A Los Angeles escape room that is all about Los Angeles culture... crime culture. Your group has been invited to a seemingly-normal Koreatown apartment owned by a local entrepreneur to discuss a business opportunity. Shortly after arriving, you discover the apartment belongs to Ray Jones, notorious Los Angeles drug kingpin, and that Ray has a test in store for you: find all the drugs hidden in the space and flush them before the cops arrive or face the consequences.

Very good

IF YOU'RE INTO ESCAPE ROOMS, DO STASH HOUSE. After experiencing Stash House, it immediately flew into my top 3 rooms. I've done 20+ escape rooms, mostly in the Los Angeles area, so I wouldn't call myself an escape room addict, but I'm definitely not inexperienced. The puzzles were quite inventive which makes for exciting discoveries in the room. This is room quite big for even 6 people to explore, which is how big my group was. By LA escape room standards, this is quite big and the room makes very good use of the space by using the puzzles to tie many parts of the room together. I'd recommend 4-5 people for this room. Less than 4 is great if everyone is very experienced in doing escape rooms. GO DO STASH HOUSE!

Favourite LA experience for teenagers
Sep 2019 • Family
Visited as family of 5 with 3 teenagers. They all said Stash House was the best experience of 9 days in LA (yes, we did Universal, Warner Bros, Santa Monica, Venice etc...). The drug gang was an appealing concept for an escape room in LA. Well put together room with various hidden rooms. Nice and simple intro with a quick waiver form then straight into the scenario. The space is big and can take 12 people. As only 5 of us and inexperienced we definitely did not finish. However, we liked that we had the room to ourselves rather than shared with others like so many escape rooms do. Stash House definitely made the kids want to do more escape rooms.

One of the best rooms in LA
Mar 2019
Going through and updating my old reviews as we move them over to our new stack rank website,! Check it out to see how these rooms compare to the other 125+ rooms we've done across the United States. Stash House - 5/5. Stash House has held up surprisingly well over time - despite being an older room with less technology and story moments, the unique puzzles and set full of surprises really make you feel like you're in a stash house. Just a really great game overall, and easily one of the best in LA. (Original Review) I've done over 80 rooms across the bay area, Seattle, New Orleans, and LA at this point. Stash House has been consistently rated as one of the best rooms in LA/in the world, and so we finally made the trek down here to do this and a bunch of other rooms, with this being one of the reasons we came down here, and boy it didn't disappoint. Stash House - 4.5/5 (One of the best escape rooms in the greater area). Stash House is definitely an outlier among the rooms that I give this rating - the other 4.5/5 rooms tend to have amazing sets / custom props that make you feel like you're whisked away from ordinary life into an extravagant new environment, and there's a bunch of automated, movie-quality tech that brings the set to life. Stash House does not have nearly as much of this as the other rooms: you're in some dudes modern apartment, and you're interacting with modern day stuff like a fridge and (though there are definitely parts of the set that you wouldn't find in normal houses). The room is somewhere inbetween gen1 and gen2: there are a fair amount of combination locks / keypads, and some amount of automated sensors. While this would normally be a drawback, Stash House manages to take this more mundane atmosphere, and transform it into an immersive experience through a combination of story, twists, and great puzzle design. In a way, the realism of the set makes the game even more immersive given the subject matter and premise. I currently have Stash House ranked as 7th out of the 80 games I've done, and when 1st-6th are rooms like Cutthroat Cavern, Storykeeper and Lab Rat, 7th is an extremely high rating, and I can definitely recommend Stash House as one of the best escape room experiences you'll have in the United States. The start of the escape room begins even before you enter the room: the entrance to the room is a nondescript black door as the website says, and the neighborhood looks just sketchy enough for it to feel as if this could actually be a legitimate hideout for some shady dealings. The story is... unique to say the least, and there are some fun surprises in the room related to it. The puzzles are on theme and integrate into the story well, though there were a couple of puzzles that felt more random thematically. Certain lore snippets were also sprinkled around the room/puzzle that really made you feel like you are getting a glimpse into the circumstances around Stash House and what's up with Ray. The puzzle design was a big strength of the room as well: there was a large variety of different types that you had to do, and all of them had appropriate amounts of challenge and flowed well into each other. You could tell that they cared about having actual puzzles in the room as opposed to a series of fetch quests that other companies sometimes employ. The hint system was also great: Tommy did a great job at recognizing when we were stuck and nudging us in the right direction. Many hosts will often reveal way too much information and ruin the puzzle, but there was a good balance here of making sure we still got to figure out most of the puzzle. The set itself was massive and probably one of the largest spaces I've seen for an escape room (excluding 13th gate in Louisiana, but nothing really compares to that). The space was well utilized and full with content without feeling cramped, which is a rare thing for most rooms. The website is accurate for player recommendations unlike many other rooms that try to cram you in: 4-6 is a good number for enthusiasts (4 being better), and 6-8 is a good number for beginners. Personal Stats: Escaped in 55 mins with 4 people, getting ~5 or so real hints on parts we got really stuck on.

