Guest House Goa
Looking for accommodation in Palolem?
The most common thing to do for backpackers when they arrive in Palolem, is to walk along the beach, stop by the huts they're interested in and inspect it.
Should you book Palolem beach huts in advance?
It depends on when you're arriving, and what kind of hut you want. The nicest huts laying right on the beach are the ones that many travelers want. For Christmas and New Year's you should book in advance.
If you're not picky about accommodation, you don't need to book in advance.
The price depends on location, and whether you want hot water/attached bathroom or not.
How are the rooms/huts:
You get what you pay for -- so don't expect any particular room standard when it comes to the cheap huts.
Some huts/rooms are Spartan basic, usually not that clean and have squat toilet.
While other rooms have better standard, like Western toilets and hot water.
The two family houses/guest houses we stayed at didn't have a name, and my intention here is to give you a general impression of how the accommodation is in Palolem.
Power outage occurs frequently in Palolem, so always carry a flashlight and watch your step!
When it gets dark, the chances of stepping into cow poop are big. My friend wasn't so happy when she did this a couple of times. She had to throw away her flip-flops.
