This was my very first ever hostel experience, I loved every bit about it. I wish I stayed here for my whole Amsterdam trip. Excellent location and is literally so close to everything. It is very solo traveller friendly due to the hostel being small and cosy. The kitchen is very clean and their cat Joop is extremely cute and... More

This review could have been very positive, as the hotel is located in a nice area and also the interior is cozy. BUT the room was very cold (we travelled in November) and the heater did not work. We informed the stuff, but they just told us, that they would know about this issue... But nothing changed during our stay... More

Top notch hostel in Amsterdam. Fast wifi, comfy (albeit soft) mattreases. Wooden bunk beds so they're not squeaky. Great quiet part of town a short walk or tram from everywhere, close to some Street markets where you can buy anything! Everyone whinging about small bathrooms, it's really not an issue unless you're spending hours on the john (toilet) Recommended the... More

The place itself was great - beautiful rooms, friendly staff. Some of the clientele weren't great though, for which I've subtracted one star. Specifically, people were coming and going in the middle of the night and being very loud. I don't know how much the hostel can realistically do about this but I figure that it's about the type of...

This hostel is great: comfortable, clean and staff were awesome. In the early hours of the morning, despite issues using my keypass to access my dorm, staff promptly came and helped me after I contacted them. Undine was helpful in resolving my booking issues. Shame I'm not staying in this hostel longer because it was very nice!

I stayed at this hostel because it happened to be the cheapest for the night that I was in Amsterdam. The hostel was clean and gave me a place to stay at a reasonable cost. The lighting fixture next to my bed fell apart when I plugged in my charger, but other than that everything was functioning.

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
