    This is the best hostel experience I have had so far. The hostel has a very spiritual aesthetic and the atmosphere is friendly and just chill vibes. I had a good time meeting other travellers, having chats and playing card games. It was fun to make dinner in the kitchen while talking to people. Wonderful! The facilities where clean and welcoming and I loved loved loved the back garden and kitchen area. It honestly felt like I was at home.

    Shantee House truly felt like a home. The relaxed atmosphere, comfortable beds, and spotless facility make for a pleasant stay. The kitchen was fully equipped and was a perfect place to cook for yourself. I think this hostel attracts a more mellow crowd, so if you are looking to go wild in Budapest I would suggest booking a party hostel for a night or two, and then mosey-ing on over here. Slept like a baby and met some incredible people. The facilities are beautiful and unique. 10/10

    Short walk from the szent gellert bus station; not downtown but still a nice spot! Two tram stops away from nice food and even cheaper than the city center prices! Very cozy and chill. Sad I only spent one night passing through. Next time I’m in Budapest I’ll be back ;)

    We only stayed here for 1 night, but it was lovely. The facilities were great. Kitchen was big, washrooms were clean and large, the beds were comfortable, and they had a good locker system (bring your own lock). The reason we only stayed here one night was to get closer to the Pest side and the things we wanted to see. Can’t comment on the atmosphere since we only slept here one night, but it was quiet and the people we did talk to in the morning were nice.

    Wonderful hostel situated about a mile and a half from the city center. IMO nice to have the distance and peace from the hustle and bustle of Budapest, but I tend to avoid transit when I travel and a lot of my day was spent walking back and forth. However, the staff are super friendly (most of the tenants are long term staff members) who are eager to help and provide guidance through the city. Great property

    place was great and staff was amazing. we had a lot of fun and enjoyed our stay. unfortunately it was WAY out of the way in terms of the rest of the city. I would definitely recommend for anyone who has transport around the city.

    Good hostel, we stayed in the tent and it was the wrong season to be camping outside. Pretty cold but the tents were pretty cool. Hostels really good but just located outside of town. There’s a train you can catch a few blocks away.

    Great chill atmosphere and a lovely backyard to relax in. Although it was far away from the main parts of town, there is a tram stop less than 5 min walk from, which was very convenient. Probably not a place to go to if you are looking to stay out late/ drink as there were strict rules about noise and being in the backyard after 9 pm. Only complaints are that there is no AC (despite the listing) and if you are placed in the basement, there is no privacy in the bathroom. Overall, was a nice stay
