Generally excellent. Good value central location, good facilities, helpful staff. My only complaint and I dont know what could be done about this, was the seagulls making a hell of a din at 3-4 in the morning, up on the roof. Watch also that your keys and coins dont slip between the big gaps in the floorboards in some of... More

Great location in St. Ives. Little bit noisy with traffic on road but near shops and cafes. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room and bed comfortable with secure locker underneath, big enough for medium backpack.

We were a group of 5 and we were all soo happy with out short holiday in St.Ives. This was also very much because of the hostel. The staff was very nice, the rooms were really good and we just felt very comfortable there! If you go to St. Ives, go there!

Spotless and friendly -- with free coffee -- couldn't ask for anything more from a hostel (and I don't typically target hostels in my travels anymore but we had to accommodate a group of 6). Cohort was great value, I would absolutely stay there again and recommend to others.

Thanks for your review. We're super chuffed that your group enjoyed staying with us, the nice thing about a group that size is that you get an entire room to yourselves. Maybe see you again sometime. More

It was the cheapest accommodation I found in St Ives (cheaper than camping, even), but it was really great! Hostel was clean, beds were probably the best hostel bed I've ever stayed in - with a curtain, light, plug, and USB plug for each bed. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Plus, they have a social hour where you can... More

Staying in the hostel made my summer!! It's in the best location, centre of a beautiful town with lots of character surrounded by incredible beaches. All the main shops and restaurants are just round the corner and there's a little cinema opposite. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, every day I came in they where there with a smile... More

Cohort is lovely - I felt comfortable as soon as I stepped inside. Danny, Lee and all the young staff were warm, friendly, always ready for a chat, and very helpful with great advice. Loved the bed I got - I had excellent sleep and woke up refreshed every morning without an alarm. I really appreciated the little details like... More

I was walking the south west coast path with my son. We stayed in a variety of accommodation and camped too. Cohort was the best hostel we stayed in. Clean m, comfortable, welcoming. Lovely outdoor space and kitchen. Good self catering facilities.
