We know that coliving has gained popularity as a modern housing solution that combines community living with convenience. However, it is important to understand that coliving is not simply a revamped version of traditional hostels. While both options provide shared accommodations, they differ significantly in terms of purpose, design, and the overall experience they offer. Do you want you know why coliving is not the new hostel?? Keep reading till the end to find out 😉
It’s all about community…
Coliving spaces prioritize fostering a sense of community and collaboration among residents. Unlike hostels that primarily offer affordable lodging options for travelers, coliving spaces attract a diverse range of individuals, including digital nomads, remote workers, entrepreneurs, and professionals seeking a supportive living environment. The emphasis is on creating a community where residents can connect, collaborate, and learn from one another, often resulting in meaningful personal and professional relationships. In this way, once you arrive at a coliving you will meet like-minded people who see the world in a similar way you do and with whom you will be able to connect and generate deep bonds.

You will feel instantly at home…
Coliving spaces are designed to provide an elevated living experience. They offer a wide array of amenities and services that go beyond what traditional hostels provide. These can include fully furnished private rooms or shared apartments, well-equipped communal kitchens, comfortable lounges, dedicated workspaces, high-speed internet access, regular cleaning services, and even recreational facilities like gyms, rooftop gardens, and swimming pools. Coliving spaces prioritize comfort, convenience, and a seamless living experience for their residents.
Longer stays, deeper connection…
Unlike hostels that primarily cater to short-term travelers, coliving spaces often offer longer-term stay options. They provide the flexibility to stay for weeks, months, or even years, making them an attractive choice for digital nomads and remote workers who desire a stable home base while exploring new destinations. Coliving spaces create a sense of belonging and stability for residents, enabling them to build meaningful connections and establish a supportive network within the community. At Palma coliving we offer a minimum of 1 month stay at each destination. You can apply for your next stay here.
Curated Events and Workshops
Coliving spaces often organize curated events, workshops, and networking opportunities that foster personal and professional growth. These events can include skill-sharing sessions, wellness activities, guest talks by industry experts, networking nights, and cultural exchange programs. By facilitating these events, coliving spaces create an environment where residents can enhance their knowledge, acquire new skills, and connect with like-minded individuals, ultimately enriching their personal and professional journeys. At Palma coliving we host the following events:
- 1 tapas night dinner twice a month for all guests
- 3 yoga classes every week for all guests
- 1 Digital Nomads meet up organized by Palma coliving in a bar of each location open to all community
- 1 Digital Nomads barbeque organized and hosted at Palma coliving open to all community
Design and architecture focused on your workspaces
Coliving spaces prioritize thoughtful design and architecture to create spaces that blend functionality, comfort, and aesthetic appeal. The design of coliving spaces is often influenced by the needs and preferences of the target community. They may incorporate open-plan layouts, flexible spaces that can be adapted to different purposes, and a mix of private and communal areas that facilitate social interaction. The aim is to create an environment that encourages collaboration, creativity, and a sense of belonging. At Palmla coliving we worked together with Conscious coliving to bring the most optimized design to all of our spaces guaranteeing the best service to all our guests.
While coliving spaces and hostels both offer shared accommodations, it is important to recognize that coliving is not simply a new version of hostels. Coliving spaces focus on community building, provide a range of amenities and services, offer longer-term stay options, organize curated events and workshops, and prioritize thoughtful design. These aspects combine to create a unique living experience that caters to the needs of digital nomads, remote workers, and professionals seeking a supportive and collaborative environment. So, if you’re looking for more than just a place to sleep, coliving might be the ideal choice for you—a space where you can work, connect, and thrive.
