Where am I off to this week?
Where is it?
So why did I choose Tribes The Hague Central Station?
As I have been traveling, I kept seeing the Tribes brand pop up in my searches. It was now time to experience it first hand myself. Apparently each location has a unique inspiration for the design of each space. This specific “location is inspired by the tribe Maori, whose fascinating traditions and artefacts will be a constant source of inspiration while you visit”. Not only did I want to see what it felt like to work there but I wanted to check out how it differentiates itself from some of the other larger workspaces I had worked in.
Not long after I reached out to the team at Tribes The Hague Central Station, I heard from Lindsey who invited me to come in for the day.
I found the space easily as it was an easy train ride and part of an area I knew well having lived nearby for a number of days already. I first met with Lindsey who showed me the open coworking area on the first floor. She was planning to give me a tour a little later in the day so that I could plug in and get a few things done first.
I plugged in and she me brought me a fresh coffee and a small cookie. Not a bad way to start the day!
The space had a really good look. It was open and comfortable. Everything I needed in regards to the basics of a coworking space.
Open coworking is on the first floor with huge windows and high ceilings.
Once I was ready, Lindsey gave me a tour of the rest of the space. There multiple floors were mainly filled with private offices, however, they did include a number of conference rooms that could be used by open coworkers which was great.
Each conference room had a different look and feel and were organized for different types of meetings. They definitely thought through how companies need to use these spaces instead of just throwing a table and chairs into a room.
After we finished the tour, I went back down to the first floor and continued working until they closed.
Although open coworking wasn’t too busy the day that I was there, I did meet a few people that were nice and felt like I could definitely meet more people as I worked there on more of a routine.
This space also had a good balance between open coworking and private offices. This is one of the larger and full service types of spaces on the market in this area which is important for when a company grows or to even attract larger organizations from the beginning.
Even though this was a quick stop on my journey, the space was nice and the people managing the space were great to chat with! I am looking forward to checking out this space again or working from one of there other locations in the future.
In the meantime, check out the rest of the spaces I worked out of on Cowork22’s European Journey of 2017 as a digital nomad building a business while traveling and working in coworking spaces.
Where should I go next? What questions do you want me to answer to help you on your journey?
