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

We appreciate your stay and taking time to review the property. All the AC's on the premises have been serviced. They are now working well with no leakages. 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. Room, grubby, messy and no wage, got given a bucket. So don't even think about warm shower. Everything takes so long which is part of... More

Thank you for your stay at commending the lady at the front desk and food area. Quite surprised the room was mentioned to be messy and grubby; and not sure what you meant by wage.

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

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...

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!
