The best Málaga coworking spaces


There are a few coworking spaces in Málaga to choose from, but which are the best?

It turns out that finding a coworking space in Málaga that met our criteria was very difficult!

Top Choice: The Living Room Coworking

The Living Room Coworking space in Málaga is open 24/7 and used by people from all over the world who work across a number of disciplines.

There’s a range of places for you to work and enough amenities to take a break, like a ping pong table. Plus, there’s a terrace if you like to work in the sunshine.

One of the big selling points is the community and events on offer. It has glowing reviews and some very positive tagged posts on Instagram.

You can book a free trial day before you sign up for a membership – but unfortunately, it was fully booked when we tried to visit, so we’ve been added to the waitlist.

We thought the Boomerang subscription offered the best value with 80 hours of coworking over three months for €200. It’s cheaper if you want to have 80 hours per month (the Roadtripper package at €160 pcm).

You can also pay as you go, but we don’t think that offers good value. One hour is €5, but you’d be better off buying a coffee for €2.60 – €3 and using a WiFi elsewhere.

Málaga Coworking Spaces We Didn’t Consider

Innovation Campus

Innovation Campus didn’t make our shortlist because it seems lacking in community and events – the only thing on offer was a Thursday lunch. But that’s reflected in the price, as it’s much cheaper than TLR.

It has four locations:

It’s worth mentioning prices exclude VAT and the website doesn’t have an easy way to book a free trial. We haven’t visited any of these coworking offices.

La Aduana Coworking

One of the most centrally located coworking spaces in Málaga is La Aduana, which is just between the Cathedral and the park. It offers 24/7 access and a dedicated coworking desk for €160 pcm +VAT, which includes coffee, beer, access to a terrace and meeting rooms you can book.

We didn’t shortlist La Aduana because although it looks professional and like a great place to focus on work, there’s less of an emphasis on networking and community events. The blog and their tagged instagram posts are mainly in Spanish, so it’s perhaps a better option for someone who’s a full-time worker and a native Spanish speaker.

Metropolitan Design Lab

Another coworking space in Málaga that looks more catered towards local workers rather than international nomads is Metropolitan Design Lab. The website is Spanish-only and doesn’t seem to have a community focus, so we didn’t shortlist it.

However, MDL Málaga is a well-priced option if you’re a Spanish speaker who wants to focus on work. It’s €140 for full-time access during the week.

Grow Working

If you’re looking for a coworking space in Málaga that you can access 24/7 and have a dedicated desk with access to meeting rooms for 12 hours included in the cost, Grow Working is a great option. You can request a free trial day to explore the office before you sign up, too.

It didn’t make our shortlist because it doesn’t have a community feel, which is essential for us.

Other coworking spaces in Málaga

There are more coworking spaces that we discounted from our research, including:

Our Málaga coworking plans

The only coworking space in Málaga that caught our eye was The Living Room, but since it’s full, we decided to stay flexible and work from coffee shops and cafes and meet up with other nomads on occasion.

How to cowork without an office in Málaga

You don’t need an expensive membership to work remotely in Málaga and meet other people. We found that working from cafes was a good option – and more affordable than coworking spaces!

We’re in Málaga for roughly 35 working days, and we want to work for at least a few hours outside the Airbnb for around 20 days (when we won’t have a lot of calls).

The Boomerang model at The Living Room would give us four hours a day if we went over 20 days in the three-month period, costing €10 per day. However, a coffee costs €2.60-3, so it is much cheaper to just buy a drink and work from a cafe instead.

The only downside to this plan is that it doesn’t help you to make any friends!

We joined a local coworking group one day and met some very nice people – but the location was too far away and the WiFi was really unreliable. It also attracted some people who weren’t too motivated to work, so it didn’t create a very focused atmosphere. For sociable digital nomads without deadlines, it would be a nice way to meet like-minded people.
