Yes we have meeting rooms! Message us for details.

A community for people that prefer to work together than to work alone. We are about creating a better place to work and as a result, a better way to work.

Our vision is a community of entrepreneurs, freelancers and digital nomads that share a large office to network, learn and share while being in an amazing mountain resort. We are around 35-60 nomadic members on average in Bansko, so there are plenty of opportunities to connect with other members.

In addition to the vibrant commuity at the coworking space, Bansko has several benefits for nomads and location independent entrepreneurs:
- It is one of the prime ski resorts in Eastern Europe, but also an amazing place in the summer for hiking, mountain biking and mountains.
- Sofia airport is about 160 km away with lots of low cost airlines, also Thessaloniki or Kavala are in easy driving distance
- The cost of living in Bankso is rather low if you avoid the touristy places - like a €3 lunch meal in a local restaurant
- There is lots of very cheap real estate due to overbuilding. You can buy a high quality apartment for €250-€350 per m2 or rent an apartment for €150 to €250 per month
- Bulgaria has an advantageous tax structure for entrepreneurs with a flat 10% income tax

Make sure to download our 'Guide to Bansko' from our website and ask many questions in our Facebook group to make the most out of your stay.

We have two locations in Bansko: One is in the old town area, the other is close to the Gondola. So you are never further than 10-15 minutes walk regardless where you stay in Bansko.

    August 2019

    Coworking Bansko is a space combining coworking and coliving space in a wonderful town same named. Whether you are a freelancer or a team it’s THE VERY place where you can cowork and enjoy serene and calm nature at the same time, a perfect place to work focused and inspired. Nature, animals, activities, place of life and sharing, everything is there! Great community + Internet connexion. Finally Matthias is an exceptional project manager and will amaze you his naturalness to facilitate synergies in the community. Many thanks for everything to all the staff :) We hope to see you soon!

      "A Slice of Nomad Heaven in the Mountain Community of Bansko!"

        July 2019

        Coworking Bansko is easily the best coworking experience I have had so far in my 1.5 years as a nomad. Even before arriving, CB provides a dossier chockful of useful information and tips on how to get to, around, and settled in Bansko and the coworking community. Matthias, Uwe and Cvetelina have built a super supportive and friendly environment where anyone coming in would feel like part of the family right away. Think you might be bored in this tiny mountain community? Well, CB has plenty of organized activities (seemingly daily!): from BBQ, hot spring nights, marketing talks to hikes, bike rides and weekend trips. I promise you won't be bored. Working on something cool and need some help? There's bound to be here who can lend a hand when you ask. The cost of living is super affordable, people are friendly and you're surrounded by mountains everywhere you look. I'm in love with this place. I will be back. :)

        "Awesome community for coworking and fun"

          July 2019

          I am usually not a big fan of co-working spaces, but the community that coworking Bansko has created in this small town is great and is much more valuable than just a seat and good wifi. There are many social events, workshops and the whole place is a cozy and welcoming environment for working and socializing

          "Bansko summer coworking fun!"

            July 2019

            I had some reservations about joining. I have been working & traveling for the past 2 years but have never felt like I needed to sign up for a co-working space. I am super glad I did though! In a small town like Bansko, it can feel isolated. The co-working helps make instant friends, as well as so many social events and opportunities. The work space is normally full.. but you have a lot of options to choose from- quite/ social/ outdoor. There were some Wifi problems recently but to no one's fault. Normally connection is good. Comfy chairs, stocked kitchen, large tables. All you need.

            "Came for 3 days. Stayed for a month."

              July 2019

              We came to Bansko on a whirlwind tour of Bulgaria to visit some fellow digital nomads for a few days. After one event at Coworking Bansko we decided to stay for a month. Even though it meant canceling plane tickets to Tbilisi. The coworking community here in Bansko it's VERY organized. There are social as well as business development events pretty much every day. A good example of where I focus time, energy and learning is the weekly marketing and biz growth meeting here where folks share knowledge and experience around SEO, business development, marketing best practices and strategy. And Friday night BBQ is pretty much a social must-do. The best part about coworking Bansko is that it is a member-driven community. You get out of it what you put into it. And that makes everyone want to put a lot into it! It doesn't hurt that Bansko is gorgeous. For USAians: think super-affordable Aspen! The facilities are top notch: variety of spaces from quiet to social. Smoking fast wifi and comfortable chairs.

