Property Description

You are welcomed to the home of the Quaynors.
Ours is indeed your home away from your home.

Crystal Hostel is a new phenomenon in the hospitality industry in Ghana and in Africa. We represent the proverbial Ghanaian hospitality in its real form.
We stay and live with you as a member of our family and give you the opportunity to experience the proverbial Ghanaian hospitality.

Our objective is to provide visitors to Accra a safe, secured and comfortable home at affordable rates. Staying with us will be an experience you will never forget and you will always cherish.

All our rooms are en-suite and comfortable. Every room has:
Colour TV
Fridge and
Wardrobe
Private bathroom and toilet

Some of our rooms are air-conditioned. Rooms with air condition attract extra charge of $5.00 per day.

For your complete relaxation, we have
A big compound with trees
Well-kept green lawns
Two rooftop balconies
There are comfortable garden chairs on the lawns and on the rooftop for your relaxation in the cool tropical breeze.

Group Bookings-Family, Students, Associations, etc.
The big compound and the two-rooftop balconies give a total floor space not available at any such facility in Accra and in Ghana.

Children have a lot of space to play and run around.
Adults who want to relax outside their rooms have a lot of space to relax to enjoy the tropical breeze.

Our double rooms are very large and we have the capacity to convert them into dormitories to accommodate up to six people comfortably. Group numbers in multiples of five and staying for 5 days can negotiate for attractive discounts on the dormitory rates.

Discounts for Long Stay:
Guests staying for more than 21 days can negotiate for generous discounts. The total number of days you stay must be 21 days or more to enjoy this concession.

Voluntary Work Placements:
We arrange short and long-term placements for anybody of any age who would like to volunteer in Ghana. We can arrange placement for people who want to:
*work with children in orphanages and day care centers,
*teach in first cycle schools,
*have medical experience in nursing.

The Historical Tours
The house now offers tours to historical sites in Ghana including Cape Coast and Elmina Castles. In addition, lectures on Euro-African relations based on original research, are given. For instant, it was the Danes, not the English, who brought Central Government to Ghana and the Osu Township and Christiansburg Castle played a great role.

Tour Guides:
We have professional tour guides who know the Ghanaian terrain so well and make your tour most educative and comfortable.

Broadband internet service is available.

Kitchens
There are fully equipped kitchens in the house for guests who would like to prepare their own meals. Cooking utensils and gas are supplied free.

There is an active night market on the main road where you can get practically anything you want at anytime of the day and night. There are wayside food vendors, restaurants, groceries, even boutiques in the night market.

Art and Craft Market
There is an Art and Craft market in the house where you buy any local art and craft work.

Custom made clothes:
There are seamstresses and tailors near the house who can sew any Ghanaian / African designs for guests at short notice.

Airport Pickup:
We shall pick you up from the airport if we know of your flight arrangements, particularly the name of the airline you will be flying into Accra.

Conclusion
Obviously, you can never get all these facilities, at the rates stated, under one roof at the same time anywhere, not even in the star-rated hotels.
We give you every opportunity to have a feel of a real Ghanaian life situation including the social and cultural life of the Ghanaian. View House Rules

    Superb

    16 Feb 2017
    This is a great launch pad for your stay in Accra to immerse yourself in everyday life. Situated in a neighborhood of locals with plenty to eat and shop like a local nearby. For West Africa / Ghana standards this is a simple, standard living situation at a reasonable price. The main house is separate and "dorms" are circled around a courtyard - a nice place to gather and meet other long and short-term travelers. Auntie is friendly and helpful and can recommend a fantastic seamstress!

    I stayed at Crystal Hostel for two weeks in July 2017. The staff are amazing. Anything you need all you have to do is ask. Auntie and her family made the place feel like home. It is set in Darkuman about 10-15 minute ride away from the city centre. The area is incredibly safe, and the local shop keeps are extremely friendly. The rooms are large, and very clean. Overall, it was a great place to stay and I recommend it for anyone staying in Accra on a budget.

    Crystal Hostel was such a nice break from the craziness of Accra! It's a little far away from the city center, but everyone tried so hard to make me feel at home and welcome.

    Warm welcome from Seth who offered us a taxi from the airport before we arrived. Room was spacious clean and fresh, with a lovely courtyard. Seth's wife made us a great breakfast in the morning!!

    The place is a great value for basic stay. The hosts are very nice. I did not have wifi access but apparently it is available in and close to the host house. The refrigerator was a plus and ceiling fan worked well. Luckily it rained a bit because there was no generator kicking in for "lights out". I'd actually gladly stay here again for the value if I have time and transportation. The location is not close for a lot of running into town.

    Good

    Hostel is good for it's money. Sheets aren't washed, but you get lots of space to yourself in the room because there are hardly any visitors. It's a bit far from the center, but you can easily master how to use the tro tro to get to the center, just by asking questions (ex: 1.80 cedi tro tro to Circle (pronounced Seh-kul). Then 3 cedi shared taxi to Osu-reh). I hated that there were so many spiders in the bathroom.

    The hostel is out of town and to get to the city center it took me up to an hour by trotro (C2). Stuff were friendly but most of the time not around. But if I could find someone, they answered all my questions. Often the wifi didn't work and once the electricity shut down. For that price (C40 per night), I wouldn't come back.
