My experience was so great I wanna go back! Working hours are short, the tasks simple enough and the people there so super nice :) I enjoyed this experience very much. It was my first worldpackers experience and I'm very grateful to Nancy for giving me the opportunity

I had a nice stay at the Auberge and it had everything I was looking for: it was calm, the staff was very nice and the working schedule left enough time to do other things throughout the afternoon. In addition, Toulouse is very easy and affordable to reach. The benefits were great and there were plenty of opportunities to speak and practice French. You get to meet locals and foreigners alike, and I found this a nice balance. Nancy and her family are always taking care of everything and the other employees are just as friendly. I recomend the auberge for volunteers and guests alike.

My experience at Friendly Auberge was great. Everyone there was really kind and there was always a relaxed, calm atmosphere. Food is amazing, travel to Toulouse town centre is quick and cheap. Would definitely recommend it :)
