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.

Excellent breakfast, nice staff, clean hostel and ideal location ! The beds are really comfortable. They also have a fully furnished kitchen. We were only there for 1 night, but our overall experience was really good !

I am not good at writing long reviews so here we go:
The beds are comfortable, the stuff is very nice (!!!), it's very clean, the breakfast is richer than in other hostels, so all in all a hostel I can recommend to everyone.

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!
