As most of the other excellent reviews on here, this place is the place to stay in IOS if you're looking for budget accomodation.. Like most others here I can't show how much appreciation we have for Georgey boy and his family! I was due to stay at far out camping in a tent with no electricity, fan or wifi... More

You must stay at purple pig stars for your time in Ios. Why? In short, it has the best location, it's family run, has the friendliest staff and is the best value. Purple pig is only a 7minute flat walk to the party place 'far out camping', and 12mins walk to town. The beach is a 1min walk with water... More

We had an awesome stay at Purple Pig Stars & Camping! It is very good value for money and my only complaint would be the wifi was un reliable but it wouldn't be a deal breaker! The bathrooms could also been cleaned a little better. We stayed in the basic 4 bed bungalow room which had a private balcony, ensuite... More

This hostel is great value for what it is worth. George and his family are hilarious and make the stay a great one. The position of the hostel is great - close to the beach, bus stops and town. The rooms are simple and quite clean. Definitely recommend staying here for a relaxed holiday

We had a wonderful stay at the Purple Pig. George and his family were so wonderful and made us feel right at home. Our shower was quite cold but I really couldn't care less. We're on Ios! If we had approached George I'm sure he would have helped. He supplied a mosquito zapper and was very approachable and friendly. Full... More

The manager of the hostel, George, and his family were absolutely amazing. They went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable. So much appreciation, thank you. The location is perfect, the pool is great and the rooms are comfortable too.

The owner and his family just adopted me as if I was their family! I only stayed 4 days, but upon my departure they even gave me gifts, and it seemed like the parents of George - already in a very respectable age - were saying goodbye to their granddaughter! The accommodation offers an amazing value for the price, has... More

Words cannot describe how great this place is! I really don't know where to start.. George is an absolute star, I've never met someone that makes every single person feel so welcome. Above and beyond is an understatement, he just does anything to help and is always there when you need him! I had a bad personal experience with a... More

Basic accom (in private bungalow rooms not camping) rooms were clean, not very noisy, great aircon, bad sewerage problems whilst we were there but that can't be helped in a place like IOS, seconds away from the beach and a 10 min walk to far out, no wifi in our room and was sketchy in reception/pool area at times

Where do I start, well George runs the joint and in all my travels I have never met anyone so fun and accommodating. He goes above and beyond to ensure your stay is the best. Besides that the hostel pool area is awesome and rooms are built in a way that all balconies connect creating a very social environment! The... More
