I stayed here on a Sunday eve, having a job interview the next day. The 8 bed dorm was spacious, the bunk beds are great with electricity/light for each, but the WIFI was not working so well. They stored kindly my computer at the reception as I forgot my lock! Great spacy interior, great staff. Fully booked but didn't notice even. Relax atmosphere, 17 min walk from Central Station, 10 min from the center. Huge supermarket around the corner. Will stay again!

Lovely and cozy hostel with very kind staff (they give hosts suggestions about what to do/see/visit in the city and they arrange pub crawl and nights out with locals). The hostel is located in a very central area, close to a very busy area (Rembrandtplein) and the zoo (a must-visit place!!)

I have stayed at a number of hostels in Amsterdam and this one was by far the best. As a solo traveller this place had atmosphere with a great communal space but was not located right in the middle of the red light district meaning you could party when you wanted but also chill if preferred. Facilities were also very tidy and the kitchen did not have a single fly which is very rare!

I loved ecomama - the staff were great, a fantastic vibe with tunes playing in the common area. Great little touches including lavender under pillows. I would love to come stay again as is one of the best hostels ive been too.

Great location, a very friendly and home from home atmosphere. Open plan kitchen, dining area is great. What I liked was the community board. If you are travelling alone it's a great way to go out as a group with others from the hostel and explore Amsterdam. A cool, trendy, hip, unpretentious, down to earth hostel. Staff that are informative and helpful. This place also opens as a organic cafe during the day, therefore always a nice atmosphere as you walk through the door. Totally recommend.

You don't always get what you pay for. I hoped by paying more for a space while traveling that I would see some sort of results. No accommodation for check in times. Mistakes made with reservations. Very noisy night stuck in room next to food lobby. Furnishings are all recycled metal, cardboard and fabric done in an incredibly pretentious fashion. No value for what was spent. Also, I've learned to research locations better. Construction in front and far from sites & transportation.

Lovely hostel, wifi for the rooms was taken away near the beginning of our stay which was a bit inconvenient as we both needed it for work but it was still available in the common area. Also had some building work going on on some days so it was a little noisy at times. But it's really close to the centre and our room overlooked the canal which was lovely. Super comfy bed and good coffee from Filter at the front!

I am so in love with ecomama!! The staff is so stellar; they talk to you like you're already friends and they're really knowledgable when it comes to giving you info about events, sights, etc in the city. The atmosphere is super open concept and chill and the layout of the place sincerely makes it easy to meet others! Kitchen is amazing and a fully stocked beer fridge for a euro per beer :D People I met there are so insanely friendly.. I just have no more words - go there :)

I loved staying at Ecomama. I'll definitely come back again. I love the kitchen area, and how it's so open and spacious. The staff was so courteous, they made plans for a pub crawl and a night in. I stayed in the 8 bedroom, my only thing was the mosquitoes that come in from the canal. It would be cool to install maybe some insect repellent. And maybe more powerpoints.

I was in the private booth, which was literally a box as it had no window, it was still great to sleep, as there came no light inside . The private cabins were in the middle of the hallway next to the kitchen where the noise and music, starting at 7am ( kitchen ) and going until 2pm ( guests talking ) . This problem would be mitigated with a policy of silence at night or the completion of the kitchen wall to the ceiling . Location was great, walking : 10mim to...

Great hostel. Looks very awesome, and Patrcia from the staff was great.

I slept in the "kind of" basement where they have the cheapest beds. There are some toilets pipes (from the upper floor toilets) that are still exposed in the ceiling. Water rushing through them was audible and I felt like being splashed by water in sleep. I had no bed locker; used the common locker. Besides that, it is a clean, quiet and safe place to stay.

Easily our favourite hostel in the world. Fantastic facilities, open plan & ultra modern. The staff are amazing, super knowledgable and down to earth. They don't just run the hostel, they get involved; whether it be having a drink or coming on a pub crawl (looking at you Craig) they will show you a good time. The dining/ chillout space (teepee) is awesome. The only thing that I would change is possible a skylight into the private rooms & maybe some more sound proofing. Love Ecomama!
