    I really felt at home here. I love any hostel that feels like a house especially since I travel for long periods of time. The beds are really comfy, the kitchen is well stocked. The patio is super cute and has peppers that you can cook with. Staff and volunteers are very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again, I miss it already!

    Had a wonderful stay and really appreciate the way staff went above and beyond to assist with obscure requests. There were not enough lockers for us to put valuables in when I first arrived, but once the occupancy dropped I was able to get a locker at the opposite end of the hostel from my bed.

    Great hostel with lovely staff. Really cute decor and an awesome sun deck where you can eat, chill out etc. lovely experience! Nice neighbourhood too. Nice friendly vibe at the hostel. My one wish is that they create storage lockers. I had a tiny little locker in my dorm room but the there was only 2 lockers total and 6 beds.

    Loved my stay at looming hostel in Tartu, it is a very relaxing place and they really focus on the eco-friendly aspect which is a real bonus. Great rooms, showers and kitchen facilities in particular! The main drawback is the location, it is very close to the train station, but about 20-25minute walk from the city centre.

    The hostel is small but very welcoming. The staff are so hospitable and are eager to help you in any way. It's a great & easy place to meet other people when travelling around. Loved the small terrace aswell. Will definitely come back when in the Baltics again.

    I found the hostel a bit expensive for what the offer. Almost 20€ for a shared bed in a large room (even there was an Ukrainian family living there). While the kitchen is small the terrace is pleasant.
