Located right in the Old Town. Close to all the interesting tourist sites. Resturants and shops close by. The staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and confortable with a nice view of the old town.

The hostel has good location,about 10 minutes by walking from Brno train station. There are many restaurants around the hostel, so it's very convenient. The staff has good patient, really polite and helpful. But the cleanliness is poor and the locker is not in the room. Overall: not clean enough.

I had a very good stay at hostel Jacob with two friends of mine. It is extremely clean, friendly and we felt like home. Breakfast is great too. The atmosphere is not that exciting, but all the staff is very kind and gave us great advice about the city.

The people at the reception is really helpful. I am a Chinese and needed a adapter for my charger, and the guy at the reception don't really have a suitable one. But he tried really hard to find one for me (though failed). He kept coming to me with new solutions. The wifi is very fast among hostels I know.... More

I was pleasantly surprised at how nice hostel Jacob was! It is well designed, clean, tidy, spacious and has great facilities. The breakfast is simple but there is plenty of it and more that adequate for the day. Great price, friendly staff and proper coffee..

I only stayed for one night, and here´s what I found: a warm, cozy, and clean room, comfortable bed, working internet, helpful and very kind staff, and fully equipped and again clean kitchen. They served continental breakfast with no trace of real fruits or vegetables, which is kind of pity, but other things made up for it, such as free... More
