"Free and creative atmosphere"

    June 2018

    The "start co-working" in Ho Chi Minh City 1st District is a beautiful residential area. External security was thorough, and in the case of long-term membership, fingerprint registration was free. Manager Marshall explained everything in detail. WiFi was very fast at 51.83 downloads and there was no limit to its availability. Most of the members were westerners and the atmosphere was free. It was impressive that the offline community was active.The "start co-working space" also has cafes, restaurants and co-living facilities.It is highly recommended if you want a free atmosphere.This place was like a 'Balinese Hubut' in the city center.

    "Good space and kind people"

      June 2018

      the place is very cozy. And rate of members is high by western people. They are friendly and kind. there are some tea and coffee. toilet is only one. The place has co-living space and small pool, too. when I visit there, the manager, Marshal introduce every space of it. He is very kind. Internet speed is higher than dreamplex that we already visit. however there is a insect in the coworking space. So some guy has tool for catching insects. and there are few chairs but they are uncomfortable. if you doesn't matter them, I think that the place is good for you.

      "Hand down the best Coworking space and community in Saigon"

        April 2018

        I've been working from Start for about 4 months now. This place feels like home for me. The community is thriving and one of the best parts of the space. The owner Martial truly cares about the community and holds events frequently to help us connect and learn from one another. We have daily lunches together, which is very convenient, delicious, and great for meeting new members. The meals are cooked by the coworking Chiefs and fresh ingredients are bought every morning to make the food. There is a common coworking space area, fixed desks on the 2nd floor and offices. The neighborhood around the coworking space is also very convenient with nice coffee shops, cheap restaurants, and pretty much everything you need. I've worked from many different coworking spaces around southeast Asia for the past 3 years, and I must say this place has the best community I've ever come across.

        "Great Place to Work with Strong Community"

          April 2018

          Start is a great place to work, and has a strong community. I'd highly recommend it if you not only want to get things done, but also are looking for a way to befriend other interesting people. Wi-fi is good, the environment is nice, there's free tea and coffee, and people are always very friendly :)! I'd also especially recommend Start's daily community lunches--the chef produces some amazing food (he's a former Master Chef runner-up) for incredibly cheap. We also often have interesting conversations at these lunches, so they're a fun way to get to know people. Would highly recommend Start to anyone looking for a coworking space with a community in Saigon!

          "An oldie but a goodie"

            March 2018

            I had a lovely time. Except for being a tiny bit old and worn out (it has been here since 2012), the place is terrific, with strong wifi, great location, nice yard, cute swimming pool, helpful staff. The staff is really trying their best to bring you the utmost convenience. The strong community, which they claim, is very evident here, with all the community lunches, events, workshops, etc. Thanks to these events at Start, I could make a lot of acquaintances, and a few friends. Though may not be the most important thing for a coworking space, but the amazing food they serve at Start is one of the best selling points for me.

            "Fantastic Community!"

              March 2018

              I spent a little over a month at Start while working remotely. Start puts a lot of focus on community, and I was made to feel welcome on my first day there. They have a daily home-cooked lunch available (when I was there it cost 50k), which is always delicious and offers a great opportunity to get to know your fellow co-workers. There are also monthly events organized by Start that were always a good time. I found the space itself to be conducive to productivity, and was glad that the A/C kept the space properly cooled, because I have a hard time working in hot conditions. The internet was always connected and I never had speed issues with it. Highly recommend!

              "Exceptional start up culture in a beautiful Villa"

                March 2018

                Start is the only Co working office in Saigon that is actively building a community of both expats and locals while hosting weekly parties and hosting meet ups by successful Vietnamese start ups. Take it from me- I did a day pass at just about every Coworking space to see which has the best environment, and hands down Start surpassed all others. It is a beautiful Villa, fast wifi, daily lunch, and has weekly events like I mentioned. Start is owned and operated by a great guy who will be your friend and mentor and help you get situated in the city. Highly recommend this amazing place!

                3 Thank Derek

                "Excellent space with a great community and founders"

                  January 2018

                  Had a productive day at the space and learnt a lot about the Vietnamese startup community, thanks to Marshal and his wonderful team! Would definitely visit again when I am in town and join their community lunch. Thanks again for having me around, and the pool and floating unicorn definitely brightened up my (long) day. All the best to the co-workers' ventures and it's been such an inspiration talking to all of you. Would recommend anyone who is looking for a cosy, family vibe in the startup scene in HCMC. They host awesome events too, stay tuned and join their meet ups and workshops :)

                  "Very friendly staff, great wifi "

                    January 2018

                    Start offers a very friendly atmosphere, with excellent staff, daily community lunches and frequent events. The shared space was comfortable and air-conditioned with great wifi. The main seating area could get a bit crowded on some days, but there was always enough space for everyone and areas to spread out if you need to step out to make a call, etc. There is an outdoor space in the courtyard by the pool and another table on the roof (though it can be a bit hot as this is Saigon, after all). The location in District One was very convenient and close walking distance to good places for lunch, coffee and smoothies.

                    "The best community and a great place to work!"

                      January 2018

                      I worked one month at Start Coworking Campus & Community and it was a real pleasure. As soon as I arrived, the people made me feel absolutely welcome and answered every question I had. You can test out the office for the first day before you decide. After the first day, I decided to use their co-working space for the whole month (they also provide co-living facilities). I always had a stable Wi-Fi connection (I recommend cable internet for five-person conference calls, but I bring my own cable everywhere), they provide standing desk areas, and enough coffee and tea to stay productive ;) One of the best things is the daily organised and freshly made lunch. A great way to get to know everybody and socialize. The lunch itself varies between different styles (fusion, western, traditional, etc.), which made every day a tasty and healthy day. Next to that, they organise several monthly events like tech talks and social drinks, always with great finger food. These also really helped me to get to know new people and network. I would recommend Start Coworking Campus & Community to everybody visiting or living in Ho Chi Minh City.

                      "One of my favorite coworking spaces in the world!"

                        November 2017

                        I've been to many coworking cities this year. And I always check out the top coworking spaces in each city. I was in Ho Chi Minh City last week, and I visited several of the top rated coworking spaces. This place was my favorite- and is one of the best I've visited anywhere. One of the reasons is that they serve an optional, delicious communal lunch M-F, for about US $2 a meal. That way, you immediately get to meet most of the other digital nomads working there. Great way to break the ice and to make contacts. The digital nomads I met were from all over the world, have spent a lot of time in HCMC, and were working on a wide variety of projects. The "campus" consists of 2 adjoining homes, on an interesting side street in District 1. Comfortable ambiance, and charming people running the place who make you feel welcome. Don't miss this place if you are looking for a good coworking space in HCMC!

                        2 Thank JEFF

                        "Cool coworking place and fellows with friendliness and openness"

                          September 2017

                          Highlight of my visit was good food and nice spaces, especially the proof top area is pretty enjoyable for working. I didn't have time to try open place on the ground with swimming pool, but it seems to be a very nice place with many people. Toilet needs improvement though in order to make it more comfortable. I will absolutely join next time I'm in Saigon.

                              Start Sai Gon is such a great place to work. Eventhough Start does not provide the best facilities but it definitely gives you the best service. The staff is super nice and friendly ; I can get the 24/7 access, which is a big advantage of this place. So I would come back again and recommend Start to everyone

                                July 2016

                                The co-working space is located in a quite narrow alley, in the middle of District 1, very easy to find with many good restaurants and food venders around. The room is big enough for 10, free meeting room for member. The manager and assistants are very friendly and helpful. Fair price with 24-hour access. Great events every month for membership such as BBQ, Drink after work, etc. Will come back frequently
