Location was perfect! If you are a first time traveller to iOS, staying in town is definitely the better option and Francesco's is a two minute walk to all the night life. It has a very good hostel vibe, offering dorms and private rooms. The communal area is heaps of fun and a place where you can meet heaps of... More

Francescos was a great find for us, it's right near the centre of town where the party is but far enough away that you can sleep at night (although on one night some people decided to have a pre drinks room party that was loud but once they went it was fine). The pool is nice to have, the rooms... More

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!... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
