Some members of the staff are very polite and helpful, others tend to rush you. My dorm was rather ordinary and narrow, but I slept well. The bathroom was small and basic, with modern equipment. The location between tram lines 4, 7 and 10 is convenient. I was not too impressed by the place, but since it is almost always full they must be doing something right. I would recommend staying there for people who like small hostels - provided you can avoid the end-of-week price increases.

Thank you for review, we value your opnion. We are sorry to hear you felt rushed by some of our staff members, this is not the feeling we want to give. It will be discussed in our next staff meeting to make sure we will improve on this. We are glad to hear you slept well in our beds, after all that's what you ultimate booked. Unfortunate the size of the room is not something we can change, we are situated in a beautiful monumental building housed in the tiny city center of Amsterdam. Given the fact that we are where we are, you surely should have been hardly in your room at all and enjoying all the fun and beauty the city has to give! Perhaps small scale hostels aren't your cup of tea, we always found our non sleeping-factory to be one of our plus sides ;) Nevertheless we hope to see you again and show your our improvements. Warm regards, Nicky & the cocomama team

Mostly OK - the toilets in the additional building are not particularly convenient, but the showers are OK, and I could sleep well. Bring your padlock (or buy it there). The location is not particulary central, but really not far from the old city. I liked the backyard.

Des problèmes de clés (cartes magnétiques), sûrement provisoires mais qui engendrent un peu de cafouillage à l'accueil. Sinon le prix est relativement élevé mais c'est plutôt bien, la chambre était spacieuse, calme (malgré la proximité avec l'animation), le petit déjeuner inclus correct. Le Wi-Fi fonctionnait très bien y compris dans la chambre, et des ordinateurs sont aussi disponibles en libre-service.

The bathrooms were not ideal, other than that a recommendable place; I would come back if I stay in Genoa again.

This was my second time here, so a good address, with nice staff. I think that the 6-bed room is actually better than the 4-bed room, but your mileage may vary.

Bon accueil, chambres pas très douillettes, un peu bruyant mais bon on s'y attend un peu. Sanitaires un peu bizarres mais propres. Casiers disponibles, penser à amener son cadenas. Petit déjeuner (à la française) inclus correct. Quartier un peu excentré mais pas désagréable (ils devraient indiquer que les bus 14, 2, 19 s'arrêtent aussi là, en plus du 31 et 40). Au bout du compte pas de déception, c'est conforme à la description et plutôt bien pensé.

The double room was a bit pricey for its size; you can probably find better-equipped apartments or hotel rooms in a similar price range. Other than that, well-organized place and welcoming staff.

Hi, thanks for your review! I just want to point out what we offer that most hotels and apartments can’t: the chance to stay in a social hostelling atmosphere and get to know travellers from around the world! We also have plenty of common space, a cozy bar (again, great for making new friends), a beautiful garden complete with fresh herbs and a giant chess set, a fully-equipped guest kitchen, free wireless and computers, bike rentals, and much more! Thanks for visiting, and do come again!

A bit pricey at that time, but well organized and with helpful staff. Of course the area is not very posh, but the proximity to the station is convenient when you have luggage.

I stayed only one night but I can imagine myself spending more time there to visit the city. The place is rather laid-back, but they try to offer a good range of services to the travellers ; all in all probably a better experience than most French hostels.

I found my stay quite pleasant, the beds are OK and the kitchen is nice, danish-style. The WiFi also works well, just make sure you're near the hotspot. I wouldn't recommend it in high season though, it might get a bit overcrowded.

C'est un peu rustique évidemment, mais c'est propre et situé de manière pratique pour qui arrive par train ou par bus. Penser à amener son cadenas.

Ne vous attendez pas à du luxe. Mais l'établissement est propre, bien placé, bien organisé. Certaines chambres sont mieux que d'autres.

Le personnel est sympathique, le quartier tranquille, l'auberge est tenue très propre. Le métro est à peu de distance. Pas mal d'avantages donc, sans que l'endroit sorte spécialement de l'ordinaire. Les chambres de quatre semblent nettement mieux que celles de six.

Petit établissement avec un accueil sympathique. Ambiance intime ou animée selon la compagnie présente ; bonne adresse pour un séjour d'un jour ou deux.
