16 hostels for digital nomads

The days pass, but you continue to work from your boring studio in a corner of your house. And it’s there, in the middle of the day, when you imagine better views, perhaps the sound of the sea and new adventures that await you at the end of the day.

Working from home can become a new experience if you know how to choose the right place. Or, even better, if you decide to become a digital nomad from one of these 16 hostels where you can work remotely while continuing to travel the world.

πŸ“ MedellΓ­n, Colombia

If you are in the vibrant Colombian city of MedellΓ­n, Samarian Hostel becomes the best place to work remotely. Its director, Paolo, originally from Santa Marta, focuses this sanctuary of coworking towards all those freelance workers, from illustrators to writers, who seek to enjoy the Colombian giant without renouncing the comfort offered by the location in the residential neighborhood of Laureles, the vegetation and colors that invite to create new worlds and some death capuccinos to start the day with energy.
