Yes, your WooCommerce site requires hosting if you want it to be accessible on the internet. You may work on your WooCommerce on your local computer without hosting, but if you wish to publish it live, then you need to sign up for hosting that supports WooCommerce.
WooCommerce is a plugin for the CMS called WordPress. If you wish to build an online shop, you would get both WordPress and WooCommerce installed for a start. That means that essentially the hosting requirements for servicing both of these softwares are the same. The difference is in the quantity of the server resources that may be needed to ensure the proper functioning of a site built on WordPress vs. one built on WooCommerce. Usually, online shops built on WooCommerce use more server resources than websites built on WordPress and hence, hosting WooCommerce may be more expensive. Of course, it all depends on how big your site or e-shop is and especially how big their databases are. The bigger the sites, the heavier resource users they become.
Starting an online store is easier and cheaper than you may think! One of the most popular and free ways to build an e-shop is WooCommerce, which is a plugin for WordPress CMS. If you choose to use WooCommerce, you get free and very flexible software, which does not require development skills to get you started.
