We were collected at airport and taken to hostel as requested by email. The hotel is beautiful, so traditionally Chinese which I loved. It was so cold though that I slept in a fleece and the bed was the hardest thing I'd ever slept on which was a real shame since the hotel was so lovely. Location is fab- 10-15...

Hostel itself was really nice. Rooms was really nice and clean, but extremely cold! Grrr. Staff was nice, but didn't speak that much english. But they were really nice and friendly. The Village was really weird, because it felt almoust like a ghost town. There was only empty houses, and it was really, really quiet.

The Great Wall Courtyard calls itself a hostel because there are shared rooms, but it's more like a hotel. The "dorm" which I stayed in had three side by side beds and an en suite bathroom, which came with both hand towels AND bath towels (having stayed in a lot of hostels, this seemed impressive). The rooms are nice and...

I stayed here for one night and it was perfect. The room was clean and the staff was more than helpful. We arrived later in the evening and even though the kitchen was closed they offered to make us a meal. Very helpful on offering a tour to hike the ruins of the Great Wall which I highly suggest doing.

In terms of location and looks, this hostel is first rate, it's also extremely reasonably priced given its proximity to the Great Fake Wall (don't let anyone tell you it's real or old - on the train on the way you can see the 'real' wall, but it's not in a good state!) The lady who dealt with everything we...

Clean, friendly, good food, and good value despite being more expensive because of very touristic Great Wall location. I highly recommend. Only negative was the cold. I had to sleep with clothes on and a toque (I'm bald though). Nobody wastes power that I've seen so far in China. They wear jackets inside.

Nice hostel, very nice and helpfull staff, awesome location, very good food, reasonable price. Totally recommended if you want to go to the great wall, it,s amazing the experience of a night there. A bit difficult to find though, it,s in the old town behind the train station, don't look for it in the main street of Badaling .

This is one fantastic place to stay, 1000 m from the wall and 200 m from the train station building, 50 m from the west end of the station platform. Charming inner living room, great food, great hosts. I stayed there because it was the only place I could reserve online at walking distance from the Badaling Great Wall, and...

The room we stayed in was really comfortable and clean, the staff were so hospitable - they invited us to join their family for a meal - the food was amazing, and the family was so friendly. It's 15 min from the wall - would recommend staying the night if visiting the Badaling section of the wall - we were...

We stayed one night here. The room was great and our hosts were very welcoming - we had a lovely dinner with the family in the evening. All spoke great English, which is a bonus. It's about 15mins away from the Great Wall and about 5mins away from the train station. Really convenient for getting there before the crowds. Definitely...
