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.

"Amazing community!"

    September 2017

    When it comes to coworking, it's tough to find a space that focuses on community as much as career development. 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!

    "Nice relaxed working atmosphere with busy social life and lots of opportunities to spend time in the open"

      September 2017

      My stay in Bansko while working at the coworking space charged me with positivity and made future seem brighter. 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!

      "I do recommend Coworking Bansko"

        September 2017

        Awesome people, nice atmosphere, good amenities, affordable, mountains, nature... and a two- to three-hour drive to the nearest beach in Greece - in other words, the whole package is there.

          "My favourite getaway spot!"

            July 2017

            Coworking Bansko is by far my favourite coworking space when I want to get away from a busy city life. 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!

            "Coworking space with people in mind"

              May 2017

              This is by far the coworking space where the owners put the most effort in making the community work. 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.

                May 2017

                Fascinating mountain nature, fun-to-be around co-founders, where the fun never stops, friendly working atmosphere. Fast Internet!

                "Awesome coworking space!"

                  May 2017

                  I was one of the first coworkers for the ski season of 16/17. 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.

                    Super friendly and professional staff, extremely affordable with a low cost of living and always plenty of activities and people to party with! I would highly recommend a visit to Bansko and make use of the awesome community that's evolved there over the past year since the space has opened its doors.

                    "Awesome productive space, great family feel community, Surrounded by mountains, close to cute coffee shops and restaurants"

                      May 2017

                      I was fortunate to be on the Coworking bansko 'Nomad in Residence' program in Jan - Feb 2017. 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.

                      "Calm, productive, friendly and well located."

                        May 2017

                        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.

                          I had such a productive week at Coworking 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.

                            May 2017

                            Coworking Bankso is one of the best coworking places I have experienced (and I have been to many all over the world!) 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!

                            "Perfect for a 'Workcation'"

                              May 2017

                              We bought a team of five to Bankso for a 'Workcation' of three weeks. 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 owners of Coworking Bansko Uwe and Irina are very friendly. 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.

                                    I love this place, the mountain town and the people. Not only the internet speed is great and the work environment is really good also we have lots of fun besides work. Most of the people stay for three month and more - this is really great! The community is what makes this place awesome and I always want to come back and miss it when travelling!

                                      May 2017

                                      I was looking for a nice little coworking space in the Bulgarian nature, as I'm not a big city kind of person, and after reading some really good reviews on different websites, I chose Bansko and the CoworkingBansko.com space. Everything was as promised: ultra-competitive prices, nice atmosphere, and nice people who will genuinely help you even for the things not directly related to the coworking space. Matthias and Uwe, heads of the CW space, are awesome at what they do: they care A LOT about their members. You will feel at home after 15 minutes with them. Irina is the third member of the managing team, and as a local she knows everything about Bansko and Bulgaria in general. She will make sure you don't miss an opportunity to learn about Bulgaria, the traditional events happening here, etc... I met my girlfriend here, we are living together and I can say driving from France to Bansko was one of the best decision in my life. The reason I'm here? Tax optimization. I'm taking advantage of the 10% corporate & 10% income tax. Feel free to come talk to me about this at my desk in Coworking Bansko, I know quite a lot about it. Finally, everything you need as a typical digital nomad is here: high-speed WIFI (150mbps), FREE coffee, patio area, 3d printer, meetup events every month etc... Coworking Bansko got a Facebook page where they answer all your question in no time. See you soon!

                                        May 2017

                                        The space is a well equipped office with everything a digital nomad needs. That's just incidental to being in a mountain lovers utopia though. White water, rock climbing, downhill biking, hot spas, forests, lakes, winding roads, canyons, vistas... I could go on but then I'd never get to the part where I mention that Bulgarian pricing lets you live like you're loaded when really, everything is just a lot cheaper than it is elsewhere.

The management team, Irina, Matthias and Uwe really sets the bar for how a Coworking space should operate. Awesome community, events and a great place to meet like-minded people! In the winter Bansko operates a great Ski resort and in the summer its heaven for nature lovers! Thank you guys, Looking forward to come back! Itay

                                            "Intimate coworking community in a ski resort"

                                              May 2017

                                              The space has quite a unique vibe due to the small scale . Matthias, Uwe and Irina put a lot of effort into maintaining a vibrant community and a lot of people tend to come back after they have been there! I have no experience with the summer period, but in the winter the ability to combine skiing with coworking is one of a kind! Highly recommended!

                                                Perfect place to get some work done in a small place close to an airport just a hop away from major European cities. Cheap awesome food! Overall nice quality of life to stay for a couple of months! Nice hotsprings, mountains, people ....! Go and give it a shot!

                                                  May 2017

                                                  I spent six weeks having productive work, lots of skiing and tons of fun in Co-working Bansko. Bansko location was beyond my expectations regarding atmosphere, hospitality, great food and general fun. Housing is. Very affordable, so it alows for a longer stay. Co-working space is well equipped with all amenities expected and a great WiFi. The atmosphere is very cozy and familiar and the stuff (Irina, Matthias and Use) manage to engage the communiti and create bonding. Thanks to that the social interaction is of a group of friends on a school trip. Definitely highly raccomanded.

                                                      May 2017

                                                      I was there at the start - for the first five months of Coworking Bansko, I even helped build the shelves and chairs and things. They have everything you need, and will go more than out of their way to make sure you settle in and can be productive. I spent 40 days on the mountain during my stay, and while it's a small resort it kept me occupied to improve my skiing and start to learn to snowboard. Bansko would also be fun during the summer for hikes and mountain biking and I plan to return at some point.

                                                        May 2017

                                                        I was in Bansko for a week. I liked the town and Coworking Bansko so much that I decided to move straight away. Matthias, Uwe and Irina were VERY helpful and I got the feeling this community is going to be huge soon! Enough said. PS: being Italian I expect a perfect espresso every time I'm in need of caffeine and, I must say, their coffee machine is AMAZING.

                                                          I <3 coworking and after being a member at different spaces for several years, it was about time to create my own coworking space the way i like to work: with amazing people around me, a productive environment with comfy chairs and super fast internet in a mountain resort. So I am a little bit biased, but if you don't think Coworking Bansko is one of the best spaces you have ever worked in, please let me know and we will get it there.
