Twas ok. Close enough to the stadium where I came for an assignment. Free wifi was helpful, but halfway thru the night it stopped working. Food was good and restaurant had tasty food. De inclusive breakfast was filling and tasty. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Overall was a real good value for de cost. Would stay again.

I stayed in Pink Hostel a total of one week. I would highly recommend it. It's located in a gentrified, safe neighborhood. The dormitory room I stayed is air-conditioned, clean, with four bunkbeds, but when I was there, it was never been full to its capacity of eight. If you are friendly with the staff, they reciprocate with more warmth... More

Having tried a few hostels and hotels in Asylum Down beforehand, we chose Pink. When we and our friends arrived, most of whom were visiting Africa for... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with a group of 20 en route to other parts of Ghana. The rooms were clean, beds were comfy, and the water was hot. I wish the bathrooms were a little cleaner and better kept. The staff was friendly. The food at the restaurant was tasty and fairly-priced. It was only a 10-15 minute taxi... More

The Pink Hostel is a place where you can stay, since it is centrally located and a safe surrounding, but the rooms and facilities are not the best. I stayed there twice during my stay in Ghana. The first time I had a small single without ventilation (the window was not to open). The second time I had a similar... More

I stayed a week at Pink Hostel simply because of two upsides - it is centrally located and lots of travelers pass through here. Apart from that it was very run down, dirty, had severe water damage, unventilated rooms, unprofessional staff, was chaotic and overpriced. I don't understand what criteria they use to put themselves in this price bracket (don't... More

I was sad to see this review from you the first time as I know that many of our staff went out of their way to provide you personal in many ways that were even un-related to your stay at Pink Hostel.

Some of the service was a little relaxed and not up to scratch, but Godfred made this place. Clean beds, good breakfast and reasonable restaurant. Location is fairly central. Bathrooms could do with some work.

The nice thing about the Pink Hostel is the atmosphere, with loads of interesting people staying when I was there, partially due to the communal spaces and links to NGOs. The food is also good and good value and the location is fairly central and completely safe. Negatives are the lack of clothes washing facilities (hostel fees are extortionate here),... More
