Property Description

Welcome to the new FIVE ELEMENTS HOSTEL in LEIPZIG, which we are happy to operate since March 2015!

Our fantastic place offers everything you would expect from a Hostel:
A super central location, awesome staff, great rooms, comfortable beds, a place where you can easily meet other travellers.
Our Mission: To bring together the comfort and amenities of a hotel with the typical relaxed and communicative atmosphere of a backpacker hostel.


Whether it’s a tie, a baby-bottle or a backpack you are carrying – we know your needs.

All rooms have private bathrooms: make your choice between private or dorm style accommodation, cook your own noodles in our apartments or try new recipes with your fellow guests in our shared kitchen, it’s up to you!

For a relaxed start to the day, we offer our guests a balanced breakfast buffet, which includes tea and coffee, bread rolls, cereals, yoghurt, juices, eggs, fruit and pastries. Our cozy breakfast lounge also includes a communal area and a well-equipped communal kitchen that guests are welcome to use.

On Wednesday evenings we cook a free hostel dinner for all our guests.

An on-site bar with an outdoor seating area right in the city centre serves beer, wine and soft drinks as well as signature cocktails.

We always keep beds for last minute guests, but: Leipzig has lots of cultural events and trade fairs! Better book in advance to guarantee a bed…

These Five Elements are the ingredients for our hostel:

1. Central location
2. Clean and well-equipped non-smoking rooms
3. 24/7 reception and lounge
4. Current tips and recommendations
5. Friendly staff

Add a hit of style to your travels with a stay at Five Elements Hostel. We’re centrally located in up-and-coming Leipzig, a city that ticks off culture, history and buzzing nightlife. We combine swanky modern interiors with an easy-going vibe. Try a cocktail in our bar, or drink al fresco in our outdoor seating area – some nights we host live-music sessions to get you in the party mood. There’s a bunch of free stuff too to stretch your budget, including city maps and Wi-Fi as well as crêpes on Tuesdays and a hostel dinner every Wednesday – all our treat!


Start the day with coffee in Leipzig Market Square, a 3-minute walk away, then head to the Museum der Bildenden Künste (Museum of Fine Arts), 5 minutes away on foot. Round things off in one of the city’s beer gardens or go dancing at the Distillery nightclub (a 10-minute bus ride away). We’re easy to find – from Leipzig Hauptbahnhof (the main train station) it's a 10-minute walk. If you’re coming in from the airport, get the S-Bahn train to Markt, which is only a 2-minute walk from us.

Rooms and Dorms

Decked out with chic, minimalist interiors, our rooms are very clean and have a bright and spacious atmosphere. We have mixed and female-only dorms, private doubles, triples and quads and even apartments with their own kitchens. All rooms come with an en-suite bathroom, lockers, TVs and air con. Bed linen is free and you can hire towels. Travelling bookworm? All our bunks come with a reading light.

Extras and activities

Start the day with our epic (and cheap) all-you-can-eat breakfast – or we have a communal kitchen if you like to cook for yourself. Like our reception, it's open 24/7 – perfect for midnight snacks. We’ve thought of all the extras to help make your stay easy, with laundry facilities, an elevator and luggage storage. Our lounge has board games, foosball and a pool table.

    Terrific location within the historic centre of Leipzig. Great water pressure in the showers, and a lovely bright communal kitchen.

    I'm not sure if it's just a temporary thing or Five Elements mainly targets families with children, but I wish I had known before- I was expecting a bit more of a usual backpacker/student vibe. Other than that everything was top notch, thanks!

    Extrem gute Lage, gute Ausstattung und unschlagbarer Preis inklusive sehr gutem kostenlosen Frühstück. Einzige Wehrmutstropfen waren leider die etwas wenigen Bewohner, wodurch es schwerer war Leute zu Treffen. Zudem hatte ich einen Langzeitbewohner als Zimmergenosse, welcher Abends sehr angetrunken stunk gemacht hat.

    Very spacious and clean room with toilets inside. Located in the heart of the city so it is extremely convenient. Buffet breakfast is included in the fee; so honestly, this is one hell of a bargain.
