Coworking Space in Seoul: Hive Arena
Best for: digital nomads, who look for informal coworking atmosphere
Amenities: Printer, Kitchen, Monitors
Hive Arena is not your typical coworking space. Located in a residential area in a two-story house, Hive Arena values community in coworking over other elements. It offers not just a coworking facility, but a shared house option.
It is beloved by many foreign digital nomads, who can develop from any location, but chose to visit countries around the world, while working on their project.
Before joining, owners of the place have an interview with you to learn more about your project. After that, you can pay either monthly or per day.
- Strong community spirit: Developing can be a lonely road to walk. Hive Arena aims to ease that aspect of your life. The community is small but very strong. Members here go for lunch and dinner together. Owners look for cool new places in Seoul to show to members.
- Foreigner friendly: Korean and western cultures can differ a lot. A lot of Korean coworking spaces are not that different from offices. Korean startups aim to get big very fast and getting a small office in the business center is a crucial step. This place, however, shies away from that lifestyle and appreciates the slower pace of things and the people around you.
- Not for everyone: If you are young and hungry for success you won’t like this place. This is not a place for business meetings and you won’t find a venture capital here.
If you are a digital nomad, who wants to visit Seoul and South Korea, this place is meant for you. Here you will find it has a cozy and home-like atmosphere with a coworking area combined with a community of friendly and ready to help people.
Also, Hive Arena has a mascot – the cutest dog named Adji. This little friendly girl will be the best stress relief you will ever find in any other coworking space in Seoul.
