The best hostel I stayed at in China by far. The proximity to the wall, along with the home cooked meals, friendly advice, and house load of cats made this an experience I will never forget. Would strongly reccomend this hostel despite it's distance from Beijing.

Really great place to stay. Clean rooms with nice bathroom and HOT nice showers. You also can't beat the location. Breakfast and dinner were also really enjoyable and felt very homemade. The only con I would say is that the hosts could have been a bit more helpful in the routes to take. We were not as familiar with The Wall so we were a bit concerned about which path was actually the correct path. All in all, was a really great place to stay and we enjoyed it!

Awesome location - once you manage to find it. Takes about 3-4 hours to reach from Beijing via bus. Once you manage to get there, it's an amazing hostel in an amazing location. It's 3 minutes away from an incredible hike along a remote and original section of the Wall where you can hike for 3 hours and not see anybody else. Also very close to a more touristy and renovated section of the Wall which is well worth seeing as well. The showers/bathroom are AMAZING which is sometimes rare in hostels

Great place! Right on the edge of the rural section of the Great Wall. Property was clean, very friendly and informative staff. Cheap drinks. Well worth the extra effort to get out here, we saw one other tourist on the wall the whole 2 days we were there. Spectacular views. The location is great. Wish we could have stayed longer. Great value for money.

Absolutely amazing place & so close to the wall. Very peaceful and family friendly. Hostel is very modern looking with a staff that go beyond expectations. Spent 3 nights there in order to do 3 hikes & don't regret the decision. You're so close to the wall that you can wake up early and hike 15-20min to the top of the wall over one of its hills and either see the sun rise or the sun set over the village below. The way to the hostel from PEK/Beijing is long, but easy enough to manage solo
