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.

“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.”
