We LOVED Art Harmony! My wife and I (and our four children between the ages of four and ten) stayed here for FIVE nights (Feb 27 to Mar 3 2012) and we loved it. We had our own room which had a private bathroom and shower, microwave and fridge, dining area, masterbed and a loft that easily sleeps four children. The only concern I had with the loft is that if you have a child who rolls around in their sleep, there's no barrier over the steep ladder that leads up to it, so you could have an injury if a child falls. That was just in our room though. We saw some of the newer rooms (they're expanding) and they all had lovely railings on the lofts. The room was very cozy, but perfectly comfy. The communal areas are lovely and welcoming. The shared bathrooms for the non-private hostel rooms are large and clean. Speaking of clean, this was the cleanest hostel we've ever stayed in. The staff were very helpful and friendly (one staff member was slightly brusque, but I chalk that up to language barrier--but most were fairly comfortable with English). We used the communal kitchen for dishes (wash up after yourself, of course). Free wi-fi. It was great! Plus, right in front of the hostel is the 22 tram line which is the main line for getting to most of the major tourist attractions. It was extremely handy. In fact, if only took us one tram stop and two subway stops to get to the main train station for our return voyage. The only warning I would give is for people with bad knees; there is no elevator and it's two or three flights of steps to the reception desk. Also, on Friday night we could hear the loud music from a nearby dance club, but the rest of the week was very peaceful. We would stay here again in a heartbeat--no hesitation whatsoever.
