We are quite fortunate to live in a time that allows us to work from anywhere. A location independent lifestyle is more accessible than ever right now and coworking spaces make it even easier.
There are many types of coworking spaces. From free, communal spaces like laptop-friendly cafes, to paid spaces with office services and meeting rooms.

As a digital nomad, I like to do my research in advance and put the coworking spaces I find on a map before I travel. Here are the directories I use to find them.
Directories for Coworking Spaces
A site and an app with a free directory that lets you search by type of space and destination. It gives you the most useful information first: how fast the WiFi is and how many power outlets there are.
The information is added by users, who share their impressions of the space. It’s a very useful feature. For example, users can tell you if a laptop-friendly cafe is busy at lunchtime but quiet in the afternoon.
If you find a good place to work that isn’t listed yet, you can add it to the list of coworking spaces in that particular city. It’s called “scouting” and it’s a quick process in which you do a WiFi speed test at the space you’re at and then add some more details and your impressions.
A site listing coworking spaces in 112 countries, both paid and unpaid. It has a simple interface and is very easy to use.
The spaces are added by site team members, who review the WiFi quality, noise levels, power outlets, community feel and even the coffee… You’ll get basic details about each space, a shirt review, a map and a link to its website.
A user-friendly directory of coworking spaces around the world, created by coworkers.
You can search by country, city or coworking space name. Then you can use a variety of filters to find exactly what you need, say a dog-friendly space or one that has free drinks.
There are some interesting features in the list of filters, from 3D printers to standing desks to beanbags. You can also search for co-living spaces, female-only coworking spaces and rural escapes.
You can message coworking spaces directly via their page. Some of them offer a free day pass and some let you book a tour. You can do either very easily by clicking a button.
The spaces are rated and reviewed by site members. As a member you can post your review and rate the WiFi, comfort, amenities and community feel.
