Ecomama has a great vibe and has one of the nicest communal areas that encourages people to interact with eachother. Staff really friendly too, will be back for sure

Wonderful, clean, friendly hostel with excellent facilities and very helpful staff that will give you loads of information about amsterdam. It's in a great location, only a 15minute walk from the centre of amsterdam. The bed was superrr comfy and bathroom facilities were great, never had to wait. It is not a party hostel, but plenty of people around to meet and they have various activities on throughout the week. Keep up the good work ecomama!

We did not expect such a fantastic Hostel! It was really cool. The people were nice and and the atmosphere was just incredibly relaxed and warm.

I loved this hostel! It's well-designed so that you can easily meet people. I never had issues finding an open shower, the kitchen is kept clean, the beds had soft linens and were extremely comfortable. The staff was great - I changed bookings a few times and there were no issues. They also were knowledgeable about the city (good info!) and the hostel has museum passes. The only (minor) problem was the door key system. It's loud in the middle of the night. And, there is a TENT!

Great staff great location. Will recommend to any friends going to Amsterdam. They took the time out to really help you find things to do and places to go.

Really cozy, clean and comfortable hostel. Its right next to a cafe you can grab some breakfast and they have a really well designed space to socialise in. Brilliant place, will definitely go back if I go to Amsterdam again.

It's cool to have a rental bike that does not mark you as a tourist. Free fruits (apples)! Fantastic!!! Great cosy area with sofa and so on. Great coffee place at the front!

Aesthetically, the place was lovely. The place was beautifully welcoming with a really unique touch. However didn't like that the private rooms are situated in the middle of the common area so quite noisy, as well as having no windows as they are just boxes on the walls of a larger room. No ventilation either. And unisex toilets ? Little surprise I wasn't too thrilled about. Staff were helpful but not exactly warm and friendly. Great facilities. Loved the gorgeous bikes for hire

Fantastic set up, great location, great bikes to hire and helpful staff. The staff often were not at the desk which meant you had to wait a while for service. Overall really happy with he place. Loved the cafe out the front, fantastic coffee!

The location was pretty good, it was about a 20 minute walk to anywhere. The bathrooms were shared between all the hostelers but I was impressed with the privacy of both the toilets and the showers. The staff were friendly and interacted with everyone well. They put on organized events every night which was awesome. I would stay here again!

Chris (the Wizard) is super cool. Hostel is beautiful and very comfortable. Good social atmosphere. Don't bother with the pub crawl

Good location, clean rooms The only thing to improve is the front desk: too messy, had to wait half an hour until someone was available to do the check-in. Check-in time is too late: starts at 4PM, should be earlier.

The 4pm check in at Ecomama means we can offer a check out time of 12pm. This is appreciated by guests who have had a heavy night of sight seeing the day before check out. Guests who check in before 4pm can leave bags with us and explore until rooms are ready. If you were waiting because reception was empty, know that the walkie talkie can be used to summon the reception gremlins. If you were waiting because there was a queue, patience is a virtue.

I've recommended ecomama to many people after my stay here. It was pleasant place to stay, only walking distance from red light district. Staff are super informative and friendly. And the awesome teepee and swings were super cool

This is a great hostel, and was my favorite on my recent four-city Europe trip. Staff is very helpful and knowledgeable about the city, facilities are clean and high-quality, and the whole atmosphere of the place is friendly and social; it feels more like a community than a place for anonymous travelers. Would definitely recommend for solo travelers (which I was) or really anyone. The location is just a short walk from the Red Light District, and much safer and quieter than staying right there.

Excellent place and people working there! Only thing: price too high for a dorm (not only here, it´s an Amsterdam-thing really), especially for ending up in a noisy one.

Owner Comment (Hide)
You are correct in assuming that the perceived expensive prices for dorms is an 'Amsterdam thing'. We offer quality rooms for competitive prices. We are sorry to hear that you were in a noisy dorm. Ecomama is not a party hostel. If you had made the noise issue you experienced during your stay known to staff we could have provided you with earplugs and/or had a word with your dormmates. Hopefully you enjoyed your stay and recommend us to your friends.
