Guanaja Backapackers Hostel is a unique place and I can absolutely recommend it to fellow volunteers and travelers. The island setting is just mindblowing in every aspect, Aaron and Mary are very kind and they make sure you have everything what you might need to have a really pleasant experience. The workload is fair and being done your daily tasks you are basically on an island holiday where you can enjoy snorkeling, hiking, roaming in the tropical forest and connecting with nature. Thanks Aaron and Mary ,I wish you all the best!!

So amazing experience! This hostel was the best choice for my first time volunteering. I really felt I was in a place I could call home, so calm and comfortable. It is perfect for old souls who like good music too! Guanaja is full of history. You can know many places there if you are an aventurer.
Aaron is so nice, he know how to make the place awesome. Everyday works you have to help, but they will not feel as a work because you will love the place surrounded by nature, beach and cute animals! I did my photography work too.
Definitely planning to come back! Thanks for everything.

Thanks Aaron for everything, it was fucking awesome experience of my first time volunteering!
The host Arron is a super nice, talkative and funny guy, the only thing you have to do just ask if you don’t really know what to do, and that would be perfect if you have any idea to make this place better.
Also, I was working with two volunteers, they are super outgoing, being so much patient with me and we had so much fun every day!
Anyway, I do enjoy the life in Guanaja and I bet that you would definitely fall in love with this gorgeous island if you are looking for real natural life!
