I was very well received by Valerie and her family. Valerie is very kind and polite. She was one of the nicest hosts I have ever met. My time in the hostel was very good, but as I went in winter it ended up being a little lonely, as I was the only volunteer there. But with the time off I managed to visit Marseille, which is a beautiful neighboring city. Working hours were respected and time off was also respected and the work was not heavy. The tasks are basically to maintain the cleanliness of the apartments upstairs and the hostel in general.

I had a great time volunteering at the hostel, location is great, you will stay in a 6 BR dorms by the pool. Super clean, great atmosphere, easy tasks related to housekeeper, cleaning, check-in as well. Be responsible, learn what needs to be done and everything will be great, after that you will have plenty of free time. VALÉRIE is super friendly, fair, and responsible, for instance if u need a particular day off she can manage that. You will practice English and of course French too. Fully recommended by me, Thanks Valérie for making my 7 weeks here just unforgettable !!! Merci. LOL

This experience was really fun and so helpful for improving my French. Valerie was really lovely and accommodating, it really helps if you make an effort to speak/learn some French. The work only took the mornings, it was very important to get everything done before you can leave but it was nice to have the whole afternoons and evenings to go to the beach or explore the area. Met some really lovely people and spent lots of time in the pool :)

Hello, this was my first experience, and it couldn't have been better. From the reception by hostess Valerie and her family, everyone was so kind. Tasks are as per the description. Valerie is flawless! Concerned about our well-being, she encourages conversation in French and makes delicious crepes. I felt very welcome and would highly recommend the hostel experience. I practiced French, English, met special people, like Aldana and Anouk. I was very happy here, and I would like to say see you soon. I wish you and your family all the best Valerie, thank you so much for everything. Juliane

This was my first world packers experience. I enjoyed staying at Valerie's hostel. In front of the shared bed room there's a fantastic view and a very nice pool to spend some good time at. Also the tasks (housekeeping, cleaning) were well communicated and easy to understand. It's necessary that everything will be done till new guests arrived. But after work you have enough time to explore the hostel, the surroundings and of course Marseille (I recommend a lot!!!). I met great people there and really hope to come back one day … A big thanks to Valerie and her husband. :)
