We love this Hostel!

It gets our thumbs up for consistently high guest reviews.

Hostelworld says

Cocomama was voted the best in the Netherlands at the 2011 Hoscars and it's not hard to see why-guests have said this boutique hostel is 'the opposite to the big corporate hostels that lack character', with clean, newly furnished rooms 'done up to the small detail'. Hostelworld reviewers tell us the staff 'love their city [and] will give you all the info you need on where to go', making this hostel feel 'like a home away from home'. We particularly like the resident cat and the large back garden.

Property Description

Cocomama offers the best of both worlds in a super central location in Amsterdam. The luxury and comfort of a hotel and the atmosphere (and budget) of a hostel.

The rooms are all Holland themed and range from private doubles to 6-bed dorms (and everything in between). You might share a bathroom in some the dorms, but those luxurious mattresses and feather duvets are everywhere.

Even more importantly, at MAMA, you're not on your own. Travel stories are shared, as is the dinner table. It’s a place where you’ll make friends and hang out with other international trotters alike in the private garden or common room, or perhaps cook dinner in the fully-equipped kitchen (perfect to keep costs down). And if that doesn’t keep you busy enough, the staff organise tonnes of activities including movie nights, drink nights, games nights and family dinners!

    This hostel is magical. A real homely atmosphere and a diverse range of interesting people to meet and talk to. The staff are genuinely lovely human beings, and very welcoming. My room felt like being in a train compartment and, though small - managed to give each person privacy. Absolutely will be back! Thank you for having me x

    This hostel sets the bar HIGH! We decided to stay at Cocomama for our stop in Amsterdam. Best decision we could have made! This was our favorite hostel experience. Like any establishment, it’s all about the people, and the staff (especially Cassy, Joey, and Alex) were outstanding. What a great asset to the company! Friendly, quick to answer questions and assist with anything. The common area is amazing and allows you to meet so many people from around the world. It’s so welcoming. Stay!Trust me!

    This place is one of the best hostels I’ve been to! Great atmosphere, facilities and super cosy common room which makes it easy to meet new people, especially for solo travellers! I did have an issue with finding bed bugs in my bed, however the staff resolved the situation easily and let me switch to a different bed and wash my clothing free of charge so it made the situation stress free. Definitely would recommend!

    We were there during the heatwave. We had two 38 degree days and there was no fans or air conditioning in our room. We paid a lot of money for a deluxe room, and we had a terrible time.

    I simply think its far too expensive for a room you need to share with a stranger. When I got there at 10pm the person who was there was asleep and I couldnt even make a sound or shower or turn the light on. Bit of a letdown. Place was clean and shower was ok.

Cocomama says

What puts us ahead of the rest is our many little extras, like cheap bike rental, private hostel boat tours, our cuddly hostel cat Joop and the free pasta, rice, oil, spices and coffee/tea in the kitchen! For fun our guests join in on one of our many activities, like Tight Ass Tuesday (beer and pasta for â'¬3), movie night, the booze cruise, Nintento NES battles and more. Our hostel is run and owned by young, energetic ladies with outstanding local knowledge of Amsterdam. We especially recommend that people go biking or boating through Amsterdam - it gives you a total different and local view of the city.
We're also close to Albert Cuyp Market (two minutes' walk), the Heineken Brewery (five minutes' walk), Museum Square (5-10 minutes' walk) and the bars, restaurants and clubs of Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein (10 minutes' walk). Anika, Owner/Manager
