We had a great stay at Francescos. It is one of the best hostels I have been to and I can't wait to return! The staff is very welcoming and we met a lot of great people!
The staff was excellent- exceedingly helpful and friendly and the location/view is hard to beat! Loved the pool area and deck overlooking Ios and the Aegean Sea.
I loved everyone there :) it made for a great birthday! I definitely want to come back whilst my sister is over, plus to see everyone! Thanks for a great holiday :)

Absolutely nothing to fault. Best hostel on the island with everything you could possibly want or need. You must stay here at least once. I plan to stay again!
The hostel had a nice location and the staff was helpful. The toilets/showers were small but cleaned several times a day.
Francesco's is the only place to stay in Ios. Was a bit quiet when I was there, as I was in off season, but over summer this place would crank. Has a private bar and pool area, amazing views over the port and all the staff are fantastic. They all knew me on a first name basis within the first 12 hours of being there! Great atmosphere, rooms are very comfortable and very clean. This place gets very busy over summer, so book early and get into the best place in town! Will definitely be back!
