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 believe that 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.
- 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.

"A Fab Community in the Beautiful Pirin Mountains! "

    September 2018

    I spent a month at coworking Bansko and loved it! 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!

    "Nice Vibe!"

      September 2018

      Two spaces to choose from - Quiet and Social. Both are well-equipped to get it done. 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.

      "Great Connections & Rural Adventures"

        September 2018

        Love this place! Amazing amenities and a very supportive environment for collaboration and social actitives! 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).

        "Great community, working environment, social life & nature"

          September 2018

          I've just began my second membership with Coworking Bansko. 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.

          "Community is everything!"

            September 2018

            I came to Bansko to one of the coworking events last year and fell in love with the town. 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!

            "So good, I'm going back for more!"

              August 2018

              Coworking Bansko was my first time being based in a coworking space for more than a couple of days, as I transition into remote working and I could not have asked for a better experience. 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.

              "One of the best communities I've found"

                August 2018

                Coworking Bansko has one of the best communities I've found. 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+.

                "great location, great community"

                  August 2018

                  I spent about a month and a half in Bansko during a cool and rainy summer and I wish I could have doubled it. 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.

                  "Incredibly Well Run From Start to Finish"

                    July 2018

                    Honestly can't say enough good things about well run Coworking Bansko is. 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!

                    "The King of Co-Working Community Life "

                      July 2018

                      This was my first experience spending significant time at one co-working space, but I don’t really think you could get any better than Coworking Bansko in terms of great WiFi, comfortable chairs, range of activities to do in the area all surrounded by gorgeous mountain scenery, but most of all the incredible community of co-workers that co-founders Uwe and Matthias have worked hard to build in the ski resort village of Bansko, Bulgaria. 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!

                      "Don't Trust Online Reviews"

                        July 2018

                        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]

                          June 2018

                          Coworking Bansko has two spaces - quiet and social. 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 :)

                            June 2018

                            Coworking Bansko is the only coworking space I can't wait to come back to. 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!

                              June 2018

                              I've been lucky enough to have worked in at least a dozen different coworking places all over the world, and this one is one of the best. 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.

                                  Co-working Bansko is just a great co-working space in the middle of Mountains! Calm town in Bulgaria with not so much distraction. Good to focus/work and socialise . The community is great and plans a lot of events every week. Workshops, board games (with a great collection downstairs the social space), barbecue (in summer) hiking or other nature trips. The Wifi ist great and they have 2 different spaces. One quiet space for working focused and productive and a social space + projector for presentations or movie night. Good Coffee and water flatrate inklusive. Great desks and chairs (better than every co-working space I experienced before). Absolute recommendation and must check-out !

                                    Coworking Bansko makes the small mountain town of Bansko, Bulgaria a very livable and pleasant destination for digital nomads, without which, Bansko would just be a nice place for a short holiday. Coworking Bansko provides everything you'd want and expect in a coworking space: *Fast Internet *Comfortable chairs *Coffee & tea *Multiple workspaces *Meeting room *Technology for presentations *Quiet and collaborative spaces *24/7 access for members *Almost most importantly - a guiding mission, engaged community, activities and sense of togetherness A crowded, NYC-style WeWork it is not, but if you come to Coworking Bansko to work in a friendly low-key environment, meet other like-minded people, plug into an existing community and enjoy life, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

                                    "Bansko Lives Up to the Hype - It's the Perfect Coworking Space."

                                      May 2018

                                      The town itself might not be for everyone as it's cold in the winter and more of a small resort village than a city. But if you're into skiing or snowboarding and low costs to living, you might think it's paradise. I'm here during the summer and it seems like a perfect quiet place to get work done with ultra low costs of living and great food. Plus for Americans it's great that it's not in the Schengen zone for visa reasons. I'll write a full review of Bansko itself on my blog at johnnyfd.com but for now the actual space: Coworking Bansko is the perfect coworking space. I've been to over a hundred all across the world and have written the article "Designing the perfect Coworking Space" (https://www.johnnyfd.com/2017/10/designing-perfect-coworking-space.html) Coworking Bansko checks all of the boxes and is perfect in terms of ergonomics, design, furniture, atmosphere, natural lighting, community, wifi speeds, value, etc. They have skype rooms with padding to reduce echo, excellent free coffee, and is overall the most comfortable place I've ever worked from. It deserves 5 stars not because it looks pretty in photos or has a swimming pool like other spaces in the world, but because it really is a 5 star coworking space.

