“Favourite by far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

I stayed at Cocomama with my partner for 4 nights in Feb. We had a brilliant time from start to finish. The hostel has a very cosy, personal feeling from all the guests and especially the staff. The common area made it very easy to meet other travellers and the staff organise activities for every night. It felt more like a home than it did a hostel. The rooms are a little tight but it wasn't a problem for us at all. It's a short walk or a quick tram ride to the main square. So if you don't mind being just out of dam square then this is the place for you!

We will definitely be back! Thank you Cocomama!!

The atmosphere is amazing. Very friendly staff and activities every night. The common area is always full of people who are easy going and talkative. I had a fantastic stay there. Not to mention it is very clean! And the beds are easily the most comfortable I've slept in at a hostel- especially the pillows!

Why would you stay anywhere else? I loved this place - the staff go above and beyond to be helpful and make everyone feel incredibly welcome, there's a great lounge room for when the weather's no good, you can rent a bike for five euros, the other guests staying there were lovely, there's a social event every night - whether it's a pub crawl or pasta night - so you're never short of things to do. One warning: it's so good that no other hostel will ever feel good enough again. Stay here and you'll wish you never had to carry on.

I was just at Cocomama last week, at the end of my 6 week Euro trip and it was easily the best hostel I stayed in. Franchise hostels get the job done, but Cocomama was different. The atmosphere is the thing that makes it a class above. It's just so friendly. They organise awesome events each night, like pub crawls, dinner nights, wine nights and nights out.
I just had the best time there and felt comfortable and safe, whilst meeting so many people.
The staff were so lovely and amazing. They were always around to talk as well if no one else was.
You must stay here if you're in Amsterdam.

Cocomama was an absolute delight to visit, the staff are all lovely, and the hostel itself lovely. I stayed in the well equipped Brothel room (6 bed dorm), which had decent size lockers, and a great ensuite- but you'd be crazy to spend any time there when they offer such an amazing common room. Really well equipped with fridge for storing food, as well as an honesty bar, stove with free pasta on offer, a couple of 6 seater tables and a great comfy lounge and ipod dock for music. It was tempting to just stay in rather than leave!

Each night they offer a different activity I'd recommend everyone gets involved with, I was a solo traveller and met some wonderful people.

Couldn't recommend Cocomama enough!

By far the best place in town… If you're looking for a great hostel.. walkable from the city centre nice atmosphere and great staff Coco Mama is the place to be.

Always welcomed by a smile from the friendly staff a stay there is a absolute treat when visiting Amsterdam. All the rooms have different Holland related themes and are super clean. The living room has a fully equipped kitchen and homey vibe… books.. dvd's.. video games and even a garden.. I was trying to look for something that wasn't good but just couldn't find anything to complain about… Highly recommend a stay at Coco Mama.

OH and the house cat Joop is the cutest thing ever!

Great location (just at the perfect distance to the tumult of the center of the city, but still not too far away, just enough to be away from all the noise), cosy atmosphere, very friendly staff. Great for solo travellers! This was my first time travelling by myself and the idea of it was very formidable-all my worries were gone when I arrived at the hostel; it really is a place that makes one feel at home. Furthermore, there's a very cute cat in the house that just adds to the homely feel.

Definitely recommended, definitely a place I would stay again the next time I'm in Amsterdam.
