didn't stay here


Great hostel - nice clean rooms with good air con as well as a decent pool with a cafe next to it. Good location too: very close to the beach and Far Out, while being far enough away to sleep soundly at night.


Budget for travellers who like to party and go the beach. Great staff. Great pool. Get what you pay for in rooms. Right on thr beach. Can walk to far out hostel and party there while staying somewhere more quiet. Met amazing people here by the pool. Free transport to and from port.


Less than one minute away from the beach; also the possibility to book private dorms at an affordable price; clean; close to bus staion/shops/supermarkets. Very friendly staff, very responsive to your needs. Definitely recommend!


George is hilarious! I always thought he was on something and he always thought I was on something. Haha. The location is central and the staff is all really nice. There is free shuttle service to and from the ferry port.


Not a lot of atmosphere. Has a pool which is great and a fridge in the room, big thumbs up. Really close to lots of mini markets and food. Close to the beach. Bathroom wasn't nice. No hot water, facilities a bit broken. Although comfy bed. Wouldn't stay there again though


The staff is great, the location is great, and the atmosphere is great. Nothing to complain about!


Great location near the beach, also with a nice pool. Close enough to the town for a short bus ride or a long-ish walk, although the walk from town to the hostel is not bad at all. Fun atmosphere without being too rowdy.


Really good hostel, good pool and bar. The rooms were great. Quite quiet though, no party there or anything like it.


I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. It's in an ideal location close to the beach and just a short bus ride away from the main town. The staff were fantastic and the pool area was great


The hostel is in a great location, so close to the beach and only a quick bus ride into the town. George is absolutely amazing! He is so friendly and will go out of his way to make sure your stay is wonderful and tries to accomodate to your needs. Couldn't have been more happy with my stay

Just the greatest place to stay in Ios, staff are amazing, location is ideal, half way between the village and Far Out. 30secs from the beach, pool is great, rooms are cleaned daily and great value for money! Pick Up from Ferry too is key!
