Budget, fine for the price !

How long do you exactly spend in your room on holidays minus your sleep time?
This place has good locks on the door, AC ( if you want to pay extra ) a good ceiling fan, fridge and tv.
Good location in Small Vagator, near the great Alcove hotel / restaurant which I've previously reviewed.
Maxen have a tiny shop for essentials and they can also exchange money for you. There's a tiny cafe nextdoor which has good internet access.
Most of the tiny bars and hotels will advertise 'free WiFi' NONE of it is ever any good, takes ages to load a simple comment on a social networking site !
Don't expect luxury staying here, it's worth £6 of anyone's money if you only plan on sleeping in your room !
Good for short stay

I visited this place with friends a few months back and found it to be pretty comfortable.
It had good parking space. The staff was friendly. The service was good. A bit far from the beach but doesn't matter if you have your own vehicle. All-in-all enjoyed my stay there and will definitely come back.
Clean - Value For Money

Visited in the second week of November, with college friends. If coming by train Thivim is a station closer to vagator , would need a car to travel till vagator (which you can get outside Thivim stn).
Maxen guest house is very clean and value for money. No food served. it has a general store, wine shop, internet cafe and a travel agency attached to the guest house. You can also get rented Scooters like Activa, Deo ect. at 150 rs per day at the same place. we lived in double bedroom non ac rooms for which we were charged 300 per night. An important landmark near this place is the Vagator Petrol pump, this petrol pump also has an ATM machine.
A charming, great value budget guest house in Little Vagator

We stayed in a nice big double room with a balcony, fridge and bathroom for Rs 400 a night in early Dec 2011. It would've been more but we stayed for two weeks. We had a great view of the nice street corner, with people coming and going, and we could get food brought up from the great little downstairs cafe too.
We moved here after staying at nearby Sunita's guest house (which isn't a bad place at all). They have some rooms above and behind great little Pottala Cafe, which serves great, cheap, Tibetan food and some Thai dishes. Next door is Maxen Travels and internet cafe, which is great if you want to get a Goan sim card or USB modem for your laptop. The family are so helpful - they came and put nails in the wall so we could hang our mosquito net.
A friendly place with a nice atmosphere, and only a very short walk to Ozran beach and Little Vagator beach.
