My experience at Leticia and Stephane`s was very pleasant. Leticia somehow gives us a little autonomy to run the hostel (by sharing activities) which in a managerial perspective is very good. besides that, the fact that you can meet locals and make friends at the bar is a plus
I recommend it!

Overall it was a good experience but due to some lack of organization sometimes some people would do way more work than others or less than others (i was in these 2 types of situation). Anyway it was a chill place and if you want to discover the real French culture you definitely need to come here. Thank you again to Stephane and Émeline :)

The treatment I received was really as if I was there just to work. There is no cultural exchange or fun. Mer is such a small city so you have no much to do, you don't even seeing many people on the streets. They say "bike disposal" but during my stay there, all the ones were broken. I have no complaints about the worked hours, it's fair enough. In my personal experience it was kind of frustrating, but I think it might be because I didn't arrive in a good time. I do recommend if you are looking for a place to relax or running away from big cities.

It was a great volunteer experience for me. I learned a lot with everyone, and I leave it with the certainty that I left my mark, I tried 110% to do the best job that I can hostel in exchange I received much more than I imagined from people. If you go ,be sure that it will be very well received, and a small town, has few inhabitants, a great place to rest and, the local commerce closes at 7 pm, after that the people meet in the Hostel area where the bar and restaurant are. I recommend also to learn basics of French, or google translate... Also go to visit around Mer,Chambord , and Paris...
