Shantee House

Over the years we have been working with travelers from all around the world and we are very lucky to have met amazing people who are part of our Family by now. We created a peaceful nest in the heart of Budapest for those who are seeking tranquility and open to social interactions at the same time. We opened our doors to dear fellow travellers 22 years ago in 1993 as a Backpacker Guesthouse, at that time we were the only hostel in Budapest. After two decades, in 2013 we made a complete renovation and that was the birth of the new house.

Attila in the early years of his life fell in love with backpacking and followed his dreams to create this beautiful home to share with those who choose to walk on the same path. The design of the house has been inspired from Attila’s travels around the world, especially from Asia. The focus of our team is to provide a cozy and tranquil atmosphere to make you feel at home. Whether you are travelling alone – are young or old, with family or friends, groups or students for long term stay – we are warmly welcoming you to our little paradise in the city. Our spacious and colorful house with lovely zen garden gives a unique and joyful experience.

Thank you Francisca for being a part of our team and the family. We were very satisfied with the help of Francisca, she is a very friendly and wonderful person, precise and skillful with her work and was always approaching tasks with a great manner. We would recommend her to all hosts. Thank you Francisca :)



In this crazy beautiful world, sometimes can be hard to find a place where you can feel at home, but that's how I felt since the first moment I arrived at Shantee House. The place, the people, the energy...everything is special! I worked helping with cleaning, the schedule was flexible and there was always someone to help and give clear instructions. And I most say that Budapest is an amazing exciting city!

Thank you so much Bori and Shantee Family for incredible two months! There is no words that can describe how much I loved it! Already missing you!
