This hostel is by far one of the best I've ever stayed in. The service you receive is incredible. The staff are so lovely, remember exactly who you are and go out of their way to give you a 5 star hotel experience. The location couldn't be more perfect, right in the centre of Chora where all the action takes... More

This place is amazing and the family are wonderfully kind and helpful...rooms are perfectly adequate and the views stunning! Bar area is great for meeting fellow travellers and very social, everybody gets together here at night and then those who want to go out on a bar/club crawl. Location is perfect for the town and bus stop to the beaches... More

Great hostel to stay in for socialising. The hostel is located in the main town with probably some of the best views of the sunset in Ios. The pool also has a great view of the sunset and ocean, everyone hangs around the pool area during the day then meets at the hostel bar later at night for a free... More

Best to go if you're looking to go out every night. They run a nightly pub crawl ending at the strip of clubs you spend the rest of the night. The staff were amazingly helpful in booking restaurants and supplying transport to and from ferries. To get the most out of it you need to put yourself out there, but... More

As soon as it was mentioned to staff the... More

A group of friends and me arrived at ios and looked for a place of francescos to sleep in given its reputation. But the houses they showed us were absolutely terrible with no windows and no furniture. The man who showed us the house could barely speek english and was very very unpolite. we took a while to decide if... More

Francesco's is in perfect location, as you can walk home on nights out from the bars/clubs. It is also near plenty of ATMs and supermarket just down outside the lil village. Accomodation wise we were so happily shocked with how nice our rooms were, we were in a private two people bed room, air con worked well, showers were "hand... More

When we first arrived at Francescos a huge standout was its centrality in the town of IOS. Food, Bars and clubs were all in a 100m radius which was extremely convenient. A large disappointment for me was the terribly rude staff and the standards of the rooms. If your room was too messy you were sure to hear it from... More
