My experience at Guanaaní was fantastic! I was right from the beginning that I had made a good choice and would've a great time. The house, the city and the beaches melted my heart and the people I've known will be unforgetable. Caio and Mainá were always there to help me and the others volunteers, which made the whole difference. They're the best, trust me! I'd definitely recommed that big yellow house, if you are looking for adventure at a hostel for the first time. :)

O Hostel Guanaani foi minha primeira experiência de voluntariado com a WP. Foi e está sendo muito ruim pra mim. Marquei de ficar lá por 3 meses pois eu sou do Candomblé e ficaria próxima do meu terreiro morando lá. Enfim, não demorou 1 semana para que minha vaga fosse cancelada pela anfitriã Lena, e o motivo que ela deu foi justamente a minha falta de disponibilidade nos finais de semana (dias geralmente ocupados pelas funções que tenho no terreiro ou pelo meu trabalho autônomo). Como pessoa negra e de ancestralidade indígena não tem como não racializar o que aconteceu.

Estar no Guanaaní foi uma experiência incrível e transformadora! Me conectei com as pessoas que passaram por lá e vivi dias lindos em Vitória. E que cidade linda! O Hostel é super bem localizado e pudemos aproveitar diferentes partes da cidade. Agradeço a Lena por todo acolhimento e aos outros voluntários e viajantes que conheci pelos maravilhosos momentos juntos!

O Guanaani é um espaço maravilhoso e a Lena uma anfritriã excepcional. As tarefas eram muito confortáveis e sempre rolava de fazer amizade com os hospedes. Além de ter supermercados perto e as bikes, que por um preço acessível, podiam ser usadas. O hostel vai ficar na memória.

La experiência mas linda. Contenta de haber pasado por ese hostel, fue poco el tiempo, pero suficiente para encariñarme con el lugar y su gente. LENA es increible una persona muy amorosa y comprensible♡♡♡♡♡
