“Great pick for Phi Phi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

So many of the resorts on Phi Phi are tired and run down, if you're on a budget then this is great. It's right in the centre of the town so you're right by all the restaurants and bars and nothing is far away anyway on this small island!

Beaches are amazing! Phi Phi is worth staying on for at least 5 days

I'd read some negative reviews about this hotel but didn't find them to be true, the staff were fine, the room was lovely and really clean, cleaned everyday, and the location was great. Accomodation is more expensive in phi phi so I think this was decent value taking that into account. Would stay

Located in the centre of town, but not noisy at night. If you keep the door/window closed, you hear nearly nothing from the party outside which is going on till 4 am. It’s just a 5 minutes stroll to Tonsai pier or another 5 minutes to Lohdalum Beach. Furthermore I have no reason to complain about the kindness of the staff.
So, if I should complain about something it would be the pool area, which looked not well maintained during our stay AND a free WiFi would be really nice.

This bungalow is definitely a gem for the price we paid. Not expecting much from the price, we were very surprised by the calibre of the room and service!

The rooms were very spacious and very clean. And the pool is definitely a lovely addition.

Location? Can't be anything but brilliant. Phi Phi island is a small island, so the moment you step out of the bungalow, the shops are just around the corner. Everything is in very close proximity.

Phi Phi Island was beautiful and this bungalow just made it a much more pleasant stay.

I realised that having a hotel near to the ferry port in Phi Phi is important bec the only way to arrive Phi Phi is by ferry and then you have to WALK in this scorching heat with your heavy luggages. Luckily I had some help with the large wheelbarrow that they carry luggages for everyone going the same way. JJ residence was good enough to be near the Port. When entering the hotel you have to take you footwear off and leave it outside the hotel entrance in which I don't like.. The room is lovely and have this wooden style interior feature and got everything. Although the shower was weak running water. It is good value and yes I would stay there again. The receptionist are strongly Thai and cannot speak good English and are not that helpful. When I wrote something down for info they don't understand it. No lift and walking barefoot up three floor is not ideal. Swimming pool too cold but lovely looking. Can see the beach but it had alot of tree's in the way
