I stayed at Hostel Quetzal in May 2011, and can say that it was one of the best hostels I've ever been to in terms of fostering a community atmosphere and making the guests feel comfortable. And having travelled to 37+ countries, that's saying a lot!
The dinners each night were really delicious (plus free shots, if that's your thing!), and it was a great opportunity to meet the other guests staying there. I was travelling with friends, but kept thinking that this would be so ideal if you were travelling solo, because the atmosphere is so conducive to meeting new people. We met up with several other travellers from Quetzal to travel with us for part of our trip.
The location is great - bars and supermarkets nearby, a plaza that always has some event going on around the corner, extremely easy and cheap to hop on the bus to the beach. They also provide towels for guests to use, and free wifi, and most nights the staff arrange group trips to one of the clubs on the hotel strip if you want to party.
I never had any problems with showers/water pressure like another review says, although it was a year since I've been there. I really can't recommend this hostel highly enough.
