Found in Wan Chai, the space is split into a few major areas including workstations, a library, a meeting room, a print room - and for extra special slackers - a sun terrace. The facility has high-speed internet throughout, free tea and coffee, storage lockers for each member, and best of all, it’s a nice place to be. The idea is to engender a sense of community which is essential because otherwise you’d just go there to steal ideas from your betters.
The Hive offers various tiers of membership from a one-day pass (HK$300) to a part-time subscription (HK$2,800/month) to workstation membership (HK$6,000) which shotguns you a permanent desk. So no one can play with your ruler. It’s open 24/7 and waives certain fees if you’re involved in a start-up business or a social enterprise. Overall it’s got a great feel, and we just hope that unlike most of the freelancers who'll frequent it, they can actually make a business out of it.
