I stayed with my partner for one night at La Niña, in a private room overlooking the street. The price is right, and includes free computer use, towels, wi-fi, and breakfast. Showers were very clean, with good water pressure and hot water. The vibe is relaxed and familiar. La Niña is quieter than the sister hostel La Pinta (located two blocks away), which is a good spot to socialize as they have a bar and nice big outdoor area. Many people sleep at La Niña but socialize at la Pinta, as we did.
Breakfast was quite nice - fruit, coffee, cereal, toast and jam. They also have snacks and drinks (beer, too) for sale for very reasonable prices. The kitchen is modern and everything works....they have a hammock available if you ask at the desk, which you can hang in the front and chill out and read.
Staff, as per my interactions, have always been friendly and amazing, in particular Andres and Julia who are really charismatic and knowledgeable about the area, in addition to speaking great English.
I went on a tour led by Andres to Quebrada la Vieja (ask at the front desk), which was g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s hiking and an amazing view of the city, and a bike tour down 7th street to La Candelaria. (the bikes are rented through La Pinta) Definitely recommended.
