“Best place to stay!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I stayed here for 8 nights and I absolutely loved it! The staff are so friendly and really make you feel welcome. The kitchen is great with free spices and what not, and the beds and so sturdy and so so comfy. I loved that the location isn't in the thick of it all (you can walk anywhere in Amsterdam). It was so relaxing and so homely, also really really great for meeting other other travellers!

The staff made me feel so welcome and making friends in the common room/kitchen was a breeze - it's a space conducive to a good time for sure with a NES. The rooms were comfortable and colorful just mind the stairs when you're wasted. To top it all off they have a friendly cat called joop who's good if you need a friend. Favorite place in Amsterdam. 10/10 will stay again. Cheers, Sam.

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...

Great social atmosphere without being too over the top party place
Lots to do organised with hostel and great location.

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!

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
