So I got told that Monkey Janes had a fantastic rooftop bar and was THE place to party in Yangshuo. However, I was utterly disappointed. The bar did not have a single patron for the 3 nights I stayed there. Granted it was low season, but I would have thought that there would have been something going on. So there...

First time visiting Yangshuo. The hostel is located at the end of West St, which gives you the chance to see the major parts of the city. The staff is very helpful with providing visitors with places to visit. Highly recommend Moon Hill around sunset!

Monkey jane experience was fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good vibes, amazing staff and comfortable prices. The rooftop bar became a routine of the end of every day, which continued into the early hours of the morning. I'm Recommending to everyone

Jan is so nice. The dorms and the rooms are big and clean. The top roof bar is excellent! So much fun! The Staff are great and speak english very well. The beer pong at the top roof bar is a great way to spend the night. We spend 1 week at monkey jane's guesthous and We enjoyed every moment....

It has a pumping atmosphere here and great for our young group of travellers looking for a chilled night out, with some fun games and good people. Although the staff sometimes didn't know the drinks at times, monkey Jane runs a tight ship! Definitely go again!

Great night. Best bar in Yangshuo, complete with Jane et al. Beer pong is great, apart from for Dewhurst, not so much for him. Cheap beers, good service, extremely friendly, great for students, comfortable, great vibes and good music. Recommended.

I don't like the beer. And they don't clean the ice after we use it. The only reason I stayed here is to have a western toilet that won't flush to the left and my religion was very disturbed by the sight of the dogs barking at the cat at night when the posters are yellow and the mountains only...

A time spent at monkeyjane, is not going to be boring or plain, after a chit chat, beers, 1 or 2, one may have drunk more than a few. The pong is flowing, the room is growing, as the carnage insues, the buckets are showing, bia jiu is glowing, the place to be for unreal tunes. Jane herself, queen of...

Jane and her crew are so chilled out and always up for a great time, so there is always a good vibe at the bar. The monkey buckets are lethal!! But nights at MJ's always leave you with stories to tell at the end of your travels, like licking a live snake in a game of Jenga!

Haven't stayed in the hostel but we've been in the Yangshuo area for a month now and every night out starts (and often also ends) at monkey janes bar. It had a great atmosphere, great staff and great people. A bit of a hidden gem and a little hidden away, but definitely worth finding!

Very friendly and in the thick of things, rooms are bright and clean. Free DVD rentals, pool and hammocks on the roof. Party animals swear by this guesthouse.
