For most of you, the term “coworking” may sound foreign but looking closely, the concept is very simple.

According to Wikipedia:

Coworking is a style of work that involves a shared working environment, often an office, and independent activity. Typically it is attractive to work-at-home professionals, independent contractors, or people who travel frequently who end up working in relative isolation. 

However, Dojo 8 Coworking Space Iloilo is not only about the physical space but it’s also about establishing a coworking community in Iloilo.

Dojo 8 is open to tech and non-tech communities, organizations or teams, professionals, and students.

So you’re probably wondering what you can possibly do in a coworking space? Well, here’s a quick tour of the space:

With Kevin Piamonte and Yen de Felipe, Dojo 8 Coworking Space Manager

At the common coworking area

This is the common coworking area. You can choose between 4 hours or 10 hours option. Professionals (who are members) pay 150.00 for 4 hours use of the space and that also includes Wifi access, charging (up to 2 devices), unlimited brewed coffee, organic tea, and water. Students (members) pay 120.00 for 4 hours.

For the 10 hours option, in case you will not be able to consume the said hours within a particular day, you can go back and redeem your remaining hours within 7 days. Isn’t that nice?!

This corner room is ideal for bigger group meetings or group study. It can seat 8 to 10 persons. The room rental is only 1,000 for 4 hours with unlimited brewed coffee, organic tea, and water. In excess, you pay 100/head. The room can accommodate 15 – 20 persons depending on the arrangement.


Small Rooms 

This is ideal for Skype calls, interviews, or group work/study. The standard room rate is 300.00 for 4 hours. The room can accommodate 2 -3 persons. Comes with unlimited coffee, tea and water.

According to a recent medical news about prolonged sitting, Physical inactivity results in a heightened risk of serious illness and premature death. That is why standing on your feet for three hours longer will burn 144 calories per day. That is equivalent to eight pounds or over half a stone of fat in a year,
