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

We stayed at Cocomamas for one week. What I really enjoyed was the great hospitality from the staff (in particular Jess and Melanie). Although the place was great and kept clean at all times, I'd have to say that our stay wouldn't have been as great if it wasn't for Jess and Mel! Cheers guys :)

This hostel is great. Nice big bunk beds, friendly staff who greet you at the door, an inviting common room with board games, an old school nintendo, a selection of movies and some comfy places to sit, a nice garden to hang out and eat in, a good kitchen, an honesty bar filled with beer, and it seems to attract...

I first stayed there early last year and found the location, staff and facilities excellent. Over the two years I have met many fellow travellers some who I have now met in other hostels around the world! I have also become friends with some of the staff members who I can't wait to meet in two weeks! This place is... More

We just got back from a 4 nights stay in Amsterdam. This hostel is pretty good, although the price feels a bit high. I would look for another option, when in a budget trip. The bedroom is small, but it fits a couple without issues. It could be a bit more comfortable. We stayed in the street level, at 1st... More

Lovely hostel located in de piip. We stayed in the farm room, lovely spacious bathroom, good shower, enormous bed and really nice but functional room. Great touches like wifi, hair dryers and towels set this place above the rest. I loved having the use of the kitchen And the cat is great too. The service we received was excellent. Will... More
