Friendly staff one of the best hostels I've been to. The girls from Belfast and Scottland were very welcoming and chatty. Took the red light district tour with Moo and it was well worth it! As I was a woman traveling alone it was great to take the tour with a group. The hostel is set up where you can...

Very nice hostel with a friendly staff. Stayed in the 6 bed room and have no complaints, each bed has a curtain so it's very private. Lockers are huge. Read here that the bathroom had a "funky smell" and that's true, but it's ok.

Decided on a last minute trip to Amsterdam and booked at Cocomama for 4 days. I cannot believe how amazing it was! Super friendly and helpful staff, especially the opening tour. Beds were the perfect length for a tall person such as myself. Best part was the common room in the basement (with a backyard) that felt more like a...

Good Hostel, very friendly & helpful staff, clean. I stayed in a private room, it was in the basement, beside the common room. There was some noise from street but nothing that stopped me from sleeping. They did have ear plugs in the room if needed. But no noise from common room. Just down from lots of tram stops so...

This hostel is perfect - - the staff is friendly, the beds are cozy, and the quirky design is so cool! What made Cocomama so great was the fact that the staff always went above and beyond to make us feel at home. I would recommend it to all and I personally can't wait to be back soon!

The location is very convenient, right across the bus and tramstop that will take you to and from Amsterdam central station. Leidseplein is a short ride away or a leisurely stroll, this is where a lot of the action is!! The hostel itself is a beautiful building with lots of history, also very homely and I felt very much at...

This was my very first ever hostel experience, I loved every bit about it. I wish I stayed here for my whole Amsterdam trip. Excellent location and is literally so close to everything. It is very solo traveller friendly due to the hostel being small and cosy. The kitchen is very clean and their cat Joop is extremely cute and...

This review could have been very positive, as the hotel is located in a nice area and also the interior is cozy. BUT the room was very cold (we travelled in November) and the heater did not work. We informed the stuff, but they just told us, that they would know about this issue... But nothing changed during our stay...

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
