Pink Hostel is an attractive budget accommodation option in rather expensive Accra. The room was basic but clean, AC was working as well as water. No complains whatsoever. The same for breakfast - basic but good enough to get power for couple of hours. The place is well located, relatively close to the airport which makes it good when in... More

The hostel is located in a serene,safe area in Accra.The hostel is very neat and offers fantastic menu in the restaurant.They also free breakfast for guests.The staff are very polite and friendly.However,the hostel is sold out in the summer.Make your reservations early! I stayed 5 nights in a double room.The bed was quite comfortable.

This was my second stay at Pink Hostel, having stayed there in 2013. Ghana has changed a lot since my last visit and the power being off for 12 hours a day came as a bit of a shock. One day it was off for 24 hours. This wouldn't be a problem if the generator was switched on but when... More

Thank you for staying at Pink Hostel and this review. Ghana is experiencing load shedding which is making life a little uncomfortable. We have days that we do not have power for 24hrs. It is improving by the day though. With this we put on the generator at night. As the machine also needs to rest. over working it could... More

The rooms are clean and with AC. Still 160cd a night is a bit overpriced for a place like this. Internet was slow or not working and the restaurant was quite limited. Luckily there's a good Indian restaurant (Yokos) down the road with great food and proper wifi. Staff made up for a lot... Very helpfull and super friendly... All... More

Thank you for choosing Pink Hostel for your stay in Accra. The issue with the wifi was from our service provider (it was a general problem nationwide). Our rates are quite on the low side comparing to other hotels with the same amenities. (AC, hot water, wifi, buffet breakfast etc). With the menu, we sincerely apologize if it was too... More

Location ok, room very basic and in need of some basic TLC... Staff pretty apathetic and breakfast a little underwhelming... The biggest issue though was waking up to a couple of cms of water in our room.... Judging by the number of buckets around the hostel, I would suspect that this is a regular problem...

I came to Pink, at 11pm after discovering my airb host had bailed out on me at the airport arrivals. Stayed 2 nights, all was good, location and value for money. Bright amazed me with his ability to go on without sleep! Breakfast was good, would have been more enjoyable if the staff kept their conversations less loud. Thank you... More

It's not easy to find a good mix of affordability and hospitality, but Pink Hostel fits the bill. Dorms are a little bit more than other countries in Africa, but quite a deal for West Africa, Ghana in particular and they have air-con! Mrs. Inkoom helped me with paperwork for my visa and all the staff answered my emails promptly... More

I stayed for 4 nights at Pink Hostel and it was overall a wonderful place to stay. When I first arrived I was informed that there was a problem with their registration system and they did not receive that I reserved a single room (I booked through Expedia). So I had to stay in the dorm room for 2 nights... More

I found the Pink Hostel to be toward the top tier in terms of lodging in Accra. They offer climate controlled rooms, wifi, and private rooms with their own baths and hot water. It is actually its own little compound, with security at the gate and most of what you would need onsite. The onsite restaurant is very good- I... More
