The Hostelz.com Review

Cohort Hostel St Ives is bright and modern with plenty of well-planned common spaces. It seems to be a couple of old houses renovated into a single complex, so it can feel a bit maze-like going up and down stairs to get to the kitchen, but it makes sense pretty quickly.

The Location

The hostel is a short walk from the St. Ives train station, although there's a steep hill in there. It's clearly signposted on a main street and should be quite easy to find.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The bedrooms are nice enough, with a metal locker (with key) provided for each bed, and a window in each room. Each room has a swipe-card lock on the door, and if the door is left open it starts a high-pitched beep -- unfortunately since the doors doesn't swing closed hard enough to lock, high-pitched beeps are regularly going off in the evening. The showers has plenty of hooks but ends up with the whole cubicle quite damp, so it's a bit of a struggle to dress in there. The bathrooms are nice and clean, but the soap dispensers are empty late at night and there are no hand towels, so make sure to have yours handy.

Common Spaces

The common areas of this hostel are the highlight, from the amazing undersea mural down the staircase to the little reading niche in the loft above the lounge. The kitchen is large, clean, and well stocked (but closed at night), and the courtyard outside it is lovely if it isn't raining. There's Wi-Fi available and there's a bar and a book exchange in the lounge. Staff will print off paperwork for you on request; provide luggage storage available to keep bags when you check out; and are happy to help you organise activities or suggest things to do in the area, like a Saturday night beer festival. There's space in the courtyard to clean off wetsuits and surfboards too.

Summary

Check-in closes at 10 p.m., but they are willing to stay open a little later if arranged ahead of time. However, if someone does close the front door, you'll need to phone to alert the desk that you've arrived, as there is no doorbell, and reception is at the back a long way from the front door. It's a bit of a noisy, old building in general, with the sound of floorboards squeaking and doors closing clearly audible in bed, especially if there's a party crowd arriving back from a night out, but the facilities and quality of the hostel make up for that overall.
