Descripción de la propiedad

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.

    Excelente. Un lujo la atención que nos brindaron, realmente nos hicieron sentir como en casa. Estuvieron en cada detalle y siempre se preocuparon por nuestra estadía. Lo mejor: la vista desde la pileta, inigualable!

    Everbody that works there will become like your little family. They are interested in your wellbeing and will help you with anything you need. The beds are comfortable and the views are pretty great. I couldn’t use the swimming pool, but it looked awesome. A very relaxing environment, but if you’re looking to party, don’t worry, they’ll sort you out. Thank you Francesco Family for everything and hope to see you again!!

    No hay sitio mejor para estar en Ios. En el mismo centro de Chora, con piscina, un personal super agradable y siempre dispuesto a ayudar. Francesco es genial. Totalmente recomendable y para repetir.

    Muy recomendable.A pocos minutos a pie del centro, pero caminando se llega fácilmente.Asimismo, por la zona del hostel hay lindos restoranes y pubs. 2do piso pero cuenta con ascensor.Los dueños son muy amables y siempre dispuestos a ayudar y sugerir qué visitar y en qué momento.Baño compartido pero nunca tuvimos que esperar para usarlo, grande y cómodo, y principalmente muy limpio.Desayuno completo. Lo único que agregaría sería aire acondicionado en las habitaciones (hay un ventilador pequeño)

    Buen Hostel en general. Lo único malo es que no tiene cocina. Lo mejor, la privilegiada vista desde el bar y la piscina. Un Hostel bastante animado, Ideal para el que busca socializar y salir de fiesta.

    La habitación compartida era de a 3 y no de 4 como habíamos reservado, muy pequeña, sin aire acondicionado y casi sin ventilación.. tuvimos que cambiar por una privada y el valor era de 40€ por persona por noche, un tanto excesivo para los servicios que ofrece el hotel. El wifi funcionaba en el bar, la piscina y la recepción.

    La ubicación esta bien. El problema es por empezar que no habia agua caliente y nos tenials que bañar con agua helada. Además tuvimos problemas con el aire acondicionado que no funcionaba. Lo peor fue la señora que atiende en recepción nos trato muy mal y nos grito varias veces porque le pedimos que nos arregle el aire acondicionado.
