Coliving in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the largest city and capital of Scotland making this a major financial and trade center, along with being a great coliving destination. For digital nomads, Scotland has probably never crossed your mind, but it is growing in popularity with many digital nomads looking for a temporary home. The city metro is home to just shy of one million and pressed up against the waterfront for you and the locals to enjoy. Edinburgh has everything you would expect from a modern yet historical city.

Edinburgh is home to some amazing theaters to catch a live show, and not just shows but many live venues and live music as well, so finding a new favorite pub with live music won't be too hard here. There are also world-class shopping centers and department stores here. Most of the same high-end stores such as Gucci and Burberry that you would find in London can be found here as well.

Compared to UK standards, Edinburgh is quite expensive to live in, but not as expensive as London. Finding a coliving space on the outskirts can save you some money and with the great public transport here, you can get almost anywhere you need to go. Even though cars are popular, there is also an amazing bus system and a rail system that doesn't just take you all around the city - it can take you all around the country. The international airport here is the busiest and main gateway in Scotland, with direct flights all around the world, so you can easily get away on holiday or take a short mini-break.

Finding affordable communal living in Edinburgh

Finding affordable housing in Edinburgh can be tough, especially in cities with high rent prices. One solution that many people turn to is communal living with shared spaces and roommates. This can be a cost-effective way to have a private room while still being able to afford rent in a desirable location. There are a few different options for finding a shared living arrangement in Edinburgh. One option is to look for a private room for rent in a coliving home. This can be a good option for people who want some privacy, but still want to be part of a community. Another option is to look for a shared room, where you'll be sharing a bedroom with one or more roommates. This can be more affordable, as you'll only be responsible for paying for your own bed. The downside is that you'll have less privacy, as you'll be sharing a bedroom with others. You can find both accommodation options on Coliving.com. We can help you find a compatible roommate based on your preferences and lifestyle. Some hosts do background checks and eviction history checks to ensure that the roommates you're living with are trustworthy individuals. When looking for a shared living arrangement, it's important to do your due diligence and make sure that you're comfortable with the living arrangement and the people you'll be living with.
