Monkey Jane's Guesthouse
Ranked #6 of 451 Yangshuo County B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 28, 2010

We stayed in Monkey Jane's for 4 nights and we had such a good time. It is a great place to socialise with fellow travellers every night on the rooftop and Monkey Jane! She is a very sweet lady who helped us with everything and is very generous!
Rooms are comfortable and very good value, a dorm bed is just $3 per night. Great location just off West Street walking distance from all different bars and restaurants. Jane can organise day trips whenever you need including to the mud baths, bike rental, tubing and buses to vietnam. Would definately recommend!

This place is a great deal. Very inexpensive and more importantly Monkey Jane's rooftop bar is the greatest! Every night we were there, it was poker, beer pong, good mix of music, and awesome people! If you know what I'm talking about when I say beer pong, this place is a must (Wednesday's and Saturday's beer pong tournaments).

After we checked out, we left our bags at Monkey Jane's for the day, and they took good care of our stuff for us which was great! Although the sheets were a bit damp in the room because of the humidity the very helpful and outgoing staff, and it's friendly, social, and fun atmosphere more than made up for it. While it's a bit hidden, it's definitely worth finding Monkey Jane's!

I absolutely loved this place!! I felt welcome from the moment I walked through the door of Monkey Jane's. My room was clean, comfy, quiet and great value. The staff were really helpful. Great location, close to bars, restaurants and shops. The rooftop bar has a FUN-tastic atmosphere and is a great place to meet other travelers, the food is delicious, you can get yummy cocktails 2 for 30 RMB (€3) and the view is breathtaking!! Jane is really friendly, up for a laugh and instantly makes you feel at home.

Staying in Monkey Jane's was one of the most memorable parts of my whole trip. If you're looking for a quiet retreat it's probably not the place for you. But if you want to have fun and meet cool people I'd highly recommend it. I can't wait for my next trip, I will definitely be staying there again!

Warning: There is another hostel in the same street pretending to be Monkey Jane's, be sure to book the real Monkey Jane's in advance so you don't end up in the fake one!!

Bar upstairs rages all night until 3am - no sleep. Small room OK, bathroom the smallest I have seen in all my travels with shower over toilet. Grubby & smokey. Moved after 1 night. Lots of other great choices close by.

This is a place where I would go only for the in-house party. In all other respects (including partying in bars) you can find better place nearby. Avoid it at all costs if you can not sleep in constant noise until late night (I mean early morning)
