Stay

CocomamaAmsterdam, The Netherlands

It’s not every night you get to bed down in a former brothel. If the walls of Cocomama could talk they would have some sordid stories to tell, but fear not, you won’t find any icky notches on the bedposts here.

Touted as Amsterdam’s first boutique hostel, Cocomama combines the elegant style of a luxury hotel with more informal comforts. Located in the heart of the city, the building boasts high ceilings, chandeliers and quirky Dutch ornaments hanging from the walls.

Travellers can keep to themselves or hang out in the ‘movie corner’ with Joop, the resident cat. Go for a private pad and choose between the Dutch-themed rooms – think tulips and forests – or grab a bed in the ‘red light district’ dorm.

  • Queen-size bed (in a private room)
  • Ensuite bathroom
  • Linen
  • Towels
  • Hairdryer
  • Coffee and tea
  • Free wi-fi
  • Room safe

Mixed dorm beds start at around US$30 per night, while private double rooms will set you back around US$85.
