    Incredibly easy to book and use. Friendly, welcoming space with fantastic facilities. I'm using the space for hot desking today, and couldn't be happier. The office space is large, but split into lots of areas for different work preferences and use cases. Will 100% recommend and use again in the future.Was also particularly impressed that there is (limited) parking if you drive into the city which I sadly had to today!

    I attended a brief meeting with Garath, Raw Space's Community Manager, mainly to look at their meeting room space and assess their general facilities.Easy to find, I was warmly greeted by Gareth and taken upstairs into the main 'hot desk' space, which was full but didn't feel overcrowded.The meeting room was just what I was looking for, and with the addition of a well stocked kitchen included in the hire somewhere, I will definitely be booking in the near future.

    Great place for work, really love it.
    I was looking for a coworking space with hot desk access to use as a base for research for personal projects outside of my day job. I found that Raw Space meets all of my requirements and more. Friendly community - and their dogs! - is a big plus.

    A great co-working space with lots of friendly people. I use it for hot desking and it's a nice and relaxed environment to work in. The kitchen is good and a lovely sun trap terrace

    I love hot-desking at Raw Space, it’s a very well equipped co-working office space, they even have spare monitors you can use. The staff and the hotdeskers themselves are really friendly, there are lots of people who work there regularly, who you can get to know and socialise with after work if you wish, and the office vibe is laid back while still being professional. The prices are very reasonable and they offer different packages depending on your needs. In addition to the open-plan hotdesk spaces they have private booths and a meeting room you can book. There is a kitchen with tea and coffee, microwave, water cooler, fridge, and more - even a supply of dog treats (yes, you can bring your dog to the office if you have one!). The fact that the office has a private car park is super convenient. Being in the heart of Gloucester Road, it’s also close to a ton of amenities. Security is excellent too.

    Wonderfully friendly coworking space. Great for those who work remotely and want to hot desk a few days a week. It's a great open plan setup (with smaller rooms and phone booths to reduce the noise) with kitchen facilities and an outside area.

    Great co-working space! I loved that they offered a free 7 days trial, which meant I could get my dog used to the space before deciding to sign up. Lovely community too! I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a co-working space in Bristol!

    There is a really nice community at Rawspace, and everyone is welcoming and friendly. The socials like the Wednesday lunch club, Thursday drinks, the Xmas and summer parties are great fun, and a easy way to get to know people. There is also a lovely diverse mix of ages and backgrounds which keeps things fresh and interesting.

    I had never co worked before but for various reasons had to work from Bristol last Friday. Very friendly people (both staff and fellow co workers), good facilities and an all round nice place to work from. Will definitely use again next time I am in Bristol

    Lovely space. I checked out some different co-working spaces in the area, and went with Raw Space for these reasons: their starter level hot desking offer is super reasonable, they were cool with me using it as a virtual art studio occasionally, as well as a virtual office, the vibe is chill, they keep it nice and toasty and they had a free trial week.I like that there's different zones for desk work, some standing desks, some relaxed seating for phone calls and a large meeting room if you need to get a team together.They also have the cutest dogs. Recommended.

    Great people and lovely welcoming space. Fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower, meeting booths l, printer, stationary equipment and wonderful office manager. I arrived in a Sunday and was let into the space over the phone. It’s open 24 hours and has been a lifesaver. Would absolutely recommend!

    Booked in for a day of hot desking here and it was so easy to do last minute. Need some quiet office space and it was the perfect co-working environment. Everyone super friendly and the location is ideal. Perfect if you're looking to get out of the house and mingle with other people. Will be going back!

    I've been coming to Raw Space for over 7 months now, and it has really transformed my experience living in Bristol. When I first moved I was doing my job from home full time, and I really missed the office buzz and being able to separate home from work. Raw Space has a lovely balance of being sociable but productive, with lots of activities to get involved in outside working hours. We've had some lovely BBQ's in the outside area, playing bowls in the park on sunny lunchtimes and enjoying the watering holes down Gloucester road. Management have been really accommodating when suggesting ways to improve the working experience and I've felt so welcome. Lots of cute dogs to cuddle too as a very welcome comfort break from the job. I'm definitely here for the long-term.

    Lovely atmosphere for coworking and getting all the benefits of an office space - we're a very small remote team so a couple of us work from here one day a week to connect and see other people (and the lovely dogs!), it's so nice to be part of a warm friendly atmosphere to make a change from working from home

    A fantastic open plan working space for digital nomads, workers frustrated at home and those who want to mix with others. Friendly, resourceful with enough spaces to engage with like minded people, or to hide away and focus on work. After WFH for the last 2yrs with intermittent office time, I only realised how much I needed this once I was welcomed through the doors!

