Liked: Great Staff, very friendly and always bringing out snacks for us, we went in the low season so not much of an atmosphere but it has a bar that i think gets pretty packed in high season.. Great location for going out, and not far from the main beach. Its close to markets and ATM, and nice swimming pool.

Disliked: Didnt have enough things to cook with or any bowls, cutting knifes, cutlery or cooking utensils. Apart for that was great.

Liked: Markos Village was brilliant. The hostel is right near all the action. It's a 2 minute walk from the nightlife, 20 minute walk or 5 minute bus from Mylopotas Beach. Everyone is really helpful too. The guy behind the bar gave us plenty of tips on where to eat and what to see and do and the couple that run the hostel are really friendly too. They went out of their way to help us with whatever we needed. Highly recommended!

Disliked: Damon left no negative feedback.

Liked: I really loved this place! When we got to the port, a nice guy picked us up and brought us to the hotel/hostel. It was so cool! There are different levels, the building is pretty and clean, and our room was really big. We even had a kitchen, which we weren't expecting. The location is also great- there were many bars right in the vicinity, and the beach was either a 5 min bus ride or 15 minute walk. It was a great beach as well- the water was gorgeous. I would highly recommend staying at the Markos Village.

Disliked: Nothing!

Liked: i stayed here once for 2 nights, and came back a week later for 5 more nights because i enjoyed it so much! trust me, you want to be near the town in Ios! the beach is where you want to go during the day - it's about a 15 minute walk and there are regular buses that stop almost just outside of Markos. When you're walking home at 7am, still drunk, the 2 minute walk to Markos from the town is a blessing. The pool is pretty nice too, and there are always people hanging out around . also all the rooms have a fridge to chill your pre-game drinks ;)

Disliked: could be more lounge chairs around the pool but there isn't really room - when it was too crowded we'd just walk to the beach instead

Liked: Great social atmosphere, George looks after absolutely everyone. The pool is great for when you want a break from the beach, absolutely central location on the only main road in town- right across from all the restaurants and nightlife. The best place we could've asked for, so happy we stayed here.. And we'll definitely be back!

Disliked: There is nothing to dislike!!

Liked: George the owner comes and picks you up and drops you off from the port which comes in handy. The vibe was pretty good nice small bar and decent pool to relax in.They have cheap meals also. George the owner is very helpful and works relentlessly. The location is perfect 2min walk overlooking all the bars and clubs. You must hire a quad or a scooter it will help as the main beach is a 10min ride away.

Disliked: The bathroom was old and pretty dirty the shower head squirted in all directions and the floor flooded. The bedroom was decent enough to say but nothing special.
