Cohort is a newly renovated hostel. Housed in old Wesleyan Chapel Schoolrooms it has spectacular features; this along with contemporary accommodation facilities, superfast WiFi and unique indoor and outdoor social spaces make it the perfect place to stay while you explore South West Cornwall.

We have an in-house bar, lounge, courtyard, movie/tv room and both private rooms and shared dorm accommodation. Our helpful staff will be delighted to share with you all the delights South West Cornwall and St Ives have to offer.

Our kitchen area is fully equipped with everything you might need to make a quick snack, packed lunch or evening meal and we are situated right next to a small supermarket which is open 7am-11pm 7 days a week.

We work closely with St Ives Surf School and would be delighted to help you organise an activity during your stay - they offer everything from surfing to kayaking to stand-up-paddleboarding and can cater from beginnners to pros! Our helpful staff can also assist you in planning a days walking (or half day) or cycling, or just point you to the nearest beach and tell you where to buy suntan cream.

St Ives is everyone's ideal destination whether you're looking for culture, beaches, activities, spas or just want to wander the cobbled back streets of this beautiful town. With our onsite bar you can gather in the relaxed lounge (or courtyard) at the end of the day and catch up with new friends.

Directions

From the train or bus station by foot:
(5 minutes) Follow the main road into St Ives town centre and keep following it as it turns sharply to the right and goes downhill. When you reach the Nat West bank on the corner of Gabriel Street turn left. Walk past the library and then the Co-Op supermarket (on your right) to find Cohort Hostel on your right hand side.

From the airport by car:
(50 minutes) Follow directions out of the airport to the A39 which will take you via the A3059. From there follow signs to the A30 (signposted Redruth / Truro). Continue along the A30 until you come to the A3074 which is the St Ives turn-off. Follow the A3074 into St Ives.

When you come to the St Ives Harbour Hotel & Spa either turn right into the centre of town or follow the road round to the large public car park at the top of the town (Trenwith Leisure Centre Car Park / 1000 spaces). The postcode (for SatNavs) for this car park is TR26 1DD. Once you have parked follow the footpath signs to the town centre and Cohort is just opposite where you come out onto the main road in town.

If you have driven into town follow the road as it turns right sharply downhill and take the second left into Gabriel Street (there is a library on one corner and a NatWest Bank on the other). Cohort is just past the Co-Op Supermarket on your right hand side.

There is no parking outside but if you go past the hostel there is a public car park 50 yards up on your right hand side or follow the road to a mini-roundabout where you should turn left and come to Park Avenue car park. The postcode (for SatNavs) for this car park is TR26 1QE.

Located Near

Cohort is located in the centre of St Ives and is just a 5-8 minute walk to both the bus station and train station and situated near to three public car parks. We're minutes from over 40 bars, cafes and restaurants and 5 minutes from St Ives' four amazing beaches and the South West coastal path.

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