What is co-living and why you should give it a try

More and more people manage to escape the 9 to 5 office job and use their skills and knowledge to work remotely or to start their own business. Most creatives and young professionals take advantage of the freedom that being location independent brings and decide to travel the world. This gave birth to the term digital nomad, an increasingly popular lifestyle adopted by young talented individuals with a thirst for freedom and adventure.

Sounds like a dream, right? Maybe you are already living it. In this case you know, that as with everything, there are advantages and disadvantages.

Yes, you are free, you do what you like and you can work whenever you want, wherever you want. But sometimes you get so lonely, that you start missing having coworkers and office gossips. Then you remember how horrible it was to commute every day, sit in a cubicle for 8 hours, follow useless rules and you’re like: nah, this ain’t that bad. But still, it would be nice to have someone work, discuss and exchange ideas with. Hostels are good to meet people, but not the best environment to get some work done. And you cannot always sit in the same cafe for hours.

The second disadvantage is the price. Yes, it’s great to travel from city to city, from country to country, but paying for hostels and hotels can get expensive, especially if you are in the beginning of your carrier. It’s not always easy to rent an apartment for short term abroad. Most of the time it’s really expensive to rent alone and you can never know how are your flatmates going to be.

This is exactly why co-living and co-working spaces became so popular lately. The goal is to connect like-minded location-independent creatives and professionals by accommodating them in the same house for a certain period of time. This way you are not only traveling and getting your work done, but you are also living together and connecting with fellow digital nomads. This way you are sure that you are living with people who share the same lifestyle, interests, ideals and passions. Also, it’s a great opportunity to network, exchange ideas and get some inspiration. No matter if it comes to living together, working, having a conversation, discovering the local culture, taking parts in events, workshops, activities, you know that you will always have a great time and conversation with these people.

While co-living spaces share the same vision, values and goals, the services differ from company to company, according to budget and preferences. ColivingHub is right for you if:
