stayed in a 3 bed private with ensuite. would definitely stay at francesco's again - location amazing and our room was spacious with a balcony. cleaners came each day and cleaned our bathroom. staff friendly and helpful, although a little slow given the huge amount people going through the hostel everyday. brekky not included was a bit of a bummer as francesco's is the most expensive hostel we've stayed in - and a little disappointed that wifi is limited to the courtyard- not available in rooms.

The best place to stay on the island for a good time. Best staff going around, great fun place to meet people. I would go for the ensure rooms if you could but other than that it's amazing. Stayed in 100s of hostels around the world and this is top 10 all round for sure. The island itself is pretty hectic and everyone is young and loose so if that's not your scene, probably staying on Ios is not for you.

Lets face it you dont spend much time in the hostel in Ios. But its a great spot to meet travellers and tourists and enjoy what Ios has to offer. The staff were great and i would definitely return.

Most of bars are 5 mins away from the hotel. It has a really nice view and atmosphere. If I go that lovely island one more time im sure i will stay at Francesco's again!

Ran into some trouble during my stay that required medical assistence and staff couldn't have been more helpful. Had an pretty meh stay in Ios overall, because of it, but not because of the hostel, they're awesome, and couldn't have been happier with that.

Well run hostel next to village in Chora. Decent breakfast, clean rooms (shower could do with a shower curtain). Cleaning lady yelled at us in greek a lot. Wifi is only available in cafe and is quite slow as a lot of people are using it at the same time. If you want to meet a bunch of young Aussies, then this is the place for you.

Great place. Well run and clean. Towels are provided and location is close to all the night life with a brief bus ride to the main beach. The women in charge of reception is quiet charming along with the other staff members and owners. Rooms are also well ventilated, cooled via fan, and housekeeping does a good job of keeping the place in orderly condition despite the volume of people who are served. Value for money is also very good. Definitely a recommend.

Not often you get a hostel atmosphere in the Greek islands, but the massive bar/sitting area is a great place to meet people. Perhaps one of the few places in the islands you could stay whilst travelling solo. Wi-Fi is absolutely terrible, and needs to be available in rooms too. These guys make sure you have a good night and that is their largest priority. I did email them about a lost item of luggage but unfortunately received no reply which I thought was poor.

Friendly staff, great ratio people per room. Clean, lively. Great that they pick you up from port and help you with luggage too.

Absolutely amazing. Second time I have stayed here and would go back again. Staff were great and always willing to help out! Aircon in rooms were great but only can get wifi in the main balcony area and not in your room however all then cafes have wifi so it's not a problem. Best location

We had a great stay here. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help you, special mention to Alex who gave us a few special tips on the area. The social atmosphere at Francescos is also excellent, great way to meet people! Highly recommend!

Location is handy to the nightlife in ios.This is the perfect place to stay if you want to get drunk with a bunch of 20 year old Australians every day.

The 'après-beach' jacuzzi you read about in Lonely Planet is actually a pool, but that is still amazing. Great people, atmosphere, and organized nights out each night. They made sure you had a fun and memorable stay with them. Unforgettable!
