Great Co-Sharing Workplaces in the Metro

If you’re a freelancer or an entrepreneur in need of a work space, you now have more accessible options besides working at home or renting a small office. These co-sharing spaces offer great day pass experience.

Co-sharing spaces or co-working spaces started becoming popular in the last few years with the escalating cost of office space rental, the proliferation of start-up companies, and the growing number of freelancers. Co-working spaces promise to offer transient and conducive work environments. It’s an upgrade from working at home in your pajamas all day or working in noisy cafés with so many distractions. These spaces have come a long way from just offering a desk and fast internet connection. Some now offer virtual offices, exclusive events, and designer coffee. It’s now more like a club for like-minded people. Here are some of the co-working spaces that we recommend if you’re looking for a temporary or personal headquarters for your start-up or freelance business.

One of the pros of working at home is that you don’t have to brave Manila traffic every single day. But working at home does have it cons. The homey ambience can be too comfortable to be a conducive place to work. A good compromise is a co-working space near your home so you won’t have to spend a lot of time and energy on the daily commute. For people in Quezon City, there’s Racket Room, which have branches in Sgt. Esguerra and Cubao. These locations are also ideal for independent TV production outfits due to its proximity to networks. Day pass starts at PhP600.
