Budapest’s first hostel, the Back Pack Guesthouse, has added two floors to its colourfully painted suburban ‘villa’ in south Buda and been reborn as Shantee House. It's all good and the fun (and sleeping bodies in high season) still spills out into a lovely landscaped garden, with hammocks, a yurt and a gazebo. Two of the five doubles are en suite.
