    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.

    I stayed two nights at the Great Wall Box House. This was the ideal time to spend to support my day-long hike from Gobeiku to Jinshanling. GWBH is a little hard to get to (I took a bus then a taxi) and there are not easily spotted signs from the rode (my driver knew exactly where to take me or I would have had to call the hostel and have someone pick me up). The facility was clean and modern with a great common area. Atmosphere was friendly. I would stay there again.

    Very comfortable beds (a rarity in China) even in the dormitory. Very comfortable seating to relax in after a hard day on the Great Wall, both inside and outside in the sheltered, secure, traditional courtyard. An oasis, only 5 minutes from the Wall. Highly recommended.

    This is by far the nicest hostel ive stayed at in China. Its more like an inn. Massive common room with comfy chairs and a tv. A bit expensive, but worth the price. Its located in a small town only a few minutes walk from the wall, although that portion of the wall is dilapidated. You can take a taxi to parts of restored wall for better photos (few tourists) Only complaint is how much they charge for bottled water. A coke was even cheaper :(

    It’s definitely a good place to stay if you want to experience the unrestored section of Great Wall. The cats here are super adorable, definitely one of the plus point of the hostel. Staffs are friendly, and the in house chef is great. A great place to stay if you want to be away from the hustle bustle city life, as it’s located right at a small and quiet town.

    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.
