My mum and I stayed in a double private the first night and then a twin private the second night (we extended our trip by a day and had to move rooms because ours was already booked). Both rooms were lovely and clean, although the laminate flooring of the double room was beginning to fall apart. Great location, helpful staff, lovely common area and backyard. A quiet hostel, perfect for mums.

We stayed in both a private room and a dorm. Private was great! Big, stylish room. Dorm was dark, a bit musty and common bathroom was not that clean. If you're looking for a private room, this hostel is a good option. For dorms there are probably better options out there. Oh, and the cocktails are very cheap! It's unfortunate you can't order them because the staff don't know how to make them..

The staff and owner of this hostel are very nice and helpful. I had a cold when I arrived and they not only helped me to find medicine but also made me ginger tea and soup. Very nice people here. Great location right across the street from old town. Definitely reccomend this place. If youare going to Lijiang next I would also reccomend their shuttle service. I took a train and ended up paying about the same once you factor in all of the transportation.

Just outside the touristy old town, it is only a few minutes walk away to the western entrance of Renmin Road and all the actions. If arriving from Lijiang via express bus which stop on the western highway where local bus no. 4 terminal is only 50m south, then it is a easy 4-stop bus ride (RMB2) to the hostel (Honglongjing stop). A very pleasant stay at Five Elements with an extremely helpful June at the reception!
