The Directions

Don’t expect this place to be quite as advertised online. The rooms are worn, the climate control noisy and old, the staff lethargic, the kitchen dirty and run down, the breakfast past its expiration, the shared bathrooms lacking, and the internet barely functional. Enjoy your stay here!
Jacob’s Inn is poor value for money in the grand scheme of the backpacking world, but if you’re on a budget in you may still find yourself here as we did. If you can recommend something better, post your tip here as the travel community would certainly benefit from being able to avoid this one.
