Francesco's was a magical place to stay. There is a pool with a beautiful view of Ios and the ocean, where everyone hangs out during the day, making it very easy to meet people. Every night, everyone meets at the bar from around 10 to 12 for drinks before heading out together for the night. I stayed there the second...

The people I met at this place were amazing, lots of people chilling by the pool, easy to make friends, a bar that gets everyone together at night, good rooms and good location for a fair price. The receptionists and owner were rude to me, accused me of working for a bar wnd trying to steal customers. One night we...

I recently stayed here with a friend of mine and had a mediocre experience at best. I will start with the positive aspects of Francesco's. Firstly, they offer a free transfer to and from the port, which is great. There is a bit of a hike up many stairs to get to the hostel, so keep that in mind if...

We stayed in a private room for 2. The room was very clean and the cleaning services were good. AC worked well. The location is great and has an amazing view of the sunset. It's located in the center of the town so you will have to take the bus to go to the beach but at night you are...

The location of this hostel makes everything. Set right in the main town of Ios's famous pub crawls, restaurants and stores- a seemingly quaint hostel which provides a pool area, bar and room cleaning services. The staff however were unfriendly and unhelpful when in need of help for booking a taxi to the airport... Wifi can only be accessed in...

After the hike up to Francesco's with our cases (which was unexpected!) we automatically felt like it was the right choice when we were greeted with a glass of water and the invitation to come down to the bar for a free welcome shot before heading out to the clubs. The layout of the hostel meant that our room was...

It's my second time staying here. Couldn't find a more central location and the staff couldn't have been better!! Amazing place to meet new people if travelling alone or with friends. Rooms are immaculate.

I'm not sure where to start with Francesco's - it was all so great! The hostel has great rooms and staff. Shout out to Eliana and Francesco himself for the great times. Good bar atmosphere and easy to meet people. Good pool as well with a nice view and lots of beds. The community feel of this place is like...

This hostel is by far one of the best I've ever stayed in. The service you receive is incredible. The staff are so lovely, remember exactly who you are and go out of their way to give you a 5 star hotel experience. The location couldn't be more perfect, right in the centre of Chora where all the action takes...

This place is amazing and the family are wonderfully kind and helpful...rooms are perfectly adequate and the views stunning! Bar area is great for meeting fellow travellers and very social, everybody gets together here at night and then those who want to go out on a bar/club crawl. Location is perfect for the town and bus stop to the beaches...
