“Great family home that goes the extra mile for their guests...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

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 the area and how much we should be paying for taxi's etc. I had to receive a very important phone call regarding a job interview during my stay and needed a landline connection at a very awkward hour in the morning. The family were so kind to let me use their phone when I needed help in different country. Highly recommended.

Stayed November 2013, traveled with friends

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.

My friends and i have stayed here for several times different years already.
The rooms are basic but i appreciate it that thet are clean. They have complimentary wifi.
The territory with the garden is nice and the lication is very favorable.
So if u dont search for luxurious resort and just a basic good place for a very reasonable price- it should be your choice.

We, a group of almost 30 stayed here for 4 nights, when we went to Goa to attend the Royal Enfield Rider Mania. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. The place also is so calm and quiet, and well maintained.Beach and a party place is so nearby, making this a fun place too. But unlike the normal hotels, there are no towels, buckets, cloth hangers, or other necessary stuffs in the room. Plus the shelves in my room was kind of damaged and was giving some bad smell, due to its age. It'd be nice if they can take care of this small things, but other than this, the whole experience was so peaceful, that we never felt we are away from our home. Thanks to Julia, for being so co-operative.

We stayed here for two nights in February 2012. We were on a budget vacation and wanted to stay close to the beach. The guest house is a no more than about 5 minutes away from the beach....need to take the steps down the hill...

the rooms were very clean and pretty spacious..the 1st room we got had a problem with the AC....they first tried to fix it...but half an hour later gave up and moved us to a bigger room at the same price..

there are some great restaurants and decent bars within walking distance...

I would definitely stay here again....

My mum is quite fussy about cleanliness and being in India has proven difficult to find a place. This place has everything. Within 5 minutes you are at the beach, in a pub, buying souvenirs. It has everything. There is a nightclub close by and is noisy though all music has to be off by 10pm so great if you have little ones. rooms have hot water and satellite tv. They also offer a washing service at 15rps per item. Would definately recommend

I absolutely love Shalom Guest House, not just for the friendly and comfortable service, but because its such a wonderfully peaceful and traditional nook in an increasingly commercial Goa. On my past two trips to India, this has been my one refuge with comfortable amenities, serene surrounds, well-maintained rooms and the couple who run it are accommodating and helpful. A must for those looking for that bit of the 'real' Goan hospitality and for a quiet break. The beach is not far, there are loads of restaurants along the coastline and its just wonderful!
