Very nice place to relax, with beautiful spiritual decorations. The hostel is a bit far from the city center, it's more in Kelenföld, so plan your stay wisely. It is not a party hostel (at least not when I stayed in December). My dorm roommate was a very warm and sweet person and it seems like this hostel attracts people like that. Also the staff are lovely. Due to personal circumstances I had to switch from the dorm to a private room, the staff handled this in a kind and efficient way, both rooms are relaxing places to sleep. The hostel has a common room with cushions and cozy corners to sit. I stayed here multiple times and if relaxing, spiritually decorated hostels are your cup of tea, I would recommend this hostel.
Stayed here for a few nights, and met some amazing people, everyone friendly and happy. Such a cool chilled out place. Mixed room was perfect, and I also visited a second time and stayed in private room with double bed was really good. It has nice back garden to chill out, eat food. I really enjoyed my time here. Will defo stop by again in the near future.
My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights in the yurt and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The bathrooms were nice, the kitchen facilities were great and the staff were lovely and helpful. The laundry service was cheap and after a minor mishap with our clothes it was sorted out promptly and efficiently. Even though it’s not very big there are many places to sit and relax and meet new people. We stayed at many other hostels throughout our trip and none of them compared to our all round experience at Shantee house, would definitely stay here again.
I stayed at Shantee House for 3 weeks. I originally booked 2 nights, but ended up extending. This hostel was magic. It's my favourite hostel I've ever stayed in. It has an amazing vibe. The people staying in the hostel were amazing. I am in introvert, and it was super easy to meet people here. We went to the baths, went to chill on the Green Bridge, etc. It's so cosy and homely and always super clean. There are so many cute touches like flowers and interesting things around the place. The owners really care about the upkeep, and this is reflected. We did morning meditations under the Gazebo area. I met so many amazing people here, I will never forget it. It's so peaceful and the garden is beautiful considering it's in a city. The dog is hilarious and took a bath in the little pond outside when I was there. The tram stop is near by, which will take you to the city. FYI use the little red machine to punch a hole in your ticket on the tram if you get the block of 10 or a single ticket. Me and 2 other girls from the hostel had to pay a 60 AUD fine as we didn't realise. Enjoy your stay at Shantee House. Best hostel ever!!!!! <3…
Shantee house was the perfect start to my trip, a relaxing environment, incredibly helpful staff who were available 24/7, a full kitchen with all appliances and utensils provided. It was a great stay and I would definitely come back here next time I’m in Budapest
