The hostel was expensive if you compare it to what you are actually getting; the rooms only had one socket to plug the chargers (even though it was an 8 person dorm). They offered to charge your phone at the reception but it was not practical. I had a little accident while in Amsterdam, and I asked at the reception if they could lend me their phone to call a doctor, and they said "No" and when I asked for directions to a public phone nearby, they did not know. That wasn't very helpful.

Everything was great (especially that it's very clean), but I hope next time there is wifi in the rooms.

In a very nice area, hostel jordan seems far from just about everything but amsterdam is pretty small, so don't feel hesitant to stay here! Food is good, staff is nice, and though it is definitely a Christian hostel I never felt pressured about religion.

I felt a little bored but I guess it's what I signed up for, they don't allow drugs or booze. Otherwise it's great if you just want somewhere to relax and chill out and not deal with partygoers.

Very well located. Good rooms and beds, with a locker next to each bed. The bathroom is nice. The breakfast is also very good.

All good. Staff was super friendly, were smiling and seemed genuine from the heart. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a safe place to stay...they are making every nationality feel at home and try to help as much as they can

Small number of reception staff were unfriendly and couldn't careless to do more than just their very basic job, not even care to giv a smile. It will be good if the Shelter Jordan staff can be more familiar with sister hostel- Shelter City whereabouts as I was not given the correct instruction while trying to locate City from Jordan

Shelter Jordan was good, it was what I expected from a hostel. I didn't know breakfast was included in the price and it was nice to have it included. Location is also convenient, it takes 20-25 mins to get to centre by walk.

There weren't enough plugs in the room to charge phones, etc. Being able to buy no-queue tickets for museums at the hostel was really helpful.

Very nice staff. Good meals offered. Bathrooms need a deep intensive cleaning. Great location. Lockers in rooms are a good size. It is a Christian hostel that feels safe in a city that is famous for drugs. No over religious pressure at all. Just nice people!

Male and female dorms are separated (women 1st floor, men 2nd one) but the ALL floors are completely prohibited for one or for the other gender. Quite Incredible i think. What are they afraid of that we can not even go to the 'female corridor'? Thanks God, i'm gay. Except for that, good place to stay. Really nice breakfast.
