Run by the friendly, English-speaking Joe, this wonderful place is housed in a 100-year-old courtyard building that was an abandoned chessboard factory before being lovingly renovated. Rooms surround a long, well-tended garden-courtyard, and are large (the dorm is enormous), bright, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Incredibly, a small, overgrown section of the Great Wall runs along one side of the property.

The shared bathroom is modern (with sit-down toilets), there's a small kitchen-dining area and a number of cats. Joe dishes out reliable hiking advice and offers free mountain-bike hire and tasty vegetarian meals. Get off the bus just before the Gǔběikǒu Tunnel and, instead of walking through the archway, walk along the lane to the south of the village stream. You'll see the Box House sign after about 500m.

Description via Hostelworld

Welcome to the Great Wall Box House, locates at the most traditional but non-touristy Chinese village -- Gubeikou, 120 km to Beijing. It's a 100-year-old Si-He-Yuan house among the mountain, the east-side-wall of the house is a part of the Great Wall. So our house is located in the countryside, not in DOWNTOWN Beijing.
