I stayed 3 nights in a 2 bed dorm room. The positives: 1. Cleaning happens daily so room was always neat and tidy. 2. The hostel owners were extremely friendly and helpful. 3. The hostel is in Chora and is convenient. 4. Free transfer from and to port for ferry. The negatives: 1. Before May, low season, there is very little atmosphere as few people go to Ios. 2. The jacuzzi and pool is not available during low season.
Lovely place to stay, the staff, Maria, Francesca and Alex are so nice and helpful. Definitely will come back here when I'm back in Ios
We absolutely loved this place! The staff are so friendly and treat you like family. They provide transport to and from the port, which was awesome. The views are amazing and it's close to all the bars and restaurants. Our room was large and very comfortable with plenty of hot water in the showers. I highly recommend Francesco's to anyone!