              "Came to write, found a community"

                July 2019

                I came to Bansko because I needed to be out of the Schengen and I needed to seclude myself to finish a novel. I also work online so great wifi was a must. Every coworking space promises community, but in Bansko, they really mean it. I wish I could post pictures of the cute cats that hang out on the patio or the welcoming work spaces or even the bathroom which has this very soothing jungle sound that plays when you are in there for greater 'ahem' discretion. LOL Matthias and company have done so much to make this a fun and productive place to work and play.

                "This coworking space has built the most thriving nomad community I've seen. "

                  June 2019

                  I could go on and rave about the space. Actually, I'll start there. The amenities are wonderful, with quiet and social spaces to meet every need. The wifi is the best I've seen in Bulgaria (and most other countries frankly). There are private meeting rooms, whiteboards, kitchen facilities... really everything you'd ever want. But what really blows this place away is the community. You can arrive on day one and have a dozen friends. That's genuinely not an exaggeration. I've found the biggest difficulty of living in Bansko to be the FOMO of (almost) nightly activities when I have evening meetings. Certainly, as a nomad, that's the exact problem you want to have. I hope coworking bansko becomes the model ideal for the future of coworking. Bravo!

                  "Instantly make friends and feel at home in a gorgeous alpine landscape!"

                    June 2019

                    It's no surprise that so many Coworking Bansko members (including me and my boyfriend) start looking for a long-term rental or even an apartment to buy mere days after arriving in this small mountain town, and end up making it a part-time or permanent home base... and this is in huge part thanks to the coworking space! Let's be honest, coming to small-town Bulgaria isn't the most obvious choice for those who have the freedom to go anywhere, so it tends to attract curious & interesting people looking for something a bit different. The result is the most welcoming and close-knit community of nomads and coworkers we've found! What I love about it is that there's always some activity or event going on, so you can be as quiet and productive OR social as you want. Add to that beautiful mountain scenery, medieval restaurants with a lot of cheese specialties, good wine, delightful hot springs and spas, skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer, and you'll understand why many members return here and quickly start thinking of (Coworking) Bansko as a home!

                      "Great Place to Get Work Done and Relax after the Stresses of Long-term living in Asia"

                        June 2019

                        I've spent a long time in SE Asia living the Nomadic life. Unfortunately, after a while I got a little burnt out by it all, and both my work output and general life enjoyment suffered. I thought I'd try something new, so Europe it is for the summer. As I wanted a quieter place with fresh air Bansko seemed an ideal choice. The cost of living is cheap (I spend less here than in Thailand for sure). I still can't believe I can rent a one bedroom apartment with a balcony is available for 150 Euro a month in Europe! (the food and wine are cheap as chips too). As for the coworking space, well everyone has been friendly and helpful making it easy to settle in, the work environment is really productive, and I feel like I've got things back on track again work-wise. There are lots of facilities to make running your business easy. The space has great chairs and tables, and standing desks too. Very importantly the internet is spot on. There are loads of social activities for members ranging from film, game, and BBQ nights, business break-down discussions, right through to trips to the local Hot Spring; many members are into mountain biking and skiing too. Still a bit snowy yet up there for me, but I am looking forward to hiking and biking in the mountains later in the summer. Definitely 5 stars on everything for this gem of a place.

