I've stayed in Hostal Don Diego twice, for a total time of nearly two weeks. It's well-located, two blocks from central park and a decent grocery store.
Free internet is a great plus (but the hostel's computer is charged)
The kitchen needs better stock, some pans can spin 360 degrees on their handles, the remainder have no non-stick surface remaining.
The staff are courteous and friendly. I had to print one page out and the manager took care of it for me when I could not find anywhere to print a scanned document.
Both hot showers worked when I was first here, only one worked when I passed through again, but there was no line for it. Laundry facilities were there (but I hand-washed all my clothes) and hot water was available all times of the day for showers or for tea/coffee (not included).
I would stay here again. 45Q per night is decent for this good hostel.
I was here during the 7.4 Richter scale earthquake that struck 15 miles off the Pacific coast. The entire city shook and plaster came off the walls. This hostel held up just fine, the power didn't and was out for a few hours. I still managed to get my hair cut by one of the barber shops running a generator.More
