“Outstanding hostel with amazing staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Stayed here for 6 days. Had an amazing stay, this is a really high standard hostel. Probably the best I've stayed in. Great for solo travellers, I met several great people staying there. The staff are what makes this place though - they're so helpful and really go above and beyond to ensure you have everything you need. Britt especially was awesome and made me feel very welcome. Overall an awesome hostel. Only downfall is it is slightly out of the main part of Amsterdam but this was actually kind of nice if you use a bike. It was right by Albery Cuyp market which was awesome!

Cocomama was by far the best hostel i've stayed during my eurotrip!! The bed is supercomfortable, the environment is very cool (personalized rooms), the staff is AWESOME, and the location is also good.

I had a great time there, got to know everyone at the common area and just felt home! Whenever i visit Amsterdam again, there is no doubt: COCOMAMA AGAIN!

Cocomama is a great find in Amsterdam. It was a great place to meet other solo travelers (like me). The group was awesome, and it's a great place to make fast friends. The location was perfect. Quiet enough to get some rest, and nothing is too far for walking. Staff was great, too. They went out with the guests, and leaving bags at the hostel for a late train/flight is no big deal.

Room Tip: Book early. They fill up quickly, and most people there were trying to add on days once they saw the...

The staff are great, the beds super, the bathrooms mint, the kitchen lounge so cosy
Great social atmosphere without being too over the top party place
Lots to do organised with hostel and great location.
Highly recommend it
Breakfast would be the only thing for the price i think should be included

Stayed here for four nights in a four person room. Friendly staff and patrons all around. Great tours and activities, great for if you're travelling alone. Clean, secure and fun, plus a great common area/yard. Highly recommended!

Not only is cocomama's by far the best hostel in Amsterdam, it is the best hostel in the world. I recently stayed there with my friend for 4 nights and it was everything it was hyped up to be. The staff were lovely and upon arrival, gave us a personal tour and history of the building. The common area was relaxed, clean, and a perfect space for meeting up before a pub crawl or just to play dress up (yes that's what's in the chest). Everything about our stay was perfect from the 5 euro bike rentals to the lazy hostel cat. We can't wait to be back in Amsterdam and back at our favourite hostel!

Room Tip: get the royal room! its the best! :)

We stayed for 4 nights at Cocomama and we enjoyed our stay at the boutique hostel. Here is my opinion on pro & cons..

Pros:
1) Staff was friendly & helpful who provided us with map of city and information on places to visit in city
2) Access to central Amsterdam was easy as there a tram stop just steps away from hostel. The ride is approx. 5-10 mins to central area.
3) Nice quiet location away from busy central area
4) Albert Cuypmarkt, Heineken museum, Van gogh museum within walking distance
5) free pasta & spices, drinks available for purchase in communal kitchen and fridge available to store your food
6) no curfew so can you come & go as you wish

Cons:
1) No elevator available in case your room is on top floor and you luggages to carry
2) bed was too soft (our personal preference)
3) price is a little high for double private ensuite

Overall the atmosphere of hostel was very nice and I would go back again!
