The room was ok, but unfortunately very noisy, because of lot of pubs, which are just behind the corner. I couldnt sleep until 4am:( It was very bad, because I had important business meeting and I felt terrible after night without sleep.Next time I will choose another hostel in the city. I was surprised that other travellers didnt mention this problem with noise. If so, I would choose other hotel.

Room Tip: I dont know if there are some rooms, which dont have windows to courtyard, I am affraid that all roo...

We are very sorry to hear that you found the street noise so uncomfortable. Unfortunately, that is the cost of being situated in the very centre of the city.

Clean tidy hostel - they seemed to be always cleaning! Great view, quiet and spacious rooms, excellent breakfast - cereals, all sorts of bread, hams, cheeses, yogurt etc. The hostel isn't about making money - they would have 7 other beds in the dorms if they wanted to - instead they look after all their guests. All services are cheap - or even free sometimes!

Thank you for such a nice review! Indeed, we clean our hostel every single day and we want our guests to feel like at home. Spacious rooms and comfortable beds (in dorms with curtains) and the atmosphere of the reconstructed building from the 18th century provide our guests with a really unique experience :-)
Hopefully you will come back to our hostel in the future!

Hostel Jacob was a great place to stay. The staff were friendly, the hostel was central and easy to find. When I was there the hostel was quite empty so I had a dorm to myself.
I didn't use teh kitchen facilities, but they looked a bit small, but I expect most people would go out to eat rather than cooking in the hostel.

Being in the centre of town, you do get late night revellers on the street, and if the lift breaks down it's 5 floors with luggage!

When I come back to Brno, I will stay here again.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay! The "late night revellers" are unfortunately something you have to count with, when staying in the very centre of the city :-)

I needed just one night to survive in Brno - near by the centre and including breakfast. I could not have chosen a better place: a quite romantic, not rectangular disposition of the rooms, clean bathrooms, an opulent breakfast inclusive, with a discrete stuff and a minimalistic but practical equipment, which serves the feeling of solidness and safety (safe boxes), and with a vista of St. James (Jacob / Jakub) church were mistakeless. Thanks and good luck! Dana (Prague)

I booked a visit to Brno the day before. It was a late arrival by train and they managed to checked me in at 1am, by leaving me the keys in a safe. The guy on the phone was considerate and welcoming. Rooms were spacious and warm, the included breakfast had various options and the coffee machine worked like a barista. The bathrooms were clean. Stay there one night but could easily stay several days. Excelent choice!

Just awesome, near the city centre...I am speachless. I really liked the lady on the reception, she was hostile, awesome, cheered up, nice and polite. Breakfast was awesome, rooms were clean and I really liked the view.

I stayed here for 5 nights, everything was perfect. Friendly staff, very clean, WiFi works well.
Lockers are available. Convenient location in the centre of Brno, I could easily walk there
from the bus station of the bus coming from Prague.
