Francesco's
Ranked #12 of 42 Hotels in Ios
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 September 2013

Great place, close to the nightlife. Tough choice between here and Farout, but here's good if you want to party and stumble home. Not really possible when staying at Farout. Get to Farout for daytime hang outs and an arvo cocktail then get on your quad (if it isnt stolen, it happens) and pop back up to Francesco's. Drinks are strong in Ios. Tread carefully and try to avoid demolishing yourself. Good spot, clean rooms and a gorge view. Francesco was great, free shots here and there, a great time (from what I remember)

The location was right in the middle of the town. Staff were so helpful and friendly. An awesome party atmosphere. Free shots every night at 1030.Rooms were really big and clean. They did a free transfer from the port too.

The staff Julie & Alex were amazing. We were offered a free transfer from the port to our hotel. At 10:30 pm every night the hostal provided free shots. It was a very friendly atmosphere, everyone hung out together. The breakfast & food were nice, something like 6 or 8 euros which is reasonable. The rooms were fine, the shower and bathroom was slightly small but overall it was one of the nicest hostals we've had or been to in a while. It is a bus ride away from Far Out which is an amazing beach / pool party area. The bars are all close by and you literally drink from 10 pm to about 3 am and go to bed by 6 am. Lots of fun, would definitely reccomend it!!

Francescos was great to stay because location was right in ios were all the bars are but not that close so you can still get a good night sleep. It's only a 5 minute bus ride from Farout beach, every night people meet in the bar were they give everyone a free shot for all the new comers and then take you to a cheap bar then go out and enjoy your night.

We stayed in a 3 bed private room with a bathroom for four nights. Unfortunately, the room smelt terribly of sewage which was intermittent for the whole time. We requested that the smell be attended to however unfortunately nothing was done about it.
Staff were friendly and accommodation was in a great location.

The hostel was located in a really good spot within 5 minutes walk to all the bars. room was really clean and we had a verandah on the top floor. the staff were really helpful and it is a big party hostel.

Room Tip: ask for a room up by the pool as they have verandahs

This was definitely one of the best hostels I stayed at in Greece. The staff was excellent- exceedingly helpful and friendly and offered a free port pick up and drop off too. The location/view is hard to beat! Loved the pool area and deck overlooking Ios and the Aegean Sea. No kitchen unfortunately and rooms are basic, but clean and there is a great common area deck to meet other travelers. It is definitely a party hostel, but then again Ios is a party island so I wouldn't reccomend staying at Frencesco's/coming to Ios at all if that isn't your thing.
