“Lots of fun wish I was still there!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013

Meant to stay here for 4 days but ended up staying for far too long after discovering JJ's! Best bar on the beach, always a good night and cheap alcohol, free shots often poured out throughout the night, full of like minded backpackers looking to chill out by the beach in the day and make friends and have fun at night. The staff are usually other backpackers and are lots of fun and make friends with everyone, and the Cambodian staff are even better! Friendly, good english and really nice guys. They also put on an impressive nightly fire show on the beach front. The JJ's booze cruises are always a good laugh too, along with the friday night beach parties. It's a small beach bar in Cambodia so don't go expecting world class service as some other reviewers seemed to have, the toilets aren't in great condition but they're pretty much the same as many of the others we experienced in south east asia. If you enjoy fun, you'll have a good time here.

“Utterly useless”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2013

JJs, really the filthiest and worst place in whole of Asia. No people at all, bad service and owners with no manners. Don't go here.

“Have had many fun nights here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2012

Great drinks and music at night, great for backpackers to socialise. You learn so much from people from around the world.

“The only place to party in Sihanoukville!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2012

I was only meant to be staying in Sihanoukville for 2 nights but 2 turned in to 10 when I discovered JJ's. The staff made you feel welcome and were up for partying with everyone, they offered the booze cruise which was so much fun and it was a great way of meeting other travellers. As for people vomiting and taking drugs - I didn't see anything like that, it was just people dancing and playing games and generally having a good time. The prostitutes were sent packing and were generally seen in Dolphin Bar anyway. If you're up for fun then JJ's is definitely worth a visit :-)
