Liked: The purple pig is an awesome place to stay in ios. The location is right down on the beach, a quick walk to Farout and the bus stop to the village is right outside. The room was clean and cool at night. The best part of this hostel is the staff, it is a family run place so they know how to treat you, especially George! If I'm ever back in Ios I will definitely book the purple pig again!

Liked: Don't stay anywhere else! I can't fault this place. I had the most amazing stay in Ios. The staff are amazing and go that extra mile, especially George. The hostel is so close to the beach, has a cool bar and a beautiful swimming pool. Rooms were clean and spacious and beds were comfy!

Disliked: Nothing - I loved it.

Liked: While I've stayed at places right on the beach or with fancier facilities, purple pig was by far the best because the staff - George and his dad - were so incredibly friendly and went out of their friendly way to be helpful and ensure we had a good stay. Would not stay anywhere else on ios!! Close to the beach, dorm rooms are spotless with fresh towels and sheets, and even a balcony. Definitely stay here!!

Disliked: Nothing!

Liked: The entire facility is amazing, and the staff are phenomenal. George (one of the main staff members) is truly a boss, and drank with the group each of my nights in Ios. The pool and bar are far nicer than the pictures make them seem. The hostel is family run, and you can truly feel their warmth.

Disliked: The wifi only works in the lobby. The showers didn't really get hot (but I hear this happens nearly everywhere)

Liked: In front of a nice beach, where you could chill during the day (or walk to the opposite end where Far Out goes off), and easy to get to town by bus, where you could party all night. It had a good pool too but being so close to the sea, no one seemed to use it. Great greek salad at the bar. Good rooms, with bar fridge. Cheap minimarkets around. Free shuttle from/to the port.

Disliked: The AC system in the rooms, which only worked if all doors were securely closed, was a bit annoying. It was hard to close the balcony door tightly enough for it to work.

Liked: nice size rooms and bathrooms. Management was really friendly and helpful..why stay in the dog boxes of 'far out' when you can stay around the corner in a big room and still hit far out for the pool party everyday!?! Pick up from the port was good and met other travellers very easily

Disliked: matthew left no negative feedback.

Liked: close to the beach, nice swimming pool, free wifi, pc at the reception, room with air condition and a fridge. giorgos is helpful provides free transport to the port.

Disliked: the room was clean but the shower and the toilet no. there was no bin in the room. Also there is no kitchen or a small sink. Wifi works only near the reception, not in the rooms. overall i would say it's good value for money, they should take care a bit more the cleaning.

Liked: Great location, close to the beach, ATM and all restaurants. Short bus ride to town. Great swimming pool and food. Location is quiet to get sleep, yet plenty of other travelers to join. Port pick up

Disliked: The bathroom isn't great and the beds are a little short, but that was the least of our worries!

Liked: The place is great to go with friends. It has a pool and a bar with view to the sea. It is far from far out so you can chill out. It works more like a hotel with shared room where you can bring anyone. We can use the pool after going to the nightclubs and see the sun rising. Excellent place for chilling, would go back definetely. At the other hostel you cannot rest never.

Disliked: No breakfast included, it is expensive for a hostel.

Liked: Amazing place. All the staff are really friendly and helpful. The pool and bar area are fantastic facilities really well kept and the food was amazing as well as cheap. The accomm is in the perfect location a close walk to the beach party (5-10min walk) and also to the bus stop into town. We were in a four bed dorm with air con, rooms were clean and also had a fridge. Easily one of the best places we have stayed in.

Disliked: Chloe left no negative feedback.
