My experience in Felicidade, it was great! I found a little Brazil in France😍, who welcomed me very well, the hostel is very cozy, it has everything you need, the job is very easy and flexible, you have a lot of time to explore around! I will miss the moments lived in that beautifull and lovely place, obrigado💙

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!

I enjoyed the time I was there. And I had the time to visit Castle that are near there.

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.
