Penzy's Guesthouse is a great value for the price. It has easy access to the beach and the central area of Chaweng beach. It is super clean with nice comfy rooms and good showers. What really sets Penzy's apart though is Penzy herself. She and her staff are SUPER helpful with booking tours, transport, etc. on and off the island. Penzy went out of her way to help me and my boyfriend book our transport from Koh Samui to Bangkok even communicating with us after we had left Koh Samui for Koh Tao. We had a great stay here and would highly recommend it to other travelers.

My girlfriend and I stayed for a few nights in late July/early August 2013.

To keep it concise - The location was good for accessing much of the island, the price was good for the room and service provided, and all the members of staff were super-helpful throughout our stay. It was everything I could have hoped for and would look to stay there again if I return to the Chaweng area.

I stayed here for 4 nights with friends. It was very good value and the room was very clean. Penzy is incredibly welcoming, she was very helpful when it came to arranging excursions and recommending things for us to do. I fell ill whilst staying there and she got me a cab straight to the hospital and was very kind and caring once I returned. There is free tea and coffee for guests to make themselves as well as a good set of DVDs to watch for free in your room which has a DVD player. This was all very useful whilst I was sick. The location is excellent, less than a 5 min walk to the beach. I would definitely recommend Penzys Guesthouse.

I stayed there for 4 nights last July.
The location is great, close to the beach and in a quiet street, 10-15 minutes walking to
central Chaweng.
The rooms were nice and clean and the staff was absolutely friendly and helpful for everything.
Good value for money, highly recommended.

+Cheap
+Near beach and central area of chaweng.
+ Clean and quiet rooms.
-Bathroom wasn't in the best shape.
-Each room is equipped with tv and dvd player. The quality was however horrid. Don't bother.

stayed here for four days in june with a group of my girls. great location close to the beach, restaurants,bars and a millions massage houses.

first impressions down a little side street a bit dubious but staff were great from the start couldnt have been more helpful or friendly. the rooms were really nice, clean, air con, fridge internet worked really well in both rooms which they put across from each other so we could all be on the same floor - which was a nice touch.
the hotel sells really cheap water, soft drinks, beers etc so although theres no water in the room its only 10 baht!!!

loved the location near the beach, close to plenty of restaurants and even if you wanted to go a little further afield its super cheap in the pick up truck type taxis that are around. loads of really good cheapish massage places around the corner.

overall would cetainly recommend this place if you want to be near the action but get a decent relaxing holiday and sleep.

Room Tip: if you smoke request a balcony room which are near the front otherwise its a lot of walking up and d...

We only booked this guesthouse a few days before as we were travelling through Thailand. It is great value for money and really clean. The rooms were cleaned every day (something you rarely see in asia). The staff were amazing, really helpful with any enquiry we had. It felt more like staying with a family member than in a guesthouse, whenever you left they would ask where you were going and give you tips and the place and tell you to be safe. They genuinely were the nicest people ever. The location is great, right across the road from the beach. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony are better for smokers
