"A big thank you from Bloxwich Academy for your hospitality, excellent facilities and friendliness you showed to our staff and pupils. We couldn't have asked for a more accommodating hostel who were understanding of our staff and pupils' needs at all times." (Sophie Lester, Bloxwich Academy)

Cohort sleeps up to 60 people in shared dormitories and private rooms and we welcome groups of all sizes. We have large, comfortable communal areas so there’s plenty of opportunity to hang out all together whether you’re studying or socialising.

Group use of Cohort Hostel

If you’re bringing a large group why not take over the hostel and its facilities? Group use of the hostel starts at just £650/night (Dec & Jan) for up to 54 people, this could be as little as around £12 per person per night depending on the size of the group.

See Group Use for more details.

Educational visits

St Ives is the perfect place to bring a class whether you’re studying art, history or the ocean. We welcome all educational groups and will work with you prior and during your stay to ensure you and your students have everything you need to make the most of your time in St Ives.

Go to our Educational Visits or School Art Trips page for more information.

Art & Design trips

Be inspired by the art in St Ives. Artists, students and just people who love painting flock here to sketch the views that can be spotted from every corner, visit the Tate and Barbara Hepworth Museum and soak up the town’s famous light and artistic appeal. We are perfectly placed at Cohort to help you find a painting course or plan your trip with art students.

Visit our Art Trips page for more info.

Activity groups

We work closely with the Tate, St Ives Surf School and Lands End Cycle Hire and can help you organise activities prior to your arrival. With secure storage for bikes and boards and plenty of beanbags for collapsing into at the end of the day we are the ideal place to stay if your days are packed out.

See our Activity packages page for more info.

Wedding parties

We all know weddings aren’t cheap and if you’re asking guests to come down to St Ives to celebrate then we’re sure they’d appreciate a cheaper accommodation option within easy reach of any all the local wedding venues.

Also… consider taking out the hostel for group use over your wedding days and have all your guests stay in one place – from £600/night in winter and £950/night in April & May it would be harder to find more convenient and reasonable accommodation.

See our Group Use page for more details.

Winter opening

During November, December & February the hostel is open for advance, group bookings only and for a group of 10 or more the price is just £17 per person per night.
