Very nice hostel. Has the best atmosphere and lots of commom areas, clean, good beds, green lovely garden, good music playing all the time and stylish. When real travelers open a hostel, the difference with the others is like day and night. They know what the travelers need. Just when i was thinking backpacking europe gets boring, shantee house comes to my rescue.

Excellent hostel. A bit out of the way of the centre of Bidapest but well worth it and public transport is very cheap.

The tents aren't as described in the site and can't support rain. The showers are very bad. The hostel is too far from the center. They don't have lockers and there are people sleeping everywhere around the house.

This is possibly the nicest hostel available. The 6 bed room we stayed in was spotless with a large ensuite bathroom with a shower. We never had to wait to use showers either as ladditional male and female toilets available on the same floor. The vibe in his hostel is very relaxing - a lovely place to chat and meet new people. Do not be put off by the location as budapest is well linked with transportation and takes approx 10 mins into centre. Finally the staff were extremely helpful and lovely!

A magical oasis! If you want to stay somewhere close to all the bars and nightlife I recommend staying on the other side of the river.

Great. Best decoration I've seen in a hostel. Quiet. Good atmosphere. Nice staff. Very clean. 20-30 minutes from city center. The garden is a bit bloated with tents/yurts, not much space to chill outside.

A little far from the city and a weird atmosphere, but was ok.

Fantastic hostel. Beautiful facilities, clean and well-decorated, very comfortable place to stay. Very social, but not a party hostel, rather than bros it's full of modern-day hippies. As long as you are ok with conversations about liberal politics, vegetarianism, etc this will be a great time for you, everyone we met was super nice. Location is outside the center but easy to get in on a tram in about 15-20 mins. Good price as well. Would definitely return here!

Shantee House is a gem waiting to be personally discovered by people who have never been to Budapest. I enjoyed every second of it & felt at home from the moment I got there. Never before had I stayed at a hostel with such a communal vibe and openness to discuss intellectually stimulating topics. The garden is blissfully relaxing, the restrooms are kept clean, the kitchen stays packed with food for communal consumption, and best of all the staff is friendly and helpful! Thanks Bori!

Lovely hostel! Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. It was a pity that it was too crowded (tents and people everywhere), so not a lot of space to sit and eat.

It was good, but little pricy and way out of city centre! But you can hire bikes directly from them!

All in all a great hostel, especially for meeting people. The outside area is magnificent. Only problem was location. It was a bit far from everything.

Very chill hostel. Pretty good for meeting people, small common rooms get crammed with people, works but wasn't my fav way to do it. Outside there's a great bed area and hammock setup for everyone. Beds were OK, no AC but my basement room wasn't too bad during the high heat. Would go back if no other great hostels were available in town.
