Positive Reviews

Good location

The guest house is located in peaceful, green surroundings in the Vagator area, which is generally considered to be a very good area in which to stay in Goa.  Although food and drink is not served in Shalom Guest House, everything required is available in the local area, which is good enough. The Shalom Guest House is convenient for Ozran Beach and the annual Sunburn Music Festival, and is well served by taxis.

Clean rooms

It has been repeatedly mentioned that the rooms here are very clean and well kept. The cleanest rooms in India are here, according to one satisfied guest.

Friendly hosts

The couple who run the guest house have been described as polite and approachable and have been praised for their accommodating and helpful attitude.

Negative Reviews

Noisy at night

Apparently, the noise from the local bars and clubs would ruin a night's sleep, but it appears that many places in Goa face the same problem. One guest recommended a pair of earplugs to ensure sound sleep.


There have been a few complaints from guests regarding being asked to leave before they were ready to do so because a new guest had arrived who would stay in the room for a week. The hosts' answer to that complaint is that the first guest had been deliberately unclear regarding the day of Check-out, whereas the second guest was actually a prior booking. So it appears that it is necessary to be very clear about what day one is leaving at the time of Check-in.

Check before Checking-in

One piece of advice which has come through strongly from previous guests is that it is necessary to check whether the air-conditioner is working or not before checking into an air-conditioned room.
