Property Information:

Five Elements is a HOT but chilled out boutique hostel minutes from Old Town and THE home for backpackers in Dali! Built in 2011 by a backpacker for backpackers, we offer a stylish and comfortable environment where you will connect with other travelers, locals and the staff that we call family.

TASTY FOOD: Our restaurant serves homemade breakfast and Western food. Join the Five Elements family during our shared meals at lunch and dinner to try local, traditional Chinese food. Our food is MSG-free.

HAVE FUN AND MEET OTHER TRAVELERS: We love to have fun, so hopefully you do too! Events like our X-box and movie nights help you get to know other guests during your stay. We also offer the chance to experience local culture with our Hot Pot Party, Chinese BBQ , homemade dumpling party and a fun day trip to Er Hai Lake to visit villages, taste local food and connect with local people. You can go crazy in the bar or chill out in our garden reading or sharing stories with new friends and old. Our golden retriever, Jinbao will gladly keep you company. Whatever you do, we want you to have FUN!

We care about your experience at Five Elements, so we will do our best to make stay as memorable and comfortable as possible. We want to be your Dali family and support your life on the road. Each of us have our own journey, and while they are different, we share a common desire for adventure. These connections bring us together as travelers, making Five Elements a special place for all of us.

    The food was really good and fresh!!! There are two adorable dogs in this hostel. The location was really good and staff was helpful and friendly. However it was cold in the room (no heating in winter) and the safety boxes in the room were not reliable.
