“Cheap, cheerful and a whole lot more”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

An excellent place to rest one's head in Prague. 10 - 15 minutes walk from the Old Square and incredible value. The man on reception could not have been more helpful, the rooms are very quirky, comfortable and spacious and you have access to two computers and plenty of tea and coffee in the kitchen. Would highly recommend to other travellers. We are in our 50s and were probably double the age of most of the other residents but this did not seem to be a problem for any of us. Breakfast in the neighbouring hostel was also good value.

We stayed at ArtHarmony and loved it. Imaginative rooms with plenty of space so it was very easy to relax when in the room. Great dining kitchen too. The staff could not have been more helpful. I can see why it has good ratings.

Room Tip: all rooms were great

ARTHARMONY is a terrific hotel/ hostel right in the thick of wonderful things to do in the city of Prague. It is located right at a tram stop for about 10 different lines and is only 2 1/2 blocks from a major Metro station. It is family oriented and has quirky but beautiful and individual decorations in each room. Room Frederick where we stayed was a cool forest, Sam is a meadow full of flowers. Dita is a sunny African themed room. The staff is friendly and helpful to the max and all are fluent in English. The cleaning staff works nonstop to keep everything neat and tidy. There are individual apartment rooms with mini kitchens and bathroom. There are private rooms with private bath. There are private rooms that share bathrooms (but the bathrooms have individual mini rooms with shower toilet and sink so you still have privacy) and there are hostel rooms. The very high ceilings in this converted old building allow the rooms to have a lower level with bed and lounge/table area and up the stairs in the loft are more bed areas. In addition, there is a common kitchen fully equipped, a computer area with 2 computers (and wifi all over) chairs benches and a piano in the hallway lounge area, and a huge table for meals , snacks, card games and discussions. Age range is from small children to senior citizens and everyone is friendly. lLots of student age travelers.

Room Tip: Because of the two and a half flights of stairs to reach reception, this place is not good for disab...

Great place. I would stay here again. Staff speaks English very well. Quirky but fun rooms. Wifi, dishes, and towels included. They have got maps and handouts for the city to help travelers. Bathroom and beds were good. Everything was swell for the most part.
Not perfect things:
Parking was very tight for us, but most people don't have a car so that is not an issue. No elevator might be a problem for some people, but not for us or most people. The location is not in the center of town where you will be doing your site seeing. It's a good walk or a short metro/tram ride. Really not a problem, but just not an ideal 5.
note: we were in a 3 person private room, 3 adults

The setting is unique and inded exciting, the staff most helpful and the service efficient. And the hostel´s location in the very centre of Prague is a bonus. Simply a great value for money proposition. Had a great night there the other day!

This hostel is possibly the most amazing place I have ever stayed at because of how unique it is.

Firstly, the hostel is in a great location close to everything with plenty of markets and mini markets around.

The man who works at the reception is the most helpful and inviting hostel manager we have come across. He provided us with all the information we needed for our stay, gave us maps and showed us around the hostel. Even showing us into a few of the others rooms because they are all so fascinating!

Our room was African Sunset themed and it was so nice. The colours beautiful, it was extremely clean and the beds are so comfortable.

The bathrooms are also themed and decorated beautifully and are also extremely clean.

There is a kitchen with tea and coffee, a place to store food and an area to eat.

The wifi is great had no issues and they also have two computers guests can use free of charge.

I cannot recommend this hostel enough, it was our best hostel experience in Europe and I can imagine we will be returning and telling people to stay here.

Do yourself a favour and stay here :D

Dear Lord, where to begin? True to it's name, fantastic decor (think rainforest treehouse, turned up to 11) in the rooms as well as the bathrooms. If you're the type who appreciates this sort of thing, then definitely opt for the mixed dorms as you'll have easy access to the lower floor bathrooms, which are much more uniquely designed compared to those on the upper floor. Has several desktops in case you need to use them, and the wifi connectivity is good in all the rooms. Staff were also lovely and were ever ready to answer any queries we had with a warm smile. Location is also pretty good (about 5-10 minutes walk from the closest Metro), plus there are a couple of supermarkets located nearby if you need groceries.

Atmosphere-wise, the hostel is pretty quiet normally and we didn't see other guests on the premises that often. If you're looking to make lots of friends during your hostel stay then this probably isn't the place for you. But if you prefer a quiet and relaxing stay in a nice environment, then this definitely is. I guess the biggest negative I can think of is that the key ring they give you is a little on the bulky side, so it's a bit troublesome to bring around with you. Honestly though, this is the biggest gripe I could come up with (and it took me a couple of minutes to do so too). Highly recommended.
