This is the cleanest and friendliest place. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the bathrooms are to die for. The staff are great and somehow it all just works and everyone gets to know each other straight away. My husband and I are in our 50's and were a little bit worried about staying in a hostel but we were delighted with the way everone just got on together.We would highly recommend Coco Mama to everyone

This was probably one of the best places I've ever stayed at. The rooms had really nice beds with feather blankets, and were generally very clean. There was a huge common room downstairs, complete with a kitchen, games, books, movies, and an old school nintendo. There were two computers available for public use for free, along with free wifi for anyone with laptops. The staff was always available and ready to help, and gave great recommendations for places to go and things to do.
I was there for a three days with some friends, and then was there by myself for the last couple days. As a female solo traveler, I felt incredibly safe, and would highly recommend it to anyone going to be in the area.

The trip to Amsterdam was complete with the stay at coco mama, a very nice hostel, having a staff who were very friendly and helpful about the places to go and see. Near by to all the attraction, the hostess provides with the map of all the cafes as well near to them..

We absolutely loved our time spent at this brand new hostel in Amsterdam!

Staff were amazing and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable, enjoyable and made us feel as if we were staying at home! As soon as we got the hostel they offered us water/tea and coffee, then sat us down and told us all about the city and then gave us a tour of the hostel and took us up to our room. It was more like a hotel rather than a hostel!

A unique feature of this hostel is the family vibe that has been created by both the staff and the way the living area and kitchen has been set up. It was very comforting and felt like a home away from home.

The room was very clean, modern and comfortable. There was a little bit of noise from the trams outside and some cold air from around the windows, however these issues were not of major concern.

This hostel is situated in a great little location, less than a minutes walk to a tram stop for easy access around the city, big supermarket around the corner, many great restaurants and cheap eats within a 10 minutes walk and gorgeous bars also within a 10 minute walk.

Over all a great hostel that i would definitely stay at again!

Ranked #19 of 221 Specialty Lodging in Amsterdam
Price Range (Based on Average Rates): $
Hotel Class:2 star — Cocomama 2*

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Cocomama offers the best of both worlds in a super central location in Amsterdam. The luxury and comfort of a hotel and the atmosphere (and budget) of a hostel. The rooms are all Holland themed and range from private doubles to 6-bed dorms (and everything in between). You might share a bathroom in some of the dorms, but those luxurious mattresses and feather duvets are everywhere. Even more importantly, at MAMA, you're not on your own. Travel stories are shared, as is the dinner table. It's a place where you'll make friends and hang out with other international trotters alike in the private garden, living room, cinema, or cook dinner in the fully-equipped kitchen (perfect to keep costs down). And if that doesn't keep you busy enough, the staff organises tons of activities, and Joop (the adorable house cat, a.k.a. man of the house), is there to get cuddled 24/7 too. ... more   less
