Where to stay as a digital nomad

One of the things you have to worry about as a digital nomad is where you are going to stay for the night. And you want to fix this quick, so you have more time left for work and travel. Of course it depends on your budget, but there are plenty of options.

Short term rental apartments

If you want your own private space while working remote, a short term rental apartment is a good option. Check out Airbnb.com or Gobehere.com for nice places to rent. For Gobehere a membership is required and you must stay at least one month at a place.


This may be the most luxurious option of this blog. In hotels you mostly get your own private space with bathroom, access to fitness studios and even breakfast. But there is also a price tag to it. Of all options, this is probably the most expensive one. For a few nights you can definitely book a hotel on Expedia or Booking, but we recommend to book something else for the longer term if you work remote. 

Home swap

If you are looking for a cheap place to stay, home swap may be something for you. Unlike a rental apartment or hotel, a home swap means that the room is not especially designed for guests or tourists. But one of the benefits is that your home is taken care of while you are away. Another option is couchsurfing. That means that you stay with a host at their place. You can find available places on couchsurfing.com.


A perfect place to stay while working remote is a hostel. Hostels are often really cheap and you meet a lot of people. In most hostels you sleep in shared bedrooms, that you share with 4 to 16 other people. This can be nice, but keep in mind that it can cause you to sleep less, and that’s not ideal when you have to work a lot. For good hostels all over the world you can go to hostelworld.com

Coliving spaces

You can also choose for coliving with other people. You will meet new people and share the kitchen, bathroom and living area. In most cases you will have your own bedroom. This is an opportunity to connect closely with other travelers.

You choose

It’s all up to you. If you want to meet new people while working remote, hostels and coliving spaces are the best options. But if you rather have your own private space, you can choose for hotels and rental apartments. It also depends on your budget and the place where you are travelling to.
