My time at the Felicidade Hostel couldn’t be better!! Mer is a small pretty city that is situated in a region with plenty of other cities that you can go easily by train on your time off!! Letícia, the manager is an extraordinary person, always doing everything she can to help everyone, and every work day, she makes sure that you just work for the 6 hours you need, and any more than that!! I worked at the bar most of the days and i really could improve my french. So if you are looking for a calm place to meet nice people and get to know the french culture, this is the best place!!

Felicidade Hostel was an amazing experience! I met awesome people, and both Leticia and Manu were kind and welcoming. The work consists of easy tasks such as working on the bar- which gives you a great opportunity in improving your French in practicing with the locals- and cleaning the rooms. Felicidade Hostel immediately felt like home and everyone takes care of each other here like in a family. Highly recommend you join their team and gain some great memories like I did. Will miss you all dearly!

My first volunteering was awesome at felicidade hostel!
The working hours were absolutely followed, the host team is amazing and really friendly (i mean, brazilians, right? haha) and you have time to go around and visit the cities near you! I could perfectly practice my french when the locals would come or when I was out. The tasks required are well taught and easy to do, so dont worry!
I'll never forget my two months there, leticia, stephane, manu or guigui, it was a life experience. Thank you so much for everything!

I had my first volunteering experience at the "felicidade" and I just have good things to say about it! The activities are very easy (cleaning the rooms, doing the breakfast for the clients and help at the bar/restaurant). We worked 6 hours/day with 2 days to explore the region (and it is really easy because the train station is right next to the hostel). I would like to enjoy this space to thank Letícia, Manu and Guigui for all the receptivity with me during this 2 months of volunteering! They are definitely people I'll take with me for life! <3 I really recommend Felicidade Hostel!

Felicidade hostel was my first experience at Worldpackers and I can say that there’s no better place to beginners. I really felt like home. Leticia was very open and flexible with dates and hours. Manu and Guigui are amazing people, they received me as a member of the family. The accommodation is comfortable and the ambience cool. There was a different types of tasks, so I could learn lot of things and not got bored doing the same thing all the time. And also, it was good to practice my French. It was an amazing experiencie. I highly recommend It! Miss u guys.
