Hostelworld says

Shelter Jordan is a no-drug and no-alcohol Christian hostel near Anne Frank House and the rest of central Amsterdam. Our guests say \'if you\'re not into partying, drugs or drinking, this is a great place for you\' and have recommended this hostel for lone travellers as it offers a safe atmosphere and single-sex dorms on separate floors. Visitors say \'the people are friendly and the community area is open until late, so there is plenty of time to socialise with others\'. We like that the hostel offers free breakfast as well as lunches and dinners for around â'¬6.

    Nice place, staff are all very kind and all volunteers. Make sure to request breakfast to go if you’re leaving before breakfast time starts! That was great.

    This place is amazing! The staff is incredible, the rooms are very clean, the bathrooms are nice and the atmosphere is very welcoming! There are lockers to keep your stuff, and for larger items there is a separate room. The breakfast is delicious! I would recommend this hostel to anyone wanting to stay at a quieter hostel that’s in a safe area! It’s within walking distance to a lot of the city’s attractions, and even close enough to the red light district if you’re looking to explore at night!

    Almost everything are good for me. The Only thing is the loud banging doors inside the bathroom area because all the doors will close by itself. They are really very LOUD. It’s also something that can be fixed if they want to.

    This hostel was really good value for money, near the trendy area of Jordaan and the city centre, around 20 mins walk. The staff were really helpful and friendly, and everything was clean. A great central budget stay.

Shelter Jordan says

I'd say what makes us so different from the other hostels in Amsterdam is that there's no alcohol or drugs here, just a quiet and friendly atmosphere in the beautiful Jordaan area of the city. We also have a ton of extras, such as our free hot breakfast, free walking tours, free Bible discussion groups, free weekly movie nights and special events at Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving.
Anne Frank House is only 500m from here and Dam Square, Leidseplein and the Rijksmuseum are also within walking distance. Personally I recommend checking out the 'hofjes' (hidden courtyards) around the Jordaan area.
Our hostel is ideally suited for those wanting to get a good night's sleep and visit the museums instead of going out to party.
