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.

O Bella 269 foi a terceira experiência minha e do meu namorado e foi sensacional! O hostel é um casarão com terraço o que faz o local ser um charme, cheio de decorações legais 🥰 Carla e Leo são hosts super queridos e atenciosos, sempre dispostos a dialogar e melhorar a convivência ao máximo. Tivemos noites de filmes e socialização entre hosts e packers com comidinhas ☺️ O trabalho é bem organizado e divididos em horários. As tarefas são fáceis de realizar, mesmo pra quem não tem experiência eles explicam tudo. Muchas gracias por la expericencia super buena onda ❤️ recomendo a todos!

O hostal é muito bem localizado e as pessoas são muito "buena onda". O trabalho é tranquilo e tudo dentro do combinado... Carla e Leo são ótimos anfitriões. Iriamos ficar 20 dias e aumentamos para 34. Muito obrigado à familia Bella 269. 🙏
