Best (and Worst) Coworking Spaces in Ensenada

Two awesome coworking spaces and 7 alternatives in Ensenada, Mexico!

Ensenada, Mexico, is a true hidden gem among travel destinations that many people are still unaware of. Some may know it as the fishing and navy center of Baja California, but this place also has some wild surfing and windsurfing spots! There are also super exciting whale-watching excursions that will make memories that will last you a lifetime! Most notably, this town is a gateway for Baja California’s renowned wine country.

Those who discover this city always enjoy coming back, and many even take up coworking here, too. We loved that idea and decided to explore the options for remote working in Ensenada. 

Ensenada has stable internet connectivity, but for the time being, only two dedicated coworking spaces operate in the area. Fortunately, there are also several appropriate hotels and cafes that are laptop-friendly. We listed them in this article, but let’s start with the coworking hubs:

  1. Hub Center Ensenada
  2. Ensenada Business Center

Hub Center Ensenada is the most popular coworking space in this wine country paradise!

Hub Center Ensenada is one of the most frequented coworking spots in this coastal town. It has everything you may need—hot and dedicated coworking desks, meeting and conference rooms, event rooms, an on-site cafe, a virtual office service, and a lounge room. The Wi-Fi signal is stable, and there is also parking on the premises.

The coworking space was designed to meet various needs, from entrepreneurs needing to solidify their businesses to freelancers looking for a place to promote their work output. 

All of their rooms are equipped with the tech you may need for your business, so all you need to do is take your laptop with you. The lounge room can be used for relaxation but also as an office for life coaches and therapists. The private offices can hold up to eight people, meeting rooms have 12 seats, and the event space can host 50. 

Hub Center Ensenada strives to promote the sharing of ideas and deepen the connections among their members. They organize frequent member events and offer different programs. There is an Incubator program called Startup Baja and the CODEV Hacker/School, where attendees can learn new software skills. They also partnered up with Google for Startups to bring more value to their members.

Ensenada Business Center is located at the heart of the town, in the midst of its business district. Their offices are surrounded by banks, malls, and other companies. 

At the very doorstep, you will be greeted by a bilingual receptionist, which is a rarity and a most welcome benefit in Latin speaking countries. The interior has a modern, attractive design and comfortable, ergonomic furniture. You will have coworking hot desks, meeting rooms, and an executive space at your disposal. Another benefit is the spacious waiting room, where your clients or event attendees can wait comfortably. 

The premises are covered by HD camera security, so you won’t need to worry about keeping an eye on your belongings at all times. The place also organizes different events and courses to promote networking opportunities to their members.

There are more places you can work from in Ensenada! Take a look at their coworking-friendly cafes and hotels!

Although Ensenada has only two dedicated coworking spaces that can offer you all the services you can think of, you can still explore alternative spots to work from. If you don’t want to set up a virtual office and have no need for event and conference rooms, then a solid cafe or a comfy hotel lounge would work equally well for you!

All you need to make sure of is that the place you choose has a decent internet connection and that it is not too loud. And we mustn’t forget that the coffee that is served at the spot has to comply with high-quality standards!

With that said, we have several suggestions for you. Some of the places we feel might be worth considering for remote work in Ensenada are:

  1. Barra D’ Café
  2. Café La Churreria
  3. Café con Leche
  4. Estación 1 Por la Hormiga
  5. Café Arábiga

Barra D’ Café

Source: Yelp

Barra D’ Café is one of the most popular coffee shops in Ensenada. Given that its main business is coffee, tea, and other hot drinks, it is never as crowded as other pubs and cafes can get. So, it can make for a perfectly suitable work spot. What makes things even better is that they have private parking spots and accept credit cards.

They are known for serving freshly roasted coffee—the roaster they use is displayed on site. Not only will you enjoy the most aromatic sips in this place, but you’ll also be surrounded by the mesmerizing scent throughout your stay.

The tables are spacious and can fit all your work gear, and there are also plenty of pillows for added lumbar support. Still, you may need to aim for a spot near a power plug!

Café La Churreria

Café La Churreria is another enchanting coffee shop in Ensenada. Although it does get busier than our previous mention in the afternoons, you shouldn’t get distracted in the mornings here. 

They are known for serving the most various coffee flavors in Ensenada. Some of the most popular are espressos enriched with chocolate, cajeta, strawberry, caramel, or sweetened condensed milk (a big thing in Mexico, apparently!). You can pay with your credit card and order takeout.

The tables are tall and spacious, and the staff is exceptionally hospitable. However, the chairs are wooden and sturdy, so you may not want to stay here until the afternoon anyway.

Café con Leche

Café con Leche is a quaint-looking cafe in Ensenada. It offers delicious coffee but also the softest pastry in town. There are a cozy indoor area and an upstairs terrace reminiscent of a treehouse. The prices are super affordable, as well.

The place has a reputation for being the perfect spot to unwind after a long workday. So that is when you can expect it to be the busiest. Either visit it earlier and enjoy the peace and quiet or join later to mingle with the locals.

Estación 1 Por la Hormiga is a bright, welcoming cafe and bar where you can enjoy great, affordable coffee and delicious, fresh meals. It is clean, comfortable, and the service is flawless.

We loved the tall tables that can be used as standing desks to work from. There is no need to take our travel ones with us in that case. Apart from the indoor area, you can set up shop in the shaded, breezy outdoor patio as well. The tables out there are even more spacious in case you are bringing more stuff with you.

Café Arábiga is another cozy and tranquil coffee shop in Ensenada. The atmosphere there is reported to be so relaxing that you may not want to leave. Fortunately, the coffee is strong and uplifting.

There is an indoor lounge with soft, cushioned chairs and spacious tables. There is also an indoor atrium at the back if you want to take in some fresh air and soak up some sun while you work.

  1. Hotel Cortez

Best (and Worst) Coworking Spaces in Lisbon

The 8 best and worst coworking spaces in Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon has become renowned among business professionals in the last couple of years. Not surprisingly, people from all over the world have taken notice of what this city of pastel architecture and coastal beauty has to offer. 

After a three-year test drive, Web Summit, the largest technology conference in the world, has decided to extend its annual gatherings in Lisbon for another decade. This is expected to attract around 50–80,000 visitors each year and bring revenue of about $3.5 billion to Lisbon in the following years.

Everyone’s eyes are set to Lisbon at the moment. Remote workers and digital nomads are not lagging behind either. As a result, Lisbon has a budding coworking space scene that shows no signs of slowing down.

We have our seven favorite picks, and the least favorite one, too:

  1. Cowork Central
  2. Second Home Lisboa
  3. Outsite Lisbon
  4. Impact Hub
  5. Village Underground
  6. Bworking Spaces
  7. Avila Spaces
  8. Liberdade 229

Cowork Central has the prime coworking spaces in Lisbon!

Source: Cowork Central

Cowork Central has two locations in downtown Lisbon, and we couldn’t single out which one was better. One office is in Príncipe Real and the other in Cais do Sodré

These coworking spaces offer everything you may need for your work—a super-fast internet, a quiet environment, and a central location in the neighborhood of the best food and coffee joints. There are different membership plans designed to meet a variety of needs.

You can hop in unannounced for a couple of hours at a hotdesk, or you can book your own dedicated desk seat. If you have a larger team, you can have private offices and meeting rooms at your disposal. In case you need a space to host an event, this is where you can find one.

The founders of this hub also thought about downtime! There is a table tennis desk that you can use during your break. There is also free beer and on-site showers. In terms of other advantages, the place has bike storage and private lockers. Did we mention that it is also pet-friendly?

Second Home Lisboa is the most sustainable coworking space in Lisbon!

Source: Second Home Lisboa

Second Home could easily be the most charming spot on our list! All it took was one look at it, and we fell instantly in love. The place looks more like a jungle than a coworking space, and we’re obsessed with it!

This coworking space was designed with the intention to mimic nature. It follows the principles of biophilia to promote mental wellbeing and to inspire, relax, and connect its visitors. The biophilic design includes curvy desks, lots of natural light, see-through rooftops, and an abundance of natural plants all over the place! And frankly, it works! You don’t feel like you are in an office at all.

All Second Home offices (London, Lisbon, and Los Angeles) were designed to be sustainable. They never build from scratch but rather reuse old, forgotten buildings. The one in Lisbon dates back to the 19th century.

They also use green tech in all their spaces. The Lisbon office has a roof that opens up automatically every night to let the cool air inside and closes at dawn. Under the floor, there are pipes that transfer cold or hot water, depending on the season, and control the indoor temperature because air conditioning is against the Second Home policy.

Second Home has an on-site cafe with fresh seasonal dishes all year round. The members are also privy to the Wellness Programme, which includes anything from meditation to surfing. This coworking space hosts Weekly Members’ Drinks and other events to build a community for its users.

