Shelter Jordan

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Our Christian hostel offers great value for money, with bed, breakfast, sheets, lockers and free WIFI included in the price. Enjoy our clean and comfortable accommodation and friendly international atmosphere. All our staff speak English and the reception is open 24 hours to help you and answer all your questions.

We're located in the city centre, a 20 minute walk from Central Station and a 2 minute walk from the Schiphol airport bus stop. Most of the main tourist attractions are within walking distance and there is a tram and bus stop just 100 metres around the corner

Shelter Jordan has single-sex rooms with 4, 5, 6, 8 and 18 beds. The larger dorms are divided into smaller sections to provide the privacy you'd like. Compared with our sister hostel in Amsterdam, Shelter City, Shelter Jordan is smaller (96 beds), is cosy, and is located in a quieter part of the city centre.

Youll 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. There is a large café where you get your free breakfast and can hang our during the day and evening. You can buy cheap meals or snacks here, or eat your own food. The hostel has a garden terrace and a great opportunities to relax and meet people from all over the world.

Our location in the quiet and picturesque Jordaan area makes it easy to explore Amsterdam. The hostel is close to the Anne Frank house, Leidse square and Dam square.

Experience real Christian hospitality!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Very friendly welcome. Great location in the centre of Amsterdam. It may look a bit expensive but great breakfast is included. A few computers with veeeeerrrrrryyyyyy slow internet connection. It is a Christian hostel, but not in-your-face Christian: there are bible readings and prayers for those who seek it, but if you don't: you're just as welcome.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Hotel Jordan is an easy to reach location about 15 minutes walk from the Dam Square walking in almost a direct line, and is only a few minutes with the tram.

The facilities are kept clean, and there is a large bathroom on each floor. There is excellent facilities to keep your belongings safe, a personal locker, and a room next to the reception where larger belongings can be stored. Despite this, there seems to be a relaxed atmosphere between workers and guests, and not too much concern about theft, although precautions are taken.

The Cafe is both a dining room and a lounge, drinks being sold through the evening and also small snacks for a reasonable price. The volunteers at the hostel live on site and spend time in this cafe too both working and just spending the evening. As such, this hostel is a nice place to spend some time awake at, and not just sleeping after a day of exploring the city.

I would recommend this hostel, and will be sure to return there in the future.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The hostel is well located and that was my main reason for chosing it - The room was clean and the bed OK - washroom and toilet were good too - I had the cold breakfast which was a bit disappointing - the one with pancakes looked more substantial
My critisism concerns the staff - as the hostal has a no smoking and drinking policy - on the night I stayed I returned to my room in the evening to find the room full of dope smoke and a semi conscious room mate on his bed next to a half emptied bottle of red wine - and a whole stash of unsmoked weed - it was virtually impossible to breath - and an other younger room mate was looking very sheepish - On reporting all of this to the reception staff - someone came up to the room, removed the offending articles but made no offer to move any of the other residents into another room - consequently we had to spend a freezing cold night with the windows wide open
The next day after checking out - I returned to the hostel to pick up my bag which I had left in the [so called] secure baggage room - my co resident found that his bag had been moved and his laptop had been stolen - despite the fact that the reception desk is right opposite - when I asked if I could go into the cafe area to exchange addresses I was told that this was not allowed since I had already checked out - my friend was upset about the theft and was shown very little sympathy - and directed in the direction of the nearest police station - since my train journey was 2hours later I was literally walking around in the rain for the next 2hours

by all means stay at this hostel for it's location and cleanliness - if you are a Christian even better - but in my opinion don't expect to find much Christian spirit

Its a very nice hostels, clean and with great facilties... but be aware of the fact that it is a christian hostel... so is verey different from the city enviroment. I admit it was quite strange to be in a hostel like jordan in amesterdam.

if you are looking for a quiet( girls one floor, boys in another) , clean and nice hostel, jordan is the place.
