I recomend Vivian studios, it's confortable, clean, and you get great value for money.
They arrange for scooters and car rental at the hostel, so you dont have to go to city center to take care of that, very convenient.
Vivian and her mother we're absolutely welcoming, we felt at home :)

Vivian and her mother are warm hostesses and are available around the clock to assist in anyway they can. This hostel is about 25 minute bus ride from Old Rhodes and buried in a quiet part of town so don't go if looking for a party. Actual state of building is simple. Everything worked as it needed to. The highlight of my stay was Vivian and her mother's company and assistance in my traveling around Rhodes. I'm sure you will enjoy as well.

We initially booked with the intention of staying just two nights, but after a bit of exploring, we were hooked and wanted to continue our stay at Vivian Studios for an additional three nights. We were not looking for a 'tourist' resort, or big flashy hotel, rather a great home base with basic accommodations, to feel comfortable returning to after long days of wandering. We were so happy to get this and more!!!! It was so delightful, and Vivian was so helpful, just having her around to chat with about our adventures in Rhodos! I highly recommend renting a car, and seeing everything the island has to offer!

Room Tip: Because we chose to stay longer than initially booked, we had to switch rooms. Initially we were on...

Close to airport, close to Rhodes, which we used to visit every day, becouse in Iallyssos there's no beautiful beaches. Vivian and her mother are the most friendly and helpful people. We spent great time among typical Greek architecture. Rooms are lovely and very clean. Thank you :)

Clean and bright room with a friendly staff ready to help anywhere they can, I found it a great place to be. I stayed a week on a windsurfing holiday (rented a bicycle for a few euros a day to get around fast) and wished I could've stayed much much longer!

As we arrived at the airport a bright Vivan was picking us up and brought us to her little cute hostel. Normaly we wanted to stay just for one night, cause Rhodes should be our starting point for our island hoppintg tour. But as we arrived we decided to stay longer...
It was the best choice we could make getting away from the all-inclusive tourism on Rhodes. The hostel ist located in a quite residential area. A small supermarket, a bakery and some restaurants are just around the corner. For reaching the beach you have to walk for 10-15 minutes. For exploring the island we rent a scooter. Vivian and her mum helps you every time, no matter what.
Vivian Studios in 3 words: hospitable, heartly, cozy.
As we came back, after our island hopping tour, it was like coming home.
Thank you Vivian for such an amazing time.
