Amsterdam: Shelter City Christian Hostel

In a charming, historical townhouse, this low-key, Christian hostel is a minute away on foot from a metro stop, 17 minutes’ walk from the Anne Frank House museum and 2 km from the famed Rijksmuseum.

Basic rooms and dorms offer free Wi-Fi and shared, single-sex bathrooms. Dorms, sleeping up to 16 people, offer bunk beds and lockers (padlocks can be purchased). Some dorms are single sex, and some have partitions. Some rooms add en suite toilets.

Breakfast is complimentary. Other amenities include a quaint garden, which has a water feature, and a cafe with a games area. There are group activities, bikes for hire, and computers for guests’ use.


The best hostel experience I have ever had!!! This place is amazing and all the staff are very warm and willing to help. They have great atmosphere and I met a lot of friends there. The room is nice and tidy the bathroom is also clean. Free breakfast and events are a lot more than expected. Thanks to Shelter, I had an AMAZING CHRISTMAS NIGHT. If I go to Amsterdam again, I’ll stay in Shelter with no doubts.
