Really nice stay. Looked after our bags as we were on a late ferry. Would recommend


Lovely location, close to the port, the beach


the place itself was very clean, quiet and good location.. if thats what your after in ios. the staff and owner were quick to stop any social gatherings, and did not offer a common room of any kind. every group of female travellers we met felt quite intimidated by one of the staff members, to the point where he was checking randomly in their rooms. would not suggest staying here alone. this place has potential, with alittle more open-minded staff! if your after a party, this isnt really ya place


Awesome hostel, had the best time. Would recommend it to anyone.


The man who runs this hotel was really rude, unfriendly and unwelcoming. The location was really inconvenient for getting home at night and if you know Ios well like we do, the location isn't a 3 minute walk into the village as advertised. I've been to ios 5 times now, and this is by far the worst place we have stayed in. If you're planning to go to Ios during peek season then book in advance and don't book this place.


walkable from centre and port. we got our own room despite the fact we booked a dorm, which was a pleasant surprise. No wifi in the room, and showers weren't great, but would definitely recommend it as a budget hostel.


Great place to stay and friendly staff. Excellent spot really close to Ios Village.


Really Good hostel, really clean. Doesn't really have that party vibe if your looking for it but still a good place to stay. It is located at the bottom of a really steep hill which takes about 5-10 mins to walk up to get to town. The staff were really friendly too.


Nice but an AC in all the rooms would be perfect


Stayed here for a night to get away from Far Out. It is a 10 min walk from the town bus stop, down a patchy stairway, which can be cumbersome after a long night. On the plus side it's a quiet area so you can actually sleep. The innkeeper is a nice guy who goes out of his way to look after guests. Reasonably priced home cooked food but no kitchen facilities for guests. A very quiet, family run hostel so you should go to Far Out to pre-drink and meet people. Good Wifi.


The staff was super friendly and I really enjoyed my stay. Some of the rooms had air conditioners while others did not. It would have been nice to have AC in all of the rooms. The hostel has a really nice rooftop where you can watch the sunset and drink. Good location, not in the middle of the craziness of Ios, but it's easily accessible. Town center is a short walk away.


Good place to stay, not a far walk from all the clubs for after a late walk.. Also close to the port. Good location.

Princess Sissy is very well situated and extremely clean. The price was very good!! Josie and Paul were stellar folks and extremely nice and helpful. We were very happy with everything from being picked up at the port without giving notice and getting recommendations on what to do and where to go. Highly recommended!

The only thing that i dont Like is:,the honors of the place took my passeport for all the time that i was there. I told him that i want my passeport after he took the information Inside but , he never want to give me back !!!! He give me the passeport only at the and of the vacation. Just to be sûre that the customer Will paid him at the end !!!! But after all, its a good place and very clean place . The person who took us at the port was very sympatic. Thank you !!
