“Sleep like a baby”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Small personal hostel. Custom built bunk beds with tons of room between beds to sit up comfortably, great mattresses and linens so you will sleep like a baby. Super clean hostel and convenient location to all things Miraflores with out any of the noise of the central area. I stayed on three occasions and each subsequent visit was treated more and more like family. Staff is unassuming but very helpful and gracious.

Room Tip: Female dorm is the best!

Loved the place and staff. very friendly and helpfull.


Great location and nice gardens near by. Unlike the rest of south America this place is teaming with cats rather than dogs. They rule the roost and very cute.

Hostel ameneties very good and Wifi throughout.

Link Hostel is located 5-10 mins walk to the main plaza in Miraflores, it's a pink hostel from the outside and we stayed in the purple room (double ensuite) which is beautiful and cozy. A hug king size bed, very high ceiling, hot water shower, a large window... all are so lovely. We can't imagine that it's a hostel but the room itself should be 5 stars in Europe. A small kitchen, a common room with large LCD TV, basis breakfast (bun), stable wifi, 2 guest computers on the ground floor.

Staff are nice and helpful, and the price is so reasonable for the level of its room.

You get the basics here - warm bed, hot shower, internet and breakfast. It is a pretty good deal. The staff are friendly and helpful and the other guests are likewise. I´m giving this place a 5/5 because the ceilings are high (no bumped heads on bunk beds or door frames) and because when they convert USD and PEN they do so fairly. A lot of other places would act like an exchange house when you settled the bill, but when I compared payment in soles and dollars the amount of money I was giving them came out the same. I really appreciated the fair-handedness.

I found this place late at night when many other hostels in Miraflores were full. I had a room to myself on the first night and only one other roommate on the second night. Cheap, clean, and friendly, with free internet. Bag storage was helpful on my last day, too.
