"My review of @CAT Penang"

    November 2019

    They have a wide and casual co-working space and they are in the HERITAGE Zone. I like the ambiance choices we can have, working in a quiet zone or do our networking at the pantry area.

              "One of The Best In Asia"

                July 2019

                One of the best coworking space in Asia. Meet interesting people, big desks, comfortable office desks, sea view, good parking spot for motorbikes/scooters and cars, hidden elevator, 24 hours open. Good Aircon. Lockers available. Very affordable, maybe one of the cheapest in South East Asia, central location, friendly staff. Internet is good. Best part is there is a cafè downstair that servers homemade organic foods like slow food hand made pizza in a wood fire oven, and lasagna, cakes, so you can have an amazing & healthy lunch, also this cafè offers wifi, so you can work there sometimes. And there is also a balcony/smoking area with a nice sea view. Really suggested.

                  "Best co-working space in Penang: 24/7, great events, free coffee"

                    May 2019

                    I spent several months working here, one of the best co-working spaces I encountered on my travels! For just 300 RM a month you can use this space 24/7, so no matter your working hours, there are no restrictions. You also get an allowance to use the private meeting rooms, so much in fact that you'll probably never use it all. Their website is very modern, so you can pay there with credit card or PayPal and conveniently book meeting rooms. The staff is super friendly, kind, and very helpful. They organize many events, whether it's just having lunch with your co-workers so you can get to know them more or bigger events where you will gain knowledge about a particular topic. I requested and hope in the future there will be movie screenings. As a co-worker, you get free cookies and coffee. There is a basket with other snacks, ramen noodles, and pizza like bread for which you put money in a jar. Admittedly, it can be a great temptation to eat too much sugary stuff, but they also sell delicious oranges sometimes.

                    "Coworking Space that Connect The People"

                      January 2019

                      Coworking spaces are everywhere in the cities, but what make Acat different from the other coworking spaces is the elite community team are really putting efforts to connect the coworkers to others and constantly feeding great and useful knowledges to the coworkers and people on Penang. Acat constantly engage the successful entrepreneurs from different part of the worlds to provide important values and knowledges in the spaces that benefit to the coworkers, and events are open to public too! A great environment and supportive community are important to produces successful startups and businesses, and Acat fulfilled these 2 core elements. These are the reasons why so many successful entrepreneurs, freelancers, startups and SMEs come from Acat.

                      "ACAT: A place for Affordable, Creative, Acknowledged, Talents"

                        January 2019

                        ACAT is an amazing space for freelancers, start-ups, etc. The community is equipped with loads of resources in terms of very diverse talents. You can find people with almost any skill set here. Technology, design, education, content, etc. Drop by anytime even if only to just say Hi. People here are friendly and everyone is welcome at ACAT. I have been renting a space in ACAT since May 2018. There were some issues with the WIFI towards the end of 2018, which the administrators have resolved in January 2019. All in all, this is a great starting point for businesses and freelancers alike. Hope to see you here.

                          aCAT Penang offers great value for the coworkers. They have stable internet, various perks and benefits, spacious common area, comfortable & productive working environment with all basic office amenities (meeting rooms, pantry, printing machine). It is located at the center of Georgetown with great access to public transportation, hostel, local food stall, restaurant and banks. It is near to some famous tourist spots such as Little India, Penang Street Art, famous historical buildings, etc. Besides, the management team constantly organizes community activities & technology/entrepreneurship related events and workshops. It is a great place to meet people from different background! Great community involvement!

                          "An Awesome Co-Working Space That I Will Always Recommend To My Friends"

                            March 2018

                            A wide diverse community at @CAT Penang and it just feels like my second home. With the vibrant and rich heritage building, it makes the working environment unique. Monthly Coffee Talk Sessions with various interesting topics on every 1st Thursday of the month and many Start-up Programs to help new Start-up Entrepreneurs in their journey. Also quite and peaceful with down-to-earth surroundings that makes you feel closer to the environment as compared to those new modern designed offices. My first preference will always be @CAT whenever in Penang and I would strongly recommend to my friends and famaly. Try it and you will know what i am experiencing ....

                              March 2018

                              A spacious coworking space built in a heritage building. At least two community events in a month, co-workers are friendly and helpful. There are entrepreneurs, startups, designers, programmers working here. The internet is stable and fast. Located in the heart of George Town, public transports are easily accessible, hostels are nearby. Lots of cafes around, good restaurants are within walking distance (don't forget to try the Indian food!). Space and the desks are spacious, people do not make noise in the space, good environment to be productive and focus on your work. There is an elevator at the backyard too.

                              "great space, warm atmosphere and community spirit"

                                March 2018

                                The cost is very competitive especially for the monthly hot-desk plan. It is an open plan office with plenty of quiet corners and meeting room spaces. Miki and Zoey are very dedicated and organise regular activities like hackatons and conferences with local and regional companies. The space is open 24 hrs and offers a great wifi connection. Day and night, if you are working US or European timezones. It's in a very central location. The other members were a friendly community of local remote workers, with a good mix of ever-returning expats, programmers, designers, digital marketers. Group lunch (a.k.a. business lunch) was a recurring 'event'. And the great thing, there's loads of very nice and varied food stalls a block away, nice Chinese and Indian eateries across the road. Going back very soon! If only monthly accommodations were more easily available.

                                  July 2017
