Great place to stay! We were upgraded to our own private room near the pool which was so lovely the staff really took care of us :) only bad thing was there was no wifi in the rooms and could be slow at times and the pool was warm but apart from that the view was amazing, clean rooms and great atmosphere

Best hostel experience I had! Extremely organised and friendly, helpful staff. The location is amazing and the view is the best in IOS. Doesn't feel like a hostel if you get a private room.

Francesco's was a lot of fun and in a perfect location for the nightlife that Ios has on offer. The views looking over the Port were an added extra.

there were a lot of unfair rules. As well there was mold on our ceiling and it felt like a prison cage.

If you are an Australian backpacker, stay here. It feels like home. Great location - right next to the clubs. Francesco is hilarious. Make sure you have a chat with him. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a place for a very young crowd. That being said if you like to party and meet to people; this is the place to stay. Every night there are welcome shots and everyone gets together and go out together. It's is a short and easy bus ride to far out beach and since there is nothing to do on the beach at night this is the perfect sport to walk to restaurants, bars, and shops.

Favorite hostel we stayed at! Perfect for young people looking to meet and go out. Includes a pool, bar with free shots every night, tour guide to the clubs, and tons of people to meet. Food isn't great at the hostel, but plenty good food available close by. Wifi pretty spotty.

Loved the personal approach that Francesco had as he personally greeted all of his guests. My friend and I had booked a dorm but he informed us that there were no beds left and asked if we would like a free upgrade to a private room, which we were more than happy to take! Would go back in a heartbeat!!

We had a great time at Francesco's! Its location is perfect, nestled right where the nightlife is, ans has an amazing view for sunset and sunrise! The bathrooms were very basic and there were not enough in the dorm we stayed in, for the amount of people. But everything else was clean and you were able to lock valuables up at reception. The staff were probably the nicest I have encountered on my whole trip, and went out of their way to help us find accommondation for our next location.

Best place to stay in Ios and one of the best hostels we have ever stayed in, if not the best. The rooms plenty of space and always have hot water. There's a free shuttle to and from the port and they even put the bags in a ute so you don't have to carry them up some stairs. Close to the nightlife but far enough away that it's quiet, Alex gives you a mini tour when you get there so you know where everything is. Pool/view are awesome. Great atmosphere for travellers. Only neg wifi really slow.

We had a lot of fun staying at Francesco's. The staff are really friendly and the atmosphere is good. The location is one of the best things about the hostel. Super close to the centre and nightlife. The pool is also great, with an awesome view over Ios. A downside was that there is no wifi in the rooms.

For starters, Francesco is THE MAN! The hostel is definitely a party hostel and is located right beside all the bars and night clubs. Amazing little terrace bar with a great view. Good food right around the corner. The rooms are clean and comfortable. I can't wait to come back!
