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

The renovations are excellent, creating a fresh and contemporary feel to this interesting old building with many of its original features. 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

Apparently this hostel is under new management within the last few months, and it really shows! The facilities are new and everything's clean: the bathrooms are sparkly new and everything works well and is clean. The dorms are great too - some are single-sex and some mixed, each bed has curtains and its own socket and designated locker for your... More

I'm here at the moment with a friend and we both enjoy it here. The rooms are nice and clean, the bath room & kitchen also! The stuff is very friendly and helpful. The hole atmosphere is wondeful! Moreover it is really not really far from St.Ives Harbor. Really it is the money worth it!

The hostel has new owners and has been very recently renovated, I went to stay as a solo traveller for 4 nights. I picked Cohort for its great location and value for money. It's bang smack in the centre of St Ives, opposite the cinema, a shop and cafe (if you fancy a cooked breakfast). The Co-Op is next door,... More
