The Best Coworking Spaces in the Philippines

Last Updated on – Sep 9, 2021 @ 12:24 pm

As a full-time freelancer, I like working in coffee shops every once in a while.

Sometimes, you just have to break the monotonous routine of working at home.

And if you have kids at home (we have a toddler and a newborn), getting a break from all the chaos of playing with and taking care of the little rascals is a godsend.

More importantly, working in a conducive environment helps bring out our best work and boost our productivity to the roof.

Coffee shops used to be the remote worker’s (think freelancers, homebased peeps, etc.,) go-to-spot when working outside—however—it can be a hit or miss.

Sometimes you find a true gem of a place complete with all the creature comforts and faster-than-lightning internet.

But these places tend to get packed quickly and you’re back to Google typing “best coffee shops near me” in no time.

So what’s the best place for people like me who wish to work outside and get topnotch working experience?

Answer: Co-working spaces.

What is a co-working space?

The web defines “coworking” as, “The use of an office or other working environments by people who are self-employed or working for different employers, typically so as to share equipment, ideas, and knowledge”

In other words: A place you share with others to get your work done.

How does it work?

If you ever tried renting a desktop computer in your friendly neighborhood computer shop, it’s essentially the same concept.

But instead of hurling projectiles at each other in DOTA 2 (or whichever online game is hot these days) or casually surfing the web, you go to a coworking space to work.

You treat it as your own little corner space to get things done.

And most shared workspaces I’ve seen (and read about) are packed with all the stuff that people like me absolutely want.

What kinds of stuff, you ask?

How about unlimited coffee, for starters?

Add in uber-fast wifi, comfy seats and desks, superb overall ambiance, and better-than-average amenities and you get the perfect working setup that beats regular office cubicles by a long shot.

Some high-end shared office spaces feature beer taps, recreational and multimedia rooms, and even a gym!

It’s like everything you can dream of in a perfect coffee shop and more—minus all its cons (seats aren’t guaranteed, potential excessive noise, the staff sometimes gives you awkward looks if you’ve been hanging out for some time).

Aside from that, the networking potential you’ll have (since you’ll be in a social setting with other people) opens up a ton of possibilities for your work. Perhaps you can snag a new client, get referred by others, meet other freelancers, etc.,

How Coworking spaces started

Its roots go back to the 90’s (the term for it then was “hackerspace”) and essentially operated under the same principles.

Fast-forward to 2005, the first official “co-working space” was launched in San Francisco by a programmer named Brad Neuberg. He found business centers “unsocial” and thought that home offices fell into the trap of negative productivity (perhaps he too found that there were too many distractions at home).

The Hat Factory is considered to be the first dedicated co-working space (co-founded by Neuberg along with 2 others) and the next few years saw the tech industry adopt coworking spaces both in the US and European countries.

Today, WeWork is the largest coworking company based in the US that provides shared workspaces across the globe.

In fact, they recently opened a 4000-sqm facility in Taguig, opening its doors to freelancers, entrepreneurs, start-ups, small and large businesses. A second Philippine branch will open in Makati.

In the last few years, there has been an increase in the number of coworking spaces popping up all across the Philippines.

State of Coworking Spaces in the Philippines

In 2017, Colliers International projected a 10% growth in the coworking space market in the Philippines. Their report, “Mining Millennials: Finding Gold in Co-working Spaces”, found the increasing number of freelancers and online professionals as the main reason for the rise of coworking spaces.

The report identified coworking spaces as the third type of “flexible offices”, along with Serviced Offices and Hosted Service Providers (BPO). While it takes the smallest share, there has been a rapid increase in the number of coworking spaces being opened every year (61% annually per this report).

Why should you work in a coworking space?

Drawing from personal experience, I’d say the number one reason is that it provides freelancers and other professionals a conducive place to concentrate and really focus on their work.

While some might say that working at home is better since it requires zero costs and no time is wasted commuting, they’re being oblivious to the fact that there are more distractions at home. And more distractions almost always guarantees a dip in productivity.

Startups and companies which can run most of their processes remotely will also find great benefit in the “per-use” nature of coworking spaces. They can opt to use it occasionally only and save a ton in operating expenses.

People also use coworking spaces to conduct business meetings, do presentations, client meet-ups, and all sorts of activities that benefit from a more professional setting.

Who works in coworking spaces?

Everyone can visit a coworking space. But the people you’ll find hanging out here most often are:

  • Freelancers

Full-time, part-time, work-from-home, remote worker—basically all types of freelancers from various fields and niches work here.

  • Startups

Up and coming companies who need a place to run and bootstrap their operations.

