The 5 coolest co-living spaces around the world

By Charlotte Deprez Published 21/09/2017

Coliving has many advantages (we even listed them here!), but one of them being that it allows you to move in and out quickly, hence travel without worrying of your lease! If you’re aiming at becoming a digital nomad, it can come in very handy. Therefore, we listed the best co-living spaces in the world right now. Ready to be location independent?

1 – The Collective

The Collective is a pioneering (huge) UK co-living space. It all started in 2012 and grew until today to become a 10-floor building hosting more than 500 people!

Where: London city center

Rent per week: the different rooms, all fully-furnished, obviously, range from €200 (+€45 charges) to €370, depending on whether you have a private kitchen, a view, etc. The usual, medium rent is €280 per week or 1260€/month. When you know that the medium rent for a simple studio in that area is above 1120€, this is a really good deal. However, keep in mind that the less you stay, the more expensive it gets per week.

Deposit: yes, €565

Services: wi-fi, a gym, room cleaning, linen changes, access to communal spaces, community events and their 24/7 on-site team

Minimum & maximum stay: 4 to 12 months


2 – Roam

Roam has the dreamiest locations all over the world at a very fair pricing and the utmost freedom when it comes to move in or out.

Where: Miami, Ubud (Bali), London, Tokyo and soon San Francisco

Rent per week: depending on the location, they go from €300 to €600 per week. Ubud is the cheapest location, London the most expensive.

Deposit: no

Services: access to all communal areas and the coworking space (open 24/7! Yay night owls!), a shared kitchen, wi-fi and laundry facilities. Depending on the location, you can also count on a pool, a media room, an event space, …

Minimum & maximum stay: 7 nights up to your entire life

Additional info: Roam has a Flex plan with which you can buy nights in bulk and then use them whenever you want!

3 – Zoku

Always wanted to live in Amsterdam and have drinks by the picturesque canals at night? You can do all of that while living and working in one of Zoku’s rooms and lofts.

Where: Amsterdam

Rent per week: the rooms range from €72 to €187 per night, and the lofts from €210 to €233, whether it’s the standard, so 24m², or the XL, 30m². A shared room per week would cost around €350.

Deposit: yes, 25% of the total amount

Services: wi-fi, television, cleaning, access to their 500m2 of common space including a bar, a living room, a living kitchen, co-working spaces, meeting rooms. Zoku also features a Treatment Room, a Game Room, a Music Corner, a Locker Room, a Launderette and guest pantries.

Minimum & maximum stay: 1 night up to your entire life

Additional info: Zoku offers rooms but also “lofts”, hence small apartments where you can both live and work. Also, Zoku is located in the same building as WeWork Amsterdam, a good news for coworkers.


4 – Sun and Co

Always dreamed of living the beach life? Sun and Co is a co-living and co-working space located by the sea and pretty close to Ibiza, just sayin’…

Where: Javea, 1 hour south from Valencia, Spain

Rent per night: from €18 to €45 depending on the length of your stay and the room type (private or shared)

Deposit: yes, 50% of the total amount

Services: wi-fi, kitchen, 200m² of common areas, cleaning service, free organic coffee and fruit. A coworking space, open 24/7 in case you’re jetlagged, with everything you need is also included. Oh and did we mention the weekly skill sharing sessions, daily activities, bike, surf and kayak rentals and the two local hosts devoted to you?

Minimum & maximum stay: 1 night up to your entire life

Additional info: Sun and Co can host up to 20 guests and is located in a 19th century historical building.


5 – Common

What differentiates Common from other coliving places? Their attention to design, and to detail. You won’t find another co-living space with that much swag!

Where: New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Washington

Rent per month: from €1.300 (Washington) to €2.300 (San Francisco)

Services: wi-fi, kitchen, weekly cleaning, laundromat and amazingly designed rooms and common spaces.

Minimum & maximum stay: 3 months up to as many as you want

Additional info: once you’re a member of Common, you have access to all four locations, which comes in handy when traveling around the US.
