The "6-Bed Mixed Dorm" had three sets of bunk beds and used up most of the space in the room. There was a mirror and small night stand by one of the bunk beds and there were small lockers with lock and key for valuables behind the door. The room itself didn't have a lock but the main door to... More

I was bent on staying in Hongdae for this trip and was looking through the many guesthouses that were available in the area. After comparing prices, Grape Garden House (GGH) provided the cheapest twin room (I could find). It is only a short walk from the train station, through the walk you get to walk past many boutiques and cafes... More

I love this location in Hongdae! It's really close to many bars and restaurants in a great location in Seoul. Hip, young area of Seoul that's tons of fun. I highly recommend this guest house for that reason. It was very, very clean and quiet and super easy to get to the subway.

The free breakfast is only at the main house which is not a big deal. The room is decent. It is quite and tucked away so I didn't need... More

I was one of the first guests at Grape Garden House when it started some years ago. I cannot hold my happiness to see how Grape Garden House shows up so easily on google search and has been improving in popularity over the time. It totally deserves the praise. The location is awesome, handy and just perfect and transportation is... More

Great location, right in the university area but away from all the noise. The staff were very friendly. We've stayed in a few different hostels in Seoul, this one is our favourite. We're going back to stay there again next week!

Amazing guest house, has come along ways in just a few years. GGH is a great place to stay, quiet at night, and a friendly staff during the day. Very Clean. Staying at GGH for over a year when i come to Korea, my favorite thing about it, is the staff, the other guests, and the oppurtunites... (the staff) whatever... More

I've generally found the standard if hostels in korea to be quite low compared to other countries I've visited. I've stayed in a number of hostels in the Hongdae area and Grape Garden House is definitely the best. Hongdae is one of my favourite areas in Korea and is great for anyone who loves quirky shops, good food (decent Western... More
