SO I booked this hostel online because my couch surfer had somewhere to go and I couldn't stay longer than a couple of days. I love the ambiance here at night, very serene. The beds were comfortable and clean. The bathroom was basic and the shower had almost no water pressure and the hot water lasted all of 20 seconds.... More

I really wish I could rave about our overnight stay at Pink Hostel but it pales compared to Access Inn in Osu were we stayed for two nights.

A friendly, safe and secure hotel with a good, central location in Accra. Clean AC rooms; welcoming staff; fresh, varied breakfast- a good base that covers your needs. We stayed here 10 years ago and were happy to see that it's still an ideal place to stay for a first time visitor to Accra.

Pink Hostel is clean and everyone was very kind and helpful to me. You have options to sleep in dorms or privates that come with ensuite bathrooms and breakfast is included. You can find better prices elsewhere but in terms of security, it felt very safe.
