Your Guide To (Almost) All The Co-Working Spaces In Klang Valley & Their Prices

The co-working space phenomenon isn’t just a startup buzzword anymore. Even large corporations are buying into this modern outlook on offices.

After all, it’s nice to have an office space that already has all of the required amenities provided and maintained, which removes the hassle from bedraggled managers or bosses.

And as many believers of the co-working spaces have touted, it’s a great way to build connections with individuals outside of your normal officemates in a setting that can easily lead to business partnerships.

In many ways, it’s also the great equaliser for everyone from freelancers, startups, SMEs to even large corporations to exist together in the same space.

If you’re a believer in what co-working spaces have to offer, but are unsure about where to start, these are some charts that compare the prices and facilities of co-working spaces in Klang Valley, with their rates and a short description of what they have to offer.

We’ve included as many as we could find, as long as they had rates available online.

Hot Desk

The hot desk allows the more extroverted among us to network outside of our usual comfort zones.

It also allows flexibility in terms of location on a monthly, to even daily basis. Generally, the hotdesk is ideal for companies that are just starting out, or freelancers and digital nomads to find a temporary home in.

Fixed Desk

The dedicated desk is similar to a hotdesk, but it allows you the luxury of being able to set up on a set table just for you, rather than move around at the communal hotdesk area.

In some co-working spaces, the fixed desks are even cordoned off into a more private space compared to the hotdesk area.

It’s a decent middle ground for those who are looking for a similar vibe to the hotdesk, while still needing a space to call home.

Diverse community which is a walk away from restaurants and malls.

Most of them also offer event spaces, though the rates for that tend to vary depending on time, so we have not included them.

As a general summary, you get what you pay for. The higher-priced co-working spaces either come with better in-house perks, or are housed in a prime working locations (such as proximity to the city center).

The industry has really taken off, and it’s still growing—quite a few of the spaces listed only opened in the past 12 months.

We looking forward to seeing how much more the local landscape will change and evolve even as this lifestyle of co-working offices grows in popularity.
