Francesco's was the best hostel of our two month trip. From the moment we arrived in Ios we were well looked after, with a free transfer to and from the port, free upgrade from a 6 bed dorm to a 2 bed private room at no extra cost. The room was clean with air con and cleaning every two days. The bathroom facilities were shared but fine as there were at least 4 bathrooms for 6 rooms. Wifi only in public areas was ok. Drinks at 10pm were a good way to meet people. Overall a great experience!

Rooms very hot in the night. Mattresses were terrible, never seen anything as bad

Francesco is amazing, this hostel is amazing. My only regret is that I didn't stay longer. The room was clean and had a decent amount of space. The staff were always willing to help. People we met here were friendly. The pool is great for nursing a hangover. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

I never bother doing one of these reviews but in this case I feel I have too. This is hands down the best place I have stayed in Europe. Francesco and his family are lovely and they make you feel like part of their family too (not just a number like other places). You are so close to the clubs and the night life it ridiculous and the hangover breakfast they do at their restaurant is amazing. It's a shame I was only their for four days, but will definitely be going back next year.

Lots of fun. The staff was so helpful. Wish we could have had wifi in our rooms but easier to meet people in the cafe area.

Francesco is a Lord. Location is perfect for going out. Better than staying on the far out side. Ask for some of francescos rakia, it's a night turner.
