I loved my state at Cobana so much I booked two months for this summer before I even left. It was the perfect place to settle in and get some serious work done. Because of my stay, I'm launching a second penname with a novella I hadn't planned to write but found inspiration while at Cobana. There's a Lidl really close by and easy to walk to. A train station that'll take you into Brasov. Neither Bolt or Grab reach to Zarnesti but David has a phone with a local taxi company app loaded and I would just use that to leave the house and then find a taxi or Bolt wherever I went. When I return, I will be hiring a car for a period of time to see more further afield.
Cobana Coliving is a perfect place to stay for remote workers, entrepreneurs and digital nomads who are looking for a place to focus on work and relax in nature. There is a very relaxed vibe, no social obligations and everything is very chill. Although there are a bunch of things that people do together: go to the gym, hiking, bouldering, visiting castles, checking out Brasov, cooking together, brainstorm sessions etc. Because of the chill atmosphere I could easily focus a lot on projects/books/courses I wanted to finish for months already. It's a great place for personal development and hyper focus on your work. The facilities are amazing. WiFi has amazing speed, there are coworking-areas, but all rooms have a desk as well for private calls/meetings. The kitchen is well equiped and the owner takes suggestions of what's missing always into consideration. If something is missing he makes sure it will be there if people need it. :-) The place is a bit remote, so it can be hard to move around and explore. I came by car, so for me this was not a problem but I can imagine for some digital nomads it's too far away from the buzz of a city like Brasov or Bucharest. But it's an amazing base to explore the mountaineous surroundings. I really enjoyed hiking in places like Piatra Craiului, Bucegi, Ciucas and Fagaras. Also castles like Bran and the fortress of Rasno are easy to visit (you can even bike there!).
I enjoy a lot my time in Cobana. It is a beautiful house with all a digital nomad could need to work and have fun, make new connections and be productive. I would love to come back for longer time.
As a software developer and living as a digital nomad, I stayed here for 6 weeks and couldn’t love this place more. Objectively, everything is brand new and comfy and clean. Space has a lot of potential honestly. There is a big garden, terrace, balconies in almost all rooms, a coworking space with a view of forest and mountains, fully equiped kitchen, a barbecue house and great cozy spots to chill or work inside the building and more. Space is in a lovely village and great to go and discover the surrounding Transilvanian cities. View in the roads, hikes, hourseback ridings, extreme mountain sports, city tours with the sweet community of the space are the things that I loved most. I will definetely come back♥️
I stayed here with my partner and the rooms was clean and modern, all the bedding and furniture was clean and of high quality. The common area was fantastic for co working and the Internet was super fast, But the best part is the surrounding nature the morning views and the proximity to local amenities. I wish I had more time here to explore the surroundings and I truly miss waking up to the view of the forest and mountains
