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

I stayed here towards the end of a 3 week holiday in China and it was probably the highlight of the trip. From booking to departure, communication was superb. GWBH provided detailed instructions for how to get to the hotel via self-drive and public transport options. On arrival, we received a warm greeting and a walk-through of the hotel and... More

I traveled alone from Beijing to Gubeikou, which was an adventure and a half. Getting out of the village was easier, as the people who work at the hostel help out a lot with this. When I arrived, I was delighted to see the location of the hostel and was greeted by a very warm woman. The room I stayed... More

My girlfriend and I stayed her for one night during a 2-day hiking trip to the Simatai (sp?) section of the Great Wall. The location is great, and the rooms and common areas are very clean. There is even a nice area outside with lounge chairs. Despite what some prior reviewers said, the dinner they served us was plentiful -... More

My spouse and I spent two nights at the Box House and loved it. We were in the private room which is very nice if a bit pricey but the easy access to two great Wall hikes makes it worth the trip and cost. I highly recommend the Crouching Tiger hike. We met a woman at the guest house and... More

We enjoyed two days in that hostel. Very nice atmosphere and great place, we stayed in the private room, which was beautiful, but really to expensive! It was including veggie food (nice but you shouldn't be too hungry though (small portions only). Also breakfast is nice but not much to eat if you're really hungry bad luck. The wall is... More

Loved the place. Comfortable, super clean, tasteful and very welcoming. The wall at Gubeiko is not renovated, which means that at the moment you can get there wonderful hikes around the wall without hardly meeting any other person. Well, I met just a huge rabbit on my way. Great Wall Box House may seem a bit pricey, if you are... More

Stayed Great Wall Box with friends. Like the peaceful surrounding and fresh air. The hostel is right located in Gubeikou Village which next to Gubeikou Great Wall. Really enjoy the view and peaceful life style there. Will recommend to friends who want to take a break from the busy city life.

My husband and I spent 2 nights in mid June at the deluxe double room. I am so glad we did this! We decided to take the 980 bus to Miyun at Dongzhimen bus station (easy to get to by subway in Beijing). The bus was tight, there’s no special storage for luggage. It’s a regular city bus. I had...
