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.

For casual meetings, you can go for an environment that gives off a feeling of fun and playfulness.
