This is a super nice hostel! Each bed is XL Twin in it's own visually private space. Atmosphere is very nice, it's very clean and comfortable. Toast and jam, oatmeal, tea/coffee for breakfast. Cozy fireplace in the living room, communal kitchen and dining. Weekly rate is $225.00, nightly rate starts at $45.00.

The space

The hostel is perfect for singles, couples and groups up to 16. Each guest gets his/her own bed and privacy in their own micro-room. And since there is a shower room with 3 showers and two sinks, guests can get up and out faster by not having to wait for the shower when someone else is using the toilet or brushing their teeth. For example, three guests can shower at the same time in complete privacy, while 2 more guests can be brushing their teeth, drying hair, shaving etc., and two more can be in the two half baths (toilet & sink in each). You can all stay together but still retain your own space to sleep and not have to wait for an entire bathroom to free up for your use.

Guest access

Kitchen equipped with Frig., large toaster oven (broil/bake), crock pot, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, dishwasher. There is a communal living room, dining and kitchen for the guests. There is also an outdoor fire-pit and a huge patio on the back plus a large front porch. ATTENTION SKIERS & SNOWBOARDERS! - we have a heated ski gear shed to store your gear overnight. The shed is on the back patio and accessible from the outside, which keeps the hostel clean and gives you warm and dry boots in the morning! The shed becomes mountain bike storage in the summer!

Interaction with guests

The owners live on site in separate quarters but under the same roof. So we are available if you need anything 24/7.

This is the "Hilton" of hostels! The place was immaculate and expertly operated. As an avid masters cyclist I needed simplicity and value. I don't come to hang in the room but to put some serious miles in the mountains and a nice place to sleep. Got way more than expected as Holly the owner put together a very beautiful establishment. I will be back!

Harmony Hostel is a nicely-appointed home away from home. The kitchen, dining and den areas are clean, quiet, open and welcoming. Holly and Sam provide books, games and movies in the den, plus coffee, tea, oatmeal and apples in the kitchen. Sleeping quarters are cozy, comfortable and immaculate. We never worried about the security of our belongings. There were about a dozen people the night we stayed, and there was never a wait for the bathroom, shower or sink! Other guests were respectful and quiet during the evening/night. Centrally located, Harmony Hostel was an easy drive to Beech Mountain, Banner Elk, Newland, Lees-McRae, etc. Highly recommend.
