Myself and 3 friends had the pleasure of staying at Francesco's in september. We had a 4 bed private room. The service was great, the staff were fun and we loved staying here! Free welcome shots each night, pool with a view and best location to bar hop! Definitely recommend this place!

Visited with my boyfriend at the end of September. We were picked up from the port by the really helpful driver and barman at the hotel who also advised us on where to visit whilst on the island. The rooms were clean and tidy with free air conditioning and wifi, comfy beds. Really great location and the town was still... More

Everything was perfect. The staff was great. The rooms were clean. The hill is enough of a climb to give you a good work out. Beautiful terrace and pool overlooking the sea. The woman who runs the place was so friendly - she's welcome to come visit me any time!

We stayed at Francesco's for 3 nights. The hotel is located a mere 5 minutes walking distance from the main shopping and bar district, and another 5 minute walk from the main bus station to the beaches. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful, and it was very important to them to make all the guests as "together" as possible.... More

By far the best place to stay in Ios. The staff was so welcoming and accommodating during our 4 day stay. The location can't be beat, just steps away from nightlife and offers amazing views. We left the island and decided to return a few days later and when we did Francesco's is the first place we went. They were... More

Despite a last minute booking, we got a great room at a great price at Francesco's. Amazing value for money and every single staff member was so friendly and welcoming. Great vibe, amazing views, cheap cocktails, and really convenient location in central Chora... Yet still managed to be quiet in our room. I honestly couldn't recommend it enough.

Stayed for 6 days on a girls holiday, all the staff were so friendly and welcoming. We stayed in two of the private rooms which were clean and comfortable. The whole hostel has a great community atmosphere and we met lots of people who were travelling. The nightly welcome shots and walk to the bars (3mins away) help to get... More

You have to stay here. The vibe, the rooms, the air con, the friends. We booked a twin room and got the best room on top of the hostel overlooking the inner port. A huge balcony and great room next to two lovely ladies, many an exclamation were shared about our fortune. Perfectly located for sojourns into town and also... More

We enjoyed a three bed dorm to ourselves and it felt like luxury yet we paid so little. The location is great for clubs, and it's very social as you head out as one big group. Also close to the supermarket and bus that is a quick ride to the most stunning beach. Most of all, the staff were so... More
