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 ClinkCoco, formerly known as ‘Cocomama, one of Amsterdam’s quirkiest and most beloved hostels.

First time backpacker? You’re in the right place. Located in the heart of Amsterdam, ClinkMama is brimming with color, character, and amazing guests! Whether you choose a themed private room or a comfy dorm bed, you can kick back in our inviting living room before diving into one of Europe’s best cities.

Our rooms are uniquely designed, offering everything from private doubles to 6-bed dorms (and everything in between). While some dorms share a bathroom, luxurious mattresses and feather duvets are standard in every room. And at ClinkCoco, you’re never alone. Share travel stories and meals at our communal table. Make friends and hang out with fellow travellers in our private garden or common room or cook up a storm in our fully equipped kitchen—perfect for keeping costs down.
Feeling homesick or just need some furry company? Our friendly resident cat is here to keep you company and add to the cozy, homey vibe. 😊
Our staff keeps the fun going with tons 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 we’re fully booked, don’t worry! Check out our little sister hostel ClinkMama or our larger sister ClinkNOORD. We can’t wait to welcome you at Clink!

The location was great. The one Irish staffer we met was super nice very chatty. The rooms were very small. The amenities were non existent. There was one plug in the room to charge phone, watches, battery packs. The WiFi didn’t work. I ended up using my data which drained my phone plan. The common space was messy. I don’t think I would stay here again.

This hostel was great except only 1 dorm has curtains! They are both advertised as curtains but unfortunately I got the room that was just metal bunk beds that were super squeaky and exposed. Rooms are quite cramped but the hostel itself has a great vibe since it’s in a house. Staff are super friendly and chatty. Very relaxed vibe in the hostel where you could chill out or socialise. Gorgeous resident cat Mishka was a plus too!

Che cosa ci mette davanti agli altri sono i nostri numerosi piccoli extra, come il noleggio biciclette a buon mercato, le gite in barca privata, il nostro gatto coccolone Joop e pasta, riso, olio, spezie, caffè e tè gratuiti in cucina! Per divertimento i nostri ospiti si uniscono a una delle nostre numerose attività, come il 'Tight ass' al martedì (birra e pasta per â'¬ 3), i film notturni, la crociera di bevande alcoliche, la Nintento e altro ancora. La proprietaria dell'ostello é una giovane donna energica con eccezionale conoscenza locale di Amsterdam. Consigliamo in particolare alla gente di andare in bicicletta o in barca: ti dà una visione totalmente diversa e locale della città. Siamo anche vicino al Mercato Albert Cuyp (due minuti a piedi), la fabbrica della birra Heineken (cinque minuti a piedi), Piazza dei Musei (5-10 minuti a piedi) e i bar, ristoranti e locali di Leidseplein e Rembrandtplein (10 minuti 'a piedi).
