Only you can tell which is best for you. I use pidgin (gtk+), shipped in Slackware as hexchat. If not already done see this.

I have no experience with command line clients, wait for other answers.

If the whole GUI of Pidgin is too much, Finch ships with pidgin. It works great over a ssh tunnel with GNU screen. Keybindings can be a bit tricky though.

There's mcabber too in Slackware. It is curses based so you can use it in a terminal without X. It supports OTR and GPG encrypted connections, multi-user chat etc. Nice and small.

I'm using Pidgin on a regular basis, even though it's a PITA to get it to work with LetsEncrypt SSL certificates. If you value privacy, use pidgin-otr.
