Coliving in Egypt

With a population of 96 million as of 2017, Egypt is the most populous Arab country in the world. It is considered to be one of the centers of Islamic arts, culture and entertainment that influence much of the Arabic world across the Middle East and North Africa.
It was briefly thrust into the spotlight in 2011 when its social media-savvy youth organized one of the more successful demonstrations during the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ revolution which eventually toppled the 30-year reign of then-President Hosni Mubarak.
The widespread use of social media that came to the fore was a revelation to most people from the West as it was previously assumed that there was minimal social media usage for the traditionally conservative country's 90% Muslim population.
Today, the country continues to buck stereotypes and is embracing modern concepts in terms of working arrangements without necessarily compromising their inherent personal values.

Depending on your inclination, digital nomads who wish to explore Egypt can choose between exceptional coliving spaces in the capital city of Cairo, the seaside town of Dahab along the Red Sea coast, and even on the isolated Siwa Oasis in the Western Desert.

Fun Facts About Egypt:
- Running for 6,670 kilometers, the Nile River is the longest river in the world
- Presently, the Great Pyramid of Giza is the only surviving structure among those listed in the seven wonders of the ancient world
- The word Gypsy originated as a slang term used to refer to Egyptians
- All of the discovered tombs of known kings and pharaohs were heavily looted by robbers, except for the tomb of King Tutankhamun which was discovered intact with all of its valuable treasure and artifacts
- For a country that is famous for its pyramids, it is surprising to know that Egypt doesn’t have the biggest pyramid in terms of volume (it’s the Great Pyramid of Cholula in Mexico) nor do they have the most number of pyramids constructed (their neighbor Sudan actually has twice as many).
- The Suez Canal, an artificial waterway linking the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea, is controlled by Egypt
- About 95% of the country’s population lives along the Nile River

Finding affordable communal living in Egypt

Finding affordable housing in Egypt 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 Egypt. 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.

What is coliving?

Coliving is a new trend amongst millennials for renting shared apartments.

Co-living places people from different backgrounds together and encourages them to interact, collaborate and form new friendships.
