Finding a place to live is now hassle-free as co-living providers are currently growing in Jakarta.

Technology has become an enabler for an easier lifestyle. Finding something we need is now easier than ever before, from purchasing food to looking for a place to live. For those looking for temporary housing in Jakarta, there are a bunch of offers ranging from house to apartment rent. Yet, you may need to try a new temporary residential concept that is currently trending in Jakarta: co-living.

What is co-living?

Co-living is an abbreviation from “communal living”. It is where you can rent a room to live with a group of adults under the same roof. The main concept of co-living is to share a space with others and create a community out of it. In Jakarta, co-living is a suitable option for those who want to reside in a casual, affordable place that enables flexibility and networking as well.

What are the benefits of co-living?

Co-living provides several benefits, some of them are:

  • Flexibility

Co-living offers flexibility in terms of finance and facility. A co-living space usually already provides each room with basic necessities such as a bedding set, wardrobe, desk and chair, and air conditioner. All you need is only a suitcase of clothes and you are good to go. Co-living also enables financial flexibility as you can pay the rent on a monthly basis.

  • Networking

Co-living residents coming from various backgrounds. As you will share a communal space with other residents, you will also get a chance to expand your networking and make more friends!
