I really enjoyed my time at LHA. Mederic is a cool and nice person, as the others members of the team. LHA is well located as it was easy to move to anywhere and quickly to maintown; even Thames river was close (10min walking).

It was my first experience of volunteering and it was wonderful.
Only 3 hours a day, the work isn't too difficult.

The hostel is very well located and I was able to enjoy the city very much.
As there are about 10 rotating volunteers each month, you can make good friends.

I loved it, maybe I'll come back one day.

I had a great time at Halpin House thanks to the other volunteers I met there. We immediately bonded and we became such a supportive family. Mederic has been a thoughtful and caring host since the first day.
The schedule was always respected and flexible and the job wasn't that hard.
Just an info for the new people coming: this is not a regular hostel, it's a government charity residency, so you can find really different kinds of people.
Overall, it's been a growing and enjoyable experience that I'm gonna carry in my heart.

Mederic is a good host, he was attentive to our requests, when I was volunteering there we were 3 vegetarians and they bought food for us. I had the opportunity to work also as a night porter and I loved it. Thanks, Mederic and everyone, I'll always remember my time at Halpin.

Mederic is amazing! Kind, respectful, comprehensive, and involved, he’s takes care of our needs and he’s always making sure we’re good. All the other volunteers and the staff were also fantastic. I made friends that I love and I’ll keep for life.
