Just spent a great few nights at Buena Onda in San Juan Del Sur. nothing to do with the same hostel in Matagalpa of the same name.
The owner is fantastic, so kind and helpful and v generous to boot - fresh watermelon juice anyone?
The hostel looks and feels brand new, and is a great location. Only 5 minutes out of town, gives you the best views of the sea and surrounding area, minus all the craziness of being in the centre.
If you have the choice I would take a room upstairs. Yes it may be closer to the communal areas, but it gets more of the breeze and is further from the bugs that Nicaragua is so good at housing.
I took a mosquito net and was really glad I did to give me peace of mind, but not essential by any means.
Would I go back? In a heart beat, I had a fantastic time.
