Guess what? Ios is also named and spelled Ios Island - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.

Ios, the party capital of the Greek Isles, is a not-to-be missed destination for any hostel backpacker who likes to party at night and relax on a beautiful beach by day. Most of the action on Ios is centralised around the main town of Chora, which is also where the ferry dock is -- from here you can catch a bus or taxi to the outlying towns like Mylopotas Beach. There are popular hostels in both areas. Ios is easily accessible from any island in the Greek Isles by Ferry and is only a 5hr fast ferry ride from Athens. Although Ios is known for its party reputation, you can also find a range of other activities, including visiting the many secluded bays and beaches around the island to enjoying a range of different water sports from Paddle Boarding to clinging on for dear life on the back of a speedboat.

Most Ios hostels are either located in Chora, the main town, or Mylopotas Beach, a short bus ride away. Chora is the perfect place to stay if you really want to have easy access to all the bars in the main town, of which there are many. If you want to stay right across from the beach at a budget price, but still have access to great bars by bus/taxi or a thirty-minute walk, then Mylopotas Beach would be the place to stay. The hostels in Mylopotas Beach are also more like resorts, so not only do they offer budget rooms, but they also have more expensive private rooms as well as pools, bars, and restaurants, so for those lazy nights when you want to party but don't want to head into town, you don't have to go far. Ios is primarily a summer destination, though, so you will find most accommodation is closed outside of the summer months.

Ios is one of the friendliest islands I have ever visited. I can understand why people go back year after year. The Orange Bar is so good, and Fiesta a restaurant which cooks such lovely food at a great price, I think can't be beaten. No wonder the locals call us the repeat offenders, as once you go you keep going back.


I agree that Ios is a fantastic party town! Be aware of drink spikings though as it is easy to get too comfortable here and let your guard down. Make sure you have one of the 'kebabs' from the place next to the Red Bull Bar in the main square.


This place has to be one of the best party islands in the world. Your time here will be spent partying at the clubs all night and recovering at the beach or pool by day. Be carefull though, drinking the spirits in the clubs ain't allways what the labels say on the bottles. Stick to bottled beer.


I have been three times in Ios, it is sooooo great! Stay the longest time in Ios, you will love the nightlife! Nobody is so dressed up, you can wear your sandals in the clubs and the prices are ok.
