  • friendliest and most helpful staff I've ever encountered in a hostel! Incredibly welcoming and refreshingly classy yet comfortable. Would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to anyone travelling to amsterdam!

  • This is a really nice hostel and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. The staff were incredibly helpful (especially Kristina) and the atmosphere was more like a home that a hostel. The hostel's location is ideal for visiting the Heineken brewery, Van Gogh museum and Rijksmuseum. The other main tourist attractions are within a reasonable walk or accessible by the tram which runs outside the entrance. Room was very clean with a large modern bathroom and power sockets at each bed.

  • Very close to the tram, the location is perfect. Is a good place to get to know travellers from all over the world. And the night activities help the ones that come here by themselves

  • Very fine stay - nice kitchen, good location, great staff. Comfortable beds, good showers, lockers in rooms. Only comment: no breakfast, but a nice spacious kitchen and lounge with and free pasta available for cooking.

  • I absolutely loved Coco Mama and will stay there again when I go back to Amsterdam! I stayed in one of the 6 bed dorms which was a bit cramped (though the curtains on the beds offer privacy) but it was never an issue because the common area downstairs is very nice and always full of friendly faces and comfy couches. Don't stay here if you don't want to make friends, hang out with people, and pet the cat. The hostel is within walking distance of almost all the places you'll want to go.

  • Cocomama's is AWESOME! The staff are great - warm, authentic, and highly skilled at creating a welcoming environment. I was very happy with my time there, and my sense was that most of the travelers felt likewise, which also contributes to the great atmosphere. Location is great, kitchen is very well set up, a very interesting mix of people to meet...Cocomama's is a lovely "home away from home" while in Amsterdam...thank you to everyone who helps create this wonderful space!