                        3 Thank Dean

                        "I came, I came back, and now I live here =D"

                          May 2019

                          Heard about this little hidden gem of a town at the foot of the Pirin Mountains long before I made my way over, but after repeated praise about the fresh air, the majestic sights and most importantly the community, I couldn't resist and had to find out for myself if it lived up to its hype. That was one year ago now and I've now spent close to 6 months here split into two trips. They weren't exaggerating! This town, and this co-working space, has every reason to be mentioned in "Top 5" lists of best places to come to work and mingle with other like-minded nomads. It's so good in fact that more and more people are making it their homebase and renting long-term or buying properties which can be had for surprisingly great value. I can now be counted as one of those people myself! Everything from the food, the activities, the staff and the ergonomics of the chairs and tables make this place a must-visit. If you're like everyone else I've talked to, you'll be charmed and won't want to leave! See you soon! ;-)

                          "I didn't think I could be SO exuberantly happy working "a desk job""

                            May 2019

                            I didn't think I could find a "home" until I landed at Coworking Bansko. I thought my gypsy soul would always seek movement and adventure. I thought I couldn't be convinced to work behind a desk again in this lifetime. 2 weeks later I really don't want to leave and if it wasn't for my next assignment waiting for me, I would have stayed the summer. I don't know if it is because of Matthias and Uwe who created the space and welcome everyone as their favorite cousin who they haven't seen in a long time and immediately make you feel like part of the family. I don't know if it is for the 50+ digital nomad members who are some of the brightest, kindest, most interesting, and quirkiest people I have met. I don't know if it is for the spotless clean and super comfortable accommodations they organize for you and the whole onboarding process in the first 2 weeks which is simply impeccable. Or maybe it is for all the activities they plan for members, after all I haven't been alone even one evening in 2 weeks. Or for the food in Bansko, OH THE FOOD! Or it is because Bansko reminds me of small town Colorado - quiet and safe but with so many outdoor activities and adventures around it that even an year wouldn't be enough to try them all. Or maybe it is the extremely low cost of living in Bansko for expats which rivals Chang Man. Whichever reason you may choose, you won't go wrong if you come and spend 90 days in Bansko, Bulgaria! I may, just may, be around :-)

                              "Great place if you want to be product and also have good social options on a small budget"

                                May 2019

                                This is my 2nd trip to Bansko and I used the Coworking space both time. In general I don't use Coworking spaces as the hours I work are usually the opposite of everyone else. But, when I'm in Bansko I join the Coworking just for the social aspect. The people are great and there are always tons of events going on. This winter they expanded due to demand and they now have 3 options for work spaces, which makes it convenient no matter where you Bansko you live. The couple times I have worked in the space it's been comfortable and productive. If you're looking for a great, cost effective, place to settle in for a couple months to really get some work done, this is the place to do it. The cost of living rivals that of South East Asia without many of the disadvantages.

                                    May 2019

                                    Coworking Bansko is in an ideal location for remote workers. From wherever you are staying, you will have a picturesque mountain view on your commute to work. The community Coworking Bansko has built is exceptional. If you are new to the city, it's a must stop for local advice and a reliable space to get work done. Bansko is known for its winter sports, but the city is just as lovely during the spring and summer months. I can't recommend the city enough, and the productive coworking space and nomadic community built by Coworking Bansko make it more than we could have hoped for. Visit! You will love it!

                                      May 2019

                                      Bansko Coworking is an excellent place to work and meet interesting people. The first thing you'll notice is the friendly atmosphere. There are community events almost every day and a private Facebook group for members. It's very easy to get to know people and you'll feel like you belong to a community, rather than just working alongside other people. The space is very convenient to work from. The fast wifi, the chairs, the layout of the space and the amenities are all designed to make you productive. This is the place to go if you want to get things done. The town of Bansko is picturesque, with some stunning views of the mountains and the charming streets of the Old Town. It's also very affordable, so perfect for long stays. I highly recommend Bansko Coworking to anyone who wants to be productive and social at the same time :)

                                          I've been in coworking spaces around the world and traveled with nomads all around the world and can tell you the gang in Bansko have really created something special. Not only is the town amazing, but the coworking is state of the art and they have community events almost daily. I am really enjoying my time here and for sure will be back.

