News & Offers from Cohort Hostel

Yet another GOLD award for the team at Cohort.

February 22nd 2019

It’s a hat trick!! A magnificent three Gold tourism awards for Cohort Hostel. The third (at this rate we daren’t say final) award is from South West Tourism. Sincere congratulations once again to everyone involved with this leading hostel.

Daniel & Lee Strickland are seen here receiving their award.


Hostel clinches two prestigious Gold Awards

February 9th 2019

Cohort Hostel, an exciting, innovative hostel in the centre of St Ives, has just won two Gold tourism awards. One for Tourism Innovation at the Cornwall Tourism Awards and one for Best Accommodation at the British Youth & Travel Awards.

Congratulations are due to the young, dynamic team behind the recent refurbishment of the Grade II listed building and it’s transformation into a contemporary, practical hostel.  Cohort Hostel was conceived by husband and wife team, Lea and Dan Strickland,  who used the experience of their time spent travelling and staying in less than ideal accommodation to build somewhere they would love to stay.  So Cohort has fast WiFi and USB sockets throughout, the strong purpose built bunks have privacy curtains, lights and storage. The communal areas have been designed to encourage people to interact.   The icing on the cake is Cohort’s enviable position in the centre of the unique town of St Ives and it’s mission to provide friendly low cost accommodation.  But don’t just take our word for it, go and try it out for yourself!


Summer in St Ives

July 19th 2018

Cohort Hostel has plenty of availability for the summer

If you’ve never visited Cornwall before now is the time; use St Ives and Cohort Hostel as your base to explore this spectacularly beautiful part of the UK.  Spectacular beaches, world famous art galleries & museums, phenomenal walking, great surf, water sports galore, beautiful shops and picturesque streets… and that’s just St Ives!

Use Cohort Hostel as your base to explore St Ives and the surrounds; we recommend 3 – 5 days to get the most out of SW Cornwall. From St Ives you can easily get to Lands End, St Michael’s Mount, the Eden Project, the Minack Theatre and even the Scilly Isles on a day trip.

St Ives itself is the home of the Tate, Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture Garden and Leach Pottery. You can do boat trips out to seal colonies, take a motorboat out on the ocean and see St Ives from the water, eat and drink to your hearts content and don’t forget the all important pasty and cream tea.

See you soon!
