My stay there was very nice. Very kind and helpful staff, and the place is interesting itself, it's not like the other hostels I've been around the globe. It has unique atmosphere. And also, last but not least, it's based in a very quiet area, just 15 min. away from the centre.

I booked last minute for NYE, obviously everything in the city center was booked and more expensive so I was stuck with the cheapest option. However, I am SO thankful I stayed here. Everything happens for a reason! I met the most wonderful people here. The people that stay here are all respectful and the staff is as well. Helpful...

I think that most people would agree that the Shantee House is THE PLACE to stay when in Budapest. It is quite far from the city center, but there are buses that go right into town just a few blocks away. Staff are friendly and helpful. I stayed in the yurt (which I HIGHLY recommend!). The rooms are clean and...

I stayed in the yurt while here which was a great experience for me and my partner and the staff really catered to us making sure we was warm enough. There was a lot of facilities films to watch, book swap, showers and a kitchen. One flaw though is that the staff ( I don't know if lived there or...

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...
