What are the best qualities of your favorite co-working space?


by @chase_buckner | 6yr  | 9 comments

Hi guys, weโ€™re starting a co-working space in Sayulita, Mexico and are wondering what your favorite qualities of the best co-working spaces are that youโ€™ve visited.

A social atmosphere is very important. This starts with the founders. If the founders are there to meet and introduce each member of the co-working space, and make an effort get to know each member, this will foster a similar atmosphere across the co-working space. Also creating events that encourage organic social interaction is huge. Working conditions are also very important for a co-working space but social atmosphere is what makes one special.

For me 24/7 access(with your own key) is an important feature. If you work across timezones, then entering the space at 9 oโ€™clock in the morning may be way too late and same with access requirements during weekends.

It should be an environment where my things are very safe. If I walk out of the room for a minute I donโ€™t want to be worried that my laptop is gone when I come back.

Fostering community is one of the best things a co-working space can do, in my opinion. Providing opportunities for people to hang out, socialize, and get to know each other is highly important. Game nights, dinners out together, pub nights, yoga/workout sessions, weekend outings, etc.

Also, providing food, either cooked on site or brought in from a nearby restaurant/food stand. Iโ€™ll happily pay to eat lunch and breakfast at the co-working space most days. Helps me get in a rhythm and stay more productive.

Thanks for the feedback Nick! We have an opportunity to put a nice open-air lounge on the roof of our space (even has an ocean view!), which should be nice for hosting get togethers outside of โ€œworkโ€ hours.

The food idea is interesting - in your experience, how does that usually work? Does the co-working space order a bunch of food and then charge individually for whatever you want, or does the co-working space say "hey weโ€™re ordering food - who wants what?

Sounds like a great space!

As far as food, I donโ€™t think a la carte ordering is the most viable option for most new co-working spaces. It takes more money and management up front. Set meal options are great though, and I think every co-working space can offer them.

For exampleโ€ฆ the co-working space Iโ€™m at right now offers a set lunch every day. In this case, itโ€™s cooked on site, but if you donโ€™t have a kitchen, you could easily order from a restaurant or street cart. People are required to โ€œsign upโ€ for lunch prior to 11am so the right amount of food can be made.

Lunch happens at the same time every day, and itโ€™s been a great opportunity to socialize with folks at the co-working space and quickly develop deeper relationships.

Agreed about food. My favorite co-working spaces have a cafe/restaurant on-site or next door, with high-quality coffee and healthy (paleo-ish) food. Iโ€™d rather go to a cafe with those things instead of a co-working space without them.

There are several spaces in Berlin which have a full cafe area in front, which doubles as the drop-in space, and then reserved desk space in the back, requiring membership.

The other thing I look for is variety in seating options. I like to switch between standing desk, regular seated table, and lounge chair.

Thanks for the feedback Thomas! Unfortunately, we donโ€™t have the space/capital to launch with a cafe/restaurant in-house, but I think we could start something like what Nick suggested and take food orders to be delivered at a set time. We have tons of great local restaurants all around us.

Our major priority is going to be opening up the roof space as our landlord has promised to create access for us. I think an open-air space away from the more quiet work area will be key for us as far as starting up a food program.

I like the idea of multiple types of seating. Our plan is to build a high-top, bar-height table in our drop-in space so that you can either sit in a stool or stand and work. Weโ€™ll also have some couch seating for those who want to lounge.

It doesnt have to be you providing the food! Perhaps there is a nextdoor/nearby restaurant that can add a few healthy, high-quality food and drink items to their menu under your guidance?

I really like the open-air space idea. I love working outside!

Anybody bring their car to Mexico instead of flying?


in Mexico by @digitaldiva | 1d 1 day ago | 3 comments

Iโ€™m curious whether anyone drove to Mexico instead of flying and used their car down there. Iโ€™ve heard bad stories of people driving down there but not sure I believe them. How safe is it to drive through rural areas, and to park in cities? It would be cool to have the car to explore while there.

Are restaurants, cafes and malls working in Mexico City taking into account COVID situation?

I am planning to travel to Mexico City next weekend and stay for 7-10 days there. I wonder if cafes, stores and other places like these work? And if cafes work, do they work as usual or only for take away&delivery? Will be very thankful if someone can help here.

Which EU country doesn't charge social security for freelancers


in Luxembourg by @colin_o_keeffe | 3d 2 days ago | 1 comment

As far as I'm aware Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium charge both sides (employee and employer) of the statutory social security pension if you are a freelancer. Are there countries that don't make this a requirement? It is crippling having to pay out upwards of 19% of your income into a state pension.

Where do I get good legal advice/support to have a long-term stay in Portugal?


in Lisbon, Portugal by @mzorrilla | 1mo 1 month ago | 4 comments

Hello, everyone!

