Shalom is set in lovely gardens walking distance from little vagitor. Our room was clean and well kept. The couple who own the place are polite and approachable. There is some noise at night from the bar behind the hotel but it wasn't enough to bother you and I think this is the case anywhere in this part of goa.... More

I stayed here a month back with a friend, where we made reservations for 3 days that ended on a Sunday. Randomly on a Saturday morning the land lady wakes us up (early morning) asks us to leave because she has an opportunity to book another family for the entire weekend...that is getting her more business. I failed to understand... More

We had a wonderful week here in one of the cleanest rooms in India! There was also wifi in room which was a plus. We paid 1500rps/night for an air conditioned room with a fridge and fan. We stayed on the left side. The owners were very nice and helped a lot with random little things. They even cleaned the... More

I've done a lot of backpacking and travel in india and the far east. This place is great. The rooms are clean and are not over priced. The staff is nice and the place is peaceful. It can get noisy if there is a party on the beach but it's like that everywhere in the area. I stayed in a... More

This is a great place if you like trance music. The music starts thumping loudly and ends at 10pm. Not much about this place I liked. There was a fridge but I didn't open it. The air con started acting funny and someone showed up to repair pretty fast. The room was small with a bunch of furniture crammed in.... More

I came to know abt shalom through word of mouth.. that in itself speaks volumes about the place.. located in small vagator. . I must say I was surprised with what I got. During the peak season of Mid December we got to stay at a very affordable rate.. When you enter the place a beautiful lawn welcomes you. .... More

We stayed here for two nights during our tour around Goa. The guesthouse is well placed 5mins from the beach and has lots of restaurants nearby. The rooms are neat and clean and of a good size. The thing that stands out most for me at this guesthouse was how welcoming the family were. They gave us good advice about... More

Clean, neat rooms on offer here, with a lovely Christian couple running the place. This place has been around for over a decade and was usually haunted by Israeli's 10 years ago. Thankfully that has changed and now Shalom offers rooms for about $20 / night and all sorts of travellers can be found here.
