Loved Francesco and his hostel! Great room, very large with a huuuuge balcony overlooking Ios - we had a fantastic view and enough room to have a party on our balcony. Very clean and the bathroom was the most decent we had while in Greece. Good location too, close to the bars and the shops/restaurants.
The staff who picked us up at the ferry and took us to the hotel weren't the most friendly. They pretty much left us to find our own way because we were taking so long dragging our bags through Ios! The girl at the front desk also wasn't the nicest. But Francesco himself was a gem, he dragged my bag up to my room and I thought he might have a heart attack from the effort!
We had stayed at Stelio's Place in Santorini and it turned out Stelio and Francesco were related through marriage - both great hostels and great hosts! Also, if you stay here make sure you visit the cafe around the corner (I think it's the Moon Cafe or something like that) - they do the best all-day breakfast I've ever had.
