Need to get some work done? It can be hard to focus in places like a busy coffee shop or even home with your bed constantly tempting you to take a break. Sometimes you need a change of pace and a calm environment to inspire you to actually get on with your work. Thankfully, Cairo has tons of coworking spaces where you can get out of your house and get busy. They’re perfect for freelancers who aren’t tied to an office, important staff meeting or students cramming for exams. So, here are some of the best places to get you focused and give yourself a break from the rest of the world. 

MQR Coworking Spaces  

Formerly known as AlMaqarr, MQR has been leading the game for Egypt’s coworking spaces since 2012. They have locations all over Cairo including Downtown, Heliopolis, New Cairo, Maadi, Sheikh Zayed and more. MQR is dedicated to providing more than just a room. They want to connect a community of bright and innovative individuals, and they aim to create networking and learning opportunities. Their facilities include private offices, coworking desks, meeting rooms and training rooms. You can work from their shared space for LE 100 per day or create your own monthly membership package starting with 1130 EGP. Meeting rooms start at  LE 100 per hour, and you can pay monthly for your own office. 

Soul Lounge 

Get in touch with your soul at Soul Lounge, a chill independent space that promises to be your home away from home. Soul considers everyone family, so you’re welcome to stay as long as you want.  You can destress and get to work on important tasks in total peace. Their self-serve philosophy allows you access to food and beverages without having to break your concentration. Soul has locations in both Maddi and Korba, and they regularly host different events like comedy nights and workshops.  You can stay one hour for LE 25, two hours for LE 50 or spend the whole day for LE 75 with drinks and snacks included.

This is where the magic happens. Located in Nasr City, Room Squared  will have you feeling creative and ready to work in no time. Once you become a “roomie,” you’ll have access to office and meeting rooms with a high-speed internet connection and a comfortable, quiet atmosphere.


One of Cairo’s most colourful coworking spaces is Creativo in Dokki. Their lively atmosphere is sure to brighten up your mood and make you feel productive in no time. You can book a shared space, meeting room, open air space or more to suit your needs. Free wifi is available daily, and you can book a shared or open air space for just LE 10 an hour.
