I had a great experience working at Garoa *-*
Andrea is a great manager, helps us whenever we need, the staff is great (Hello, Rafa o/) and the neighborhood is exciting with lots of things to do right beside the metro station Faria Lima.



Was a totally different and really good experience! I totally recommend Garoa Hostel ! The team is really kind and helpfull :)



I love this hotel and all the staff. Daniel and Andrea makes me feel like home. Sometimes he had party with good music, good drinks and food for the guests. Already I miss the Garoa hostel !!



Nice people to work with, easy going atmosfere and a wonderful place to chill out. Work time was flexible so I've managed to do other things whilst working there.



Ótimo hostel, localização excelente, perto de praticamente tudo, equipe boa (em especial Rafael, Ellen e Fádia), meu enorme carinho e gratidão à vocês. Obrigado e até uma próxima <3
