I stayed in 3 different places while on Ios and Franceso's was my favorite! All of the workers and the people staying at the hostel were very friendly. I met a lot of people, which was great because I was traveling solo. It's also in a great location - very close to all of the restaurants/bars and the bus stop!... More

after a rough boat ride to Ios... we demanded our tour leader sort us some accommodation... Enter Francesco... this man welcomed us with open arms, drove us in his bus to the resort... an amazing place with unrivaled views... If we were ever lost on the island everyone knows where's 'Frankie's Place' is... will definitely back.. Thanks Frankie! x

The rooms are clean and comfortable.The deck and pool area is great, and so is the main front bit - the view is amazing! It's within walking... More

We just stayed at Francesco's for 3 nights. It is excellent value and has an incredible view. Still a hostel so mostly young people, although appears to attract an older crowd who have been going back for years as well! With nightly welcome shots it's a great opportunity to meet new people in a warm environment. However they are still... More

My cousin and I stayed at this hostel for three nights and enjoyed our stay. The staff working are incredibly friendly. They will answer all your questions and give you great suggestions for food and activities. They even have free shuttles to and from the port! We had a private room which was enough space for us two, and it... More

I only stayed for one night but since my arrival I felt like I was being with my family. The staff did their best to make me feel comfortable and the room had the most amazing view of the island! Best value for money!

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
