This was the best hostel I have ever stayed in. It's more of a home feeling and so well decorated and maintained that it stands above the rest when it comes to the hostel. The staff were so friendly and helpful and genuinely love their job. The private room was fantastic and the common areas like the kitchen and lounge area was perfect. It was also in a great location, away from the big crowds but close enough to get around. Thanks Ecomama

Ecomama stands out among all these other hostels because it creates community. Clara, Elrieke, and Patricia are so accommodating made my stay in Amsterdam much easier than it would have been alone. Clara spends he day making sure everyone is taken care of but also having a blast. This is my number one recommendation to anyone staying in Amsterdam.

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in my life. Amazing. The staff was great. The guests also and I´ve got to know such special people. Very clean and cozy. The beds were really confortable, like hotel beds. The honesty bar is also a great idea. Special thanks to Clara, such an amazing person. Really enjoyed the time she was with us. Hope to visit and meet her again.

Really lovely, lively hostel- the staff are knowledgeable and take people out most nights so it's a great place to meet people. Cafe next door is also a bonus, and rooms were well maintained and nicely presented. Would highly recommend it to anyone!

Beautiful hostel! Staff was extremely friendly, had lots of activities offer, and hostel atmosphere was very cozy. Although it does run on the high end, price wise, considering how expensive Amsterdam is in general, it was definitely worth every penny. Ecomama has the highest of my recommendations!

GREAT hostel. Fantastic environment, helpful staff and awesome people. Probably our favourite hostel after 2 weeks of travelling in Europe. It's secure and very clean. It's not far from the metro station, close to a grocery store and reasonable distance from the canals and downtown core. We had an extremely enjoyable stay and I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone going to Amsterdam.

I found it strange there was no one on reception at night. If someone got in the front door they were into the hostel.

The female room is really girly (nice) and the beds are super comfortable! it's a good hostel with a nice staff (the welcome is very warm and they give you tips about the city). One problem is that the lockers inside the room are not that big (a regular backpack does not fit in them). The showers have a place to change (what it's great, because the pants do not get wet) and they are really hot. I got a little lost to get there from the metro station (the directions could be improved).

This would be a great place to meet people (the people are willing to chat and the environment is conducive to it), but I didn't really click with anyone (perhaps this is my fault for staying in a large tourist city during the week of Easter holiday). On the other hand, they had cool design magazines to read and the full-time live-in staff were pretty cool. Overall, it was a bit pricy but had the potential to be mind blowing.

We really enjoyed staying at the Ecomama Hostel! It's really close to the city center, very very clean and actually the most beautiful hostel, we've ever stayed in (great common room with a nice open kitchen, a big table, sofas and A TENT)... Also there is a nice Café in front of the reception, where you can buy really cheap breakfast, snacks, etc.

It is an interesting place, feels like a warehouse though so not an intimate feeling in the large open common space. Our basic private room was one of four small window-less cubes just behind the common areas so quite noisy- earplugs were a must. Basic means concrete floor and two single beds made of unfinished plywood, which were quite comfy. A bit disappointing when the photos on the website are all quirky rooms with windows. One common toilet and shower area.

Hostel was great, though a little bit of a walk from the centre of where I wanted to be everyday. Clean, fantastic kitchen, and the bathroom was also great. I would stay here again for sure, just maybe rent a bike!

Very stylish and clean hostel and easy to walk to everything in Amsterdam. Fairly social if you make the effort to talk to others. Not a huge party atmosphere but that was a good thing for me. Only issue is that the lockers in the female dorm only lock with a very large padlock, otherwise it is really easy to open. They do sell padlocks that work though.

Great atmosphere at the hostel with lots of insight on whats going on in the city! Our room was clean but we thought we were getting a double bed room but we got 2 twins, not there fault I should have inquired before... You can cook and store food so your not eating out for every meal. The staff was always around for a board game and made our stay a lot of fun!
