"Coworking Space Where You Feel Home at Work "

April 2017

Do you need to land in a coworking space where you feel warm welcomed, nobody staring at their computers only when you are trying to smile and make a friend? I had so many experiences when I arrived in coworking space and found everyone just too busy with their works and left you wondering how can I make a real gangs in this place? Hivearena is a recommended one if you want to have a community experience when you are landed in Seoul. Hyekyung and Jongjin are great host to welcome you in their space, feel like its your own home while you can focus on your work if you need too. PS : They always have good coffee in the kitchen, this is my favorite part :)

The Hive Arena co-working space is a great place to both work but also to make friends if you are new in the city! They have regular networking events and improvised restaurants / night-out with the other co-workers :)

"Community-focused co-working space in Seoul"

July 2016

I seek comfort, convenience, and community in a co-working space, and Hive Arena was everything I wanted! The space is led by a warm and welcoming team, ready to include you into their circle. The office is well-equipped with amenities, naturally lit, and frequented by smart and interesting people. The space hosts a variety of events and encourages networking. I am in love with the place, and I am so grateful to be a part of the Hive Arena community. I look forward to returning the next time I am in Seoul, and would absolutely recommend to anyone!

"It's really awesome place"

July 2016

Hivearena is not just a place to work. It's a place of real co-work! Besides comfortable facilities, including free beverages, you can meet amazing people. In Korea, the concept of co-working place is rather new. In this burgeoning business area, Hivearena is definitely a leader. Frankly speaking, other co-working space recently appeared equipped better and luxurious facilities. But in my opinion, they understand this business as real-estate business, not co-working business. In this respect, I'm definitely sure that Hivearena is the best co-working place in Korea. PS> I'm working in hivearena for 3 consecutive months.

"A place with a bunch of great people to mingle"

July 2016

When I first visited, they have been running the place only for 3 months. Obviously, there weren't many co-workers then but soon the numbers started growing and I have the opportunity to meet some very talented individual thanks to Hive Arena. I would definitely recommend the place if you are ever in Seoul and looking for a place to work and mingle with a bunch of people who actively ask you if you need any help. It has done a great deal for me and I am expecting to visit the place again very soon

"Tech for Good? Good people to cowork."

July 2016

I'd coworked several months(almost one year) at Hive Arena, I'd feel comfortable for good friends Jongjin and Hyekyung. They're very interested for Tech for good, and also had nice social networks with good tech guys and ladies, entrepreneurs, and startups in South Korea. I'm an entrepreneur experienced top-tier tech companies, M&A, IPO and exited in South Korea, but they're very helpful for me to find and connect some good partners and social networks.

It's an amazing place full of curious bright people. It was really helpful to meet locals with the same professional interests on my first day in Seoul, the owners invited me to launch and interesting conversations ensued. The place itself is mostly visited by the young urban crowd, the vibe is positive but not at all distractive.

"Hive Family"

July 2016

The Hive Arena is my home away from home. Seoul of course has AMAZING internet and the office is located in Gangnam, one of the best neighborhoods for nightlife. It’s a playful, comfortable, and yet productive environment. It is very accommodating to all of my needs, and I can accomplish significant work while I am there. The co-founders are extraordinarily lovely people that will make you feel like part of the Hive family. They have accomplished a familial environment that I yearn for at any coworking space. I highly recommend this unique space to anyone!

Hive arena is my top coworking space in Seoul as a foreigner. In Korea it is really hard to find English speaking people in coworking spaces because sometimes you feel bored and need some people to talk and relax. I'm also fan of their regular events, I had chance to meet with awesome people through these events. Keep up the good work guys.

"업무와 좋은 관계 형성을 동시에 할 수 있는 공간 "

July 2016

제가 하이브아레나를 알게 된 지는 약 9개월 정도가 되어 갑니다. 저는 1년에 24일을 사용하는 멤버쉽을 구매해서 사용하고 있지만, 제 사무실을 하이브아레나 안에 두고 싶을 정도로 이곳을 이용하는 사람들이 정말 좋습니다. 다양한 분야의 개발자, 디자이너, 사업자 분들이 모여 이루는 시너지는 멋진 아이디어를 만들어 냅니다. 물리적으로는 서울 강남에서 멀지 않은 선정릉역에서 도보로 약 5분 정도 거리에 있습니다. 강남역에서는 버스는 이용하면 약 20분이 소요됩니다. 도착해서 제일 먼저 만나세 되는 혜경씨와 종진씨는 친절한 안내와 공간에 계시는 분과 새로운 분들을 잘 매칭해 줍니다. 예를 들어, 코워커가 고민이 있다면 새로운 분들 중에 해결해 주실 수 있는 분이 오시면 소개해 주시곤 합니다. 또는 비슷한 생각을 가지고 있는 분들을 소개해 주시기도 하시죠. 개발자분들이나 노마드라면 한번쯤 들려볼만한 장소라고 생각합니다. 함께 의견을 나누면서 새로운 아이디어를 얻어 갈 수 있는 곳이니까요. 현재도 좋지만 앞으로가 더 기대되는 장소가 바로 하이브아레나입니다.

"Great place to work for the day in Seoul"

July 2016

I have worked from Hive Arena a couple of times, and each time it has been a really positive experience. The owners were really helpful to get me acclimated, introduced me to a few people who were working in the same industry, and we even went out to lunch together on the first day. I immediately felt at home and connected with my new "coworkers." There was a mix of English and Korean being spoken throughout the space, so language was not any problem either. The space itself is simple but nicely designed with chalkboard art on the walls and a very casual atmosphere.
