Nice and very friendly general atmosphere, comfortable and warm wooden bed, locker in the room, kitchen fully equipped to cook all you wish, in a very beautiful lounge environment with interesting book and games collection.

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...

Top notch hostel in Amsterdam. Fast wifi, comfy (albeit soft) mattreases. Wooden bunk beds so they're not squeaky. Great quiet part of town a short walk or tram from everywhere, close to some Street markets where you can buy anything!

The place itself was great - beautiful rooms, friendly staff. Some of the clientele weren't great though, for which I've subtracted one star. Specifically, people were coming and going in the middle of the night and being very loud. I don't know how much the hostel can realistically do about this but I figure that it's about the type of...

This hostel is great: comfortable, clean and staff were awesome. In the early hours of the morning, despite issues using my keypass to access my dorm, staff promptly came and helped me after I contacted them. Undine was helpful in resolving my booking issues. Shame I'm not staying in this hostel longer because it was very nice!

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
