I didn't receive any discounts or benefits for writing this post. If you're a frequent traveller for work, or maybe you have flexible hours for part of the year, you'll probably find a living space useful. Living together generally involves having your own room and bathroom, and sharing common spaces with other digital nomads. Depending on where in the world you go, your outdoor living space will vary in terms of the type of accommodation, the speed of the WiFi connection and the price.
Think of them as if you were renting an apartment month after month, but that apartment is a room in a living space. Shared accommodation in living spaces offers countless benefits, ranging from cheaper rates on accommodations that are usually luxurious, to bringing together strangers to share experiences and ideas. Living spaces also offer a wide range of rental options: some offer multiple rental options and all residents live together at night, per week, and per month. Be that guy, do your part and do your part to keep the living space clean, tidy and pleasant to live in.
Selina had no idea that I would write a review about their CoLIVE package after my 3-month stay with them (in Selina Playa del Carmen and Selina Isla Mujeres) and a separate 1-month stay with CoLIVE in Selina Sayulita. It's a frustrating problem, as one of the biggest advantages of booking a Selina CoLiving package is access to a comfortable workspace. When I made the reservation, Selina didn't warn me about the problems related to the shared workspace, but I experienced it to the fullest during my stay at CoLive in Isla Mujeres. They have a huge selection of locations around the world, and while you can book a hostel in Selina for a few days as you would with any hostel or hotel, the real value is in their COlive and COlive Flex programs, which offer you discounts on longer stays and even the ability to pay a fixed rate and switch from one location to another in Selina.
I hope this Selina CoLiving review was helpful in deciding if your CoLIVE package is right for you. Together, these three factors (demographic changes and lifestyle factors, an evolving definition of work, and a responsive real estate market supported by investors who are taking advantage of reduced risk and rapid profits) have made the business models behind these coworking and living spaces much more attractive and able to meet the demand for physical locations where single workers can connect with others, achieve their professional goals and live the life they want.
