I stayed at this hostel May 5-12. I had a wonderful time and was very sad to leave. The staff was awesome. They were always helpful, courteous and had a great attitude no matter what! They had organized events which was nice, although I never participated. This hostel was more pricey than most others but well worth the extra money. I enjoyed the common area in the kitchen which was great for meeting other guests if you wanted to. I recommend the Cheese Room, (4 person mixed) I had it the first 2 days of my stay and it was by far the best choice and I only wish I could have had it for the remainder of my stay. I would recommend this hostel very highly and I can't wait to go back, just to visit with the lovely ladies that were working there! It was very easy to get via tram from Central Station. The place was always clean. I used the laundry service which was very convenient! I can't say enough good things about this hostel. I feel the location was good and safe, which is important for me since I was traveling solo. I also recommend going for breakfast to the Pancake Carousel nearby. (Pancakes in Amsterdam are not what Americans call pancakes, they are Crepes!) There is also a grocery store near the hostel if you want to purchase items to cook. Someone Left a "bad" review below which was a shocker to me. I can only guess that they never stayed at a hostel before & did not know that people at all hostels come in all hours of the night, that is why you bring ear plugs! A hostel is not the same as a hotel, nor are the prices. This place is fantastic!
- 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