    Raw Space has the best community atmosphere out of all the coworking spaces in Bristol! They plan so many social events. It transformed my remote working experience. I couldn’t recommend it more, especially if you’re looking for a sense of community.

    Raw Space is a hidden co-working space gem in Bristol and I genuinely feel quite lucky that we found it. Facilities are good, kitchen, bathroom, internet, meeting rooms, outdoor space etc but what makes this place really stand out is the community, coffee mornings, group lunches, after-work drinks etc. If you want somewhere where you can do your own thing but feel part of an office, this is the place. They have both hot desking and permanent desk options.

    I tried several co-working spaces before finding Raw Space. Lovely people, great price, with lots going on. The community really makes this place stand out. There is both hot desking and permanent desks, and if you need more privacy, a meeting room. If you are looking for a place to work away from home give this place a go.

    I spent a few months in Bristol and used Raw Spaces as my temporary office. The workspace has everything you need such as fast internet, comfy chairs, big desks, a fully equipped kitchen, shower, meeting rooms, and so on. But the community is the best part. Everyone was super friendly in the space, they also hold many events such as a poker night which was lots of fun. As a freelance developer, I was also very fortunate enough to network with some really talented people working on some very cool projects. Bix the office manager is incredibly kind, made me feel super welcome, and is an absolute superstar. I will keep going back here when I am in Bristol. I can't recommend the place highly enough!

    The best co working space in bristol if you’re looking for community. Working remotely during multiple lockdowns was super tough, I did multiple trials at different co working spaces in bristol and then I found Rawspace. Genuinely lovely and engaging people doing a whole range of different work, a great space with different work options and of course the dogs (Piccolo!♥️) Would highly recommend to anyone who needs a separate working space form home & a great bunch of people to be around and share life with 🙂

    Highly recommended co-working hot desk for anybody struggling with working from home. The collaborative community is on hand to ensure that your working day is a rewarding one. The meeting room allows you to professionally host clients. Venue management are very hands on, and sympathetic to any working needs. It also has a great social scene after work making great use of Gloucester Road.

    Just joined RAW space full-time after doing the 7-day free trial! I tried loads of different co-working spaces in Bristol but this was the best by far in terms of a community feel, everyone is super friendly and welcoming. The facilities are clean and bright - there are handy phone booths and a meeting room too... plus dogs!!
    The community and the people in Raw Space is what makes this place special. The office dogs makes this place even better. I work and have fun in this place.

    Used their meeting room yesterday as my home internet was unstable. It was a real life-saver as I had two big meetings to run. Izzy was so helpful and everyone was really friendly. The co-working space seemed really calm and specious. Also it was really clean and I was able to use their tea and coffee too, thank you. I highly recommend it. I'll be back, thank you

    I did the 7 day trial and within the first day was so impressed with the set up I signed up as a member. It's got a welcoming, warm and fun community atmosphere which is exactly what I was looking for. The space is great and I find it easy to concentrate and chat if I want to. There are some fab extra spaces to use if you need more focussed space too and I use the meeting booths a lot for this, the quiet room is great too and a nice big meeting room space. Great facilities with coffee and tea and shower too! I love the outdoor area, and it's great to be able to park if I need though i mainly cycle as location is really great from my home. A brilliant perk is bringing my dog in and meeting other doggos.The people here are the best thing about the place too, everyone is so lovely and friendly and there is a genuine community here with after work options to get involved with. Shout out to Izzy who expertly looks after all of us and the space to help make it a great place to be. Highly recommend Raw Space!

    I checked out a bunch of co-working spaces but after the trial here I can't imagine anything beating it. The people that run it are so down to earth and motivated to make it a vibrant community. Theres no seperation from anyone else and it fits perfectly between allowing focus and supporting interaction. FULLY RECOMMEND.

    Great space that is improving all the time. Good facilities, friendly staff and co-workers and best of all it's dog friendly 🙂 Phone booths could do with being sound proofed but I'm sure this is in the plans. It's not the cheapest hot-desk/ co-working space in town but not the most expensive either.

    Working from home is great, but not ALL THE TIME! I love Raw Space. It is a welcoming, comfortable, and contemporary shared workspace at the heart of the Gloucester Road in Bristol. Also great to have the opportunity to network and tap into the expertise of fellow sole workers entrepreneurial talents. Usually someone can find an answer to a problem, or at least point you in the direction of someone else who can. There's lots on offer, you can take it or leave it depending on what you need. Tea and coffee, cycling racks, good local art on the walls. Good people.
