We often get asked a few questions about the ShareSpace — here’s a few of the common ones. Anything we’ve missed, just contact us.
Are you open on public holidays?
Fluid is closed for all public holidays. If you're not sure, check our hours online here.
Do you have private offices?
Fluid is an open plan office space so we don't have any private offices available. We do have a solo Zoom Booth that you can book for calls that require more privacy. Zoom Booth bookings are included free of charge with your day desk booking, or you can book it by the hour if you're not here for the day.
What's the story with drinks and snacks?
Help yourself to fruit, nuts, biscuits, tea and coffee! If you need a Nespresso / milk frother lesson, or if any supplies are running low just let us know. No problem to eat at your desk if that's your jam.
What kind of internet do you have?
We have wireless Fibre Max broadband with unlimited data - pretty fast by NZ standards. Wifi Access details will be provided on arrival. If you’re doing anything super data heavy please let us know in case it impacts other users.

How do payments and cancellations work?
For hot desk bookings your card will be charged on the morning you arrive or straight away if your booking is within 24 hours. If you can’t make it in please let us know ASAP so we can rent the desk to another nomad in need. Desk bookings cancelled within 24 hours of the booking are non-refundable.
Do you have any cooking facilities?
Feel free to use the fridge, toaster, sandwich press and microwave. Please label your food or claim a basket and clean up after yourself - dirty dishes tend to multiply!

What's the story with music?
We love our tunes! Feel free to DJ if you like - or veto anything you don’t! To turn the music on, turn the iMac in the front left corner of the room using the same login as the WIFI. Open up Sonos, find Spotify and choose a playlist. Volume can be adjusted on the front, middle and rear Sonos speakers.
Can I just drop in?
You sure can! There's always room for one more...
I have my colleague with me, can we book desks together?
No problem! One person can book 2+ desks at the same time. A/B and C/D are side by side. A/D and B/C are opposites.
Can I have visitors in Fluid ShareSpace?
Visitors, clients and colleagues are welcome to drop by or attend a meeting. If they stay for longer than 60-90 minutes, they’ll need to pay our usual hot desk half or full day rates.
Do you have recycling and composting?
We’re keen recyclers so please do the right thing and rinse and recycle your cardboard, glass and plastic (types 1, 2 & 5). We also recycle soft plastics, coffee pods and compost organics.
With the monthly rate, would this be a fixed desk I rent out?
Yes - you can choose a desk from those available and it's yours until you decide to move on.
Can I trial for a day to see if I would like to stay long term?
Sure - or else we'd be happy to credit the hot desk rate towards your long term booking.
Can I take calls / zoom / teams at my desk?
As long as you use some headphones and your voice volume isn't too loud. it's fine to take calls at your desk. You can also book the solo Zoom Booth if your call / zoom / teams is going to go for a while or you've got a meeting that needs a little more privacy.
Is your space dog-friendly?
We often have dogs hanging out at our ShareSpace. You’re welcome to bring your furry friend with you on the proviso that they're happy to hang out under your desk and are kept on a leash for those who are less comfortable around dogs. We have concrete floors so you might want to bring a doggie bed or blanket with you to keep them cosy.
Do you have private spaces for phone calls?
We have have a solo Zoom Booth that you can book for calls that require more privacy. Zoom Booth bookings are included free of charge with your day desk booking, or you can book it by the hour if you're not here for the day. We also have a sound isolating Egg Chair for if you need a quiet space to make a call - this space can't be pre-booked.
