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!




Minha experiência fue muito bom, eu cheguei no medi-o da pandemia entao nao tive que fazer muito, mas o hostel e muito agradável, bonito, grande, e tem espacio pra entretençao. Paulo e muito simpático. Recomendo ir pra fazer parte do voluntariado, ou também pra ficar.




Todo combinado foi executado. O espaço é pequeno (uma casa), confortável, estrutural em dia e café da manhã bom.

Não tive muito contato com Paulo (dono), pois não mora no hostel, embora sempre foi solicito e se executasse alguma coisa errada, sempre explicou como fazer corretamente, sem ser autoritário.

Trabalhei em período de pandemia, logo foi bem tranquilo. Todavia, acredito que o trabalho deva ser tranquilo de qualquer forma.

Grato pela oportunidade.

Desejo que seja feliz e tenha paz.




Me senti em casa desde o primeiro dia. As tarefas foram bem tranquilas de cumprir e sempre que surgiam dúvidas, alguém auxiliava rapidamente. Ah, sempre sobra um tempinho livre para curtir a cidade :) Recomendo muito fazer voluntariado no Roca e agradeço de coração pela oportunidade.
