The community of Hongdae is a bustling and entertaining place for locals as well as tourists. With trendy cafés and bars, street performers, and shopping galore, everyone can find something to do. In the western part of the City of Seoul in South Korea, Hongdae has been a popular place for several decades. Whether you want to enjoy the local cuisine, learn about the culture, or shop ‘til you drop, you can do it in Hongdae.
Located in the Mapo District by Hongik University, many of the shops cater to young people where the prices are affordable, and everything is brightly lit and fun all the time. Live music and dancing are the norm in most places, but if you are looking for someplace quiet, try the Gio Cat Café by the University’s main gate or the Meerkat Friends Café on Wausan-ro. There are also several museums nearby.
If you want to enjoy outdoor fun or relaxation, visit one of the several parks in the area. Wau Park on Wausan-ro is a large park with beautiful grassy hills and many trails to enjoy. The flora and fauna are plentiful all year long. Head to Yeun-nam Central Park on Yanghwa-ro to take a walk along the pathways by the fountains or shop at some of the nearby vendors.

Luggage Storage Near Gyeongbokgung Palace
If you have ever wanted to live in a palace, go see Gyeongbokgung Palace on Sajik-ro, just four miles from Hongdae. The palace was first built in 1395, just a few years after the Joseon Dynasty founded by King Taejo. The name means “Palace Greatly Blessed by Heaven.” At one time, the palace had 330 buildings with 3,000 staff members to serve the royal family. However, the palace and buildings around it were destroyed by fire twice afterward and had to be rebuilt. Today, you can take a tour of the remaining 12 buildings and grounds, see the changing of the guards, and explore the gardens. You can even visit the National Folk Museum and National Palace Museum right on the grounds. Do not bring along your luggage, though, or you will be turned away. One of our local Bounce partners will be happy to keep it for you while you visit.
Luggage Storage Near Seoul Grand Park
Seoul Grand Park is a fantastic place to go if you have a whole day to spend. Located on Daegun Won Gwangjang-ro just 10 miles from Hongdae, the huge park has a zoo with almost 3,000 animals, a rose garden, an amusement park, and the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. The zoo has almost 600,000 acres of space, separated into 29 different sections. The botanical gardens have more than 41,000 plants surrounded by lush forests at the base of the Cheonggyesan Mountains. Take a walk through the Healing Place around the border of the park and stop by the Water, Wind, and Sunshine Healing Zone. The museum has three floors of artwork surrounded by a sculpture garden outside. In the middle of it all is a large lake you can stroll around at your leisure. Make sure you get your camera out of your luggage before dropping it off at one of our Bounce locations on your way.
Luggage Storage Near Namsan Mountain Park
For more nature and mountains as well as a tower and cable car rides, head to Namsan Mountain Park on Samil-daero. Yes, you can enjoy the trails as well as the flora and fauna in the park, but you can also do some shopping at the Seoul Tower Plaza. The tower also offers four observation decks where you can get some awesome photos from 500 to 800 feet in the air. Enjoy some local delights at the food court on the plaza or one of the restaurants in the tower. One of the restaurants rotates slowly, so you can get a unique view of the mountains that changes as you eat. The Namsan Cable Car leaves from the tower, taking you on a breathtaking ride from the tower to the mountain and back again. You won’t see the mountains like this anywhere. Leave your bags with one of our Bounce affiliates nearby because you cannot bring them with you.

This was my first time using this service and it worked seamlessly. I had no problems at all dropping my bag off at NYC Racquet Sports and it was just as easy picking it up. This location is a couple blocks from Penn Station, so it was perfect for exploring Manhattan for several hours before catching the train to Newark Airport for a late night flight. Will definitely use this service on future trips!
Really excellent service, right around the corner from A/C/E trains at Penn Station in New York. Popular and busy restaurant, too — but no one kept me waiting to drop off or pick up a bag.
This place is awesome, it’s near Macy’s and other souvenir shops, nearby food outlets too and near the Penn station in New York. This is the best place to leave your luggage for last minute shopping before you head to the airport via Penn station. Plus the Employees are very courteous and kind
