I absolutely cannot share the view of the previous reviewers. My boyfriend, my sister and I visited Koh Phangan from Samui and only spent one night at Pen's Bungalow. We chose it because it is very nicely located on a clean beach with a friendly bar right next to it. Also, it seemed to be the best value for money... More

If you want to get a sense of what this place is like, I recommend translating the German reviews. Rooms were TINY. Staff didn't bring an extra blanket after separating the bed for me and my friend (double bed made of two small cots). No towels provided. All furniture is old, worn out, and/or moldy (see photos). Room wall kicked... More

So we paid the money And came earlier next day as they told us to do. We came and waited for about 30min (they knew we were here). After 30min we... More

The staff is unfriendly and unhelpful, to the point where I am made to feel like a burden for being here. Not one Smile. The rooms are mediocre and I guess served a very basic purpose (exposed lightbulbs, dingy bathroom and musty). To top... More

Our bungalow was very small and basic. Hard beds, no toiletries (even missing toilet paper) and never cleaned by room service in the three nights spent here. I would not recommend as there are many other options around the beach area. The only redeeming qualities of this hotel would be the food In their restaurant being pretty decent, and the... More

We stayed there for two nights in Nowember (rainy season) and prices were very high as in high season - 800 baht per night. Staff was extremelly unfriendly and unhelpful. Bungalow was old, but the worst for us were mouldy pillows and wilde dogs shitting on the beach. On the other hand its a very quiet and nice place and... More
