“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

I loved everything about this guesthouse. I was travelling solo and was always made to feel very welcomed. Penzy, David & Anna went out of their way to make sure I had the best stay.
The room was big & super clean. The location is great, a short walk to the beach and shops.
I'll definitely stay here again on my next trip!

Room Tip: If you need wifi, ask for a room on the lower floor

Anna,Dave and Penzy could not have been more helpful and were great for getting discounts on popular day trips!The rooms were pristine and I could not fault the accommodation especially since it was very reasonable.

Penzy and her husband were so friendly and helpful from the moment I walked through the door (really the moment I booked). They helped me book snorkeling and the Full Moon Party transport. They also made sure I was safe as I was doing the FM party on my own. The rooms are clean with tv, good air con and good showers. Very close to the beach and restaurants. Had a lovely stay.

The place is really close to the best beach in Samui. The rooms are clean and of decent size. It is located in the most happening beach and almost everything is at a walking distance. It is a good location to dump your bags and go on exploring the archipelago.
The place is good but the hospitality of Ms Penzy and her husband make it even better. Worth staying at.

By far the best Guesthouse I've ever stayed at. From the moment I checked in I felt I was staying with family. Penzy and Anna Banana are the most genuinly friendly people I have met in Thailand. Rooms are cleaned each day, Coffee & Tea are complimentary in the lobby, DVD & Magazine selection in the lobby. Helpful advice and they can both arrange tours and future travels (Ko Pangan, Diving at Ko Tao, Phuket, Bangkok, etc). A few minutes walk to the beach and a bit longer to the club section.

Room Tip: She only has 8 rooms at Penzy so I think they are pretty much similar.

I've stayed at Penzy's Guesthouse for 5 nights. Our room was very clean and had all we needed, air con, fridge, safe box, TV (and DVD player). The room was also cleaned everyday and we had fresh towels daily. The guesthouse is located 3min walk from the beach and about 20-30mins from the main bars/restaurants. Both Penzy and Anna were very helpful and booked various trips and pick ups for us. I would recommend it to a friend and go back there in the future. If you stay there over the weekend I recommend a street market in Lamai on Sunday night, loads of food stalls and good shopping in general.

Penzy guesthouse is at the same location as sunny guesthouse and is run by the same amazing person penzy.

From the moment you book and receive a welcome email you get a feeling for the place.

The rooms and hostel are really clean and with comfy beds. It's at night time when you can appreciate its good location - close to numerous restaurants and bars but far enough away to get an excellent sleep.

What really makes the place though is penzy and her house keeper ana who will do anything for you. By the end of our stay of 3 days they felt more like friends than the hostel owners. Always there to over advice, have a chat and make you feel at home. The free tea and coffee is also a bonus :-)

We would definitely return to this hostel and in fact we did for another 3 nights after visiting koh Tao.

Thank you for great stay in koh Samui.
