It's no surprise considering Budapest has all the amenities of a modern western city, while retainer exotic charm in the form of diverse architecture and vibrant neighbourhoods and nightlife.

If you're a foreigner thinking of coming to Hungary to work on your business or as a freelancers, finding a decent coworking space will probably be quite high on your list.

Things to consider when choosing a coworking space in Budapest

The first thing to consider is location. You're probably going to want to find a space near where you live - which is probably in or close to the 5th, 6th, 7th or 13th district. Handily, that's where most of the coworking spaces happen to be.

Another consideration is size and how many people work there on a daily basis. Some people like to be surrounded by buzz while they work, while others want a more low-key peaceful environment. Again, Budapest has coworking spaces catering to both sides of the spectrum and many will happily give you a tour or even let you work there for a day for free to try it out.

Finally, take a look at the extra fees and perks. Free tea and coffee is standard, but some places offer extra treats to keep you happy. Likewise, not all coworking costs are equal - so check how many days you're entitled to work there, the opening hours and what stuff like printing and meeting room use costs.
