The first time I stayed at the Shanti Lodge was December 2004; and ever since we have been visiting Thailand regularly, and stayed at the Shanti Lodge every time we are back in Bangkok. For us, it's really like having a second home in the heart of Thewet. We know the staff, we know the area and we love the... More

Good option for people who want to experience a different side of Bangkok - located off a main road, but in a quiet street. Rooms are all unique, food is great and yoga/tours an option too. Great choice and many repeat visitors.

I stayed here in 2007 and again in late 2014. First off, the location is tough to beat. It is near the craziness of inner Bangkok but it is certainly an Oasis of calm. On my last trip, I spent a total of 6 nights here, on three different visits and when I tired of exploring Bangkok I felt comfortable... More

Shanti is great! I was always so comfortable and taken care of. The food is great and the people are great. I stayed in the dorms and the beds were very hard but I loved it. You are not located in the middle of everything so you are able to meet and interact with Thai people rather then just tourists.

I've been here a couple of times now and I have to say I like it! Staff is extremely nice and friendly, the location is great (close to the river, close to a local market, not far from the royal palace) and even though you are located in busy, loud Bangkok, this is an oasis of tranquility and peace. It... More

I stayed here 4 years ago and then again a few weeks ago. Same 'quirky' in a nice way, inexpensive hideaway. Staff are great. Food and more importantly atmosphere is AMAZING!!!! Great vibe. Kind of place you hear about from a friend of a friend. I hope it is always sold out as long as I can get a room... More

We stayed for a week and was very pleased!! It is placed in north of Bangkok and only a 5-10 minutes drive from Khao San Road. It is on a quiet street which is nice!! Also close to a riverexpress pier. Their fruitshakes are absolutely delicious!!

I have been here several times over the last 6 years and, although the place looks good and affordable this is all I can say about it. The staff are just not interested and this reflects management approach to this business. It has become all too easy for them and are tired of it.

The Shanti Lodge is situated in a quiet street close to all the busy parts of Bangkok. The way it is built is ideal to meet people. The staff is great, the food delicious and there is a market right next door. For me it is a place that i visit again and again whenever im in Bangkok.

First time to Bangkok, reserved online and arrived late from the airport. Staff a little disinterested. A/C not very effective. Small room and small bathroom. Not a very private bathroom as well. Not a terrible experience but I wouldn't stay there again.
