Liked: Good location, near the beach. Pick up from port. Helpful and friendly staff. Decent food available at the hostel. Mini fridge in room was great so we could have cold drinks on hot days! Right next to several mini markets.

Disliked: No wifi in room, just near reception/pool area -it was pretty slow in the evenings. Bathrooms/shower could have done with a bit more of a clean.

Liked: The staff and atmosphere really made this place the best hostel I've stayed in. George is probably the nicest and most helpful person you'll meet. Mike (aka Denny) and his famous strawberry daiquiris make this place the best pool hangout spot and pre drinking place on the island. When I go back to Ios, I will definitely go back to purple pigs and will recommend to all travellers

Disliked: It is a bit off town, but the bus stop is so close that it doesn't matter!

Liked: The fact that it was located near the beach but also had a pool

Disliked: Bathrooms weren't very nice, our rooms aircon turned off every time someone walked out onto the balcony (i.e. the doors were opened) but our friends room did not have this problem