What we didn’t like about Second Home

Apart from the prices that are slightly above the standard coworking space ones, we didn’t appreciate the lack of ergonomic chairs. It is practically impossible to work long hours from the uncomfortable, albeit gorgeous, chairs in this place.

Another disadvantage is that you cannot just show up here, as you can in other places. There is a security guard here who ensures that only those who have an appointment can enter. There is also a privacy issue here—you have to get outside to make a private phone call to a client and avoid disturbing others.

Outsite is the most convenient place for digital nomads in Lisbon!

Source: Outsite Cowork Cafe, Cais do Sodré

Outsite Lisbon is located in a beautiful townhouse in the heart of the city. The Cais do Sodré area has numerous cafés, bars, and shops, and is a minute away from the Time-Out Market. 

Coliving in this space is exceptionally convenient. The harbor is only five minutes away from the accommodation, and if you are feeling extra adventurous, you can take a 15-minute ferry ride to Costa de Caparica.

There is no reception here, and prior to arrival, you need to get access codes so that you can enter the house and your room. There is a strict policy of no noise after 10 pm, which is laudable because workspaces are literally at every corner here. Every floor has a fully equipped kitchen, a laundry room, ensuite bathrooms, and stable Wi-Fi.

There is a cowork cafe with a street view where you can work or simply enjoy a cup of hot coffee. On the ground floor, there is also an enormous coworking space in the back of the bar with meeting rooms that need to be booked in advance.

Digital nomads are sure to enjoy coliving and coworking in this hub. It is usually packed with people from all walks of life and all corners of the world. There is always someone to chat with and bounce ideas off of.

Village Underground is the quirkiest place to cowork from in Lisbon!

Village Underground is a performance and event venue in downtown Lisbon. It is a world-famous landmark of the Portugal capital. Made of old double-decker buses and shipping containers that have been turned into coworking areas, conference rooms, and recording studios, it certainly stands out from a sea of similar coworking spaces.

This coworking spot attracts artistic and creative individuals and teams. It is also a must-see for digital nomads who come to this city. There are ample opportunities to mingle here, as workshops, exhibitions, and other events are organized regularly.

Bworking Spaces has (almost) everything you could wish for in a coworking spot!

Source: Bworking Spaces Coworking and Offices

Bworking Spaces is a coworking hub that is ideal for startups, freelancers, and digital nomads. It also has a growing clientele of teams and private companies looking for a new place to take their work endeavors.

Among the amenities that this place provides are the app-enabled 24/7 access to all members (apart from the one-off visitors), a phonebox, three meeting rooms, nine private offices, and 65 coworking desks. There is also a lounge and an outdoor terrace for quality downtime with other coworkers. The kitchen is available to all visitors and has free coffee, fruit, and tea.

What is interesting about Bworking spaces is that they offer activities not typically associated with a coworking hub, such as yoga classes, healthy eating workshops, and physiotherapy (provided by their partners Metha Consciousness).

The downside of Bworking Spaces

Although on paper, this coworking spot has everything your heart desires in a rentable office, it doesn’t strike us as a particularly stimulating one. If your motivation is driven by the aesthetics of your surroundings, then this hub will not be up your alley. The service at Bworking may be terrific, but the white backdrop and the monotonous chipboard furniture design can throw off visual personality types.

Liberdade 229 is our least favorite coworking space in Lisbon!

Source: Liberdade 229

Liberdade 229 opened in 2009 and is the first coworking space in Lisbon. It is a place that offers you peace and quiet as it is not overwhelmingly big. Unfortunately, this place may not work for everyone. There are only 34 desks on offer in total in their seven rooms, but there are a private meeting room, a shared kitchen, and a phone booth on the premises.

Liberdade 229 is situated on the second floor of a 19th-century building in the center of the city. Its location makes it equally accessible to locals and foreigners. It is also in the vicinity of the public bus transport stations and both the Yellow and Blue metro lines. If you are a bike enthusiast, there is a bike-sharing stall right at the doorstep.

Liberdade 229 is the coworking space with the longest tradition but the least flexibility. It is open 24 hours for all visitors, which is a unique feature among coworking spaces. However, they do not have hot desk seats on offer, and only allow monthly memberships, which could be ascribed their size and desk space availability. There is also a cap of three people per company. So if you are looking for a more flexible workspace or one that can accommodate a larger team, Liberdade 229 will not be suitable for you.

Best (and Worst) Coworking Spaces in Sao Paulo

Eight best (and one worst) coworking spaces in Sao Paulo

Latin America is always worth a visit. Every single country in this part of the world boasts incredible history, rich culture, and breathtaking art and landscapes.

Brazil, though, takes everything to the next level. The beauty and the atmosphere of the country are undeniably attractive. Sao Paulo, in its different parts, perfectly encapsulates the spirit and the grandeur of the country.

With many distractions in Sao Paulo, it isn’t so easy to stay focused. For digital nomads, this problem is even worse. Their ability to travel and experience other cultures directly depends on their ability to work even when the surroundings are so attractive.

So, how to get any job done in Sao Paulo? Here’s an easy answer—find a functional coworking space to keep you grounded. A productive and motivating environment will help you keep your head in the game, and finish your daily tasks much faster and more efficiently.

There are about 120 coworking spaces in Sao Paulo, though. How do you pick the best one? Don’t worry; we’ve narrowed it down for you. Here are our top picks for a coworking space in Sao Paulo.

oWork is our favorite place to cowork in Sao Paulo

Source: oWork.space

Our favorite coworking space in Sao Paulo is located in Cidade Vargas, close to the zoo and the botanical garden. Sao Paulo Expo is nearby as well, which is convenient when you need to shop.

oWork is a co-living space, as well. The combination of co-living and coworking space is a great way to save time because you don’t have to commute.

If you’re a digital nomad, you know how important it is to have a reliable connection. The glitches in the web coverage affect the focus, cause frustration, and slow down the work. oWork provides excellent Wi-Fi to keep you productive and motivated.

They also provide standing desks, bean bags, and ergonomic chairs. The seating options ensure you’ll be comfortable because wiggling on an uncomfortable chair breaks your concentration and wastes your energy. Standing desks help you keep working even when you can’t bear to sit down for another moment, but you don’t want a break just yet. Bean bags are great if you like working while almost-laying down.

The community in oWork is nothing short of amazing. The people are optimistic, hardworking, and always willing to help. oWork organizes workshops, events, and community lunches and drinks to help the members make friends and help them develop in their field and skills.

There is printing equipment you can use if you need it. If you don’t feel like bringing our laptop with you, you can use one of the available PCs.

There are phone booths and personal lockers you can use. The kitchen is at your disposal if you want to prepare a snack or heat up a meal, but you can also buy snacks onsite.

Coffee is free, but there is an onsite cafe if you crave something more elaborate than a simple cup of coffee. If you can’t start your day properly without an extra-large caramel Mochaccino, you can breathe a sigh of relief because you have everything you need here.

When you need a break, you can chill out in the lounge area, or you can grab another nomad and play ping pong!

It takes all sorts to build a world, and not everybody likes the same things. If oWork doesn’t seem like your cup of tea, don’t despair; there are plenty of other options. Here are seven more coworking spaces in Sao Paulo that we enjoyed.

CoLab

Located in Pinheiros, CoLab is less than 200m from Butanta and Fradique Coutinho subways. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood, in case snack food and plain coffee don’t work for you.

The atmosphere is conducive to work, and the crowd is helpful and optimistic. There is excellent Wi-Fi, which can help you get some work done efficiently, and CoLab provides ergonomic chairs and standing desks, so there are options for those who don’t enjoy sitting down too much. You can use the printing equipment.

There is a pretty outdoor terrace where you can go to chill out, and coffee is free. The space is wheelchair accessible, which is great.

Blocktime is one block away from the Sumare subway station, in Pinheiros. They provide excellent internet connection and ergonomic chairs, which makes working there stress-free and comfortable. There are no standing desks, though, so you might want to take a few short breaks to stretch and walk around.

The community there is cheerful and happy to help with everything you need.  Blocktime organizes workshops and events, and it hosts TEDx events. The members often meet for drinks and stay in touch.

If you need extra equipment, you can use printers, projectors, and microphones that are available in Blocktime. There are Skype rooms if you need some privacy and personal lockers if you don’t like dragging your stuff around. You can use the kitchen for brewing some coffee or whipping up a quick snack.

The place is cat and dog-friendly, so you and your four-legged monster don’t have to be apart longer than you want. When you get tired, you can grab a cup of coffee, or you can find some other nomads and organize a karaoke contest!

Located in Pinheiros, Sharing E.C. is surrounded by different restaurants, pastry shops, and other food options, which is great for the picky eaters who can’t live on sandwiches.

There is a kitchen with a fridge and a microwave, though, so you can always bring your own lunch and heat it when you want. There is also free coffee and at least eight flavors of tea. The lounge area is large and comfortable, so you can recharge our batteries when you take a break.

