No frills, basic budget hotel with great location and very friendly staff! Staff are accommodating and I over and beyond to help you in any way they can. In our case they rang the hospital to get us an appointment and even organised a taxi there and back for a very reasonable price! Rooms are very clean and the location is perfect :)

This is a budget hotel in a great location with friendly staff who are happy to organise cheap transfers and travel for you.
No frills but great price, had all the basics. Hire a motorbike and ride around town.

We have been travelling in 4 different countries and staying in many hostels, koh samui being our last place to visit because we were flying from there. Our expectations were low but we had a fantastic time- mostly made by feeling so welcome by the staff here. As two teenage girls travelling, at some hostels and hotels we felt a little out of our comfort zone and not able to get genuinely good and useful advice, yet we said we would've happily stayed in samui for longer purely for the fact we felt so comfortable in this hostel- it was like being at home. The staff are happy to help with anything and answer any questions with useful answers. When we left we were waved off by the staff, and received an email the same day from Penzy. The guest house is basic but perfect for travellers who want to explore the island, with many discounts on trips
etc. It was also kept very clean, and in a good location for shopping and the beach. Can highly recommend this guest house- they genuinely care about your stay unlike most places. Thank you Penzy and the team!

Anna and Penzy were such lovely hosts and were happy to help with all of our questions and queries, some of the friendliest people I have met in while in Thailand. Our room was cleaned every day with fresh towels which was a bonus. Room was very well equipped with a/c, a safe, fridge and tv all included and looked exactly like the pictures advertised. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here if you are in Koh Samui.

Visited penzys looking for a room for 2 nights, after asking the gentleman at the front of we could see a room he told us it wasn't worth his time to show us a room. We read on hostelworld the rooms were different than in the ads. He was snobby and then told us it's what all hotels do because they have too many tourists and we would have no luck elsewhere.

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.
