Let me begin by saying that hostels normally are no fun. Crammed rooms, dirty bathrooms, dilapidated kitchens, and unhelpful staff are usually the norm. At Cocomama, none of this is true. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and the beds are brand new and very comfy. The bathrooms are cleaned often. The kitchen is well-stocked, always clean, and inviting. Every single... More

You will fall in love with this hostel! From the second you walk in the staff are more like family, all the travellers hang out together in the kitchen/lounge/garden. There are always 'family' dinners & other fun stuff to bond with fellow travellers (boat cruises!) So much thought has gone into every aspect of this hostel so it makes it... More

I really enjoyed my time at Cocomama with excellent staff, rooms and common area! The staff were very friendly and organized great events for the customers for example "tight as tuesday" 3euro pasta and prosecco and the "booze cruise" for a private boat ride with other guests! I will definitely stay again next time i'm in Amsterdam! Good times! Jake

My friend who used to live in Amsterdam recommended me to stay close to Old-Zuid area since it's the most beautiful part of the city. Well he's right. I went there with two friends in the busiest April of the city, and almost all accomodation was fully booked. Yet this one didn't let us down, despite its high price. As... More

Good location, nice staff, clean, quiet,Bathroom in the room, kitchen facilities were perfect. Would definitely come back in the future. Only downside would be its fairly expensive for a hostel, only feather pillows on beds and the wifi is pretty poor (but free)

Cocomama is by far the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The staff are super friendly, we hung out a lot with Jess and Mel. Both very funny and helpful people, also Jess "looked after me" when I hurt my foot (getting ice, offering to get me food etc.) and I am very thankful for this. They both made my... More

Having booked a rather spontaneous trip to Amsterdam with 2 other people we still needed to look for somewhere to stay. After some looking we found CocoMama. A very different scene to any hostel or really any hotel I've ever stayed in. The cat Joop (pronounced Yop (like the yogurt)) is an amazing addition . The common area is better... More

This is by far one of the best hostels in Europe, is not a big hostel and is not a party hostel. Is a big house redesigned to be a hostel with a big kitchen and common room where you can cook yourself and hang arround with other travelers, watch movies, play games or eaven read some books. The rooms... More

Cocomama is a small hostel with nice atmosphere and great staff. It is located quite near Rijks/Van Gogh/Vondelpark, an area which I prefer more than the center. Amsterdam is so small that you can still easily walk your way around. The rooms are OK with very comfy beds. The showers ain't nothing special and we had some problems with warm... More
