“Excellent Hostel - One of the Best”
Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

I stayed in this hostel with my girlfriend in January 2013. The private room we stayed in was fantastic. It was moderately sized with good bathroom. The decor was even a very trendy shabby chic look.

The staff we very helpful and do nightly dinners/cocktail nights which gives it a very homely feel.

Our only gripe was that our room was below street level and the room was sound proofed at all making it quite noisy. Still didn't miss a wink of sleep though. Also, they have those silly water saving showers.

All in all an excellent place to stay. I would definitely recommend it.

The girls at this hostel do an absolutely amazing job, both at running a clean and efficient hostel and making all the guests feel very welcome. Every single person I met at this hostel, will remain in my memory for a long time and I had an absolutely fantastic week in Amsterdam. Since I stayed here I recommend it to everyone, particularly those travelling solo. The common room is extremely inviting and you will meet many like minded people. So good!

I stayed here for four nights in the beginning of January and had a great time. All of the staff are very friendly and make you feel at home right when you arrive. Even taking a moment to give you a map and familiarize you with the city and places you might want to visit was nice. It's def more of a quieter hostel, but I liked that. You can go out and party, but also come back and relax and just hang out with people if you want. Nice common area with a kitchen, met a lot of cool people there. Everything was very clean which I really appreciated. Danke Anna. Would def stay here again. Highly recommended

We stayed here on a weekend trip to Amsterdam and loved it!
The hostel is in a good location and the website gives easy instructions on getting there from the airport and the train station. It was only a short walk from Rembrandt Square, also from the Heineken museum and plenty places to eat and drink nearby.
We stayed in a private double room, the royal room, really nicely decorated and I loved the round bed! Which was really comfy too by the way.
The staff are friendly and approachable and there is a great atmosphere about the place.
Definitely recommend this place!

The staff were so welcoming that you instantly feel like you've just come home, common rooms always got people in to talk to and plan your day/nights activities and if you need anything the staff are always there to help. Would never have left if i could have stayed longer! the nicest staff i've ever met, even if Solveiga's wishes she could dance as well as me! if your planning to go to amsterdam i strongly recommend cocomamas!

Welcomed at the door by friendly and accommodating staff, I was shown around the place including the common kitchen and lounge area and felt immediately at home. This place is clean, friendly and reasonably priced. It is close enough to the centre to walk but there is also public transport if you don't fancy walking, but its just far enough out of the centre that you can relax in peace. If I go back to Amsterdam I will definitely try to book this place again.

This was my 2nd stay at Cocomama, and once again I thoroughly enjoyed my time here.

The hostel has a very homely feel; there's a comfortable lounge area to relax, chat to other guests, watch DVDs and play board games, with Joop the cat (the laziest cat in the world!) curled up in the corner. The honesty fridge was good as well; just €1 for a beer! Group activities were organised, making it easier to meet fellow travelers and experience Amsterdam.

The kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms were all clean, the beds were very comfortable and showers were always hot. All the staff are lovely; Lotje, Anna, Solveiga etc went out of their way to make your stay as pleasant and enjoyable as possible.

Cocomama is located away from the city centre and the RLD, yet it's still perfectly walkable, and the tram stop is literally around the corner.

I would recommend Cocomama to anyone who is planning a trip to Amsterdam, and will definitely stay here again on my next visit. Hope to see you all again soon!

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
