“Well worth the journey and the cost!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Not just for the young ones; for the young at heart too. My sister and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at Cocomama and can only say good things about the place. The people are incredibly friendly, both staff and other guests, love the 'honestly shelf' in the kitchen, fresh clean sheets on each of the beds as well as clean bathrooms and decants showers. We used both the bikes and trams to get around and were really impressed with how friendly everyone was, either those that weren't smoking!

Cant recommend it enough and hope to return. Thanks Cocomama x

Cocomama is a really nice place in Amsterdam. It's set on a great location: near the tram and near nice spots of Amsterdam. Nice people, good atmosphere, sociable common room and great bedrooms: very comfortable beds (but véry small...). However, a price of 38 euros for a bed in a 6 bed dorm, is far too much, even though it's a really nice hostel and I know house prices in Amsterdam are very very high, you simply can't ask that for a bed in a dorm with even no breakfast included (there are cereals, but no milk or yogurt to put in in for example). I slept very well there and I like the place (and it was my own choice to sleep here), but to be fair to your guests, I'd say: increase the price with 25%.

The staff was very friendly, and if you don't mind walking then this is a great place outside of where all the action is going on in Amsterdam. I walked everywhere, and if the weather is nice then it is no problem. The rooms are much smaller than the average hostel, but the bathrooms are much cleaner than the average hostel.

I stayed at this hostel back in June 2011 for my first ever trip to Amsterdam. I was not disappointed. The staff are extremely friendly, and the feeling is very homey. The dining area downstairs provided some basics for people to use while making their breakfasts or dinners. There are areas for dining and also for hanging out. The backyard was quaint and had lots of greenery.

The one thing that really stands out about this place is the room decor! My room was apparently "lust" themed with interesting pictures hanging up everywhere if you get my drift. ;) The en suite bathroom was clean and the bed was comfortable. The vibe was overall very chill. I would definitely stay here again!!

Room Tip: Stairs are very steep, be prepared to carry your luggage up and down.

A great staff and homey downstairs lounge and kitchen make for a great place to meet people and spearhead exploration of Amsterdam. Awesome location next to the best street market in Amsterdam. Overall an outstanding place to stay while visiting Amsterdam.

Cocomama was hands down one of my best hostel experiences ever. The staff are friendly, helpful, and easygoing. There's something going on every night and you'll definitely meet new people either at the lovely common area downstairs or by going for hostel events (like pub crawl). I travelled solo so this point was great. If you can handle dutch bikes then renting a bike from cocomama is your best bet for transport at 5euros a day. Other rental companies in amsterdam do something like 10euros for 3hours. Nothing much going on in the neighbourhood - the Albert Cuypstraat market is very nearby and also the supermarket so very convenient for getting snacks and other supplies. The place is easily accessible by tram, although I mainly walked everywhere (20min walk to most attractions). Also the resident cat is ADORABLE!!!!

I had to move rooms once but that wasn't too much of a problem. Beds are comfortable and warm with duvets, toilets are clean, and each room is nicely done up with a theme. If you are a light sleeper try to avoid the rooms on the first floor as you can hear the front door slamming every time someone comes back and people talking at the reception in the morning etc. I slept very well except one unfortunate night when there was a guy snoring really loudly in the same room....

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
