Nicole.webster2 Pink Hostel is a great place to meet positive people staying in Ghana for a variety of different reasons although many are part of volunteer programs. The outside bar and restaurant facilities offer many opportunities to talk with others and local staff, as does the free breakfast (which is pretty good!). Without a doubt Pink Hostel is one of the cleanest places I've stayed in Ghana and the quality of the rooms is very good. Unfortunately the electrical circuits were not grounded in one of the rooms I stayed in - literally a shocking experience and I felt a detail that should have been taken more seriously considering the amount of money that Pink Hostel charge for a room. In addition, although the rooms are sprayed for mosquitoes and screens were placed over the bathroom windows as an added precaution, there was a huge gap between the wall and the screen which would allow mosquitoes through should the chemical solution fail - again a detail that should have been attended to. The staff are mostly really great with one or two stand-out stars in customer service who manage to achieve the perfect balance between being professional yet friendly (Godfred, it's you!). Disappointing to be harassed by a junior member of staff to put money in the tip box as I left. The guy was really persistent and I felt that the aggressive under-tone was more suited to a street vendor than someone working in a paid position at an international hostel. Overall, Pink Hostel is a good place to stay in Accra and I think that mostly the management and staff are really trying to 'do things better' and provide a great place for international travellers to stay. It is certainly worth considering if you are looking for a place to stay in Accra.

chriscochr i had a great time there and hope to get back there in the next 3 weeks all going well. Thanks Uncle and Aunty i loved it
sfwclarke I stayed in Legassi Gardens for two months and it was fantastic. The place is owned by Nana Kwame Gayle, who is a very personable gentlemen. He would come by to check on me if he hadn't seen me in a few days. When I became ill, he came by with tea and remedies that absolutely made me feel 100% better. Madame Gayle was also very friendly, her willingness to engage made me feel very welcome. The staff at the Gardens are incredible. I spent more time with Agyiengo, the guide, then with anybody else during my first three weeks. He was very patient with me and had wonderful suggestions about places to go. I would not have been able to learn how to navigate the public transport without Agyiengo. He even accompanied me to a reggae concert on the beach. Agyiengo was a great friend and an incredible resource, I will miss him very much. The cooks, Lawson and Moses, are very reliable and open to modifications to the meals. Jozef is very thorough and punctual about cleaning the room and doing laundry. The place is safe, I left my computer out in the living room all day, often without even locking my door. The bed is very comfortable and the staff changes the sheets often. My accommodations had a large living room, with two bed rooms and a spacious bathroom, all of which were cleaned twice weekly. The grounds are beautiful. Coming back from the city to the serenity of the hotel was always a relief. I wholeheartedly recommend Legassi Gardens for anybody looking for a quiet place to stay just outside of Accra for any period of time.
grcorti For the price range the rooms are good and the area very peaceful. There was no internet service available which was one of my main reasons for choosing it (was there for work!), but this wasn't their fault and they were chasing up their provider everyday, so it's likely to only be a temporary situation. The hosts were all very friendly, very welcoming and very helpful. However the location is well away from the town centre or areas of interest; taxis are pentiful and cheap so this is not a problem but there is very little of interest, restaurants or shops locally.
