Awesome location, right in the center of downtown. Can't beat the burger and a beer deal for $6 in the beaver bar downstairs. Good rooms and beds. Please replace the pillows they are terrible. Best thing about the hostel is the daily activities and events in the bar. Steph does a great job at organising these. All of the staff are super friendly and helpful. Have extended my stay for 2 weeks. Would recommend to everyone!
New Years party was great. Thank you. I was in a 6 bed dorm. Good sized clean room. Lockers are not big enough for your whole pack but big enough for your valuables. Helpful and friendly staff. 2min walk to the metro. Would stay again
Located in a cool area just outside of the city. 10min walk to the metro. In a 6 bed dorm rooms were good. Not enough places to sit and chill in the downstairs common room at night. Staff were helpful but often seemed really busy like they had too much going on. Would stay again
Massive hostel with multiple common areas and rooms to hang out. Good dorm rooms. Friendly atmosphere with very helpful staff. Loved the 24/7 concierge desk. 1 min walk to the metro where you can access all of Manhatten. Only negative is the no drinking in the hostel rule.... for me this was the first time I have come across a place with this rule and I have stayed in HI hostels right across Europe.
Love St Christopher's! The best location!
Nice cheap hotel. Good location.
Good wifi. Everything else was good. No complaints but hard to justify the 43€ for a dorm bed.
Great hostel! I stay in St Christophers when ever I can in Europe. Good food in the restaurant. Nice bar. Massive lockers for all your gear in the rooms. Wifi was a bit on/off while I was there but apparently they are in the process of fixing this.
Good restaurant, standard rooms. Friendly helpful staff. Just no social atmosphere while i was there.
A lot of families and big groups come through here. This is the place where bucks parties etc come when they are not allowed in other hostels. Not really a place for solo travellers. You have to take the train one stop to city centre. Not really an issue though as they run frequently. Rooms are decent with medium size lockers. Good Wifi. Only one washing machine and dryer for a hostel that can hold hundreds of guests.
I would definitely stay again.
Big spacious rooms, good location. Just didn't have a real social vibe at all. Free coffee!
A nice change from the big commercial hostels. Somewhere you can relax and feel at home. Everything is included! Would definitely stay again. Thank you so much again Lily!
This is actually just a hotel with some hostel rooms. Good location right next to the main train station. The wine and spaghetti night was good however the wine is terrible but for 3€ it was definitely worth it. Overall it is a good place to stay but it is just missing the social vibe of other hostels
Good location close to the train station. Nice small hostel with mostly private rooms. Meet some other great travellers here. Staff on day shift weren't the friendliest. Having to vacate the hostel for cleaning during the day was a little frustrating.
Loved this place! Perfect location around all the restaurants and bars. Close to the bus stop to get down to Far Out Beach for parties during the day. The fun atmosphere around the hostel is great and the staff organise social gatherings every night. Awesome for meeting new people. If 'm every back in Ios I will definitely stay here again.

Amazing location. I was in an expensive private room but it was worth it after reading the reviews about the cheaper options. This place is for the sole purpose of partying. If im ever back again I would stay here and cough up the $$$ for the good rooms. Heaps of fun!
The roof top bar doesn't really live up to the hype but has a good view. Good location close to the metro and a heap of restaurants and bars. I was in a six bed dorm. The lockers aren't big enough for your bag so the room got quite cluttered. You have to go all the way down to reception to pick up the air con remote to adjust or turn it on and then return it. Bit of a mission from the higher floors. Breakfast was good and the staff were always helpful.
Great atmosphere! Awesome for a party and to meet new people. Mumsie and the rest of the staff are helpful and fun. My room was in one of the buildings across the street from the main hostel. The only negative was there was no air con and I couldnt open the windows to let fresh air in as it opened straight onto the street. A fan was provided but it just blew hot air around. I would definitely come back but just request another room.
Awesome! They just manage to get every aspect of hostel accommodation right! Would definitely stay again.
Excellent location. Good helpful staff. Meet heaps of great people here. The common area and small smoking balcony can get a little crowded but still isn't really an issue. Only real negative is the bathrooms are terribly small and is basically only a toilet cubicle with a shower head plugged in off the sink. I would stay here again though.
Everything was great except for the lack of cleaning. For 3 days the floors were not cleaned in the room.
Great staff. Great place.
Great helpful staff! Awesome friendly atmosphere to chill out and meet new people. Loved the BBQ nights :)
Ended up extending my stay to nearly a week here. Great hostel! Easy to meet and mingle for solo travellers. Fun and helpful staff. Ross is a champion!
Marko and Martin are by far the most welcoming and helpful hosts I have come across in my travels! Excellent location. You won't be disappointed!
Clean and tidy. Split over two buildings. Couldn't get the WiFi to work in the building I was in but it was fine next door. Location wasn't the best but you could still walk to the CBD in 15-20 min. Just didn't have any character or atmosphere. If all you need is a bed though this place will suit you just fine.
Big hostel with great shared common areas. Really fun city to go out in!
Stayed in a 2 bed dorm. Good clean rooms. Heating wss good. Nice hot showers. Had a great first night in the bar/restaurant downstairs. Unfortunately for me the next day they started renovations and I was woken by the sound of jackhammering. This continued all week. These renovations are suppose to take approx one month. If you like to sleep in I would avoid until after completion. Otherwise a great hostel!
Bathroom and shower needs repair and to be cleaned.
