This hostel is a great place to stay on the cheap. The owners are always willing to offer places to go, see or things to do (real things too, not tacky tourist stuff). The staff are friendly and have plenty of tips for those new to the island. The family also owns luxury beach villas and a mountain-side escape set on the side of their own 300+ year old olive and wine garden if a hostel is not for you. You have full access to any and all of the families facilities.
The walk from the docks is a little daunting for those who have over-packed but a seasoned hosteling traveller will have no problems with the centuries-old cobbled streets that lead right past the centre of Forio, past the many amazing cafe's and shops and a few blocks above the main markets. The family also owns an amazing restaurant that they will shuttle you to nightly for the most amazing home-cooked food you will likely encounter in your travels.
