  1. During your visit, double check the amenities.

Important thing that need to be checked are showers, bulbs, sinks, toilets, and electrical outlets.


  1. Determine whether there are fixed hours of operations or you have the liberty to set your own business hours.

Some office spaces, especially those that are located inside buildings or malls, have fixed hour of operations.  Meaning, there’s no way that you can extend your time because electricity and water are centralized and whenever you go beyond the building’s operational hours, you will surely be groping in the dark.
