Staff were lovely, helped us with all our queries and arranged our onward ferry for us. Room included air conditioning, a safe, a tv and a mini fridge so was definitely worth our money! Would thoroughly recommend a stay at this guesthouse.
Huge thanks to Penzy and David for their hospitality. I booked Penzy Guesthouse during the Full Moon Party period. Penzy and David were extremely helpful in helping us to book the boat rides to Koh Phangan and giving us tips on what to bring to the party. Security is a main concern for me and I never felt unsafe or felt that my things were at risk of being stolen at Penzy's. The hostel was also very clean and definitely worth the money paid for it.
It was very clean but not at all like the description online. We actually thought that we were in the wrong place! (The photos are also of a different guesthouse) Penzy is sweet but be careful booking transport through her, we almost missed a boat because she didn't tell us the correct time. It's best to use the travel agency down the street for travel. We also almost missed the full moon party because of false information on bus times.

We stayed at Penzy's for 6 nights. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. There was hardly any noise from the street or the other guests. The steps leading up to the rooms are quite steep and narrow. Our room was right by the illuminated sign and only had light curtains which let in a lot of light from the sign at night. It is about a ten minute walk to the beach and you have to go through a dusty building site or sneak through one of the resorts. Bring your own beach towels! No breakfast
Clean, friendly staffs, close to all the happenings and the beach.
Thank you for looking after us Penzy. You are a lovely kind lady :-)

Guesthouse is located just off the main chewang road but slightly outside the busy centre. Around a 15 minute walk to central chewang. Guesthouse is extremely clean and really nice rooms. Have stayed here 3 times in past few years and Penzy is such a good host. Penzy is really helpful with any requests such as trips, laundry, transport etc. Really reccommend this hostel for those that want to be near central chewang but away from any noise. About a 2 minute walk to chewang beach
People are really nice! Penzy helps you with everything. The rooms and beds are perfect.
