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.

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...

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...

A fabulous hostel in a fabulous resort. Clean, tidy, value for money accommodation. Cracking little pod rooms, with individual charging points , lights and curtains at each bunk. Decent showeres and toilets. Town centre location, 5 mins from the train station

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...

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.

The hostel was in a great location & great for solo travellers. I was disappointed with the single room as there were no windows to open so it felt Claustraphobia. The kitchen was great but the open yard area was not great. There was clearly a problem with pigeons which needs to be addressed and the area seemed dirty &...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, the private rooms are small and the only window is into the corridor so it's hard to get lots of light in there; the dorm rooms are much lighter and you can open the windows but appreciate that dorm rooms are not for everyone. We're also sorry that the courtyard...
