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

Foi uma boa experiência. Houve flexibilidade nos horários e nas tarefas.
A pequenina cidade é um charme, mas quase sem movimento. Vale conhecer e curtir um pouco do "agito" das cidades próximas.
O Stephane e a equipe me deixaram à vontade e eu indico a experiência!!!
Só tenho a agradecer! =)

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! :)

Eu não esperava que a experiência tivesse sido tão maravilhosa quanto foi. Stephano é simplesmente o melhor chefe do mundo. Na verdade ele nos trata todos como seus amigos colaboradores e faz questão que todos se sintam bem e felizes. Para isso nos levou pra dar umas voltas no kart da cidade e pagou nossas entradas pra piscina pública da cidade, fora que compra o tipo de comida que a gente diz que gosta de comer e sempre que fazemos um bom trabalho nos oferece aquela cervejinha. O trabalho é simples facilmente podemos negociar as folgas/horas de trabalho. Resumindo:experiencia nota mil.

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.
