With the meteoric rise of co-working spaces in the last half-decade, it’s inevitable that the next step is now co-living. You might be skeptical about privacy and unsavoury co-tenants – issues that have plagued the reputations of hostels and shared accommodations alike – but with growing demand comes more solutions to meet these problems.

What exactly sets these places apart? For one, they are increasingly competitive, which mean prices are great at the moment. They also foster a sense of community, through the aesthetics of common areas, members events, and has the convenience of hotel services. Many young, working professionals now turn to co-living as an alternative arrangement while they travel, boosting its viability as a networking opportunity as well.

Co-living is here to stay, and in a place like Bangkok, there’s no where more thriving. We take a look at five of the best the city has to offer!
