Great accommodation, comfortable beds, free lockers, good kitchen facilities (lots of fridge space), friendly and well-informed staff, comfortable communal area. Bonus points for eco-friendliness. The weather was horrible but this was a nice place to hang out!

3 of us stayed here in Feb 2014, we loved it. Staff were so friendly, especially Sirli. Only issue we had was making the mistake of sharing keys, no 24 hr reception so get your own key if you are going to party. Beds clean and comfortable. Good kitchen. No worries!

I was horrified seeing the prices of accommodation in Tartu. We just needed a place to sleep and refresh ourselves in a cozy and clean place, no extravagance. This is how I found Looming hostel in booking.com. Our private room with a double bed was painted in cheerful colours and in was impeccably clean. The shared shower room was ok,... More

Nice and quiet place to stay which is located a 15 min walk from the bus station/old town. Easy to find as it's one street just off of the main road. Staff were all really friendly. Fully equipped kitchen but only two showers and two toilets might be an issue when the hostel is full. The common room is more... More

Clean, friendly, nice and awesome terrace. Very nicely decorated and fosters green, eco-friendly lifestyle. The hostel has a well equiped shared kitchen. We slept in the dorm and were happy that there were no bunkbeds for once. Only downgrade is the pretty far way to the center.

The location was good, the room spacious (we got a double room) and the bed extremely comfortable. Everything was very clean. There are nice common spaces including a wonderful terrace where is easy to hang out with people and even watch a Ioga lesson. Staff was friendly and very useful. Towels can be rented for a very reasonable price (1... More

This is a very hippy orientated hostel, a nice relaxed atmosphere with amazingly friendly staff. However the hostel location is about 20 minutes walk out of the city and the rooms are a little stuffy and smelly, also during the time we were there the common room was being used as a sleeping room for a group. But overall if... More

The hostel is well situated, quiet and clean. There's a small terrace where you can hang out and there's also a little kitchen with all necessary things (be ready to sort garbage). Some furniture in rooms is hand-made which is cool. The staff is nice and friendly. Nothing to complaint about at all! Recommended.

This place has an emphasis on environmentally positive practices. Most of the furniture is recycled and they have a good waste recycling system in place. I liked my stay here a lot and it will be my first choice the next time I visit Tartu. It's not in the center of town but within walking distance. The only complaint I... More
