The guest house completely exceeded every expectation I had. The rooms were clean, the bathrooms amazing (heated toilet seats). Joe was very helpful with planning my hike from Gubeikou to Jingsangling. I had dinner both nights I stayed. It was excellent and everyone eats together, which is a great way to meet the other guests. I highly recommend staying here!

My experience at this hostel was absolutely fantastic! The owner, Joe, is very kind and helpful. He speaks both Chinese and English, and he will help you with every part of your stay - from the trip from Beijing to your hike on the Great Wall! We stayed in the dorm, and the only downside was the lack of outlets... More

We went here with our son, Oscar, who had been twice before. The host was extremely helpful and made us feel at home. He is also very knowledgeable on all aspects of the area. It was a great place to go for hikes along the wall and then to come back in the evening to a wonderful meal, vegetarian and... More

After a week in Beijing, Gubeikou Great Wall is a perfect escape of the congested and bustling air of downtown. This establishment is hidden away inside the Gubeikou Village, beautifully decorated by a Buddhist owner with a great taste of art. Time was easily lost here while I was surrounded by so many cats in this house and beautiful sunset... More

Great location for both adventures and relaxation. The hosts are awesome. The hostel is clean and the food is among the best we had for one month travelling in china, so fresh and healthy!. We hiked the wall from gubeikou close to the hostel, starting with a more original non-touristy part (about 2-3 hours), then after jinshanling it gets more... More

This was a truly amazing little place to stay. The hosts were extremely helpful with information and guidance regarding hikes along The wall. The food, although vegetarian, was very tasty. I would strongly recommend a stay here. This is a unique part of the wall, however it is also worth going to Jinshaling to see a restored section in comparison.

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

We stayed here for 2 nights (would recommend at least 2 as it is a trek to get to). Their directions were easy to follow and we got there without a problem. 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
