Stayed here for two nights before flying out of Accra. It has a nice homely feel, working wifi and friendly staff. The showers have hot water which was a bonus, and breakfast was varied and tasty. Thank you :)

Nice stay in safe and quiet area of the city (the president lives in the same area) I will certainly be staying again next time I travel to ghana... the last time I was in Ghana was with the old currency before they found the oil... this place has stayed true to the chafe and is very honest :)

Lovely Hostel with nice colors in rooms and Lobby. Staff is very friendly and helpful. WLAN works very well. We stayed 2 nights and later 1 night in double rooms with community bathroom, everything was ok, enjoyed our stay very much. Breakfast is excellent, also dinner can be ordered and is highly recommended.

A Dutch friend and I stayed in the female dorm and it was quiet and cozy. The beds were super clean and comfortable. The hostel is really cutely decorated with African art all along the walls. Internet also works like a dream everywhere! Staff is helpful and ready to answer any questions or just hang out!

The discomfort seem to overshadow the comfort. The only thing I like was the cleanliness of the room. The wifi was ok, the breakfast was ok although I had to stop having the breakfast at a point. The Cook and one of the cleaner was arrogant on several occasions and most Importantly I hate to see that horrible and spiritual...

Thank you for your interesting review of your stay at Agoo Hostel. It seems that your sensitivities were offended by our African themed décor, by which I presume you mean the African masks and statuary in the hostel. Rest assured we are not herbalists, nor are we by inference occultists! You seem to presume that a hostel should be a...

I stayed for a few nights in my own a/c room. Although the bathroom is shared, it's only shared between a few rooms & therefore not a problem: the dorm is in the main building. The hostel is clean, safe and a haven from the heat & humidity of Accra. The owner is obviously a world traveller herself and set...

Wonderful place to stay in Accra! I stayed in a shared room with AC for one night, before departing for the airport next morning. The staff was very accommodating and welcoming, as was the owner. It is very reasonably priced and not too far from the airport.
