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...

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...

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...

Great bar, all the staff are very friendly and best music we've heard in China! Definitely recommend to anyone travelling to Yangshou! Beer pong challenge is good fun with forfeits if you lose but free money and tshirts if you win. Again it is the best bar I went to while travelling in China and would recommend to anyone visiting!

Monkey Jane's is a brilliant bar, Jane is friendly and a lot of fun and her staff are all awesome. The drinks are incredibly priced and the views from the rooftop are the best in town. I can't recommend it enough, everyone should be a regular here

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. After a night on the rooftop taking in the river view while slamming back the brews with Monkey Jane herself (Lonely Planet 2007). ... more   less
