Learning & Fun


I learnt a lot and have a lot of fun at Felicidade hostel. It’s important to communicate from the beginning the days off and the hours of work per day. Stephane and his team were great! I practiced my french, went to beautiful places by bike, learn to play pool, swam at the public pool and have a great time. Thank you!

Everyone exceptionally friendly. However the number of hours we were asked to work & the days off we were given where not respected. There where days we worked 6-10hours a day and after 2 weeks of work, we only had 1 day off. We decided to leave 3 days earlier because we were tired with this situation. The bedroom we were first asigned was cozy, the 2nd room we were asked to change had leaks, was really dirty and with nowhere to put our things in. On the other hand we had acces to a pool & bycicles. Recomend coming here only if you eatablish a priori days off and hours pf work.

I worked more days and hours each day but this was a personal choice.
Gisele, Emily and Dominique are nice people to work with. My favourite was the bar shift with Dominique. Me and the other world packer worked the full bar shift from 7pm to midnight because we really enjoyed it. It was not something we planned, but we lost track of time because we were having so much fun.

Once you get a hang of how to do things, its easy sailing from there.

Viajar a Francia para colaborar con el Felicidade Hostel es como ir a reencontrarte con viejos amigos...

Conocer a Stephane y a todos sus colaboradores fue una experiencia muy gratificante y enriquecedora, me acogieron de inmediato como otro más del equipo y todos fueron extremadamente amables y gentiles conmigo...

Stéphane es una persona con una calidad humana extraordinaria y siempre me hizo sentir como su amigo y espero que el también me haya visto así...

Mi estancia ahí fue muy tranquila. Uno tiene que ir con una mentalidad zen para poder disfrutar de esta gran oportunidad .

La experiencia es muy grata y enriquecedora. Stéphano es un excelente anfitrión me dio la libertad y la confianza para hacer y propornerle actividades que mejorasen el hostal. Dominique la mano derecha de Stéphano tiene toda la paciencia y disposición de ayudarte. Las personas de Mer son muy amigables y solidarias, te ayudan a practicar tu francés . Es una experiencia maravillosa para practicar tu francés, conocer la region de Loir y sus castillos; pero sobre todo un lugar para hacer buenos amigos. Y por si eso no basta; el pan, el queso y el vino son verdaderamente deliciosos y buenos.
