If you need a no frills type simple place to stay with clean rooms and hot water/AC then this would be a good choice. It's run by a nice lady named Sheila. It's not a hotel where you have a welcome and reception etc. The lady helps you check in with the help of her staff who cleans and takes... More

We took 3 rooms for 4 nights for family and friends. We did not pre-book and took on face value. It was a bad bad bad choice. My friends vacated their rooms just in one night. But I had to stay as no rooms were available in Calangute during the extended weekend. Our experience - To start with - owner's... More

We stayed in for almost one week. We got just one day of room service and it was on request only. The staff is not much co operative. The most of rooms are bit congested. The restaurant was ok. You can find so many other good options as compared to this in the same area.

So I had made a booking through a phone call to stay in this place for 4 nights. A lot of research had gone into this before I zeroed down on this place. My husband left it to me to choose the place to stay, and I wanted to do this task well. The pictures they show of the hotel... More

The property is a great location to begin with. looks also decent from outside. But what was shocking was how dirty the blankets were when we checked in. they were not dusted. the water was not coming in the bathroom. and the coffee we ordered to the room was terrible worse than the hostel coffee i had detested for years....

I stayed in this hotel twice, in December 2012 and March 2014. If you plan on staying near Calangute beach, there could hardly be a better place. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. There's a 24 hours restaurant right in front of the place, so food is never a problem. Quite a few convenience stores are also within... More

This is not an exotic spot firstly. It is a perfect location if you are using the hotel only to sleep and spend most of your time out and about in Goa. The lady is very sweet and no issues regarding the time you enter or leave the room. Clean room and bathroom. Conveniently located at the commercial location at... More

I've stayed in Shelsta twice. Its a really nice hotel with a superb location - very close to the beach, and Titos road. There is a 24 hours bar & restaurant 'Baga Deck' just in front of the hotel, so you'll never have to worry about food and drinks - even at 4:00 am. The owner Ms. Sheila is a... More

Shelsta is one the best options when the agenda is to get soaked on the beach. Neat, clean and very warm. The place is bursting with energy, the staff is very welcoming and the stay is near perfect! The place is beautifully kept, its full bloom garden is the prettiest sight. One can spend all day reading in their garden... More
