Digital Nomad Hub: The Best Coworking Spaces in Bangkok
Bangkok has coworking spaces to suit every taste. The Thai capital naturally attracts workers from around the world and does all that it can to cater to them.
Bangkok is noisy. It’s busy and overcrowded. It can be something of an assault on the senses. It’s no surprise that when you want to get some work done you might think that concentrating is going to be tough. This is where coworking spaces in Bangkok come into play.
Depending on what style you’d like you’re bound to find your own little oasis in this wild town. Fancy a café vibe? There’s a space for that. Looking for a more formal office? Bangkok has you covered. Maybe you’d prefer working in cafes in Bangkok. That’s alright too, but coworking spaces have their own benefits as well! Read on through this list to see which place will best suit you and your work. We’re sure you’ll find somewhere to get that to-do list completed.
Back in 2012, when the coworking movement was starting to take off, Hubba opened its doors. Hubba is a co-working space that feels different to traditional office style spaces. This feels like you’ve been invited into a friend’s house for a quick spot of work. A friend who lets you and many others use their decent Wi-Fi and kitchen!
Set in a Thai style villa within the Ekkamai area of the city, you’ll find it easy to relax and concentrate thanks to a light environment and comfortable office style chairs (or even standing desks if you’re so inclined). Need a break? The garden is the perfect antidote to a frazzled brain. When it comes to eating there’s no on-site café (there is free coffee!) but there is a small kitchen so that you can prepare your own lunch. The glass house in the backyard isn’t always available but it’s by far the coolest place to work in Bangkok.
Cost: 299 baht daily or 2990 baht monthly.
Opening Times: 09:00 to 22:00 daily.
Location: 19 Soi Ekkamai 4, Sukhumvit 63 Road, Phra khanong Nua, Bangkok 10110
Less than 10 minutes walk from Surasak BTS station, this space is incredibly convenient to public transportation links. It’s a light, airy space which even has a neat artificial lawn inside. Turn up on any day and you’ll see digital nomads, start-ups and entrepreneurs sharing the space, as well as sharing ideas.
Need a break from typing? The relaxation area is for you. Game consoles, comfy sofas, ping pong and bean bags will take your mind off the job. For when you’re feeling hungry the well-stocked Roast Coffee and Eatery attached to the co-working space has simple food and sandwiches. Don’t forget you’re in Bangkok though, there’s food on every corner.

Set perfectly within spitting distance of Sala Daeng BTS, you won’t have to work hard to get to this one. The space is nestled in an old shophouse over 3 floors but isn’t exclusively for coworkers, there’s also a gym and an escape room game centre.
You’ll have a choice of individual hot desks or small office spaces for when you’re working in a team or meeting clients. Outside of these, the more communal areas are perfect for networking and brainstorming with others. Looking to hold an event? The 6th floor has a huge meeting room, a roof terrace and a bar!
