  • Really enjoyed my time at Francesco's. The location is perfect and the views are espetacular! It is also a great place to meet fellow travelers. Ios is a very pleasant and cosy island (late September, that is). I wholeheartedly thank Maria, Elizabeth, Alex and Francesco for making my holiday so special!! Will definitely go back!!

  • Couldn't have been happier to snag a last minute reso at the famous Francesco's! Well worth the money, great pool and view. Staff were amazing, helpful and friendly. No request was too small or too big. Right outside the action of the bars, the hostel was clean, easy to navigate (even after a few drinks) and was a great place to meet fellow travelers. This place is a must see! Thank you!

  • absolutely loved Fransesco's Hostel! It was in a great location, not too far from the beach, all the nightlife was right around the corner, good places to eat really close by and a supermarket very close as well. Loved everyone working there, they were all really eager to make sure we had a great stay , which we did. Free shots every night were awesome before heading to Blue note for really cheap drinks! had a great time all in all!

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
