Some people work best in solitude and some like conversations and exchange of ideas. Either way, Goa now has co-working spaces that let you indulge your dream of living in Goa while ensuring that you also stay on track with your deadlines. Now, whether you're moving here for a short-term project or are just tired of choppy internet and power cuts at home, these co-working spaces are a reliable option to actually get work done.
Strong Coffee & Reliable Internet: Get Work Done At These 9 Co-Working Spaces In Goa
The Old Quarter Hostel
The Old Quarter is a lovely hostel located in the charming Fontainhas area of Panjim. This hostel has a café that also doubles up as co-working space. It has good wi-fi, coffee, tea and other light refreshments, and a nice ambience that is perfect to get your creative juices flowing.
Ignite Innovation Hub
A more serious, government-run innovation hub, Ignite isn't just for start-ups but for anyone on the hunt for a quiet, no-fuss co-working space. A more serious alternative to its quirky neighbour, 91Springboard, this one's open round the clock too. In terms of facilities, you'll find a pitch room, a cafe, meeting rooms, a massive auditorium for events and even private cabins. With the choice between flexi desks and dedicated work stations, it's equally conducive to digital nomads as to small start-ups. The rates range between INR 500 a day to INR 5k a month depending on whether you opt for a fixed desk or not.
Mozaic Co Working Space
Mozaic Co Working Space at the Design Valley definitely looks like it was designed for creative professionals. As a design centre meets a co-working space, it allows a steady exchange of ideas between people from diverse fields. Creativity and functionality seamlessly integrate here. They have group spaces, outdoor seating, meeting rooms, an amphitheater, cafeteria, exhibition space and more. They do not offer day passes but you can take a trial for a day if you're looking at exploring a membership with them. They don't have flexible seating either, so people will have desks allotted to them with rates starting at INR 5,000 a month.
91Springboard is a multi-city co-working brand that set up its Goa outpost a while back. Located in Panjim, they offer the usual refreshments, wi-fi, conference room, and more. They have different plans and packages, so whether you are working solo or in a small team, this is good co-working set-up to explore. As conducive to early risers as to night owls, this office combines a chill vibe along with infrastructural support with rates starting at INR 440 for a day and going up to INR 9,000 for two-people cabins. The only downside? Parking in the area is painful to find.
Curioso Studio & Suites
These chic service apartments in Goa are more than just a place to crash at night. A lot of thought, care and passion that's gone into designing these suites has a bigger purpose - to celebrate art and artists. This is why, their studio space doubles up as a co-working with efficient wi-fi and coffee to boot. So, whether you're looking to tune out and get work done or don't mind trying your hand at an art and craft workshop, this is just the place. It also helps that it's in Siolim, giving you access to Morjim, Mandrem, Anjuna, Assagao and the likes.
Another convenient hideout for creative folks, Co.Worx is located in Siolim. It promises most of the basic co-working space facilities alongside the chance of meeting like-minded professionals who live nearby and work out of here. The AC, internet and work stations are sorted, there's tea and coffee for when you need to reboot. So, if you aren't too fussed about starting your day super early or working till late into the night, they're open from 11am to 8pm.
P.S. This place is small and can take up to 8-10 people only. So, if you're a small team, you might want to explore other options.
