10 Best Coliving and Coworking in Chiang Mai + Hostels, Hotels & Airbnbs

Thailand is currently amongst the most popular countries for digital nomads. So, it’s no surprise that the picturesque city of Chiang Mai sees thousands of working travelers each year. But where can you find the top accommodations for coliving and coworking in Chiang Mai?

You’ll have almost no problem finding a cozy coworking space in Chiang Mai, as there are already so many. But, if you want to stay in the city for longer than a few fleeting days, costs can add up to rent a coworking space on top of accommodation.

If you’re looking for the best places to combine your coworking space with your living area (and meet a few like-minded friends), look no further. Here are the coliving and coworking spaces in Chiang Mai.

Best Coworking & Coliving Spaces in Chiang Mai

1. Buri Siri Hotel — Best Luxury Coliving & Coworking

You don’t have to compromise comfort for a decent coworking space. Buri Siri Hotel has both — and a few other perks, too!

Set in the modern neighborhood of Nimmanhaemin in Chiang Hai, it’s no wonder this contemporary hotel follows suit. Each spacious yet private room has a TV, bathroom, dining area, and a desk to finish some last-minute tasks before bed.

Not only does Buristro Bar & Café promise a delectable fare of Eastern and Western dishes, drinks, and desserts, but it’s also a coworking space. Your new “office” has high-speed Wi-Fi, desk space, and a conference room. But there’s no fun in all work and no play, so you’ll also have access to a bright blue pool to cool down after a long day.

What we liked: You could still use the pool with your day pass.

Dorm rooms have coffee facilities, shared bathrooms, lockers, and courtesy curtains. Unfortunately, there aren’t any private rooms – which you might not mind due to their affordability.
