8 Perks of Coworking as a Digital Nomad

Coworking: a tool to add to your digital nomad toolkit.

Hello digital nomads! If you're anything like me, you've probably experienced the highs and lows of remote work life; it can sometimes be a love-hate relationship, but more often than not it’s a lifestyle that’s hard to forfeit. But, while the freedom to work from anywhere is amazing, sometimes finding the perfect workspace can be a challenge. That's where coworking spaces come in. Here are eight perks to coworking as a digital nomad that might just change the way you work and travel.

Perks To Coworking

Professional Environment:

I used to love parking myself at a nice cafe and working away with a flat white to my right, and a croissant to my left, but it can be hard to find a quiet cafe with good wifi at times. Coworking offers a dedicated workspace with all the amenities you need to get stuff done. High-speed internet? Check. Comfy chairs? Check. It's like a real, home office, but without the distractions.

Networking Opportunities:

One of the coolest things about coworking spaces is the chance to meet other remote workers from around the world. I mean, who knows, maybe your next business partner or travel buddy is sitting at the desk next to you.

Community Vibes:

Working remotely can get lonely, but coworking spaces are these little hubs of productivity that also foster community. There’s nothing better than sitting in a room filled with motivated individuals, working away at their goals. The community vibe grows one step further if you choose to stay at a coliving. These are accommodations where you’ll find be able to bond with other remote workers beyond working hours.

Flexibility Galore:

Whether you need a desk for a day, or a desk for a month, coworking spaces offer flexible membership options to suit your schedule and budget. You don’t need to worry about getting locked into anything long-term, you can quite literally just drop-in as you need.

Boosted Productivity:

Let's face it, working from a hostel dorm room isn't exactly conducive to getting stuff done. Coworking spaces provide a focused environment where you can actually be productive without the distractions of the hostel life. And better yet, if you choose to stay at a coliving space, you can wake up and walk down the hall to a desk that’s there just for you!

Professional Development:

From workshops to networking events, coworking spaces often host all sorts of cool stuff to help you level up your skills and grow your business. Plus, learning from other digital nomads is way more fun and engaging than watching a YouTube tutorial alone in your Airbnb or hostel.

Awesome Amenities:

Free coffee, printing services, maybe even a ping pong table—coworking spaces usually come with a variety of perks to make your workday a little more enjoyable. Sometimes it honestly feels like you’re working in a fancy office, except you’re usually somewhere super awesome, and it lacks the stuffy corporate vibe.

Inspiration Everywhere:

Surrounding yourself with ambitious and creative individuals can do wonders for your own motivation and creativity. Coworking spaces are mini incubators for big ideas. The inspiration you need might just be a conversation away.

Why Choose Coliving

Now, you might be thinking, "But coworking spaces are expensive, aren't they?" Well, not necessarily. That's where coliving comes in. Coliving, by definition (or by OUR definition) is an accommodation meant for digital nomads because they feature a coworking space. You can find these in most countries around the world, which makes coliving an awesome option if you’re concerned about productivity dwindling while travelling abroad. The coworking spaces are included in the overall cost of your stay. It's truly a win-win situation that's perfect for the nomadic lifestyle.


So there you have it, folks. Coworking spaces aren't just for corporate drones—they're a game-changer for digital nomads looking to work and travel the world. Ready to take your digital nomad life to the next level? Find your next stay with colive values.
