Property Description

Welcome to the Great Wall Box House, locates at the most traditional but non-touristy Chinese village -- Gubeikou, 120 km to Beijing. It's a 100-year-old Si-He-Yuan house among the mountain, the east-side-wall of the house is a part of the Great Wall. So our house is located in the countryside, not in DOWNTOWN Beijing.

    Thank you Joe for a very relaxing comfortable stay. Both the nearby wild wall and Jinshanling renovated wall are must sees. Probably the highlight of our stay in China. We highly recommend The Great Wall Box House hostel.

    This place is AMAZING! Seriously, you HAVE ago stay here if you want to explore the Great Wall. My first day I walked along some of the refurbished parts and saw about 10 people the whole day - got incredible photos. The next morning I did a sunrise hike along the original ruins which was an unbelievable experience and so accessible from the hostel. The hostel itself is so clean and the staff are so friendly and knowledgeable! It also has a really chill traveler vibe, great for meeting people!

    Fun common room, shared bathrooms are fine nothing fancy. Jim the owner couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. The location is hidden and difficult to find we called once we got off the public bus for someone to pick us up (offered by hostel on site) they said they were on their way 10 mins later no one, we called again and they asked us to walk. Location to wall is incredible, nothing else is around including food, had to eat at hostel.

    Man, this place lived up to expectations. One of the nicest hostels I have ever stayed at. Location is perfect for exploring the wall, food was on point, and the rooms and common space were just a level above what I am use to seeing.

    Loved the atmosphere and location! A little difficult to find but the host came out to personally guide us when we were lost so it’s not a big deal. Really beautiful and cute place. It’s a five minute walk to an entrance of the Great Wall and located in a small traditional styled river town. There’s a lot of places to sit and relax after a day of hiking. The place was extremely clean and the host very knowledgeable of the area. I would hands down recommend staying here.

    Jim is the priceless asset of this hostel. He made is so easy and comfortable for us to learn about chinese culture. The hostel is very conducive for social interaction with other travellers around the world. The location made our vacation very relax and made us immerse to the real life in the country side of beijing! 😀

    The perfect place when you want to get away from all the crowds for a weekend. Very helpful staff and great hiking opportunities on the unrestored part of the Great Wall.

    a nice and comfortable place close to the best part of the wall. The staff is very kind and helpful. Doesn't look like a place to meet other travelers if you come by youself.

    Not the cheapest hostel but very nice! Owner wasn’t there when I stayed and had left his sister in charge, lovely woman who went out of her way to help, didn’t speak much English but wasn’t a problem at all as we used a translate app or she rang her brother up so he could tell us. Good location if you want to hike on a wild & unkept part of the wall, really good hike. Friendliest cats I’ve ever come across! Clearly very well treated which is always nice to know. Would stay again
