Really helpful and friendly staff! (Especially Fen,Jane,Ayi) Great location for walks and visiting West street but the best bar is the roof top bar at monkey janes (cheapest as well) so no need to go anywhere else!! Family dinner is a bonus as well! Highly recommended!!

I didn't stay at Monkey Jane's hostel but went there for drinks as advised by my own hostel down the road, I now wish I'd stayed there instead! Playing beer pong, cheap drinks with free shots and amazing music all help to make monkey janes a place and a night to remember. I'll be coming back for sure and look... More

Traveling every year to China in YangShuo I always stay here. The hotel is simple, but all the key elements are good: it is clean, has soft beds (what is not the Chinese standard) and a very helpful staff. People speak very good English. They can help you with anything you need, from giving advice to organizing things. It is... More

Beer pong, beers, travelers to chat with, and Monkey Jane herself all make this a great place for backpackers and thrifty travelers alike. Great atmosphere to chill out in after a day a biking or rock climbing. Guesthouse staff can help arrange tours, rock climbing, bamboo rafts, and/or scooters.

We had a great time at Monkey Jane's. Although we spent most of our time outside cycling and climbing mountains and not too much time in the hostel, it was clear that the place has and great atmosphere, friendly staff and cheap beer. Perfect!

Theres bottled water and toothbrush/paste in the rooms, a very cute cat, and wifi that works for snapchat! Even though it's slow season with everyone heading back to school, I had a great time. James is awesome and Fen is so chill. She took us up the mountain at 5am to see the sunrise! Beer pong at the bar is... More

The rooftop is a must! 50 kuai and you get unlimited beer, otherwise enjoy the company and the free bbq. Don't get tricked by the lame street and aspect of the place. Go to the last floor. Bar, bbq, table football.

Great atmosphere - has the best and cheapest bar in Yangshuo. Bar staff brilliant and really helpful. If you come here you will end up playing beer pong, and like it. Rooms here are basic, a bit mouldy and dated, but they do the job. They are cleaned daily and my room was of a good size. Also the mattress... More
