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.

Very nice small to mid sized hostel. Has a lovely lounge space with comfortable couches and big table. Very chill vibe when I was there, not a party place. Code system for easy access and location in a quiet neighborhood right on the tram lines.

Thin walls. Close to train stop. Not close to red light district. Had a nice kitchen. Loud front door when it slams shut. We were on the ground floor so that might have made it even louder.

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).