                                        this coworking space is THE heart of the intl community in Bansko. The owners have worked hard and poured their passion into creating not just a stellar space ( actually 2 spaces- 1 quiet space & 1 social plus skype rooms & event rooms ) but into bringing others to their little community & making them feel welcome, included & supported. Game nights, movie nights, dinners, lunchs, bbqs, hikes, member presentations ( sharing expertise with eachother) - you name it it happens here. The community is full of people generous with their sharing of skills with others. Cant recommend highly enough. Wonderful job Matthias, Uwe, Elena & Irina!

                                          Loved my time here! Coworking Bansko offers everything you would expect from a good coworking space: excellent wifi, comfy seats, free coffee/tea, Skype room, etc. However, I've worked in quite a few coworking space over the years, and where Coworking Bansko really stands out is its community. This is greatly due to Uwe and Matthias (the founders), who stop at nothing to put Bansko on the map as a digital nomad hub. Expect movie nights, communal lunches, visits to hot springs, and BBQ in the summer. Also, Bansko is a great place if you love outdoor activities: skiing/snowboarding in the winter, hiking/mountain biking in summer. My favorite coworking space so far!

                                          "The Best I've Ever Coworked"

                                            April 2018

                                            This place is great. I didn't visit the space very often, maybe 20-25 times over my 4 1/2 months in Bansko, but everytime I was overwhelmed by the beauty that is this space. You can tell that the cofounders actually give a s**t about the space and creating community - even if it's just for them to have the community themselves. There's a space for you if you want to dig in and get work done (me most of the time) but there's also a place where you can get chatty. It's the best of both worlds and all in-between. Go here...now. Maybe I will see you there.

                                            "Much more than just a coworking space"

                                              April 2018

                                              I've been at coworking Bansko for just two weeks but I fell in love with the community and the magic energy around it. The coworking was the perfect space where to get lots of work done. I loved to be able to work long hours because the chair I was sitting in was super comfortable. But this coworking is not just about been productive, is also about a lovely community. Everyone was extremely friendly and there was always some great activity going on that helped to disconnect from work. I recommend this amazing experience from the bottom of my heart.

                                              "My second time here. The best coworking space in Bansko! "

                                                April 2018

                                                Fast Wi-Fi, regular conferences and workshops and the people here know every nice bar and restaurant in town. Well worth your time! I visited for the mountain crypto conference in April 2017 and will try to be back before the winter kicks in. The atmosphere is relaxed and the space has ample seats, beanbags, projectors, 3d printers and anything else you might require to work like at home, away from home. Uwe and Matthias are the friendliest hosts in Bansko and the good vibe is reflected on the rest of the permanent coworkers in this space. Where else can you ski in the morning, work in the afternoon and dip in a mineral pool after work, before heading into town to sample some of the loveliest bars and restaurants that Bansko has to offer. Highly recommended!

                                                "Lovely and inspiring community"

                                                  April 2018

                                                  After recommendation by a friend, I stayed at coworking Bansko for three months to see what these magnificent people have come up with. They have indeed. The office functionality is marvelous and onboarding smooth. In addition to having an office, address, and cozy workplace, occasional accommodation and real estate tips, you get a bunch of awesome people to do inspiring stuff with, self-organized, have both meaningful and silly conversations with, very good group atmosphere, and the occasional hangout, game night, sports partners, pool and potluck trips, business pitches, learning circles, larger events, and on and on... A low cost of living, breathtaking scenery, historical sites, and the nature nearby complete the picture for you. Else, just ask for Irina to help you with it - and frame it for you in the center's art gallery. The possibility to easily launch your own events, and the overall goal of making the place self-sustained are more reason to support this magnificent venture. For those who enjoy it more than once, moving to Bansko may seem like a great opportunity. The place keeps evolving over time, so it's worth a revisit even just to see what part is being 3D-printed next. Downsides: It is all too easy to succumb to the social offers, if you do not choose the quiet space. Bulgarian is not a prerequisite. (can make people really comfy, but you get the better experience and resolutions, when you can communicate with the locals)

