Property Description

Ecomama allows joyful, conscious living in the heart of Amsterdam. It’s the right combination of the coziness of a community, the luxury of a hotel and meaningfulness of a social business.

Whether you are travelling with your crew and need a few beds or you're on a romantic escape, looking for some luxury while exploring the world – Ecomama offers unique and personalized accommodations and 7 room types to choose from. They all range in size, privacy and budget.

There’s plenty of communal space to get inspired, dream, meet, share & connect. A living room, fully-equipped kitchen, communal table, indoor swinging-chairs and the teepee-tent (perfect for movie-nights) – the place is yours during your stay.

Mama does green and conscious in a way that makes sense, as according to Anika Jacobs (who knows quite a bit about travelling), is no rocket science. It's about sharing and making conscious decisions in everyday life that will lead us to a more sustainable world.

Some of our facilities include: book exchange, movie lounge, fully equipped kitchen, bike rental and so on. On top of that, there's THE FIX - serving Coffee and drinks from Thursdays until Sundays

Ecomama is a chilled, sociable spot to stay during your Amsterdam city break, tucked down a quiet street just a 10 minute walk to the eclectic city centre. Whether you're travelling with friends or flying solo, our eco-conscious hostel has a cosy community vibe, with the hallmarks of a hip boutique hotel. After a busy day wandering Amsterdam's Nine Streets neighbourhood – packed with boutiques and vintage shops – snooze in our movie room or browse our hostel book exchange.


You’ll find us in Amsterdam’s Waterlooplein neighbourhood, an area full of cosy cafés, bustling bars and museums like the Hermitage and Rembrandthuis. If shopping for bargains is more your scene, try Waterlooplein Market, a five-minute stroll away, for quirky flea market finds. We’re a 15-minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal Station, which is easily reachable from the airport via a direct 20-minute train. Otherwise, hop on the metro and get off at Waterlooplein: we’re a five-minute walk from there.

Rooms and Dorms

If you want a base to mingle with other guests, go for a shared dorm. If you’re a solo female traveller we've got female-only dorms too. Beds come with a power socket and reading light to save you rummaging in your backpack in the dark. After your own private space? Treat yourself to our double deluxe or superior rooms, complete with linen and towels plus en-suite bathrooms.

Extras and activities

Borrow one of the hostel bikes to explore the city like a local. Or hang out with other travellers in the living room and kitchen, complete with swinging-chairs and a communal table for trying the local beer. Love a cosy night in? Put your feet up and watch a movie in our Teepee tents with a salmon bagel from THE FIX – our on-site café. If you're travelling for longer, you’ll be pleased to know all dorms have a large luggage locker to stow your suitcase – bring a padlock, or buy one at reception.

    Eco mama was the perfect place to stay while visiting Amsterdam. It was just outside of downtown so everything was walkable. The staff was helpful and informative. Definitely recommend staying here

    The best experience you need for your stay in Amsterdam. Location is top, beautiful area and close to city centre. Best thing is the networking you can do in the common area, meeting a lot of people. Staff is great, very kind and friendly. Don't lose time on finding the right place to stay, just go to Ecomama.

    Ecomama was so amazing. Right when you walk in the staff are super friendly and helpful with anything you need. There are tons of lockers to store your stuff, there is one bathroom but plenty of space and never too crowded. We stayed in 8 people experienced traveler room and it was super nice, it has sturdy wood bunk beds so you couldn't feel whoever was below or above you when they moved. Beds were comfortable, common areas and kitchen were nice. Also, the location is great to walk everywhere

    The staff was awesome, very nice and helpful. The cafe and lounge areas are really nice to hang out in and their kitchen is great if you’re going to be making your own food. The beds are some of the most comfy hostel beds I’ve slept in and out room had a great view of the water. The location has some hidden gems right beach to it and is very close to the heart of Amsterdam. It is a perfect spot for a hostel. GREAT HOSTEL, DO IT!

    Super cute and clean! Lovely staff and great location, about twenty minutes from Centraal Station. Only issues would be access to outlet plugs and a lack of any sustainable breakfast (always had to go to a cafe afterwards).

    Ecomama was had a lovely atmosphere in the common room, and staff were super duper friendly, especially Heidi, who we made friends with! However be careful on the room you book, as the budget private room had no windows!! We were not aware of this before we booked and had an unpleasant surprise when we arrived. In Australia it is illegal to not have any natural light come into the room, so we didn't even think this type of room could exist. Other than having no windows in our room, it was good!

    Pros: fine location, nice aesthetics, Jonny was exceptionally friendly and other staff. Cons: Mainly the manager- really loudly telling off some staff (on their day off), very unprofessional and changing the whole atmosphere of the common area, she was also very rude to us when checking out. Overall terrible attitude. Bathroom is open plan to corridor, meaning you can hear everything, everywhere. I’ve stayed in budget hostels that was a more comfortable and social stay, nothing special here.

    I would describe Ecomama as a true budget no-frills hostel. There is no problem with this except for the fact that you are paying a premium for this hostel. The bathroom was horrible, we didn’t feel comfortable showering. We stayed in a mixed bed dorm style room and the room did not have plug ins, adequate lighting, the beds were extremely creaky with very small movement. The bathroom had no hand towels, we intended on renting normal towels but we did not see a staff member after our initial c
