Shantee house was, for me, a rejuvenating sanctuary. I'd been traveling for months staying in hostels, and finally got to catch my breath here. We used the kitchen to cook and bought our food just a few blocks away at the grocery store. The dorm on the top floor room was spacious with plenty of light and windows to get... More

I spent a night there after previously visiting it and (already) falling in love with it. First of all, this house is unlike any other places I've seen. It feels like home from the first minute. Be prepared for a super welcoming colorful embrace, when you enter the door! They've put incredible care and love into every little detail. It's... More

Shantee House is very much billed as a chill-out, hippy kind of an experience. There is incense burning and Bob Marley playing and pictures of the Dalai Lama on the walls. Which is all well and good. There are also a lovely dog and cat hanging about, which help to achieve a nice, relaxing atmosphere I would say that I... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Loved every second of it. Slept soooo goood. :) And although I spent most of the day around the city, coming back to Shantee at the end of the day, definitely brought a feeling of coziness. It is a great place to start the day with a nice cup of coffee on the beautiful terrace,... More

Was only in Budapest for a short stay, but it being the end of my travels I was weary. Being a young American girl carrying a backpack as big as I am with bright blue dreadlocks made me feel like I had to be cautious often, but the minute I walked into Shantee House I felt welcomed and at ease....

It's simply a very good place to stay, even in winter. It's cosy and warm and the many plants pretty much everywhere in the house remind you of summer. We wanted to stay 2 nights and left after 8. Excellent WIFI, quiet at night, welcoming staff. We didn't mind the distance to the center: public transport is cheap and reliable... More

A little bit further from the city center but you can easily get there by public transport from a station that's near by. It's warm, cozy, clean and everyone was very nice.
