up a meal and meet new friends. All bedding is provided, and towels are available free upon request.
It's easy to get to and from the hostel, and there are tram and bus stops just round the corner. The centre of town is just a 3-minute walk away, allowing you to quickly get to all the restaurants, cafés, pubs, shops and cinemas that Olomouc has to offer. And if you need any help or more information, we Poets are always happy to assist! Welcome!

***Poets’ Corner Hostel is located in a turn of the century building, and as such, it was not build with a lift (elevator). We are located on the 3rd and 4th floor of this building, which can be difficult for some. Though we cannot install a lift, we are more than happy to come downstairs and assist you with your luggage if you need! When you buzz the door of the Hostel, just inform us you could use a hand, and we’ll be right down.***
