"A fantastic space"

    May 2019

    I'm so pleased with my time here. I love a quiet space to work and the quiet room is excellent, the internet speed didn't let me down. The phone booths are also really nice for calls. The hosts are super friendly and helpful. Will definitely use this space again when visiting Ottawa.

    "HIGHEST SATISFACTION RATING TO COWORKLY"

      October 2018

      Having worked in multiple co-working spaces over the past 25 years (Victoria BC, Vancouver BC, Ottawa ON, Toronto ON, Rochester MI, Tampa FL, Chantilly VA, Washington DC, etc) this is the most co-worker friendly location Ive had the pleasure of working in - where the owner / operator & staff are uber friendly & helpful. The interior design is modern while having 'homey' touches. Furniture is well-designed & practical The amenities such as meeting rooms, quiet spaces, sound studio, & flexible meeting areas are second-to-none. Rounding the whole package, obsite parking is good & Kudos to you Maher & Victoria...!!!

      "I liked it right away and became a full time member."

        August 2018

        What can I say that hasn't already been said? Spacious, bright, tastefully appointed, clean, welcoming, affordable parking (5$ for the day), sit / stand desks, free espresso, large refrigerator to keep your lunch, weekly catered lunch and learn and a great diverse community of members. Maher and Victoria go out of their way to make sure we are productive and successful. For example, when I was issued a parking ticket due to an error (I had used the online system therefore my car had no parking receipt on the dashboard), Maher saved me the hassle of going city hall and dispute the ticket. He took care of getting the ticket cancelled and brought the issue to the attention of the parking company to make sure this would not happen again. When Victoria found out one of the members had just received his Canadian citizenship, she made a card that we all signed and brought in a cake to celebrate. You owe it to yourself to come over and give it a try.

        "Amazing Coworking Space"

          July 2018

          I love Coworkly! Everyone is great! The owner Maher and business manager Victoria are so welcoming and attentive. It is a respectful workspace with the opportunity to connect with a great group of entrepreneurs. There are communal working areas as well as individual desks for full time members. They even have a nap / meditation room! There are two meeting rooms that can be booked for private or group meetings. I know that the owner is currently working on expanding the space as well. I'm thrilled as I know that the more people that know about this place, the busier it will get. I have really enjoyed being a member.

          "Raises the bar"

            July 2018

            Amazing space. Bright, clean, and impressive. I host plenty of meetings here in the boardrooms and my clients are continually impressed. The layout of the areas is really well thought out and flexible, and there's plenty of private and semi private office space up for grabs on a monthly basis. Chromecasts on all the televisions, strong wifi, and great coffee! There's a nook for reading, standing desks with ergonomic chairs for the regulars and there's always plenty of networking to be had. There's a stage for livestreaming with cameras, and it's in an area of town under rapid growth. Highly recommended, join us!

            "Finally, an exceptional shared workspace in the East end that does everything right. This place just gets it."

              July 2018

              Coworkly has everything you need to make the move from your home office to a remote, shared environment. Fast internet up and down, beautifully lighted modern workspace, a well-stocked kitchen, printer/scanner/shredder, and dedicated meeting rooms as well as multiple private areas for short phone conversations. I visited, and became a full-time member the next day, giving me 24/7 access to the office, even on the weekends. The desks and chairs can be raised/lowered to my desired height, filing cabinets are available to store my test equipment or documents, and the desk area is dedicated, allowing me to leave a monitor and other peripherals here full-time. The staff is exceptional. They are completely dedicated to creating the most productive shared work environment for their members and guests. Any issues I had, technical or otherwise, were resolved immediately. Parking is easy, and the location is perfect if you're East of downtown. Forget hopping between coffee shops or the library, Coworkly solves every issue of working remotely, and they do it at a great price (coffee included).

              "Seamless substitute work environment - perfect!"

                July 2018

                Coworkly has every office comfort and convenience you'll need! Really, all you need to bring is your laptop and favourite, lucky pen. It is decked out with a full kitchen, plenty of office space and equipment, and even meeting rooms. It was a treat to be working outside of home, especially in an environment that enabled me to deep dive into my grueling workload with minimal distractions. And the wifi delivered the results I needed - it kept me connected all day with my colleagues and supported access to the web portals to submit my work on time. Plus, being new, it's immaculately clean and tidy!

