Coworking Barcelona Internship Abroad

Need a place to work during your internship in Barcelona?

This blog is useful for you when you need a place to work during your internship in Barcelona. For example, to arrange personal matters such as job applications or school matters such as writing an internship report or a thesis. In this blog you can read what a coworking space is, our recommendations regarding coworking spaces in Barcelona, other (free) workplaces in the city and their advantages.

What is coworking?

Coworking is working in a shared working environment with like-minded entrepreneurs/students. In the coworking community you share knowledge and skills with each other, there is an opportunity for networking and you can even set up collaborations. As a student, you don't want to spend all day in your room. As part of the coworking community, you are automatically invited to social and informal events. Think of interesting workshops or (local) excursions.

Public workplaces

Federal Café
This café is definitely one of the favourite places to have brunch in Barcelona. For many, Federal is the best place to study and work because of its spacious interior, natural daylight and fast Wi-Fi. Numerous small and large tables with power outlets welcome workers to this cool café. Federal Café's menu includes traditional brunch and breakfast favourites.

Coco Coffice Café
Within walking distance of Federal, Coco Coffice is located in Sant Antoní. Upon entering, your eye is immediately drawn to the bright and trendy interior. This quirky establishment combines coffee and office work (which explains the name) in a new co-working concept, where employees pay for the time they spend there. Sounds like any normal co-working space, but the unique thing about visiting Coco Coffice is that you also get to use the kitchen facilities. These are not standard facilities, as there is a variety of tea, coffee, fruit and snacks; all ingredients that make you feel at home right away. There is also a small meeting room available, as well as a mini boutique with books and magazines. Rates range from €3 per hour and there are various flexible offers for your work and study needs. Already convinced?

Barceloneta beach
What could be more delightful than writing your thesis or internship report while enjoying the lovely weather and fantastic sea views from the beach? This is all possible at Barceloneta beach because of the possibility to use free WIFI!

Is it better for me to choose a coworking space or another workplace?

That depends on your own needs, of course. The main advantage of coworking over working from home is that you make the most of the shared benefits. You are part of a group of people, each with his/her own specialist knowledge and with a broad network. Other coworkers can hold up a mirror to you about your idea or thesis but they can also give you advice or tips. Coworking leads to proven better results than working at home. 

If you are more productive when you can work independently and facilities such as fast Wi-Fi and good chairs are less important, then a coffee shop might be a better solution for you! 

If there are any questions about finding a workplace or the discounts, please let us know! Good luck with your Barcelona internship!
