Francesco's hostel in Ios amazing! The staff were extremely helpful and nice and Francesco himself is the most welcoming host. I stayed in a twin private ensuite, which was very clean and spacious. The bar is the best place to meet people and have a few cheap drinks before heading out to the clubs which are just around the corner! There is a free shuttle that takes you too and from the port which makes getting there so much easier and its only a quick bus ride away from the beach. One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at and I'll defiantly be going back soon!

One of the best hostels I've stayed at! Spent most of the time just chillin' at the pool and meeting new people then heading out and partying at night! Francesco is an awesome owner as well and the staff are all friendly! Especially the well beautiful one who works behind the counter sometimes. I would def. stay here over anywhere else in Ios

Family owned an run hotel. You get a real family feel. It can get noisy as it is known as a party island. Luckily Francescos is out the party area. Make sure you pay extra it's well worth it and get the room with the AC! Great stay, took me back to my youth if only for a few days

A friend and I from australia both 21, stayed here for three nights. The family was so lovely and went out of their way to help us out and even give us lifts if they were heading to the same places! Made us feel so welcome and they felt like our family but only in Greece! Great atmosphere and rooms were nice, our particular room had our own private balcony with a breath taking view of the town and ocean, could see santotini in the distance! Highly recommend.

Room Tip: We stayed in room number 12

Great hostel with good location if you wish to be more in the town as opposed to the beach. Highlight was the owners which create such a family vibe. We hired a scooter for the day and didn't return till night and Maria had called up half the island worried about us haha. Only stayed for 2 nights and got the local hug on departure. Much more than merely a place to sleep. Also always a pleasant surprise being picked up by a fellow NZer in a small island that far from home.

Cheap rooms overlooking the most beautiful view in Ios, with staff who treat you like family and an abundance of food, drink, beaches and nightlife directly behind you - what more could you ask for?! My best friend and I stayed in Ios for a bit of a party, which Ios and Francesco's supplied ten fold, but this hostel also accommodates couples or those here for some R&R. 15-20 minute walk to the beach, 2-5 minute walk to restaurants and nightclubs; very central location but still far out enough to not be awoken by hooligans. One of our favourite places in the world - a huge thankyou to the staff for looking after us two Aussie girls!
