I'd recommend this hostel for travelers who are looking for a chill place. There's an amazing terrace to hang out and it's quiet enough for you to study and read. All the volunteers (which are mostly Brazilian) and the staff are super buena onda (gracias, Katty, Cata and Fran!). The location is amazing, a lot of cool places are walking distance or a short metro trip away. The only major downsides are the kitchen, which could be much better equipped (no stove :/) and our bathroom, which was under construction the whole time, which caused us some problems, initially.

Staying in Bella 269 was a very nice experience. The Hostel is extremely well located, there are supermarkets, parks, museums, restaurants, bars, and everything you may need on a walking distance.
The other staff of the hostel are very nice people. We had once in a while very nice meals together. Bella 269 is a quiet place, the rooms are not shared very often. So the travelers are mainly in closed groups.
The hostel have a very nice terrace to go to at night. But some other aspects are lacking. There is no stove or oven. Cooking can be made in a microwave only. Also reparations take long.

Foi uma experiência agradável. No inicio pensei que seria difícil, porem me adaptei. Foi a primeira vez que trabalhei num hostal, então foi uma boa experiência para aprendizado. Toda a equipe se esforça em ter um bom relacionamento com todos. Obrigado Carla, Kathy e Seba pela oportunidade

Primeira experiência fora do meus pais vivendo como nômade digital (trabalhando on-line) e fazendo voluntariado. Decidi viver essa experiência pra me submergir na cultura local e praticar espanhol. Sou grato pela flexibilidade e fluidez no trabalho. Acredito que pode melhorar os quarto dos voluntários e um café da manhã mais equipado. Gracias por todo.
