Pink Hostel was great - airport run was as advertised, food was good (breakfast adequate), rooms were clean and well maintained. Internet worked, which was a blessing. My group was well taken care of, even though we had to change rooms from one night to the next (due to our group size changing).

I stayed in a dorm room - it was clean, the shower was great and the breakfast was great, very substantial. The staff were friendly and helpful. I was travelling from Burkina, and the hostel was close to the bus station.

Hello, thank you for staying with us while making your long trip from Burkina Faso. We always love seeing volunteers and Peace Corps Volunteers. Look us up again on your way back through Accra or if you have other friends checking Ghana out. It was fun watching the Ghana vs US football match with you. Hope to see you again. More

As a student, I've done my fair share of traveling around the northern and eastern regions of Ghana. The Pink Hostel is definitely top 3 on my list of hostel accommodations.

Thank you for your wonderful review. The comparison to other hotels in the region is very key here and we appreciate it.

Restaurant and bars are fine and you will be friendly treated by the servants. Cleanless is average. Hotel rooms are aging. The big minor thing is, the reception is not working properly. I have booked my room with 40% discount. Today when I checked out, I as guest had to prove that I booked with that discount. Be warned! Sometimes... More

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.

Thank you for review and your stay. We fully understand about the internet as we have finally tracked down the problem to a router that controlled all of the other wireless connections. We have replaced this router and now have good wireless throughout all the floors. More

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

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.

We are ideally located in a relaxing and peaceful area, away from the continuous activity and hubbub of the capital, but central enough that we are within walking distance of many attractions in Accra and only a short drive from the vibrant, buzzing centre with all its sights and amenities. Guests at Pink Hostel can safely walk around the neighbourhood, and may visit attractions such as the National Museum, Kwame Nkrumah Circle and Adabraka Market on foot. From immediately outside the hostel it easy to pick up a taxi, from where it is only a short drive to sights such as Independence Square and the Makola Market and amenities in the lively Oxford Street in Osu. Pink Hostel is a mere 15 minute drive from Kotoka International airport and is within easy reach of bus stations and transport hubs for travel around the country. ... more   less
