“Very nice stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Upon arrival I was welcomed by very friendly staff and introduced to the hostel. The hostel was neat, clean, and hospitable. The facilities were good, and the breakfast was nice as well. In short: a very nice stay.

Skvělá lokace přímo v centru Brna, čisté a hezky zařízené prostory, chutné snídaně v ceně, WiFi, a hlavně: měl jsem štěstí na recepční: 2 moc milé a příjemné slečny.

Room Tip: I was in a shared room with 11 beds, and it was okay. They have a box where you can lock your expens...

An excellent hostel. Very central location, great view of the square from the rooms. The beds are good, rooms quite modern and lots of toilets and showers, no lines anywhere. Very helpful and friendly staff and breakfast is such a great bonus in the morning. We could even park directly in front of the hostel in the middle of Brno old town. Nothing but good things to say. Thank you, hostel Jacob.

Not able to afford the flights to Prague a joint birthday celebration weekend took us to Brno - a beautiful, understated city. Hostel Jacob came up on Bookings.com as a good central location. The location is great, the staff wonderful and the apartment had everything for a comfy stay, including herb teas, oil salt and pepper, as well as washing up liquid and equipment, which is lovely because there is nothing more irksome than having to shop for those items just for the sake of a couple of days!
Unfortunately right under the apartments is a nightclub, which made sleeping impossible on Friday night. The music was thumping through the whole building and unruly crowds of teenagers flooded the square screaming until well into the not so early hours of the morning. I can't imagine how the locals can stand the weekly torture!! If it was my neighbourhood I would campaign to relocate the club somewhere as far away as possible out of any residential area and in the meantime would call the police to create order.

We are happy that you liked our apartment :-) As for the noise from the club - that is, unfortunately, the disadvantage of being in the very centre of the city.