                                                    April 2018

                                                    Simple: best coworking I’ve seen so far after working from 18 countries. Excellent price-quality ratio. Great combination of “Social” and “Quiet” spaces which both have good chairs and great internet. I was able to be very productive in the afternoons while (learning how to) snowboard in the mornings. The real value though, comes from the community. It’s a perfect sized group of entrepreneurs to have fun, and have great work-related talks with. It's easy to join any events and meet new people, but also very comfortable if you're just trying to focus on work. Everything else has been said before and I can’t agree enough with the other reviews.

                                                      April 2018

                                                      This is the first coworking space I've been to and I was so surprised how inclusive and friendly the community was. From the first day, I was invited to any and all social events (of which there are plenty) while having somewhere great to work. Members regularly go for dinner, skiing, share business problems, go to the hot springs and there's conferences held on things like crypto currencies, freelancing, bloggers etc. I ski in the mornings and work in the afternoon/ evenings...the perfect balance. People are from such varied backgrounds and businesses it's also inspired me to challenge my own career ideas. Bansko is incredibly cheap to live in and I'm planning to return in the summer!

                                                        No need to repeat what others already said! I fully agree, amazing coworkingspace! We feel so much part of the community that we bought an apartment here, set our company entities here and are applying for residency tomorrow! :) Staying for a while. The air, the food, the community, the spa, easy residency, low taxes, culture, fun, other countries, it is all here. I am pretty sure that when you come you will not want to leave the Bansko Magnet! It is an ideal place to settle down for a while and get some work done! See you soon in Bansko

                                                          March 2018

                                                          The goal was clear: find a ski resort where I can stay for more than 1 month and not get bankrupt. Eventually chose Bansko after many recommendations from my friend and other digital nomads. Even though I found an apartment with a very good Internet access (fiber optics) I missed the social part of working and motivating each other. Coworking Bansko supplemented the missing part. And more. The extra friendly, extra warm atmosphere from people working there and taking care of the place is an enormous mood booster. Plus you get all the things necessary: fast Internet, comfortable chairs and well equipped kitchen. What else do you need from a productive working space?

                                                            It's easy to set up a coworking space really. Some desks, Internet and a roof. Done. It's harder to make it a community and an inviting place to work. The guys here have done a great job doing just that. There are events most days, work and fun related, and there is always someone willing to help out with the day to day living here in Bansko. For a location that is a bit out of the ordinary, good location wise for Europe road trips, Bansko coworking is a great place to base yourself from. Ski in the winter and trundle along with bears in the summer. Perfect.

Everyone is really passionate about their work, but with so much going on at Coworking Bansko it allows everyone to have a great work/fun balance. It's a very relaxed, but inspiring vibe. WiFi is great, coffee is great, and there are lots of cheap and amazing restaurants nearby. I came here for a week, and now I have bought an apartment and am looking forward to spending summer here :)

                                                                There are so many good things to say about Coworking Bansko, but I'll start with the very best. I am a bit of a loner and don't love too much socializing. They said it would be like a family and I thought, sure we'll see. But no, it's really just like a family (in all the good ways, and none of the bad). This place attracts the friendliest people and we always get lunch and do activities together. There are so many great events planned and of course if you have any ideas for activities or movies you can organize too, very easily. When I first arrived I didn't think much of the town, but then the snow came and it turned into a winter wonderland. If you like winter sports and you work online, there is no better, more affordable place to be based in Europe or anywhere. The people that run this place had the best intentions for building a community center for nomads that is warm, toasty and welcoming. It's true what they said - you come for a visit and want to stay - possibly forever! Haha so come check it out and experience the Bansko vortex for yourself.

