My experience with Hostel Alice was incredibly unique and fulfilling! It took a while for me to get comfortable with the rhythm of the hostel, but everyone was patient, supportive, and welcoming. My portuguese improved so much! The positive energy and connection between the staff made me feel relaxed and comfortable. The responsibilies of the Worldpackers was very organized. I greatly appreciated how everyone took their responsibilities seriously and showed personal care for their home. Overall, my experience at Hostel Alice brought me into a community of acceptance without judgement.

Since day 1 it’s been family. The people that work here watch out for each other and it’s a super chill environment. The work is set in a orderly fashion and if you do your job you’ll have no problems. I even took one day work outta my week by hosting an English meeting at the hostel. Roman Renata & Denise are the best and I could literally stay here forever. It’s super comfortable like that. I don’t know how much longer I’ll stay but I know I got a place that feels like home in SP. Valeu galera

it was my second experience as worldpacker : an unique position by working in the reception. Thereupon, i could have the chance to learn all the reservation proceedings , so it gave me the opportunity to Interact in person with cool guests from Brazil and abroad too. As a result of this, I'll also lead this my new background to a lifetime. I'd like to thank my awesome stay and help to the owners Denise ,Renata and the manager Dante as well . Hostel alice 's been innovating with new conquests inside the venue , and I truly wish all the best for their endeavor. Many ,Many thanks!!

The volunteering at Hostel Alice was a great experience, probably one of the best hostels for worldpackers in São Paulo. Renata and Denise are always looking for ways to aprimorate our job, we have feedbacks every week, and if you have some difficulties, both of them will totally be able to understand and help ourselves to get better. The vibe between the volunteers is like a real family. Furthermore, the place is cute and clean. There will always be a place in my heart for the people (the volunteers and guests!) that I have met there.
