Top 10 Must-Haves When Looking For Topnotch Coworking Spaces In Hong Kong
Are you productive in your current coworking space setup? Perhaps you’ve been going wrong all along.
Coworking spaces are at the heart of every remote employee and freelancer alike. For them, it’s a home where the magic happens. Be it ideas, team meetings, or even brainstorming about that latest offering by the company you’ve been longing to own.
The busy streets of Hong Kong have about 3.66 million employees employed. Many of them now work remotely and seek coworking spaces to kick off their to-do lists. Productivity and flexibility are at one goal.
So here are the top 10 you should be looking for when choosing a coworking space in Hong Kong.
1. Natural light
It is more than satisfying to see the sunrise touching your skin by the window while starting to rock that keyboard in the morning to your work. Many people prefer to have natural light because it feels refreshing. If that sounds like you, these coworking spaces in Hong Kong have it all. The V-Co in CWB, especially the terrace and by the window, while overlooking adjacent buildings, encourages strokes of creativity.
Of course, no one can underestimate the Garage Society in Central. This coworking space is ideal for high-profile members of the professional service industry. Compared to the CWB, its natural light is more visible. On the other hand, The Hive in KTown also has its own perk. It is best for casual meetings and creatives because of its casual, earthy look.
2. Good coffee and other perks
Sometimes a boost of caffeine is all it takes to finish that work you’ve been procrastinating for weeks. But what’s better than being in a coworking space that serves the best coffee? In that case, you should try Garage Society in Sheung Wan, a cozy workspace that is ideal for creatives, lifestyle brands, and digital nomads to work on a collaborative project.
On top of that, we also have Patio at TST, located in the heart of the business and traveler center in Kowloon with the workspaces operated by the hotel. Patio offers a flexible workspace for all remote professionals especially for those who need to travel between the island and the rest of HK.
3. Reliable and high-speed internet
The key feature of a highly functional coworking space is a reliable and high-speed internet connection. Make your day productive by choosing a coworking space that offers this feature. Thankfully, most of the coworking spaces in Hong Kong partnered by Deskimo do just that.

5. Workspace style and design
Workspace styles and designs play an important role in productivity. Being in an aesthetically-pleasing environment with fine arts and doodles inspires creatives to think for a new design. On the other hand, being in an elegant and luxurious place helps high profiled professionals to be productive in their work. For casual meetings, you can go for an environment that gives off a feeling of fun and playfulness.
For instance, The Center Space in The Center has a design that speaks elegance and modernity. Being the highest coworking space in Hong Kong, Central is located on the 76th floor of The Center. It is ideal for board meetings and first meetings with potential clients.
Of course, we also have T.H.E Design in Shatin that offers a flexible work environment, stimulating and collaborative, to get your creative juices flowing. It is an impressive 15,000-square-foot coworking space that provides plenty of natural light, an outdoor terrace with mountain views, and top-notch amenities.
On the other hand, WeWork in Sai Ying Pun gives off a feeling of modernity and luxury combined with its stunning natural lighting. It is best for top executives and IT professionals.
Aside from picking the coworking space you like, consider its cost not just on your daily cost but also on its overall impact on your income and expenses. Some coworking spaces can be really costly, while others offer the same amenities at a lower price that doesn’t hurt your wallet.
For affordable coworking space, consider Ooosh in Cheung Sha Wan and Nexen Workshop in San Po Kong. Both of them start at 20-25 HKD per hour and offer an excellent view outside the building, provide outstanding amenities, and other perks. The variety of choice that comes at reasonable prices will satisfy the preference of any users.

Its private offices are designed with windows, private balconies, and noise-reduced walls to create a comfortable and spacious working environment.
