buy your own booze and drink it at the picnic tables above the poolside restaurant
Amazing location and beach. A pretty good stay overall
Lovely room, perfect location right by the beach. It is definitely worth paying extra for air conditioning as it gets extremely hot!
Great place with good vibes. Disappointed we had to pay extra to use the air con in our room.

It is exactly what you'd expect from a big party hostel. You won't be disappointed. It has a great location, good staff and very good facilities. I stayed in one of the bungalows which was very nice. A/C costs an additional 5 euros per night but that didn't worry me. However, as a solo traveler I would not stay here again because it's somewhat difficult to meet people (no common area aside from the beach and the pool).
Everyone was super friendly! Steps from the beach.! This is the place you want to be if you like to have a good time! Defently if I ever find myself in ios I will come back to farout!

Insane value for money, this place is the place to be. Stay in the room w/private bathroom as this means the difference between a hotel room with tv, fridge, daily room cleaning, towels or a stuffy bungalow with no windows, just a bed. Far out is the place to be, and even people who are staying in town end up here to hang out during the day because it's so good. There's even basketball, volleyball, tennis or ping pong if you feel like playing. Heaven!
This is my favourite hostel all over the world! It has 3 great pools, right in front of a clear water beach, and you can party all day at the pool parties on mid June till August. It also has BBQ's once in a while, and great food for cheap price. Totally recommend it. Plus, ios is awesome...
Stayed just outside of peak season... best upgrade new apartment type accommodation. Cheap beach beds. Great food at resturant. Cheaper to buy alcohol at the Aussie shop up the road rather than mini market. Water sports are VERY expensive. Best night life in Ios town. Best beach at Far Out by day!!!
We had a great stay here in one of the little bungalows. It was cool and clean. The shared shower facilities could have been cleaner and better looked after though. The pool area and restaurant is fantastic I not to mention the gorgeous beach right in front.
Far Out is THE party place to be on the island. I spent my 22 birthday here, bouncing between different groups of Aussies, Canadians and Americans. The hostel is located right on the beach, a sharp climb or 1.6€ bus ride from the village where the party lasts all night. I shared a female bungalow with a Montreal who, like many others, decided to stay and work for the season. And why not? Ios is perfect!

BEST HOSTEL EVER! You honestly can't even call it a hostel. It's more like a beautiful beach resort. I had the most amazing time of my life here. The staff is awesome. They offer soooo many things to do! You can do everything from scuba diving to tubing to cliff jumping, they have great food, bars, basically a club, and its all on the beach. Far Out has everything you could ever want and I would 1000000% recommend this place to anybody going to Ios. You'll regret it if you don't stay here!
I absolutely loved my stay at Far Out! The room, staff, beach and everything completely exceeded my expectations. Although it is a little out of town, the beach and people made it amazing, and it is only a short walk in if you need to go. Definitely recommend a stay here, and definitely will be back!
Far Out Beach Club is made for the "farniente", to take your rest on the beach/swimming pool for 1 or 2 days max, not more. The room was cleaned, with air conditioning, wifi, TV.. all the mini market around are really expensive, and to reach the port you can walk (30min) or take the bus every hour (not optimal). Densely populated by australian/american bodybuilders or barbie dolls, it's difficult to connect with someone.There is no activity indeed proposed by the club as we can expect in a club.
This.place.is.amazing!!! Yes it was early season, but by no means did that mean it was lacking! The Beach Club was not open yet, but that only meant I had a whole bungalow to myself and you could actually get some sleep :P You got to use the pool for the hotel which is just beautiful, and the atmosphere was great all day long. The locations is gorgeous, right by the beach. Make sure you try one of the fabulous salads in the restaurant. It was so hard to leave this place, I just kept extending!!
Staff is very friendy and easy going. Location is great for just about everything.
