“perfect base for Tartu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

Stayed there for 3 nights with an international group of 71 people in August 2013. It’s a students home that has small but comfortable and well equipped rooms (beds, cupboards, small bathroom, kitchenette, free wireless internet).
Hostel staff was very friendly and helpful regarding all aspects of the stay. The price was very good! There is limited free parking in front of the building.
The hostel is located walking distance to the city center with all the sights, nightlife and several shopping centers. The perfect base if you need budget accomodation in Tartu!
Breakfasts and a dinner for our stay where provided by the bar/cafeteria “Kotka Kelder” that is located in the same building’s basement (separate entrance at right side). The food was good and sufficient (as well as the price) but service was a little slow and not so flexible.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2011

I stayed in a regular room for two nights and was very satisfied. The room cost 20 EUR/night but was more like a small apartment really with an en suite shower room, kitchen area, desk, TV and ample storage space. The only thing missing was wi-fi for my iPad. But if you have a regular laptop they're happy to provide you with a cable. Anyways, free wi-fi is easy to find in downtown restaurants and cafeterias. Service was also very friendly. When I had to leave a day earlier than planned (and paid for), a friendly administrator readily reimbursed for the last night. All in all, a very good experience.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2008

As my girlfriend had studied at the University of Tartu, we were keen to stay in one of the student dorms when we were there. In the event, I was able to snag the suite in the Pepleri dorm, which was fantastic value.

The suite consists of a living room, with a fridge, microwave, hot plate, TV and stereo, a separate bedroom, a sauna and a bathroom. Breakfast isn't included, but with cooking facilities it's quite possible to self-cater. We took the even easier route of buying what we wanted each day at the supermarket.

As hostels, or even student dorms, go, this was a remarkably well-appointed place, and the level of security was great as well. Even though the front desk wasn't always attended, it would have taken a lot of effort for anyone to get into any rooms without being meant to do so.

The major drawback, though, was the location. Pepleri is handy to the train station (a great benefit when we arrived in pouring rain), but a fair distance from the main sights of Tartu, and also from the bus station from which we left.. Still, Tartu isn't a big city by any means once you're in the centre, and needing to walk a bit every day isn't a major issue.
