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

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
