thought we would give Monkey Janes a try after reading mixed reviews here and TA. Unfortunately most of negative comments reflected in our experience. Rooms are not clean. Bar area is fun and cheap drinks and current bar staff named Yoyo friendly. However one of the staff in reception communal area is so rude it is actually comical. Asked for help and each time was either ignored or on one occasion shouted at! Too busy playing with her phone or watching tv. Come to party here but do not stay!

It was a nice hostel just a few meters from the touristi center of Yangshuo. The rooms were okay. The nice things were that the hostel organised cheap tours to visit everything which is worth visiting around Yangshuo (because we never know if we can trust trip organisers on the street). Then there was a nice comfortable rooftop bar with a wonderful view on the city surrounded by mountains.
I stayed here twice. Rooms are clean with nice beds. The terrace bar is very nice, with a nice view and atmosphere. Breakfast is definitely not the best, but for me the only real drawbacks are the showers and fact that it's quite noisy.
Party here. Stay in showbiz or somewhere decent
One of my best hostel experiences ever. My girlfriend and I stayed in a dorm for 4 and we only paid about $4.50 Canadian per night. The rooftop bar is fantastic, would attract backpackers from all over Yangshuo come the night time, so always a great party. Great beer-pong table, makes it much easier to meet people. Unfortunately we didn't meet Monkey Jane, but have heard nothing but good things. Booked our sleeper bus to Shenzhen through the front desk and everything worked out well.
One of the best atmospheres - the rooftop bar was a great place to meet some really cool travelers! Good showers and clean hostel. Right in the middle of town...make sure to bike to the mud caves, awesome experience. I would definitely stay here again if I found myself in yangshuo!

Monkey Jane's is not you Four Seasons, but the relaxing atmosphere and location will keep you coming back for more. I enjoyed my stay there and will return to this particular hot spot destination.
Having heard recommendations from friends I decided to book MJ's. Please try and get rid of the ants in the bedroom. Other than that, I had a wicked time. The hostel wasn't very busy at the time I was there but the atmosphere was still good, less partying, more chilling out and drinking games. Met some great people and took advantage of the great location. Thanks Jane!
