Co-working culture has been growing steadily across the world. It’s no surprise that Cape Town, South Africa’s more laid-back answer to Silicon Valley, is at the forefront of some of the most amazing co-working offices to rent.
Office space in Cape Town is at a premium and, while traffic congestion is so bad now that companies are being actively encouraged to promote remote working, it’s good to know there’s a space you can call home.

What you might consider ‘the best’ co-working office space to rent depends entirely on your needs. Are you looking for style? Or is cost your first consideration? Maybe views are all that matter to you, or perhaps you’re just keen on convenience. Perhaps you’re looking for a back-up spot to go to when load shedding hits.
Whatever you’re after when it comes to renting Cape Town office space, the benefits that come with co-working spots is universal. You don’t have to worry about maintenance or internet. Just pitch your laptop and your team and off you go.
