    Oshins great atmosphere
    on Apr 25, 2016
    Loved that stay at end of tourist season the stall holders start packing up to head home for Kashmir Nepal Karnataka etc so everything is quiet cheap around them and accommodation was quiet affordable. About 50$ for 1 week. We had room in too and middle floor which was bonus because it seemed we had whole guesthouse to ourselves. Beach about ( minute ride in scooter . A great walk along the beach at night to find the sleeping fishermen ready for early morning fishing start. Shower toilet in every room high ceilings etc. clean beds we supplies our own bedding. It wasn't 5 star fancy hotel it id rather give my money to a local than to a corporation so guest houses are a win win every time especially if they r clean and friendly family atmosphere. My visit was 2004 I see they have painted the outside bright colours. Cute.... More

    Nice people, Cheap, but sub-standard and remote
    on Jan 30, 2015
    I looked up this place on TripAdvisor, seemed super-cheap and turned out to be what I was looking for. No one in Goa would want to spend all day indoors in a hotel, that's exactly why this works. The guy hooked me up to a Bike Rental (who also offered the cheapest ride to the train station), kept my luggage for free (I didn't want to rent the place on a day I was going to spend the night at the casino). Accommodation is okay, and no more than basic amenities. So if you're looking only for a place to sleep, and don't want to spend too much - this is as cheap as it gets. I would still say, don't stay here if you have any plans of travelling up north. But panjim is not too far from around here, and the train station is pretty close as well. So see how this works out for your convenience! It did for me.... More

    A pleasant place to stay quqite basic but good for your pocket but like all budget places in india do not expect too much simple as that. A good time to go is around october/november time if going with a small group it may pay you to book in advance.... More

    Basic but cheap
    on Jan 5, 2014
    What can we say, we booked in April for the December holiday and was told that there is only one room left in the "new building". We needed 4 rooms and opted for one in the new building and 3 in the old building. The new building rooms are bigger with a basic kitchen (fridge and a sink) and Indian style bathroom while the old building rooms only have a room and bathroom. A couple days before our arrival I mailed the manager to confirm our booking only to discover that there are 4 rooms reserved in the old building. Without going into detail, it is safe to say that admin is not a strong point of Ignatio, the manager. Having said that, our rooms were comfortable and clean, with warmish water (you do not need it hotter!). The hotel is 1,5 km (1 mile) from the beach. We hired scooters for 250 Indian rupees per day which allow us some mobility to explore the aria and get to the beach quickly. It s a 10 minute walk if you take the short cut. The hotel is in a very quiet part of Benaulim, almost at the outskirts that add to the tranquil, quiet atmosphere. The rooms get cleaned every week (sweep the floor, clean sheets and towels). Every room also have a small porch. Oshins does not have a restaurant, but there are many local Goan restaurants in Benaulim village, about 500 m from Oshins (we ate at "Hide Out" or "Roof Top" - best food ever!!!!). We will stay there again due to the price and quiet surroundings. Do not expect western standards, it is a place to sleep. The rest of the day you spend on the beach at a beach shack, a restaurant or wandering through the street shopping.... More

    Bed termites weren't advertised, restaurant and wifi were
    on Jan 12, 2013
    The reviews for this place were a little old, but we thought we'd give Oshins a shot. It was a bad call on our behalf. We'd booked a few weeks in advance and had had email contact with the manager - Inacio - up until the day before we arrived. When we got there Inacio didn't seem to know who we were or whether or not we had a booking. He took us up to our room. We had booked a double bed which he had confirmed but were given a room with two single beds. When my girlfriend asked about it, Inacio looked at her and said, "But Miss, there are no double rooms". Advertised on the website and in past reviews it would seem that there was a restaurant at Oshins and that the restaurant had wifi. THERE IS NO RESTAURANT OR WIFI AT THIS GUESTHOUSE ANYMORE! The bathroom was fairly dirty and our beds were the most uncomfortable we came across on a 4 month trip of Asia. The beds sounded like they were going to collapse every time we sat on them, and I wouldn't describe either of us as overweight. They were thin mattresses on a cheap wooden frame, which brings me to the terrible clincher for Oshins Guesthouse. On our second morning I noticed some dust under one of the beds. On closer inspection I realised that termites were eating into the bed frame. I went to tell Inacio whose response was, "Yes, yes. Termites." Apparently no surprise to the management. I stood waiting for him to respond and eventually he broke a silence saying, "I'll get rid of them tomorrow". That's great Inacio, I'll just sleep on the termite infested bed tonight then. Oh, and there's no toilet paper supplied, but there's some at the front desk. You just have to buy it at Inacio's inflated toilet paper rates. Benaulim's great. But don't dampen your experience with a stay at Oshin's Guesthouse.... More
