It’s easy to see why the Catalan capital in northeastern Spain is an appealing choice for digital nomads and self-starters. Cheap metro travel, a popular bike-sharing initiative, year-round sunshine and beautiful beach on its doorstep make the city a hugely desirable destination in which to both live and work. If you’re coming to Barcelona for an extended period and would like to use a coworking space during your stay, we’ve picked out some of the best that the city hads to offer.

Coworkidea

Based near the city’s university, Coworkidea is set over two floors of office and shared workspace. On the top floor you’ll find larger teams, while on the first floor, the open coworking area is split between a hot desking zone, mainly utilised by independent, freelancers who can opt for part-time or full-time access; and fixed desks rented by small collectives, businesses or freelance regulars. Different types of membership plans are available, with prices starting at €105 per month for 10 days a month access. There are also day passes priced at €21 per day.
