  • Great hostel. There is a nice outdoor area and the kitchen and lounge are very relaxed and inviting. The staff was also super nice. As for location, the hostel is in a slightly more residential area away from the touristy city center. A little farther to places like Anne Frank's house and Jordaan but totally worth it if you want a calmer, less-touristy experience.

  • This hostel was great! Friendly and helpful staff, cute rooms, large kitchen and garden on the bottom floor. Have to take the tram to get to most places downtown (not in the center), but it was still in a great area. The cat Joop is very friendly. Would stay here again.

  • Cocomama was simply awesome. Fantastic staff, awesome people, great location, bathrooms cleaner than most hotels I've stayed in, etc. etc. ad nauseum. I usually stay in Airbnb's when I travel, but I'm so happy I decided to make an exception this time around. And what's more, this was a business trip. If you're hesitating, don't. Book your room, and thank me later.

  • Excellent hostel. The people made it for me. Lovely staff, especially Matt and Undine. Very helpful. Real good vibes in the kitchen area with its fridge stacked full of beer and honesty box. Clean and warm. Can't say I have stayed in many better hostels.

  • Cocomama was a really cosy place although the spacing of the bed can be a little cramp for me but thats because i am claustrophobic. But other than that, the staffs made an effort to make the hostel a very comfy and friendly environment. The staffs were really pleasant and helpful and lovely. They make you feel at home and welcome.
