Shelsta Hotel at Calangute is another of North Goa’s affordable hotels. The rooms are cozy, comfortable and you have the option of AC and non AC rooms. The location is its best advantage as its walking distance from all the major attractions. Owner Ms. Sheila is an ever smiling helpful host

Rooms are basic and will serve the purpose. Hot water was available all day long. No hand-shower or toilet paper in the toilet. Location is convenient. No room service. No restaurant in house but you don't really need one. Bed was clean, and linens were tidy. Overall, a good budget hotel for beach crashers.

It is a simple no frills hotel located close to Baga Beach and other popular landmarks. We arrived there last year during the Diwali jampacked weekend and were glad to get a room for 3 nights. The hotel was all cottage styled with a nice garden and outdoor sitting area. We had hired a bike for all days and there... More

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 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.

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