  • Entrepreneurs

Solopreneurs, internet business owners, and the like.

Coworking spaces make a great place to meet and discuss business with clients.

  • Remote teams

Coworking spaces provide a venue for teams to huddle and set goals and have meetings to ensure

  • Professionals

Perfect for making presentations or pitches, conduct meetings, etc.,

  • Students

Review, write your thesis, do your homework—this place can be perfect for school work.

What to look for in a coworking space?

Not all coworking spaces were created equal. Some will be fancier. Others, too basic. However, there are a couple of essentials that you should always look out for when checking out a new place. Here’s a quick checklist:

  • Safety and security – Check if it’s around a safe area and if the premises look secured and have proper security personnel.
  • Maintenance – Refers to both technical support (for the wifi and other similar connections) and janitorial duties (for keeping the area clean and well-maintained)
  • Wifi speed – Most will have faster-than-average speeds. Connections should at the very least be 50 Mbps if not higher.
  • Rooms and desks – How do the conference rooms fare in terms of space and comfort? What about the quality of desks and chairs? You’d want to work somewhere really comfy for long hours of work.
  • Overall ambiance – A vital component of a winning coworking space. It’s actually one of the first few things that will draw customers towards the place.
  • Printer and stationery services – Nice to have especially if you need to print hard copies of documents and other paperwork
  • Cafeteria and Pantry – A well-stocked cafeteria complete with a wide selection of beverages and snacks (and meals) is ideal.
  • Parking – It would be nice to have plenty of spaces for customer vehicles. In fact, it could be a deal-breaker for some.
  • Accessibility – Is the place easy to reach? Is it near your location?
  • Back-up power – A guaranteed source of power is ideal and ensures your work won’t get interrupted by power failures
  • Ventilation systems and heating – Is the AC too cold or weak? How’s the overall airflow and temperature of the place?
  • Network signal and strength – It would be sad to turn away from an otherwise great coworking space simply because your mobile phone’s signal is weak. Still, one thing that you should check out.
  • Storage facilities – Do they have lockers or other storage facilities for keeping your valuables? If you’ll be staying for long hours, you’ll probably bring more than the usual amount of stuff so this one’s good to have.
  • Restrooms – Are they clean and well maintained? Are they stocked with the essentials?
  • Overall service – Are the personnel working at the place pleasant and warm to its customers?

Benefits of working in a Coworking space

  • Boosts productivity and creativity
  • Saves on operational costs
  • Great ambiance that is primed for working
  • Flexible
  • Great for building new connections and networks
  • Great for finding new talent
  • Perfect for impromptu meetings and other corporate events
  • Awesome study place for students too

Things to consider when looking for a coworking space

Each of us has our own preferences when it comes to our working environment. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind when checking out a new coworking space.

  • Community

Does the place provide some kind of “community vibe”? If it does, then that can be a great sign. Unless of course you’re a soloist type and don’t really care for that type of stuff. Still, it’s one thing to consider as having a solid community of like-minded individuals can help in boosting your creativity and opens up a lot of opportunities.

  • Pricing

Be mindful of costs. Check out their plans and packages and see if it fits your budget. Aim for a nice balance between price and features. Look for your “must-haves” and try to look for a place that gives you those features without breaking the bank.

  • Atmosphere

How does the place feel overall? When you first saw it, did you get the feeling of excitement of wanting to work there ASAP? Ultimately, the place’s working atmosphere determines if it’s an ideal place to consider or not.

Coworking space pros and cons

Advantages of coworking spacesDisadvantages of coworking spaces
Great for productivityCan be pricey
Excellent for networking potentialYou’ll have strangers working around you (lack of privacy)
Saves on operational costs (for business owners and companies)Some in-house events might be distracting
Community supportCan get crowded and feel too busy

Types of Desks in Coworking Spaces

The actual spot you’ll occupy and work on in coworking spaces are called “desks”. There are 3 types:

  • Hot Desk

Refers to stations or spaces that are available currently (for walk-in customers, for example)

  • Fixed Desk

A desk that you exclusively “own” per your designated time slot.

  • Cabin or Private Office

A dedicated room or space for teams, like a typical office suite

Coworking space pricing

How much should I expect to pay?

Expect to pay anywhere from Php 5,000 and up monthly for a “hot desk”. Fixed or dedicated desks cost more due to exclusivity, adding a few thousand pesos on top of the hot desk price. Private offices rates will vary widely depending on the place, so best to call the place directly for a quote.

Typical one-day pricing for hot desks starts at around Php 350-550 and more, depending on how premium the coworking space is.
