I stayed at Princess Sissy for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. There was someone ready and waiting for me at the port and was promptly checked-in by the owner Nikos - a very friendly and hospitable man who showed me to my room and told me about the area.
The hotel is roughly a 3 or 4 minute walk to the port/beach and around 5 or 6 minute walk from the main town where all the bars, clubs and restaurants are. I found the location pretty good but it would have been perfect if it was just a tad closer to the centre as it was incredibly annoying walking down heaps of stairs at 4 or 5am. But on the other hand, this was handy as it meant a quiet night's sleep.
I paid 11 Euros per night for a dorm room but instead was given a twin en-suite room. I'm not entirely sure why but I think it was because a bigger group was taking up the dorms...who knows? Anyway, the room was very clean, had A/C, TV and came complete with linen, towels, soap, etc. Unfortunately the wifi connection did not reach the room and the toilet would run with water for hours after flushing it (which was a bit annoying at night).
Internet and computers were available at reception, breakfast for 5 Euros and there were also safety deposit lockers free for use. However there were a few annoyances in that the lockers were quite small and wouldn't fit my lap top, only Nikos held the key to open them and reception was closed between 3.30-6pm so tough luck if you need to access your locker then.
Overall I really enjoyed my stay at Princess Sissy and although I cannot comment on the dorms, 11 Euros a night for the room I received was a real bargain. I would definitely recommend the Princess to families, friends and solo travelers to Ios. Party on and good luck! Thanks.
