I wish "hourly office rental"-type places were more common for this use case. It would also help with all the people hogging seats at Starbucks.

Personally I love the internet caf├ęs in Japan - you get a private booth, free drinks, some even have showers. They're well-equipped enough that some people down on their luck even live in them permanently. I wish that model was more widespread internationally.

Keep an eye on Breather, they're making short term spaces you can rent. Still in the early stages:


Regus does it. Of course it's much more cost effective to get a monthly rental if you'll be using it frequently.

You can occasionally get a year's free use of Regas facilities via various promotions. Worth keeping an eye out for.
