The main area is the Chora (village) or Mylopotos if you're a beach lover.

All the nightlife action is in the Chora so probably best to stay there. Francescos is the main hostel if you are on a budget if not consider somewhere like the Ios Resort Hotel etc

Ios is not a big island. Just leave the ferry and ask the room-renters that will meet you in the port. No big deal.

There is only one real town on Ios and that is Chora. The bus that is in the port will bring you there for about €1.60. I recommend not booking anything in advance or you will get ripped off online. When you get off the ferry there will be a big grop of people in front of you trying to get you to stay with them. You have to haggle. Depending on the time of year you are going the price per person will range from about €9-€25. July and August are the most expensive times.

Tell them what you are looking for ie AC, a pool etc. It will be cheaper if the 4 of you stay in one room. Almost all of the people selling rooms at the port have their own transport and will bring you to your accommodation free of charge. They will also bring you back for your ferry.

Don't stay in the port area. Nothing happens there and the beach isnt great.

I recommend you stay in Hermes hotel. Find Nick when you get off the ferry. You cant miss him he is a BIG guy and he will be holding a Hermes sign. He will sort you out. Best pool and view on the island. Halfway between the town and the beach. He is also owns some of the pubs/clubs on the island and will sort you out with pubcrawls/shots/entry.

Enjoy yourselves Ios is insane!
