Any coworking spaces in Colombo, Sri Lanka


in Colombo, Sri Lanka by @borowis | 5yr  | 4 comments

Hi there!

Iโ€™m staying in Weligama on the coast for a month in a rented house, but I need to spend one day in Colombo because my flight is at night. So, do you know any good place to hang out and work? Maybe a nice coffee shop or a coworking place? I also have my family with me, so if they have some cool attraction nearby (say, park or playground) to spend time at that would add points.

I was only passing through Colombo on my way to the South and it looked to me like a hectic place, so if anyone has firsthand experience that would be awesome.

Kind regards,
Borys

Hi Sorry, I have no tips for you about Colombo. I think there are not many DMs yet in Sri Lanka.

Iโ€™m considering going there as well. So I wonder if you can recommend the place you have stayed at the cost for Digital Nomads? How is infrastructure, supermarkets, restaurants?

Thanks
Philippe

So : ) I stayed in Pelana a bit out of Weligama the town right on the beach. Cities in Sri Lanka are usually noisy, crowded, full of markets and folks selling various stuff on every step (except some tourist only areas in Colombo, Galle fort etc.) So I wouldnโ€™t recommend staying in town, and also close to main roads / railways โ€“ itโ€™s a pain. Thereโ€™s traffic all the time during the day.

I do not recommend booking through the internet as prices are 5 - 10 times higher than if you hit the road and haggle with the hosts. I got my place for like 100 000 LKR for the month which I consider super expensive for Sri Lanka. But location was good for me, it was right on the beach and the host was a very nice guy : ) But Iโ€™ve seen decent options for about 2000 LKR for night (for a monthly rent).

Restaurants were good at nearby resorts, also in Weligama there were couple of European options. I mean like in every place where there are some tourists you can find a nice restaurant / bar. They are not expensive, even the most high end rarely charge more than 10$ pp. If you go to where locals go you can get stuffed for like 3$. Given you can eat very spicy rice and curry :slight_smile:

There was a market in Weligama and a supermarket. Folks at the market name different prices for locals and tourists (there were no prices listed :)), so it was often cheaper to buy stuff at the supermarket (Cargills Food City). We travelled a lot by buses: very cheap, run often during the day. But you will be offered a tuk tuk on every corner :slight_smile:

Internet: I experienced good 3g coverage on dialog throughout the country, upload speeds were bad though at Weligama (< 1 Mbps up, 3 Mbps down). Itโ€™s better in the cities. If you rent a place verify that they have WiFi they claim they do :slight_smile: Dialog has very limited 4g offering on band 3 now in major cities (make sure you get 4g capable sim card), but it also has a fixed LTE network available for locals, so it would be good option to rent a place that has the router for it).

Now, the bad part were power outages. They were not super frequent, maybe 3 a week for 1 - 2 hours and cell towers were working, so it was not as bad as it might have been.

Hope that clarifies stuff a bit, let me know if any questions.

Do you prefer co-living spaces or hostels or Airbnbs?


by @davda1546 | 2mo 2 months ago | 5 comments

We are hoping to become nomads soon and have booked an AirBnB in September in Goa for our first destination. We are considering what would be the best option for accommodation after that. We are trying to decide between co-living spaces, hostels, or Airbnbs.

What are your experiences of accommodation in terms of the following: reliable wifi, social aspect, pricing, cleanliness, cooking facilities?

Has anyone created a list of co-living spaces around the world?


by @keegansard | 7mo 6 months ago | 4 comments

Iโ€™m a big believer in co-living but Iโ€™m finding hard to find all the options available in different cities.

I have found the major players like Roam, The Collective, and WeLive but havenโ€™t found many others.

Has anyone seen a list or should I start making one?

Is there any good and safe coworking space with fast internet in Costa Rica?

Everything is in the title.

Iโ€™m working on a big project so I will need fast internet (>15 mbps).
If itโ€™s close to the beach, it would be even better.

Would you recommend โ€œWork Zoneโ€ http://www.oficinasplaya.com over Nest?
Do you have other coworking spaces there you would recommend?

And where is a good place to stay (i.e. coliving)?

Foreigner owned Coworking business in Malaysia


in Malaysia by @newyam | 2yr 1 year ago | 0 comments

Heyo folks! The idea to open up an own coworking space in Malaysia has been on my mind for quite a while and I would like to reach out on foreigners being a business owner/co working space owner in Malaysia, there are a lot of questions that would follow up but most importantly is to reach out to someone with experience.

Ideally would be someone who runs a coworking space in Malaysia, second best would be to just come in touch with a foreign business owner in Malaysia.
Cheers

Best coworking space in Medellin?


in Medellรญn, Colombia by @adele | 2yr 2 years ago | 6 comments

Hi there,

Iโ€™m considering a month or two in Medellin and wondered what the co-working space options are like. I want something more than a cafe, so happy to pay the going rate. I spent a couple of months at Hubud in Bali earlier this year and loved it, but realise that Iโ€™ve set the bar pretty high.

Has anyone used Epicenter? I read somewhere it is pretty busy. Any other options?

Suggestions much appreciated.

Which coworking spaces are open 24/7?


by @yako | 3yr 2 years ago | 13 comments

Does anyone know of any coworking space open 24hs somewhere around the world? Sometimes because of my line of work I need to be awake when everyone is sleeping on the country I am in (but I know I am not the only one!). It would be amazing to share that time at a coworking space with others who like to work at night or who have to be awake. Does anyone know of any coworking space open 24hs somewhere in the world?

Bring external monitor to SE asia and avoid coworking cost?


by @anderkd | 3yr 3 years ago | 13 comments

Would it be advisable or wacky to lug an external monitor from the US in hopes of avoiding coworking costs by working from Airbnb with decent wifi? Iโ€™m not sold on coworking spaces, and like the solitude of coding away in my own little airbnb space. One screen is limiting to productivity, hence the love of an external monitor. Thoughts?

Hi everybody,
We are at the beginning of a very interesting journey to eventually establish work spaces and accommodation in Panama.
But before we start, weโ€™d love to figure out how Panama is perceived by you, US time zone and currency are any advantages ? Would you prefer more urbanic or beachfront locations ?
All feedback will be highly appreciated.

Search/review site for Co-Working spaces around the world?


by @gnefkow | 4yr 3 years ago | 7 comments

Hostelworld for hostels,
Nomadlist for general locations,
Yelp for food (among other things)
Trip Advisor for activitiesโ€ฆ

Is there a website where a community of people can rate and review co-working spaces around the world? Iโ€™m in a nice place right now, and about to start on toward the next destination, Iโ€™d love to review the coworking space Iโ€™m currently sitting in and start planning for the next stop.

I know that there are some threads around here about it, but Iโ€™d love to search โ€œTaipeiโ€ and see a list of them with reviews from actual nomads (rather than the hap-hazard websites the coworking spaces make about themselves).
