How to Book a Coliving Space
How to Compare Coliving Spaces
Compare coliving listings like a pro with these five tips
TIP #1: Rooms can be either shared or private.
Shared rooms can have beds, bunks, or even pods. Make sure you know how many people you’re sharing the room, if it’s mixed/co-ed or same-sex, and if it has a bathroom in-suite (in the room).
TIP #2: Rooms are furnished.
Ask questions to determine the quality of the furniture and layout of the room (if not described in listing or showing in the photos). For the bed ask about the size (twin, twin XL, full, or queen), firmness of the mattress (soft to firm), thread count of the pillows and fabric of the sheets. Also, ask if they’re included or an extra charge and if you’re allowed to bring your own.
TIP #3: Utilities are included.
Ask about the WiFi speed, if the TV has a cable plan or streaming services, what the AC temperature is generally set at.
TIP #4: Properties may have extra features and amenities.
A rooftop or backyard patio or stunning view as pluses. Also a gym and washer/dryer on-site. A co-working space is typically included but make sure it’s more than just working from the kitchen table.
TIP #5: Know who you’ll be sharing the space with.
Ask if you can meet the roommates before accepting an offer. Look for interests you have in common. Ask about the occupancy (max and current number of residents). Ask if there’s any other uses of the property. This is important because some co-living spaces operate multiple businesses out of the same location. Coliving is becoming more commonly combined with a co-working space (open to public), retail such as a bar or restaurant, and a hostel or Airbnb for short-term lodging for travelers visiting the city.
