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

Pink hostel is a basic clean place with dorms and single/double rooms. It's location is quite good. It's quite cheap given rates in hotels across the country. The staff is friendly and helpful. Food in the restaurant is very good. Good wi-fi and AC. If you are travelling alone, at least here you will always find enjoyable company.

Decent place, my wife and I have stayed there three times in a double room, and will come again asap as it seems to be the best place for that price. AC and wi-fi is great, basic maintanance would help, but this is Africa, and we are used since we live in the neighbouring country, nothing to complain about at... More

I reserved a single room and I must admit that I was surprised by the cleanliness, and spaciousness of the room. This was was my first time staying in a Hostel, so I must admit Pink Hostel pleasantly exceeded my expectations. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgable especially Eunice and Bright. As a solo traveler I felt safe, and... More

Both the dorms and bedrooms were clean and the wifi is excellent. Showers are a bit temperamental but water was always hot. Breakfast was really good especially when the apple or pineapple cake was on

Excellent staff and fast internet connection, near the city and ease of travel whether you use public means or taxi. Taxis are available all round apart from very late at night. Next to a major road leading to Osu market and the national Museum.

Close enough to the centre of town, this hostel is good value for money. The staff were polite and helpful (think it depends who you get to an extent), they were accommodating when we arrived very late at night from Tamale. Unfortunately there were no lockers, but the dorm rooms were standard dorm rooms aside from that, and the slightly... More

Very helpful people, who create a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. It’s not a luxury place. But very ok. Location is quite central, so it is easy to discover Accra. Food is nice. Lots of delicious local stuff. A good place to work. WIFI works most of the time (power failures in Accra are very frequent these days, but they have a... More

I'm not usually one to write reviews but staying here in the last week of a 3 month trip to Ghana was quite frankly the worst week of the whole experience. The service was DREADFUL. Staff were rude and unhelpful. Ignore everything the website says about breakfast, we had noodles that tasted like dirty dishwater (apparently. I am coeliac so... More

We appreciate your business and your feedback. Remembering this time we were completely booked along with other hotels in the area that we called to try to find you alternative accommodations so we converted one of our offices to a room for you, which is a room that is typically used as an office. We recognize your frustrations with the... More
