Mostly IT companies are based at Workstation, an arty coworking space in Moscow. Fit for a younger crowd, it is tucked away near the leafy green Neskuchny Sad Park and garden. With a library reading room and a roster of regular residents, this is a place to get comfortable. Chill out in the bean bag room with round tables and large ceiling-high windows opening up to big leafy trees. There is a coffee machine, cooler and vending machine with snacks.

Founded by Yury Krylov, an economist, the vibe has been noted to be more like a university than corporate chic. The space has long hardwood tables lined with lamps for late night coworking – it is open 24 hours, seven days a week. You can cowork at Workstation for 650 rubles a day or 4,000 rubles a week or 13,000 a month. Nightowl friendly.


Far from your typical coworking space, Atelier is a ‘co-sleeping’ hostel with a calm coworking space. Deep in the heart of Moscow, it is just steps away from the infamous Red Square. “We wanted to make a hostel that would be different from all those we have in Moscow,” said Zara Malikova, one of the co-founders. “So we opened our very small three-room hostel which has a common room that works as a co-working space.” The first guests at Atelier were people who came to Moscow to work and stayed in the hostel until they could find a place of their own.

A community has formed and guests quickly become friends. “No one wants to leave,” said Malikova, so the hostel is closed for short bookings. Guests are interviewed before moving in. The organizers are studying fashion design and half of the residents work in fashion, styling, theatre directing and designing. Coworking is simply the by-product of living in the Atelier. No membership fee required but there is rent for the hostel. Art and design workshops are in the works in a School of Design to launch this fall.


Les is a cozy and sweet coworking space that combines the art of coffee with coworking. Designed exclusively for 30 people, the two-room coworking space is like anything but an office space. With exposed brick walls, minimalist furniture and fold-up chairs, this place is perfect for creative freelancers wanting to chill out with a cappuccino. The stunning view of old Moscow outside the windows will sparkle up any Skype conversation. Rates start at 400 rubles a day and the business book selection is rated to be pretty good. Their events include speed dating, a cinema club and coffee events (so you can get wired up and wireless).
