Best place in Ios to stay. Amazing location, our room had the most beautiful view over the ocean and town. It's close to all the bars and clubs, close to cafes and supermarkets. Only a quick 5 min bus from the beach. The rooms are very clean and well equip, air con, clean showers etc. The staff were super helpful welcoming and friendly. The atmosphere is great too, the pool during the day and the bar at night. Good for groups or solo travellers - you can't get lonely! Would 100% stay again!

Most uncomfortable bed ever but as long as you get into the partying I guess you can sleep in anything! Not amazing Security for your belongings but they try. Shower is not ideal either was cold on most occasions I tried to use it.

Stayed for one week. Fantastic hostel. Had an amazing time. Would definitely stay there again. Could add lock boxes in rooms instead of only at reception.

We stayed a week in a private room here and would highly recommend this hostel! Pros: Awesome location - 2 minute walk from bars/clubs + 5 mins walk to bus to beach Great atmosphere Drinks each night Tv, air con, hairdryer in privates Most staff are super awesome Cons: Wifi only in common area from 9am-12am! Hand held showers = flooded bathrooms Some of the more senior staff can be a bit funny, they would make up noise complaints so that people would have to drink at bar.

The staff is generally rude, probably the greek sense of hospitality, the hostel is so wide you get lost in every street of Chora, you walk a lot to get your room. I had both a private room with a very noisy and inefficient air conditioning, and the electricity in the whole hostel is not able to charge a phone properly. The common room with 3 beds had just 1 socket and no security at all, one shower for the whole floor. And very expensive for the overall facility. Only good is the small pool

Really nice hostel, nice staff, really comfortable rooms and a wonderful view. A little bit far from the beach but near to the center city and to nightlife.

Francescos' was by far the most enjoyable accommodation I've stayed at during my eurotrip. The staff were beyond friendly and went out of their way to help us book additional accommodations in other Greek islands, and transportation from and to the port. The atmosphere was exceptional, welcoming and inclusive. Exceptional location for nightlife. Definitely recommend to all travellers looking for a good time. The receptionists are good people!!

Amazing family run Hostel! Francesco picked us up from the port and took us to the amazingly located hostel. So central to everything (especially clubs) and every night Francesco and his crew take you out to the main strip (not before free welcome shots in the bar) very social, AMAZING price for what you get. No lockers in rooms and communal shower/toilet block but very clean, good pool. Probably best hostel in Ios and much better value than the camping options in August.

Great place to stay overall. The double room we had, had a massive balcony and an amazing view with stunning sunsets. The room included a fridge and good air con. The room is ultra close to the centre of the village but far enough away that you will enjoy a quiet nights sleep. The staff were a mixed bag with some being extremely helpful and others been slow and careless (overall the great staff made up for the not so good). The pub crawl was a bit average but these things can be hit or miss.
