    Beautiful place to meditate for the experienced and the new. The atmosphere is like no other, family run hostel that feels like home, feels like a extended family. Clean and fresh, great size rooms, bathrooms, kitchen and other common areas. Ray and the boys are always there for guidance or any type of help or advice. 10/10 would recommend for anyone looking for change or deeper experience of life!

    My intuitive faculties lead me here, and I am happy I listened. Zen Harmony House was a wonderful experience. Grateful I spent my last months with beautiful beings open to deep chats and quiet nights. The meditation sessions are a must. They are simple, frequent and transformative. Ray, Sean Joseph the guests and pets always welcomed me with open arms and hearts. From my heart to your's. Thank you for the beautiful experience. 💚

    A lovely welcoming family run hostel along with friendly cats and a dog that you're welcome to walk to lovely Rushcutters Bay nearby etc. Ray, Joseph and Sean always happy to assist with anything. Meditation sessions happen multiple times a day if one wishes to join. This adds to the calm, peaceful and pleasant atmosphere. Definitely recommend!

    This is such a beautiful hostel. I have felt relaxed and at home - the staff are so kind and welcoming. For anyone wanting to practice meditation, I highly recommend the sessions - as a beginner, Ray helped me by putting on guided videos. The no alcohol is a refreshing change - I personally drink but it hasn't bothered me one bit - it adds to the peace and serenity. Jessie is the most beautiful little doggo who loves cuddles. Finally, the kombutcha is DELISH. Thank you for having me 🙏☀️🌍

    The meditation rate was cool, but I have no idea how this hostel has such a high rating for cleanliness. The bed was OK, but there was really nowhere in the common areas that I would properly describe as *clean.* This was despite signs everywhere beseeching you to follow various rules lest you be charged some fee or another. Also, your mileage may vary here, but it seemed that most of the guests were long-term residents and not particularly inclined to hang out. The staff were nice, though!

    I don’t like to leave such a negative review when the hosts were really lovely people. They had great energy/very welcoming.i hope they will be able to take this review as constructive criticism. facility itself is extremely small/very unclean/dirty. I didn’t want to cook because it was so dirty. I can see the mold/dirt in almost every corner. carpet had all kinds of stains. Cockroaches roamed, even on my bed. Bed was spring, so not comfortable.i really hope they can give this place a revamp!
