    Great place! Is a bit hard to reach from Beijing (Be careful with the taxis taking you there as they might try to charge you a bit extra). Other than that the place is great. The rooms and the bathrooms are clean. The staff was very helpful. The place has a great atmosphere the wall is easily reachable by foot. I highly recommend this place. I'll definitely try to go back at some point!

    I really enjoyed my stay at Great Wall Box House. I was only there for two nights and it was the slow season with few people around but I found the escape to be incredibly comfortable and relaxing. The cats are adorable. The food is phenomenal. And the recommend day hike on the wall was one of the coolest things I’ve done in China. Be warned though, the directions to get here are a little tricky. It’s down a long driveway from the road and very hard to see at night.

    I had the most wonderful stay here! Tucked away in a snug location with views of the Great Wall, I couldn’t really ask for much more! Lovely, relaxed atmosphere with nice guests & the sweetest cats who love a cuddle! 6 minute walk to the foot of the wall, so so glad I booked this!

    It was amazing spending a few nights at The Great Wall Box House. The location was very convenient for accessing the Jinshanling, Simatai, and especially the Gubeikou sections of the Great Wall. It had a great vibe and everyone was really friendly and helpful. They also have amazing noodle soup. If you're wanting to spend a few days hiking these different sections of the Great Wall, this is an excellent place to stay. I only wish that I could have stayed an extra day or two.

    Peaceful hostel, very clean and located in a quiet village near the great wall. We were originally in the center of Beijing, this hostel was a welcome break with clean air and open spaces.

    Great place next to the Great wall. Cats are adorable and friendly. Toilets are clean and showers have hot water and shampoo etc. Good common area. We were the only guests and they cooked us breakfast and dinner. Food was delicious and we could choose what time we want it. Very good value for the money. Town is not faraway if you want to buy snacks etc and train station is 4km away.

    Location is perfect to go hiking along some beautiful sections of wall, it is literally 5 mins away. That does mean it is more difficult and expensive to get to - possible with 2 buses early in the day, or a bus and taxi (>3hrs from Central Beijing) - but worth it. The hostel is more like a guesthouse, but service, food (I had vegan options), and facilities were all very good. Lee was friendly and helpful. You should take plenty cash out in Beijing before coming (no card payment or atms near)!

    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Gubeikou. It's a beautiful town and the wall is just phenomenal. I didn't see a soul up there. Be warned if you're a backpacker there is only one bus and taxis will be needed. The next town Samotai is costly as you also have to pay to enter. There isn't much choice for food as you are restricted to the hostel and prices are high compared to the rest of China with a menu that gets repetitive very quickly. No lockers but the hostel is very high quality otherwise.
