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!

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...

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...

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...

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,...
