Best places to work from in Malmö

Looking for a new place to work from in Malmö? Here’s a list of my favorite co-working spaces, cafés, professional spaces, and other spots that I’ve discovered in Malmö.

BEST CO-WORKING SPACES

Box Space

My favorite place in Malmö. For just 1900 SEK/month you get 24/7 access to this great spot right by Gustav Adolfs Torg in central Malmö. Tea/coffee included, great WiFi, calm and friendly atmosphere, printer, and a conference room. Great value for money. The space just recently opened so be sure to check it out if you’re on the lookout for a new place.

Cons: If it wasn’t for the hard chairs this place would be perfect for me. It would be nice if there were some cushions at least.

Minc

One of the core startup locations in Malmö, and a great friendly spot to meet people, grab some lunch/coffee, or get some work done. Free tea/coffee + there’s a decent lunch restaurant in the building.

Cons: WiFi reliability/speed isn’t great. The open-space area can get pretty noisy. So be sure to find a quiet corner or bring some noise-cancelling headphones if you need to focus.


BEST PROFESSIONAL SPACES

House of Ada

A very cosy and modern space in central Malmö. If you’re looking for a quiet professional space with proper desks and chairs and very fast WiFi then this is definitely one of the best options. Their full-time membership costs 2950 kr/month, which feels like a pretty good deal.

Cons: Not suitable for short-term membership.

United Spaces Malmö

A high-end, modern, and well-designed workspace that’s cozy, quiet, and comfortable — and the staff is super friendly. If you’re looking for quality facilities and infrastructure then this place is probably as good as it gets. There’s a large open lounge area, flex office areas, private office rooms, kitchen, lots of meeting rooms, and phone booths. Membership also includes unlimited tea/coffee, and fruit, breakfast, candy on certain days throughout the week.

Cons: The cheapest option starts at 2 900 SEK/month, which gives you access to the lounge area. If you want a flex membership with a proper desk and chair you’ll have to pay 4 900 SEK/month. It’s expensive compared to many other options, but the standard and quality is very high.


BEST CAFÈS TO WORK FROM

Condeco

A large café in central Malmö. Be sure to check out the second floor, which offers plenty of seating and lots of power outlets.

Cons: I’ve heard from some that it can get pretty busy/loud at peak hours. I was there on a Sunday afternoon though, and it was pretty much empty.

Djäkne Kaffebar

The café is run by a local tech company, and it’s a popular destination in the startup scene. They offer a quiet and friendly atmosphere and focus on quality coffee. They also offer a co-working membership giving you access to the second floor. I have yet to test that though.

Cons: WiFi could be better and the seats in the café/open-space were pretty hard. I couldn’t really stay for too long.

Espresso House (Stortorget)

There are plenty of Espresso Houses to choose from (most of which are pretty decent options). In particular I like this spot for the location, and the counter-seating (with comfortable chairs).

Cons: As with most cafés, this place tends to get pretty busy/loud at peak hours. Mornings and evenings are pretty chill though.

Cafe Live

A cosy café and lunch spot on a side street by Malmö Live. There’s plenty of seating, drinks, and food choices.

Cons: I think it’s a popular lunch spot, so it’s probably best to go in the morning or afternoon if you’re looking for some quiet.

BEST “SECRET SPOT”

Living Room Café @ Malmö Live (Clarion Hotel)

I recently found this hidden gem. Past the lobby of the hotel at Malmö Live you’ll find the “Living Room Café” space. I guess I would best describe it as a lounge area. There are tons of couch/sofa corners, but also large work tables. There’s also a bar area where you can buy drinks — but the great thing about this place is that there’s no need to buy anything if you’re just looking for a place to sit and get some work done.

Cons: Limited number of power outlets. Also I think the WiFi requires registration, which is a bit annoying.
