Had a nice time, meet very nice travelers . Matt who works there, was very helpful to us. Thank for making our stay so memorable.
Great small hostel. Good location as you can get to everything worth seeing. Staff are Super friendly and usually set you up with a map with their favorite spots during check in. The free shelf in the kitchen is a score when you're stoned, hungry, and forget to get food. Would and will stay again
Its pricey but it was a great stay! The location is very near to museumplein where Rijksmuseum, van gogh and stedejikl located. Very unique hostel. Bed are comfy. Staff are very nice, they gave us a lots of tips and explain the map very well. The common is the gem of the hostel, it has everything! From books to games, even a classic nintendo. We played mario for an hour while waiting to check in. The kitchen has everything. They even has free rice and Pasta for us to cook. Overall great
Good Kitchen and common area. not a luxurious bed but it's OK. A little bit far from city center, but is close to the museum, if this do appeal to you. Staffs are nice.
I liked this hostel, chose a mixed room but both nights was put with all girls. The bathroom was new and clean and the bed was quite comfortable. Had a pretty good nights sleep here both nights. People are very friendly at this hostel, there is a group atmosphere. The cat doesn't bother anyone he just sleeps in the main room, petting him really is soothing. location is a little far but its close to Heineken tour and the I am amsterdam sign. The staff were very nice too!
Champagne on arrival. Yes. Great staff and awesome chill out area. People are friendly and location is just outside of the center and very easy to walk to many places. Bunk beds are well designed for privacy and comfort.
Fantastic experience at this hostel. So easy to meet people in the downstairs common room. Everyone was very young and like-minded. The staff were so accommodating; you could tell they actually wanted to be there. Would definitely recommend and stay at again.
I can't recommend staying at Cocomama enough. The location near De Pijp is perfect, away from the touristy locations & more where the locals are. The hostel itself is modern & was always very clean, with a well equipped kitchen/common-type room to spend time in. Being smaller in size, it felt more like a share house than a hostel, which is great if you want to have proper conversations & actually meet people. It's very welcoming & warm, & a perfect place to stay as a solo-traveller :~)
The hostel was one of the cleanest hostels I've ever stayed at. The location is good, only a few blocks from a market and about a 30 minute walk to Dam Square. The only factor that concerned me was no secure luggage storage. Furthermore, you have to either bring your own lock or purchase a lock at the hostel in order to take advantage of the lockers in the rooms. Most places will provide a lock for a deposit, which is returned to you when you hand in the lock.
Awesome hostel in an amazing location run by the best locals! Everything about this place was quality from the living area downstairs to the daily events planned for the guests. This was by far our favorite hostel to stay at during our trip.
I always stay here when visiting Amsterdam. That is if I can get a booking. It's incredibly popular. Great location just a few meters from a tram stop and absolutely walkable to the city and all the tourist attractions. Staff are awesome and the hostel cat is friendly too.

The staff was super friendly and accommodating. Took the time to sit down with every new traveler and go over the map and make recommendations. The place was very clean and there were scheduled events to do each night. The location is far enough away from the Red Light District that it's comfortable and cozy, but easy to access the city action. I will definitely stay here again
Nice Hostel, well located. The rooms are a bit narrow but the bunkers were alright. In my opinion, expensive. Shared rooms should never be over 30eur.
Over all the place was really comfortable and very VERY clean. Stocked kitchen and free rice, pasta, and spices was awesome to take advantage of. Loud on street side, esp since they tell ppl to smoke out front. Worth every penny though. I didn't love Amsterdam and the atmosphere here allowed me to chill out and make myself at home while I made other plans.
What an awesome stay at Cocomamas. The feedback from other travelers who had stayed elsewhere in Amsterdam or due to not booking longer were forced to move elsewhere, they all felt the same way. Coco was definitely a home away from home filled with great and friendly people and a well situated part of Amsterdam. This site is walking distance to all locations and provides facilities to suite all requirements. The hosts and Cat were all amazing and I can't recommend this place enough.

Great hostel with a very good vibe and a real personal touch - really makes the difference when you stay somewhere. Good activities and very sharable and pleasant facilities
This was really a strange hostel .. Very particular .. It was like a small house who rent their rooms .. But very effective if you want know travelers .. The staff was never there if you needed them i came late night and they didn tell me my room number .. There was list eith my name and room name was bike and taken me 30 mints to find my room went to room by room trying my card ..
Staff was very friendly and helpful, we mostly saw Matt and Lienne and they were very kind and nice. In this hostel they plan night activities if you want to join them so it is really easy to get to know other hostel guests. Atmosphere was great, everything was clean and kitchen was very useful and offered everything we needed and more. And Joop the cat was adorable. Great place to stay and we would recommend this to everyone. Missing it already!

I didn't even mean to rate this place 100% but honesty couldn't find a reason not to. Incredible placement, facilities, people, staff. It was really a wonderful place. It was clean, there is a shared kitchen and back patio/ garden, a house cat that chills down there, really great events daily, it's extremely quiet at night in your rooms whether stuff is going on downstairs or not, and the rooms rock.
Awesome staff. Comfortable beds. Great location! Wish I could have stayed longer
