The staff was very friendly, and if you don't mind walking then this is a great place outside of where all the action is going on in Amsterdam. I walked everywhere, and if the weather is nice then it is no problem. The rooms are much smaller than the average hostel, but the bathrooms are much cleaner than the average... More

I stayed at this hostel back in June 2011 for my first ever trip to Amsterdam. I was not disappointed. The staff are extremely friendly, and the feeling is very homey. The dining area downstairs provided some basics for people to use while making their breakfasts or dinners. There are areas for dining and also for hanging out. The backyard... More

A great staff and homey downstairs lounge and kitchen make for a great place to meet people and spearhead exploration of Amsterdam. Awesome location next to the best street market in Amsterdam. Overall an outstanding place to stay while visiting Amsterdam.

Cocomama was hands down one of my best hostel experiences ever. The staff are friendly, helpful, and easygoing. There's something going on every night and you'll definitely meet new people either at the lovely common area downstairs or by going for hostel events (like pub crawl). I travelled solo so this point was great. If you can handle dutch bikes... More

The hostel is a little outside the city center, but the city center is easily accessible by tram or subway. The guests at the hostel seemed to be younger (mostly people in their 20's). The staff were really nice and helpful. I would highly recommend renting a bike from the hostel because it's cheaper to rent one at the hostel... More

I don't know what was going on in Amsterdam when we stayed but the hotel prices were through the roof! We weren't staying on a weekend either... This was recommended by a friend and somehow they got a really good deal compared to ours. So besides the price, the private room we had was on the bottom floor and smelled... More

This was my first hostel experience and (like others have said) they have set the bar pretty high! From Amsterdam central, the hostel was very easy to find. Once there, I was welcomed with a smile and given plenty of info about where to go, what to do and what not to do as well. Within walking distance to the... More

Cannot recommend Cocomama enough. We stayed at hostels all over europe and Cocomama was definitely the best. The team there are amazing and create such a good family feel. In most hostels, i tend to avoid the communal areas but at Cocomama we were in the communal living area more than we were in our private room (which was gorgeous).... More

Every Staff member at Cocomama was welcoming and very professional. It was my first Hostel Experience, I normally stay at full service hotels. When I checked in they gave me history of the establishment, a map, and walked me through the various points of interest. The room slept 6 with a bathroom, all of the guest were friendly, fun, respectful.... More