My idea is to stay as low as 6 months and as long as a year (maybe, who knows) over Lisbon after doing some analysis from many cities in Europe.

I'm an Argentinian and Chilean (both nationalities) so... no Euro-pass for me (getting my Italian nationality could take 2 years easily). I'm also a remote worker and I have a really good income (I work for a Silicon Valley company) so I can show more than enough resources to stay in the country.

Everything I see online doesn't inspire me much confidence (most sites looks a bit scammy) and this is not a "vacation stay"... I want to be clear my head far away from Argentina right now. If someone has a good website, recommendations, etc I will super appreciate.

Thanks in advance!

How do I get Travel/Medical Insurance for Portugal for visa application from Australia?


in Portugal by @jonathanpoh | 1mo 1 month ago | 5 comments

I'm preparing my Portuguese D7 long-term visa application and one of the required documents is proof of travel insurance with medical coverage. However, as an Australian citizen, if put that as my country of residence in many travel insurance companies' quick quote forms, I'm unable to get ANY insurance coverage at all because of the current travel ban out of Australia, and the Australian govt's 'Do Not Travel' advice to ALL countries. I know that Aussies are applying for, and successfully getting visas from the Portuguese Consulate here, so where and how are they fulfilling this insurance requirement if insurers aren't selling any coverage? Does anybody know or have any ideas?

Co-working space in Shanghai WITHOUT monthly payment

Daily/hourly pass needed.
Canโ€™t work in normal cafรฉ because having clientโ€™s laptop for security reasons, canโ€™t use open networks. Working for R&D. Also laptop is so huge it doesnโ€™t fit normal cafe environment because itโ€™s far from discreet.

Favorite towns in Mexico (and near it)?


in Mexico by @azurio | 3yr 3 years ago | 5 comments

Hey guys!

We love Mexico. Weโ€™re excited to find outstanding towns to live in for 2-12 months at a time. Weโ€™re also open to Central American gems.

We especially appreciate learning about those smaller towns that are lesser known but amazing. Personal favorites!

Here are some of our interests:

  • a paradise vibe: ocean, lush greenery, vibrant arts, and/or old town charm
  • at least 3 Mbps download speed
  • great cost of living
  • considerable expat and retiree crowd
  • not too much of an urban city โ€” though a smaller town outside a city can work
  • a bit touristy is okay

Here are lesser-discussed towns that caught our eye โ€” weโ€™d love impressions of these and more that come to mind:

  • Huatulco
  • Ixtapa
  • Guanajuato
  • And more?

Thanks so much, guys!

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


by @gnefkow | 4yr 4 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).

How do you manage noise when working in public space?


by @littleshiva | 4yr 4 years ago | 15 comments

Iโ€™m an introvert: people distract and exhaust me, and my ideal working environment would be an empty room and silence. Next best is what I have whenever Iโ€™m in my own environment: the space is never empty, but itโ€™s usually silent save for ambient noise. Working from public space involves dealing with noise levels that are, for me, entirely counterproductive. Right now Iโ€™m in a hotel lounge and was settling in to focus on a magazine layout job when all of a sudden they switched the music to something loud, upbeat and with lyrics. I put my earplugs in immediately, but I can still hear that crap, and my concentrationโ€™s shot. What do you all do to manage noise when working from public space, or what are your workarounds?

In my case right now, Iโ€™m here because I need several hours of electricity, not just the two hours max I could get at my off-grid location. My noise workaround is to come to town and recharge my laptop, then go back to the country to work, but for long amounts of time, thatโ€™s not an option for me (yet โ€” but Iโ€™m working on it).

Are you satisfied with the co-working space environment in Budapest / Hungary?


in Budapest, Hungary by @zoltanradics | 5yr 4 years ago | 4 comments

We are a group of freelancers working from home in Budapest and we are thinking about to open our own co-working space in the city. From freelancers to freelancers. Not in the hearth of the city (out of noise) but 10 minutes from the centre on the main tramline. (No. 4-6.) Friendly mood, 24/7 open, only environmental friendly solutions, good coffee, healthy food, sandwiches, snacks and beverages, proper price. Opinions?!

Any co-working/working space in Mexico?


in Mexico by @zanqu | 5yr 4 years ago | 6 comments

Hi all,
I was reviewing posts from last year about certain cities in Mexico (PV, PDC), so Iโ€™m hoping to expand a little. It also appears that there were struggles with internet speed. I will require fast/reliable internet to work - webinars (GTM), demos, software testing, etc.

Best cities/location:

  1. Co-working/working
  2. If no co-working spaces, Airbnb suggestions with reliable internet
  3. Any improvement in internet speeds youโ€™ve noticed since last year (where ever you were)?

Any other suggestions are welcome.