Wi-Fi is lightning fast, and there is backup internet as well, so you can rest assured that you won’t be left offline in a critical moment. They provide ergonomic chairs, which are very comfy, but they’re the only seating option. You might want to take frequent breaks to preserve your back. The space is well-lit, even during the hours when there’s little natural light. The interior is cluster-free, and the whole place makes it easy to focus and get some work done.

Pro tip

Many of these coworking spaces don’t offer standing desks. If you like a coworking space, but would also like to be able to stand up when you get too tired of sitting, you might want to consider getting a travel stand desk. It’s a much lighter option, and it’s a breeze to set up. It might be a good idea if you tend to suffer from back pains, and it’s definitely much healthier than just sitting down all the time. Here’s an added plus: you can set it up in your room when you’re feeling too lazy to go out!

Regus is our least favorite space to cowork in Sao Paulo

Source: Regus

In our opinion, Regus is the least enjoyable coworking space in Sao Paulo. Of course, it holds over 30 locations in the area, so it may seem highly convenient. You’d think that, once you get the membership, you’d be able to use all the premises, depending on which one suits your needs at the given moment.

So why didn’t we like it? There are several reasons, but the main problems with Regus are:

  • Poorly trained staff
  • Unclear pricing system
  • No community

Regus has a high staff turnover, which is always a red flag. The people who work there are, for the most part, inexperienced and untrained, which means that they usually don’t even know the system they’re supposed to work in. They’ll be unsure of which benefits you get with each package, and sometimes they won’t know if a membership is valid outside of their original location or not. Regus is a big company, so its workers tend to be cold and detached—completely the opposite of what you’d expect in a regular coworking place.

The problem with pricing is far more severe than the thing with the staff.  Every location has a different set of prices they charge for their services, and you can only get them on request. In the age of the internet, this practice is terribly frustrating, and it may even seem untrustworthy. If that wasn’t enough, here’s more—you never know what you’re paying for. Regus simply lacks a reliable pricing system, which means that you are always unsure of what you’re paying for. Obviously, you’ll get a seat and a desk, but all the other benefits, including coffee, are up for debate. In one of their offices, it will be included in the price; in the other, it’ll be charged extra

It gets even worse. It makes sense that the membership will allow you to use all of their locations. In practice, you don’t know which locations—if any—you’d be able to use. You may very well be restricted to your original offices, in which case the essential benefit of Regus—the convenience—will be completely wasted.

Since Regus is an office rental service and coworking is not its main area of business, it’s not really all that nomad-friendly. It doesn’t attract the startup crowd, so there is zero community to talk about. You may make a friend or two if you’re really outgoing and friendly, but don’t expect the atmosphere you’d get in a regular coworking space.

All in all, Regus is fine if you’re a company representative who needs offices for its staff. If you’re a digital, though, you’ll probably want to find something else. If Regus is the most convenient for you, make sure you do your homework and check what is included in the price before you pay it.

Best (and Worst) Coworking Spaces in Krakow

11 best (and two worst) coworking spaces in Krakow, Poland

Krakow is a Polish town known for having one of the youngest demographics in Europe. Many young people initially come to this city for studies. With such a large pool of smart and talented people connecting into one place, backed up by the rise of the Internet, Krakow’s digital work sphere started booming. 

The city is now full of entrepreneurs, startups, freelancers, and other experts in areas such as IT, marketing, content creation, and similar new-age jobs. If you’re planning a trip to, or possibly a long term stay in Krakow, check out our local guide to the city. We’ll teach you the best areas to stay in, as well as what to do in your spare time.

Digital jobs are moving more and more people out of corporate offices and into their own space. Many now enjoy the comfort of a work-from-home lifestyle. However, some people still require a professional space where they can meet with their work partners, clients, and like-minded individuals. 

The culture of working from cafes has been on the rise in the past two decades until we finally saw the creation of coworking spaces. There are plenty of them in Krakow, ranging from small cafes with fast internet, to full-scale office buildings explicitly designed for coworking. Here are our 11 favorites, and two not so great, coworking spaces in Krakow:

  1. Cluster Cowork Jozefitow 8
  2. OffOffice Coworking
  3. Czysta Coworking
  4. Office&Cowork Center Krasinskiego 4/12
  5. Cowork Mrowisko
  6. Coworking Rynek 28
  7. Office&Coworking Zamkowa 2a
  8. Rise.PL Fabryczna Office Park
  9. Yolk CoWorking
  10. Rise.PL 65A Krolewska
  11. Iterators Cowork Krakow
  12. (AVOID) Creative Coworking
  13. (AVOID) Regus Office

Our favorite coworking space in Krakow is Cluster Cowork Jozefitow 8

Source: Cluster

Cluster Cowork is a brand of coworking spaces with two offices in Krakow. The one located on the Jozefitow 8 street was our love at first sight. The high ceiling and ventilation keep the rooms airy, while the tall windows let lots of natural light inside. 

The interior of the place is colorful, while the workplace design is kept minimal to reduce distractions. This is exactly what we look for in a coworking space—a professional-looking environment that turns laid back and casual the moment you step out of the office. 

There are plenty of social and learning events taking place here, and members get to be part of the group Slack channel, which helps kickstart new connections. This is also one of the few places that have coliving arrangements as well. The location is superb, being a few minutes walk from the city center. 

The only issue people may have is the slightly higher than average prices, especially for private office spaces.

OffOffice Coworking

OffOffice comes in close second and is one of the most well-rounded coworking spaces in Krakow. If it had slightly more space, it would easily take #1 on our list. It’s also one of the few places where you can register your Virtual Office. This allows you to have a stable business address, mail service, and the receptionist at your disposal. 

Depending on your agreement, you will be granted free access to conference rooms where you can bring clients, as well as have your logo displayed on a plaque at the entrance. 

Basic refreshments (water, tea, and coffee) are free. There are snacks for purchase on-site, and you can order catering with the company. OffOffice puts a large emphasis on community building, with members enjoying perks such as:

  • Community dinner and drinking events
  • Facebook group for members
  • Organized sports team
  • Social and learning events

When you’re tired, help yourself to the outdoor terrace or lounge area, where you can relax or even take a nap on beanbags or hammocks. Otherwise, play some of the available board or arcade games with other members. 

The only possible downside to this location is that it’s relatively far from the city center.

Czysta Cowork

Source: Czysta

Czysta Cowork is a space made by people who work remotely in the IT sector, so they knew exactly what they were doing when creating it. The space is well equipped, and the interior is lightly designed—the walls are not empty and bland, but not distracting either. 

When you’re not working, help yourself to the lounge area, open-air terrace, or meditation room. 

You can use a fully equipped kitchen that also has a washing machine, or help yourself to a shower. These are great additions for those staying in Krakow for longer. The offices are located in an apartment building, just left of the city center. The team behind the space also promises to share connections and knowledge with people in a similar branch of work.

Office&Cowork Center Krasinskiego 4/12

Source: Office&Co

The brand Office&Cowork Center has multiple offices around Poland and Krakow. The first one we want to talk about is located in Krasinskiego 4/12 street, a few minute’s walk from the city center. Inside the offices is an elegant, minimalistic design. The interior is mostly white with splashes of color coming from art and furniture. This coworking space provides users with free unlimited access to office supplies, including:

  • Printer
  • Scanner
  • Flipchart
  • Projector, etc.

Basic refreshments—water, tea, coffee—are also free. Users have access to a full kitchen and even showers on-site.

Cowork Mrowisko

Another small but must-mention coworking space is Cowork Mrowisko (Cowork Anthill). It’s located inside a renovated apartment in an otherwise residential building, giving it a cozy “home away from home” vibe. The interior design is minimal, there are lots of plants, and the space is pet-friendly. 

Users have access to a full kitchen, showers, personal lockers, and there is an Airbnb for rent on-site. There’s also an emphasis on network building, with a member Slack channel, plus social and learning events to attend. The office is owned by a lovely couple, who’ve obviously put their heart into creating this space, and get lots of praise for their hospitality.

Coworking Rynek 28

Source: Rynek 28 Facebook 

Located in the dead center of Old Town, Krakow, is the stunning office space of Coworking Rynek 28. With speeds of up to 1Gbps, it easily has the best internet on our list. The gorgeous interior design is only outmatched by the view of the city center from the windows. This is also one of the few places that offer standing desks. 

The downside is that the place is small and what you see in the photo are pretty much all of the desk spaces. It also works on corporate, Monday to Friday working hours, meaning you could end up without a desk unless you book in advance.

Office&Coworking Zamkowa 2a

This coworking space is the second Office&Cowork place on our list. The building is located in Zamkowa 2a/2 street (Castle Street), hence the name. It’s located in an otherwise residential area, right across the Vistula river from the city center. 

Although modest in size, it is housed inside a gorgeous apartment with a full kitchen and bathroom at your disposal. 

