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

    A good house with a good balcony. Good to live unless you bring heavy stuff because the hostel is in third floor without any elevator.

    The hostel is really nice: there's a huge rooftop terrace, beds were very comfy, and the showers, toilets & kitchen top notch. Plus the design is very pretty & unique, and everything is made out of recycled materials. However, it was really expensive (19 euros a dorm bed), given that it's Tartu and not say, London. But maybe everything there is equally expensive. It's a bit out of town, around 20-25 min walk, but in a way it's worth it since the area around it is very pretty.

    Not bad overall but the location is not as central as preferred. There is however a cool new area, Aparaaditehas, nearby with good places to eat and drink. No lockers in the rooms or anywhere that I saw. Place was clean and tidy with a great terrace area.

    Cute little hostel. A bit far from the city Center, but walkable. Cute terrace to sit and chat with other folks - they need to unlock it earlier in the morning though.

    This place ist NOT 100 m away from old town but more or less 1.2 km. At least 15-20 min walking. Staff tried to be nice and helpful. Unfortunately the roof top terrace closes 11 pm. Kirchen and WC was OK / good. Too soft matresses. Hard to sleep on.