                                            March 2019

                                            Overall the space is quite nice. They have ergonomic chairs in all of the areas, which is a huge improvement over many spaces I've been to. The wifi seems pretty fast, but it was having issues at one point, however I'm told this is a very rare occurrence. They also have a weekly board game night that seems pretty popular (they probably have around 40 or more board games)

                                              At Coworking Bansko you can get the best of both worlds, beautiful, untouched nature at the UNESCO protected Pirin national park and a good place to work with a good connection. Bansko is a nice little town with great infrastructure and easy to find cheap apartments. Besides the great location and proximity to nature, the best thing about Coworking Bansko is it's community. Met lots of likeminded people, made friends, hired people from the community for my business. The space itself is also nice, with proper office chairs, solid table and in the new space a standing desk. There are three locations and is convenient to access from anywhere around town. There is lots of activities to connect with other members, such as game night, video night and also work related skill share sessions etc. Coworking Bansko organizes good events and conferences regularly. If something grabs your attention, don't hesitate and visit! You won't regret it.

                                                The co-working Bansko Team have created a very welcoming, creative and cool place to get some work done! The co-working space is equipped with everything you might need for working or hosting an event! Besides working space you will have access to a Skype room, a session room, Internet, standing desk and much more. If you need a place to stay the team will help out with apartments or guest-house recommendations. But this place is far more than a working space it is a great community social space which gives you a family feeling when you are on the road. There are a lot of social activities offered in the evenings - which you may attend if you (or Mathias:) feel like it - that will give you an opportunity to experience great community feeling. Activities you may join are for example: Movie- Game- Speakers- Hot Spring- Night, Skiing Trips and more The prices in Bansko in general are good value! The atmosphere in the CoWorking space is amazing very motivating and welcoming, mostly digital nomads from all around the world work here. The hosting team is great, Mathias is a character but he will pressure you into success!!! That is a bonus I would recommend 100%, I have been there two times already and I am already planning my return.

                                                  February 2019

                                                  This was my first coworking experience, and even though I have high expectations based on reviews, Bansko coworking managed to surprise me and exceeded my expectations! They opened up second location near gondola which is super convenient in the winter season when you spend a lot of time on the slopes and want to get to workspace quickly. And there is social and quiet spaces downtown, so each day you can choose what suits you the best. Each space has great wifi, coffee/tea and really comfy chairs. The community is very welcoming, neverending events will not let you be bored, you meet so many great people there! Coworking Bansko makes you feel right at home from your first day there.

                                                    The networking & social options that come from the coworking community are a huge plus and really help make Bansko feel like the home that it should be to many more people. There are a few different areas to work from, within different section of the coworking space, rather than one large section. The leadership crew is very friendly and attentive to creating events in order for people to have something to do while spending their time here in Bansko. Friendly environment and would absolutely recommend! Will be returning in some of the coming seasons to enjoy my time in Bankso.

                                                      Last year I was looking for an affordable home base close to Germany - but discovered so much more than that with lovely Bansko. Not only does Coworking Bansko provide a super awesome and welcoming community and a productive work environment on comfy chairs. The mountains, hot springs and other sights in the proximity really make this remote mountain village a great and exciting place to be all year round. Combine this with affordable rents, real estate prices, low cost of living and cheap 2-4h flights to almost everywhere in europe and you'll get the (luckily still slightly unpolished) gem that Bansko is. Mission homebase achieved!

Really affordable location as well. Really great cafe next door for coffee lovers and lunch options nearby for less than $5. Being here for the winter has been amazing as their is much snow and good terrain, but I have heard that there is even more to do in the summer and for that reason I would like to return and see all of which Bansko has to offer... you will not regret coming here ok

                                                          Coworking Bansko is one of the best Coworking spaces I have been a part of. There is an active community of wonderful people, and the calendar is always filled with events. Space, wifi and coffee are also top notch, but it is the community here that makes the place special. There is a social space, quiet space and call rooms so whatever you need, they have it. Also, it's super convenient that you get a fob to let you in, so you can come any time of day or night. Even on weekends there are other people here working, so you'll never be alone. Can't wait to come back soon :)

