Stayed there for a few days with our 5 years old son and we strongly recommend the place. The staff is super helpful and the "boss" can be of great help to organize trekkings, taxis and all sorts of things.
The house is really nice and the garden and restaurant terrace is a peaceful which is a plus in the croudy and dusty Leh Summer.
The food is amazing with all the vegies coming from the garden next to the restaurant.
Don't miss Shanti House if you come to Leh! Prices are very fair.

I stayed here in April 2014 for almost 2 weeks. A very good family run guest everyone was very welcoming and did every thing possible to make my stay a pleasant one. The owner Dorje welcomed me himself at the airport even after my plane was delayed for 2 hours he also arranged my guide and my trip around Ladakh which was a very memorable experience, he'll also arranged a day trip in New Delhi for me and accompanied me on shopping trip in Leh and my last day in New Delhi for shopping eating etc. The guest house was very clean and well kept there was heating and also hot water in the mornings, its pleasantly situated near the Shanti Stupa and a short 10-15 minutes from the main town the views were amazing also especially from the rooftop overall Dorje and his family made my stay in India / Ladakh a very pleasant and memorable one that i will never forget.

Room Tip: Top rooms facing front are the best

We stayed here during our Ladakh trip in 2012. We hadn't made any booking in advance and had to walk a long way after a tiring journey from Jispa to finally find accommodation here. We were travelling all around Ladakh with Leh as our base for the next 10 days. The hosts were very accommodative of this fact and made sure we had enough rooms for all the 6 of us for the scattered stay that we had in Leh. One thing that could improve would be the cleanliness of the place. Hot water was through Solar and we had to be the first ones to have a bath to get hot water.
Decent stay in all. Definitely recommended.

I was in Leh for a week long trip last week and opted Shanti guest house as the place to stay. I loved the place and I can easily recommend it to anybody looking for a good budget option in Leh in a homely environment.

We received a warm welcome in Leh when the owner Dorje himself came to the airport to pick us. The place is somewhere in between a homestay and a guest house. The family which runs the guest house lives on the ground floor and all upper floors are to be occupied by the guests. The owner also helped us in arranging permits for Pangong Tso and Nubra valley. The cook is quite skilled and can make tasty north Indian as well as Tibetian food.

The location is right below Shanti Stoopa and about 10-15 minutes walking distance from the main market in Changspa valley. The area is densely filled by hotels / guest houses.

For the first day we stayed in heated deluxe room, but later we thought of moving to a more budget friendly option. Dorje happily shifted us to the room on the top floor (no heating) which actually provided better views of Leh.

Room Tip: Select rooms on the top floor for some amazing views of the Leh valley (no heating option)
