This lady called Esther even said to her fellow recep to just ignore the q n take her own time 3 room is like a jail - dark, windows that can't be open, no heater/... More

Over priced. No plug sockets in rooms which are very dark, lighting is not great. It feels like the staff are judging you, they are unbelievably fake, although Leah on breakfast was really nice. They charge 1.20 for hot water!!! Breakfast is small, they charge you for a re-fill of your coffee, they offer 1 type of cereal- muesli. If... More

The hostel is good, always clean and the staff is really available. Breaksfeat is good with two choices each day. The location is good and fairly close to the center. You also can rent a bike there, and It's recommended. It's a cristian hostel, but no one is obliged to participate.

We wanted a quiet place so we were happy with Shelter Jordan. It's close to the tram and you can also rent bikes to get around. The staff was friendly. The kitchen had more food options than any hostel I've ever stayed at and at reasonable prices. Wifi was good. Beds were comfortable. If you're looking for a party hostel,... More

I have been here for one night and I think it was one of my horrible experience i have ever had during my vacation life. there was not any peace moment and you should have put you pillow into your ears holes due to noisy room.

If you go to amsterdam and want a little more than alcohol and drugs, this hostel is a good option. is a christian hostel, but that values ​​the organization, calm nonjudgmental. But you must be willing to follow the rules. And they still separate rooms womens quarters of men.

From check-in to check-out, the experience was great. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and helpful in finding everything you need,from... More

We enjoyed our stay at Shelter Jordan. The rooms were typical hostel, somewhat cramped and such. But we really enjoyed the atmosphere overall at the hostel – quiet and peaceful. We found the staff friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the Dutch food tasting in the evening (free of charge). The included breakfast is a nice touch, although not having access... More

Okay, so I didn't really look up much on this hostel before booking it. Cause we booked a little late, and didn't have too many options. While I understand that it's Christian hostel, but the no alcohol-drug policy doesn't gel well with, well, Amsterdam. On the downside, rooms were really small and cramped, the drug-alcohol restrictions and the limited facilities... More