                                                                  This is my first coworking experience and I am absolutely loving it. The thing I have noticed most is the people. The staff told me it would feel like my new family when I arrived and they are absolutely right. Everyone here is so warm and open and interesting. It's so easy to find someone to talk to, bounce ideas off or work until the early hours of the morning with. But not only that, the members regularly organise events. Some are regular such as morning yoga on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Whereas others are more spontaneous like going bowling or doing the Escape Room that Bansko has. I feel very welcomed here by everyone. The staff just feel like the "older siblings" of the coworking family. They are all super easy to approach, talk to and run questions by and also are regularly getting stuck in to the events held at the space. There are two spaces: social and productive. Both have super fast WiFi which I have had no complaints about (and have heard none from other coworkers as of yet). In the social space it is a bit noisier as some people have conversations every now and then but it is not loud really. And then the productive space is a lovely quiet space with a pellet heater (read: posh fire) that keeps the room nice and toasty. The location is pretty great. But then again it would be hard to have a bad location in Bansko since you can get anywhere in a 30-minute walk. There are some wonderful restaurants round the corner where coworkers get a discount on the already-super-cheap meals. Overall, I could not recommend this place highly enough. You should come here.

I wanted an office with hi speed internet and a good Skype room. It was harder than I thought to find such a place in Europe. I finally asked a coworking expert, and she turned me onto Coworking Bansko. When I made contact, I got quick, informative and friendly replies. Irina gave me a gracious welcome on her day off so I could test out teaching in the Skype room and all went very well. On Monday I was already making friends with interesting coworkers who know a lot about how to live and work well in Bansko. Great temporary accommodation was easy to find. At first I was in an apartment with a stunning Mountain View for $14/night and began to fall in love with the gorgeous Pirin mountains. Soon I was going to mineral springs and enjoying delicious meals in the old town with my new coworking buddies from Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Netherlands, Australia, N.Z., Canada, the USA and the U.K. Now I live in a spacious furnished apartment where I cook, enjoy both sunrise and sunset views, easily head downstairs for yoga and other Coworking Bansko events, and shop for great produce at the market. Outdoor adventures abound, my work is going well, and I have a great life here, so it was easy to decide to stay for six months and enjoy more of what Bansko offers. Come join us and see for yourself!

It's greate place just to visit for 2 weeks to extend your social connections, or even move to Bansko for years. Basnko as all-year season with affordavle prices and perfect climate is fantastic option for live and work!

Matthias, Uwe, and Irina have done an amazing job turning this small Bulgarian village into a digital nomad destination! Not only is Coworking Bansko great for building professional connections and learning new skills, but it's in an affordable town with plenty of things to do. Will 10/10 come back and stay longer next time!

Bansko was already a favourite place for me for the opportunities it offers to spend time in the mountain hiking, doing your favourite pastime or just enjoying the spectacular views. Because I'm quite busy, it isn't always easy to organize a leasure trip. Then Coworking Bansko came to the rescue. The coworking space is organized so that yours and other members' work is streamlined depending on what you need to do, so you can either work in the social space if you are after creative ideas or in the quiet space if you're after deadlines. Work is made easy by the perfect conditions and proximity of places to stay and eat. Plus you become a member of a community of hard-working open-minded individuals who are ready to help and join in various events happening. I could only wish I visited the space more often!

The space offers everything you need to get work done (good chairs, super fast wifi, Skype rooms, and of course: coffee!), but what makes this place special is the community. Before, during and after my trips (2 so far, 3rd one coming up next month) the team was helping me to connect with other people who had similar interests. In addition, the location is beautiful if you love the outdoors: mountain biking, hiking, rafting, horse riding, golf, snowboarding, skiing... it's all possible!

Great organization with two spaces - social and productive - match everybody's needs. Vivid social life in the evenings, with small community events brings life into this space. Made with love, made with lot of effort being put in, made with members' needs in mind. All the amenities, the space, the work equipment, the wifi connection is top notch. You can be productive, but you won't feel isolated, alone, or lonely, whether you're just passing by, or staying for a while.

