Q:  Is Pink Hostel like one of those typical crazy, dirty European hostels?

A:  No Pink Hostel is very different.  First of all we have private single and double rooms along with our dormitory bunks.  Our dormitory rooms at a maximum have only 8 guests each.  Pink is also located in central Accra but is tucked into a quite residential neighborhood so it is not a load chaotic place.  While we do have a number of independent back packers come through the majority of our guest are volunteer groups, business travelers, and your what you might call your typical traveler.  While Pink Hostel might not be what you would consider one of those wild hostels in Europe we do know how to have fun, we have a number of events and activities including a pub crawl, we also have two nice restaurants on the property both of them serving alcoholic beverages and one of them with a bar.  Check out Item 13 Restaurant and Baobab Cafe and Bar.