Basic refreshments, including water, tea, and coffee, are free. There’s a vending machine on-site, and you can order high-quality catering. The place is pet-friendly, you can use free parking on the premise, and members have access to everything 24/7. It’s relatively small compared to other coworking spaces, but definitely worth checking out, especially if you live nearby.

Rise.PL Fabryczna Office Park

Source: Rise.Pl Facebook 

Rise.PL has six office spaces located in Krakow. Our favorite one is inside the Fabryczna Office Park, the biggest eco-friendly business center in the city. The office space is huge, the biggest on this list. It’s full of excellent amenities on-site, such as:

  • Restaurant and cafe
  • Gym
  • Pool table
  • Library
  • Board and arcade games
  • Showers
  • Outdoor terrace
  • Meditation room, and more

The high ceiling and excellent ventilation system give the space plenty of air, and large windows let lots of sunlight inside. The only issue, if we can call it that, is that everything might be a bit too big. An office space this large, mostly covered in glass, full of people can be a little overwhelming when you’re trying to focus. Other than that, we highly recommend this coworking space.

Yolk CoWorking

Source: Yolk

Yolk CoWorking is one of the newest office spaces on our list, having opened its doors in 2020. Small, but noteworthy, it’s located close to the city center. This originally apartment space was reinvented into an office and is filled with state-of-the-art work equipment. The interior has a minimalistic design, with wood being the primary material, and there are lots of plants breathing air into the area. 

Members have access to the space 24/7 by using a cool phone app to unlock the smart door. We only wish there was more space, as everything else in Yolk CoWorking is great, especially the coffee.

Another office worth mentioning under the Rise.PL brand is the one on 65A Krolewska street. Green is the theme of this one, as it’s the main color used in the interior, and the space is full of plants. The two floors it spans on offer a large number of hot desks, a few smaller private office spaces, and event rooms. Members enjoy access to free:

  1. Water
  2. Coffee
  3. Tea
  4. Snacks

Similar to other Rise facilities, they host a decent amount of learning and social events to keep you occupied when you’re not working.

Iterators Cowork Krakow

Another space that recently opened its doors is the Iterators Cowork Krakow. The place is so new, it doesn’t have a website or location on Google Maps yet. The interior is much cozier than similar options of this size, and it heavily reminds of cowork cafes, rather than corporate offices. It also has slightly lower prices than other spaces nearby. The owners are friendly and seem to want to build something of their own. We wish them the best of luck on this journey. For anyone looking for a laid black space to get some work done, check out their office at Jozefa Sarego 12/2 street, right next to the city center.

These are the two coworking spaces we didn’t like in Krakow

Creative Coworking

Source: Creative Coworking

Creative Coworking is one of the oldest shared workspaces in Krakow, and it shows. As it stands, there is nothing wrong with it, and we can’t necessarily say it’s bad. Still, there are much better options that outclass this space, even at a similar price range. It doesn’t help that Creative Coworking is also located way outside inner city perimeters, making it harder to reach. If you’re staying nearby and want to use a cheap, but tolerable coworking space short term, go for it. Otherwise, just go somewhere else.

Regus Office

The global rental brand Regus has over 3,000 office spaces worldwide, with six currently operational in Krakow. We firmly believe you should avoid all of them in this city. But how come we’ve recommended Regus for other destinations, but this time we’re saying stay away? That’s because there are so many greater options at a much better price range and agreement terms. Regus offers nothing you can’t find in other places, on top of only serving long term contracts (12/24 months), and more or less hiding the prices behind negotiation. For these reasons, the company is obsolete when it comes to coworking in Krakow.

Best (and Worst) Coworking Spaces in Berlin

13 best (and one worst) coworking spaces in Berlin

Berlin is the vibrant capital of Germany and the main cultural metropolis in Europe. Its industrial grit is juxtaposed with upscale glamor and its heavy recent history with youthful zest. It’s an unrivaled hotspot of artistry and innovation in Europe, with a new startup emerging every 20 minutes.

It’s no wonder that digital nomads are crazy about Berlin, as it offers the perfect measure of work and play, or rather, an excess of both. Check out this nomad’s advice on what to do in the city:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1I7xQZL6rvU

Berlin has a huge number of coworking spaces, and we’ve listed the creme de la creme among them.

Weserland is the king of coworking spaces in Berlin right now

Source: Weserland Facebook

Conveniently located in Berlin’s Neukölln district on Waserstraße, Weserland is one of the most popular coworking spaces in Berlin. You can find many lunch and after-work options in the neighborhood, as there are numerous restaurants and bars nearby.

Weserland has a Coworker Members’ Choice Award under its belt and rightfully so. As soon as you enter the space, you feel at home. Colorful paper cranes, plush cushions, plants, and daylight make for the most pleasant environment. The owners put a lot of thought in the ergonomics. You can choose from a variety of seating options, which range from sturdy benches to Bosu ball chairs. Some of these seats may look uncomfortable, but they were all carefully designed with your back in mind.

The owners will make you feel welcome in every way. They sometimes cook food for everyone, and you can use the kitchen to prepare your own food. When you need a break, you can even take a nap in their nap room or recline in a hammock.

Rent24 in Karl-Liebknecht-Straße 34 is our least favorite space to cowork in Berlin

Source: Rent24

Rent24 has six coworking spaces in Berlin and more in other German cities and eight other countries. This particular hub spans several floors of a building in East Berlin. It’s our least favorite Rent24 location. It is followed closely by their Potsdamer Straße space, which displaced one of the oldest youth centers in Berlin to the great dissatisfaction of many.

This place is also our least favorite coworking space in Berlin. Although it spans a remarkable 7,700 sqm and offers a range of open-plan spaces, private offices, and more, their guests have reported numerous issues. Some of them are the following:

  • It still resembles a construction site, even though it’s been open for guests for over a year (cables hanging from the ceiling, holes in the ground, etc.)
  • It is too dark (black walls and a large poster on the building covering the windows)
  • Kitchen appliances often break down
  • It is too hot in the summer

These are only some of the complaints made by their guests. We recommend you stay away from Rent24.

Ahoy’s event managers can help you host a workshop or any other meetup there and make sure that everything goes smoothly.

This place has great options to help you fill in your breaks, such as:

  • Foosball

  • Pool
  • Library

betahaus at Rudi-Dutschke-Straße 23

Source: betahaus

There are two betahaus locations in Berlin. We’ve decided to write about this one on Rudi-Dutschke-Straße because it represents the headquarters of betahaus. This space is one of the oldest coworking spaces in Berlin. It’s in the multicultural and diverse Kreuzberg, at a well-connected location. There’s also free parking on the premises.

This is one of the most popular startup meetup locations in the city. On the ground floor, it has a cafe where you can socialize, while other floors are coworking areas. betahaus has all the rooms you might need, from open areas and event spaces to phone booths, as it spreads across 3,000 sqm.

They organize various events to help their users become successful startupers. The most notable ones are betabreakfasts with tech or entrepreneurial focus that take place on Tuesdays.

The monthly price for a hot desk is 159.

CoWomen at Am Krögel 2

Source: CoWomen Facebook

CoWomen is a gorgeous, spacious coworking hub in the center of Berlin. It’s situated in a charming old renaissance building known as Alte Münze. The central location makes it easy to reach and move from. 

If you’re a solo female traveler, this might become your home away from home. You’ll feel completely at ease at this place as it was designed by women for women. Its main purpose is to help female entrepreneurs build a strong network and teach them many useful skills.

The space is beautifully designed and has all the amenities a coworking space should feature. You can enjoy free tea and coffee while working on your thing alone or exchanging ideas with other inspiring coworkers. They organize regular workshops to help their members hone many different skills.

A day in this lovely hub costs €22, and a full month is €249.

Techspace at Lobeckstraße 36

Source: Techspace Facebook

Techspace is a network of coworking spaces in Europe. It features two locations in Berlin. We picked the one in Kreuzberg in southeast Berlin. Techspace repurposed an old industrial building and made it into a modern one filled with coworking facilities. It spans across a total of four floors.

Techspace has retained a bit of the industrial vibe of the old building but made it modern and trendy. There’s a number of offices, phone booths, and a huge event space that can place up to 100 people. If you prefer working outdoors, there are a spacious balcony and a courtyard at your disposal. You can choose from a variety of seats, from standing desks to bean bags.

You can get a dedicated desk for €429 a month.

What we don’t like about Techspace

Even though the place looks like a space shuttle, there’s no air conditioning, so you’ll want to avoid it during the summer.

KAOS at Wilhelminenhofstraße 92

Source: kaosberlin

KAOS is a coworking space truly representative of Berlin. It’s inside an industrial warehouse on the River Spree. It’s a great location if you’d like to sit by the water, and it’s also close to the center of Berlin.

This is a space best suited for creative souls, especially those in art, media, and product design. Apart from offering coworking offices, KAOS features:

  • Workshops
  • Exhibition spaces
  • Event spaces, etc. 

It also has an outdoor terrace where you can hang out with other creative people after work. 

