Enjoy the empty beaches, spectacular coastline, fresh air and sunlight in stunning St Ives.

September 3rd 2020

Autumn is an amazing time of year to be in St Ives. The crowds have dispersed and the beaches are empty. Amazing for wild swimming, walking, indulging in world famous art, shopping and eating.

St Ives really does have something for everyone and in a world where we could all do with a recharge this is most definitely the place to do it. Get on top of your mental health and breathe the Atlantic Ocean in deep.

We have a good amount of availability in private rooms only for late September / October including half term. Cohort Hostel is an award winning hostel with the all-important Covid Secure ‘We’re Good To Go’ accreditation. Trust us to keep you safe while you enjoy this beautiful part of the world.


We’re Good to Go and ready to greet you!

July 3rd 2020

Here at Cohort we have been busy planning our re-opening. We’re opening rooms for private occupancy with each room having it’s only shower within the shower blocks. Rooms are available for 1-6 occupancy of people adhering to govt guidelines.

The kitchen is currently closed but we are working hard to open it as soon as we can. Our reception will be open with distancing measures in place. Sorry no cash, no laundrette or drying room.  There will be a limit to how many can use the lounge at any one time.  Only 2 people (or one bubble) allowed in the shower block at any one time.  There’s lots more information on Cohort’s website.
