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.
Please read our T&Cs below before booking.
Cocomama: Amsterdam's Awesomest New Hostel: Feel right at home at this brand new hostel in the heart of Amsterdam. Chill out in the large and sunny garden, cook your own meal in the fully equipped kitchen and meet other travelers during one of the many activities the staff organize.
Please note that our reception works from 9AM to 9PM, if you arrive outside these hours, let us know in advance so we can take care of you. Official check in time is 2PM, and check out time 12PM. We don't have any weird curfews.
What could be more exciting and unique than to stay in a place that was Amsterdam's most famous brothel back in the day? Cocomama is housed in a monumental building, complete with high ceilings, chandeliers, and lots of daylight. On top of that we were fortunate enough to have a large garden where you can find some peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
You will find a combination of all the good things a star-rated hotel has to offer with the personal touch of a small hostel. Taking the cleanliness, professionality and boutique style of a high end hotel and combining this with the free internet, fully equipped kitchen for own use, movie corner, open informal atmosphere, and organized hang-outs of a hostel you will find yourself in the perfect spot to explore a new city. Not only will you be referred to by your first name, inside knowledge of the city is provided at any time, the staff will go above and beyond to make your stay memorable and pleasant.
Please note we do not accept bookings of groups larger than 5 people. If you decide to make a booking for your group anyway we retain the right of canceling your booking without a refund of your deposit.

Amsterdam is known for its vivid and liberal parts of town; Cocomama, however, is situated in a trendy and upscale part of the city centre. All of the tourist attractions are within walking distance or a short tram ride away. Close to Museum Square, the famous Albert Cuijp market and Leidse square, we cannot imagine a place more suitable to start your journey.
