Very friendly and helpful staff, always somebody around for information or a chat. Central location - perfect for walking (e.g. the Coast Path), but also close to public transport, numerous restaurants, shops, points of interest. Thoughtfully arranged mixed gender dorms, curtains around beds give extra privacy. Clean, very comfortable bed. Nice communal spaces. Only issues: no dry room (courtyard with roof can be used instead) and showers weren't great. Not a lot of hot water on the first day, showers only run for 10s at a time and no shower handle (water comes from above so hard not to get hair wet if you don't want to). Good value, friendly atmosphere and definitely recommend to all sorts of travellers.

Thanks for your detailed review Sabrina, much appreciated. Just so future guests' know... we do have a dry room (sorry you didn't find it). It's at the back of the dining room by the washing machine.

Can't be happier with our choice to stay at the Cohort hostel. Everybody is amazingly friendly, the place is very clean and the location is perfect for roaming around the town.

The hostel has great location, so close to all the restaurants and main beaches. It was my first stay in a hostel and liked that the host put the girls in one room. There's free tea in the morning for guests which was a lovely touch. Nice clean comfortable beds with privacy curtains The staff was always there to help with any queries. And THANK YOU SO MUCH for SUP recommendation, I had time of my life. Would come back again.

Me and my sis stayed at the hostel during peak period. We have to change the room 3 times for 3 nights. Shower room was very small and quite lack of water. Overall was great. The last night we got a bit issues but the hostel solved it nicely. Lovely location, lovely town :) thanks Cohort :)
