The staff is dishonest. When we arrive the hostel we asked whether there is room available. they said only the twin en suite is available and the price is really high. Because they want to sell the room for a higher price during 10-1 holiday. However when we check the hostelworld, we found that there are still twin room shared bathroom available at the fellow two days. This make us so angry to change another hostel at Lijiang next day which is so much troublesome.
Staff vey ftiendly and helpful but the room was very expensive bearing in mind that breakfast was not included and the toilet leaking. However, we liked the location as it was in a nice and quiet part of the old town away from the crowds but very much with atmosphere. Lots of nice restaurants nearby.

There is only one drawback to this hostel: it's hard to find. On Qiyi (7-1) Street, there comes a point where the street numbers jump. The numbers actually continue down an alley, then come back up the alley and continue. My friend and I passed the alley half a dozen times before we went down it and found the hostel.
Hostel is little bit old, shared bathroom and toilet not so clean and dorms have windows to a noisy street even at nights and early mornings. Private rooms are much better, moreover owner speeks good english and very helpfull. Thank you for sorting out problems with another Lijiang hostel that i booked by hostelworld.
Great location and guesthouse owner was fantastic with her recommendations for sight seeing.
Nice inn. Friendly personal. Well english is spoken there if you'r dealing with the right lady receptionist. Be careful because inn closes its doors at midnight and there is nobody to open you the door if you'r too late. And the walls are thin.
Experienced backpacker over 6 years For the location and price the place is a steal. But beware of the bugs and even though there is a nice deck for the common room the atmosphere isn't much unless you want to relax. The rooms are average but for the price you cant expect too much. The bathrooms are shared and they at least have western toilets and provide toilet paper. However the staff is less than welcoming. Don't expect too much help other than short answers that don't really help much.
I stayed in a single room. The bed was comfy, the wifi worked slowly, and the room was clean. The door, which consists of two swinging doors locked with a padlock, was really difficult to fully close and it made an enormous rumbling and squeaking every time I opened it. The room appeared to have no heating. I can't imagine staying here in the winter. The owner and the French guy speak English very well. Self-service laundry. Couldn't sleep because of live music outside (thin walls).
value for money, wonderful staff. Very happy satisfied customer
Exellent hostel owned by an old couple. Very friendly service. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Hotel is just next to a water canal, which makes the atmosphere very nice. This place is not for party animals who'd like to return their beds very late as the hostel closes it's doors after midnight.
Really great hostel, beautiful location and helpful staff. The only minor negative was the weak shower pressure in the shared bathroom.
Nice, family run guesthouse. I would recommend to stay here but DO NOT book the twin room with shared bathroom which costs 80RMB p/n as you hear everything that goes on in the street, making it impossible to sleep at any time of day. They have similar rooms away from the street for 10RMB more p/n which are much better.
This is a really nice hostel, staff is really helpful. We stayed in a private room for about $30, and it was huge with hot water and a private bathroom. The only thing I would say is that if you hate bugs, this place may not be for you. It's located right on one of the canals in Lijiang. This view is beautiful but there are a lot of insects, mostly small mosquito-looking flying bugs. Not sure if they're mosquitos or not, we never got bit, but you may regret opening your window.

Cute place and a couple of staff were able to speak English to direct us to places. The beds were clean, but the common area wasn't as welll maintained as other places. There was only one shower room for everyone to share upstairs. We stayed in a room with twin beds and the windows were facing an alleyway. The room was a bit noisy throughout day and night.
We enjoyed Enjoy Inn very much. Its location and the spaciousness of our room overlooking the creek was so nice. Our Frenchman who was working there, took very good care of us in serving breakfast and generally helping us with all of our queries. I believe the hostel management has some plans for providing more recreational and resting areas for guests which would be good but as it is now,it has a lovely outlook and location is ideal
Goof place with very helpfull stuff! Free tea, nice music, good view and very quite "magic" street with stream and little bridges. Not far from Old town centre and easy to find - come it to South gate, go 2-3 minute and when you see sign to N1 Lijang School turn right to it. After the stone bridge - turn left and you will see Enjoy inn. Enjoy you time :)
Very good hostel for budget travellers. Just next to Lijiang old town. Many eatery shops nearby. The boss and staff are very nice. My friend has lost his way. Even after mid-night, the boss was so good to use his bike and take the dog out to help finding him. Not crowded and relaxing. Quiet for rooms next to the stream.
A fantastic stay at the Enjoy Inn. The owner Joey was incredibly helpful. She collected it in the town when we couldn't locate the place. She helped organise cheap transport for us and made us feel right at home. We fell in love with the place. The owner's sin took us to a nearby village the next day on a cycling trip. He was a little hero. A great choice in Li Jiang. You won.t regret staying at this homely place.
Friendliest staff I've ever encountered. It almost hurts to write the rest: location is beautiful, right on the edge of a stream, but it's far from the city center and across the street from an elementary school, so the bustle of arriving families can get pretty loud from 7 AM onwards. Walls are also paper-thin; I felt like I was eavesdropping on others' conversations. No hot water in the shared shower. Small place, so no activities and few fellow guests to socialize with.
Nice place next to the river with good single rooms. The owner is fluent in English and knowledgeable about culture and business. A nice place to stay
