Terviseks is a home away from home for travellers wanting to visit Tartu and explore the South of Estonia. Our Backpackers Bed and Breakfast, located on the Town Square, is run by Canadians, English and Estonians who will make you feel as welcome and as comfortable as possible. Tartu is Estonia's University Town and home to 20,000 students so you don't need to ask if you can find a good party here! There are several quirky little museums so if you want to see a 5kg pair of testicles, or the actual offices that the KGB worked in you can do it in Tartu. If that is too much you can simply enjoy the parks, old buildings and river. We were responsible for the twice winner of Hostelworld's "Best in Country" and bring all that experience and knowledge of the town to our, and your, new home.

I had not visited hostels for a long time and this place was very nice change from hotels. The staff was friendly and the common room where guests can spend time is good way meeting new people. I had a single room and it was very basic. Bathroom is shared but that was in good shape, they also provide a towel. Free tea and coffee, and breakfast. There is also kitchen in which you can prepare you own food. The location is super: on the main old town square!

I immediately liked this place despite having to climb 4 storeys up with my luggage and being lost in the square but I rang them up and the receptionist gave me very good directions. Staff are not there 24/7 but I felt safe still. The whole house looks super cosy and is the only hostel in Baltics I could do some washing on my own without paying for laundry! Lounge is also very nice, so is the kitchen. Simple breakfast - toasts and jam are provided. WiFi was good but I had data so didn't use it much. The bathrooms are also clean and I was provided with towels. But there were only 2 so u need to wait a while as toilet and bathroom are together. My only complaints are the pillows are already outta shape, bed could be a lot firmer and in the evening in spring.. many insects flew into the room. Can't tell what they are but they were gone by night time. More cleaning would be good, was a bit dusty in my dorm. Other than that, it is like a home away from home.

The hostel is perfectly located on the main square. It's clean, well équipée, with a nice kitchen, good bathroom and a beautiful common room. Breakfast is available at any time, which is good if you leave early. Welcome was good too. Wi-Fi everywhere. Only little flaw: the maîtresses are too soft.

I arrived in Tartu by bus, from the busstation it is a 10minute walk. The location of the hostel great. It is at the town hall square and easy to find. When entering the building you have to go to the 4th floor. The stairs are quite dark, an extra light should be great :) Hostel itself is nice. Great common area, great kitchen and breakfast. Bed slept good!

I liked this place very much when I stayed in Tartu and I will probably come back once again. The hostel is situated on the main square, an easy walking distance to all the happening in the city. They allowed me to check in earlier and didn't bother me in the morning when I slept in the common room after having a few too many beers out in town. Tartu is not a tourist paradise and finding cheap and nice places like this in such towns is always a big plus.
