The Best Coworking Spaces In Austin (I Visited 5)

Austin Coworking Spaces

I was in town in October of 2023 to find the best coworking space in Austin.

  • I researched every coworking space in Austin (downtown and close by)
  • I contacted 8 spaces
  • I visited and reviewed 5

After researching and seeing the coworking scene in Austin myself, here are my recommendations (grouped by my interaction with each). Click a link below to navigate to the category you’d like to see:

Spaces I visited | Contacted but didn’t visit | Chose not to visit but still look good

But, why should you trust Buildremote’s coworking reviews?

Coworking Space ReviewAs you search for coworking spaces, you’ll find multiple articles like the “18 best coworking spaces in X!” and “24 best spaces in Y.” Here’s the truth…

  • None of the writers have ever visited any of the spaces
  • Some are coworking space directories and only include ones listed on their site
  • Others have reviews, but they always say 5.0 stars

Then, there’s my coworking review method. Whenever I visit a new city, I…

  • Research every coworking space in the city
  • Contact 5-10 top candidates
  • Visit and review 3-5

I’ll always note the ones I visited versus chose not to. I’ll always show my average pictures (you can get the professional shots from their websites), and I’ll always give an unbiased review.

Austin Coworking Spaces I Contacted But Couldn’t Visit

In this section, you’ll find the coworking spaces I wanted to visit but it never happened. I contacted each of these spaces, but didn’t visit for one of these reasons:

  • I never heard back
  • We couldn’t find a time that worked for both of us
  • It’s too far out of town (compared to the reviews I already booked)

These are all worthy of being the best coworking space in Austin, but I couldn’t assess them head-to-head with the ones I visited personally.


The Cathedral

Why I didn’t visit: I double booked and couldn’t find another time (completely my fault). Kat, the Community Manager, was responsive, nice, and helpful. 

  • Address: 2403 E 16th St. Austin, TX 78702
  • What Stands Out:
    • Refurbished 1930s church
    • Plenty of free parking
    • Unique events: It doubles as an event space and has food, art, and music events regularly
  • Pricing: Standard coworking package starts at $250/month

Visit The Cathedral’s website.



Createscape Coworking In Austin TX

Why I didn’t visit: I booked a time, but then cancelled. I had five bookings already in downtown Austin.

  • Address: 701 Tillery St #12, Austin, TX 78702
  • What Stands Out
    • Free parking
    • Onsite gym (requires additional membership)
    • Longevity: Createscape has been around since 2014 (many “hot” Austin coworking spaces have gone out of business)
  • Pricing: Open desk membership starts at $250/month

Visit Createscape’s website.


Vessel Coworking

Why I didn’t visit: I reached out but never heard back. It’s not necessarily a negative – some spaces don’t want to be reviewed.

  • Location: 500 E St Johns Ave Suite 2.620, Austin, TX 78752
  • What Stands Out:
    • Your first day is free (try it out before you pay)

Spaces I Chose Not To Visit (But Still Deserve A Mention)

The following coworking spaces look good, but for several reasons, I chose not to visit. But, they still might fit your needs. These are the reasons I usually choose not to visit:

  • Too niche for my audience (it’s an incubator more than a coworking space, it’s too far out of town, it focuses just on the food industry, etc.)
  • It’s a chain and I’ve visited their spaces in other cities

Capital Factory

Why I didn’t visit: This place looks amazing, but it seems more like an incubator than a coworking space. Do your own research on this one.

A quick note from my research: This very well might be the best coworking space in Austin. But it if you just need a place to put your head down and work for a few days per week, this won’t be your choice. If you have a tech startup and need funding, mentorship, and a network, you might not find a better option anywhere.

  • Location: 701 Brazos St, Austin, TX 78701
  • What Stands Out:
    • An ecosystem of entrepreneurs, investors, and mentors
    • Hundreds of events
    • Multiple spaces in Austin
  • Pricing: Unknown

Visit Capital Factory’s website.


Wework – 600 Congress

Why I didn’t visit: I’ve seen a number of Weworks, so I typically don’t visit and review them. 

  • Location: 600 Congress Ave., Austin TX 78701
    • This is directly across the street from Common Desk (read my review of that space for location details)
  • What Stands Out:
    • The network of Weworks (work from any location)
    • Busy, fun area on 6th Street (but also a downside for parking)
    • Great roof deck/balcony
  • Pricing: WeWork All Access (daily coworking access from any location) starts at $299

Visit this location on Wework’s website.


Spaces – 111 Congress

Why I didn’t visit: I considered visiting, and it looks nice, but I chose to reach out to eight places and this would’ve been my ninth or tenth option.

  • Location: 111 Congress Ave. STE 500, Austin, TX 78704
  • What Stands Out:
    • The network of Spaces (work from any location)
    • Parking spots available
  • Pricing: Coworking from any of their 3,000 locations starts at $269/month
