    Great place to stay for any traveller. I enjoyed the breakfast that they made for us in the morning. Hot showers. The rooftop provides a great place for travellers to come together and socialize.

    Awesome property with a great staff. Richard, Patricia, and Miriam are all great and are very helpful with any questions. The location is right near "Circle" and a quick taxi to Accra Central, the main Tro Tro station in/out of Accra. Osu is a quick taxi ride away as well, which is a cool neighborhood to grab some eat and drink. The place is clean with hot water and AC. My favorite part of Sleepy Hippo is their little pool in the chill space, great for a dip to avoid the heat. Def recommended.

    This place is an absolute gem. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful with things to do and places to go out in Accra, as well as arranging travel for longer trips in Ghana. The Wifi is super fast, the rooms are comfortable, and the food tastes great. They have a rooftop lounge area with hammocks and even a small pool in the courtyard which are great places to meet people. Would stay there again no doubt.

    Flexible, friendly, helpful and caring staff in relation to arriving on a late evening flight after closing time, and at other times too. Plenty of travel and cultural information available if asked for. The breakfast was enough. A good and hassle free base with a relaxed atmosphere for exploring the city and beyond.

    The room was a decent size although there was a couple of stains on the bed sheets. only stayed 2 nights so didn't complain and the kitchen and bar staff were friendly and the food very tasty! The pictures on the website are perhaps a bit outdated, and the bathroom was advertised as en suite whereas it was actually a private bathroom down the corridor.
