Best (and Worst) Coworking Spaces in Zagreb

8 best (and one worst) coworking spaces in Zagreb, Croatia

Ever since it entered the EU, Croatia has become more and more popular with work-and-travel enthusiasts. The capital city, Zagreb, is small compared to other major cities, having just around 1,000,000 citizens with all provinces combined. However, the city packs everything into this small package. With English being taught in school from a young age, and quality of education being on a high level, expats should have no trouble navigating around this city and making new connections. 

If you’re planning on visiting Zagreb soon, we recommend you check out our Where to stay in Zagreb guide. You’ll learn about which areas to stay in and what you can do when you’re not busy coworking.

The new-age digital jobs are moving people out of corporate office buildings and into their personal space. More and more freelancers and remote workers are seen occupying spaces like cafes and libraries. Rental offices aware of this trend decided to adapt to this new demand. They started offering individual spaces, desks, rooms, etc. instead of entire office blocks for rent. Today, coworking spaces can be found in every corner of the world, especially in major cities like Zagreb. Here are our eight favorite (and one not so great) coworking spaces:

  1. HUB385
  2. Impact Hub Zagreb
  3. Regus HOTO
  4. Virtual Office
  5. ZICER
  6. InstantOffice
  7. BIZkoshnica
  8. (AVOID) Travel&Tech Hub
  9. (AVOID) Corner Office

Our favorite coworking space in Zagreb is HUB385

HUB385 is possibly the most well-rounded coworking space in Zagreb. It has a decent amount of desks, private offices, conference rooms, and event spaces to choose from. At its heart, the center is dedicated to learning, innovation, and sharing ideas. It hosts many community events, educational courses, and workshops for different generations and skill levels. 

The interior design is a modern workspace with splashes of color, giving it a more friendly and casual vibe. compared regular corporate offices. There are plenty of packages to choose from, but the space is rather popular, so you should look to reserve in advance. They offer a “Virtual Office” service, with perks such as:

  • A corporate address
  • Reception services
  • Brand recognition by the company
  • Discounts and bonuses to use within their workspace

This is ideal for anyone with a small company looking for a place to call home. The prices are also reasonable compared to similar spaces.

The office spaces are known for their “less is more” approach, with a simple interior that’s kept tidy and clean.

Regus HOTO

Regus is another global chain, with 3000 office spaces for rent worldwide. They have two places in Zagreb. The one we will mention is known as Regus HOTO (name of the business tower) or Regus Savska (name of the street that it’s located in). The space is top-notch, professional-looking and clean. 

The interior is modern and roomy, with big windows allowing lots of natural light inside. The minimal design does not distract, although it may be too bland and corporate-looking for some people. We know young entrepreneurs and freelancers prefer a more casual, laid back office setting. The prices are also a bit high, compared to some other great spaces. Still, it’s worth checking out.

InstantOffice

The InstantOffice coworking space is located on the 5th floor of the gorgeous Zagreb Tower. The space and the offer are modest, but they shouldn’t be underestimated. The interior is elegant, with wood being the primary decoration material. 

Users have access to a great kitchen and lounge area, where they can relax and socialize in between working sessions. They offer individual walk-in and dedicated desks, and daily private offices for rent. 

However, if you’re looking for an office long term, you’ll have to inquire about those. This also goes for conference and event rooms. The company also offers services such as Virtual Office spaces, Cloud servers, landline and fax numbers, etc.

BIZkoshnica

Source: Facebook BIZkoshnica

The clever play on words in the name of this space can be read as “Bees Hive”:

  • BIZ being short for Biznis (Business), and pronounced similar to “Bees”
  • “Kosnica” meaning “Hive” when translated

The idea behind it is sharing space, knowledge, and work between freelancers, startups, entrepreneurs, and other like-minded people. Individuals or small groups will find themselves at home in BIZkoshnica. That being said, the space is limited and functions on a first-come, first-served basis, meaning it can get full. It’s definitely not recommended for larger groups. The interior is nice and colorful, and there is a full kitchen and relax room where you can take a break. The owners do go out of their way to organize social and learning events as well. The drawbacks are a lack of ergonomic furniture and corporate-like working hours.

The coworking space in Zagreb you should avoid is Corner Office

Source: Corner Office Facebook

Corner Office advertises itself as a coworking space. However, it’s really just an apartment with a setup desk and whiteboard. We could see how students working on a group project may find this place useful. It could also be used for a small, private business meeting. However, space is definitely not worth the title coworking. On top of that, we can’t find the prices listed anywhere.
