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!

Lovely place, with a nice common room and chilled people! The aera is also very nice and walkable. What I will never generally understand is why you would design a Dorm room with these thin-metal-stick-shakey-bunk-beds! Why would you do that? Guest share the place with someone they dont know and everytime you or the other Person turns around its like an earthquake for the other one and vice versa. Getting up and down the bed wakes up every deep sleeping Person.

Excellent hostel for someone wanting a chilled weekend break in Amsterdam. The location is not super central, but still walkable into the centre and close to De Pijp which has nice bars and restaurants. Four bed dorms are small but comfortable. Definitely download their personalised Google Map for great local recommendations.

I had a fantastic stay at Cocomama, it was my first time doing solo travel and staying at a hostel and I couldn't have made a better choice. The accomodation was fantastic and the staff were lovely and made my trip to Amsterdam super memorable. Couldn't rate this place any more highly, it was entirely worth the money and more.
