Francesco's is the number one rated accommodation from hostelworld travelers in all of Ios, and with good reason, just take a look at the sunset view from our terrace bar at your right, that's what you could be enjoying your cocktails to 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 10 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 Francescos family.

There is an air-conditioned terrace bar with satellite television and breakfast café 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 Ios 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 and information on boat and plane tickets etc. , and all guests are encouraged to make use of our free safety deposit boxes. We also have an extensive travelers book exchange and no curfew or lock outs to disrupt your night or day.

There are double, triple, and quad rooms available for up to 150 people. All rooms have been newly renovated. Most have private bathrooms and there are also rooms available with shared facilities. All private rooms have air conditioning, televisions and telephones. 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 Matthew will pick you up from the boat free of charge, and also drop you off when you are leaving, which is also for free.

So don't waste any time guys and girls get booking and we hope to see you during the summer. And please remember book early for July and August as this is an extremely busy period for us.

    Francesco‘s ist definitiv eins der besten Hostels, die wir bis jetzt besucht haben! Es steht (nach Absprache) ein kostenloser Hafen-Shuttle zur Verfügung (mit schweren Gepäck würden wir nicht empfehlen, den Weg vom Hafen zum Hostel zu Fuß zu gehen). Wir hatten ein Doppelzimmer mit riesigen Balkon, tolles Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Das Zimmer verfügt über einen Kühlschrank, TV, eine Klimaanlage und einen Föhn. Wir haben uns herzlich empfangen gefühlt und würden jederzeit gerne wieder kommen!

    Bestes Hostel, in dem ich jemals gewesen bin. Das Zimmer war groß und sauber und mit einem Kühlschrank ausgestattet. Vom Fenster aus hatte man einen tollen Blick über das Meer, von der Terrasse ebenfalls, sodass man tolle Sonnenuntergänge sehen kann. Selbst vom Swimmingpool aus kann man das Meer sehen. Es gibt eine Bar mit fairen Preisen und die Gastgeber sind wahnsinnig tolle Menschen. Man fühlt sich dort wie zu Hause.

    Compared to Far Out, this place is really great. Despite the fact that there is no kitchen, you can use, you have a fridge at your room and a pool. Also the vibe is really great and you are situated very central, but without hearing all the party people. There are a lot of cheap supermarkets around and you only have to walk 10 minutes to the city beach. If you wonder, what hostel you should book on Ios, I would really recommend Francesco's.

    We spent a great time there! Host and the other stuff members are super lovely and welcoming! Free transport from the port was included and very well organized. The only thing that could be improved are the beds, which are quite uncomfortable to be honest. But the location is fantastic and the view from the beautiful pool area is amazing! I would definitely recommend staying at Francesco‘s!

    Das Hostel liegt extrem schön und der Hauptort ist in drei Gehminuten erreichbar. Der Service ist sehr gut und man wird am Hafen abgeholt und auch wieder zurückgebracht. Das Hostel ist sehr auf die Partytouristen ausgelegt. Die Meisten Besucher finden sich in Gruppen für das Nachtleben zusammen. Unser Zimmer war direkt an der Strasse und eher laut. Das Zimmer war auch bisschen feucht. Ansonsten aber eigentlich alles gut. Danke
