About 75% of the coworking spaces in Singapore have a plan for infrequent users. However, this category is ill-defined and there is a great deal of variation between the plans on offer. We sifted through all the plans that we could find online, and prioritised those that offered more hours or days per month for work, as well as those that offered meeting rooms for use. Some folks like freelance web designers and the team from the Environmental Bar Association spoke to us at length about their experiences at the spaces below. Collecting and compiling their feedback also helped us make the list below.
Here are 15 coworking spaces (in no particular order) with plans that we found particularly notable.
S$285 for 15 days (valid for 3 months) – $19 / day
Lavender / Geylang
Their plan is by far the best value. You pay for half a month (15 days), but you can claim those days over 3 months! In addition, membership hours can be used for meeting room booking, that’s awesome.
The locations are a hipster’s choice, being in Geylang where craft beer sits side by side with traditional noodles. Decor at Cowerkz is contemporary, functional. Location and value are its main draws.
S$350 / month – $11.6 / day
It is a quiet area, being a bridge away from the Lavender MRT exit. To make up for the inconvenience though, Hiredturf has one of the lowest per day rates of any space in Singapore. The work space itself is almost spartan in its simplicity. Black wooden tables on polished parquet are paired with wire-mesh chairs. The spareness of the space is made up somewhat by the availability of a pool and barbecue area.
S$160 for 7 days / month – $22.8 / day
Situated in the storey above Habitat Cafe, Top Deck is a coworking space designed with an eye for maximizing the effect of small touches. The brass fittings, muted wood tones and judicious use of black gives the space a harmonious design.
The location is out of the way, but the cost per day is on the low end and users are given 2 hours meeting room usage, which is a tidy bonus.
S$300 / month – $10 / day
A stone’s throw away from Little India is Work House. This beautiful space is handsomely furnished, and comes with a rooftop terrace for their frequent community activities.
S$500 / month – $16.7 / day
Telok Ayer / Raffles Place
Deep in Telok Ayer, the trendiest part of the CBD, is China Square, which hosts ClubCo. The space’s work and common areas are brightly lit and decorated. For this plan, you receive 1 hour’s meeting room usage, and an F&B account. The F&B account allows you to order food and drink from a store of credit that is proportional to your coworking plan. ClubCo says that for S$500 / month, you receive $500 of F&B credits (ie. 100% of the plan value). It’s crazy, and it’s the only one in town. Entrepreneurs and marketers from both within and without Singapore mingle at the brightly lit cafe common area (pictured). Visiting folks from On Media, a Toronto-based content marketing agency shared that this is their go-to spot to work when in town.
S$400 / month – $13.3 / day
At Mapletree Business City over in Pasir Panjang / Alexandra Road, Unilever has carved out a special niche for itself with LEVEL3. The enormous space has a pricy plan (but is fairly cheap on a per day basis), and offers the opportunity to connect with Unilever execs who work in and around the space. Members receive a generous 5 hours of meeting room usage.
S$200 / 10 days per month – $20 / day
Makespace is not for everyone. If you don’t like to take yourself too seriously, the anti-mainstream industrial pastel palette is an experience. At $200 per month, it is also one of the cheapest options on this list (in absolute terms, still pricy per day). The absence of a dedicated meeting room could be a dealbreaker for some.
SiTF 123 Jump Start
S$288 / month – $9.6 / day
Buona Vista / One-North
123 Jump Start is cheap both on a monthly basis and on a per-day basis. Members also get 3 hours of meeting room usage as well as 2 hours conference room usage. That is hands-down the best overall value. Jump Start is also located in the Blk 71 startup enclave at Ayer Rajah Crescent, making meetings with folks involved in startups a breeze. Despite the many pluses though, Jump Start is without doubt the most basic space on this list. It is functional and monastic. The startup equivalent of a meditation retreat.
S$240 for 40 hours / month – $48 / day
Robinson Road / Cecil Street
Collective Works is the most expensive space on this list per-day. However, it has earned its spurs. Not only are both of its locations in the heart of the CBD, the office decor is modern and tasteful. Plants hang from the walls and desk sizes are generous. Instead of credits for meeting room hours, they have a fair-use policy. If you bunch meetings in the CBD together for a few days per month, Collective Works is an excellent choice.
S$398 / month – $13.3 / day
Robinson Road / Raffles Quay
JustCo is the anti-Collective-Works in the CBD. With a high monthly fee, but a low per-day rate, they are priced to occupy the opposite end of the spectrum. Fees apply for meeting rooms. No free hours are given. Nonetheless, a beautiful space with numerous lifestyle and professional events makes JustCo attractive.
Tribe by TEC
S$350 for 10 days / month – $35 / day
Tribe is owned by serviced-office operator The Executive Centre. They are priced highly on both a total as well as per-day basis. However their expertise shines through. Like others on the high end of this list, space is ample and decor is attractive. Members receive 2 hours of meeting room usage credits, as well as limited complimentary B&W printing.
The Hub Singapore
Prinsep – S$345 for 80 hours / month – $34.5 / day
Cuppage – S$385 for 80 hours / month – $38.5 / day
The Hub Singapore’s 2 locations have slightly different pricing, but they all comfortable fall within the expensive end of both monthly and per-day metrics. Members receive 2 hours of meeting room usage, as well as The Hub as a business address. One of the oldest coworking spaces in Singapore, The Hub has a mature community as well as frequent events. This is the blue-chip small team office option.
S$200 for 1 week – $40 / day
Prinsep Street / Dhoby Ghaut
Though BIGWork is cheap monthly, it is amongst the most expensive per-day. That said, members get free meeting room usage. Prinsep street sits in the busy nexus of Bras Basah, Bugis and Dhoby Ghaut, which makes it uniquely accessible, though there is a caveat. There is some walking to be done from any of those stations. Ubers will also find it easy to access BIGWork thanks to the wide but quiet roads.
S$350 for 1 week – $70 / day
Trehaus is far and away the most expensive option on the list in terms of per-day cost. Even though members get 2 hours meeting room usage per month, it is still high. However, Trehaus does have some rare benefits such as childcare, and a prime location on Orchard Road itself.
The Working Capitol
S$300 for 10 days / month – $30 / day
Duxton / Outram
Though it is certainly on the pricy end of the list, The Working Capitol does a lot to justify its price tag. Not only does the building play host to several attractive cafes, bistros and restaurants, the space itself has regular members-only lunches and activities such as yoga classes. There is plenty to like on this corner of Keong Saik Road.
