Venue Features
The Scene:

A brand new hostel, Long Story Short, which offers profoundly stylish accommodation in a pleasant environment, joining the dots between historic and modern lifestyle, opened its doors in the historical centre of Olomouc in March 2017. The name Long Story Short is mainly derived from the rich history of the place, about which you can hear from the friendly staff. It is also connected to the building’s layout which is one long continuous hall, along with the short-term accommodation it offers.

Design:

The project was initiated by a young courageous businesswoman, Eva Dlabalová, who gained the inspiration during her travels and longer stays abroad. Together with interior designer Denisa Strmisková and the property owner, she rebuilt one whole floor of the extensive historical Podkova building into friendly and cosmopolitan accommodation for today’s nomads, as well as for the more demanding clients from the Czech Republic and the rest of the world. The young dynamic team put together by the creative director and designer, delivered contemporary accommodation which can very well compete with European and world standards.

The whole concept of the hostel was created from scratch, including all its furnishings and the visual layout. The main idea was to highlight the historical genius loci, and with appropriate adjustments, to embrace it with contemporary design. Denisa Strmisková, the interior designer and scenographer, worked on the hostel’s design for two years. An organically arched hall, which leads from the reception to all the rooms, is different from every perspective and surprises you constantly when walking through. The hall’s shape is enhanced by the inconspicuous yet sophisticated use of light, for which the designer was inspired by scenography. Pure white plastering is in contrast with the black details as well as the carefully chosen pastel colours, which were used for upholstery of the sitting furniture arranged into intimate areas.

Standout Venue Features:

The hostel currently offers accommodation in several dorm rooms as well as private rooms, with a total capacity of 56 beds. The private rooms offer a complex level of comfort, all with private bathrooms, not to mention the wedding suite with its open-space bathtub. Bigger dorm rooms, which include a uniquely conceived layout of the sleeping zones, do not include private bathrooms, but this is compensated by the well-equipped shared bathrooms for ladies and gentlemen. The reception, which is simultaneously a common room and a cafe, is the heart of the hostel. The U-shaped layout of the hostel coils around the building’s central courtyard. As well as accommodation, the hostel also offers breakfast and small snacks in a bistro which serves great home-made soups, sandwiches, and desserts. In summer the common areas are extended with an outdoor terrace with an original kitchen island for summer grill parties and a pergola with an outside cocktail bar. You can enjoy the magical garden or relax on the gradient terraces overlooking the petanque pit surrounded by plenty of greenery from the nearby park. The hostel as a venue itself is constantly expanding. Construction of a spacious cafe and a restaurant on the ground floor will begin in the near future.

Extra Perks:
Long Story Short is perfect for small weddings, functions and company parties for up to 120 guests in summer. In winter time it is more suitable for the smaller groups until further expansion of the venue takes place. There is a meeting room on site, suitable for parties of up to 50 people.
The hostel provides all necessary furnishings to host a number of guests mentioned before. Any extra equipment can be arranged in advance.

Food, Restaurants, Cafes:
The Cooking Bar Café

The Cooking Bar serves food based on our Moravian heritage and comes out as honest, straightforward and a bit rough on the edges. Although, we do like a bit of international twist as our inspiration comes from all corners of the world. Seasonal toasts, salads, soups and small nibbles go hand in hand with our drinks menu. Both completely focused on providing quality local produce. We respect different dietary choices so you will always find vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options on our menu.

Bars & Lounges:
The Cooking Bar Café is a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine or chilled draft beer. Our magical surroundings include a secret garden with plenty of greenery and outside bar terrace with seating, that can fit up to 120 guests. We focus on providing our guests with the best produce from local resources which includes various craft microbreweries from around Olomouc and carefully selected wine from the south of the Moravian region. We are a creative bunch so cocktails are definitely on the menu and they change every week if not with seasons.
