Had a great stay! Perfect location and the staff are great!
LOVED this hostel! Security boxes available in reception and key entry into rooms. Location is fantastic - within the main town so you have access to all bars/clubs. Two bus stops to the main beach. Beautiful sunset view from the terrace. Staff is super friendly and so helpful, always smiling and stop to say hello to you. The atmosphere is amazing - everyone gathers for drinks and goes out together. Rooms are cleaned daily with sheets changed. Would highly recommend.
Great hostel located in a perfect location. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the free transfers to and from the ferry were great. The hostel is clean and the pool and bar area is pretty special with an amazing view over Ios. The only negative would be that the shower pressure was pretty bad but we absolutely loved out stay at Francescos :)

Another excellent stay at Francesco's,all staff were very friendly and made you feel at home. From the free transfer from the port at the beginning to the free transfer at the end of our stay everyone try to make you day easier. We were even given an upgrade because a better room was available. The whole hostel has the best views of IOS, 2 minutes walk from the main bars and old town yet the hostel is very peaceful. Also I totally recommend the yogurt, honey, muesli and fruit breakfast.
This place is great for those that intend to party on the Ios island (the island itself is mainly for partying and site seeing). Greatly located on an adjoining street to the main "party" road, this hostel has one of the best views on the island from the pool and bar. The Internet is practically not there but they have a computer you can use that works slightly better.

Certain staff members were very rude and hostile. One guy from New Zealand especially.
Absolutely loved staying here! Such a good group of people! Staff we amazing! Air con was perfect and lovely clean rooms. The pool was good and so close to the clubs and bars! We were so sad to leave and three nights definitely wasn't enough, I will be back again next year for at least a week. I highly recommend you staying here, if I had to be picky and find a fault it would be that the wifi didn't reach our room because we were upstairs, but we didn't care because we were having too much fun!
The staff go out of there way to help you and make your stay as enjoying and will recommend Francesco to everyone who is going to Ios
