J. Guesthouse is a nice place to stay if you are in couple and looking for tranquility. Though, if you are looking for entertainment, it is at 10min ride to the popular bars and clubs. The beach is at walking distance (15min) but believe me, in this heat, you want to have some place closer.

Big rooms, tv with English channels, comfy bed.
At first impression the room looked really nice, once they'd given us the correct room. We had booked a double, but were given a twin (a common mistake in Thailand it would seem).
The room was awful. Our toilet didn't work the whole time we were there, when we told the staff they already knew and still did nothing about it. The shower backed up everytime any water went down the drain, and with no ventilation at all in the bathroom the room got pretty smelly pretty quickly. We had no water one of the days we were there and on the day we were checking out we were awoken by a massive bang, which appeared to knock out all of the electricity. No explanation or apology for this was given.
The staff never seemed to be around. When we arrived we were checked in, we weren't given any information (ie. which way the beach and restaurants were), we weren't even told what time check out was!! It was a nightmare trying to find someone when we had any one of the above mentioned issues!!
Location is OK, however, the road to the beach/restaurants is really busy and has nowhere for pedestrians. It was costing us 100 baht everytime we got a tuktuk, so walking was really the only option - 3 times a day doing this trip was getting a bit pricey. Too dangerous to walk down this road in the dark.
It is also extremely noisy at night. There is live music coming form somewhere every night. You can still hear this in other areas, but nowhere near as bad as it was at J guesthouse!

Trashy, but personnel is nice”
The hotel and the rooms are quite trashy: not very clean, old half-broken beds, no sheets to cover or towels. The personnel is nice and helpful though, but... turns on karaoke all the time REALLY loud, it's like you're sleeping in a karaoke bar.

An ok place for a couple of nights”
Clean, not too far from the beach
It's quite close to Nopparat Thara beach, but to get to Ao Nang you'll need transport, and Ao Nang is definitely more happening than Nopparat Thara. The room was quite big, but old furniture, not so clean bathroom and the staff was never around to ask for anything. Overall, it's an alright place, but wouldn't stay there longer than 2-3 nights.

the A/Croom was good for the price ”
big room, working A/C
the rooms were decent and large with working A/C. there was no restaurants anywhere near which wasnt a problem except when we were looking for a breakfast before taking a bus to khao sok. the staff are non-chalant and seemed like they didnt care that we were there. it was am okay place for 2 nigths stay but i would look elsewhere if i were to return to the area

Very nice Hotel, I even had the Air Con!”
Nice staff, very clean room, fridge, hot water, air condition, cheap
I could only stay 2 days because this guesthouse is so popular, but I enjoyed it and even the lady at the reception helped me find a new room! It is near the calm beach of Ao Nang, but you can walk too the center, where there is more activity in 30 minutes. I love walking so I didn t care. I recommend it to everyone!

Lovely hotel, helpful staff, good value”
short walk from beach, large rooms, friendly staff
j guesthouse staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was large and clean. we were pleased with the quieter location than some of the places in ao nang town. the guesthouse is just a 5-10 minute walk from the beach and the free wifi was great! if ever in krabi again i would definitely stay here again as the price was excellent and the room was surprisingly large and pleasant.

Great value for money”
a spacious room, good wifi in the room, friendly staff
the bad side is the location. the guesthouse is a bit too far from the beach.
