My boyfriend and I had only booked the 1st night for our 4 nights trip in another hotel but they were full so we were recommended by the owner to check JJ Residence. They had one last room which we took as it wasn't too expensive.
The room we had was on the top floor so it doesn't look like the other rooms but it was cheaper and fine for us. Very spacious and clean with a fridge/kettle and a safe.
They cleaned the room everyday and put 2 bottles of water in the fridge.
You can hear a bit the music in the evening but it's the same everywhere on the island and wasn't too bad.
It is close to everything and less than 5 minutes from the beach.
Pool was good and quiet but water slightly too cold.
I would definitely recommend.

My boyfriend and I had a limited time window in which to find a place to stay for the night in Ko Phi Phi, after our day's activities and before the afternoon ferry left. JJ Residence was the third place we tried and the first with a free double room.

Although the woman at reception didn't speak much English she seemed to understand us fine and was quite happy to show us the room. She took us up to the top floor, room 401, and we agreed to take it almost immediately.

The room cost 1,800 baht for a night, which is expensive even in high season, but I am very glad we stayed there and believe it was worth the money (at least in Tonsai Village where accommodation is expensive in general). We eventually extended our stay another couple of nights because we were having such a good time and liked the guesthouse (though sadly I got food poisoning on our last day there!).

I'll note first that although many earlier reviews mention broken or non-existent wifi, these problems seem to have been resolved as of January 2013; we had free wifi and it seemed to work well even on the very top floor.

The room was clean, with a clean double bed, and nice shower/bathroom. There are decent facilities like a TV (though who wants to watch TV on holiday?), a kettle, a small hair dryer, a fridge with bottles of water, and a safe.

We also had air con which worked very well and was quiet. The only real negative was that the bed just had a duvet, no top sheet; it would've been nicer to have the air con on low or off and lie under a sheet, but with the duvet we pretty much had to have air con on overnight.

The pool is small and not very deep but well-maintained, rarely very busy, and great for a quick dip. We were a bit jealous of those with pool access rooms!

Although Ko Phi Phi is very noisy, the guesthouse is set back a little and seems reasonably (though not completely) sheltered from the noise. Both of us were able to get a good night's sleep. If you are a light sleeper though earplugs may be advisable.

The top floor had nice views but the rooms don't have their own balcony as the other floors do, and I think also the ceiling is lower. My boyfriend is 5'10" and it wasn't a problem for him, but if you're very tall you might want a room on another floor.

As we hadn't checked TripAdvisor before we went to Ko Phi Phi and were essentially looking for any place with clean rooms, I think we were very lucky to find JJ Residence! It was a lovely place to spend three nights. Would recommend.

My husband and I stayed at the JJ Residence in July of 2012. The room was very nice with a balcony that you could see a bit of the beach. The wooden walls made the room look lovely. The location was fine, but the island is small and so just about any where is easy to get to. The staff did not speak English and thus communication was difficult. The internet was down our entire stay.

I don’t have much to say about this place. We stayed for two nights whilst travelling around the islands. The room was beautiful, clean and had pool free access from our little patio which was very sweet.

There didn’t appear to be anyone staying in the hotel so noise was at a minimum and even with bustling tonsai just round the corner if you wanted to sleep it was no problem at all. The staff were helpful and no one said anything when we were listening to music on our patio in the evening and we always had the pool to ourselves.

There was little to zero atmosphere in the hotel – however all the action is no more than 5mins walk from the hotel. And I personally think that what you need – a comfy room to nurse a hangover but other than that you want to be out and about soaking up what this gorgeous, wild and hilarious island has to offer.

I’d recommend!! X x

Room Tip: We had one on the ground floor and it was nice to have the pool access.

The rooms are spacious and very well-maintained. There is a nice balcony with each room. The location is just right, because you can get anywhere in 5 minutes, but also enjoy a good night's sleep, in spite of all the partying just a stone's throw away.

Room Tip: Take a room on the 3rd floor for good views.
