Cebu Bulletin Top Picks: 4 Co-working Spaces in Cebu City for Freelancers and Nomads

Working from home or remotely? Need a change of scene and fast WiFi connection? Check out the top 4 co-working spaces in Cebu City.

Freelancing and living a nomad lifestyle in Cebu, especially in Cebu City, is easy and very much practicable. Most business activity is centered here, and office space is widely available in many key areas in the city. Being a hub for businesses like consulting, technology, and start-ups, the Queen City of the South is certainly an ideal place for those who want to live and work freely, as they please.

These days, with the Covid-19 pandemic still raging on, working from home or off-site is definitely the main thing. With restrictions easing up a little, the freelancing community is beginning to pick up where they left off, albeit slowly and with more caution.

That is why co-working spaces are re-opening again within the city. Co-working spaces are offices or working areas available for lease to individuals or group of people and offering amenities like WiFi, ergonomic work stations, and air-conditioned spaces conducive for working.

Why work in a co-working space?

While working from home is great, sometimes we feel the need to go out and be in a different environment. There is also the element of sociability and community that many desire.

Being productive alone can be too solitary, and it is easy to get bored or demotivated. Surrounding ourselves with fellow busy bees is a great way to boost our productivity and drive to work.

That said, here are the top 5 co-working stations in Cebu City for people who like to work alone, together:
