Great location, most things were within walking distance, or at least close to public transit. The staff was incredibly nice, welcoming and always gave good recommendations on local places. We were in a 4 bed mixed dorm and the beds were nice and clean, the shower was hot and the room had a cool theme! Good place to talk to...

What a cool spot! Staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. Definitely a place to meet fellow travelers. We only got to stay one night, our last after a long backpacking trip. But we still had a great time! Also in a hot young neighbor with good bars and food. I HIGHLY recommend it.

I stayed here with some friends for 4 days and we all loved it! The rooms are themed which adds so much character and makes the stay a bit more fun. Our room had its own bathroom which was really new and clean, and was even cleaned again each day to our surprise! When we first arrived one of the...

Our room at Cocomama was perfect! The curtains for the beds and the bathroom inside the room were both very nice. The common room downstairs was perfect for hanging out and even grabbing a small bite for breakfast. We also really liked the Red Light District tour that the hostel offered for only 10 euro.

Coming in from the rain, we received a warm and friendly welcome from Tanya, immediately making us feel right at home. Was delighted to find out we had the Royal Suite (with the round bed!!) when we arrived. Had friends staying in shared dorms and private doubles - all rooms were uniquely decorated and well equipped. The hostel was happy...

We all had an incredible experience at Cocomama, from the minute we arrived till the minute we left. All of the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating (especially Brad). The common room was extremely cosy and well equipped. Great location with lots of good bars and restaurants less than a 10 minute walk away! Would highly recommend to any young...

Friendly staff one of the best hostels I've been to. The girls from Belfast and Scottland were very welcoming and chatty. Took the red light district tour with Moo and it was well worth it! As I was a woman traveling alone it was great to take the tour with a group. The hostel is set up where you can...

Very nice hostel with a friendly staff. Stayed in the 6 bed room and have no complaints, each bed has a curtain so it's very private. Lockers are huge. Read here that the bathroom had a "funky smell" and that's true, but it's ok.

Decided on a last minute trip to Amsterdam and booked at Cocomama for 4 days. I cannot believe how amazing it was! Super friendly and helpful staff, especially the opening tour. Beds were the perfect length for a tall person such as myself. Best part was the common room in the basement (with a backyard) that felt more like a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 of 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, living room, cinema, or cook dinner in the fully-equipped kitchen (perfect to keep costs down). And if that doesn't keep you busy enough, the staff organises tons of activities, and Joop (the adorable house cat, a.k.a. man of the house), is there to get cuddled 24/7 too. ... more   less
