Paulo is a good host. The hostel is pretty quite right now as the industry recovers from the pandemic. The location is fantastic, in a good safe neighborhood and a few minutes away from several shops and the metro.

I had an incredible experience at Roca Hostel as a guest and as a volunteer. The owner of the hostel, Paulo is very accommodating and you can easily find your place in his hostel. The work is well organized and you have many free times to enjoy the city. It's important because the location is perfect and you’re close from a lot of attractive points.
For sure I will return there if I have the opportunity!

I 100% recommend this hostel. The team is amazing and it was an incredible first experience as a volunteer. The host really makes sure you feel comfortable and at home. I didnt speak much of the language but everyone helped me learn a lot through out my stay. Also the supermarket is 20m away and the hostel is really close to the center. I honestly only stayed two weeks but i wished i stayed longer. Amazing!

O Roca Hostel é muito bem localizado, te dá fácil acesso aos principais pontos de São Paulo, como o Ibirapuera e a Paulista, fica num dos melhores bairros com farto comércio, facilitando a vida do viajante. O Paulo é muito gente boa, gosta de conversar e fazer amizade, é disponível, aberto e flexível, uma pessoa fácil de lidar e que se propõe a ajudar. O trabalho é bastante tranquilo e sobra tempo para quem quer conhecer a cidade. O hostel é bem aconchegante, eu me senti muito a vontade, como se eu estivesse na minha casa.Vou carregar boas lembranças e com certeza ficar com saudades de todos!

Minha experiência no Roca Hostel foi incrível!
Fui acolhida em tempos de pandemia, o anfitrião Paulo foi sempre muito solícito e atencioso com os packers, esclarecendo dúvidas e explicando as atividades.
As acomodações e condições oferecidas aos voluntários são excelentes.
Recomendo o Roca Hostel.
