I stayed in the Cocomama in April 2014....I have been to Amsterdam a good few times and stayed in different Hostels overall the city blah blah blah you get the idea.. Cocomama,,,honestly the Cocomama is characterised by being 'distinctly average'....average rooms, average common-room, average service, average Cat....honestly and truly there is nothing singularly wrong with this hostel is just a...

Lotje H, Owner at Cocomama, responded to this review

Dear guest, thank you for leaving us a review. Cocomama is not for everyone, like you pointed out yourself. If you can’t see what sets Cocomama apart from other hostels and rate us as an average place, this is not your cup of tea. Hopefully you will find what you are looking for in one of the many Red Light... More

I get that hostels in Amsterdam are pricey. And admittedly, this hostel has a lot of small touches that add up: the Wifi was great, my bed had its own socket to charge my phone, the lockers were spacious, the map tour was useful, there's an adorable cat, etc. There was nothing wrong with my stay. But I fail to... More

This hostel is beautiful. It's in an old town house, slightly out of the hustle and bustle of central Amsterdam. The staff are the loveliest, eager to give recommendations, and get you out and about to see what Amsterdam has to offer. There is always something on in the hostel, making it easy to meet people. Beds have their own... More

I spent 6 nights at Cocomama and was happy with the hostel - the room was good, the bathroom was always clean (which is a big deal to me) and the bed was comfortable. I liked the staff, they were all welcoming (gave me a full intro to the city on my arrival) and ready to answer my questions. Joop... More

I stayed with 3 friends for 2 nights. The first night we were suggested to go for a walk around the red light district, as we didn't want to do the arranged "sex show" activity. The second night we went with the hostel on a bar crawl. It was made out as if we got far more free drinks than... More

Not just for the young ones; for the young at heart too. My sister and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at Cocomama and can only say good things about the place. The people are incredibly friendly, both staff and other guests, love the 'honestly shelf' in the kitchen, fresh clean sheets on each of the beds... More

Cocomama is a really nice place in Amsterdam. It's set on a great location: near the tram and near nice spots of Amsterdam. Nice people, good atmosphere, sociable common room and great bedrooms: very comfortable beds (but véry small...). However, a price of 38 euros for a bed in a 6 bed dorm, is far too much, even though it's... More

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.
