Hoi An, Vietnam
" Strikes a good balance between work & community "
By now I've been working in a various kinds of coworking spaces. A lot of them are strongly focused on work productivity and business events at the expense of a personal connections, or the other way round. Some are tiny and thus lacks a community while some are large highly professional spaces that lack the personal touch. I love Hub Hoi An because it's somewhere in the middle. The Hub has a good size and great people, starting with Sarah, its founder. She takes great care of the community and its members. The Hub has a laid-back atmosphere where you can make connections even if you're more introvert. The daily lunch is joined by many of its members and a great way to get in touch. It's also a good meal for a good price directly at your workplace. That's one of those things that foster community but also keep you productive. The Hub is located in Cam Châu, which is located between the city center and the beach area. It's a quiet part of Hội An that is surrounded by rice fields on three sides and the Hub is located next to one of them. Just take a two minutes walk into the rice fields in the afternoon to enjoy a great sunset. The community extends beyond the workplace with various events. The weekly dinner for example is a fantastic way to get to know each other and also great restaurants all across town (check out Ganesh!). In general you can get tons of good advice about the town and things around to explore because members tend to be a mix of nomads and expats. The WiFi is good and Vietnam's internet usually is too. You can order great food right to your desk, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free & low carb! There's one thing I'd love to see in the future: proper office chairs. Stability/sittings balls can also be a good start. The Hub is not alone in this though. I see that issue in most coworking spaces. Coworkers often spend many hours for many days a week sitting at a desk, so chairs have an impact on posture and health. On the plus side the Hub does have some standing desks! After almost 5 months in Hoi An and at the Hub I'm leaving Vietnam for now. However I'm already looking forward for my next stay in the winter and to see some familiar faces again!

"Everything is awesome"
Really great space. Comfortable, cool, friendly staff, great food, quiet, and really nice community. They even have pet fish and snails to stare at when you need a break. Literally nothing negative to say.
"My review of Hub Hoi An"
Hub Hoi An, first of all, is managed and run by few of the most awesome people you'd ever meet in Hoi An, Vietnam. Everything about this place, including the facilities, the location, the membership fees, the events, and the community have been the best I've ever experienced in the whole country. And this is a big statement coming from a person who has lived in Vietnam for a decade now. I have never met any person in town who has been disappointed with Sarah and her team. And I believe that they deserve to be recognized all over.
