I went with some friends to Amsterdam for a weekend... the place is clean and the staff is really nice and gentile, always trying to help you and give you advises about the principal tourist attractions in the city. The breakfast is included and is very good. I stayed in the 18 female dorm, which was big and comfortable, special... More

Shelter Jordan was lively and had a friendly atmosphere. Check-in was smooth, and luggage was kept secured in the Luggage room with tags, all the luggage was checked again with the help of luggage tags, so the Hostel was secured to the best levels IMHO. We were 18 bed Male Dorm, Lockers were large enough for a backpack, it took... More

My 3 female friends and I booked this hostel as we thought it would be a good location and a safe place for us to stay. With its Christian ethos,we thought the staff would be kind and helpful. We were VERY wrong. A week before our stay, one of our friends went to the hostel to ensure we were all... More

I'm not going to lie, I only stayed at this place because it was the only place with available bookings. I don't exactly love their old-fashioned rules about segregation (separating based on gender) nor prohibition (no alcohol or cannabis). I met up my friend whom is of the opposite gender, and we both left for a place that wasn't stuck... More

Nice couple of nights I had there. And the staff when we staying in the hostel were friendly. However I left my prescription glasses there, I know my fault, but I rang 3 days after staying at the hostel asking if they had been handed in. Speaking to a girl at reception told me that they were handed in and... More

Very close to the railway station. The hostel is clean and very well maintained. I stayed in the 8 bed male dorm with 4 of my other friends. The bed was comfortable and each one of us had a sperate small cupboard. The reception is helpful and friendly. The bathrooms were also clean and tidy. This is a catholic hostel... More

We arrived late at night and didn't have any reservations. Fortunately they had some space in a four female bed room. They were very nice at the reception, but you have to know that this is a catholic hostel so in case you drink or smoke this is not allowed on the hostel. They also have talks every night about...
