Inside the weird world of co-living, Silicon Valley's attempt to solve the housing crisis

The overlap between co-living and co-working is no coincidence. Co-living startups are hoping that they can do to residential accommodation what co-working did to office space: attract young people to shared spaces, subverting the economics of real estate by offering access over ownership.

The last 5 weeks I stayed at roam.co in Bali, a new and aspiring coliving startup from New York.
