Best hostel I have stayed in and expect to stay in ever again. Will definitely be back. Shared toilets and showers but always very clean and never an issue getting a shower/toilet. Beds were clean and comfortable and each bed had an outlet. Plenty of lockers in rooms and hallway. Really stellar kitchen and common areas--very easy to make friends. Great location. Security only "Good" because it's attached to a cafe which is open during the day so non-hostel residents may wander around.

The hostel is located in a calm street but not so far from the famous places. It's a calm and perfect place to relax after walking around Amsterdam. The staff is one of the most friendly and helpful I found in my trip.

Had an amazing stay here! The staff were all really lovely and joined in conversations with us. A great place to meet people as a solo traveller. There is so much space and it's really easy to cook with an open plan kitchen. Even though it's huge they have made it feel really cosy still. Definitely recommend!

This place is amazing. If you like good people in a really cool and relax place, I really recommend you to go to Ecomama. I was in a room with big windows turn to the canal. So, it was possible to enjoy the silence and nature which involve all the hostel. Good service. Great people. Amazing space.

The staff are very welcoming, let you know everything that is available for you at the hostel, and give you information for where to go and what to do in Amsterdam just like they would do in a tourist information desk. The installations are spacious and pretty, with a hippy / nature touch to it. The rooms are spacious and beds perfectly clean! Loved it!

Absolutely incredible! Loved the decor, the helpfulness of the staff, and the coffee shop at the front!

Great place to stay while spending a couple of days in Amsterdam. Very nice kitchen with cosy and spacious common space allowing interaction with other residents and extremely helpful staff at the reception. A little bit expensive, but definitely good value for money. Thank you!

Ecomama is a beautiful, environmentally friendly, very comfortable hostel. The rooms are nicely sized and bathrooms always clean, and the communal kitchen is very useful at times and the staff are amazing, they go above and beyond in making sure guests have a great stay and enjoy their time getting to know Amsterdam. The only shock was that wifi isn't available in the downstairs rooms yet (as it is a new hostel)...but this just means you get to sit in communal areas and socialise!

Possibly best hostel I've ever stayed. Modern, cosy and clean. The setup makes it easy to socialise. Kitchen might be a bit cramped when the house is full, but then who cooks when they're in A'dam? Location is excellent: easy to reach, no traffic noise inside and about 10 min from central station and just about everything else (city ain't that big). I loved it and will be staying there again!

A quiet backpackers tucked off of Valkenburgerstraat. I walked past it when I first arrived because its discretely hidden behind the cafe called Filter. The atmosphere is very relaxed with a great kitchen. The staff were extra friendly and always happy to help with advice surrounding music and festivals, which is why I went. You can't smoke joints there, however it is really close to the action as well as the parks. Great location, good people! See you next summer.

Beautiful hostel, one of the cleanest you'll find in walking distance from the center of Amsterdam. Great staff, open kitchen/common area with a teepee (!) and quite comfortable beds.

Just fantastic, beautiful, good deal. Restaurant in the front was not a good value for money.

Definetly the best hostel I've stayed in! The atmosphere is great, the staff was very nice, facilities were great and everything was extremely clean! My only complaint is that they didn't have individual plugs close to the beds in the room with 12 people, but that's ok, everything else was so great it made up for it!

Really liked this place, great stocked kitchen and huge common area, comfy beds with power, wifi. Atmosphere excellent, not crazy/annoying, but the big common table encouraged guests to chat and hang out. All very clean. Staff really friendly and helpful. Not right in hectic city centre, but still very short walk. Highly recommend this place.

This hostel is unique! Very cosy and comfortable. Good location - in center, but still not in the very middle, so that it takes you only 10 min to reach the heart of Amsterdam. Friendly and attentive staff (thanks for explaining me how to reach all notable places of attraction on foot:) I really enjoyed the Atmosphere of Ecomama!! You feel yourself like at home, contented and happy. I only can advise travelers to come over and check the coolest hostel out!!
