September 3rd 2020

Winter 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 the coming winter months. 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.
