The hostel was very nice. The beds were comfortable and everything was super clean.
I loved the hostel itself, and the staff were really great. But not good as a solo traveller. May have just been the crowd but I found it hard to meet people. Also so expensive!! But definitely one of the most nicely decorated hostels I ever stated in.
A little bit expensive but I guess that's how it is in Amsterdam. We didn't find anything cheaper in the city. The showers were good, but the sinks in the shared bathroom where sometimes a little bit nasty.
Only stayed at Eco mama for two nights and it was a short but very sweet stay. Felt very welcomed by the staff who pointed out all the best places to visit/eat on a map of Amsterdam. The decor inside the communal area was beautiful and our double superior room was also, with the pleasant surprise of a huge bath! I would have liked a full length mirror and some teabags for the kettle but none the less Eco mama was a fabulous place to stay in a great location.

Most beautiful hostel we've ever seen and great value for money too! Located a bit out of the madness of centrum which is nice for a change but you can still walk there in 10/15 mins. Would stay again!
beautiful, warm place with great and friendly staff. wouldn't change a thing :)
10/10 would stay there again. Perfect distance from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam but not too far out of the way. Beautiful inside. Great coffee (coming from a coffee snob). Really good value for what it is!
Second time I've stayed at this hostel on this trip and I thoroughly recommend it. I'm sure I will be back again. The beds are ridiculously comfortable, everything is super clean, the people are friendly, the design of the place makes it easy to make new friends and the location is within an easy bike ride to anywhere you want to go in Amsterdam. Perfect!
Staff was helpful, apart from one that didn't seem to have the patience to listen to me regarding my concern with riding a bike around the city. Padlocks have to be paid for €5 as my own padlock for my suitcase were too thin to lock the locker. They don't have hairdryer in the bathroom, so you have to ask the reception to borrow it. Problem is that reception closes at 9pm which means I was not able to wash my hair after 9pm as I won't be able to dry it after that time. Shower was cold at times.
Brilliant - just what you need if you need a little getaway with your partner. Friendly staff, the location of the hostel was excellent, always clean with great amenities. Thank you all!
It was such a great stay. I was nervous to stay in my first hostel, but I wouldn't have rather stayed anywhere else!

This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in! Our room was right on a canal and I got to wake up every morning to the water by my head. The design was adorable and it felt so safe and homey! The kitchen was awesome and the whole area fostered you to meet people, the staff were amazing and so helpful, wish we didn't have to leave!
Absolutely adorable hostel, super cool atmosphere, great staff. There's a bakery at the front that sells killer lemon bars. Have recommended all my friends visiting Amsterdam to stay here!
I loved the atmosphere at this hostel. Everyone who worked there was so friendly and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this hostel to others and would come back and stay here again!
The staff is excellent. Very friendly and helpful. The location is good, with a market nearby and it's easy to get to nice areas of town. Definitely a better place if you are looking for a relaxed environment. Was a little disappointed there wasn't more organized group tours/dinners/pub crawls. But I was there early in the week and it seems there are more activities on the weekends.
Another gem of a hostel. It's pretty chill but the staff (especially Ross and Chris) do an excellent job getting people engaged and talking in the common room. The owner is very nice, she obviously puts a lot of work into the atmosphere and aesthetics of this hostel. I met a lot of great people here and having a cafe inside was a big plus. The manager (not the owner) was disappointing. She provided poor service and was just not interested in solving problems in a way that benefited customers.
Beautiful hostel. Beds were ridiculously comfortable. Showers were plentiful and the whole place was exceptionally clean. I was expecting a bit more of a backpacker vibe but that is okay. Laundry service was reasonably priced and decently prompt. Location was excellent - nice walk to the centre and close to a supermarket. Also about a 20 minute walk to Amsterdam Centraal train station. Many lockers available. Staff were knowledgeable and able to assist with any queries plus give recommendations.
I loved ecomama!! It really felt like it was my home. The teepee was the best, so comfy and the swings were a fun touch! The staff were awesome I really enjoyed them especially a man named Ross, he was very helpful I'll be recommending it to everyone I know 10/10
Excellent recpetion, bed was OK, pillow was horrible. Common rooms are very large and nice atmosphere, dorms are a bit crowded.

This place is so cool! Staff is awesome AND it was super super clean which I love. They have a key card which you need to unlock the gate and get inside the hostel. There's someone at the front desk most waking hours. Beds were comfy and the common area was spacious. The kitchen was well stocked -- there was a "free box" for supplies that others did not use (same with toiletries) and an "honesty fridge" where you could pay one euro and get a drink, a waffle, etc. There's a giant comfy couch :)