KAOS hosts many cool events. It is especially important for Berlin’s design scene. If you’re any kind of designer, artist, or just a creative mind, we recommend you check this place out.

You can rent a hot desk for €150 per month. 

What we don’t like about KAOS

Beware that some of their furniture is not best suited for long hours spent at your laptop. You can bypass this issue by bringing a travel stand desk and working standing up.

Mindspace at Friedrichstraße 68

Source: Mindspace

Mindspace is a global co-working space provider. It has three locations in Berlin:

  1. On Friedrichstraße
  2. On Krausenstraße
  3. On Skalitzer

Our favorite one is on Friedrichstraße in the heart of Berlin. It’s minutes away from public transport. Their space on Krausenstraße is close by, so you can check them both at once and see which one you prefer.

As many Berlin-based co-working spaces, this one also features hard industrial elements, but they’re softened by cozy furniture and large murals. There are all the usual rooms: open areas, conference rooms, private offices, etc. All of their seats are ergonomic and back-friendly.

You can mingle with an international crowd of remote workers here while drinking free tea, coffee, and even beer. 

The monthly cost for a hot desk is 300.

House of Clouds at Oldenburger Straße 6

Source: House of Clouds Facebook

House of Clouds is located in Moabit, a neighborhood in the center of Berlin. There’s a lot of greenery around it as well as shops and cafes. Moabit’s main street Turmstraße, which is minutes away from this spot, offers many places where you can grab a bite.

This coworking space is much more traditional and conventional than most places on this list. If you’re old-school and prefer to work in a space with an actual office feel, this is the right one for you. You get to sit at adjustable desks and recline in comfy chairs. There’s also a lot of storage space for your stuff. 

The place is open 24/7, and the price is €15 per day and €200 per month.

Thunderbolt Collective at Paul-Lincke-Ufer 20

Source: Thunderbolt Collective Facebook

Thunderbolt Collective is another coworking space in the creative heart of Berlin—Kreuzberg. Being at such a central location, the place is easily accessible. It is surrounded by cute cobblestone streets, fancy cafes, art galleries, and more.

As Germans love repurposing old industrial buildings, this space occupies a former electrical substation. That is why it features an unusually high ceiling, which has an awe-inspiring effect similar to that felt in churches and cathedrals. There’s a 600-sqm open area, beautifully designed loft space, conference rooms, a game room, etc. You can even rest your eyes in a nap room.

There’s also a living room with a fireplace where you can take a break while enjoying your free coffee and chatting. You’ll meet many creative people here from various industries.

You can get a dedicated desk for €400 per month.

tuesday coworking at Belziger Straße 71

Source: tuesday coworking Facebook

tuesday coworking offers intimate spaces in Schöneberg at two locations:

  1. Belziger Straße 71
  2. Feurigstraße 51

By paying membership for one of these, you get access to both. These are lovely, homelike spaces best suited for individuals or small teams of creatives. You get access to all the amenities you may need.

tuesday coworking was created as an alternative to commercial workspaces, which are becoming larger, more expensive, and more impersonal by the day. At this place, they truly put a focus on community and culture instead of business and money. You’re sure to meet the most eclectic crowd of coworkers this city has to offer here.

The price for a hot desk is only €85 per month.

b+office at Dudenstraße 10

Source: bplusoffice

b+office is located in the historic Bauhaus loft. With bike parking and public transit stations nearby, it’s easy to access and move around from. The place is also close to the famous Bergmannkiez.

This space is airy and filled with natural lights thanks to its high ceilings and huge windows. The design of b+office is minimalist but still trendy and fully functional. There are a wide-open area and smaller offices as well as large conference rooms.

The community at b+office is laid-back and friendly. You can network with them during your breaks at an outdoor terrace or play foosball or darts. If you’re visiting during the summer, be sure to come here on Friday as that’s when they make a delicious barbecue, which includes both meat and veggie options. 

The price is €17 per day and €195 per month.

Enklave at Kienitzer Straße 100

Source: Enklave Facebook

Enklave is a community-oriented space in Berlin’s Neukölln. It’s a super convenient location whether you’re coming by bus, on foot, by bike, or by car. There are public transport stations in the vicinity and car and bike parking on the premises.

This is a great place, both for locals and traveling remote workers. As a member, you get 24-hour access. The space is divided into three zones:

  • Social
  • Focus
  • Silent

They also offer a variety of technical equipment ranging from dual-monitor computers to video recording equipment.

Even though a buzzing community gathers here, you can still isolate yourself if you want to. Once you’re done with work, you can join one of their daily food events—lunches, brunches, beer tastings. If you want to meet like-minded new people, this is the place to be.

You can get a taste of the place by signing up for a free trial. Otherwise, you’ll pay €100 per month.

skalitzer33 at Skalitzer Straße 33

Source: skalitzer33

This name of this place is not the most creative one, but it reveals a convenient location. skalitzer33 is at the heart of Kreuzberg between “Kotti” and “Görli.” It’s in an industrial brick building with high ceilings and lots of light. There are parking on-site and public transport stations nearby.

You can choose a desk in the open-plan space, or if you prefer more peace and quiet, you can go to a smaller, more private office. You’ll have plenty of storage space at your disposal to put away all your unnecessary stuff. You can use their small kitchen when you need to grab a bite.

When you need more space for a project, you can rent their spacious loft. Another cool thing about this place is that you can even set up a pop-up store there at their shop with a window front. You can take a nap in the nap room or hang out at the outdoor terrace. If you need clean clothes, there’s even a laundry service here.

The price is €15 per day and €196 per month.

Best (and Worst) Coworking Spaces in Vietnam

Check out these 9 best (and 3 worst) coworking spaces in Vietnam

Vietnam is quickly rising in popularity among digital nomads and people looking for a permanent place to move to in east Asia. Previously overlooked for popular nearby countries of Thailand, Malaysia, and even Japan, recent economic and technological prosperity put major cities of this region on all remote worker maps.

More and more jobs are moving out of big, expensive offices, and into people’s living spaces. Both companies and workers see a mutual benefit:

  • Businesses save on money on space, office supplies, and regular maintenance
  • Individuals enjoy the freedom to work from wherever they feel most comfortable and are close to or at home

Recently, coworking spaces have started to become more popular and requested. They bring a new dynamic of relaxed working and socializing, without the added pressures of either. Previously, what was holding Vietnam back was relatively low average internet speeds (5 Mbps). However, major cities have significantly upped their game with the increase in popularity of online gaming, streaming services, and coworking, among other things.

Our favorite coworking cities in Vietnam

Before we show you the best coworking spaces, we have to talk about the best areas to station yourself in. We’ll give you three major locations across the country and list three amazing, and one bad coworking space to know about in each. Our top cities are:

Hanoi The capital city
Ho Chi Minh City The largest city packed with digital nomads
Da Nang A less crowded, coastal city

Best (and worst) coworking spaces in Hanoi

Hanoi is the capital city of Vietnam and a force rapidly rising on the global economic map. Like many cities in this situation, Hanoi is suffering from its own success. The city center and major business districts are booming, but so are the prices. While many come to the city to find success in their business or career, it’s getting harder for the average Vietnamese citizen.

There’s an obvious gap in development between rural and inner-city areas. That being said, people working in modern industry sectors such as IT, marketing, finance, and similar have great opportunities waiting for them in Hanoi. Here are the coworking spaces worth the mention:

  1. Toong Embassy
  2. CoGo Viet Tower
  3. UP@VPBank
  4. (AVOID) VSV Corner

Our favorite coworking space in Hanoi is Toong Source: TOONG Facebook

Toong coworking spaces are a massively popular chain for many good reasons. Their areas are spacious and have lots of natural sunlight. The interior designers did an amazing job, as well. The work stations are modern, elegant, and full of plants. Every room is colorful and gallery-like. 

The working space is located in a high-end building with both office and living spaces. Because of that, the building complex features amenities like a gym, swimming pool, library, and more. Toong Embassy is one of the rare spaces that work on Sunday, as well. The only downside might be the off-center location in the north of the city.

CoGo is another famous chain of coworking spaces in the city, with (soon to be) five offices in total. CoGo’s home in Viet Tower, Hanoi, takes up a stunning 3,300 square meters. The area is spacious and airy, and it offers great views of the city from all sides. It has everything you expect from a high-end office space. There are plenty of desks or smaller offices to choose from at a reasonable price. It also hosts plenty of learning and community events.

UP @VPBank

This facility is part of the UP Coworking Spaces chain. It is located on the 21st and 22nd floor of the luxurious VPBank Tower. The modern office spaces have an inspiring “I made it” vibe because the building and equipment are so state-of-the-art. The space offers some awesome, unique additional features, such as a swimming pool, trampoline, a podcasting room, and more. There are plenty of social and learning events hosted in the building, and it has a dedicated TEDx host space. Other utilities include on-site parking, personal lockers, kitchen, and more. The only issue you might have with Up-Co is that, with such a high-end space, the prices are a bit inflated, especially when it comes to food and entertainment in the surrounding area.

