If you're in Amsterdam for fun, party or just to have a pleasant experience, don't stay in this hostel. I was in Europe for 6 weeks with 3 friends and it was unanimously our worst hostel. It was really expensive for a shared room with 16 people with dirty washrooms and really not a smart staff who don't really care... More

I went there with my mum for Christmas and it was very good! The staff is friendly and welcoming, the beds are clean and confortable, the main room for dinner, breakfast and chill out is very nice and you can eat whenever you want so it was very handy. The staff helped us to rent bikes and book cruises! Very... More

This hostel is quintessentially what a hostel should be friendly welcoming and homely. I would definitely return to this place in a heartbeat. The main area is great and makes a good area chatting and the food prices for the cafe are very reasonable.

Shelter Jordan is a great place to stay if you're a young traveler trying to save some money by staying in a hostel. It's cheap and has everything you need. The rooms/bathrooms were clean and the free breakfast was good as well. The staff is very friendly and will help you with whatever you need (directions, tips, recommendations, etc.). The... More

Stayed in the Artis room with 6 girls. Cleanliness of the room was good, bathrooms were decent. Communal bathrooms for the whole floor (not my favorite). Friendly, helpful staff. NO ALCOHOL OR DRUGS IN HOSTEL. Decent location for walking place to place.

I've stayed at Shelter Jordan a couple of times and always had a great stay. It's about half an hour walk from Centraal station or get the tram to the junction of Rozengracht and Marnixstraat which does not take along at all. There are separate floors for ladies and gents. I stayed in a 6 man dorm and there was... More

You get the bare minimum. A room, a place to shower, and a very light, free breakfast. They do not even allow you to -pay- for extra breakfast. If you want more food, they only give you plain bread and nothing else. I don't eat bread often. You have to sign up for dinner ahead of time. If not, too... More

Also walking distance from Centraale Station I dragged my 12.5kg luggage with no problem but dragging luggage will be a bit bumpy anywhere in Amsterdam because of the pavement. There are... More

I enjoyed my two day stay at the Christian shelter. Breakfast was amazing especially the eggs and cheese. Staff was really helpful and they do have plenty of fun christian activities to do such as bible discussion, bible studies and etc. Amazing location and wonderful service.