                                                            Bansko is a great location for digital nomads. The community of the coworking is great and you can do many activities during the week. The place is perfect to work. However Bansko is a cold place, the office is warm and the temperature is perfect inside. Good quality of materials, chairs, tables...good wifi, great coffee. The owners and the people encharge are great people . I recommend this place and I will be back soon! - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - -- - - -- - - - -- - - - - -- -

Kudos for pursuing the vision! The workspace is well furnished, clean and cozy. The wifi is backed by fiber optics, so it's more consistent than cable, DSL or wireless backhaul, which is a necessity - especially if like me you need the ability to remote into multiple systems simultaneously. They've opened up a space near the gondola to comfortably handle the winter season!

                                                                Since I've been into the digital nomads / location independent communities, I've heard a lot of great things and stories about Coworking Bansko. The moment finally came to experience it by myself. Here is the story of my one month long stay. First, the "Easy Landing Package" is a great and really easy solution for a first stay in Bansko. Everything was really easy from the booking procedure until my arrival and installation either at the coworking and the guesthouse (mine was just at a 2 minutes walk, and even closer to the fruit and vegetables market). Then, the coworking spaces are really welcoming and comfortable. One is the "social space" where you will meet people either during your work and for many activities like workshops, shared dinners, movie nights, games nights, etc. Almost next door in the same street is the "quiet space" where you can work without being disturbed by any conversation. These 2 spaces are in the pretty nice and pleasant old town. A third space was about top open after my stay, in the upper town, ideally located especially for ski and work. Most of all, the community is really awesome, big and growing. People are not only open to share knowledge, experience and fun activities together, many are really into collaboration too. "Sharing is caring" makes sense. And it's significant to know that Coworking Bansko will soon turn into a cooperative, being managed with the same values and spirit than the ones that liven the community of coworkers up. Oh and last thing... as I've heard it happens to many coworkers going there for first time, not only I will come again soon, but I will stay much longer and I'll probably settle a base here.

For someone who works in foreign places, the right environment is important. These coworking spaces have been in London (UK), Dahab (Egypt), Bangkok (Thailand), Chiang Mai (Thailand), Phnom Penh (Cambodia). (I will only mention the places where I like to remember the coworking spaces ;) ) I don't know if this makes me a specialist in coworking space evaluation, but I do know that I can only be productive in the right environment. There are several things that make the environment productive for me: cool community, interesting surroundings, fast internet, good office chairs, rooms for Skype conferences, attention to detail, great onboarding,... Most coworking spaces pay attention to one or more of these points. Actually nobody puts value on all of them. And now I'm on my way back from a coworking space that is attentive to EVERYTHING. What Uwe and Matthias have built up with the Coworking Bansko - Base for Digital Nomads in Bulgaria is just great. They have created a place where I can work productively. There's a cool community , there's great office equipment with real office chairs :). There's really fast internet, Skype rooms and everything else you need to work.

First thing I really liked was the space itself because It has different areas depending of your needs and what you want to do. I spend most of my time in the social area and the event space, but if you are looking for being more productive and focused you will find a quiet space in the annex building. The wifi works really well, you have very comfy chairs and tables where you can plug all your devices, cofffee and tea, etcetera. I also love the location, right in the center of the old town and away from the more touristy and noisey area of the Gondola. But the best part is the community based in here. I would like to higlight the variety of its members' background. I have met bloggers, ESL Teachers, software developers, designers, artists and a long etcetera of creative types always willing to share and help you with your projects. The founders of Coworking Bansko, Uwe and Matthias, have created a wonderful event calendar and almost everyday there is something to do: movie night, barbeques, visits to the hotsprings, conferences and board game nights, among others. It is almost impossible to get bored in here. Being social and productive it is a dream the community in Coworking Bansko is achieving on daily basis.

