The staff were really friendly and helpful as to places to visit as well as activities to engage in around St Ives. There is a nice cozy common room with a TV. Also the hostel is nicely decorated with bright colours.

Great place whether your staying with friends, family or by yourself either visiting, surfing or just chilling. From the room to the kitchen, toilets and chilling area all clean & tidy. Nice staff. Miss C will go extra mile and likes chocolates. Definitely will be returning.

Great location in the heart of beautiful Sty Ives. Travelling solo and the staff and guests were incredibly friendly. Gave loads of great tips re where to go and things to see. The facilities were first class, very clean and comfortable with everything you need! Best accommodation I stayed in during a tour of the Cornwall coast. Thanks guys :)

Exceptionally friendly staff and an amazing central location just 5min walk to the beaches in St. Ives! It was a weekend getaway for us and the staff guided us to the best sites around Cornwall region.

The Cohort Hostel is modern, clean, and a sociable environment, located within easy walking distance of the main town. During the stay the staff were friendly, helpful, and had great knowledge of the local area.
