Have questions? We've got answers.
No. But we have a Day Pass membership now if you’d like to join Hubud for a day and get a feel of the community. The Day Pass is USD 20, valid for 24 hours, and could be purchased at our front desk.
Absolutely! We organize tours Mon-Fri once a day at 11am. You can schedule a tour here. Our team would be more than happy to give you a tour around the space, and answer any of your Hubud questions. Come over!
Our membership packages are based on hours, and valid to be used flexibly in a month. This means, you could choose the hours-package depending on how many hours you’d be planning to use at Hubud.
For instance, if you’re planning to use the coworking space for 3-4 hours daily for 2 week, then our In & Out (50 hours) membership will work best for you.
Check out our monthly plans here.
We count your internet usage at Hubud, and you can check the usage in real time. However, there’s also the honesty system, if you’re using our space and facilities to do your work (even without the internet), then we think that you like what we’re doing here at Hubud. You can show us your support by getting a membership. :)
No. You can’t transfer your membership hours to others, nor can you use them for the next month.
Yes! We have discounts available for longer terms membership: 3 months (5% off), 6 months (15% off) 12 months (20% off). Indonesian KTP holders also receive a complimentary upgrade to the next membership level when joining Hubud!

You are allowed three devices to use with your membership; your laptop, your mobile phone, and your tablet.
Sustainability (in all senses) is central to the Hubud philosophy. Our space is finished primary with artisan bamboo, with flooring done in recycled ulin (ironwood) wood to create a natural, inspiring environment. The rice field and volcano view from our garden cafe isn't bad, either.
We have 400 sqm (about 4000 sqf) of beautiful space, including a conference room of 15+, meeting room for 6+, a Skype booth, a cozy loft, and a lovely backyard with plenty of bean bags!
You step outside to our backyard and into Kantin - our onsite cafe & restaurant that serves delicious and healthy authentic dishes made with local ingredients and lots of love.
We are open for breakfast, lunch and early dinner time, and we also have plenty of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options. It’s delicious, it’s healthy, and it has tons of good vibes.
Kantin opening hours:
Mon-Fri: 7.30am – 6.30pm
Sat: 8.30 am – 6pm
Sun: 9am – 6pm
Download Kantin menu here.
We’re open 24 hours from Monday - Friday (hosting hours from 8am - 8pm), and on Saturday and Sunday, we’re open from 9am - midnight (hosting hours from 9am - 5pm).
Hosting hours mean that we have Hubud hosts at the space to help you if you need any assistance. You will need to come during hosting hours if it’s your first time at Hubud, or if you’d be needing any tech-related or administration help. Outside of the hosting hours, we have two security guards on-site. They’re very friendly and they like to joke around, so make sure you say hi!
We are located in Ubud, the cultural and creative epicentre of Bali. A globally renowned hub for yoga, organic food, holistic healing and postcard scenery, there is a thriving (and growing) community of social entrepreneurs, creative professionals, freelancers, filmmakers and dreamers.
We are located 80m from the Sacred Monkey Forest, the heart of Ubud. There are hotels, restaurants and shops steps from our front door.
We really do put a lot of efforts in having a good, reliable internet connection at Hubud. Our internet connection is a dedicated fiber optic line, with a shared 100mbps and a dedicated 50mbps line. We also have a backup provider, if for some reason our main line goes out. If power cut happens, our members can still be online for two hours. We also have an in-house IT specialist to make sure that our members have all the support they need when they’re at Hubud. His name is Agus. Always be nice to Agus.
No. At Hubud, we have an open-plan, hot-desk arrangement. We created this with the aim to pursue efficiency and members to members collaboration in mind. This also means that members can not necessarily "book" a particular desk in advance, or create a "dedicated" workstation for their own personal use.
In our expansion plan, we are going to create a section that could accommodate members who want to rent a dedicated desk/office space. But in the meantime, we only have an exception for members with Unlimited plan (some of whom need to set up an extra monitors for their work) and teams.
Yes! See our Space Rental offer for more details about using our space as your event venue.
Check, check and check. Printing is included in the membership price for reasonable sized jobs, with a nominal fee for bigger print jobs.
Yes, you can work at Hubud and use VPN. However, please be aware that VPN decreases the speed by approximately 20%-30% because of several factors. If the VPN server is located far away from Ubud (e.g. in another country), the data will need to travel a further distance over the VPN, meaning it will take longer to reach your computer. Data sent via a VPN also needs to be encrypted before it reaches your computer, another step which requires time and therefore decreases internet speed. Other factors which may contribute are ISP connection speed, VPN server load (how many people are using the same server as you) and your computer's processor speed.
