Brilliant atmosphere, great people, cool staff. Go for the pub crawl, it totally rocks!

Excellent hostel with a relaxed vibe. Lots of common spaces and very social without being a party hostel. Great rooms - very clean. Good kitchen facilities and the adjoining cafe does great coffee. All in all a really good place to base you visit to Amsterdam.

I loved staying here! The atmosphere is great and the cool open floor plan of the common areas make Ecomama unique. The staff was great and the beds were super comfy. The girls dorm had straighteners to borrow. Would definitely recommend it!

I can't speak highly enough about this hostel. What a perfect experience! You get the tranquility of a hotel outside the city, but you're only a 10 minute walk away from the centre of the Red Light District. That staff were super nice and helpful and I met a ton of people as a solo traveller. Thank you!

The rooms were fantastic and the staff were so friendly it felt like home. This was the most luxurious hostel we have stayed in we didn't want to leave. We would come back here for sure!

I would appreciate if staff would remind guests not to turn on the overhead light or talk in the dorm rooms when they arrive home at night.

Nice common room with a large table and a cosy kitchen. Doublebed-Room with no window, in summer, it's hot in there.

Not only did Ecomama provide a comfortable stay but also a great hostel atmosphere. They have events arranged for most nights which are great to meet new people and interact with them. The hostel is also very spacious and open which gives one a lot of breathing room as opposed to boxy indoor areas. It was an excellent experience overall.

I generally liked Ecomama very much. It has a big communal area with a cosy and well-equipped kitchen and even a huge tent (inside) to chill out in. Staff was nice and helpful. Only negative point: the standard double rooms are build inside the big communal hall, so its quite noisy (take earplugs). These rooms also dont have windows which I didnt like either. Otherwise, great hostel!

The hostel is great, and new. The rooms and toilets are very clean and comfortable- however the best part is the large common area, perfect for meeting people. The kitchen so far is the biggest I've seen in a hostel, and the nightly events are quite good. The hostel isn't too close to the center, but I wouldn't consider it a problem- there is a bike rental just down the street and they give discounts to ecomama guests. The best way to know Amsterdam is by renting a bike.

Great hostel located about a 10min walk away from the red light district. The communal kitchen is great and well stocked and the honesty bar is a great idea €1 for a beer it's the best deal in Amsterdam! Meeting people is easy just sit round the communal table and you'll soon start chatting, even the staff are sociable. I can't recommend this place highly enough if you want to have a great time this is the place to stay.

Cute little hostel. Very near to metro station (4/5 mins walk). Can walk to red light district easily and to the centre of Amsterdam. On arrival, reception staff were lovely and gave us a map and answered any questions we had. Lovely kitchen facilities.

Absolutely love this hostel!! The atmosphere is good, the staff are friendly and the rooms are amazing ! Stayed in an 8 bed dorm and it was very specious !! Although they didn't have massive lockers in the room to fit your suitcase they still had smaller lockers for you to store your valuables which isn't a problem at all!! Definitely coming back again! 😀
