The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Hongdae
Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s top art school. From its assortment of murals to the occasional amateur street performances, creativity and expression make up the wild and beating heart of vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets drawing consistent crowds. At Hongdae, there’s never a shortage of things to do and see; food and drink options are nearly endless as are shops and noraebang (karaoke) rooms. Hongdae is also one of Seoul’s top party and club scenes catering to a younger demographic; if a packed club isn’t your scene, you'll also find a range of music venues and bars offering live music in all genres. Although Hongdae has lost much of its unique appeal and undergone rapid commercialization in recent years, be sure to explore Hongdae’s edges in areas such as Sangsu-dong and Yeonnam-dong where Hongdae’s fiercely independent streak still runs freely.
How to get there
  • Hongik University • 6 min walk
  • Sangsu • 10 min walk

홍대 룸이스케이프 강추
Aug 2021 • Family
엄청 재밌어요! 엄마랑 했는데 땀이 절로 남.. Best room escape ever! 초짜들에게는 조금 어려웠지만 힌트를 친절하게 주세요. They give you hints in detail, so even if you're beginer you can make it. 진땀흘리면서 겨우 탈출했습니다! 홍대에서 즐길거리 찾는다면 추천해요! English is available.

REC was an awesome time and the arbiet room was difficult barely made it out in time. The room fit 6 people easily and the staff was very friendly. Definitely a great place to check out in hongdae.

As Hongdae is a famous tourist destination in Korea, many foreigners visit it.

Perhaps for this reason, REAL ESCAPE CHALLENGE in Hongdae, which was visited this time, is also available to foreigners in English.

It is also explained in English when the game is played.

​게임난이도는 ... 방린이인 저에겐 약간 난감+어렵🙄

방탈출에 대한 열정을 지펴 준 곳!

직원 분께서도 엄청 친절하신데다가

영등포 방탈출 카페와는 달리 테마룸 안에 모니터가 있어

해당 모니터로 영상을 시청하거나

힌트 요청시 힌트를 받어 신선하더라구용!!!

전체적으로 저희가 선택한 테마 룸은

"몰입"이 확~ 될 수 있는 분위기를 조성해놔서

진짜 재밌게 게임에 임했어용

Good escape room experience. TRY CUPID!
Oct 2020
큐피드 테마가 가장 popular한 것 같아서 체험해봤어요. 남자친구와 재미있게 플레이했습니다. 큐피드 짝수 인원으로 추천합니다! 2명이 제일 재밌을 것 같아요.

Good escape room experience. The staff is nice. They offer 5 types of rooms. Try the Cupid theme.
