Awesome place to stay if you want to party!


If you want to party, that's the place to go.


Definitely stay in the private rooms and not the camping area. It's good they have two pools, one for partying and one for relaxing - both really good pools though. Food is decent and great locations next to the beach! Its a party there every night! Would say again.


Our stay was pretty good. The site is right next to the beach, but we stayed near the top of the hill and it was really difficult to get up to our room. It was especially difficult when we first arrived and had to hike up the hill with our backpacks on over and over because we were confused by the number system. Overall this place is loud and the food is incredibly over priced, but definitely a party destination if that is what your looking for.

Way too overpriced, can easily get similar accommodation near by and for half the price.


Fun party hostel, cheap drinks and easy to have fun. If you're staying in a bungalow in summer though they get pretty hot.


The location is pretty good (close to the beach, music around the swimming pool in the afternoon, buses to go to the town center, etc.) Staff isn't very friendly though, they seem to be more interested into running their business than help you or plan good activities. Also, you have to pay for every extra : air conditioning (5€/day), internet on a computer (1€/15min), etc.


Good spot right near the popular beach. Private rooms/ bungalows need fly screens to stop the insect attacks because the windows need to be open due to how hot the rooms get. Ridiculous that air conditioner costs extra on top of the expensive room prices already. Don't think the bathrooms were cleaned the whole time we were there either.


If you want to party this is the place to be. Not the best place for a "night off" though! They deliver what they promise. For the small increase in price it's worthwhile getting a cabin/bungalow rather than a pre erected tent. So much more room and the option to pay an extra €5 per day for aircon


Absolutely loved this place for meeting people and partying, one of the craziest places I've ever been!! The staff were super friendly and the atmosphere was nuts!! Only downfall was no aircon in the huts and it was impossible to sleep during the day as it was so hot!! Other than that insane fun!


An institution and a must-visit if in Ios. Wonderful staff at the bar and kiosk, however the system and staff at the reception were absolutely terrible.


bar tenders great, hostel staff not so much. we stayed in a cabin so it was clean but the beds were quite uncomfortable. showers were operating but only have cold water. average but as far as party life goes on the island far out beach club is the place to stay


We opted for the air conditioned bugalow. It was a fair price. VERY simple. Double and single bed, stool and mirror. The showers were located close however no hot water in most of them. Again, it was cheap and we could have upgraded to the hotel village or the hotel if we wanted to pay more and have more facilities. The atmosphere was good. Food was great at the village restaurant. Recommend any of the pizzas. AMAZING! Transport into town was readily available however from 10pm can fill up..


Toilets werent kept clean regularly and we had heaps of dirt on our beds!

Nice place. Tons of fun. The music is pretty much set o replay every night.


its better to stay in town because thats where you go out at night, if you stay at farout its a hassle getting buses at night and usually you miss the last bus back and have to get cabs. considering how much you pay its really not worth it, facilities are like a camping ground with shared toilets/showers. air con costs extra and thats if you are in a proper room not a wooden box.


The hut I stayed in was more like a jail cell. Better than my expectations though. Had ceiling fan, power outlet, and a light. Plenty of room for 2 people. close to the beach and pool parties. The food there was actually really good and reasonably priced. The cocktail girls at the pool are really friendly and you can get all the drinks you want without having to move a finger. Great time for sure.


This is where you want to be for the partying in Ios so it is in a great location on the beach. We were given a room upgrade which was great - great aircon, 2 beds, spacious and clean. Great place to stay!


The parties were crazy, had a great time. But in terms of acomodation, there is room for improvement. The restrooms dont feel so clean and are not so well lit. The room is very very minimalist and the beds are hard. I believe new matrasses are in order. I didnt like the fact that the reception kept my passport until check out, this is the first time a hotel has asked me to do this.


Far Out has a great location and a great party atmosphere. My only complaint is that the Wifi never worked anywhere around the pool.
