Great experience at this hostel. Owner picked us up from the port and made us feel very welcome from the beginning, he then invited us to dinner at the restaurant he owns (The mills) which was amazing food (with a discount) and free shots. I found there was not a lot to do in Ios during the day so the pool was welcome bonus too. Definitely stay here!
Beautiful venue, clean pool and view to die for. Only hang up was that we decided to change accommodation a few days prior to arrival for our last few days in Ios. I emailed and warned them of the change in our reservation 3 days prior. The owner was openly upset with me about my change in reservation and had no trouble letting me know what he thought of me. Interesting way to treat paying customers! Great place for views and quiet fun.

Had a lovely stay here! The owner and his daughters are amazingly friendly and helpful. Unfortunately we had to go to the hospital on our Holiday an the owner drove us there for free. The location is a bit out of the town but we were happy to walk a bit for such great service.
A lovely place to stay and the staff will go out of their way to help you. The owner cooked me a delicious breakfast one morning and offered us coffee on arrival. I was also able to have a massage on site which was wonderful. Just a short walk downhill to the town. However, we were disappointed to find that the pool was empty during our stay and the hot tub was nowhere to be seen, as those were the main reasons that we booked. Reception closes at 3, which was a bit of a nuisance. Bad wifi.
