After what started out as a good first night at Francesco's my wife and I, who were traveling on our honeymoon, quickly figured out that the owner was a paranoid, controlling, alcoholic. After going out to a bar called Lost Boys on our first night I spent the following day wearing my singlet from the bar and answering some travelers... More

Stayed in a 3 bed private, scored a room with a massive balcony!! Awesome place to stay as it's right near the night life but quiet enough that if you want a night off (which in iOS you won't!) you can have a good sleep :) will most definitely go back.

Stayed here August 2014 for 4 nights with friends and 1 night on my own. We originally booked a 4 bed dorm room but were upgraded to a double dorm room on arrival. Saw the dorm rooms which are all small, single beds (no bunks), no air con, with fans. All dorm rooms use the communal bathroom. I'd recommend asking... More

Good location ( I'd recommend a bag you carry than a wheels bag because Greece is al steps ) the most helpful staff be met in a long time ! They were very pro mingling. Only downside was that wifi was limited to the bar and could be fairly dodgy. I'd definitely stay here again

Best location as in the middle of the village (where all the nightlife is), rooms are cleaned every day to an excellent standard. Staff are friendly and is if you have never been to Ios before they tell you where to go and show you around. The whole place has a great vibe, run by Francesco, Maria and Elizabeth who... More

The atmosphere and location of this place was great. It is right near all of the clubs and bars in Ios if you are looking for a partying experience. There is a little pool which is probably not the cleanest but good for a little cool off! If you are looking for a quiet hostel in Ios this is probably... More

Have stayed at Francesco's two years in a row and have loved it both times!! Francesco, his wife Maria and daughter Elizabeth are all LOVELY and welcoming people, and treated me like their own child. They made sure my stay was as comfortable as possible! All the staff are helpful and friendly. Rooms are very clean & safe to keep... More

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
