LOOMING in Estonian means creation or work of art. In English it bears a meaning of a mirage, Fata Morgana, something that gives a feeling of existence. This is the collective creation of our guests and staff. Even if everything we have created may at some point transform into something else, change its shape or color, a cosy bed and LOOMING will still be there and waiting for You!

In Looming, all of us work for giving You a feeling of home. We try to follow the needs and wishes of each person as much as possible. Each step we take is on the road to a greener and environmentally friendlier Planet: we give a new life to old things by fixing, building and improving them. You can lock the shower room door with an old ice skate, the book shelf is built from an ancient farm house floor, old keys have turned into pegs and on the terrace you can find tomatoes growing in a cast-off aquarium.

We are located in a historic and culturally rich neighborhood very close to the train station. City centre is a 10-minute walk from us.

You can check in to the Hostel from 2pm until our closing time at 10pm. Check-out is at 11am in the morning. If You happen to arrive earlier than 2pm or later than 10pm, please let us know about it in advance. Our downstairs door is closed at night time and visitors can only enter with a code.

You can park for free in our courtyard. The hostel has free WiFi in all of the rooms. All visitors can use the kitchen, spend time in our dining room, common area and on the roof terrace. We are also happy to offer You breakfast (2€) if requested. Tips for a time worthwhile come from our workers! It is also possible to visit us with pets (5€/night). We offer extra beds to rooms if one wishes to share room with many people (12€ ).

With an environmentally friendly activity we wish to reduce ecological footprint of people visiting/living in Tartu. 99% of our interior is from recycled materials, we sort waste into 6 different categories daily and work towards the goal of producing our own electricity and switching to Zero Waste. In addition to that we aspire to inspire our visitors to realize their ideas, think creatively and in the same rhythm with nature. We are also a proud member of Estonian Social Enterprise Network.

Besides accommodation, talk evenings and workshops take place regularly in the Hostel. Everybody with an open mind is always welcome.

Looming is waiting for You!
