Property Description

Francesco's is the Number One Rated accommodation from travellers in all of Ios.

We have been rated the Best Hostel in Greece at the Hoscars every year since 2012. Plus, in August 2012 and 2006 we were voted the Sixth-Best Hostel in the World. And with good reason - just take a look at the sunset view from our terrace bar; that's where you could be enjoying your cocktails each evening during your stay in Ios.

We are located in Ios town, just a short stumble from the night life in the main square and a 20 minute walk from the main beach. There are also six other beaches within comfortable walking distance. There is no need to have a long, dark walk home at night after your bar hopping adventures.

We are a family run hostel where everybody is made to feel at home and all your needs are catered to. From the time you arrive to the time you depart you become part of the Francesco's family.

There is an air-conditioned terrace bar with satellite television and breakfast cafe which overlooks the port, beach, and one of the best sunset views on the island, as you can see in the photo. All guests are invited for a free welcome drink and a chance to meet fellow travelers in our friendly bar to start their first night on Ios. None of our guests ever pay the cover charge at the famous Blue Note, one of the most popular clubs on the island.

Some of the amenities which are offered at Francesco's include 24-hour hot water, a new reception area with internet cafe, tourist information- information on boat tickets etc., and all guests are encouraged to make use of our free safety deposit boxes (they are provided at the reception area). We also have an extensive travelers book exchange and no curfew or lock outs to disrupt your night or day.

There are private double, triple, and quad rooms available for up to 150 people. All rooms have been newly renovated. There are also rooms available with shared facilities ( Dorms ). All private rooms have air conditioning and televisions. A number of rooms have private balconies with ocean views. There are also dorm beds available for solo travelers. All rooms are serviced daily as we pride ourselves on how spotlessly clean our accommodation is, we realize what a difference this makes to a guests stay.

On your day of checkout we offer free left luggage and free showers if you decide to go to the beach and have an afternoon or night ferry to catch.

After you make your booking with us all you have to do is either e - mail or call us with your boat details and our driver will pick you up from the boat free of charge and also drop you off when you are leaving, which is also for free. ( For late night or very early morning ferries we cannot guarantee transfer ) .

So don't waste any time guys and girls get booking and we hope to see you during the summer.

LONELY PLANET SAYS - 'The well run Francescos, with good clean rooms, is near the centre of things and is a lively meeting place for backpackers. The party spirit rules supreme. It has a busy bar and terrace with great views of the harbor'
LETS GO SAYS -'The Godfather of accommodations in Ios, Francesco oversees a family of hotels. Standard rooms with private bath and air conditioning sit atop a convial terrace bar.'

    Everything was excellent besides for the fact that there are only two small toilet cubicles for people staying in dorms, and they also double as showers so they were often covered in water from people who had just had showers. That hardly detracted from what was otherwise an awesome stay. Staff are excellent, the view is incredible and the atmosphere was amazing.
