I liked Colibri a lot. It was one of the first places I've stayed in Central America where I didn't need to sleep with earplugs (unless you get the room all the way at the back; there is a rowdy rooster next door). Granted my travel partner and I and two other travellers were the only guests, but it is situated in a way that reduces outside noise.
The coffee was excellent, another thing that has been in surprisingly short supply so far through Central America. The WiFi connection was strong enough to spend an afternoon Skyping.
Kevin at the desk helped us with some local security guards to park our motorcycles in a safe place for the two nights we stayed, so we were free to walk around Leon. It is a very walkable town, and the hostel is centrally located.
Overall it was an excellent place and one I would return to next time I go through Leon.
