JJ Residence
Ranked #6 of 65 Ko Phi Phi Don B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 13, 2011

Is this is cheapest spot in Koh Phi Phi, no, but it may be one of the nicest. Situated about two minutes from Loh Dalam Bay and its wonderful beach full of bars, JJ's is probably a little too nice for lazy Koh Phi Phi. Air conditioning works well, the room has a tiny refrigerator with complimentary water and the beds were clean and comfortable. The staff was always friendly and the entire complex was very clean compared to the rest of the island. There is even a TV for those looking to keep up with the rest of the world, but Koh Phi Phi is no place to do that. A small pool is a nice touch too.

Room Tip: Everything is negotiable after the ferry comes

I was from Ao Toh Beach in early morning and was scrambling ard to find good cheap accommodation to sleep. Was damn tired from hiking, swimming and drinking the night before. After checking out a few places, my body finally gave up at JJ Residence. Given a 1200B room which is flashpacker rate. Wanted cheaper but wth i need sleep. The room interior is one of a kind ard here. The room design suits a backpacker just fine. The beds comfy, room clean, hot shower and i just took an hour at the pool before check out just now.

My boyfriend and I had planned to camp in Maya Bay on our first night in Phi Phi, and since rain cancelled our excursion, we had to scramble for a place to sleep. Luckily we found JJ and ended up staying for 3 days, 2 nights.

If you're looking for backpackers prices, you'll think this is too expensive, but for 2000 baht a night, it was a great value for us. Great room, comfortable beds, good closet/counter space. Location is great - close to the main dock, and far enough away from the nightclub areas so you don't hear the beats pounding in your head until 2am every night. Phi Phi village is small enough that you can walk anywhere in 5 minutes anyway.

Grocery store and street vendors are around the corner for food, and there are computers and internet access in the lobby area. Next door to the post office.

There's no separate shower area in the bathroom - it's just one big room, but it's large enough that you can keep your stuff dry near the sink while you shower on the other side of the room. Upon arrival, there was some major air fragrance being pumped into the bathroom that was kind of overwhelming, but just open the window.

We had a room on the bottom floor that had direct access from our patio to the pool, which was a nice pool.

Room Tip: Bottom floor, pool access!
