Redbelly snakes are usually a pretty good choice. They eat earthworms, are incredibly docile, stay small, and are very hardy. Avoid ringneck snakes like the plague. They're really common in a lot of places, but as a general rule, they don't eat well in captivity. In the wild, their diet consists mainly of amphibian eggs, and termites, so they're kind of hard to feed. Worm snakes aren't a bad choice if you don't mind a snake that stays underground most of the time. They're an attractive little snake, never bite, and eat mainly earthworms and slugs. Rough earth snakes also fit into that category. I'd also recommend garters, they're really easy to take care of, they usually tame down, and they're very common. Ribbon snakes are pretty good too, they're like a smaller, more attractive little garter snake. Anyway, hope this helps.
Kevin