There are a lot of events usually going on so you won't be bored :) Restaurants, Sunday market, the city center are very close. Wi-Fi is fast, free coffee and tea, there is a quite space as well if you prefer to work in full focus and conference room. Matthias and Uwe can help you with transfer, accommodation and bike renting. Bansko is a great place to live and ski during the season :) I would really recommend to come to visit :)

After a few months mostly traveling around just the two of us, it was very refreshing to go to a space and have welcoming people to chat with, have lunch with, meditate with, and have a beer with. We were in town during offseason for the rest of the town, but for for the coworking space there were still many events going on, including member talks, a pub night, and a group trip to the local hot springs. Overall, an awesome place to meet people and feel settled.

The space is amazing, and has everything you could want, from fresh coffee and tea to comfortable chairs, and even hammocks for your break time. The community was the best thing, though. There is always something to do, no matter your interests, and it’s all community driven depending on the people there at the time. Bansko is a beautiful little city with plenty to offer, too. I loved going on hikes and trips to the nearby hot springs. I recommend getting a membership and finding your own accommodation. It’s very easy and cheap to do once you’re on the ground. Iloved my time with the Coworking community in Bansko! I’ll definitely be back in the near future!

A meeting room and a skype room round out the space. Nice calendar of social activities and a bbq deck. You can rent a bike too. Bansko is a nice, laid-back town with cool locals. My only wish is that they had private spaces that could be reserved to teach languages online from. Members are always headed for hikes or to the local hot springs. Although not large by European or North American standards, the ski hill looks nice and we hope to return in winter to check it out.

Coworking Layout & Amenities: Great wifi, out of the city location, highly productive environment (quiet area, social-chatty area, skype rooms, conference rooms and event space (much larger and well thought out than I had imagined). All the seats are ergonomically designed and there's also 2 standup working areas spots, plus an outdoor patio for fresh air during summer. Socializing & Connections: Bansko Coworking is not for everyone but if you value personal connection with people, and you are open to the idea of being a rural town where there isn't a dozen things happening every night then chances are you'll really this place :) I found it to be great place to be productive, get into nature (alpine hikes, bike rides, slacklining and hot springs) in the summer. The coworking values a strong community which makes it a great launchpad for social actives and personal connection. Thought for Improvement: Would love to see more circulation and dehydration in the downstairs event space, a lot of trapped humidity here with a mildew smell, especially after it's been cleaned (mopped).

I had initally planned to come for one month in January of this year, but ended up extending until the end of April! The co-working community here is growing all of the time - with a regular influx of new members and a growing cohort of long term members. An active social life is built into the experience here, and you're never stuck for something to do. Whether it's eating out at one of the excellent (and generously priced) local restaurants, hiking in the summer, or skiing in the winter, you'll definitely find something to fit your tastes in Bansko. Highly recommend for both short term and long term nomads.

I came back to spend little more than a month and the main reason is the coworking. Bansko is nice but I would probably not spend more than 3 days here if it wasn't for the amazing vibe the coworking has. I've worked in many different coworkings around the world but this is the first time I pay for a monthly membership and I'm very surprised by how active and social the community is. You'll never be alone if you don't want to. There's something going on everyday. There's also different types of spaces (quiet, social, meeting rooms, etc). The onboarding is very complete and they give you all the information you'll need for a great Bansko experience. It's an amazing place for focusing on work and don't spend much but still be in Europe!

They have created an amazing community into which I felt immediately embraced. The focus on support, collaboration and a very healthy work/life balance was invigorating and inspiring in many ways. Through the mastermind sessions and other events put together by both Coworking Bansko and individual members proved invaluable even in the short time I was there (2 weeks). So, for all these reasons, I decided to make Bansko my first long term base when I move to full time remote working later this year.

After traveling and working in Bali, Thailand, Vietnam, Medellin, Budapest, London, and the United States, I can truly say Coworking Bansko is unique. They have two different work spaces, one for social and one for quiet space. There's an event happening almost every day. Basically, if you want to cowork with people and actually feel like you have a home base, this is the place. The founders are active members of the community, and it doesn't feel like "a business" - instead, it feels like a community. The area is really cool too. Cheap food, friendly people, a old scottish type architecture. A+.

