The Hostelz.com Review - Genuine, independent review you can trust.
Ubytovna Marie is a clean and affordable place to stay in Olomouc. The city is beautiful, historic, and full of cultural activities -- all without the hordes of tourists you'll find in Prague. The hostel also makes a great base for many day trips to surrounding castles, caves, and historic sights.
Ubytovna Marie has a good location right on the edge of the compact, historic downtown. It's a bit of a walk from the train/bus stations, but so are all the central accommodations. Trams One, Seven, and Three stop quite near the hostel (though Three takes the long way). Nearby, you'll find plenty of restaurants, cafes, and parks. There's also a small supermarket not too far, and a shopping mall with a movie theater. The only problem may be the noise at night, as it's on a fairly busy road. Fortunately, it's set slightly back from the street, so it's not too bad.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The rooms are more like student dorms instead of true hostel dorms. You'll only be sharing with one other person (of the same sex) -- or you might have the room to yourself. You can also pay more for an assured private. Rooms include a desk, wardrobe, and even a fridge. The common bathrooms are down the hall, separated by sex. Toilets have sinks and soap. Showers are big, and though they're of the annoying push-button variety; everything else about them is nice, from the big shower space to the radiator/towel rack, sink, and mirror. Everything is very, very clean.
Ubytovna Marie isn't a particularly social hostel, but there is a (somewhat sterile) common area with tables, chairs, and a TV downstairs, along with a very nice kitchen where each room has its own little locker of plates, glasses, and cutlery. Facilities here are also very clean. Reception has good opening hours and free info, but not all staff speak much English. Wi-Fi is good throughout the hostel.
Ubytovna Marie is a good place to stay. You can feel comfortable with the cleanliness and save money with the fridge and the good kitchen -- although Olomouc has some pretty great restaurants, which you might also want to try. The hostel is cheaper the longer you stay, and with all there is to do in and around Olomouc, it's not a bad idea to stay awhile.
