If you see this place, RUN!!
on May 30, 2018
This place is a nightmare for travelers, especially for those visiting Goa. Issues are endless. Here are few of them.
A/C does not work all the time. If the owner finds out that you are using the AC for quite a while, he cuts off the power supply. I wanted to test if this was actually the case. So what I did was I switched off the AC for a while in the morning when it was not too hot outside. There was no problem with the power. However, when I turned it back on, in less than 5 minutes, the power went off. There was an inverter, however I did not pay for the inverter. I paid for an AC room. Next, I left the AC and all the fans on when we went out. When we returned, AC was off. I understand that if the was a power cut, the AC would restart when the power returns. How is that the AC was turned off?
You do not get hot water. though the owner says it is available 24 hours. You get hot water only after noon. Reason is that they have a solar water heating system. Therefore, if you are traveling during monsoon or in the winter, there is no chance of getting hot water.
The worst of them all - the check out time is 10AM. Not sure which hotel/home stay has a check out time of 10AM, especially in Goa. What happens at the end is even worse. The owner's wife arrives at sharp 10AM and she does not leave until you are done packing and left the place. We were not ready at 10AM because we had explicitly told the owner that we cannot leave at 10AM and that we will leave at 11.30AM. Even though we told her that, she let the maid in to clean the place and change the linens. There are 2 double beds joined together in each room and is at the corner. The maid actually climbs on the beds to change the sheets, especially at the ends since it is to the corner. The maid also started throwing our slippers outside. When we told her to put them back in until we leave, the owner said it was her instructions to the maid. She next started screaming at all of us, not even mindful of the fact that there was a 4 year old present there, who, after the incident was startled for a while.
It is a sincere advice to travelers to avoid this place. If someone had told us this, we would have never opted for this place. You would find a review on Google from one "Uday Kerkar". It is the owner himself.

A very good place... rooftop room just like second home... Lovely treatment by the owner, very very affordable for couples and family... 5-6 minutes walking distance from Candolim beach, car arrangements for pick-up and drop and moving around to different places superbly arranged, food arranged, complementary drinking water bottles as required and so on... Most beautiful thing was the cozy rooftop room...
The Most Terrible stay Award goes to Prem Nivas at Goa.......
on Dec 7, 2016
Recently in November 2016, We had booked the room at Prem Nivas as we planned a GOA trip for 5 days, and we experienced the worst stay here, Room was not cleaned at all and even after staying there was no room service available, Soap,Towel the basic things which every hotel provides at a time of check in but we had to ask even for this stuff, we found three to four large size cockroaches at our room, so scary it was. when we need any help No telephone service was available, every time we had to go down for help as the washroom tab was licking, no warm water was available at the time of morning....and we also asked for room cleaning but it was not done till we checked out... owner was only interested for room rent not for giving good service....
We paid half amount in advance but still owner was so annoying us for payments as we will run away without paying,, just imagine how worst stay it was........
AVOID THIS HOTEL- IT HAS ANNOYING OWNER, UNCLEANED ROOMS, WORST FACILITIES.....Not worth wasting money for this Hotel....
I guess the owner should take the reviews seriously and upgrade the facilities, Room service. but i do not think so he is interested in that......

I keep visiting places. I did not see this kind of hotel/ home stay ever during my travel. I can give "The Best Worst Home Stay" award to this. I don't have negative stars here to give.
1. No mineral water supplied
2. Rooms are not that as shown in pictures here
3. Owner is not friendly
4. Too much costly (not worth for the money)
5. No hot water supply in the morning
6. I was told tea n snacks in the package. But, not supplied. Later he said that ""
The most 3rd grade resort in Entire Goa !!

I booked the guest house expecting that I will have not a pleasant but atleast a decent stay since my family wanted to explore the North side of Goa. The guest house is in a small narrow lane with no proper road. When I entered I was shocked to see the room. It was a min hut or you can call it a servant room at the outhouse. The room size is approximately 6 x 10 feet. I have attached the pics. The owner whose name is Uday is an arrogant person. When I expressed my dislike, the owner was so rude that he literally used used the following lines - nikal jao yahan se agar room pasand nahi hai....refund bhi nahi hoga. He forcibly asked me to check-in or leave his premises. Since I was with my family and kids I'd no option but to check-in. I called Goibibo helpdesk who told me that the owner denied to cancel the room booking hence the refund will not be provided. The owner's wife was also behaving in the most possible cheap filthy manner. The room A/c is just for show purpose. It does not cool the room at all. Since it is a guest house - no towels, soaps or water is provided. There were few other guests knocking his door for some help around 10pm but he never opened the door or answered the phone call. If you want to ruin your stay, waste your money, experience worst people like Uday and his wife and screw your mood then this place is for you. If you are sensible enough please stay away from this guest house. All you find over there is single guys with no family around.
