Great value for money! Clean rooms with bunk beds, great for groups of 5-6 friends! Shared bathrooms - clean, only three showers in the ladies though! The staff is really friendly and helpful. The chill out room is really cool and the location is perfect, right in the centre of St Ives, walking distance to all restaurants, pubs, bars, harbour... More

A pleasent and homely hostel. Excellent location. The staff were friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The kitchen is well equipped. We slept in the dorms, and although it was a shared room, we had sufficient privacy. We stayed at the peak of the season; nevertheless, the hostel didn't feel crowded. Very good value for price.

Situated in a wonderful 19th century school the refurbished rooms are well organised with storage lockers, sockets and plenty of room. Its very well priced and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I recommend the £3.50 breakfasts you can get from the café across the... More

There is no parking, but this is the only downside for this great newly renovated hostel right in the heart of St Ives. There is a great lounge area, large kitchen, and courtyard for drying surfing gear or hanging out. A cool place to stay.

Not really a hostel sort of a girl I approached this experience with some trepidation. Once I saw the central location I was already willing to forgive the cohort for many sins but there was no need. The place is clean and welcoming. The communal sleeping areas gave each person a spacious enough bunk with privacy curtains. The whole hostel... More

The Cohort Hostel is genuinely the best hostel I have ever been to. I don’t' know the place from previous years, but from what I have heard it was always full of vibe. And this is what we experienced now. Many different people were staying there, doing various things, like hiking, windsurfing, movie-making, just chilling and sightseeing. Common room and... More

Very comfortable lovely social spaces and the team have a wealth of local knowledge and are really helpful and welcoming. Went there on a school trip and look forward to going back without the entourage. Such a gem in... More

We had visited this hostel's previous reincarnation for the past 12 years with groups of Art students, but this year blew us away! The owners, Lee and Dan, have done an amazing job of breathing life new life into this hostel; it is clean and airy with a contemporary design. And the manager, Caroline, couldn't be more helpful. It was... More
