I LOVED the shady front garden!


Such a cute environment in the hostel. Very cheap for a private room and bath with balcony. Staff was friendly and offered breakfast and pick up from the port (though it's only a five minute walk from there). Not necessarily the best place to meet fellow travelers, but great for a quiet getaway. Not around the party location of Ios if you're interested in being close to that.


Galini were there to pick us up from the ferry port and drop us off without fail. On arrival we go handed a map and given all important information on where to go for every event, how to get there etc. the location is perfect and easy walking distance to beaches and busses to other areas. Our room was cleaned every day and was very comfortable and spacious. The only minor thing was that the wifi did not work efficiently in the room.


Best stay!!! For 18 euros a night, I got an awesome single room with amazing A/C, a mini fridge, a great double bed and a nice bathroom. Wifi was also perfect, I was able to watch movies online on my phone. I had such a relaxing stay, and it was just a 3 minute walk to the beach. Not a party place if that's what you're looking for, but if you're looking for peace and quiet this is it! The staff were really nice and helpful! I would stay here again 100% :) food was also great!


Thank you for the stay. You were very helpful and lovely. Would come back again. Thankyou for making our stay in Ios a good one :)

Such an excellent place to stay and would highly recommend to other travellers! Comfortable double bed room (cleaned daily) with ensuite and with small kitchenette (bar fridge, sink, cutlery and plates) aircon and TV. The staff are very friendly and welcoming picking us up from the port (it's so close you can easily walk in 5mins) very close to the beach and mini market. We hired a quad bike for €25 for 24hrs and drove around the island, had such a fantastic time in Ios!


Such beautiful staff they made sure we had a great time and helped us with everything including the best place to seethe sunset to eat and transfers to the port which is less than 5 minutes walk! The property is absolutely gorgeous and right near the best beach. The village is not too far at all and it was good to stay a little out of the commotion! Thanks very much


I'd say this is the best place I have ever stayed! The staff is awesome! The environment is great, ideal to relax after partying hard in Ios! haha seriously It's really worth it! I do recommend this place...


BEST STAFF EVER!!! Such beautiful lovely people so so helpful and was a really gorgeous place to stay