Avoid VSV Corner

Source: VSV Facebook

There are multiple things wrong with VSV Corner. For one, the official website is “under construction”, despite the place being operational since 2017. The place also has no official social media where you can scout them out. It doesn’t offer anything worth mentioning, and mostly relies on the reputation of the Vietnam Silicon Valley, where the space is located. This gives false promises that you’ll find many new leads for your career and business. Although they do have conference rooms and private office spaces in the building, they aren’t listed as for rent.

We can assume they’re only used for private arrangements. The location is fine, but there are plenty of amazing and developed coworking spaces nearby, not to mention that, since this is a major business hub, prices for space are not competitive. Nearby entertainment and food prices can also be massively inflated.

Best (and worst) coworking spaces in Ho Chi Minh

Ho Chi Minh City, commonly known as Saigon, is the largest and most populated city in Vietnam. It is home to nearly 8.5 million citizens when rounding up all municipalities. It is estimated that as much as 25% of the city’s population are foreign workers, mostly from other Asian countries. Here are the coworking spaces to know about:

  1. The Hive Thao Dien
  2. Dreamplex Dien Bien Phu
  3. Wor.Kafe
  4. (AVOID) WeWork E. Town Central

Our favorite coworking space in Ho Chi Minh city is The Hive Thao Dien

Source: The Hive Facebook

The Hive is our first mention in Ho Chi Minh City. The interior is elegant and mostly made of wood, making it feel more natural. The Hive Coworking spaces can be found across Asia and overseas, including in cities like:

  • Melbourne
  • Bangkok
  • Hong Kong, and more.

Your membership status and perks can be carried over to those places as you travel for work. Being a multinational company, the staff speaks proper English. It’s no surprise that non-local workers quite prefer their spaces. The Hive strives to not just be a place of work, but also a community. When you’re not working, you can enjoy the in-house relaxation room, swimming pool, and rooftop terrace. The only drawback is that the location is slightly off the city center, across the Saigon Bridge 1.

Other coworking spaces to check out in Ho Chi Minh

Dreamplex Dien Bien Phu

Source: Facebook Dreamplex

The Dreamplex brand has three coworking spaces in Ho Chi Minh City. All of them are highly recommended, but our favorite one is Dien Bien Phu. The location is great, being just outside major central city areas. The interior is creative and colorful, and the three floors it covers offer plenty of space. 

It also houses a state-of-the-art auditorium where events, such as TEDx talks take place. Brand members also enjoy perks with their brand’s sponsors. This includes things like special discounts at certain food and entertainment places, among other things. 

The price is also worth mentioning, as it’s competitive compared to similar spaces. If there’s one drawback, it’s the corporate-like working hours. If you prefer a flexible schedule, as opposed to regular nine-to-five, you should pick another place.

Wor.Kafe

Source: Wor.Kafe Facebook

As the name cleverly suggests, Wor.Kafe is a work-friendly cafe designed with coworking and comfort in mind. The cafe is located on the ground floor and serves as a part of the ta.maison Boutique Hotel. This makes it a great meeting place for coworkers, and even a long term stay option for remote workers and expats. 

This place is ideal for those who don’t require too much office space and enjoy a more laid back, social dynamic. Since the space is oriented towards working, you won’t have to worry about any regular cafe distractions, such as rude customers, loud music, and inefficient workspace.

Although smaller than many other coworking spaces, the place manages to pack quite a few designated rooms. It even has a TEDx community space on site. The location is a pleasant commercial area, in the dead center in the city. The only downside is that the price is noticeably higher than other equally good spaces.

In Ho Chi Minh, we recommend you avoid WeWork E. Town Central

Source: Facebook WeWork

WeWork E. Town Central supposedly has everything you might need, but, unfortunately,  it doesn’t. Although there’s plenty of space, there aren’t too many rooms to make use of. The policy of only being able to rent on a monthly basis is ridiculous. Who wants to risk paying one month upfront and not liking it? That’s awful for those looking for short-term solutions. Then again, those looking to settle for longer periods can find better offers elsewhere. 

The prices are through the roof compared to other places. The only positive note is that it’s accessible 24/7. Everything else can be found in other places, but either better or cheaper.

Best (and worst) coworking spaces in Da Nang, Vietnam

For those looking to avoid crowded cities, overflowing with tourists and foreign workers that just rack up the prices, Da Nang is the place to be. The small (for Asian standards) coastal city is not only expat-friendly, but it’s also home to some of the top beaches in Vietnam. This makes it ideal for those looking to escape from winter in the western hemisphere and enjoy working in their extended summer. 

The public transportation is at a decent level, and Da Nang has its international airport, making for good inner and outer city connections. Here are the noteworthy coworking spaces:

  1. Danang Coworking Space (DNC)
  2. TOP Coworking Space
  3. Enouvo Coworking and Coliving Space
  4. (AVOID) IoT Space

The best coworking space in Da Nang is DNC (Danang Coworking Space)

Source: DNC Facebook

Danang Coworking Space takes the number one on our list. Its offices are spacious, well-lit, and the high ceilings and good air conditioning keep the rooms cool. The interior design is colorful and vibrant, but not overdone. 

The location is great, close to the river Han. The bridge nearby makes both sides of the city easily accessible. There are plenty of rental options, and the prices are fair when compared to other options nearby. The space is also home to both social and educational events for its members. The ambiance is youthful, both staff and visitors speak proper English, and there’s plenty of room to grow your social and working network.

Our second choice is TOP Coworking Space. There are plenty of positive things we can say about it:

  • Free underground parking with security 24/7
  • Backup generator assisting against power outages
  • Relaxation and entertainment rooms
  • Fully equipped kitchen
  • Personal lockers

The office setting is colorful and spacious, and there are lots of options to choose from. Compared to similar spaces, the pricing is great. TOP also has lots of community activities, such as workshops, gathering events, and even a dedicated sports team.

  • Private rooms
  • Showers

If you’re in Da Nang, avoid IoT SPACE

Seeing negative reviews always feels bad, especially when a place looks promising on photos. That’s the issue with IoT SPACE. There are plenty of positive things to stay:

  • Modern office area
  • Comfortable chairs
  • Good tables
  • Lots of natural light

That being said, all the benefits we could list are honestly more or less what is expected of a modern-day coworking space. Some people have raised genuine concern with hygiene, maintenance, and distracting noises coming from the rest of the building. 

Another worrying trend is that great customer reviews seem to be older, while the negative ones are more recent. It doesn’t help that the prices are not competitive either. For example, TOPCo, which is #2 on our list of good spaces, is only a few blocks away. There are just better options out there.

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

Source: 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.

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.

Best (and Worst) Coworking Spaces in Bangkok

Eight best coworking spaces in Bangkok

Internet-based work offers plenty of advantages. There’s no need to leave your home and suffer terrible weather just to get to work. You’re not bound to one place, and can instead work wherever you please. You’re the master of your time, as you set up your own schedule.

Simply put, it allows you to take the opportunities you would otherwise have to miss. You can travel around in search of inspiration, or you may simply decide to bring some work with you when you go on vacation. The workaholics among you don’t even have to leave work to go on holiday they can have their cake and eat it too!

Pros and cons of working from home

To be perfectly honest, though, some of these advantages get old in no time. You don’t have to deal with traffic and bad weather, but you get a bit lonely without any colleagues to keep you company. Your time is your own, but more often than not, you’ll find yourself distracted by amazingly diverse issues. You’ll be hungry, and your fridge is just a few paces away. You’ll get a sudden urge to brush your teeth. And, well, seeing that your focus is a bit off today, you might just take a short nap and do the work a tiny bit later.

You don’t have to take days off work to travel, true. Still, when you do take your work with you on holiday, doesn’t it seem like an awful waste to spend half a day locked up in your hotel room?

A clever solution to all the problems associated with working from home is coworking space. It allows you to go out on the days you feel a bit restless. When you get stuck, a change of environment might be enough to get your productivity back on track. Coworking spaces are often organized and decorated in a way that boosts mood and motivation, so that is an additional plus. And, most importantly, they keep you from being cooped up in your room when on vacation.

Discover great coworking spaces in Bangkok

When you’re in Bangkok, the last thing you’ll want to do is stay in your apartment. Work or no work, you’ll want to go out and experience everything this city can offer. So, you see, finding a great coworking space is an imperative of a pleasant work holiday.

In a city of that size, it might be a bit intimidating to even try finding a good place to work. That is why this article offers you a list of eight best coworking spaces in Bangkok, organized by their proximity to the most popular tourist areas.

The Hive is our favorite coworking space in Bangkok

Source: The Hive (Thonglor)

The Hive is situated only 5 minutes by car from Thonglor BTS station, and it’s probably one of the largest and fanciest coworking spaces you’ll see. It occupies five floors, and there is a lounge area on the rooftop. The environment is beautiful and cozy, with plenty of sunlight and gentle color schemes, so it’s a great place to work.