The community is just great--there are more events than any one person can participate in, so you're free to pick and choose the ones that suit you. The vibe was incredibly friendly. The workspace is open 24/7 and the cost of living is very low, which means everyone feels a little freer to splash out and have fun... I'm a vegetarian and I expected to have trouble in Eastern Europe, but every restaurant in town has veggie options and a lot of them are delicious. Definitely give Coworking Bansko a try if you're on the right side of the pond.

We did the landing package and everything ran as smoothly as possible. The Coworking Space is easily the best I've worked in and the communication with the team is fantastic. The space is kept well organized and clean, even though there isn't really coliving here, the community is very strong with more activities/events scheduled than it is actually possible to keep up with. And Bansko itself is simply a fantastic location. It's beautiful and charming with tons of great restaurant options -- even in the summer season when a great deal is closed. Check out Coworking Bansko. You won't be sorry!

I felt incredibly supported and included in any and all events from Day 1 for my entire two weeks that I spent in this gorgeous mountain town. I truly feel that I’ve made new long-term friends and also got to try many new things while being very productive. The cheap cost of living only makes it all the better! Thank you, Co-Working Bansko. I’ll definitely be back!

                                                                                              So I've been doing co-working/co-living for nine months now, and I no longer trust online reviews. You patronize a place, you get to know the founders, and they're really nice, and you post a nice review, because they're nice people, and you don't want to burn bridges. I've seen it again and again: people who I KNOW were frustrated with a place post a rave review out of a sense of obligation to the owner. And yes, I was asked to post this particular review. THAT SAID, this is the best co-working place I've been to so far. It's professionally run, clean, well-organized, with a great community. And it's set in beautiful/extremely affordable Bansko, Bulgaria, which all digital nomads should visit. The chairs are great, the internet is fast, the drinks are good, there's plenty of space. It's literally everything you'd want in a co-working space -- even a "quiet" work room and a "you can be more social" work room. It's top-notch. And I am TRULY not just saying that because I was guilted into it by the owner. Brent Hartinger [email protected]

Each time you come and co-work, you can choose where you stand on the social-productive scale :) Beside having all the necessary amenities (including beanbags, board games and a coffee machine!) - there is a strong emphasis on community. Members not only work together, but also meet up frequently for social and professional activities. It's easy to suggest or organize events simply by posting in the members' group. Bansko is also located in an attractive spot - close to Sofia and other places in Bulgaria as well as Greece, Macedonia and Kosovo - while still maintaining the feel of a small, quiet town among the mountains. Come to Bansko and see for yourself :)

Great community, lots of friends, comfortable bright space, awesome chairs and tables, fast internet, great location... heck... it's better than home I suppose... I love the people that Coworking Bansko attracts, they are interesting, smart people, entrepreneurs, digital nomads, people that are having the same interests but are also not afraid of change. I have met one of my best friends here and I can honestly say that Coworking Bansko literally changed my life, by ntroducing me to new opportunities and new mindset. Thank you guys, you rock!

The people are so welcoming, the work space is great for whatever you need (quite or ambient noise), tonnes of social stuff happening all the time and you will never be short of company if you want to get out of the extremely comfortable office. Free (great) coffee (absolutely essential for me), really fast wifi, and proper chairs that will support your back so you can pour hours into your online venture. I came to Bansko because I needed a quiet productive space to really smash out a lot of client work and progress my main side project. I did not expect to meet so many awesome, interesting characters or have so many options of things to do. There is a huge culture here of knowledge sharing and collaboration and the private FB group for members who are here is probably the most active one I've ever experienced. Major props to Matthias, Uwe and Elena for creating this place. I'll definitely be back, and maybe next time in the Winter to get some boarding in.

With Mathias and Uwe you have two well informed guys who are fun but also knowledge. And knowledge is priceless. Surely the place is highly recommendable if you visit Bansko. Take your time, enjoy the mountaines, the free time, the community, your work, some easy going lunch, some mineral water, mounteen biking and then interesting talk with Mathias or Uwe or some other community people. The goal is the way not the end point and Mathias and Uwe offers you on this way a very pleasant, easy going and valuable time.
