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.

Time and time again I've given pink hostel a couple of chances. Mainly because I became great friends with one of the workers (Augie) . My first visit there last year in July was decent. But the staff at the time was also a lot better. My second visit in October was ok but I was greeted by staff asking...

We stayed in this hostel for about 3weeks. Normal price per night is 50.49euros (220ghanaian cedis) for a private room for two people.They are charging more than the room deserves.

This Hostel has a lot of sleeping options (private and group rooms), gate that locks, a great complementary breakfast every morning, and indoor and outdoor seating.

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...

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...

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.

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.

“Do not accept a room on the ground floor next to reception , it is in very bad shape and noisy and you dont get hot water.”

“Stay elsewhere.”

“I stayed in 3 different rooms while I was there. The 2nd floor didn't get water when the power was off so no chance to cool down. The 1st floor above reception had a good Wi-Fi signal. I had a single room for 2 nights but it was a bit too small for me. I moved the next night to a double.”
