  • This place is amazing. It's about 5 minutes walking from Great Wall hiking trails. I didn't see a single person the two days I was hiking there. The hostel itself is immaculate and has lots of nice touches--free family dinner (lots of options in case you're vegetarian or picky like me), wifi in all the rooms, really nice bathroom, laundry if you need it, plenty of advice on everything and really sweet staff. Highly recommend staying here, the dorm room was a great value.

  • Fantastic time here, you need to book at least 3 nights to be able to do both walks/climbs on the wall. We had 2great days and only saw 2 other people. Hostel was great, really nice staff, comfortable beds and lovely food, best food so far on our trip. Don't be put of by the price, its well worth the extra as your staying right on the wall. We had a pick up from Beijing as there we 3 of us, it was easier that the bus. Would definitely come again, maybe in the Autumn.

  • Great place to see some rustic areas of the Great Wall. A bit of a hike from Beijing but noting an China-traveler cannot cope with. It was wonderful to see the Great Wall in the rural wilderness.

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
