The hospitality of Penzy is what made our stay even better.


Penzy and her husband we very helpful during our stay. Great place to sleep and plan activities on Koh Samui. Would choose to stay here again.


A great place to stay away from the noise but close enough to walk in order to be part of it. Penzy was very welcoming and helpful (booking tickets, transfers etc.). Highly recommend Penzy's.


Our room was cleaned every day really good but the towels could be replaced more often. The furniture was old and so was the bathroom. It is a tidy cheap place to stay a couple of days but I would'nt recommend a longer vacation cause we didn't enjoy the atmosphere at that place. It is very sterile and cold. It is a 15 minute walk to the public beach entrance if you don't want to cut through the hotel area like the staff tells you to. A bottle of water should be provided each day.


Well, I will start this review saying that you won’t be more welcomed in a hostel than at Penzy’s. Penzy and David by themselves make the staying worth it. Penzy took care of literally everything for me: boats, taxis, bike rent, tours etc. The location is good, a little bit far from the party part of Chaweng beach (15 to 20min walk), but just 2 min walk from the beach if you go across the resorts, which is quite normal. The place is very clean, organized and safe.
