Having been to Accra many times it's just now that I felt at home. Travelling with a group of seven and facing multiple challenges before getting there, Helen and her team were very flexible and of great help! We spent four nights in comfortable and clean rooms and enjoyed a delicious breakfast every morning. From Agoo Hostel, all relevant places...

We spent four nights at this Hostel with a group of seven people. Eventhough our flight was delayed and we arrived one day later than expected, the people from Agoo Hostel were really nice and flexible. The breakfast was very delicious and the rooms were clean. There is always a cool drink in the fridge and everyone who works at...

We spent four nights in a 6 bed room at Agoo Hostel. It was the perfect retreat for our busy days in Accra. The accommodations are nice and clean and the heartful staff is more than helpful. I can highly recommend agoo hostel!

A very nice and affordable place. Also, very friendly staff and a great place to meet new people and make new friends. My stay was short but I enjoyed every bit of it. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable place to stay in Acrra

I have not had much 'staying in the hostel' experience but ended up staying at this hostel in Accra this trip and found the hostel, staff and facilities par excellence. The hostel is impeccably clean, has everything you need within its premises and also is right next to the current Ghana president's personal home. All tourist spots in Accra are...

I stayed at Agoo for 4 night when I first arrived in Accra. I would stay here again anytime! The staff is great and Helen who runs the palce is super helpful. Having the staff cook for you can especially be recommended.

Agoo hostel is in a good location located about 10 min drive from the airport. The hostel is run very well by Helen and instantly had a nice vibe about it.

Hi Francis, Thanks for taking the time to share your experience of Agoo Hostel with other travellers. Sorry for my delayed response. We enjoyed having you and Roy to stay, and it is good to have visitors with Ghana family connections to stay. It really adds to our mix of interesting guests. All the best, Helen

I stayed here with my 2 children (12 and 15) for a few nights and the slogan of the hotel "Home way from home" is true. The professional, helpful and friendly staff make you feel very much at home. They can also provide many practical tips. The hostel has a garden and terrace, a spacious living + diningroom, chilled softdrinks,...
