Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Our Christian hostel offers great value for money, with bed, breakfast, sheets, hot showers and a locker for the best prices in Amsterdam. We've got clean and comfortable accommodation and friendly international atmosphere. Providing so much for so little, Shelter City is definitely the best deal you can get in Amsterdam.

We're located in the city centre, a short walk from Central Station. Most of the main tourist attractions are within walking distance.

Shelter City has single-sex dorms with 4, 6, 8, 10 and 16 beds. The larger dorms are divided into smaller sections to provide the privacy you'd like. The 4-bed rooms are available with en-suite facilities (private shower, toilet and sink) or with shared bathroom facilities. Our budget price includes breakfast, sheets, hot showers, a locker and all taxes. These are the best-value beds in town.

You will get so much more than just a good night's sleep at an affordable price. The hostel not only provides excellent facilities, but also has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. All of our international staff speak English and will be pleased to help you. The hostel has a courtyard and a great cafe where you can get something to eat or drink, relax and meet people from all over the world, or use the Internet.

Our location in the historical Nieuwmarkt area makes it easy to explore Amsterdam. The hostel is close to Central Station, Dam square, small Chinatown and the Red Light district.

Experience real Christian hospitality!

Please note that our hostel is best suited to those between 15 and 40 years of age. Children under three years of age are not permitted. Please see our T&Cs below before booking.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Very good location, clean hostel, nice staff. The only problem we had was that we were not staying in rooms as we booked online. We wanted to be 2 in a 4-bed room but we were splitted as there were groups of 3 people that were preferred.
