Time and time again I've given pink hostel a couple of chances. Mainly because I became great friends with one of the workers (Augie) . My first visit there last year in July was decent. But the staff at the time was also a lot better. My second visit in October was ok but I was greeted by staff asking... More

We stayed in this hostel for about 3weeks. Normal price per night is 50.49euros (220ghanaian cedis) for a private room for two people.They are charging more than the room deserves. Actualy it seems that all hostels and hotels we looked at and have stayed at charged more than they should in Accra. In finland and many countries in europe you... More

This Hostel has a lot of sleeping options (private and group rooms), gate that locks, a great complementary breakfast every morning, and indoor and outdoor seating. While I volunteered in Ghana I went here with a few European friends I met up north. I recommend this place but to be safe, always take your valuables with you when you leave... More

I spent 3 nights at this place. Their staff is very friendly and helpful, my room was OK, although one socket did not work at all, and the AC was leaking. One morning there was no running water, but I guess that can simply happen in Accra during dry season. It is certainly not one of the cheapest places in... More

The water pump has also been replaced so there is always running water. The stability of the WiFi is from our service providers. We can do very little from our end concerning... More

Experienced several rooms, each falling apart in some way, but old hands tell me the place is on the up. Adequate food, and a good external space for eating and maybe meeting others. Fair for its price but could do with bringing in some handyman for a week to fix things.

The lady at the front desk and the girl in the food area (cannot call if it a restaurant) were super, if only the rest of the staff and place were as good as them.

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
