Really fun rooftop bar which is great for a view during the day or for a good party at night but I would not recommend staying here. The rooms are not great, our water stopped working in the whole building for a couple hours, and staff is not very friendly (except for the bar tender - he is awesome!). Stay at another hostel but definitely come to Monkey Janes at night for beer pong or just to meet cool people!
If your'e wondering why this hostel get such good ratings its probably because you get free stuff from the hostel if you do it. I've stayed at a bunch of different hostel through my backpacking travels and this is by far the worst hostel i've ever stayed at. The staff is unbelievably rude and unhelpful, when we got there they had lost our booking and we had to argue for 30 minutes before we got a room that was worse than we first booked. DONT STAY THERE!!!!!!
Location is very convenient, though the tradeoff is the noise level. We paid for a female 4-person dorm room, but they gave us a mixed dorm room. The room had water damage on the walls, but was otherwise clean. Rooftop bar had an amazing view.
