Absolutely an incredible place to stay. Multiple hikes on The Great Wall are easy to get to on foot. While we are not vegetarians the meals at The Great Wall Box House were our favorites of our 2 week trip. We stayed for three nights which was perfect for our family- two serious days of hiking was just right for our 9 and 11 year old children. Our kids were so proud to have made it to the top of Crouching Tiger! Can not recommend this hostel highly enough.

It is kind of hard to get here and then get back to beijing because the busses don't run very often. You have to know the bus times ahead of time and manage your time very well when coming here or leaving here.

Perfect way to see the Great Wall! We had a great time hiking (even though it rained). Staff was friendly, place was very clean, and well furnished. They do have cats so be prepared if you're allergic, but they aren't in the rooms. Really great place to stay.

We stayed one night at the Great Wall Box Hostel and had an excellent time. The staff was very friendly and answered all the questions we had. The vegetarian dinner they provided was amazing and the rooms were minimal but super clean. As we live in Beijing we will be visiting again when our next family members arrive for a visit.

Fantastic place to stay. My favorite in China. Incredibly delicious food, great self laundry, comfy room (2 pillows each would be better) and location is very special. Small village and miles of original Great Wall to walk on and explore. Highly recommend this place.

The staff are very friendly and speak English rather well, especially Hong and the owner, Joe. They care about their guests and will help however they can. If you wan to see the Wild Great Wall, this is the place to stay. Highly recommended.

What a great little place! We stayed two nights here and it was well worth the 2 1/2 hour bus rides out there. The people spoke English and where very helpful with directions and hiking ideas. The food was great very fresh and not so oily as a lot of the food we have eaten in China. If we make are way back to this area of the world again I would love to stay at the great wall box house. Thanks again for a great time Alaskan travelers.

Would have preferred a twin/double room rather than bunk beds, but the room was fine and we were very happy with our 5 days there. The flowers were fantastic - we wish we had been there in the summer to see the fine plants on the roof gardens! Staff were all lovely - very helpful.
