This place is more like a guesthouse/hotel with no breakfast. The rooms are awesome for the price, big bed, spacious and clean, good location in a side street of Chaweng beach road. Penzy and her husband are just amazingly friendly and helpful, giving tips for everything (where to eat, location of everything, full moon party tips and so on), tours with discounts and just sharing nice stories. I found my home in Koh Samui :)
Very nice place to stay. Penzy is an awesome host!
Had a great stay here. Will definitely return at some point in the future.
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
