Description de l’établissement

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.

**PLEASE NOTE: Cash Payment only

**PLEASE NOTE: Free internet access and WiFi is available all around the pool, the terrace and the bar area from 09:00-24:00. WiFi is not available in the rooms.

    C'était superbe. Nous avons réellement profité avec mon copain de tout ce que cet hotel avait à offrir. Le staff est généreux et gentil et nous regrettons de ne pas avoir pu rester plus longtemps. Tout est très propre, la vue est magnifique depuis la salle principale. Tout est à quelques minutes. Les bars sont à trois min à pieds. Tout était impeccable.

    My stay at Francesco's was amazing! And i'm not only talking about the facilities of the hostel which are great (it's really like a hotel) but also the family that runs it, because they (Francesco, Maria, Elizabeth, Vaggelis) truly make you feel at home and give you the opportunity to experience the best. Thanks for the great talks and that dinner Maria, thanks for the jokes Elizabeth, thanks for the wild parties Vaggelis. I will be back! Omar, from Paris!

    The hostel was perfect. The view from the balcony... breathtaking! Maria and Francesco's were so kind and helpful. The price for a private room with a incredible view was pretty cheap. The place looked like a hotel. Would go back, anytime, and I will go back.

    Outstanding hostel. The facilities, the room and the view are on point! We were very happy to stay at this hostel. The location is also particularly good! The only negative point we could find were the check-in and check-out. Check-in was slow (we arrived on a busy day, saturday) and check-out transfer was too early. We had to wait at the harbour for over an hour. Finally, special thanks to the woman in charge who is very professional and gave us many small tips. We hope to come again!

    Super auberge très bien placée dans le village de Chora. Chambre basique avec un magnifique balcon vue sur mer. Mais il manque quelques trucs pratique comme une corde ou un étendage pour étendre les linges et maillots de bain, ou encore des verres et pour finir le rideau de douche n'était pas adapté au dimension de la douche... résultat une piscine à la fin de la douche :( Ménage tous les jours et changement des linges tous les deux jours et des draps. Tout était vraiment très bien !!!

    We booked a private room and where quite disappointed when we found out that there was no storage place for our clothes. The room was clean and the staff was pretty nice. It seemed like the ambiance was amazing, but annoying that you can’t bring your own drinks to the common areas. Also annoying, there is no kitchen! For the rest, the staff is very helpful and we had a great time. The view from the pool is also pretty mind blowing!!!
