What is coworking?
Coworking is basically a working environment that combines the positive attributes of a café, a well-equipped office and our home environment, while surrounds you with an inspiring and colourful community to work in where you can find you connections while sipping your coffee and over a lunch together. Coworking is not something only for freelancers but also offers advantages to larger teams and corporations that are open to providing their employees a more diverse working environment as they see this rather as an opportunity than a burden.
Is this a better alternative than a traditional office?
Working from a coworking office is way more cost effective as renting your own so you’ll be able to spend more on other parts of your business. You get all infrastructure ready (strong wifi, community spaces, kitchens, skype rooms, meeting rooms etc.) and you’ll also get access to the continuously changing and exciting network of the space (closed FB group, Slack Community, intranet platform, internal newsletters) that will provide you with new and useful professional connections, potential clients.
How can I become a member?
You’ll become a member by acquiring any of our membership passes listed on the website. Selecting from this variety of membership constructions you’ll surely find what’s best suitable for your needs. If you are not sure, feel free to reach out to us for help via email, phone or in person.
We also have an intranet platform that you can register to also through our webpage After registering, here you can proceed with purchasing your pass also. Our team gets notified and we’ll get in contact asap.
It is important, that daily tickets or seat services do not grant membership, one becomes a member of KAPTÁR by purchasing any of our passes (Community Membership, FLEXIE or FIXIE passes).
What’s the difference between FLEXIE and FIXIE passes?
The FLEXIE monthly pass (4K, 8K, 13K, monthly or 24/7) allows you to work in KAPTÁR’s ground floor hot-desk area. This is an open space with all kinds of workstation types from counters and regular tables with seats to the couch and arm chairs that can be occupied in arriving order. There are no reserved seats here, you can sit next to anybody or to someone else each day.
If you find the hot-desk space too busy, we provide our FLEXIE members the option to use the free workstations (with a sign on them) of our 1st floor FIXIE room for focused work on a daily basis. Ask for an access card at the front desk when you arrive so you can enter the closed workspace. Once you’re done for the day, please hand back the card.
Further to the above, FIXIE and Co-FIXIE passes allow you to choose your dedicated place and desk in the closed FIXIE spaces of KAPTÁR Classic or KAPTÁR Happening. You can decorate your place freely and leave all your stuff safely here, and of course can come and go 24/7 any day.
What are “K” passes? How are they different from monthly passes?
While monthly passes allow you to come to KAPTÁR any day of the week, “K” passes grant you access for a certain number of days (4, 8, 13) each month (or 30 day) until renewal. You can use these days anyway convenient for you over this period of time.
If you’d run out of days, you can renew your pass anytime or can also purchase additional days at a discount price. Check what’s the best for you HERE.
Why does my pass renew automatically?
All passes at KAPTÁR renew automatically every 30 days. Besides being kind of convenient (that you don’t need to pay attention to this each month), it also has a practical, rather legal reason too. If the contract would not renew automatically each month as per the CTC, we would have to sign a new contact with each other every month that would be a huge administrative overkill with over 100 members. Of course you receive an automatic reminder 6 days ahead of each renewal, so you are free to cancel or change your pass anytime by sending a simple email about it to our team. Upon receipt of such email, we are confirming it also to you via email. If you do not get such an automatic reminder, please immediately inform us!
What does KAPTÁR membership contain?

You’ll get notified of all upcoming events in our internal newsletter, community channels or on the billboards in the space so you won’t miss out on anything.
What is Community Membership?

Such a pass also provides you with all the member discounts that we offer too (eg. meeting rooms, seat service, etc.).
