The hostel is very clean and modern at an excellent part of the wall. Fascinating nature and not many other tourists around. Would recommend this hostel to anyone wanting to experience the great wall off the beaten track! Small village has friendly people and a restaurant that's worth a try for the local experience.

This place is amazing. When you walk into the door, you know everything is worth. This b&b is totally different than the others. The host is well educated. And he keep learning and have curious about many things. We talk a lot about Buddhism and Bonsai. If you are interest in eastern culture, he is the one you wanna talk... More

They were very friendly and helped us get to all the hikes we wanted to. Spent yesterday hiking the Curling Dragon part of the wall - it was... More

We are experienced China travelers which live in Beijing for 4 years.. We spend one night with our friends in the family room (showers out side) We are actually quite spoiled but this cosy B&B is really to recommend. The rooms are cosy and the staff is friendly. The whole location is very peaceful and nice designed. The wild Great... More

We spent 2 nights here in May 2015 and loved it. We stayed in the private double room and yes, although it is a bit pricey, it is very nice and I think an excellent choice especially for a special occasion. The fireplace in the room is a lovely extra touch. It is located in a quite village (although there... More

The Great Wall Box House is in a wonderful position on the outskirts of Gubeikou village with views over the Great Wall. I stayed in a dormitory room with six beds and a shared bathroom a short walk away. The room was warm and the bed very comfortable. The only slight problem with the room was that there is no...

Amazing hosts, heated toilet seats, friendly cats, and amazingly close to The Great Wall. This place is the best and I would absolutely go back in a heartbeat. Monica was incredibly helpful -- she coordinating our transportation, gave us great directions to the trail head, and provided awesome food pre & post-hike. Again -- I would love to go back... More

Stayed 2 nights in November 2014. Arranged Airport transfer through Hotel for 500 RMB. Room very comfortable and clean. All meals provided and were fresh and tasty. Excellent value. Ask for sandwiched to take on full day hikes. Staff can give plenty of great advice about where to go. We dropped off our bags and went up onto the local... More

Visited with two kids, ages 4 and 8. Had been to the area before and knew that we wanted to stay close to the Wall as that was our main purpose for this visit to China, and staying in Beijing and taking day trips would have meant too much time in the car. This place way exceeded our expectations. We... More

This is an absolutely beautiful hostel / hotel. From the moment I arrived, I felt relaxed . It's just the atmosphere at this place. The staff are all very friendly and provide exceptional service. Getting to the hostel is another story. They provide very clear instructions on how to get there. I had no problems following the directions. Note, watch... More
