Great hostel to stay in for socialising. The hostel is located in the main town with probably some of the best views of the sunset in Ios. The pool also has a great view of the sunset and ocean, everyone hangs around the pool area during the day then meets at the hostel bar later at night for a free...

Best to go if you're looking to go out every night. They run a nightly pub crawl ending at the strip of clubs you spend the rest of the night. The staff were amazingly helpful in booking restaurants and supplying transport to and from ferries. To get the most out of it you need to put yourself out there, but...

As soon as it was mentioned to staff the...

The man who showed us the house could barely speek english and was very very unpolite. we took a while to decide if...

Francesco's is in perfect location, as you can walk home on nights out from the bars/clubs. It is also near plenty of ATMs and supermarket just down outside the lil village. Accomodation wise we were so happily shocked with how nice our rooms were, we were in a private two people bed room, air con worked well, showers were "hand...

When we first arrived at Francescos a huge standout was its centrality in the town of IOS. Food, Bars and clubs were all in a 100m radius which was extremely convenient. A large disappointment for me was the terribly rude staff and the standards of the rooms. If your room was too messy you were sure to hear it from...

I stayed in 3 different places while on Ios and Franceso's was my favorite! All of the workers and the people staying at the hostel were very friendly. I met a lot of people, which was great because I was traveling solo. It's also in a great location - very close to all of the restaurants/bars and the bus stop!...

after a rough boat ride to Ios... we demanded our tour leader sort us some accommodation... Enter Francesco... this man welcomed us with open arms, drove us in his bus to the resort... an amazing place with unrivaled views... If we were ever lost on the island everyone knows where's 'Frankie's Place' is... will definitely back.. Thanks Frankie! x