Aside from the basics, they offer personal lockers, printers, scanners, photocopiers, and free beer and coffee. The Hive is open from 8 am to 8 pm, Mondays through Fridays, but it doesn’t work on weekends. They charge 350 THB/day.

We loved these coworking spaces too

If you don’t love The Hive as much as we do, that’s perfectly fine. There are many more wonderful coworking spaces in Bangkok. Here are our favorites:

  1. Poolsub Space
  2. Hubba
  3. Kliquedesk
  4. E88
  5. ONEDAY|Forward
  6. Cluster

Coworking spaces in Riverside

Riverside is probably the most peaceful area of Bangkok. The traffic is less troublesome than in other, busier areas. It’s practically an oasis in the middle of an extremely urban environment. Unfortunately, coworking spaces are scarce there, so here’s our top pick.

Poolsub Space

Source: Poolsub Space

On the right side of the Chao Phraya River, Poolsub Space boasts a super convenient location for anybody staying in the Riverside area. They work Monday through Saturday, from 8 am to 8 pm, but are closed on Sundays. The prices start at 750 THB/day, and the space is pet-friendly.

When you get tired of all the hard work, there are options to pick from. They offer:

  • Free snacks;
  • Free tea and coffee;
  • An outdoor terrace and a chill-out area. 

Everyone needs a break from time to time, right?

Coworking spaces on Sukhumvit Road

If you’re staying somewhere in the Sukhumvit Road area, you’re probably enjoying the nightlife. You may not be sure where to go to get some work done, though. Some of the best coworking spaces Bangkok has to offer are in this area. Here are the most important ones.

Hubba

Source: HUBBA Thailand

Now, Hubba can be found in three locations. The first is about ten minutes from Ekkamai station. Prepare to be amazed: this coworking space offers a trampoline. If that is not enough for you, fine, it also provides standing desks, bean bags, scanning and printing equipment, and a separate Skype room. There’s an outdoor terrace, a chill-out area, and free beer. This is the only Hubba that accepts credit cards, and it works Monday through Sunday, from 9 am to 10 pm.

The second Hubba is at the Habito Mall Phra Khanong Nuea, and it’s open 24 h/day, seven days a week. Finally, the third is at the Siam Discovery, and this one is open 24 h/day, Monday through Friday.

For all three Hubbas, the prices start at 290 THB/day.

Kliquedesk

Source: Kliquedesk

Conveniently placed, Kliquedesk is only a five-minute walk from Sukhumvit downtown. It is also close to Nana BTS station. They offer free parking on-premise, ergonomic chairs, and free coffee.

The interior is painted bright yellow, which makes it a bit unusual in comparison to other coworking spaces, which usually favor neutral colors. Still, yellow is said to improve mood and increase optimism. So, if you’ve been feeling a bit down, this is the place that is most likely to cheer you up.

They are open from 9 am to 7 pm, Mondays through Saturdays, and charge 300 THB/day.

E88

Source: E88 Bangkok

E88 is located in—you’ve guessed it—the E88 Building. They offer printing equipment, personal lockers, and free coffee and drinking water. The location of the coworking space is great because the building has a large parking lot, and there are restaurants nearby for when you start feeling peckish.

The interior is interesting, with a few pops of color here and there and little plants scattered around on shelves. There is plenty of space, and the lighting is excellent.

Here you can pay 150 THB for two hours, or 300 THB/day. They are open every day from 9 am to 10 pm.

ONEDAY|Forward

Source: ONEDAY

ONEDAY|Forward is a part of a hostel, so it’s convenient if you want to go out of your room, but don’t feel like actually going somewhere else. If you don’t stay at the hostel, this coworking space is probably worth visiting even if you don’t have to work.

Simply put, it’s beautiful. It’s all in earthy and green, and it’s decorated with lots of plants in the corners, on the shelves, by the computer, and hanging from the ceiling. The atmosphere is great for creative work.

Other than pure beauty, this coworking space offers a ping-pong table, library, and a kitchen. There is a chill-out area and free coffee.

They are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The price per day is 350 THB.

Cluster

Opening hours are every day from 9 am to 6 pm, and the monthly membership will cost you 2,500 THB.

Best (and Worst) Coworking Spaces in Cebu

Best (and worst) coworking spaces in Cebu

Cebu is an island province of the Philippines Central Visayas region. The island has a long history of settlers from different parts of the world, all of whom have left an influence on the culture. Plenty of travelers that go there to live and work will find everything they need in Cebu City. 

As it stands, it’s the only place where you’ll find reliable internet and coworking places. The island may not be the #1 place to set up your long term business plan, but it’s definitely a top pick for those who enjoy working and traveling. Remote workers who enjoy being close to nature will particularly like it. The island’s main city will be your working headquarters, while on the weekends, you can enjoy the amazing nature preserves out of town. You can also check out our local guide to Cebu to find things to see and do while staying there.

With more and more jobs moving out of corporate offices and into personal space, people no longer need to be permanently situated for work. This opened up pretty much the entire world to digital nomads and gave rise to a new work culture globally. Major tourist destinations, like Cebu, are now catering to this new age of travelers and settlers. As a result, Cebu City is full of amazing coworking spaces. Here’s the list of nine great and two bad coworking spaces:

Our favorite coworking space in Cebu is ASPACE Crossroads

ASPACE Crossroads is highly praised for its focus on community building. It heavily invests in social gatherings, celebrating popular holidays, themed events, etc. This approach makes it a place where people come and stay for a long while. It also has a dedicated TEDx host space with some special events. The workspace interior is mostly in elegant black, white, and gray, with splashes of color from different types of artwork. It’s pet-friendly and has cozy relaxing areas where you can take a break. 

A drawback could be that it might seem a bit unprofessional since the rooms have empty concrete walls and an open ceiling, making it look unfinished. That being said, it’s among the most highly praised coworking spaces in Cebu, and the prices are also competitive.

Here are the other coworking spaces in Cebu we liked

The Company Cebu

Source: The Company Facebook

The Company Cebu coworking space is located in the city center in the area known as IT Park. The list of perks and amenities this space offers is great, but what really makes it stand out is their focus on building a community. They offer so many out-of-work activities, such as drink and lunch evenings, workshops, and even TEDx events. They also connect all the members through a Facebook group and a community app. This makes meeting new people and finding new business and other connections easy. Although it doesn’t offer its own coliving space, there are plenty of affordable Airbnb’s nearby.

KMC Flexible Workspace

The Flexible Workspace is part of the KMC Skyrise 4 building—an 18 story rentable office space spanning over 13,000 square meters. The state-of-the-art building is equipped with 24/7 IT support staff, backup power generators, and multiple internet connections. Among the coworking spaces in Cebu, this office building is definitely one of, if not the most modern. The prices are surprisingly fair, all things considered. There are also plenty of community events, workshops, and social gatherings to take part in. Other useful facilities in the space include:

  • Childcare
  • Full kitchen
  • Showers
  • Lounge
  • Yoga studio
  • Meditation room

Openmind Coworking Space

Source: Openmind Facebook

Located in the IT Park of Cebu City, what immediately sets Openmind apart is that it’s open 24/7 and has rates to accommodate early birds and night owls. This feature is a favorite among young workers who enjoy flexible working hours. The space is more oriented towards freelancers and small groups. They have a set of fixed prices, but you can ask about additional discounts depending on the time you aim to be there. Usually, they’ll offer lower prices for evening and night shifts. There are a few private offices that you have to book in advance— bear in mind that they get rented out quickly. The furnishing is modern, and there’s plenty of equipment to use. Openmind also has free parking on the premises. The only downside is that most desks are somewhat clumped up.

Altspace Cafe

Altspace is a minimalistic cafe offering food and drinks and a great place to work or study. Owned and operated by a local couple, the place is small and able to fit 25 people tops. It’s clean and cozy and maintains a family atmosphere. The drink and food choices are good, and there are usually promotional prices on workspace packages. When you get tired, you can relax in the lounge area and grab a bite to eat or have a hot drink. The only drawback, like with other coworking cafes, is that it’s walk-in only. The cafe is also rentable for larger events.

ACX Outsourcing Hub

Source: ACX Hub Facebook

ACX Hub is an IT and digital marketing agency based in Cebu. Within their offices, they offer a small coworking space. It is noteworthy because it’s exceptionally affordable and has plenty of rates to choose from. It’s quiet, making it ideal for students to study or work on projects. The furniture is not as great as in some other places, but having in mind the more-than-reasonable price, it’s definitely not bad. 

Individual freelancers might like their simple cubicles, while small groups can use the big tables.  Unfortunately, it’s not equipped to hold entire teams of people. Still, within this relatively small space, they manage to organize community gatherings, workshops, and events you can attend. The internet speeds are crazy good, easily going over 300 Mbps. While not offering a lot, ACX is definitely worth mentioning.

