[hackerspaces] Does a space need water?

If you'll be doing any renovation / painting, then it will most likely
suck to not have water in the space. If it's basically ready to move
in, then I don't think water/bathroom should be too much of a problem,
but it might get annoying. Not having a kitchen will mean spending
more money on takeout / possibly eating less healthy food, and having
a make-shift kitchen and no water will make doing the dishes / general
cleaning so much more of a chore.

I'd say go for a space with at least a sink in the space and a shared
bathroom if it's possible without compromising a lot on location/size.
