Ahoy! Berlin has been one of the top coworking spaces in Berlin since 2012. Another great option is Betahaus Berlin. The founders there decided they wanted to create a big workshop space where people could do all types of work, including things like fixing bikes, so it offers a unique atmosphere.

Hallesches Haus is located in Kreuzberg and is very popular for freelancers. Itโ€™s basically a general store, lunchroom and event space in one location. You can pretty much sit, work and eat here all day. But on busy days, laptops are forbidden between 12 and 3 pm to make room for lunch guests, which is fair enough.
