Nice and clean rooms, ideal for a short stay at Ios. The people from the pension were very friendly and attentive. Ios at all is very recommendable if you plan a party trip with your friends. Many little bars and pubs in the old town.

We came here for the third time since we always had a wonderful experience. This time it was again a confirmation: The owners are always welcoming, the rooms are always clean and comfortable, the position is strategic: Quiet but at the center of any service you could need in Ios: Bus station, market, bakery, boat services and restaurants.

Avra Pension is really a top choice on Ios Island. It's located very conveniently at the harbor and in walking distance to the nice beach of Yialos (5 min) and Chora (15 min), the city center of the main island village. It's completely quiet all day and night! Avra Pension is a family-run business; everything is in top shape and...

They have the slogan 'just like home' and that is what it was. Great bedroom, lots of space, awesome bathroom and the nicest lady running it. It's at the port which is handy for ferrys, and it's a ten minute bus ride to the main party beach, or a 5 minute bus ride from the main town. We were on...

This pension is well located in the port of Ios. The owner speaks wonderful French and English, and is extremely generous and welcoming. She would ask us what we had done during the day and offered us coffee at the end of our stay. She first showed us a bedroom with two single beds, but when we asked for a...
