    I was slightly put off by other reviews out here, but I'm glad I stayed cause it's a really nice hostel! Sure, the hostel rooms may be smaller than other hostel's I've been to, but it was clean, have a great location, and the owner was SUPER friendly. Shout out to the cleaning lady who makes the bed and even help me fold some of my stuff I just leave laying around. For this price this hostel is a great value!

    I stayed in Princess Sissy for 2 weeks and it’s become my second home on Ios! Niko is the loveliest guy, always willing to help out and he even gave me a private room for the price of a dorm. It is of course not the fanciest place I’ve ever stayed but it’s perfectly functional, and for the price it’s actually excellent. I met some amazing people there too. I didn’t have access to a kitchen (due to dorms not being open yet) but I think usually you would. There’s a terrace with a great view too!

    Friendly staff, we were upgraded from a dorm to a private which was a nice surprise. Great location, easy to walk to the town and the port. Would recommend.

    There’s nothing wrong with this place, it’s just that there are so many other better places around the corner for maybe just a euro or two more a night. Perhaps it would be better when busy in a normal season but this year it was just very quiet and lonely. The rooms are clean and well equipped, it was just the atmosphere and location that let it down a bit.

    The location is really good! just a short walk up to the Chora and down to the port. There is a bit of a hill but it’s very manageable. The rooms were pretty average. The whole room felt humid from the bathroom and the beds felt damp. The bathroom had a funky smell about it, most likely from all the mould on the ceiling and on the walls. The staff were nice enough but we kept finding our items hidden in the drawers, easily forgotten. Also a friend’s necklace went missing.

    The bathroom had a curtain pole, with no curtain, so water got everywhere. The electricity went out at one point with no warning. The aircon was SO LOUD in the bottom bunks it felt like being in a jet plane, the beds themselves were extremely uncomfortable. Every request seemed to be an inconvenience. The roof was off-limits due to construction, when I asked about the breakfast that was meant to be available (for 7 euro) the options were not only extremely limited (as in no coffee) but not ready

    I booked this as a last minute alternative as the hostel I really wanted to go to was fully booked. I was disappointed at the lack of security, there was no locker facilities so I didn’t feel safe leaving stuff in a room with three very hungover roommates I had only just met. The room was also super small for the amount of people sharing Checked out a day early and switched hostel! Only good thing was the free ferry pick up.

    Beside the name there is nothing good about this hostel. The staff is rude, the rooms are very small and unclean, you have to walk up a very long and steep staircase to get to the city center and worst of all there is no social atmosphere at all. Definitely don’t go as a solo traveler.

    We booked a room for 5 people and they separated our group, the staff were rude about it and didn’t apologise or fix their issue. The rooms were too small to fit 5 people + bags, and quite dirty. There were no lockers in the rooms so we did not feel safe to leave our belongings. The bathrooms were disgusting, there was black mould everywhere, it actually made one of our friends sick. Only good part of the hostel was the view. If it’s the last place on Ios I wouldn’t go back.