great fun
Jul 2019
We came here at the recommendation of another escape room owner near USC and just wow. This room had so much going for it, secrets everywhere, enthralling puzzles, great immersion, fun wow moments. I would however recommend a larger group for this as I didn't feel we necessarily had enough players.

An Elite Escape Room
Jan 2019 • Friends
I have played at least 15 escape rooms and they range from excellent to terrible. I heard great things about Stash House, so I went in with very high expectations... and it did not disappoint. This is the best escape room I have played! I don’t want to give away any of the surprises, so I won’t be specific, but it is VERY well designed. Lots of creative clues that are challenging, but solvable. The buildout of the space is great, with several surprise areas to explore once you earn your way to them. You can tell the passion and time that went into designing and building the whole thing. My whole group was very impressed. And they run it the way an escape room should be run. They offer guidance through text messages when you’re missing something, so that you don’t spend way too much time stuck on something you overlooked, making it a much more fun experience. If you are an escape room enthusiast, you really need to check out Stash House. But it is not among the most difficult ones (which are often difficult because of a bad design), so first timers will love this too.

I really enjoyed the plot and puzzles at Stash House. We were looking for an escape room that wasn't scary and was really engaging and we found it. I highly recommend Stash House!

Awesome, Challenging Experience!
Oct 2018 • Friends
I went to this escape room a month ago with a group of friends, all of whom who had done a fair number of escape rooms before - and this one blew away our expectations. First of all, it was longer than most, which is always fun. The puzzles were well-planned, executed, and themed (something that is more rare than you would think). We had a great time, and had the perfect amount of challenge. Definitely check this out; it's in an unassuming part of LA but you're in for a lot of fun once you start.

Must Play L.A. Escape Room
Sep 2018
With over 160 escape rooms under my belt, and over 80 of them being in the L.A. area, I can promise you THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST ESCAPE ROOMS IN L.A.! The uniqueness of the space, puzzle design, and puzzle flow were well worth the price of admission (I’d be willing to pay double, but don’t tell the owners that, haha!) I found out about the Stash House on a popular escape room blog, that listed Stash House as one of the best in the L.A. area, and I can promise you, the blog writer got it right. I would love to gush about all the unique fun experiences you’ll have here, but I can’t give away any secrets, you’ll have to experience them for yourself. The owner/our gamemaster Don was great, you could tell he really put a lot of time and effort into this business and it shows in the game play and experience. I highly recommend this place if you’re in L.A. and you’re looking for something fun to do.

An Incredible Experience
Aug 2018 • Friends
I've never done an escape room before, so I had no idea what to expect going in. I had been invited by some friends to play with them and was curious because I had heard all about them. Based on the website, the company and location seemed like it was a little sketchy, but it turns out that was fully intentional. The experience was unlike anything I've ever done before. I know there's a huge potential for spoilers in trying to review something like this, but I'll try to avoid them. There are surprises at every level of this place, even as soon as you walk in the door. The things you solve are hard but logical and create this really cool sense of being tested by some kind of mastermind villain. Did I mention the twists? It was such a blast. Just like being in a movie. I want to go play more of these!
