Property Description

Looming Hostel is one of the first and only environmentally friendly hostels in Estonia, Tartu!

We are dedicated to green and eco-living; bohemian decorating style and aim to minimize our operations impact on the environment. We hold in high regard our commitment to reusing, recycling, renovating and reducing our ecological footprint.

We implement the following environmental principles:
Most of our furniture is from second hand shops, reused or made from recycled materials;
We use resources effectively and economically;
We prefer natural and environmentally friendly materials;
All cleansers we use have eco or nature-friendly label or we use soda and vinegar;
We produce as little trash as we can. We sort the generated waste into household waste, packaging, paper and cardboard, bottles and biowaste;
We train our employees to be environmentally conscious and let them apply their knowledge on a daily basis;
We also encourage our guests to act responsibly towards the environment and share their knowledge with us and other guests.

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 Kastani apartments and children's daycare center. We share inner yard with Tartu Yoga Center. In the nearby community center, Aparaaditehas, there are 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, comfy living room area for relaxing, books and games and a cozy roof terrace with herbs and tomatoes.

Good location, only 10-20 minute walk from good cocktails by the river. Beautiful hostel, gorgeous plants all around. Beautifully decorated. They sell second hand clothing, which is cool! The terrace is cozy, lots of light but plenty of shade too. Slight negatives include: At top of flight of stairs, ergo not accessible 🤷🏼‍♀️ You can’t lock your bags up in your room, however there are lockers in the corridor which I presume you can lock your stuff away safely during the day.

Accessibly close to the train station and to Aparaaditehas art/restaurant complex. You can walk for 20 minutes to downtown. Well equipped kitchen and space to store your food. A nice deck to chill on (or dry any wet clothing) on sunny days. The staff was helpful in helping me figure out transportation options to go for a nice hike outside Tartu. I happened to be alone in a spacious dorm room, which was even better. The bathroom sink was out of liquid soap for 1.5 days, it needs a better mirror.
