"A Little paradise for rest, relaxation and fun"

I found the Shantee House to be a extraordinary surprise upon my arrival...and a comfort zone for my mind, body and soul... See more



Welcome to the newly renovated SHANTEE HOUSE, formally the BACKPACK GUESTHOUSE!

After 20 years as the BACKPACK GUESTHOUSE we have made an extraordinary renovation of the entire House for your comfort, pleasure, and tranquility to serve the needs of your MIND, BODY & SOUL.

If you thought the BACKPACK GUESTHOUSE was a great place to hang your hat and rest your weary bones.....get ready now to enjoy fascinating Budapest at the newly designed SHANTEE HOUSE.
Being world traveled backpackers ourselves we created a place that we would also like to stay...... 'comfort and serenity zone' built for everyone's rest and relaxation.
We hope that the new environment friendly SHANTEE HOUSE will blow you away and stimulate all of your five senses allowing you to free your mind to relax in a "STRESS FREE ZONE".

Located in a leafy neighborhood on the Buda side of Budapest we are nestled away from all the noise of the the big city, but close enough to 'quickly' get you back to downtown to sight see or party at the pubs and clubs until the birds are chirping the 'Hungarian Rhapsody in Blue'

Now completed is the Móricz center Hub which is only couple of minutes by tram to easily connect you to the Metro, train station and all parts of Budapest.

Relaxed atmosphere, friendly english speaking informative staff, colorful, themed rooms, cozy spacious environment.....and the welcome is always warm!

Top picks, Budapest 2009
We've always loved this laid-back hostel - Budapest first! - in a colorfully painted suburbain ' villa' in the south Buda and we are happy to see more and more hostels are copying its style. The Back Pack relatively small (50 beds), but the fun spillout into a lovely garden with hammock, a yurt and Thai-style lounging platform. The upbeat attitude of the friendly, much travelled owner seems to permeate the place and the welcome is always warm...


Lets Go Europe 2007.....Thumbs up!
Hostel life doesnt get much better than this laid back place, which has themed dorms, genuinely helpful owner, and a common room with movies, music, cheap bear and free internet. Reception 24 Hr...
