So, my sister and I stayed in this hostel on our recent trip to Budapest. I really enjoyed my stay here. It has the most warm and welcoming feel I've had in a hostel. The place was really clean and there is a great kitchen if you want to cook your own food. It's not right in the very centre...

The room was clean and fairly modern. It did get very hot at night but there were fans in the room to help with this! The shower was a little grotty and there was no lock on the door but as far as hostel showers go this was pretty good! The garden complete with pond & hammocks is great if...

So this was my first time travelling and the Shantee House helped me embrace Budapest so much. I came with 2 friends and met with a few new people at the hostel. The staff were so friendly and helpful and showed a lot of care during our stay. Thanks!!!

We stayed here for three nights in the yurt (highly recommend!!!) It was nice and cool in the back area even when it was 95 and sunny. The staff was super friendly, as were all the people staying there. Plenty of nice hangout spots both inside and out. Yeah, the bathrooms and showers are not to the standard of a...

This hotel was one of my favorites in my trip around europe. I heard about it one year ago through a friend on facebook. She posted posted some really nice picture and in that moment I said I need to come here as well! And so I did. The staff are very friendly and they try to speak with you...

I liked the place. My room in the basement was a 3 bed room, and a little damp without a real window to open and get som fresh air. Bathrooms were not world best, no way to regulate water temperature or amount. Very nice kitchen, very good wifi. Friendly place.

The sweetest, coziest and most beautiful hostel I have ever seen. Period. And lovely people. No loud "party&alcohol"-hostel, but a quiet, small, calm and very social hostel. You meet friendly people there. A true Hippie-hostel. :)

I absolutely recommend this hostel for everyone who enjoys relaxed atmosphere, good company and peace. This is really unique and cozy hostel. Beds are good, rooms are variable (bigger and smaller dorms, 2-1 person rooms) and cheap, bathrooms are very clean. There is many comfy places to hang out. All good!