Nomads Hub

Nomads Hub is one of the few coworking and coliving spaces in Cebu. Apart from getting work done, guests can rent hostel beds, use the laundromat, and get food and drinks while they stay. The location is also nice and central, with plenty of things to see and do around the motel. The drawback is that there aren’t dedicated workstations, so it tends to fill up quite fast, and you could end up without space. Members enjoy being part of a tight community that holds events like:

  • Social gatherings
  • Workshops
  • Mentorship programs

Workplace Cafe

As the name suggests, the Workplace Cafe is aimed towards those that enjoy working under the coziness of a cafe but need the reliability of an office. The atmosphere will be casual, but the furniture looks classy. There are a total of three Workplaces Cafes around Cebu:

  1. Ramos, Cebu City
  2. Banawa, Cebu City
  3. Tipolo, Mandaue City

Feel free to visit any of their branches. The cafes are all good at what they offer to the individual workers but definitely aren’t for group projects. They’re worth checking out, though.

Avant Offices Inc

Source: Avant Offices Facebook

Avant Offices is a gorgeous office setting where less means more. The interior design is simplistic but not monotone. This does leave visitors with a slightly more corporate and serious vibe. Unfortunately, that’s pretty much all Avant Offices offers. 

The space doesn’t exactly offer any reason to pick it over the others. It’s more of a “get in, get work done, and leave” type of setting. This reminds people too much of regular jobs, which freelancers and remote workers tend to run away from. The private offices are great, though. Because of this, we recommend this place much more to groups than to individuals. Smaller businesses and startups might find a home in this space.

These are the two coworking spaces we would not recommend

Desko Cebu

Source: Facebook Desko

Desko is a 24/7 coworking space with an onsite restaurant and cafe, and plenty of free drinks. And that’s all the positives summed up. The space offers no private office or dedicated desks, meaning you have to find your own space. That won’t be an issue, though, as it’s been quite empty recently. Users have reported issues such as:

  1. Water shortage
  2. Internet losing connection or slowing down
  3. Unavailable or uninterested staff

To make things worse, the prices are quite high for what it offers. There are just too many better options, even nearby.

iioffice Cebu

Source: iioffice Facebook

At first glance, there’s nothing wrong with iioffice. The interior is nice, and it seems well equipped. So, what’s the issue? Every desk, office space, and conference room are on a first-come, first-served basis. You can’t rent your spot in advance and be sure you’ll have it. This makes it practically impossible for groups of people to coordinate, much less work in private. You may even end up without a place to sit if you come in too late. There are some ergonomic chairs, but not enough of them. Some are reported to be overused and in dire need of replacing. This leaves some people sitting on plastic chairs or armchairs. 

The positive note about iioffice is that it is noticeably cheaper. Other than that, the company doesn’t offer us good enough reason to choose it over other spaces.

Best (and Worst) Coworking Spaces in Split

7 fantastic (and one unremarkable) coworking spaces in Split

As a seaside town, Split is one of the hottest spots for digital nomads in Croatia. The frequent inflow of foreigners, especially during the high season in July and August, makes communication here easy since the locals speak English well. If you are traveling to Split for the first time, this vlog may help you discover the best of it:

You will have no problem finding a decent Wifi connection in Split, and an excellent one in its modest offer of coworking spaces. Coffee shops, bars, and restaurants are popular places for digital nomads to do a couple of hours of work in. Take a look at our list of the best coworking spaces Split has to offer, some great cafés, and one place that you could do without.

WIP Coworking is the best place to cowork in Split

Image source: WIP Coworking Facebook

WIP Coworking carries that casual Mediterranean vibe that makes you feel relaxed the moment you walk in. It has an open plan with more than 50 seats at the standing desks and hot desks.

The seats are not all the same, and you can choose between more casual ones or the ones giving you a more private workspace. Reading nooks and couches are also good places to work from—just don’t hog the space for too long.

You will also find four phone booths and a Skype room in WIP Coworking, although you need to book them in advance. WIP Coworking is fully equipped with a projector, dual and single monitors, scanner, and printer for presentations and workshops. They organize events, so make sure to stop by for some networking.

Since the beach is close by, you can leave your things in a personal locker and go for a dip. If you are not up for swimming, the coffee is free and comes from the professional machine that the staff or other coworkers will gladly show you how to use. For lunch, you can bring your food and store it in the kitchen, or cook with other coworkers and have fun trying local dishes.

CUKARIN is a place you can skip when coworking in Split

Image source: CUKARIN Facebook

CUKARIN is a pastry shop with lots of room and seating choices. The chairs are fairly comfortable, but the problem is that you will hardly find a power outlet by the tables.

This is a popular eatery in Split, especially for families and large groups of friends, usually celebrating something. Because of this, CUKARIN is loud and too distracting for doing any kind of work except answering emails. Another reason why you may have trouble working here is their Wi-Fi, which is slow and even unresponsive at times.

The only thing CUKARIN is good for is grabbing a cup of coffee and pastry on your way to a coworking space or a better café. Other than that, you will only get annoyed working here because the conditions for that are subpar.

Six coworking spaces and cafés in Split worth checking out

Here are other coworking spaces and some cafés in Split that we found interesting for coworking:

  1. Saltwater Workspace Split
  2. Amosfera Coworking
  3. CoCreative Coworking
  4. Mala kavana — Split
  5. D16 Coffee
  6. Odmah Iza

Saltwater Workspace Split

Image source: Saltwater Workspace Split Facebook

Saltwater Workspace Split is a charming coworking space overlooking the marina. You will always feel welcome coming here thanks to the friendly staff, especially the owner Tanja.

This coworking space is perfect for those who need video and audio equipment, as well as monitors for editing recorded material. The chairs are comfortable, and you will be able to work sitting down for hours. In case you want to switch positions, Saltwater Workspace has some nice spots in the corner where you can install your travel stand desk and continue working on your feet.

If you want to build your contact base, stay after hours when they have workshops or events. Although Saltwater Workspace is open during weekdays from 9 am to 5 pm, you get 24/7 access with higher membership plans.

Amosfera Coworking

Image source: Amosfera Coworking Facebook

Amosfera Coworking is a spacious coworking space with an open floor plan and lots of seating areas. The chairs are not all ergonomic, and some are a bit impractical for prolonged sitting, but you can always work at the standing desk.

All members have access to the scanner, printer, and photocopier free of charge. The conference room is also free for members, but you need to book it since it’s popular and always occupied.  

People at Amosfera Coworking are friendly and welcoming, making it easy to fit right in and maybe even meet future collaborators. There is plenty of free coffee and drinking water in the kitchen, and you can have lunch at one of the eateries nearby.        

CoCreative Coworking

Image source: CoCreative Coworking Facebook

CoCreative Coworking is a two-story loft located in the center of Split. This coworking space is popular with the creative community, gathering both freelancers and entrepreneurs.

You won’t find a typical coworking space here. CoCreative Coworking belongs to the architecture company that rents the extra space to coworkers. Standing desks, comfortable chairs, and a quiet room make this space great for concentrating on more demanding tasks. The major downside is that the space doesn’t have enough power outlets, so you might end up depending on your battery.

Mala kavana — Split

Image source: Mala kavana — Split Facebook

Mala kavana — Split is one of the most popular eateries in Split that many digital nomads visit for food and decent Wi-Fi.

You should avoid coming here during lunch since that’s when Mala kavana is the most crowded and too loud to work in. Another downside is that this is a family restaurant and people come here to celebrate all sorts of things. This makes it impossible to find a decent table sometimes, especially during weekends, even if you don’t mind working surrounded by noise.  

If you come early enough, you can choose among the available chairs since some are comfortable enough, but others are a real pain. While working in Mala kavana, order some food since it’s famous for the exquisite local cuisine.

D16 Coffee

Image source: D16 Coffee Instagram

D16 Coffee is a cozy coffee shop in the city center where you will most likely meet other digital nomads. The main reasons for this are their professional baristas and varieties of brewed coffee from freshly roasted beans.

Tables are somewhat small and you won’t be able to fit two laptops, so it’s better to come here for solo work. Chairs are actually not that bad, and you can spend hours sitting and working here without feeling sore. D16 Coffee has one of the best Wi-Fi networks, so that characteristic won’t disappoint you at all.

You may be annoyed by having trouble finding a free seat, since this café can barely fit 20 people. If that happens, have a coffee to go and come back the next day to try your luck.

Odmah Iza

Image source: Odmah Iza Facebook

Odmah Iza is a pleasant café with comfortable chairs and great Wi-Fi, ideal for making it your coworking stop. The décor is full of vintage details and fun colors, so you will easily find inspiration to be productive.

On the downside, they allow smoking inside. If you are not a fan of this habit, you may want to consider working from someplace else or coming early when it’s almost empty.