To prioritise speed, it is recommended that you choose a premium VPN that gives you the ability to connect to a server close to Indonesia (usually Singapore). Keep in mind, however, that these premium VPNs are not always free. Look for a reliable VPN provider that reduces data packet loss. Using a computer with a fast processing speed and adjusting your firewall settings so the VPN can flow easily will also help you maximise VPN speed.
Yes! It can be sent to Hubud's address which is c/o Hubud, Monkey Forest Road 88x, Ubud, Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia. However, there will be a cost for keeping your mail safe in Hubud which is IDR 20,000 for a letter/small package and IDR 50,000 for a big package.
Our friendly Hosts will let you know about it by sending you an e-mail. They are pretty nice.
It's possible although there will be extra fees for that: IDR 100,000 for a letter and IDR 200,000 for a package. It's for handling fees and an added measure to ensure we are receiving items that are acceptable to send through Indonesian post.
Absolutely… we love team energy in the space and help to make it possible. If you’re bringing your team, get in touch with us at [email protected] and we’ll create a special package for you.
We typically have between 200 - 250 people from all around the world coworking at Hubud.
Our members reflect the wicked diversity of people who choose to live in Ubud: tech startups, social entrepreneurs, creative design pros, private equity folks, filmmakers and photographers, writers, coaches, development consultants and marketing geniuses. It's like our dream dinner party!
We have 35 - 40 events per month, which focus directly on learning and facilitated networking. The magic of Hubud comes from the people you encounter, the perspective you gain and the collaborators you find! Check out our events listing here.

Yes! Hubud’s Soft Landing Package is here to help moving to Bali with ease.
We’ve helped dozens of adventurers navigate the rocky reefs of relocation. Every month there are over 250 new people arriving at Hubud, and we’re always more than happy to help them. We know what they need, what challenges they are facing, what questions they have, who they want to meet, and more.
This is how we’ve crafted our Soft Landing Package. No more wasting time figuring out the logistics when you first land, we will have everything sorted for you. From airport pickup to coliving, introduction to the community and activities of your choosing, we’ll take care of you like we take care of our own mother!
While we try our best to support our members, we’re not equipped to help with accommodation outside of the Soft Landing Package.
There is, however, a wide array of housing available in and around Ubud, depending on what you are looking for. A simple room in a shared house can be found for as little as $150 - $200 a month, with a luxury 3-4 bedroom house running $4000 - $5000 a month. Facebook groups are always a good place to start looking, and once you’ve arrived, check out the community boards across the town for housing ads.
We would require at least 6 weeks notice (but in general—the sooner the better). Please note our package is designed to assist you with your transition during your first month in Ubud. Should you be needing our assistance afterward, we’d be more than happy to help!
There will usually be 3-6 other newly arrived Hubud members staying at your accommodation. It's an easy, great way for you to make initial contacts.
When you arrive, we want to make sure that you are settling in well. Our staff will personally welcome you and introduce you to the community at Hubud.
With Hubud’s membership you’ll be joining the vibrant community of creatives, entrepreneurs and startup guys and girls here in Bali. While we take care of your logistics, you can just focus on learning, relaxing and experiencing all that Bali has to offer.
To provide you with the best experience while staying in Ubud we're partnered up with:
The Honeymoon Guesthouse
Situated only a five-minute walk away from the heart of Ubud and 15 minutes from Hubud it ffers 30 elegant Balinese style guest rooms set in lush tropical gardens.
The Sarin Villas
Situated right behind Hubud, in the heart of Ubud. It’s a 3 storey building with 9 rooms built on a 1,500 meter square tropical garden in the middle of rice fields.
Pertiwi Bisma 2
This charming Balinese family-style hotel is situated within a 10 minutes walking distance to Hubud. The accommodation boasts a panoramic views of beautiful rice terraces, what Ubud is famed for! It's the best option for those seeking a good quality accommodation, in a peaceful and relaxed environment.
We require a 50% deposit, paid at least one month before your arrival. Please note it’s a non-refundable deposit to have your accommodation arranged. The rest of your payment fee is due one week before your arrival. We accept payments by PayPal, credit card (via PayPal), by bank transfer (all bank charges paid by student) upon receiving an invoice from Hubud.
Most of our members run their own businesses or work remotely for their overseas company. Within Hubud, our members often form connections, collaborate on projects, or hire one another for freelance or long term work. We highly recommend trying this route if you have the flexibility to do so — some people come to Bali and end up staying much longer because they find an opportunity within the business community. You can also try to find employment beforehand, like in our digital community, Hubud Global.
