    Super friendly staff

    The hostel name speaks for itself. It is a really nice place to stay in Ghana. I got to meet very nice people and got impressed how friendly and welcoming the hostel staff was. Definitely a good place to be when in Accra.

    The rooms were spartan but clean. The staff were helpful and friendly. The internet speed was reasonable. Breakfast was included and even though the menu was limited, it was wholesome and good.

    I liked the breakfast and they had a pool on site. I didn't like not having a microwave or working iron.

  • 6,0.Good

    We stayed here a few nights a year ago and it was pretty nice and quiet and the staff was great! We travel as a family with children who enjoy swimming and this time although it was weekday nights we stayed the place was loud especially at the bar area after 5pm. The bar is connected to the pool and so it was not an ideal place to be with the kids as the music had vulgar language along with the people at it. The breakfast was good as usual ! But the main thing that discouraged us from returning in the future was a metal wire Male they had hanging from the common sitting area ceiling which they had made a Males private parts sticking out from. This is a good price to stay and safe area if you are just wanting a cheap place to stay but know that it is not so much a family place to stay.

    Great value

    The hostel gives you great value for money in an expensive city like Accra. They have a nice little swimming pool to cool down on hot days, airconditioned rooms, modern design and welcoming staff. It's also easy to get to know other travellers when hanging out in the evening or over breakfast.

    Liked...the showers. Didn't like...hard to get to at night. Locals get confused when you ask where Somewhere Nice is. Is actual in New Town along Market Street and not Cotton Ave.

    High end hostel

    High end hostel vibe - mixture of private rooms and dorms, tastefully furnished in an industrial upcycled chic look (e.g. polished concrete, wicker hanging chairs). Spotlessly clean and delicious (and very friendly breakfast). Note it is a hostel, so the small pool will be crowded by beer swilling backpackers (which could be a plus or minus depending on your vibe).
