Located a minute’s walk from Echo Beach in Canggu, Dojo differentiates itself with round-the-clock access to its co-working space and an on-premises pool for members wishing to take a dip day or night.
The first thing you’ll notice at Dojo is it’s one of, if not the only, shoes-off cafe and collaboration hubs in Bali. Those looking to drop-in for the day can do so for Rp 200.000 (about USD $15), which gets you access until Midnight. Monthly plans are available, though I found the cost structure a bit pricy for my tastes. That said, prices are competitive with other coworking hubs in Bali. And two of the plans offer a mailing address – an interesting perk.
Like many of the other coworking spaces in Bali, Dojo does not have encrypted WiFi. And the registration process requires you to produce a secure password, which will likely lead members to enter one of their existing account passwords – a bad day if passwords leak.
Despite the high plan pricing and security snafus, I found Dojo to be quite charming. The staff had the friendliness typical of the Balinese, and the seating around the pool had a good amount of foliage to bring in nature while blocking out direct sunlight.
Inside there’s a cafe, which is also open to the public (only without Wi-Fi), and there’s also a Nalu Bowls attached in case you want to grab a healthy bite to eat.
There’s plenty of space inside and around the pool, and even a loft area and a second floor balcony ready for busy days. My experience on a weekend was a total of maybe 10 people throughout the day, and some who even stayed past Midnight like I did – around the time the partygoers started flooding the street on their way to the beach.
And though there were cushions around, I’d have to say my main gripe with Dojo was the wooden chairs, which, while surprisingly comfortable, still left me butthurt at the end of the day.
Overall, I liked Dojo about as much as Kumpul Coworking Space, and better than LineupHub or The Night Market.
