Lonely Planet review

Amsterdam’s first self-proclaimed ‘boutique hostel’ plays up its salacious past (the building was once home to a high-end brothel) in some themed bunk rooms, while others are more demure with delftware or windmill themes. Private rooms (check out the monarchy-themed ‘Royal’ room) have iPod docking stations and flat-screen TVs.

Amenities are way above typical hostel standard, with en suite bathrooms, in-room wi-fi, a relaxing back garden, well-equipped kitchen, book exchange and a super-comfy lounge for movie nights.

Our independent authors have visited Cocomama and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Southern Canal Ring.

Description provided by property

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.

Our rooms are decorated with different Dutch themes, to give you a real Holland experience. Youll find comfortable beds, lockers, power outlets and a shower in your room, but we really want you to come and hang out with us and other travellers in the common areas.

We're fortunate enough to have a large sunny garden where you can find some peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There's also a fully-equipped kitchen, free Internet, a movie corner and tons of activities organised by our staff.

We've got the cleanliness, professionalism and boutique style of a high-end hotel but without the stiff formality and prices. Not only will you be referred to by your first name but our friendly staff will go above and beyond to share their local knowledge and make your stay memorable and pleasant.

Feeling a bit homesick? Our cat Joop is a real friendly cutie and is waiting for you in our common area!
