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.

    Wish I could’ve stay longer! The location is great, 10-15 min walk from Dam Square and the Red Light District. Kitchen is clean and very open. Nice outdoor seating area. Rooms are spacious and beds comfortable enough. Decent breakfast from 9-11 and they stored my bags after check out.

    It's a superb hostel, in walking distance to everything. Facilities are clean and well kept. I slept in a cabin, which was nice. For those who like window view: that's not the place. Plus: the cabins are located in the lobby / chill out area. That makes it quite noisy. The chill out area itself is extremely nice and comfortable. Small reminder: if you stay alone in a single room, do not lock yourself out of the room in the night as there is nobody on the reception in the night.

    This hostel has ruined me for all other hostels! Super friendly staff and other guests. Spoke more at this hostel than any other- felt like an actual community. Nice and clean with enough bathroom facilities for everyone. Kitchen was actually useable with space and utensils. I ended up staying an extra night because I loved it so much! Thanks Ecomama

    Beautiful, clean hostel with a lovely and interesting interior. But this is not a good place to meet people as a solo traveller. Despite the large and inviting common area, it doesn’t have a social atmosphere. People seem to go to this hostel mainly in big groups or couples. Although I did manage to meet some people it certainly wasn’t the norm to hang out with fellow travellers. It’s a shame because on other aspects, particularly the sustainability, it does well.

    Very Good

    Hostel was pretty good in most aspects. Certainly a good location if you want quiet, safe area. Staff and amenities were both great. My minor complaint was lack of A/C which I was hoping for, given this hostel is at a higher price point. Otherwise, great hostel overall.

    Nice location .. walk-in distance to many attractions. Nice hangout area and friendly staff. The dorm didn’t have plugs or lights in the bunks which would have been nice. Bathrooms were usually clean. Overall good.
