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.

The best treatment I've ever had! Stephane's one of the kindest people I've ever met - caring, protective, and supportive, always made sure I was fine. The work is flexible, everything is done in agreement with the team and everybody functions together like a big family. The hostel is a big, beautiful, well-equipped house. Mer is a very small town, lovely and well-organised, so if you're looking for peace and quiet and the place where you can easily meet locals and hang out with them, this is the right place. Most clients are also very nice, helpful, and friendly. Unforgettable experience!

Felicidade Hostel was great! The hosts are fair with all that is describe here. When you arrive, Stephane comes to ask you what you want to eat and he buys everything that you ask, very kind! The hostel is very close to the train station, which is amazing to know the near cities and I loved the Val du Loire, the place where Mer is, it's magical, with a view!

Stephani, is great! He will help you as much as he can. The Hostel stays ditry frequently, because of the manager and crew don´t clean their dishes, bathrooms (that you share) and space after they work, especially on those days that Stephani goes to Paris
The working time is flexible, but sometimes you don´t know what time you should start next day until is late of the nigth
You will work at the breakfast, cleaning the rooms and at the bar. At the bar is really good to develop your french and know the people from the town (who are nice)
Mer is a small city, but you can visit many castels

My time there was awesome!!! That was a great choice!!! Everybody there is super!!! Stephane is a very nice guy, buys us food every week and we prepare our own food. The staff there are great and the hostel is very cozy. The only thing is that Mer has nothing to do there. Anyway, you can go to the train station and go around the cities like Orleans, Tours, Blois and visit very beautiful castles. Paris is 1h 1/2 from there by train, but it was a great vacation. The tasks were simple since it was low season and you can make the most of it!!! Thank you so much, guys!!!

Felicidade has been an amazing experience! Since the first day Stephane, the owner of the hostel, made you feel like home and all the volunteers were like family. Eventhough Mer it's a really quite town, there're plenty of other cities around: Beaugency (full of activities), Orleans, Blois, Chambord, Tours and Chenonceau. If you want to relax a bit but also travel around, I recommend staying there for three weeks. Choose Felicidade, you won't regret it! Quite village, but the most amazing people! :)

Felicidade hostel was my "first" and I couldn't be happier I picked it to start my wp experience. As soon as I arrived I got offered a couple of beers by Stephane who showed me around the city and told me a bit about himself, then I was told all the tasks I had to do in a simple but clear way so that I was immediately up and running. Stephane is the kind of leader that hides in plain sight, the staff felt like family from day one and the overall atmosphere was very chilled and "zen". Mer is not your "rock n roll" town but the hostel makes up for it. Definitely recommend it. I feel saudade.

This experience is being one of the best things that happened in my life . I am very grateful to Worldpackers and Stephane for this opportunity . The days here are quite pleasant , cheerful and quiet. Really I felt at home from the moment I arrived and was warmly welcomed . I learned a lot in those days and still had the opportunity to know places and incredible and unforgettable people and practice the French language . Thanks for everything!

It was an amazing experience since the day I arrived here! The place reminds me of home and the tasks were very easily but carefully made. The atmosphere was awesome! People are funny, happy and lively! Stephano is also a very kind and funny boss and person. The city is very romantic and close to the castles in Loire region. I totally recommend that you come to Felicidade hostel!!! My first yet awesome worldpacker experience! #spreadinglove 👍👍👍💗

I truly recommend this hostel.
The staff's lovely, starting from the owner, Stephane, to Diego and Edinho. They are all very kind and they help you for everything you need.
The tasks are easy to do and it's also easy to learn how to do things, like cleaning the rooms or serving beers at the bar, talking to the clients who help you speaking and learning French. The people of Mer are very kind and always interested in your opinions.
The hostel itself is a small cozy place to stay. Mer is a nice town, but there's not too much to do.
It was a nice experience!

Felicidade to everyone! :)
