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.

    I had a lovely time in this hostel! Staff was super friendly and very helpful and the atmosphere is extremely welcoming and homely. Super easy to start talking to people if you want to, but just as easy to have some time to yourself. What I was most impressed with was the cleanliness, in the rooms, the kitchen and the bathrooms! It's all cleaned with eco-friendly substances (such as soda and vinegar) and it obviously works! Highly recommend this if you're looking for a relaxed, friendly place.

    A really nice hostel, I especially liked the terrace on the roof and the couch area inside. Rooms are simple but spacious, individual bed lights and in-room lockers would be nice to have. Facilities were clean and the eco-concept is cool, too. It’s a 15-20 min walk to the city center. I’d stay there again.

    Overall a nice hostel, good facilities and friendly staff. People smoke on the balcony, unfair on non smokers if we want to enjoy that space. The smell drifts into the adjacent dorm room. Noisy at night time, on first night, halls echo and people came home at 2am stamping up and down hallway, shouting. On 2nd night, 3 ppl in the room were snoring, no where for me to go as was unable to sleep in room. Stayed up all night, so 2 poor nights sleep. Advertised a 6 bed dorm. We're 7 beds in the room.

    Very little atmosphere and no organised events. Beds were extremely uncomfortable. Rooms and facilities were very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Security lockers were not in the rooms and you had to pay a deposit to use one.
