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.

This was by far the best hostel I've been to! Great rooms (very comfortable beds, with curtains for privacy and your own plug), nice staff, very clean rooms and first of all: phenomenal location! I would definitely recommend it!

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.

Overall, the Hostel was great. However, the back court yard could do with a face-lift and an elevator could be put to good use for the older guest, as having to drag one's suitcase up all those stairs was a bit much. Staff were excellent and very obliging and helpfu.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write us a review. There's not much room for an elevator at Cohort I'm afraid - being a Grade II listed building we have to adhere to pretty strict regulations around what we do - however next time we'll be sure to run down and give you a hand: We appreciate your...

Reviewed 13 September 2016

It's a budget hostel, not a luxury hotel, but that being said the facilities are excellent and well managed. It was a bit noisy at night (not surprising given the average age of the guests), but nonetheless a good place to stay if you are comfortable with instant community!
