The Embassy Coworking Space is a favorite spot among the freelancers in Da Nang due to its convenient location in the city center. It is close to all relevant places, such as the market, local coffee shops, book stores, restaurants, and mini-marts. The public transport stops are also nearby, so even the out-of-towners don’t have trouble locating the place.

Another convenient aspect of The Embassy is that its members can access any of its four locations in Da Nang. Apart from the one in the heart of the city, it also has offices in Tran Phu, Nguyen Van Linh, and Hoang Ke Viem.

DNC — Danang Coworking Space is our office crush! We love its inspiring design!

Source: DNC — Danang Coworking Space

Danang Coworking Space has only one establishment in Da Nang, but it is a rather spectacular one. The place is spacious, well-lit, and air-conditioned. It is situated in downtown Da Nang, next to the Han river. It is in the vicinity of all the most important locations for remote workers, such as the best coffee shops, restaurants, banks, and stores.

DNC offers a plethora of services and packages for its visitors. Apart from the standard hot desks, there are dedicated desks, private offices, several meeting room packages, rentable event spaces, and even a virtual office option.

DNC has partnerships with many influential organizations and businesses that offer consulting and mentorship programs to its members. You can attend frequently organized events at this coworking space, learn new skills, and expand your network.

This coworking space is highly praised by its members. The staff is reported as being forthcoming and hospitable and having a vital trait for foreign customers — proper English speaking skills. The place also has enough power outlets for all members, and the desk space is more than sufficient for comfortable coworking.

What we didn’t like about DNC

DNC is not without flaws. When it has a lot of visitors, the internet speed is reported as average, which is below par for a superb coworking hub. The phone booth is also not soundproof, which is quite distracting for coworkers. There are also no clearly visible signs on the road that point to the coworking space’s entrance, which is rather confusing for first-time visitors.

TOP Coworking Space is our top choice for startups in Da Nang!

Source: TOP Coworking Space

TOP Coworking Space is yet another space located at the heart of the Da Nang city. That is particularly convenient as it not only minimizes commute time but also makes it easier to meet with clients.

There is also unlimited free parking below the building, which has 24/7 security. You can freely leave your valuables in your TOP personal locker. This is especially convenient for digital nomads and travelers because they can rest assured their money, work files, and personal documents are stored safely.

Another advantage of the TOP Coworking Space is that it has its own power generator. Power outages are not uncommon in Vietnam, so this is a welcome benefit as you will have uninterrupted electricity and internet access at all times.

TOP works on the Startup Studio Model, which is a platform for supporting new businesses. The coworking space offers excellent Accelerator and Incubator programs for young entrepreneurs. It also hosts regular workshops, meetups, and member-exclusive events.

Nomad Space & Cafe is a coworking space that will make you feel at home!

 

Source: Nomad Space Vietnam

Nomad Space & Cafe is a relative newcomer to the Da Nang coworking scene. It opened in 2019 and has already gathered quite a following.

What is so endearing about this coworking spot is that it is nothing like the big players, such as WeWork or The Hub. This place is located in the city center but on a tranquil street, soothing to those remoters that need peace and quiet to focus on their work. The offices are snug and cozy, and the visitors here have formed a close-knit community.

Another point that distinguishes this spot is their significantly lower prices. If you are on a budget and cannot splurge on the more expensive coworking spaces in Da Nang, you should give Nomad Space a go. It also has an on-site cafe that serves delicious coffee to power your work endeavors. In case you need a break, you can soak up the sun and chat with other coworkers in the outside chill-out area.

What is the disadvantage of the Nomad Space?

Nomad Space & Cafe may be a favorite of those who are not fans of mainstream coworking hubs, but we should note that a comfy spot like this one comes at a price. You won’t be able to enjoy all the amenities that a larger place can provide, such as a virtual office, conference and event rooms, or soundproof booths.

Enouvo Space is the ultimate coworking+coliving spot in Da Nang!

Source: Enouvo Space

Enouvo Space is the ultimate promoter of the remote working lifestyle. It caters to freelancers, digital nomads, entrepreneurs, and small businesses alike. The space was designed to inspire creative and collaborative work. The carefully thought-out design of the amenities and the yellow-black color combo all work towards energizing the visitors’ work efforts.

Enouvo offers a wide array of packages for its members. From hot and dedicated desks to private offices and coliving arrangements, Enouvo Space will set you up with whatever you need. There is also a variety of free-to-use equipment on the premises, including recording, copying, and lighting equipment, as well as a photo studio and various Macs and PCs.

When you need to take a break, you can relax and interact with other coworkers on the sunny balcony or head to the kitchen or the indoor break room.

Coliving arrangements offer a variety of accommodation options. You can buy separate or joined coliving and coworking memberships. Enouvo coliving grants you access to the gym, BBQ rooftop, and the coffee bar.

What we didn’t like about Enouvo Space

Online coworking websites state that this space has 24-hour member access, which is not true. Many people have been unpleasantly surprised because they counted on this benefit and ended up without it. Another rather disappointing point is that the free coffee in this place is below par. If you want to get a proper cup of Joe, either pay up here or get a reliable takeaway elsewhere in Da Nang.

SpaceA — Da Nang Travelers’ Station is the best place for out-of-towners and people on the go!

Source: SpaceA — Da Nang Travelers’ Station

SpaceA — Da Nang Travelers’ Station is envisioned as the first place inbound travelers will check out in Da Nang. It offers information about Da Nang, concierge services, a coworking space, and a community for medium- and long-term travelers all in one.

This coworking space is equipped with super speedy Wi-Fi and an air conditioning system. It has a private room for phone and video calls. If you are an online teacher, you can give uninterrupted tutoring lessons without distractions in this room. However, unless you want to pay a fee for headphones and a microphone, you shouldn’t forget to bring your own.

