Property Description

Looming Hostel is one of the first and only environmentally friendly boutique hostels in Estonia.

'Looming' in Estonian means 'Creation or artwork' - that's why everything is in constant change here.

Looming Hostel offers a new artistic style of accommodation in Tartu, close to the train station - cosy, warm and clean guestrooms are all created by different artists - everything we use for decoration is 99 % reused! We prefer natural materials, small ecological footprint, creativity and fun! We are a proud member of Estonian Social Enterprise Network.

Our guestrooms are located on the attic floor of an old art noveau building completed in the year 1910. The building is also home to a theatre venue and children's daycare center. We share inner yard with Tartu Yoga Center. In the nearby community center Aparaaditehas, there is a printing museum, art exhibitions, different restaurants, a bakery, little shops and several other businesses.

Our hostel has a kitchen for self-catering, with all the necessary equipment, free WiFi everywhere, free parking, comfy reception area for relaxing, books and games and a cozy sunterrace. We also organize different workshops, movie and talk nights monthly.

Looming is an animal-friendly hostel, so bring your pets with you!

NB! We are open from 10am to 10pm. View House Rules

    I only stayed at Looming for 1 night but had a great stay. The staff were lovely, and the room was comfortable. Someone even called me to give me the building code as they weren't sure if I had it. I love little thoughtful touches like that.

    Our short stay in Looming hostel was really pleasant - the hostel is clean, aesthetic (rooms have a wonderful retro design) and provides on one hand spaces for conversations, social interactions; and on the other it is calm and home-like which ensures a comfortable sleep. We vividly recommend!

    I have had two stays at the Looming Hostel so far and if I'm ever going back to Tartu, I'll be sure to make it three. The hostel has a cozy atmosphere, with very creative interior features that you won't find in other bigger hostels. Also the staff is friendly, the rooms and kitchen are clean, and it's in a quiet part of town. Overall, I am very happy about my stays and definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the city!

    A very clean and friendly place. Located a bit outside the centre but in a quiet and green area. Excellent kitchen and rooftop terrace. One suggestion - please have a night light and power plug next to the bunks. Otherwise it's great.

    Remove musty smell at the hostel, clean the kitchen. In toilet there should be paper towels. I won't dry my hands with the same towel as others do in a public toilet. Put normal curtains in the bathroom. Bath towels should be included in the price.

    First of all, they charged me more money because I have booked through Hostel World, some people who booked from booking. Com they were paying 16 euro per night and I was paying 21 euros, people who were live there, they all were paying 16 euro, staff attitude is worst, when I complained about this cost, they misbehaved me that we are not responsible, because u have booked from hostel world, ask them for cost, after that day staff behavior is bad with me, I have worst experience of living,
