Excellent hostel, great location, great facilities and wonderfully friendly staff. I would highly recommend.


The place felt and looked like home Ouh how we wish we didnt have to go. The staff was helpful and super nice Too bad this beautiful City was covered with snow and ice. Bread, jam, coffee and tea We were surprised to find out the breakfast was free. We have nothing bad to say Only to thank you for letting us stay. You will Iove this place too and if not then .....

Everything was great except two things: on the 4th floor without an elevator, and you can feel the springs through the mattress. Great location and atmosphere though.


Nice and quiet. Good location


Excellent location, shower head was broken and peeling paint in bathrooms but otherwise okay. The guy who checked me in was really nice and helpful, but the guy in the morning was very rude. Very unwelcoming.


Is not possible that you find other better location than Terviseks. Very cozy room with nice self-help breakfast. It's good with no time limit for breakfast. Big space for a room with homey atmosphere. Well-equipment kitchen that you can cook what you want. However, it's at 4th (or 3rd?) floor of the building, no lift. Totally recommend!


Excellent location in the most important square in Tartu, basic breakfast included (toast/jam/cereals/milk/coffee/tea) , the room was clean and the staff helpfull. Even though I found it a bit expensive for the service offered, I think the staff should stay always around (they are not always at the helpdesk) and toilets needs to be improved and more cleanings..


A spacious hostel with great common area. The owner Christian was very helpful and accommodating allowing me to use the facilities long after I checked out due to a late bus departure


No place can be more central in Tartu. Rooms are clean. The owner and staff are very nice. The kitchen is big and has everything you need. If you go to Tartu I definitely recommand this place.


Can't say enough about this Hostel! Incredible location right in the old square of beautiful Tartu, clean and well kept facilities, and a friendly/entertaining/knowledgable host in the form of Christian. Thanks for everything!


A pretty nice place. Not a whole lot of atmosphere but that's what the rest of Tartu is for right.. perfect location


Loved the hostel! Really nice staff and a great atmosphere.

Great hostel to come chill out for a few days. Tartu was such a cool city and I very much enjoyed talking with the owner and hanging out in the common area. The people that stayed there while I was there were all very strange but I think that's just luck-of-the-draw so I wouldn't hold it against the hostel.


Had a great time here. It's a very clean, comfortable and spacious apartment with a friendly manager who promotes a relaxed vibe. The location could not be improved, as it is absolutely on the town square. Fantastic student nightlife around the corner, short walk to all parks and monuments in Tartu. In my opinion, this is your best choice when visiting Tartu.


Terviseks is a hostel like your own living Room. Located in the very Center of Tartu it's the Perfect Spot to spend some relaxing days in estonias "Students Capital". The rooms are big and cosy, there are really good Music speakers in the public area , there is a good vibe among guests and hosts and they are present and willing to help and entertain if you are are looking for this. Christian Even invited us for Self-made Italian Dinner one evening. Good Place!


Really friendly staff, the rooms and toalets were clean and from the shower you could get warm water aswell. So all in all, for a few days visit a great place. And you can´t really beat the location either :)


Could make some small investments to improve the toilet, rotten areas/change shower curtains/toilet brushes...Otherwise, great location, and comfy bed


Time passes by and terviseks is still the same, a nice little cosy nest in tje heart of Tartu. Well one thing has changed, the guitar is even worse, wonder how people can be so cruel withmusic instruments? Jacques guide in nordic countries since 1995