We have 250+ new members every month from all over the world with various backgrounds and opportunities. We also host regular skill-sharing, brainstorming and networking sessions—up to 35 events every month. The more you take part of our community, the more likely you will make meaningful connections!
We don’t provide sponsorship letter or visa advice for our members. However, we do have several recommended visa consultants and agents. Get in touch with us if you’d like to be connected with them.
Yes, and Bali is loaded with options for permanent schooling as well as playgroups and temporary programs. A quick search of schools in Bali will provide a detailed list of schools on the island. Here are some suggestions but please take the time to explore a path that is good for you.
Green School Bali is a world renowned school with a focus on environmentalism and sustainability. The school has been running for 8 years and the founders of Hubud all had their children in Green School. The School has had incredible visitors such as Dr. Jane Goodall, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Richard Branson and Vandana Shiva to name a few. Hubud is often called "the Green School for adults" so there are some unique connections! The School offers daily tours so you can get a feeling for the beautiful and inspiring campus as well as their unique learning model.
Yellow Coco Creative Nest - considered one of if not the premier playgroup in Bali this magical center has daily programs and drop-ins as well as after school programs.
The Spring School - a special local and international school for little ones that has drop-ins.
Yes but most of the people are single, some are couples. The Director, Chris, has two kids, the Founders have two kids and some other members have families here as well. They love to bring their kids to the events and programs and the children love being at Hubud. The members are really friendly and so nice to children. Now that doesn't mean kids can run around and do what they want. Like everyone else there are protocols as it is a coworking space. But it is really relaxed and they love it.
We don't have specific programs for children at Hubud. However, Ubud is filled with schooling options from homeschooling to smaller schools to tutors. Plus there are play groups - pottery, painting, art, music, sports, hiking, biking, rafting. Ubud is a very social, kind, fun place.
You can cancel your membership at anytime—although we’re betting that you won’t want to. ;)
At the moment, all the classes on Hubud Global are filmed at our headquarters in Bali. In the future, though, we will be accepting online workshops to be distributed for our community.
Yes, every Hubud member (from Casual to Unlimited) gets FREE access to our platform, with the exception of Day Passes. Once your membership at Hubud has finished, you’ll still have one month of digital membership. After that period you’ll be asked to purchase it separately.
That is exactly why we’ve created the platform. We’re live streaming our events so that you get to participate as if you were here: you can ask questions, chat with others, etc. Can’t attend? Worry not. The recording of the talk will be available max. 4 hours later.
Yes, all talks are recorded and published up to 4h after the event, together with additional materials from a presenter.
There are several Bali-related groups (i.e. #WheretofindinBali, Reviews, Accommodations, Visa & Immigrations, Bali Events; etc.), Jobs Marketplace, News to Celebrate, Future of Work, and of course, Hubud-related groups.
You can join and contribute to any groups you like! Hubud Global is an inclusive place!
Lovely! Every member can create new groups, however, we’ll need to approve them before it’s published, mostly because we need to make sure there are no duplicated groups. Please get in touch with us if you would like to moderate a group. What can we offer in exchange? General love and recognition as a “Hubud Global Captain” along with a monthly digital membership.
Of course you can! You can also use LinkedIn and your Google account.
TBD—We’re working on it now but most probably it’s a monthly membership with a recurring payment via PayPal. Sign up to be an early adopter and get notifications as soon as we get rolling!
Name, last name, who they are, their role, skills, plus everything else they want to share with the community on their profile.
Yes and yes.
Yes, we’ll be sending out pushed notification an hour and 10 min before the event starts. And remember—there will be recording available after the event so no worries if you cannot join.
Great! Check out our Careers page to see our current vacancy. Please note that jobs at Hubud are open to Indonesian nationals only, unless otherwise specified.
We give free promotional space for our members who'd like to put their projects in our newsletter/social media posts. But, for non-members, there's a certain fee. Please email as at [email protected] to find out more about our packages.
in 2015, Hubud organized the first Coworking Unconference Asia, or CU Asia for short. At the end of the 2nd CU Asia in 2016, the Coworking Alliance for Asia Pacific (CAAP) was launched. CAAP unifies, supports and promotes collaborative coworking across the region, and will be the organizing body for CU Asia 2017 as well as other regional events. Steve Munroe (Hubud's CEO) is the Founder and Director of CAAP, so while they are separate entities you may notice a bit of the Hubud magic in CAAP.
