This is the second time I have stayed at francescos and again it delivered. Such a fantastic location right in the middle near restaurants and stumbling distance from bars. Pre drinks are always good fun and the staff are lovely. Our ferry was delayed by 3 hours yet they were still there to give us our transfer from the ferry.... More

Located on the top of the hill the views are amazing! This is by far the best place to be in Ios. Francesco and all of the staff are so welcoming and everyone is invited for welcome shots before the night out. Such a nice and fun atmosphere, 5 min walk into town, and a 5 min walk to the... More

Having never stayed at a hostel before, I did not really know what to expect with Francesco's. However, I had a very pleasant and enjoyable stay at Francesco's. To me, it was more like a high-end hostel. Our private room and bathroom were cleaned daily; our towels and bedsheets changed. The room smelt like fresh paint and was nicely appointed.... More

I visited Ios in September, so it was perfect to be close to town rather than at Beach Club. Room was great - basic, but that as all you need to nurse a hangover during the day & party at night. It was so nice to have a pool as well. It overlooks the town. Staff were very friendly &... More

Awesome place to stay when in IOS. With a pool, bar, food, rooms, and amazing staff to help out, this place is prime real estate. 30 seconds to everything and a constant flux of new people meant you barely had to move to have a great time. Number one in town for a reason.

Do not have a bad word to say about Francesco's, there was a free transfer waiting for us at the ferry. We got there and all the staff were so so so nice and chill, really great atmosphere there. The rooms were clean and spacious, they had a/c, a t.v., a hairdryer, all the essentials. Everything was clean and a... More

The staff at Francesco's made this stay wonderful right from the start. Transfers from the port to the hostel and assistance for the long walk up the stairs with our bags were an added bonus. The location is great- close to all of the bars, clubs, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bus stop. The hostel pool and bar had a very... More

Our stay at Francesco's was all we wished for. The staff is incredible : Alex picks you up at the port and looks after you your whole stay. Drew makes sure everybody is having fun and sweet Jake makes the best drinks. Staying at Francesco's means making friends, party all night and feel like home. Everything is perfect : room... More

This place doesn't have words to describe to how awesome the entire establishment is. There are no faults to this hostel. The staff, cleanliness, friendliness and great atmosphere will leave you having the greatest times of your life. Walking distance to everything and easy to get the bus to the beach. But when the sun goes down this place turns... More

Located on the top of a hill with an incredible view this hostel is the mosy centralised you can get! Not only can you walk to restaurants and clubs within minutes, but you are also made to feel so welcomed by the staff. They were so friendly and full of fun, always making sure we were having a good time... More
