This is Joe (Qiao), who is a big fan of the Great Wall. I moved to Gubeikou Great Wall after traveling to lots of different types of the Great Wall: 1, Gubeikou Great Wall is the wild wall connected with Jinshanling Great Wall and Simatai Great Wall. 2, Our house is located in the countryside, not in DOWNTOWN Beijing. 3, If you want to experience REAL and WILD Great Wall, Gubeikou is the one what you must do. Situated in Gu Bei Kou, just 50-metres away from the Great Wall, this friendly house features modern architecture, as well as free Wi-Fi and free parking. Featuring stone walls and wooden furnishings, heated rooms come with Great Wall views. There are shared bathroom and heated toilet facilities in the courtyard. There are private rooms with an iPod docking station, electric kettle and en suite bathrooms available. The Great Wall Box House (Beijing) offers outdoor seating in the courtyard, a kitchen and a common dining area. Local Chinese dishes are cooked daily by the property. It is 3 km to Gu Bei Kou Railway Station and 100 km to Beijing International Airport from The Great Wall Box House.

The Great Wall Box House is incredible, hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed at. It does take some effort to get to, make your you start early in the day, but it's well worth the trip. Jim is an excellent host, he was so accomodating, has excellent english and easily

The two nights I spent here were the highlight of my 6 week trip in China. The owner is an extremely nice person. He will make your stay as comfortable as he possibly can. The hotel is located extremely close to the Gubeikou Great Wall. The owner and other guests (who are most

Yesterday the Great Wall Box house cancelled our reservation with no reason or notice. We notice that they immediately rebooked our room so it appears we were pushed out to make room for another booking. We are annoyed and have now rebooked with another homestay close by. Be

How to get there from Beijing airport?
Take the Airport Express to Dongzhimen Bus Station. Go to the large bus terminal and find Bus No.980 Express. It is usually towards the back of the terminal. Take it for an hour and a half, and get off at the last stop in Miyun. From Miyun, you can take bus 25 to Gubeikou which stops outside the hostel. There is generally one bus every hour. Alternatively, take a taxi for 180RMB and get dropped off outside the hostel.
