Hostel was excellent, staff were so helpful and even did free transfers from the port. They gave us all the information we needed on what to see including buses etc. Hostel was very clean, would definitely stay there again if I went back to Ios.

This hostel has very clean, secure and in a great location in the town of Ios. The staff were all very helpful and friendly, made us feel welcome. In off season, it is very quiet and peaceful but I can imagine in peak season this place is very popular and lively. Will have to revisit at a busier time for a taste of that atmosphere. Really enjoyed our stay here.

This was the Perfect hostel! Nice location, even the best view for sunsets. The rooms were very clean. The staff was awesome, helpful and very caring! You feel like home! We didn't want to leave this place! All the people there meet up at 10.30 pm for some Drinks at the bar and head to the Bars and Clubs in the town together. We loved it!

We stayed at Francescos for 2 nights and had an awesome time! The sunsets are beautiful and very comfy beds. But most of all Mama Maria is the most welcoming host made us feel like we were family, highly recommended.

I loved my stay at this place. The view from the terrace outside is absolutely amazing. The staff treated everyone like family. It's located at the top of the hill and there are a lot of steps to get up there, so pack light! Bathrooms were a bit on the small side but the value for money is unbeatable.

Everything about Francescos was excellent. They picked us up from the port, the staff was very hospitable and friendly and the rooms are excellent value for money. This hostel makes you feel at home with a very social and party vibe, allowing everyone to get to know each other easily. Location is perfect right in the middle of the bars and clubs so very easy to get back after a night out. 100% would recommend!!

Thank you so much for the best stay at you're hostel! You were all so nice, helpful and extremely friendly. An extra thank you for all of the help we got when our wallet was stolen. We would love to come back to Francesco's someday! And thank you Nicos for all the extra good drinks :)

We absolutely loved our stay at Francesco's, the staff were definitely the highlight. The rooms themselves were very clean and serviced daily and the location was excellent, right in the heart of all the nightlife. The view of the sunset from the bar was awesome and it also provided a great place to meet everyone and socialise. If we ever come back to Ios we will definitely stay here again.

Amazing place to stay! Only downside was that there was no communal kitchen! OTher than that, an a+ place to stay

Such a fantastic hostel! Wonderful location, beautiful owners and a great atmosphere. Despite being a solo traveller, I decided to take a single room at Francesco's as the price difference between a private and dorm was not much at all. While I was worried this might impact my socialising, the hostel is incredibly welcoming with a big social area which everyone hangs out in. Would absolutely stay here again.

Amazing location! Had an amazing time in Ios

This place was great! They had nightly pub crawls and Francesco and his wife were so friendly and helpful. The only downfalls were that there was no wifi in our room (private) and there were no lockers in the rooms (in reception). It's right in the heart of iOS close to all of the bars and has a great pool and bar. Even though we were there near the end of the season it was still fun!

One of the best hostels I've ever visited. Located in such a prime spot only a walk away from the party scene, with port pickup and drop off. Hostel does welcome shots every night and then we all go out together. Great place to meet new people!

We had an awesome stay at Francescos! Everyone was very helpful and our room was very clean. It had a great location and definitely one of the best hostels I have stayed in. The pick up and drop off service was not only free but extremely helpful! will definitely recommend Francescos to anyone else! Thank you for making our stay in Ios the best!