Free parking is available on the spot. You also get a complimentary coffee upon arrival. If you opt for a three-hour stay, you are mandated to order at least one drink or dish to use the space.

There is an outdoor terrace and a chill-out area for when you need to take a break, and you can also purchase alcoholic beverages for maximum relaxation.

What visitors don’t like about SpaceA — Da Nang

Apart from the mandatory one drink or dish minimum, visitors don’t appreciate not being allowed to bring in their own food or drink. SpaceA is a lounge as well as a coworking spot, so that is against the rules.

Another complaint is that the prices are somewhat high for the service provided. Many users claim that other coffee shops and cafes in Da Nang offer even better food and drink for a fraction of the price. The management is also frequently reported as being quite rude and disrespectful towards visitors’ complaints.

IOT Coworking Space is the one that we liked the least in Da Nang!

Source: IOT SPACE

IOT Coworking Space is located in the Phan Dang Luu district in Da Nang, which is slightly away from the city center. That can be considered as a disadvantage as most of the other coworking spots in this coastal city are located in the downtown area. The commute to IOT Space takes longer and is more complicated to make for first-time visitors to Da Nang.

Although the photos of this coworking hub look promising, with beautiful ergonomic chairs, spacious desks, and wide windows, many past users report that the place has very poor hygiene and that the desks are rather dusty.

There have also been many instances of overbooking when groups who wished to occupy a private office ended up being seated in the common coworking area and disrupting hot desk coworkers with their meeting.

Considering that Da Nang has plenty to offer in terms of coworking spaces with countless raving reviews, we believe that, until IOT’s reputation improves, it is best left avoided.

Basics
Pricing
  • Per day: VND 80,000 (hot desk)

Where to stay in Da Nang, the city of bridges

Da Nang goes by several nicknames—Tourane, City of Han River, and The City of Bridges. As one of the biggest cities in Vietnam, it has gone through the process of urbanization over the years. The history of the city can be traced back to ancient times, and throughout the centuries, Da Nang has been through a lot which is reflected in the city’s landscape and culture. Da Nang plays a key role in the region of Central Vietnam, and that’s thanks to its accessible port, which is important for the economy and trade, and a number of universities.

5 best places to stay in Da Nang

There are eight districts in Da Nang – two of them are rural, whereas the remaining six are urban districts. Each of them has a number of communes. 

Here are our picks for the top 5 places to stay in Da Nang:

  1. Hải Châu 
  2. Hòa Vang 
  3. City Centre
  4. Liên Chiểu 
  5. My Khe Beach 

Where to stay in Da Nang

Best for culture vultures Hải Châu The cultural center of Da Nang filled with historical and cultural sights
Best for first-time visitors Hòa Vang The most popular tourist districts in Da Nang, home to the most iconic sights in the city 
Best long-term City Centre The most developed and urban area, as well as the business center of Da Nang 
Best budget area Liên Chiểu A quiet district filled with small cafes, local shops, and some great attractions 
Best for nightlife My Khe Beach A neighborhood lined with a number of bars and beach clubs, so it’s a great spot for partying and having fun.

Transportation in Da Nang

There are several ways of getting around the city. The cheapest way is by bus, but it is not the most convenient due to the potential long waiting period. It also takes a while to get to your destination due to the number of stops.

When it comes to taxis, there are two options – your regular, good old taxi, and Grab. Grab can be described as Vietnam’s Uber. In order to get a Grab, you need to download an app from the App Store. This option may save you a bit more money than a regular taxi. Another thing worth mentioning is that regular taxis have a meter, so you don’t have to negotiate the price and you don’t have to worry about being overcharged for your ride.

Motorcycles are the most popular mode of transportation in Da Nang. You can rent a motorcycle pretty much anywhere in the city, even at the airport. If you are feeling confident and have the skills, rent a motorcycle and explore everything Da Nang has to offer.

Where to stay in Da Nang – the culture edition: Hải Châu

Where to stay in Da Nang for the first time: Hòa Vang

A little less urban and a little more rural is the best description for this district in Da Nang. It is a bit away from the hustle and bustle of the city center. Still, it has some beautiful and mesmerizing sights definitely worth visiting.

Ba Na Hills SunWorld is an incredibly popular tourist attraction both among the local population and foreign visitors. It consists of two levels: one which contains a massive amusement park (Fantasy Park) and a French Village, and the other level with the Golden Bridge and gardens, among other things. An impressive feat of engineering and architecture, this attraction is definitely worth a visit.

Where to stay in Da Nang long term – City Center

The City Center is an ideal location for an expat wanting to live in this city. This is because it offers you easy access to transportation, shops, restaurants, bars, clubs, and all the other things we are used to having access to while living in an urban area. The City Center is also the heart of business and economy, and you can find a wide variety of properties.

Things to see and do in the City Center

Here are some ideas for places to visit or things to do:

  • Dragon Bridge
  • Hàn Market
  • Han River Bridge

Dragon Bridge

Da Nang didn’t earn the nickname “City of Bridges” for no reason. The Dragon Bridge is an impressive achievement of both engineering and design. And if having a dragon at one end of the bridge isn’t impressive enough, make sure to check out the fire and water show. This usually happens during the weekend.

Image source: ruben.anyone

Hàn Market

No foodie should miss the Hàn Market: a large indoor market where you can find everything from fresh fruits and vegetables to clothes and house products.

Image source: elusivek

Han River Bridge

Han River Bridge is yet another impressive bridge Da Nang has to offer. It lies over the Han River, and during the night it lights up with beautiful lights in different colors.