                "Comfortable, well appointed facility at a good price"

                  July 2018

                  Joined two weeks ago. Have a full time membership with a dedicated desk area, comfortable ergonomic chair, and a filing cabinet that locks so I can leave things overnight. The Wifi and printer work well. Common areas and meeting rooms spacious and well lit. The space has numerous windows with both natural and over head lighting. Small, well designed kitchen area is very functional. Full-time members allowed access to the space on weekends. Helpful owner and manager on-site to assist should the need arise. Buses are easily accessible in this area and parking available at a reasonable rate. So far am finding this a very convenient and pleasant place to work out of.

                  "Friendly, comfortable, efficient, easy"

                    July 2018

                    I have worked from the Coworkly for about a month now and am enjoying it. It is the right balance of being surrounded with friendly people, but at the same time easy to focus on my work. What stood out most to me about this place is 'ease'. It was easy to register, easy to set up a comfortable work space, easy to get the information I need, easy to make suggestions to the receptive staff who work hard to ensure that everyone feels comfortable and at home. The services are reliable. One risk of working from home is losing a day's work due to connection issues. Coworkly has built in redundancy; if things do down here, it is likely a much wider issue. I found it easy to sign up as the level of commitment is low which I appreciated. Having worked here for a month, I don't plan on going anywhere for a while. Thanks Coworkly!

                    "Great atmosphere, top-of-the-line equipment, awesome people, sense of community"

                      June 2018

                      The title says it all. The owner put a lot of effort into this place. I recently signed-up and haven't regretted it one bit. I have met many like-minded entrepreneurs and ambitious go-getters, and we all mesh together like a team of co-workers. Some of the amenities include a stage for "TED-like" presentations, mounted-camera equipment for online broadcasting, a sound room, class rooms, two large boardrooms to impress your clients, and the style and decor is very modern. You can work in the common space, find a quieter working area, or rent a full closed-door office. If you are like me and you love working from home, but you miss occasionally talking to humans and sharing ideas (or lunch) with others, then I highly recommend you take a tour. Once you meet Maher, you will see right away that he cares about the business and the people that come here.

                      "I wish I knew sooner!"

                        June 2018

                        I have no complaints. Great location in an up and coming, yet colourful neighbourhood. Coworkly is a well maintained and positive work environment with everything you need to get it done. My favourite features are the library chair zone, the wood top family tables near the windows as well as the call room in the back for a little privacy. Coworkly is a fairly new space, but is destined to be popular as it's the only co work space in the area. Don't hesitate to set up and time to come and see for your self, I wish I knew sooner!

                        2 Thank Matt

                        "Bright and Friendly"

                          June 2018

                          I've been coworking here for a few months and really enjoy it. The space is modern and quiet. The staff are proactive and helpful. At this stage it's early days so the space isn't full yet. This will likely change in the coming months as people discover this gem. It's the only coworking space in the east end of Ottawa so it draws both from downtown and from the east. Thanks Maher for what you are doing for the community. For food: - check out "Bobby's Table" one block over for a great smoked meat - Quelque Chose Pâtisserie for their macarons - The Great Canadian Poutinerie for their poutine

                          "My go to office-away-from-home"

                            June 2018

                            I've been a full time member of Coworkly for three months now, since they opened. It's grown a bit over the last few months, although not so much that it's crowded, loud, and distracting. Maher, the owner, is one of the nicest people ever, and takes feedback super seriously and looks to the members to guide what he does with the space. I really couldn't be happier here – I did deduct two stars from "location" because Vanier isn't a neighbourhood for everyone – it's a bit rough around the edges and is in the process of being economically developed. I've never felt even remotely unsafe or anything, but Coworkly really is a diamond in the rough: there's really not a whole lot of great spots to visit around it. I also deducted one star from "social and community" because it is a very small, tight knit community: if you're looking to meet a ton of new, interesting people, what you'll find instead is a *small* group of new, interesting people who care about what you're working on and how they can help.

                            2 Thank Blair

                            "Great place & friendly staff"

                              June 2018

                              Working @Coworkly is always pleasant. The owner is very kind and communication is easy. Free unlimited coffee, occasional free lunches and a great place to meet with other professionals. Love the location as it is outside of downtown core which gives access to better and cheaper/free parking. There's a slack account where all the members can chat + staff can be contacted directly via the app! WIFI is always available and I have not encounter any issues since I signed up. Toilets are super clean ;) The whole space is also very well maintained. I would suggest one more thing to make it even better and that would be more comfortable chairs.