I saw the space go from just the small social space into the thriving coworking space it's become. Matthias and Uwe along with Irina have done an awesome job! Anything I needed they helped with. The wifi is super fast. There is a quiet space if you need it. There are fee amenities like coffee. Everyone gets to know each other here. That is what I really liked. There are to many times to even remember that things were organised for dinners and other social events. For Bansko itself the town is awesome. It's cheap. The ski hill is great for the price you pay. I lived close to the Gondola in the expensive part of town and mainly ate out at the tourist places and I still didn't spend more than 1000 euros for the month. If you live closer to the coworking space you can live very cheap. Overall 5 starts. Bansko is a awesome town and the the coworkins space is great also.

I saw an epic medium post from Cynthia and was sold. This cute little co-working space had opened up on a ski resort - how awesome and original is that, were my initial thoughts. I arrived in mid January to a very snowy Bansko, greeted by the lovely Irina and Uwe, who made me feel like I was at home from day 1. I have never experienced a coworking space that has made me feel like I was a part of such a special family. They really do practice what they preach - their aim is to make you feel as though you're part of a community and that's exactly how I felt. I was originally drawn to Bansko because of the skiing but if I'm honest it's the people here that just made my experience what is was - I'll always look back and know that it's one of the best things I've done and they still make me feel like I'm welcome there anytime! It's like another home :) The team that run this space will quickly become your friends, they're such characters and the fact that this space is located in Old Town adds to its charm. Old Town is quaint and historic, with an array of restaurants to choose from (Irina knows all the best ones!). Internet connection is excellent. I was super productive in the space too, made friends easily, able to get to cute little coffee shops nearby for my coffee breaks.

                                                                                            Staying in Bansko for 3 weeks for the yearly company meeting. On the arrival we had Irina to welcome us with open arms and plenty of smiling. She has been our go to person for all our needs and I must say I couldn't ask any more from her, she's always available and a joy to talk to. The cowork space is small but the right size for Bansko. Everyone we've met here is friendly and more than helpful. I even had a change to ride a Fazer 1000 motorcycle courtesy of Rob who was nice enough to lend it to me for a few amazing hours! The space is centrally located in Bansko near the main square so you’ll be able to reach it easily. There are 3 rooms available in two separate buildings to fit everyone, one is quiet and the other one is more social, so you can be a bit more noisy if you prefer. I would definitely come back again, surely in the winter to enjoy all the perks of this amazing season in Bansko.

The idea was to go skiing there, but the creative vibe was contagious so I spend most of the time working until the late evening as well as exchanging ideas and stories with other coworkers.

From a productivity point of view it is excellent: several comfortable spaces, excellent wifi, meeting & Skype/call rooms - basically everything you need. Irina & Matthias were incredibly welcoming and showed us the hot springs and best places to eat. Bankso itself is in a stunning mountain location which is great for summer hiking and biking as well as winter snow sports. Highly recommended!

Having met Matthias previously we were confident that he would create the perfect space and we were not disappointed. Matthias was also very helpful prior to the trip, giving us tips on organisation and accommodation. The space is two buildings, one for being productive and one for being more chatty. Both have excellent facilities - fast, reliable WiFi, tea/coffee/kitchen facilities, printers, screens, meeting rooms, Skype rooms, etc. Everything you need in an office to be productive and motivated. Irina, a Bansko local who manages the space, adds to the community atmosphere that Coworking Bansko is trying to create. We immediately felt very welcome and at home here. Irina provides all the information you could possibly want on how things work in Bansko, where to get things, where to go when you're not working. She even took me to a traditional Bulgarian dance class at the community centre. The team are also not pushy so if you're the kind not to join in, you will still feel comfortable here and be able to get some work done. Bankso is a very easy town to get to know, very close to some beautiful mountains. We were here in May, after the ski season and before the summer season kicked off. We still managed some hikes (a little snowy) and fun in the sun (when not so high up the mountain. Coworking Bansko was the perfect place to get a lot of work done in a beautiful location with more than enough activities and downtime after the work is done. The team have built a place with a real community feel. We felt motivated but also had a chance to be social. We were very well looked after!

The place has a very fast internet connection. Accomodation is very cheap and it is a winter resort. Irina showed me the photographs of Bansko mountains and told me about the natural beatiues of the place at spring and summer time, trekking, hot spring waters and so on. Looking forward to go there soon again. Coworking Bansko is offering lots more than a space.
