What we say: 3.5 stars

Located near Wat Kaew at the end of a side street off Maharaj, the JP has something of a forgotten feel, but we found it entirely pleasant. The airy first-floor lobby has plenty of tables and raised lounges with traditional Thai pillows, and the receptionist was one of the friendliest we met in Krabi. For the money, the 500 baht air-con rooms offer great value -- they're spacious, very clean and come with TVs, hot water bathrooms, desks and wide windows. Framed photos of local people on the walls are a nice touch. The slightly cheaper air-con rooms are similar but have windows overlooking the hallway so you're better off shelling out the extra 50 baht. Fan rooms are similarly simple and clean, and we met a couple of backpackers staying here who had only good things to say abou the place. JP is located on the other end of the same soi which has a handful of rather seedy, local-style karaoke bars, but they don't effect the guesthouse and you can walk around the other way to avoid passing them completely. Note that rates may jump slightly in peak season.
