Tortuga Booluda is definitely the best hostel I have ever stayed in. It has lots of amenities, including a book exchange, free internet, free coffee all day, and a spotlessly clean shared kitchen. Everything is very well maintained and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. There was a great mix of travelers, but everyone was very respectful. The best part is the interior courtyard space, which is very nice for relaxing and passing time with other travelers.
This is definitely NOT a party hostel, so if that is what you are looking for there are other options in Leon. But, if you like a clean and well-stocked kitchen, a secure setting, knowledgeable staff, nice (and clean!) accomodations and friendly travelers, this is the place.
