Hostelworld says:

Shelter City is a Christian hostel located near Dam Square, Central Station and the red light district. This drug- and alcohol-free hostel serves a highly praised free breakfast of hot and cold food. Our guests say they recommend staying here 'if you want a calm stay' in Amsterdam; it's located 'right in the heart of Amsterdam next to the New Market and [is] thus a good starting point to explore the city'. The staff have been called 'warm and welcoming', offering 'a safe and comfortable place to relax and meet other travellers'. We like their 'free and delicious' dinner nights.

Property Information:

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.

    I think the service at the check in, can be much more efficient. As before, i had to wait a long time before things were done. Even i was lucky to be the first person waiting.
