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, tea/coffee, oatmeal and fruit for breakfast. Cozy fireplace in the living room, communal kitchen and dining. Weekly rate is $225.00 and nightly rate is $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

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.

Harmony was a fantastic Air B&B and sets the bar high for hostels! A well-oiled machine that makes everyone feel welcome, is clean, a perfect balance between privacy and community, and complete with a kind and gracious host! A great place to stay and connect with others and the surrounding area. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a lovely experience!

Harmony is a beautiful hostel, slightly more upmarket than what you would find in Europe. Excellent value for money! I would say it's for the mature traveller, this is not a party hostel but it also doesn't claim to be. We checked in quite late in the evening and Holly was still waiting for us - helpful and friendly.

Harmony Hostel is a beautiful lodge built with care by Holly, who really believes in hostelling. Hostels aren't very well known in America yet, but all over the world they are places where solo travelers can go for safe, friendly lodging that allows them to explore the area while also meeting other travelers. Harmony Hostel is designed for a mature hostel traveller-- the private small room was very nice. She keeps the hostel immaculate and is very friendly and welcoming. It was a very nice place to spend the night.

As an experienced Airbnb host (in Philadelphia) myself, i was struck by how Harmony Hostel offers both charm and an immaculate condition. I hadn't stayed at a hostel for lo-these-many-years, so it was an adventure ... the location was easy to find, the parking convenient, the host as hospitable as anyone would hope. She's also a designer ... this space is her creation and the details worked out without being formulaic like a motel or hotel chain. And what a bargain! Kudos!

Great hostel. Very clean, nice private area with bed. I've stayed in Hostels all over the world and was definitely the nicest most upscale.

Harmony Hostel is a wonderful place situated perfectly at the base of Beech mountain and just outside of Banner Elk. I really enjoyed my stay here, from the clean and convenient accomodations, to the friendly staff and fellow guests. I've stayed in hostels before, and this one certainly exceeded my expectations. I'd gladly recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy the beautiful mountain, from single traveler to groups alike I'll definitely be back. Thanks again, Holly!
