  • Great place to stay, our room was one of our favourite hostel rooms we've ever had - loft style with THE comfiest bed of all time. Location is in a nice neighbourhood, a bit of a walk to the centre but if you don't mind that - it was great to be away from some of the craziness, and Rembrandt square is close enough for pubs etc. as well. Hostel was clean and welcoming with lots of activities to see Amsterdam.

  • I'm actually considering coming back to Amsterdam at the end of my trip not only because I'm in love with the city, but because Cocomama was the best experience I could have asked for. Kimberley, I love you! Joop, you're the cutest!

  • I LOVED Cocomama. Great environment and staff. The hostel felt more like a family atmosphere than a regular hostel. The rooms were great, the beds were very comfy, and the kitchen/communal space was inviting, cozy, and made it very easy to meet other travelers. Not a party hostel, so you can easily chill and relax there, but it's also very easy to meet people and go out partying. Definitely a unique and special hostel. I would go back in an instant!

  • Everything was great! It was everything I could have asked for. In particular, Jo, Nikki, and Shannon were especially friendly and helpful and went beyond the call of duty.

  • Coco Mama is one of The best hostels in Amsterdam. The staff is amazing ( including the lovely cat) and the rooms have plenty of space. Will recommend to anyone coming to Amsterdam!

  • Really cute and cozy hostel. Great staff and service!! I'd highly recommend it to someone who wants to stay in a quieter part of town, away from the crazy city centre. It's about half an hour walk or 15 minute tram to Dam square/centraal, in a pretty quiet area :) It's not for anyone looking for a wild time though! Met some really great people in the cute little common room :) Had an awesome stay in this amazing city!! Loved it. I'll be back!

  • Great hostel with a great vibe! The staff that work here are very friendly and super helpful. Has a good common area that's a great place to chill and meet other travellers staying at the hostel. The staff also organise nightly events that is a great way to meet new people and experience what Amsterdam has to offer. Defiantely staying here next time I'm in town. Cheers!

  • After the first "shock", we acclimatized ourself in our little cave in the basement. If you're lucky enough to get this little "cosy" room, you'll know what we're talking about. Nevertheless, Cocomamas siting is to be recommended and we had a great time in Amsterdam! Cheers.

  • I stayed in a four person dorm. All in all its a good hostel. It's it the De Pipe neighborhood which has the Heineken Brewery and Albert Culpa street market near by. There's a tram stop right in front that can take you to Dam square and other popular locations. I would stay there again.
