this hostel is located out side of Dali old town, but just 3 or 5 mins by foot. totaly quiet area. staffs are very friendly and helpful. She bought us the train tickets instead of us, because we couldn't have time to get them. the room I stayed is double room. very nice. big enough. good hostel here!!
Fantastic hostel in a great location. Staff were very friendly and helpful
I loved staying in Five Elements. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. They helped me book bus and train tickets and Emmie even went and picked up my train ticket at the post office. The food was good and there is a good variety of choices on the menu. There are electric blankets on the beds, duvets and blankets as well. I stayed an extra 2 nights in this great place. Thanks guys for a lovely stay in sunny Dali...I would definitely stay here again. :)

It's my second stay here, and this time we stayed for seven nights. Clean, cozy, peaceful, they have everything you need and the staff is friendly and helpful.. Very nice lounge area, too, though I must comment that they could make it so much nicer in the evening by replacing all the awful white light bulbs with warmer, yellow light... Recommended!
The staff was very nice and helpful. But the lobby was very cold, not isolated and not very clean.
Great value and quality service. Location excellent.
Nice hostel, very good wifi. It's a pity that the water needs so long to get warm (5 minutes), quite a waste of water!
I was very happy with my stay. I have been traveling a lot in China, this is one of the best hostels in China.
Great atmosphere and delicious breakfast food, and very helpful, friendly staff! I wish that the rooms had lockers for valuables (I felt a little nervous about my stuff getting stolen or damaged), though the staff was nice enough to keep my electronics at the desk for me. I loved the comfy lounge and the location was wonderful!
Five element is a little bit outside of the city but not so far. We where maybe 3 customers before the national day and it was cool. The main room is well decorat I love the ambiance. Staff is good too. It was clean.
