Property Description

Cohort is a truly epic hostel located in the centre of St Ives. Housed in an old Wesleyan Chapel and schoolrooms it has spectacular features along with contemporary accommodation facilities, superfast WiFi and unique indoor and outdoor social spaces.

St Ives is the jewel in Cornwall's crown and consistently rated the most picturesque town in the county; with 5 stunning, sandy beaches and ocean on 3 sides of the town, you couldn't pick a more spectacular place to base yourself while you explore West Cornwall.

Cohort is supremely central - just minutes from over 50 bars, cafes and restaurants and 5 minutes from St Ives' breathtaking beaches and the South West coastal path. It is a 5 minute walk to the bus and train station, both of which have excellent transport links to London and other major cities in the South, Newquay and the more remote parts of Cornwall. It's also situated very near to 3 public car parks.

It is a 5 minute walk to the Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden, 10 minutes to Tate St Ives, St Ives School of Painting and the Surf School and 15 minutes to the Bernard Leach Pottery Museum.

    We had no windows or any sort of ventilation in our room so it was VERY hot and stuffy during the night (even though it’s only beginning of May so the air outside was great). The kitchen closes at 10pm so you cannot access any of your food after that. Other than that it was all great :)

    Fabulous

    29 Jul 2022
    Cohort hostel is a nice place to stay in St Ives. The staff is really helpful and Adriana in particular is really very sweet. The kitchen has all the necessary utensils & appliances. The common room with high ceiling is good to hang out & relax. It's a homely place with no late night parties or meet and greets, kitchen closes at 10 & common area by 11. Bathrooms only have hot showers which might be uncomfortable for some people in summers. Rooms facing a local pub do get outside noise sometimes.

    Another great stay at the cohort hostel. Friendly staff, free coffee and plugs in the beds. The only suggestion I would make is for there to be a cover over the bike rack for if it rains.

    I wish the showers lasted a bit longer. You have to press the knob again every 10 seconds. Everything else was great.
