My 2 friends and I stayed at Cohort for 2 nights last week & were very happy with our stay. The hostel is ideally located in middle of St Ives. We shared a room with two other lovely ladies, & we had bunk beds. The bed was cosy & comfortable, the room was clean & bright. The Aussie lady on... More

Stayed here with a group of friends in the dorm room, which has 8 bunk beds. Amazing value, cool little bar/chill out area, hot showers and 2 min walk from town. Intelligent little touches like having a USB plug in your bunk, curtain and under-bed storage. Manages to do cool & classy without the fuss and extortionate price tag. Highly... More

Stayed here with 6 of my mates (we paid for an 8 bed dorm room to have it to ourselves). Perfect for a visit to St Ives - incredible price, really contemporary and chilled vibe. Loved the lounge / chill out area with small bar. The beds were really comfortable and everywhere was clean and tidy. Highly recommend.

The hostel is in a great location with parking less than 5mins walk - the hostel staff gave clear directions to it. Our room was clean, but very small and warm. We had the window open and was noisy from the road (as expected) - but beware if your a light sleeper. Wifi was good in the room. Would stay... More

Very grateful to have this hostel here as St Ives is so expensive and this place has enabled us to stay in the town. Clean. Being refurbished still. Excellent members kitchen. Good loos and showers. Friendly staff. The only downside was our room was very claustrophobic as it had no window and only a small vent into the corridor.

I scanned the net for a hostel for a stay at St Ives, Cornwall, UK and to my surprise found just one and that was the Cohort Hostel. For a set up which does not have any competition the place was brilliant. Of course the location is not exotic enough to be overlooking the sea but every exotic location in... More

This is in a lovely central location in St Ives, close to everything you need to see and do. The dorms are pretty modern looking, the beds have curtains which is a nice addition, with a light and a plug by each bed to charge your phone, and lockers (for which you need your own lock). The common bathrooms are... More

I visited Cornwall alone but the staff at the hostel were incredibly warm & friendly and so helpful with recommendations and directions around the town. There is a very cool and communal vibe to hostel. I stayed in a dorm with 5 other strangers and it felt safe and I still had my own privacy with the curtains attached to... More
