    Perfect! I especially apreciated the cleanliness and the fresh air in the dorm (often dorm rooms are very stuffy, here we had the window open enough to air the place; it wasn't cold in the room and besides we had warm blankets).

    Very Good

    Really nothing special. there's so many other better hostels in Amsterdam, so unless you're really set on the breakfast, then I say go for it, but it's oddly super religious and you feel a bit odd for not participating in some of the religious activities.

    Staff were very loud and inconsiderate while i was sleeping. Slamming doors constantly while cleaning. It was hard to get some sleep because im from a different time zone. I asked the staff to keep it down and they ignored my request. Definitely not going to stay here.

    Bed bugs. And after conversations with staff, this is clearly a recurring problem.

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.
