I was very amused and surprised of this hostel. The staff is very dedicated and very open. This is a Christian minded Hostel and you should then also (to my belief) take part in the meditation or discussion in the evening as of 19.30. The facilities are very clean. In my room though the floor was a bit sticky (maybe somebody spilled something), but it wasn't mobbed the next day. They do hoovering every day. But overall a big plus to this hostel.

Though the paid staff is great, the volunteers who are welcomed for cleaning damage the image of the hostel being a christian hostel, with unasked for "future telling"with tarrot cards, and unasked for recomendations for coffeeshops (to buy drugs) by others. Staff though understood my complaints about this, and dealt with it in the right way, But for me it was a reason to cancel my stay alltogether and decide not to go back anymore.

I loved my stay at Shelter Jordan, the staff were really friendly and helpful and I liked the fact they add little events for the hostel guests and the staff to do together.

Very sheltered place, great meeting place with people from all over the world. You can even sit in the big living room never getting bored. Location is really quiet, outside the business of the town centre, although it's just minutes away with the tram. The lockers in the dorms are big enough for a back pack, everything is clean, the air is good, just a place where you feel you're in the shelter of the Almighty,

Living at Shelter Jordan was perfect. The staff was very nice, the hostel was very clean and its location was perfect as well. The tram station was close and the region was a quiet one. My stay was perfect. ☺

The hostel itself is nice! however the bathrooms need a good clean and there isn't enough room in the dorms. This means you are constantly stepping onto someone. The free breakfast is a plus! Also the hostel does not have a kitchen only a microwave and fringe. This means cooking meals is hard especially when it costs money for hot water.

It's a hostel near the centre, there are only 15-20 minutes walking to the central station, but I like it because we decided to see Ana Frank house, the Damm place, and some important places near it. Good location, confortable, with 2 options in the breakfast and there are cheap possibilities for lunch or dinner, too. I liked the people working inside it and I met new guys . It's a good option to sleep some nights and visit Amsterdam.

I loved my stay here! Not only did I feel a sense of connection with the members of staff: they went out of their way to help me and other guests. The food was good and the intention to meet guests needs beyond reproach. I felt really safe and I'll be back!

It's a great budget hostel. People are nice and friendly in check-in and answering any tourism information. I have a great night staying in Shelter. It is much appreciate if kitchen is provided to make our own meal.

Really good hostel. Has all you need, very safe and perfect location. Surprisingly cheap, perfect for people on a budget. Only negative point: a guy was cleaning the ladies showers at the busiest time of the day. I've never seen that anywhere before and found it really inappropriate....
