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

Welcome to Cocomama!

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!

Please read our T&Cs below before booking, so there are no surprises!

If you wish to cancel or amend your reservation and avoid full charges for your booking, please ensure you notify us by email as soon as possible and at least 48 hours prior to your arrival date notice. Passed this time, we are afraid full charges will incur.

    I loved every second in Cocomama, everyone's super nice and gave me a warm welcome. It feels like a home but is also a great place to meet new people and chill, very clean rooms and bathroom and kitchen. I'd recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Amsterdam, I'll definitely go back one day. As a solo traveler it was one of the best experiences 💖

    This is one of my favorite hostels. It just has everything you need - nothing extravagant. Thanks to them I was able to get the most out of my trip even if stayed just 3 days. What makes it so cozy, and magic is the staff. You wake up to a nice breakfast even with some vegan options, and After a long working day, you really feel like arriving HOME for a nice rest and dinner with friends. Agustin and Jacobo helped me with everything and made the stay magic with their positive energy :)

    Loved this hostel. Not best that I've been but probably 2nd best :) Staying here made my trip to Amsterdam special. Staff was lovely and helpful. Rooms were nice and you get breakfast for free. History of the house is very interesting too! Location is good. Quiet area but you can get to city center in less than 15 minutes. I met so many wonderful people in here. Will be back for sure!

    My favorite Hostel. Incredibly social and cozy atmosphere. Breakfast and check out go through noon, for 6euro my laundry was done for me, comfy beds, wonderful common space and garden. A pleasure to stay at.

    Cocomama is not city-centre but is located in De Pijp which is a cool neighbourhood close to the museums. I loved this area of the city and the staff were super-friendly too. Perhaps a few more pointers re local restaurants etc would have been the cherry on the icing, but I would have no hesitation recommending this hostel a friend.

    It's a pretty good hostel for staying in the center of Amsterdam. It didn't have that much of a hostel vibe but was well equipped for a night or two of sleeping. I really liked the free breakfast, common room, and courtyard. The layout is pretty good with 4 beds and a private bathroom. Leidelplein and Rembrandtplein are less than 10 minutes away, and other points of interest not much further. Unfortunately I couldn't sleep because of restless roommates, but that wasn't the hostel's fault.

    Had the best sleep I ever had in a hostel! Heard they had special custom made mattresses, if you want to explore Amsterdam and come back for a good sleep, THIS is the place. The staff were super nice, especially Kasper. Would totally recommend this place!

    Very Good

    Cocomama had comfy beds and the rooms had huge windows. The kitchen was tiny but not many people use it. The breakfast available was pretty good with meats/eggs/cheese/toast/fruit. The volunteers weren’t very friendly - that was kind of a weird vibe. They did our laundry tho and returned it folded which was so nice! Bathrooms/cleanliness was all average to good!

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).
