Manawa Coworking has two locations in Palermo, one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. Metro line D is close, and there are several bus stops in the neighborhood.
We love that Manawa has lots of natural light, gardens, and fresh air coming into the room. The rooftop is perfect for meetings, although this coworking space is fully equipped with conference rooms and private offices. Nap rooms and showers are available for members, as well as a ping pong table and a spacious outdoor terrace. Manawa also has a recording studio for podcasts and a projector for presentations.
The staff is friendly, coffee and tea are free, and you can bring your pet. This coworking space organizes regular after-work parties with music, beer, and food, as well as workshops and pitching events. Manawa also rents bikes and, as a member of the coworking space, you get 50% off.

Urban Station has four locations in Buenos Aires, the most popular of which is the one in the San Telmo neighborhood.
While Urban Station has an attractive interior design, the chairs are rigid and uncomfortable. Installing a travel stand desk improved the working conditions and we weren’t bothered much by the lack of ergonomic furniture. The room can get loud when crowded and earphones may help a little when that happens. This is a great coworking space for meetings and networking, with an on-site café and outdoor terrace. The first hour is free for new members, so you can get a feel of the space and see if it suits you.
