“Clean, comfortable, friendly staff”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Loved my stay at cocomamas! This was my second trip to amsterdam so I was familiar with the city. I would note that its not super close to the central station, but it is about a 20mins walk (so depends on your preference). The hostel staff were really friendly, and the kitchen/lounge area made it quite easy to make friends. The rooms are quite small, but this is probably reflective of the city. Also I stayed in a 4 person dorm and the bathroom is inside the room (was good for us because we were all friends, but could be annoying if you're trying to sleep and someone is up showering). Would definitely recommend cocomama :)

The hostel is really lovely! It's small but awesome! They have a full kitchen where you can use all the equipment you want. Everybody there is really receptive and nice. I don't know if the hostel area is safe or not, but I felt fine getting to the hostel at night. There's a lot of stairs to the bedrooms, but there is not a problem because the girls from the reception always help.
Very well located. We could walk around and go to every place.

Great place to stay in Amsterdam! Close to the museums square and not so far to the center of the city, you can get there by foot in about 20 min. The staff is really nice and includes a friendly cat. There are several supermarkets in the surroundings and the kitchen has everything you may need to cook.

I stayed here for a week with my bf- we got the Forest Room and loved it! The women running the hostel were so sweet and welcoming and had a lot of tips for exploring the city. The location was a little removed from the beaten path (which was a relief after a nightmare stay for a night at the noisy, dirty and rowdy Flying Pig Hostel). We paid extra to have our laundry done and they returned it to us clean and folded which was so sweet. The room itssef was beautiful, the only downside is it seemed like the bed was actually two twin beds pushed together with a full mattress over it- I could feel the wooden ledge of the beds running down the center of our mattress which was a bit uncomfortable. Besides that it was great and I would definitely recommend it if you have a bit extra money to spare.

Dear MT1098,

Thank you for leaving us a review, we are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We have had complaints about the bed in our Forest room before, so we have replaced this bed a few months ago with a brand new custom built bed.
We hope you're well and to see you back in Amsterdam again soon!

Warm regards,

Lotje

The title says it all. The best location, the best people, the best atmosphere, the best cat, the best beds...just.. THE BEST.

The kitchen facilities are actually functional and useful - 2 stoves, an oven, microwave, big fridge, toaster, bread box, pantry, oil for cooking as well as free rice/pasta if you're starving and have the munchies.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, comfy and cozy. There is no 'bad room' in this place.

I stayed at Cocomama for one week of fun and friend making bliss. The hostel ha a very homely feel and the staff were both friendly and helpful. Te location was a perfect distance out of te hustle and bustle that comes with tourists coming to Amsterdam to frequent the red light district and coffee shops by was still close enough if you felt like doing that too :) would definitely recommend and stay here again!

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
