Staying with Elena and Paco was like staying with relatives. They were warm and friendly, the house was sparkling clean, food was delicious. Orquideas is a sweet little self-contained suburb on a mountainside, with restaurants, shops, and laundry all within walking distance. To get to the Historic District you need to take a bus, but it's 25¢ and less than 10 minutes, and the bus stop is around the corner. A peaceful, pleasant stay (not a party hostel!). You will need to speak some Spanish.
awesome place. Paco and family were all very friendly and accommodating. Offer rides to and from the airport which was huge. Also offer breakfast and dinner. Only bad part was the location. Far from downtown which isn't an issue during the day while the busses are running, but at night when the busses stop you have to take a cab and not all the drivers know the neighborhood they are in. overall a great stay. I would recommend it.
