My experience at Looming Hostel was brilliant. The staff were great, the amenities clean and the access to local information incredible. Tartu itself is a great little town with lots to explore, but my experience would've been dull if it wasn't for the wonderful people at Looming Hostel. The staff were on the pulse of the city, they knew where...

I stayed at the looming hostel for two nights, and it is certainy one of the best hostels I have stayed at in my life. It is clean, the staff is really friendly and it is a true eco-hostel, with the interior primarily made from upcycling masterials. If I'll be in Tartu, I will return!

Cosy and comfortable, not expensive place. Very nice and friendly staff. Clever and green solutions in interior design. Toilet and bathroom outside the room, but this was no big problem. Kitchen for cooking your own meal.

This hostel located nearby the train station (and a good 10 minutes of walking to the city center) is actually one of the cosiest hostel I have stayed in.

Nice hostel not too expensive with a very nice terrace and fairly good beds. It is a bit out from city center (10 min) but it is really okay. There is a furnished kitchen, very interesting toilets and particularly friendly staff!

This truly was the cosiest hostel I've been to so far (and I have been to quite a few). The staff was lovely and helpful, my room was clean and bright. Loved the funky style both in the common and sleeping areas. Excellent value for money! Kudos for being so eco-friendly!
