Really liked staying here, nice location, you can book here for every attraction you want. Free water and a computer if you need one. The hosts are very helpful and English speakers. Good WiFi reception in the dorms, which is always good.

We stayed in a dormitory for three nights, everything was great but the room was not cleaned once, the bathrooms water leaked after a shower and we had to dry the floor. Te staff was nice and they had an amazing view from the rooftop bar. I recommend it but don't expect a clean place. Also it is very well... More

The rooms are okay, and the rooftop bar is just amazing! Monkey Jane is the best host ever, it's super cool, I loved staying here! It's a fantastic place to meet backpackers, I personally meet a lot of other backpacks, and we had a fantastic time there! Total recommendable!

We stumbled across this bar and spent the night playing beer pong and drinking delicious buckets. They have great happy hour specials. Best bar we have visited in China!! And we live in Guilin so we have a few to compare it to ;). Don't miss this place :)

Great hostel, has basic rooms but awesome location. Roof top bar challenges against monkey Jane herself if you dare take on the master. Has free water top up so cannot complain what more can you ask!!!

Anxious about travelling China but this hostel eases in you in perfectly. Friendly staff, great location and even with a rooftop bar upstairs you don't notice it, not where we were anyway! Offer good trip options and double beds in hostel was a hidden bonus!

Monkey jane and staff are very friendly. Bedding is nice and warm. Free shampoo and bath foam - perfect for backpackers. Free water and wifi in the hostel and on the roof top. The roof top is lively with games like beer pong and Jenny :) perfect for pre-drinks before going out or stay there all night in comfy seats... More

I agree with most reviews that the bar is really fun, the location is very convenient and rooftop is great. Nonetheless, I think that some money could be spent into having some of the rooms refurbished. Depending on what building you are put into, you can have a less than average room and be lucky if the shower works.

The Rooftop bar is the place to be in Yangshuo at night. There are plenty of bars and clubs around but for some reason the party ends up being at Monkey Jane's. Good location, rooms were cheap, the staff will set you up with whatever day trips you want to do.
