This hostel is amazing. If I could put more than excellent for location I would, The Great Wall is visible from the yard. It is very expensive in comparison to other hostels in China but it offers you a totally unique experience of the Great Wall, over a two day period my friend and I only saw 2 people. It is cheaper than booking a one day trip from Beijing and it is amazing. I plan to return there at some point.


Fantastic place to stay. Great location, very quiet but central, super helpful people. This is the easiest getaway we have ever had in Beijing, and the view from the wall is spectacular (especially when you're the only people on it!) Can't recommend highly enough.

Only stayed here for one night but would have loved to stay longer. The facilities in the superior double bed private room were incredible (toilet!). Met at the gate by lovely owner who helped us plan our afternoon out on the wall (which can be seen from the courtyard). Perfect location if you want to see a section of the wall which is less traveled and unrestored. Delicious home-cooked evening meal included and tasty breakfast too.


For those who like hiking this hostel is awsome. Well located near a ruined part of the great wall leading to Jinshanling. Great ambient with the hostel staff, just awsome. They help so much in everything, really good job.


Wonderful stay, away from the city. Nice view over a wild part of the great wall, with an amazing 3 hours walk on the Great Wall starting from the hostel.
